Reading Update
Woke Up in a Strange Place by Eric Arvin. ebook. Very good fantasy m/m story about a man who wakes up in the afterlife, with no memory of his prior life, and, with the help of a cryptic guide, begins a journey to recover his memories and make his peace with the significant people from his life.
Blood Howl by Robin Saxon & Alex Kidwell. ebook. Very good paranormal m/m romance about a guy, formerly Special Forces, who now offers those skills for hire. When a job goes in an unexpected direction, he has no idea how much his world is about to change… If a few more questions had been answered by the end of the book, this could have been a five-star read. Maybe there will be a sequel?
Ex Equals by LA Witt. ebook. Very good m/m romance about a guy, formerly in the Navy, who has just started teaching math at a community college and discovers that his ex (still in the Navy) is in his evening class.
In Remembrance of Us by AJ Rose. ebook. Very good m/m romance about a guy suffering from amnesia after a mugging. He’s missing the last two years of his life… including he and his best friend becoming much, much closer. I got sniffly while reading this one. (Be aware that there’s cheating, which I realize is an automatic no for some readers.)
Boystown 3: Two Nick Nowak Novellas by Marshall Thornton. ebook. Two very good historical m/m mysteries about Chicago PI Nick Nowak. It’s 1982, and no one really understands why gay men are getting sick… 🙁
Bulletproof (A Matter of Time #3/#5) by Mary Calmes. ebook. Enjoyable roller coaster of a read that picks up three years after A Matter of Time. Sam’s been away from home in deep cover for months. Jory’s working a job he hates and trying to extricate himself from the complicated interpersonal situations he tangles himself into.
A Little Bite of Magic (Magic #1) by MJ O’Shea. ebook. Sweet paranormal m/m romance about a witch/chef who leaves his pretentious family behind in New Orleans to open a restaurant in San Francisco.
Happy Trails by Carol Lynne. ebook short. Good short m/m romance about a college student out hiking with his cop brother and his brother’s hot work partner. This read like a snippet from a longer book rather than a complete story, which I found frustrating.

  1. Play with Lego May and make your own Victorian House. That’s what I’d like to do. Unfortunately I don’t own a single Lego 🙁
    p.s. Hopefully that’s the last dumb clothes installment. My eyes can’t take any more.

  2. Man, those rubber bookshelves! Totally chic design. *grins*

    It seems like John Galliano is rather fond of designing Halloween costumes for men… My God, they sure are appropriate for horrifying people!

    And thank you for that Facebook tracking link, Chris. Funny how we never really seem to know everything about the web.

  3. Well I’m extremely happy to know I’m safe from zombies here in the Midwest. But then it’s not the most exciting for the living, so I’m sure it wouldn’t appeal to the dead either.

    ThinkGeek has the greatest stuff and I LOVE the DW watch! They actually have a great variety of DW stuff. So sad that this weekend is the season finale which I’ll definitely be watching while holding my sonic screwdriver.

    Very excited for the Amazon Fire but am definitely waiting for real people’s feedback. Will be saving up for it though and hoping the reviews are ultimately good.

    Have a great weekend Chris and thanks for the great links again this week!

  4. Well Mayhem… maybe knowing your mom was mentioned last night in Spanish class might perk your interest… we were talking about “literatura Queer”, and the others were saying how they thought mostly it appealed to homosexual men, and I said, well, actually…

  5. WANT the Princess Bride Monopoly. Someone has to make that. And several of the other LOLs had me literally LOLing so hard I was crying. 😀

  6. Ohhh, linkity! I sure love me some Lego…and Princess Bride Monopoly has me drooling 🙂

    And I got all excited about LA Witt’s contest, but for some annoying reason Blogger won’t let me post a comment! Am sure it has something to do with cookies…GRRR! Oh well 🙂

    Ohhh, lots of lovely reads!

    May – am sure you could find something to keep you occupied. Where is the big kitty?

  7. Whoa, I like that method of peeling garlic. Course now I mostly buy the jars of chopped garlic.

    I like Pinterest. It gives me an online place to collect all of the photos I like.

    I like that wee camera tripod.

    Are there really guys out there who buy these clothes or do they make them purely for the “Oh my God!” effect?

    Hey I don’t need a special shirt to look like I spilled coffee on myself. 😉

    Wow is all I can say about the albino hummingbird.
