Work wasn't crazy. But I am trying to get sick. Every morning I wake up and I've got the sniffles and sneezes like crazy. Then I'm fine for the day. Then about 9:30/10 pm I start up with the sniffles and sneezes again. Ugh. But it's not turning into a full blown cold. Just enough to make me miserable. Ugh. Anyway, despite that I thought I'd go visit my Grandfather yesterday. He had pneumonia a few weeks ago and he hasn't been up to traveling. So I surprised him and went to visit. It was great. :P
And lastly we've had some great weather! It even went to the positives by Thursday/Friday. +4 we made it to!
I've been seeing some positive reviews for this one around blogland and I am going to read more m/m this year so I thought I'd start with this one. I'm glad I read it! It was good and I really like new adult m/m romances (anything NA in general LOL). The main characters were good. Both had angst but it wasn't crazy drama. I like how they worked on their stuff together. And Reese? Loved him! There's a sequel, but it's for a character I did not like at all, so I don't know if I'll read it. I do like to see if authors can redeem their characters. B+
When I heard this one was coming out, I became quite anxious to read it. I've only read a few CM titles but I really enjoyed them so I couldn't wait to see how she'd handle a contemporary. And Courtney did not disappoint! She has a woman of colour as her heroine, and the hero...oh I'll leave some things up for you to discover. Wena and I are going to buddy review this one. I couldn't put it down. B+
Another genre I didn't read a lot of in 2014 was historical romance. So since I'm all caught up on Sarah MacLean, I thought I'd delve into Tessa Dare's latest series. And I have to say, this one was a winner! There's a castle, an ermine for a pet, cosplay -LOL- and an amazing romance. I loved Izzy and Ransom. Izzy's personality and strength of will was the perfect foil to Ransom's wounded, brusque Beast in a castle. A solid A read.
That was my week. How was yours?
