So, yeah, I was supposed to write this weekend. And, I have… some. Okay, so not as much as I had planned, and I had to work all day Saturday… And today I read two AMAZING books. Ummm…. I’m a bit of an addict.
First was Dark Enchantment by Anya Bast. I really, really love the worldbuilding Anya does. Her Elemental Witches series (Witch Fire, Witch Blood, Witch Heart, Witch Fury) is a series I go back and read every so often, allowing myself to be immersed in a world full of magick and demons. The Dark Magick world is based in fae magicks and the series (Wicked Enchantment, Cruel Enchantment, Dark Enchantment) is simply awesome. This is the third in the series (pre-ordered) and I ate it up. I mean, just clicked the next page button from beginning to end and didn’t even get back up to get coffee (which I adore and drink by the bucketful, if that tells you anything). The world is so real, and story so moving (yeah, yeah, so I cried a little) and I can’t say enough good things about it. Try it, you’ll like it.
Switching gears, I also read Kristan Higgins My One and Only. Kristan is one of the only authors I love who writes in first person, and there is good reason for that. She writes zany, screwed up heroines who literally speak to you as a reader. This one was no exception to that rule and holy testicle Tuesday, I cried at multiple places here. This is story of love- lost, found, lost, found (no, really)- along with family angst and wackiness thrown in for fun. You know how I hate to give a plot synopsis (that would be why I include the links, people!), but this was fabulous.
So, yeah, I spent almost an entire day with my Kindle. Sue me. It was worth it. Two *very* different books- one paranormal with great, hot, sex, one contemporary without the smexy parts explained in detail- but they were both- as I believe I said before- AMAZING. So, it may have been a day with my Kindle, but it was a perfect day.
