Summer reading update #2

For #COYER this week (July 23-30) I'm reading only physical books, which was a little hard only because I was finishing up two ebooks. but i have plenty of hardcover to read! I'll let you know what I read in a few weeks.

Another month of reading!  

Here are the ones I am reading:




The Killing Curse 
by H.B. Moore








It Started With Goodbye 
by Christina June










Don't Kiss the Messenger 
by Katie Ray










Thick as Thieves 
by Megan Whalen Turner













Here are a couple I enjoyed the past couple of weeks:


My Lady Jane
Cynthia hand, Brodi Ashton, Jodi Meadows

The comical, fantastical, romantical, (not) entirely true story of Lady Jane Grey. In My Lady Jane, coauthors Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows have created a one-of-a-kind fantasy in the tradition of The Princess Bride, featuring a reluctant king, an even more reluctant queen, a noble steed, and only a passing resemblance to actual history—because sometimes history needs a little help.

At sixteen, Lady Jane Grey is about to be married off to a stranger and caught up in a conspiracy to rob her cousin, King Edward, of his throne. But those trifling problems aren’t for Jane to worry about. Jane is about to become the Queen of England.


  Clever. Funny. Smart. Hilarious at times. Intriguing all the time. The story of Lady Jane Grey, the Nine Day Queen, is told from the three different, rich viewpoints, thanks to three great writers.

A Season in London

POOR RELATIONS by Elizabeth Johns


""This is my cousin, Emma Standrich," said Jane Wetherby said for the hundredth time that evening."


Emma feels she needs to become a governess to save her family. Colonel Shelton is smitten with her and offers his hand in marriage and the access to his money to help her save her family

 
EDWARD & EMILY by Heather B. Moore

""This is my cousin, Emma Standrich," said Jane Wetherby said for the hundredth time that evening."


Emma feels she needs to become a governess to save her family. Colonel Shelton is smitten with her and offers his hand in marriage and the access to his money to help her save her family

 
A SPORTING SEASON by Rebecca Connolly


"A season in London."
 
What a fun read! Daphne is determined to ruin her season in London before anyone else does and Jaime is determined to have a front row seat. Their dialogue is snappy and intelligent and their chemistry sweet.
