April’s reading

I have no perspective on my reading patterns any longer.  I feel somewhat disconnected from the online reading community right now for a variety of reasons, and I’m not finding a lot of recommendations that intrigue me.  Eh.

1.  The Language of Bees by Laurie King.  Sherlock Holmes and Mary Russell mystery.  The pacing was quite slow.  Perhaps not the best place to start this series.

2.  The Stonecutter by Camilla Lackberg.  Swedish-set mystery.  Liked it, would look for other books in this series.

Those two mentioned here.

3.  Question Mark by S.E. Culpepper.   Contemporary m/m romance.  DNF.  The narrator was irritating and TSTL:  whine whine whine.  No redemptive qualities, just a series of poor choices and self-sabotage.

4.  Devil’s Punch by Ann Aguirre.  Urban fantasy.  Another DNF, as explained here with spoilers.

5.  Pole Star by Josephine Myles.  Contemporary m/m novella.  LibraryThing tells me I read this and that it was short, hot fluff, but I don’t really remember it.

6.  Irregulars by Nicole Kimberling, et al.  Urban fantasy m/m anthology.  Loved this book.

7.  Romantically Challenged by Beth Orsoff.  Pedestrian chick lit, mentioned here.

8.  The Witness by Nora Roberts.  Romantic suspense.  Liked it although it felt a little light on the suspense, Rosario’s review has me thinking that I should re-read with different expectations of the suspense.  Also about doing a survey of NR’s use of setting.

9.  Gravitational Attraction by Angel Martinez.  SFF m/m.  Liked the SFF aspect although the romance lacked good development IMO and was all tell rather than show.

10.  Handle With Care by Josephine Myles.  Contemporary m/m.

11. For Ever and Ever by Mary Burchell.  Very dated category, doctor/nurse romance.

12.  The Young Doctor by Sheila Douglas.  Another dated category, this one slightly different with a doctor heroine.

The last two mentioned here.
