I’ve read 8 new books this month (and only one of them was memorable!) and numerous old and beloved ones. This month I just needed to relax and enjoy the books I know (sometimes almost by heart because I re-read them so often!). I know of some people who give their books away once they have read them but that’s not me – oh, no!
Anyway, the books I would like to recommend are:
1. Grave Draven – Radiance
2. Lisa Marie Rice – I dream of danger
3. Lisa Marie Rice - Nightfire
What can I say about “Radiance” that I haven’t already said before? Draven wrote that as a serial on her website and I waited long and impatiently to be able to purchase the book. It is the story of Brishen and Ildiko, two “unimportant” people from royal families who are wed to seal a contract.
They are from different races and each conceives the other as ugly in appearance. But they manage to do what so many people can’t – to look deeper, to see what is good, strong in character and loveable in the spouse.
This book is about love and acceptance of differences but it is also suspenseful, violent and the best about it – there is at least another book coming up. “Radiance” ends on a bit of a cliffhanger, but it’s a mild one. The blurb of the next book sounds simply great!!
As for the other two books - I re-read them because I like them but also for the upcoming LLC. They are both great novels with strong alpha heroes and feisty heroines and I really recommend reading both series.
But what’s more – I re-read them because I’m so looking forward to meeting Lisa Marie Rice again. I met her at the first LLC and found her to be a warm-hearted and exceptionally humurous writer. I approached her when I met her and Shannon McKenna in a restaurant – something I would normally not do because I think it’s impolite. Still I did it and both ladies were so very friendly and we had a blast of a time during the first and second LLC.
I’ll be talking about Shannon McKenna’s McCloud series hopefully next month because I don’t want this post to get too long – so, consider yourself warned!
As for the LLC – I really hope to meet one or perhaps even several of the readers of this blog. I think you rarely have a chance to meet so many excellent, friendly and approachable writers anywhere else in a manageable distance in Europe.
So until next month I hope you have lots of good books to read!
Aurian: Thanks for the recommendation Karin! I have bought some Lisa Marie Rice novellas to try for Berlin myself and I sure hope I will enjoy them.
Read for #LLC2015
