Today I’m switching gears and I’m sharing my post over at the 7 Scribes on my page today. I know, totally lazy!
After I finish a manuscript and send it on its merry way, I go on a reading binge. After finishing Mystic Storm, I’ve become a story glutton. If you’re my friend on Goodreads, it looks like I’ve gone crazy.
And I guess I have! I won’t bore you with all the books I’ve recently completed but I will share a few that really grabbed a hold of me and wouldn’t let me go until I hit the end.
1. The False Prince by Jennifer A. Nielsen – this book was a Kindle daily deal. I tried a sample and within about 8 seconds I was buying it. I am not sure what age group this is really aimed for (Scholastic published it) but it has that same wide audience appeal that Harry Potter had. This book is fabulous and it’s awesome that the sequel is coming out today (March 1st). Yahoo! Seriously if you read any book on my list, read this one.
2. One Good Earl Deserves A Lover by Sarah MacLean – Here I forayed into the realm of historical romance. Omigosh, I love this author’s writing. Immediately after finishing this book I realized that this was book 2 so I bought (and read) – A Rogue by Any Other Name. Both books – Fun and fantastico! I plan on reading more of her books for sure.
Let me break here and say, notice none so far have been paranormal romance or urban fantasy. But I can’t stray too far from the genre I know and love which brings me to . . .
3. The Woodcutter by Kate Danley. Also purchased as a Kindle daily deal. Thank you Amazon because I may have never found this book. It’s really a fairy tale of sorts. Gritty, lyrical, and poignant. If you like Once Upon a Time or fairy tales in general, you’ll probably enjoy this book.
Okay, last one.
4. Lady Almina and the Real Downton Abbey – by the Countess Carnovan. This one’s for you Downtown fans. All about Highclere Castle and Lady Almina, the 5th Countess of Carnovan. For King Tut aficionados – her husband, the fifth earl, is the very same Carnovan who financed Howard Carter’s excavation of the boy king’s tomb. I read this on my Kindle and drank up every fascinating detail.
I could go on and on. But I won’t! Now it’s your turn.
So everyone, what good books have you read lately? Please share!!

Thanks for sharing your recommendations. I love hearing about books others have read and enjoyed. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to do too much personal reading lately (big bummer actually). But I hope to remedy that as soon as I turn in my next book. I like your idea of going on a reading binge after a deadline! Hope you’re having a great Saturday!
Thanks for stopping by Jill! I think my brain demands a mental break in between stories. And it’s a fun way to recharge the mental batteries. I hope everyone in your family is feeling better too. Stomach flu is so nasty (and we’ve had our share over the years so I feel your pain!).
I will be sure to share my list when I get to read more than a few minutes at a time…but spring/summer tends to be frenetic so it may be a while. Look’s like you’re enjoying a much-deserved break, however 🙂
Please do Tim! I’d love to know what you enjoy reading. 🙂
