November’s reading

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.  ❤

  1. I’ve never heard of Petit Morts series. What is it, where do I get it? How did you hear about it? Looks to be Jordan Castillo Price setting up her own epub (WHY do authors do this?! WHY?!). Is that right?

  2. It’s a very loosely related series of short stories, the only thing each story has in common is the appearance of a mysterious, magical chocolatier named Chance. Heard of it via Lanyon’s website or LJ. So far all have been by JCP or Lanyon, but for the one Kennedy installment. I bought them at Amazon, not sure what other distribution the pub/press has.
