Whatcha Reading? June 2017 Edition

Illustration of magic opened book covered with grass trees and waterfall surround by ocean. Fantasy world, imaginary view. Book, tree of life concept. Original beautiful screen saverIt’s Whatcha Reading time! This is where we talk about the books we’ve read in the past month, whether they’re good, bad, or just meh. It’s an expensive post and pretty damaging to the ol’ book budget, but it’s oh so much fun.

Besides, who doesn’t love talking about books?

Redheadedgirl: You literally caught me between books. I just finished Goodnight From London ( A | BN | K | G | iB ).

I’m making my way through A History of the Swedish People (all that stuff that happened between Vikings and IKEA). ( A | BN )

And I’m about to start Offstage and On by Melissa Hayden, upon recommendations from our lovely commentariat.

(NB: Offstage and On is mostly out of print.)

Carrie: I am reading The Guns Above by Robyn Bennis. It’s a steampunk that so far avoids cliche – I just started it but am already loving it.

Elyse: I just finished The Girl Who Knew Too Much by Amanda Quick ( A | BN | K | iB ). It’s a romantic mystery set in 1930’s Hollywood and the heroine is a gossip reporter. It’s really low on violence and gore so it would be a good fit for readers who want romantic suspense without the creepy-factor.

Amanda: I just finished some meh books. But I have Anna Kendrick’s Scrappy Little Nobody ( A | BN | K | G | iB ) on audio from my library.

To actually read, I’m thinking an erotic contemporary. My choices are the new Tessa Bailey – Disorderly Conduct ( A | BN | K | G | iB ). Yay! Or some books I took a chance on getting for my Kindle – Mister Romance by Leisa Rayven and SOLD by Gisele St. Claire ( A ).

Sarah: I am about to finish And It Came to Pass by Laura Stone ( A | BN | K | iB ), whom I met at RT. She told me about her podcast about being a former Mormon, Oh My Heck, and I followed a link to this book. It’s a contemporary about two young Mormon men on their mission in Barcelona, and their struggle to reconcile their faith, which is openly and fiercely anti LGBTQIA+ and their growing attraction to and love for one another.
