Whatcha Reading? (67)

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.

Sun - Saturday:


-- Bonds of Justice by Nalini Singh -- [Audiobook, Library]

Yes, I'm still playing catch up on the series. I'm kicking myself for falling so behind over the years. It's the damn TBR mountain's fault though because I love this series as much today as when book 1 debuted!

You know what I love about this series? Okay, there's a lot, but here's a few. That the story is so complex and evolves with each book, that the romance is also great and Singh's writing is fantastic. I also love the books on audio, the narrator does a wonderful job. 4 1/2 Stars

Favorite quote:

"Take care of my heart won't you, Sophie? It's a little odd having it outside my body, but I'm planning to steal yours to make up for it."

-- Out of Nowhere by Roan Parrish --

Why did I wait so long to start Colin's book? You know I loved book 1 (review). I was afraid that I wouldn't love Colin because he was a first class dick to Daniel (his younger brother). But . . . Colin has his messed up reasons for his actions, and it all has to do with how he was raised, and how he internalized the homophobia around him. Don't get me wrong, he was still a dick to Daniel, and I kind of hate him for that, BUT I loved getting his story and seeing *why* he was that way. I loved this book so much and really fell for Colin and Rafe. I felt they were perfect together. There's all kinds of angst and some heart breaking moments in this one, so be prepared! But the romance and writing is great and I highly, highly recommend it! 4 1/2 Stars

By the way, I shared a lot of quotes on Twitter while reading this one. Find them all HERE.

Favorite quote:

“Armor’s not dangerous. That’s for survival. It’s weapons you have to watch out for. And you—” He strokes my lips with his thumb. “It’s mostly armor, Colin. And when you’re with me, the armor falls away. Who you are without it… it’s beautiful.”

Both 1 and 2 are still $0.99, but hurry!

-- Until Fountain Bridge by Samantha Young -- [Audiobook, Library]

From book 1, I was so looking forward to Ellie and Adam's story. But I have to say I was disappointed in their story. I know this is a novella, but I wish there had been more - if not a full length novel, then at least a short novel or something. Something MORE, I guess. I liked the glimpses into Ellie's years of crushing on Adam, but what I really wanted was to have a view of them finally realizing they wanted to try a relationship and the story progressing from there. All in all, it was a cute, quick read, but not my favorite in the series and I was left wanting more. Narrator was good (average). 3 Stars

Favorite quote:

"I want every piece of you. Even the stuff I missed without even knowing I was missing it.”
