Well, we missed Friday the 13th with me doing Dallas. But we’re back this week with your turn to tell all what you’ve been reading this week (or last). Because of seniority, I get to go first.
This is kind of tough with so many books to choose from but I’ve got 2. First up is Ghosts and Roses by Kelley St. John. This is a Harlequin Blaze book and I have to admit I’ve generally skipped these because they are skinny (what a snob, hey?). But I was pleasantly surprised. This story is about a family of mediums that help ghosts cross over by helping them finish something. Gage Vicknair needs to rescue Makayla from a vengeful murderer. I started this book at the airport and finished it by the time I got home. It really made the time fly (groan). I will definitely be reading more of these.
The second book is Devil May Cry by Sherrilyn Kenyon. This continuing Dark-Hunter series features Sin, an ex-God and Katra, daughter of a godess, who is sent to kill him. I absolutely could not put this book down. Sherrilyn nailed this one with her tightly woven story rich with mythology and characters that made my heart ache. Positively, this is going in my reread pile. Devil May Cry will be out in August.
In my car I am listening to Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden. Taking place in 1929, it is the story of a nine year old girl, sold into slavery and trained as a Geisha. I know some people loved this book, but it was too sad for me. Now if she would have grown up to build a society that trained all the men to entertain and perform tasks for the benefit of women, I might have a different opinion of this book.
On my iPod I have A is for Alibi by Sue Grafton. This is the first book in the Kinsey Millhone series and even though I’ve read all the books, I wanted to go back and listen it. Kinsey is a tough private detective, hired by a woman who is out on parole from a conviction of murdering her husband, to follow a trail leading to the real killer. A mystery that keeps you guessing.
Bottom Line: It’s been 2 weeks, so you should have lots of books to talk about.
