#readinto16 This Chick is Reading: Cast in Honor by Michelle Sagara

 I was reading my morning blog by Cleopatra Loves Books and she referenced a challenge by another blogger BookerTalk to post a brief note about the book you were reading as 2016 started.  I will confess.  I fell asleep early, but had just started reading Michelle Sagara’s Cast in Honor, which is book #11 in the Chronicles of Elantra series.  I am also supposed to include a photo of myself reading the book, but since I’m reading it on my IPad, here is the artwork from the cover.

I challenge you all to also post a brief mention on your blog about what book you are reading as the New Year starts.  Tweet about it.  Let’s start a revolution! #readinto16. I’ll let you know my thoughts on this book in a few days.

Cheers, and Happy New Year!

This Chick Read- Sweep in Peace by Ilona Andrews

Sweep in Peace is the second book in the Innkeeper series by Ilona Andrews and the synopsis below is from the website Ilona-Andrews.com.

Dina DeMille doesn’t run your typical Bed and Breakfast. Her inn is a living entity that defies laws of physics, her fluffy dog is secretly a monster, and the only paying guest is a former Galactic tyrant with a price on her head. But the inn needs guests to thrive, and guests have been scarce, so when an Arbitrator shows up at Dina’s door and asks her to host a peace summit between three warring species, she jumps on the chance.

This Chick Read: Gail Carriger-Manners and Mutiny

How amazing would it be if you were a teenage girl sent to finishing school as punishment, but were in fact being sent to an Espionage school, in a dirigible!  This is the case for Sophronia, and the other young ladies sent to Madame Geraldine’s in the Finishing school series.  A prequel to the Parasol Protectorate series, this is the last of four books. Continue reading “This Chick Read: Gail Carriger-Manners and Mutiny”

This Chick Read: Eileen Wilks- Mind Magic

Mind Magic is book #12 in the World of the Lupi series, and if you haven’t read the others, you really need to read them in order because Eileen Wilks closely intertwines her characters, with storylines continuing from one book into another. Continue reading “This Chick Read: Eileen Wilks- Mind Magic”

This Chick Read: Shannon Stacey’s Undeniably Yours

I have mixed feelings about today.  It’s Thanksgiving, and my husband and I were supposed to be on the road to be with my family in the mountains in North Carolina.  However, we found out this weekend that there was a mixup with the property management company and they rented our house to someone else.  So, our plans have changed.   Continue reading “This Chick Read: Shannon Stacey’s Undeniably Yours”

This Chick Read: Named of the Dragon-Susanna Kearsley

Reading a Susanna Kearsley novel reminds me a bit of watching a period piece movie like Sense and Sensibility, or Two Rooms with a view.  At first I am sitting beside myself, my brain still turning about what happened at work that day, or a conversation I had with my husband over breakfast, but after a few moments, the descriptions of the city, the dialogue between characters, inserts itself into my mind until I am living it with them. Continue reading “This Chick Read: Named of the Dragon-Susanna Kearsley”

This Chick Read: The Guardians Trilogy or Cousins O’Dwyer?

Is it just me, or does Nora Roberts new novel Stars of Fortune: Book one of the Guardians Trilogy seem very similar to her Cousins O’Dwyer Trilogy? In Stars of Fortune, the six protagonists are strangers who “find” each other in Greece, where we find out, each of them are looking for the same ancient relic.  This is, of course, a love story, Continue reading “This Chick Read: The Guardians Trilogy or Cousins O’Dwyer?”

This Chick Read: Who doesn’t want to be a Rock Chick?  Or any Kristen Ashley character…

Although, if you’re a Rock Chick you have to be kidnapped, shot at, held hostage, kidnapped again, and possibly raped.  BUT!  You get to be a part of the greatest group of female friends ever.  I read Kristen Ashley’s Rock Chick series first out of all of her books, which is the correct thing to do because almost all of the rest of her series reference these characters Continue reading “This Chick Read: Who doesn’t want to be a Rock Chick?  Or any Kristen Ashley character…”
