Nora Roberts Reading Challenge Update

I've read six books towards this challenge this year; three new books (Celebrity in Death, The Witness, and The Last Boyfriend), and three old books (The Art of Deception, Impulse, and Temptation).

I just recently finished Impulse and Temptation in a 2-in-1 book called Windfall.

Windfall: Impulse\TemptationWindfall: Impulse\Temptation by Nora Roberts
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Impulse had the feel of a Harlequin romance novel.  It should be titled something like The Greek Billionaire's Summer Fling. I don't know, it just felt like that kind of story.  I liked Rebecca and Stephen but at a few different points I wanted to hit Rebecca.  I felt like if she was so smart she should have been able to put a few more things together and realize that Stephen was more than what she believed him to be, but *shrug* such is the case with romances.

I liked Temptation a little bit more.  Eden and Chase were really great.  These two felt more like the Nora Robert's characters that I love.  They fight each other and themselves before finally admitting they care for each other. I prefer a battle to the female running away. I really like that Eden goes full steam ahead in her new life and embraces the challenges of working/running a summer camp.

Blind Date with a Book

Last year I put together a book display called Blind Date with a Book.  I found the idea through another librarian's post and thought it was great.  Last year I wrapped 19 books and 15 books were checked out.  We asked that people reviewed the book but unfortunately only two people returned reviews.
Last year's books included:

Went to the 2013 NJLA Adult Services Forum...left with a book list.

Yesterday I attended the NJLA Adult Services Forum (don't worry you don't need to know what it is for this post) and while there attended one panel and spoke on another and walked away with a list of some new books to read.  Since I'm really behind in writing reviews I decided to just share these new books so I at least had a post for today!
