Whatcha Reading? (59)

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

August 7th - 13th:


-- His Royal Favorite by Lilah Pace --

Really enjoyed the end to James and Ben's story. My review is already up HERE. 4 Stars

-- Dirty Rowdy Thing by Christina Lauren -- [Audiobook -- reread]

I was waiting for a audiobook hold to come in from my library (spoiler alert: it's still not in) so I decided to relisten to Finn and Harlow's story. I'm bumping up my rating from 4 to 4 1/2 Stars this time around; I think the only reason for the "lower" rating before was my mood at the time, because looking through my GR notes, I didn't have anything really to complain about -- as far as the story. Loved Finn, could definitely relate to him a lot, loved his mildly kinky and very sexy side (ropes, UNF), and Harlow was great, too.

Now the narration had one tiny problem for me -- Sebastian York does Finn's part, and York is a great narrator, don't get me wrong! His voice is heaven to listen to, and that was the case here, too. But his accents for Oliver (Australian) and Ansel (French) were hit and miss -- mostly miss. He'd start out with the accent during a line and lose it, or lose it part way through a scene with one (or both men) in it. Other than this, I very much enjoyed hearing York again.

Harlow's narration was done by Shayna Thibodeaux, who also did book 1 (by herself). I really like her narration and had no complaints. I thought she did a good job with the two accents, and didn't drop them randomly while the guys were talking.

Narration: 4 Stars
Story: 4.5 Stars
Overall: 4.5 Stars

Slow reading week again; still been in a mood where nothing's holding my attention and my mind is elsewhere.

So what are YOU currently reading?
