Dang it. I messed up the post (title). These are titles we read in June. *headdesk*
I’ve been stuck in the blah zone most of the month. I have a huge stack of review books and a TBR list a mile high and up until the last couple of days couldn’t pick anything and stick with it. Seriously, I HATE being in a reading slump. It wasn’t until last week that I got my mojo back after picking up a couple of excellent UFs.
Poison Promise by Jennifer Estep ** AMZ * BN * S * K
Gin and the gang are back and still kicking elemental bad guy ass. It’s not often that a series continues to grow and get better after the initial story arc has concluded. The Elemental Assassin series is eleven books in and STILL remains on my favorite UF series list. New characters are introduced in Poison Promise and something happens at the very end that has me excited to see where this series is going next.
Full review to come closer to release date.
Something Secret This Way Comes by Sierra Dean ** AMZ * BN * S * K
I’ve been eyeing this series for a while, but either haven’t had the time to start such an established, long series, or you know, something new and shiny caught my eye and I got distracted. Probably just got distracted, because that happens to me often. Anyway, BN had the first book in the series on sale this month for $1.99 and I was in my reading blah mood with everything else and thought this would be the perfect time to try something new. Now I’ve been sucked into the Secret McQueen universe and can’t get out. I’m currently on book four and have no desire to stop until I’m all caught up. I plan on doing a review/rec post on this series in the next couple of weeks.
June….what happened to you? How did you go by so quickly?? Not too many stars for me this month but here are a couple.
Evernight by Kristen Callihan ** AMZ * BN * S * K
I love the Darkest London series and jump on the new books pretty quickly. This one, this one was fantastic. I don’t think I can gush enough about how amazing it was. I cannot wait for more. Review to come.
Beast Behaving Badly by Shelly Laurenston ** AMZ * BN * S * K
My first audio recommendation for June. Charlotte Kane is an amazing narrator and does this series like nobody else could. She nails Blayne and Bo. I seriously think this one wouldn’t be as funny without her narrating it.
Then Came You by Jill Shalvis ** AMZ * BN * S * K
Book 5 in Jill Shalvis’s Animal Magnetism series and it renewed my love of the series. The combination of humor and the vet setting really works. I teared up a couple of times! Review here.
The Luckiest Lady in London by Sherry Thomas ** AMZ * BN * S * K
I was hesitant to start this one because sometimes I don’t connect well with Sherry Thomas’s book. No worries here. I was captivated. This was also an audio book for me and very well done. WTRW here.
