What are you currently reading?

I don’t usually listen to audio books unless I’m focused on something like cleaning the house. Sometimes the noise in my head drowns out the narration and listening gets frustrating. I started listening to The Princess Diarist by Carrie Fisher and love it. I did get a little upset and teary that she herself was reading, but got past that. She’s on my list of “read more of” since I read Postcards from the Edge a long time ago, but…the road to hell and all. Well, the house is going to be really clean! 😀


What did you recently finish reading? 

So I do this thing starting around Christmas, where I hunt back in my Kindle for some comfort re-reads. Sue Brockmann’s “Troubleshooters” series and Andrea Speed’s “Infected” series are Christmas to New Year’s past re-reads.

This year I went with a re-read (the 5th, 6th?) of Josh Lanyon’s Adrien English series. Yes, that’s Adrien with an E.


Good Reads description:

“One sunny morning Los Angeles bookseller and aspiring mystery author Adrien English opens his front door to murder. His old high school buddy (and employee) has been found stabbed to death in a back alley following a loud and very public argument with Adrien the previous evening.

Naturally the cops want to ask Adrien a few questions; they are none too impressed with his answers, and when a few hours later someone breaks into Adrien’s shop and ransacks it, the law is inclined to think Adrien is trying to divert suspicion from himself.
Adrien knows better. Adrien knows he is next on the killer’s list.”

In order:

  1. Fatal Shadows
  2. A Dangerous Thing
  3. Death of A Pirate King
  4. The Dark Tide

The other seasonal re-read is KJ Charles Magpie Lord series. Why I find murder both mundane and paranormal a “comfort” I have no idea, but it’s Romance and at least I know there will be a happy ending, lol.


Good Reads:

“A lord in danger. A magician in turmoil. A snowball in hell.

Exiled to China for twenty years, Lucien Vaudrey never planned to return to England. But with the mysterious deaths of his father and brother, it seems the new Lord Crane has inherited an earldom. He’s also inherited his family’s enemies. He needs magical assistance, fast. He doesn’t expect it to turn up angry.

Magician Stephen Day has good reason to hate Crane’s family. Unfortunately, it’s his job to deal with supernatural threats. Besides, the earl is unlike any aristocrat he’s ever met, with the tattoos, the attitude… and the way Crane seems determined to get him into bed. That’s definitely unusual.

Soon Stephen is falling hard for the worst possible man, at the worst possible time. But Crane’s dangerous appeal isn’t the only thing rendering Stephen powerless. Evil pervades the house, a web of plots is closing round Crane, and if Stephen can’t find a way through it—they’re both going to die.”

  1. A Charm of Magpies
  2. A Case of Possession
  3. Flight of Magpies

What do you think you’ll read next?

These are review books coming up in January, and I’ve started two of them…



Very good and compelling, excellent writing for both pulling me right in…:D
