I didn’t get to read as much as I would have liked, but still discovered some keepers.
35) A Perfect Storm, Lori Foster
I love, love, love Lori Foster’s books (am re-reading her MMA books at the moment with a big grin on my face), great dialogue and fabulous characters
36) The Capture of the Earl of Glencrae, Stephanie Laurens
fantastic conclusion to the mini-series
37) Seraphina, Rachel Hartman (proof)
interesting fantasy with great worldbuilding
38) The Witness, Nora Roberts
this is Nora’s 200th book! and it is fantastic, I sat down to read a couple of chapters and hours later I looked up and was nearly done
39) Timeless, Gail Carriger
love Alexia and her adventures, this time around she’s causing havoc outside of London
40) The Girl in the Clockwork Collar, Kady Cross (proof)
so excited when I got my proof copy, great second book in an amazing series, even if the bad guy was a little predictable
41) Crystal Gardens, Amanda Quick
fun read by a great author, I’m looking forward to the next book in the series
42) The Last Boyfriend, Nora Roberts
not quite as strong as The Witness, but a thoroughly enjoying read, looking forward to book 3
I hope you discovered some keepers!

Love the Gail Carriger books! Victorian London, a strong willed female lead, hot werewolves and sharp (no pun intended), flamboyant vampires.
Lol, exactly! I am curious to see how her teen series will develop and I definitely want to read about her daughter;).
Wow, great list of books..I’ve been slow with my reading this month..Been swamped with edits.
Lol, much more important;).
As soon as these edits are done I’m diving into night reading again..
What’s this Clockwork Collar book about Tina Arena? It’s possibly the only one I haven’t heard of. Ohh and have you read The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making? It’s Amazing!!! Oh and the new Philppa Gregory teenbook, really disappointing, don’t bothe and read Grave Mercy by Robin Lafevers instead. (might be Le Fevers, can’t remember.).
Oh, it fantastic. It’s the sequel to the Girl in the Steel Corset, a fabulous paranormal teen steampunk romp. I totally recommend both books. The first is out already, the second comes out in July I think.
I started Fairyland, but got side tracked. Good to know about Philippa Gregory, I was going to try that. I’ll check out Grave Mercy, thanks, hon.
The Gregory is OK, but not up to her adult standards but I think that it’s because she’s not writing around a particular person. It reads like a teen Cadfael. Once the series gets going, it should get better, but still… Ordered the Steel Corset book, the first one comes out over here in June. Have you got the Tony Di-whatsit Wondla books? The second one has just come out, I’m waiting for my copy to come, but I’m very excited. We’ve got Cassandra Clare coming in for a signing on Sunday, but annoyed that I’m not working. Must remember to bring in all my books.
Has the Fifty Shades book erupted where you are? My god, it’s incredible the fuss.
