Ack! August!


Can you believe it is August already?? I have to say this is one of my least favorite months of the year. By this time the joy of warm weather has worn off, and I’m dying for some cool air. It’s too hot to work on my knitting or crocheting or spinning (there’s something so repulsive about having a pound of wool yarn or fleece spread over my lap when it’s so freaking hot outside), and sewing a renaissance costume is out too. The yards of fabric, the heat of the iron and sewing machine… Yuck. Of course, this August will be a little nicer for me because Wolf’s Princess comes out tomorrow. One of the best things to do when the weather is hot is read. I’m going through my kindle but can’t seem to find anything I really want to read. 41 book unread on my kindle, and not a one appeals to me!! This might be because I’m DYING to read  some that aren’t out yet. For instance…

That’s only three books, which won’t keep me reading for an entire 30 days. I’m always looking for good reading material, but my budget tells me I can’t afford to buy every book that catches my eye. I like to rely on friends to recommend stories they enjoyed. I like historical, fantasy, science fiction, inspirational, and some Young Adult, as long as it’s a good story and there is at least an element of romance. I love Anne Bishop, Elizabeth Hunter, Grace Draven, Wen Spencer, and Sharon Lee/Steve Miller among others. Help me out. What stories or series do you recommend?

  • Pick up anything by R.E. Butler. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised. Kristy K Jame’s series The Coach’s Boys is one of my favorites as well. ANYTHING by Elizabeth Reyes! You’ll thank me. (wink)

  • Sounds good, Shelley! I haven’t read any of those.

  • I like short romantic, sexy and erotic books about shifters and vampires by authors like Celia Kyle, Lola Kidd, Lara Adrian, Jennifer Ashley, Evangeline Anderson (Brides of the Kindred) and Terry Bolryder.
