Well, since my last post, I have been reading...a lot! I am actually still on schedule with my Goodreads challenge...which is amazing in itself! Most of my reading has been historical romance, but I have completed two literary fiction novels, also. Here are my thoughts...
I don't really know how to describe my feelings about Olive Kitteridge. Don't get me wrong: I liked the book. It is a collection of shorter stories that are all connected to the character of Olive. The book is intense, however. I read it in almost one sitting, and I think that was a mistake. When I finished, I was left feeling emotionally exhausted and sad. I'm glad I read it, but I can't say that I would want to go through the experience again!
I picked up Guilty Pleasures after deciding that I needed a book with a bookish heroine. :) In any case, I thought this was a great historical. There is a lot of sexual tension but it is slow to build up. (That isn't a criticism by the way. I thought this was an excellent book.) What I loved best about this story is that the heroine is super smart and refuses to drop at the feet of the hero after he has been a complete jerk.
LOVED this book. Talk about a great set of characters and a ton of fun! I recently had the honor of spending some time with Julia Quinn, and she is as delightful as her novels. I truly believe that you can't go wrong with her books. So, I adored this one!
Another fun book by Tessa Dare! I enjoy her writing and look forward to reading more of her books!
Sarah MacLean is one of the most popular authors out there in Regency-era romance. I had not read anything by her before now, but this was a great introduction!
Just catching up on the "Immortals After Dark" series! This has been on my shelf forever.
