Month in Review - April

The first semester of my work towards my second masters degree started this month.  This is week five and I'm please that I'm able to still get some pleasure reading in while doing a lot of intense reading for my two classes.

Lover Reborn (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #10)Lover Reborn by J.R. Ward
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

No enough Z for my liking but it was a great story. How long do I have to wait for the next book?

Keep a Little SecretKeep a Little Secret by Dorothy Garlock
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This was our April book Club pick.

No MercyNo Mercy by Sherrilyn Kenyon
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

WOW! While not a favorite, it was a good one, I've always thought the Peltier brothers sounded interesting, I hope we see more of them in the future.

Sherrilyn added a nice little twist to help set up future books. Can't wait to see where she takes this.

Retribution (Dark-Hunter, #20)Retribution by Sherrilyn Kenyon
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Another really good book, thought not a top favorite.

I like when we take a break from New Orleans to see some of the other Dark-Hunters around the states. I honestly didn't care for Abigail all that much. I liked Sundown and all the other characters in this book. I think we have been started down a path towards Nicks book. Any one else think so?

This was my first read from Net Galley. I still haven't written a review for it, still trying to figure out what I want to say about the book.

The Turn of the ScrewThe Turn of the Screw by Henry James
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I had to read this for school. It's the perfect book to apply all these literary theories too, but it left me really confused. It could be that I sped read it to finish it in less than a week.

The WitnessThe Witness by Nora Roberts
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This one is definitely a new favorite!
Really enjoyed the story and the characters. Only I wish there had been more time spent with Sunny!

Review of this book can be found over at Central New Jersey - Jane Austen Society of North America.

Audio Books: I finished listening to the Hunger Games Trilogy and really, really liked them all! I also listened to Stranded by Lori Foster. It was an okay story for a little novella that focused mostly on the characters pinning away for each other before finally combusting.
