What I've Been Reading (Jan. 26 - Feb. 1)

Wow, how did it get to be February already?  I swear it was just New Years the other day...wasn't it?  On to what I read this week and boy were there some good ones!

I began with Angels' Blood by Nalini Singh (review here).  This was a great read!! I don't know why I was so hesitant to begin this series...I suppose I wasn't sure how Nalini Singh could have anything else as good as the Psy/Changling series.  I still don't know how she does it, I just know that I am a fan for life.  The characters in this one are amazingly multi-faceted and while there are some very dark and gritty passages this book still made me smile and dive right into the next one...which I still haven't done.  Maybe this next week??

I followed Angels' Blood with Dragon Bound by Thea Harrison (review here) and then Storm's Heart (review here).  I have read both of these books before but find them so comforting and such a great way to spend time.  I am looking forward to reading the rest of the series which I have not read before.  The world in these books is fabulous and I cannot decide if I enjoy Dragos and Pia or Tiago and Niniane more.  Luckily I don't have to choose, I can have them all!  

I then went on a Kindle kick and read Beowulf and Roxie by Marisa Chenary which was interesting but kind of a mess at times, Before Dawn (a short story by Ann Bruce) which I enjoyed, Widdershins by Jordan L. Hawk which I really liked, Zero at the Bone by Jane Seville which I loved, and Warrior's Cross by Abigail Roux and Madeleine Urban which I very much enjoyed until the last third and then I felt it went awry somehow (I am planning at this point to write a longer review to post soon).

Lastly I read Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl.  With the movie coming out soon, I wanted to read the book (I always read the book before seeing the movie).  This book is a chunk and I sped through it in two nights and passed it on to a friend who also wants to read it.  I was sad that I did not own the second book in the series because the ending to this one???  Definitely made me want to dive right into Beautiful Darkness.  I have it on hold at my library and should be able to pick it up this weekend.  I plan on doing a longer review of this book although I may end up just doing a series review.  We'll see how it goes.

And that was my week.  Pretty great, huh?
