November’s reading was a little light, but pretty good.
1. Petit Morts: One Less Stiff at the Funeral by Sean Kennedy. M/m romance, novella. I remember being entertained and satisfied by the length and quality. Plot-wise, it’s a little vague for me, since I read a month ago now. The narrator is a funeral director and his hero is the relative of a customer/client.
2. Petit Morts: Sort of Stranger Than Fiction by Josh Lanyon. M/m romance, novella. Am embarrassed to admit that I do not remember this novella at all.
3. Petit Morts: Critic’s Choice by Josh Lanyon. M/m romance, novella. Loved this one. It’s a reunion story, with a horror film historian, a horror director and a screen legend known for his B horror movies. Very sweet.
4. Indulgence in Death by J.D. Robb. Futuristic romantic suspense. There’s always something to enjoy about an Eve Dallas book. In this one, I enjoyed the opening chapters and the set up. The Evil Villain(s) felt a little repetitive, though.
5. Happy Ever After by Nora Roberts. Contemporary romance. This may be the first NR book I’ve ever given a DNF. The writing was fine, but I was so bored by the wedding details; it was more a narrative about the heroine’s friendship with the rest of the quartet and their business than a romance novel, at least for the 100 or so pages I read. Mailed it to , who enjoyed it.
6. Collision Course by K.A. Mitchell. Re-read. Because my copy is newly autographed by Ms. Mitchell herself 🙂 Whenever I read this book, it’s my favorite. Then I read No Souvenirs and change my mind 😛
7. Pricks & Pragmatism by J.L. Merrow. M/m romance. Recommended by . Really enjoyed this story. The story is not quite a rent boy, but is transient. Ends up living with a frumpy dork (which I say with the utmost affection for frumpy dorks) and falling in love with him as he is. A Cinderella story without the transformation.
8. His for the Holidays by Josh Lanyon, et al. Holiday anthology of m/m romance. Reviewed earlier here.
9. Core Training by Andrew Grey. M/m novella. Not badly written, but I’m not sure what the point was. No tension, no plot. Meh.
10. The Annotated Persuasion by Jane Austen. ❤
