News From Tori: My Kindle took a crap on me this week so I didn’t get much reading down. I hate reading on my phone and computer and I was behind in reviews. I DNF’d Luca by Sarah Castille and that was disappointing because I really liked book one-Nico. Luca was an irritating caricature of the stereotypical Italian mafia alpha hero. The heroine was great though. I liked her wit and independence but not enough to keep reading.
Christine Henry’s Lost Boy is a brilliantly horrific and bittersweet retelling of Peter Pan and how one of his lost boys became his greatest enemy…and why. I really hope she writes a sequel. Review to come.
I’m currently in the middle of a Marjorie Lu Dirk & Steele re-read and so far enjoying my visit back to this world. I had forgotten how well written and imaginative this series is.
Up this weekend is Jeanine Frost’s The Sweetest Burn. I’ve been waiting quite a while for this follow up. I’ll let you all know how it goes.
News From Kini: North to You by Tif Marcelo– This was just an okay read for me. There were several small things that irritated me and made it hard for me to get through the book. The heroine had a problem and didn’t use common sense to fix it, that frustrated me.
Where I Belong by Molly O’Keefe– Just an okay read for me. I enjoyed it, but I was thinking there would be more to it. I felt a little let down on the suspense and I don’t even like suspense.
I am currently reading a short book for review but I haven’t picked it up since Wednesday so that is a bad sign. After I finish that I am reading The Hook Up by Tawna Fenske, out July 3. I have read a few of her books and enjoyed them, they tend to be more comedic, I think I need some comedy these days.
