My 2014 Re-reading challenge:

My 2014 Re-reading challenge:

I have 200 books marked as unread in Calibre, most of them written by authors that I have wanted to give a try for a long. And yet, none of them spark my interest. Normally, I would have shrugged it off, and assumed that it would change soon. Except that I have been in a reading slump since October. Which is very frustrating, when you like me used to  read 1 book/ day, if not more.. But then I started…

Embarrassment of Riches September round up

Embarrassment of Riches September round up

  I only read one book that qualifies, but I have DNF’d several books. And, I have started to purge my Kindle library of old freebies that I know I am unlikely to read. Which is a big step forward.   The book I finished : A Case of Imagination by Jane Tesh. It was well written, but it took awhile before it hooked me. The problem I had with it was that I liked the characters more than I…

WWW Wednesday September 18

To playalong, justanswer the following three (3) questions… • What are you currently reading? • What did you recently finish reading? • What do you think you’ll read next? I have been awhile since I posted one of these. But here is what I have read for the last week or so. I have been  craving Contemporary romance lately, so I decided to  re-read a bunch of old favorites. • What did you recently finish reading? Romantic Suspense is a…

Embarrassment of Riches May Round up:

Embarrassment of Riches May Round up:

I know, I know. This one is a bit late. A Taste of Magic by Traci Madison. This was an old, old freebie I had in my Kobo account. I read 5 pages before giving up on it. It just felt.. bland. Which is too bad, since I normally like lighter paranormal romances. Murder in the Marais by Cara Black This was another DNF. It was well written, and I liked the character so I’ll probably give it another try…

Embarrassment of Riches reading challenge April Round up:

Embarrassment of Riches reading challenge April Round up:

I have read a diverse number of genres this time around, which was a nice change from my ordinary Paranormal Romance, Fantasy and Urban Fantasy :). Oh, and I added a couple of DNF novels this time, since they fit the criterias. Plus, no one mentioned that you couldn’t add DNF’s to me. Second Star by Dana Stabenow Not perfect, but I liked Star, and the fact that she was more or less a burecraut. A Little Ray of Sunshine…

Friday Bargains: A lot of Historical mystery

Friday Bargains: A lot of Historical mystery

For me, autumn means I want to curl up on the coach and read mysteries. And, the publishers are appearantly reading my mind this week. Right now, the first three books in  Tasha Alexander’s Lady Emily’s series are discounted to 1.99 at Amazon. ( That price, in combination that Amazon didn’t add Whispernet fees, was enough for me to snap up the first one.) Joss Alexander’s Tainted Innocence is discounted to 1.99 at Carina Press, until September ends.  This is another…

Friday Bargains: Mostly Novellas and short stories

Friday Bargains: Mostly Novellas and short stories

Kobo has very nice round up of novellas, and short stories here, priced between 0.99-2.99. I am tempted to buy some, but I probably wont since I am trying to purchase less e-books. Amazon   offers 100 e-books for 3.99 this month.  The romance e-books sounds quite interesting, but  the one I really want is in Fantasy..  I might actually buy something from Amazon, instead of just downloading freebies. Poisoned Pen press offers several of their books for free right now. …
