Whatcha Reading? + NO Podcast (January 13th)



Saturday post where you can share with us what you are currently reading, or just finished, and I will share my brief thoughts on books that I read during the previous week.

Now in the form of a podcast. AKA, me rambling about the books in your ear. :)





Press play:



The Cold From Hell hit me this week, so no podcast! Depending on how I feel next week, there may not be one then, either. But at least you can still see what I read for the week and find the links to things that I would have talked about if my voice did not currently sound like an old woman who smoked 3 packs a day. *cries* I'll be back as soon as I can!



You can now find the podcast listed on:

The Highwayman by Kerrigan Byrne
Narrated by Derek Perkins
Between 3 - 3 1/2 Stars

Content warning: backstory (off page) of child molestation, abuse, and rape.
Liked the writing, but the blurb doesn't fit the book at all, and there were a lot of plot things kinda glossed over. Plus I had issues with him always leaving her tied up after they fucked which is a big NO NO (he can't stand to be touched, relates to his backstory). I don't care that he had to get out of there because of flashbacks and feels, you untie her first or tell someone to go help her.

Scoring with the Wrong Twin by Naima Simone
Releases January 16th
4 Stars

Hot and fun, though the last half dragged for me a bit and I had a few small quibbles through out.

One big no-no was a transphobic throwaway comment about his penis being what "made him a man". No, authors, no.

I really don't read YA anymore, but I do enjoy Carmack's NA titles and my library had it. I am liking it though!

Almost done, I'm enjoying Erickson's foray into romantic suspense (hacker style).

I've read a couple from Peterson before and liked them. Let's see how her new royal romance turns out.
