March Wrap-Up

March was an odd month for me. I don't feel like I read that much but when I look at my journal my reading seems about average. Maybe because I read a series and it felt like one book? I don't know. I do know this month had some ups and downs:

1. Power Play by Deirdre Martin (my last hockey book *sniff*) 4 stars
2. Glass Houses by Rachel Caine (NAC) 4 stars
3. The Dead Girls' Dance by Rachel Caine (VRC) 4 stars
4. Midnight Alley by Rachel Caine 4 stars
5. Feast of Fools by Rachel Caine 4 stars
6. Lord of Misrule by Rachel Caine 3 stars
7. Carpe Corpus by Rachel Caine 4 stars
8. Fade Out by Rachel Caine 5 stars
9. Can't Stand the Heat by Louisa Edwards (NAC) 4 1/2 stars
10. Something About You by Julie James (CRC) 4 stars
11. To Sin With A Scoundrel by Cara Elliot 3 1/2 stars
12. Loves Me, Loves Me Knot by Heidi Betts (NAC) 2 stars
13. Fragile by Shiloh Walker 3 stars
14. Broken by Shiloh Walker 3 stars
15. Double Play by Jill Shalvis 4 stars
16. Under the Magnolia by Moira Rogers 4 stars
17. One Reckless Summer by Toni Blake 3 1/2 stars
18. Sweet Talk by Susan Mallory 2 stars
19. Countess of Scandal by Laurel McKee 3 1/2 stars
20. Paradise Rules by Beth Kerry (ERC) 4 stars
21. Faith & Fidelity by Tere Michaels 4 1/2 stars (M/M)
22. Get A Clue by Jill Shalvis - DNF

I was blown away by Rachel Caine's Morganville Vampire books and am anxiously awaiting the next installment, Kiss of Death, coming out May 4. (I'm going to do a series review, I swear...I just don't know where the time goes to finish it!!)

Faith & Fidelity was a surprise for me -I loved it!

I really enjoyed Can't Stand the Heat and am waiting for the sequel, On the Steamy Side, to arrive in my mailbox any day now.

I was really looking forward to reading Fragile and Broken by Shiloh Walker but they fell a bit flat for me; I was a little disappointed.

I really enjoyed Jill Shalvis' baseball books, so while browsing my local bookstore I picked up Get A Clue. Little did I know that title was aimed at the heroine. I couldn't finish it.

So, that was my March! How was yours?


  1. So, so glad you liked 'Morganville Vampires'! Not only do we get a new book in May, but we get 'Ghost Town' on November 2nd. YAY!
    Now you have to try her 'Weather Warden' series - you will not be disappointed!

    I just bought 'Faith & Fidelity', and I'm really looking forward to it.

    And I hope you like 'On the Steamy Side' - it's really, really good.

    I just read Jill Shalvis's baseball series - I could not remember where I heard about it from, but it must have been you! I LOVED it, absolutely ate it up! So, thanks for that.

    Fingers crossed you get 'Silver Borne' and 'Changeless' in the mail soon - they're worth the wait ;)

  2. Patti,

    I agree with Danielle, the Morganville Vampires series is great. I'm glad you enjoyed it. The Weather Warden series is just as good - but in a different way - has a totally different feel than Vamps.

    Have a great evening.


  3. You got a lot read! Bummer about the Shalvis... I am NOT a fan of that sort of heroine.

  4. Danielle - got the first 3 WW books so I'll start those soon. Glad to hear you liked the baseball books - As much as I don't like sports I seem to like books with a sports hero.

    Michelle - loved the Morganville Vamps, am really looking forward to starting WW.

    Chris - I was surprised when I saw my list; I really don't feel like I spent a lot of time reading...and no, I don't like that type of heroine either.

  5. Glad to see I'm not the only one who reads like books might go out of style LOL!

  6. This was an interesting post. I enjoyed it and will be back


  7. Kris: LOL, I really am hopelessly addicted!

    HAWK: Thanks, I enjoy stopping by your place too!

  8. My plan is to read Slow Heat next..I hear the best things about her books!

  9. Great list! That's a lot of books!
    I've had Cant' Stand the Heat on the TBR for ages. I'm so glad to see you enjoyed it!! I will bump it up. Especially knowing the second book is out already!!!
