Weekly Reading Update 4/17 - 4/21!

Another week, another obsessive amount of reading! Well, okay, maybe not obsessive, but definitely a fair amount. But hey, I just consider this practice for ALA’s Readathon on Saturday, May 21st. Let me know if you’re planning to participate! I definitely am.

As always, click the link to get more info on the book!

Continuing from last week’s Mediator series binge, I read the new novella The Proposal by Meg Cabot. I wanted to jump right into the last book in the series, Remembrance - but I couldn’t do it. I need to hold off a little bit longer. Spread out the joy, as it were. The Proposal was very cute, and really hit the spot. I wasn’t sure how Meg Cabot would be able to pack a full Mediator story into a novella - considering Suze’s ability to get things blown out of proportion, but she manages. And it was so wonderful to see Suze and Jesse a little older. I really can’t wait for Remembrance.

Continuing my obsessive nostalgia kick, I started rereading the Undead series by MaryJanice Davidson - Undead and Unwed (1), Undead and Unemployed (2), Undead and Unappreciated (3), Undead and Unreturnable (4), and Dead and Loving It (4.5). I really do love this series, it’s quirky and funny. And they are definitely fast reads, as evidenced by my reading so many of them so quickly. I’m currently reading number 5, Undead and Unpopular, but I think I might take a break after this one, just so they don’t start running together.

Next up was Midnight Heat by Cat Johnson, book three in the Midnight Cowboys series. I reviewed this one for Romance Reviews Today, so be sure to check out that website for my review, and for some other awesome content. This was a really good read. I think I liked it better than the previous books in the series. And I’m still holding out hope that Colton will get his own book, even though there’s no mention of it yet.

Last, but certainly not least (or maybe yes least) was Hot Pterodactyl Boyfriend by Alan Cumyn. This was a whole rollercoaster of weird. You may be asking what the author means by a pterodactyl boyfriend - just that. A guy that is a pterodactyl. And he becomes (sort of) her boyfriend. If you like weird stuff, and who doesn’t now and again, definitely check this one out. It’s… certainly something.

Happy Reading
