Reading Update
Dark Designs (Half Lives, Book 1) by Luisa Prieto. ebook. Excellent m/m dark fantasy romance about a Pulitzer-winning journalist haunted by a horrifying event he can’t quite remember and a graphic novel artist who has been drawing strips that he believed were fantastical, but which may be echoes from a previous life. Deft and complex, this book drew me in slowly until I realized I couldn’t put it down. Do be aware that things are not at all resolved by the end of this book. *commences waiting impatiently for Book 2*
The Rest Is Illusion by Eric Arvin. ebook. Wow. I don’t even know where to start. This excellent novel is about a group of college students who are all, without necessarily knowing it, poised at the brink of transformation. It’s thoughtful, spiritual, ultimately hopeful, and worth savoring; I’m very glad to have read it.
The Mark of an Alpha (Pack Discipline, Book 1) by Kim Dare. ebook. Very intriguing paranormal m/m romance that takes the standard alpha werewolf trait of dominance and mixes it up with bondage and submission. Plus it was nice not to read a fated mates story for a change. I’m definitely reading more in this series as they are available.
Turquoise and Leather (Collared, Book 1) by Kim Dare. ebook. Very good kinky m/m romance about a dominant who’s not sure he wants to take on a very chattery untrained submissive.
Lights and Sirens by Stephani Hecht. ebook. Very good m/m romance about a nurse who has a crush on a straight paramedic, but is pretty sure he doesn’t want to take that path to heartache.
Blood on the Ice by A.M. Riley. ebook short. Very good short paranormal m/m romance about a hockey player who gets bitten by a vampire.
Bad Angels: Falling by Belinda McBride. ebook. Ok m/m fantasy m/m romance about a fallen angel and the member of the Fae who teaches him what he needs to know to live in the world.
Ghost of a Chance by Jude Mason. ebook short. Ok short paranormal m/m romance about a guy who discovers that the house he’s just purchased has a ghost… a very amorous ghost, tied to a mystery. Yup, that’s Underwear Guy!
Melting Ice and Melting Ice 2 by D.J. Manly. ebooks. So-so unrelated m/m romantic suspenses about deeply closeted law enforcement agents who “thaw” under the attention of the wrong guys. By the end of each book, I wanted to slap characters.

  1. I clocked the time I spent on your post: 54 minutes. And then I even skipped a few links. ;D
    I got all teary eyed looking at the kitty pics. Maybe hubby and I need to have this talk…
    The ebook pricing links were interesting. I don’t think there’s one single ebook buyer that’ll pay $ 27.99 for an ebook.

  2. I didn’t see your post, as I thought it was Bloglines messing up again. Mayhem looks like she know how to get around your body. Do you always carry your camera? Will you mail Mayhem to me since she’s already in the box?

  3. Thanks for the shout out.

    Yay Patrick Stuart and that porn chart is interesting. Those pervs in Illinois. *shakes head*

    I will NOT show my daughter the math chart because she’ll use it to lobby for not taking math next year. LOL

    I haven’t read many of those. Have the AM Riley one and am TRYING to buy Stephani’s but still no luck this morning. Sigh. Well, better get off to work.

  4. OK, that Franco is just unreal. Heh, there’s a picture there that make me think of what Malcolm and Gandalf would have looked like had they been kittens at the same time! (Oh man…the destruction…)

    Yay for Captain Picard!!

  5. I LOVE Patrick Stewart with his ohsosexy accent and proper posture and ohmygod the way he goes all Shakespeare and shit. Sigh. Don’t you just wanna like his shiny, bald head? Bet he’s vanilla bean.

  6. That otter thing is… just… so… icky. But the ‘oh noes’ castle was adorable. How twisted is that? And *pats* there there, May–I understands the allure of the cushy thingy that smells of other cats and a couple of houseapes.

  7. Hey honey! Wow you always seem to amaze me with all the linkage you provide us with!! Thanks hon!
    Some of them were quiet amusing!!!! LMBO!!!

    Mayhem.. are you trying out for the position of Basement Cat in the Box? You look adorable honey!

    Yayay its Friday!!!!!!

  8. My husband mentioned earlier this week that there was a cheaper eReader available at Borders. I’m of mixed opinions about the Aluratek. It’s nice that it has more formats available (than the Kobo, which is what I’ve been looking at), but it has horrible battery life and fairly low internal memory. I don’t know if their version of an LCD screen would be more irritating than the eInk screen or a normal LCD.

  9. Loved the math chart. It’s so true!

    I think you should create a new book review rating system going from
    “Couldn’t put it down” to “Wanted to slap characters.”

  10. I noticed that second post on Wednesday – I just thought I was really late to the reading. I would also like to crawl into that little box with the kitty and sleep.

  11. I would have to say Tamyra and Sirius surely must rate too in the cute kitten-ness! 🙂

    Hmm tweeting kittens..

  12. Wait, not only are there man-eating otters but there are man-eating weasels too!

    I don’t care if coffee doesn’t make me more alert. No one is taking my coffee away. 🙂

    I knew there was a lot of p0rn on the internet but I had no idea it was that much.

    LOL! Loved the Twilight video!

  13. I’m a ‘ooh, shiny!!’ type of gal, too.

    Jean Luc Picard was knighted? How did I miss that?!? Yes, yes, I used to be a bit (…okay, more than a bit) of a Trekkie. Jean Luc is the Man! *fan girl squee* I followed the link and I loved that episode of Extras with Patrick Stewart. Absolutely frickin’ hilarious. Though I will say the episode with Daniel Radcliffe tops it. If you have’t seen it, you really have to. And now I’m in the mood to watch it again (I have the 1st season on DVD – it’s that good).

  14. I haven’t made it through the links yet, but I’m coming back tomorrow 🙂

    I can’t wait to read Luisa book – it sound so good (m/m + dark fantasy = *happy dance*). And oh I like the sound of Kim Dare’s books. I’ve been looking for some m/m BDSM. OK, that’s not right…I’m always *grin* looking for m/m BDSM.’

    And Domino’s are selling gluten-free pizza here? Excellent!

    May – you looked like you’re plotting something 🙂

    Oh, and I would normally be the shiny new book, but saying that I’m finally reading Shalador’s Lady even though I picked up Magic Bleeds from the library. That’s next though 🙂

  15. I guess it depends on your school system, but I find that algebra and geometry are more useful than people tend to think. Says she who is attempting basic home improvement stuff. (On the new place.)
