Lest we forget the books for the covers, here, after a few weeks’ absence–sorry about that!– is our traditional Weekly Reading Round-Up.
As many of you know, I was off at the RWA conference all last week.
(These are from the Literacy Signing on Wednesday.)
I came back with piles and piles of books, through which I’ve been happily reading. Here’s the haul so far:
— The Dead Travel Fast, Deanna Raybourn.
No one so gorgeous should also be able to write so well! A beautifully executed tale of romance and suspense, it contains passages of pure lyricism as well as being a ripping good read.
— Insatiable, Meg Cabot.
Okay, so there’s a slight vampire theme going on here. I loved this book– a lively and clever spin on certain current trends.
— Crazy for Love, Victoria Dahl.
Two best friends, two brothers, one island…. A very fun contemporary romance.
— The Next Best Thing, Kristan Higgins.
Speaking of contemporary romance…. It can’t have escaped anyone’s attention that I’m a huge Kristan Higgins fan. I was thrilled to meet her at RWA and to snag a signed copy of The Next Best Thing.
— Some Like It Wicked, Teresa Medeiros.
What better match than a feisty Highland-bred heroine and a debauched rogue? This book has some of the best banter I’ve read in a while and one of the strongest heroines.
As you can see, I really lucked out in my picks this past week– and I still have a whole pile awaiting me!
