What I’m reading…

Posted September 15, 2017 by Kelly Apple in Reading / 0 Comments

I meant to do this post LAST week, but I got distracted. By a full series reread of J.C. Daniels’ Colbana Files series. (Which I CONSTANTLY refer to as the Kit Colbana series when telling people about it. Oops.)

So…what am I reading? A lot of urban fantasy. Starting with the aforementioned Colbana Files series, which ROCKED MY SOCKS OFF. I was lucky enough to get an arc of the 6th book (SO GOOD) and reading that one reminded me how much I enjoyed the series as a whole. So I went back and reread it from beginning to end. Even the soul-crushing 2nd book that broke me when I read it the first time. Yes, it’s true. Book 2 forced my cold dead heart to beat once more as I cried dramatically along with Kit and crew. (Seriously, though, there are some ROUGH things that happened in book 2, but watching everyone come back from that in the next books made it worth it. SO WORTH IT. I’m deeply invested in the series and characters after living through their pain like that.)

I’ve also been dipping into my beloved sci-fi romance. As one does. Namely the Intergalactic Dating Agency series. I picked up the Loving the Alien anthology and got a giggle out of aliens and humans stumbling their way through romance. I just REALLY like that sexy sci-fi.

Now I’m off to squeeze in another book or two before the weekend!

What I’m reading (the binge-worthy edition)…

I’m in full-on read-a-thon mode this week (Bout of Books, YO!) and I’ve been reading up a storm (and dabbling in a weird series of short scenes on the writing end, but that’s another story for another post. Maybe.). Reading is GOOD. FUN. EXCITING. Especially when you pick up a BIG series you’ve never read […]

What I’m reading…

I’m co-hosting the Bout of Books read-a-thon next week (PLENTY of time to sign up, if you’re interested!) and I *might* have gone a little crazy with an older series that’s been on my Kindle for AGES. See, I was trying to save my newer reads for the read-a-thon, so I picked up this older […]

What I’m Reading…

Another week, another batch of books. A couple weeks ago, I lamented my inability to get past the 6th book in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series in a reread. I can say, LOUDLY, that is no longer an issue. At least for this reread. It is DONE. I’ve read the first six books. Now I […]

What I’m reading…

With all the insanely productive writing I’ve been doing this month, my reading has slacked off a bit. HOWEVER, I’ve still managed to read some outstanding books in a variety of genres. Most of them were advance copies of upcoming releases, so this list will give you a few books to look forward to. Trust […]


There’s always that *one* book in a series…

There’s always that *one* book in a series…

Okay, so there isn’t *always* that one book, but even the most beloved of series can have a book or two you just don’t connect to. Especially if the series is long-running enough. For the record, I won’t ever look down on somebody for liking this particular book. Honestly, part of me can’t figure out […]

What I’m reading…

I’ve been diving into a TON of not-yet released books lately (although some HAVE come out at this point, but that’s the nature of things I suppose) and I’m having a blast wallowing in all these lovely fictional worlds. First and foremost, I’m equal parts sad and delighted that Hailey Edwards Gemini series has drawn […]

What I’m reading (Read-a-thon edition)

The Bout of Books read-a-thon was the week of May 8th and I went crazy with the reading during it. All that bookish love was highly enjoyable since I hadn’t indulged in a week long reading binge in a while. What did I read? you ask. WELL, LET ME TELL YOU! I finished a reread of […]

What I’m (re)reading

I’m a BIG rereader. I LOVE jumping back into series I’ve enjoyed before and getting to experience the ups and downs all over again. So what sort of books beg me to come back and dive into them again? Well, let me tell you… I finished a reread of Stacy Gail‘s House of Payne series […]

What I’m reading (2nd Edition)

It’s another addition of What I’m Reading. Because, you know, I read a lot and sharing book recs is FUN! First off, for paranormal romance fans, I HIGHLY recommend Ann Aguirre’s Ars Numina series. Book 1, The Leopard King is ammmmazing. Two shapeshifters with plenty of baggage figuring things out on the cusp of peace […]
