It's not that I haven't been reading...

I was looking over my blog and I realized it's been two weeks since I've posted anything, and even longer since I've posted a review. Well. I *have* been reading. This is me after all. When am I ever not reading? I just haven't been reading any YA, which is what I usually review here. So here's the lowdown on what I've read so far this year:

-"Frost Burned" (Mercy Thompson #7), by Patricia Briggs
-"Hunting Ground" (Alpha and Omega #2), by Patricia Briggs
-"Fair Game" (Alpha and Omega #3), by Patricia Briggs
-"Wait for You," by J. Lynn
-"Harvard Hottie," by Annabella Costa

That's 3 urban fantasy, one New Adult, and one romance. The three Patricia Briggs books were great, though I prefer the Mercy Thompson series over Alpha and Omega. "Wait for You," I guess I could've reviewed here since it's New Adult, but I just didn't like it enough to bring myself to care about writing a review. It was schmaltzy when I wanted depth and the main character frustrated me, though I'll admit it was entertaining at times. "Harvard Hottie" was charming up until just about the end, when it took a turn I didn't like and it lost me after that.

So, yeah. Five books so far this year and none of them YA yet. But that will soon be remedied, as I just started "Across a Star-Swept Sea," which I'm really looking forward to. I'm just hoping I don't have to remember what happened in "For Darkness Shows the Stars" to get what's going on, because although I enjoyed FDStS, I read it way too long ago to remember what happens in it. Has anyone read it yet? What did you think?


  1. Why don't you review the non-YA novels, too? I'd love to branch out beyond YA and quilt novels. Since I come here when I need a good book to read, it'd be great to have some more suggestions.

  2. You should review whatever you feel like on your blog! I've been going through a review slump as well even though I've read heaps of books. I guess I'm just a bit tired of having to verbalise my thoughts. Sometimes I just want to read something and enjoy it and then move on. Hopefully you enjoy your next YA book but I'd be happy to read any review you post.
