It's Monday, What Are You Reading? (April 11, 2011)

It's Monday, What Are You Reading? is a meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.

It’s Monday!  What Are You Reading, is where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week.  It is a great way to network with other bloggers, see some wonderful blogs, and put new titles on your reading list.

I am still in my reading funk. After starting who knows how many books, I did manage to finish three books this week.
I read the humorous The Art of Seducing a Naked Werewolf by Molly Harper. I recommend it if you like humorous romances. This review will be posted on April 16.

Desperate Desires by Terri Wolfe is a novella. It is an erotic historical romance. This one was quite spicy but had its sweet moments too. I am a stop on her blog tour. She is supposed to have a guest post for me on April 13. I will be posting my review on May 11.

I also went back to my bookshelves and re-read Naked in Death by J. D. Robb. This is the first book in a series that I love and which has grown to 32 books and a bunch of novellas. I loved going back to revisit old friends. My review will be posted on April 14.

I also read two stories from Eileen Wilks' website. The first was a deleted scene from the book Night Season. In this scene Cullen Seaborne is meeting with a Catholic priest for a counseling session prior to his wedding to Cynna. He discussed his religious philosophy and convinces the priest that he is ready to marry Cynna. The second was a short story entitled "Cyncerely Yours" which is about the wedding of Cynna and Cullen. The wedding goes really well except for the ghost who wants forgiveness and the dragon who wants his gold dust back. Both stories were really entertaining glimpses into the World of the Lupi. This is a great series but the books are not published frequently enough. I recommend it highly. 

I am currently reading:
The Vampire Narcise by Colleen Gleason which I have on my Kindle from NetGalley. It is the third in her Regency vampires series and tells the story of Narcise who has been a prisoner of her brother the evil Cezar Moldavi. 

I am also reading The Perfect Play by Jaci Burton because I was in the mood for a sports romance and had this one sitting on my stack of TBR books. I loved the cover.

Next week:

I just don't know what I'll be reading next. I have tons of books that I should be reading but I need something to grab me.

What are your plans?

    My week:

  13. I just discovered today, while looking at books in a local store, that JD Robbs and Nora Roberts are one and the same! I haven't read any JD Robbs books but will consider them as you certainly seem to like them.
