After I turned in a honking pile of writing, including short stories, a novella, and a novel mid-March, I was in desperate need of a break. And what do breaks mean? Book binge! :) So since I'm just getting back from the RT Booklovers Convention and haven't quite recovered my brain yet, I thought I'd share my favorites from my most recent book binge.
And I'd love to hear in the comments what you've been reading and loving lately.
Here goes, in no particular order:
Foreplay: The Ivy Chronicles by Sophie Jordan (New Adult)
Really sexy and fun AND only 99 cents right now!
Uninvited by Sophie Jordan (YA)
A few years in the future and they've learned how to identify the kill gene. What happens when a good girl tests positive for the gene? I loved the concept and I loved the book. I'm anxiously awaiting the sequel now.
Hard Time by Cara McKenna (erotic romance)
A convict hero. Yep. Every time I read a premise for a Cara McKenna book, I'm like, how is she going to pull that off? Then she does. She's become an autobuy for me.
Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry (YA)
Dude, I just went to grab the pic for this and it's on sale for 31 cents! Go buy it. I loved this book.
And for something a little different...
600 Hours of Edward by Craig Lancaster (lit fic)
This one follows a man who has Aspergers and OCD. It was recommended to me and I really enjoyed it. I'd say it's more a lit fic type book, but had a good pace and kept me reading.
Spin by Catherine McKenzie (women's fic)
I don't read a lot of women's fiction but this one sounded like a fun premise. Reporter goes undercover in rehab to get a story about a starlet but finds out she really needs rehab herself. Ended up really liking this one.
So those are my faves from the last few weeks, what are some of yours?
*As always, none of these authors solicited me for reviews. I don't take review requests and any recs I give are from my own personal TBR pile and based on my own leisure reading.
