Reading Update
Moving in Rhythm by Dev Bentham. ebook arc. Very good m/m romance about a closeted online math instructor whose crippling shyness and social anxiety have him living a hermetic life. When his brother is deployed to Iraq, he agrees to take care of his pregnant sister-in-law during the deployment, and finds himself being forced, protesting, out of his shell… not always smoothly. This was a wonderful combination of sweet and serious.
Social Skills by S Alva. free online. Good m/m romance about a college freshman who plays the violin and has crippling social anxiety. He’s nearly incapacitated by anxiety when he realizes that the closeted football player he’s tutoring is gay and likes him.
Ghosts & Flames by Kaje Harper. ebook. Good holiday paranormal m/m romance a guy with a ghost problem who runs into a guy with a vampire problem. While the final 2/3 of the story was very involving, the first third simply had too much info-dumping – I kept wondering if this was the second book in a series.
Question Mark (Liaisons #2) by SE Culpepper. ebook. Good but uneven m/m romance about Mark from the previous book, who finally realizes that he needs to get over his ex and decides that a trip to Bora Bora is just what he needs. While I was rooting for Mark and his guy, parts of their interactions just didn’t make sense.
Stroke! by MJ O’Shea. ebook short. Good short m/m romance about a guy on his college crew team who’s struggling to keep a freshman from taking his varsity spot. The big mystery was pretty obvious from the beginning.
Maple Leaf Red: Sugaring Off! by Vic Winter. ebook short. Cute short paranormal m/m romance about a guy living alone on a remote Canadian sugar bush who helps an injured wolf…
And Then I Met Him by L Arthur. free online. Pretty good m/m romance about a straight college student who works at a tutoring center and becomes strangely fascinated by a defensive and troubled young man.
Sorry Now? (Paul Turner #1) by Mark Richard Zubro. Good gay mystery about a Chicago police detective trying to figure out who killed the daughter of a homophobic minister and politician.
Political Poison (Paul Turner #2) by Mark Richard Zubro. Pretty good gay mystery in Chicago police detective Paul Turner tries to figure out who killed a professor/alderman. The background stuff that doesn’t change much between books was copied and pasted from the first book. Grrr. Strangely not feeling the urge to check more of this series out from the library… And seriously – why would you try mouth-to-mouth on someone who was poisoned?!
Promise in a Kiss by Piper Vaughn. ebook short. Ok short m/m romance about two guys who made a promise to each other when they were kids, then lost touch. While this was sweet, it felt more like a tease than an actual story.
In the Penalty Box (Seattle Marauders #2) by Riley Shane. ebook. Ok m/m romance about a closeted hockey player and the freelance writer who used to have a crush on him. Alas, this did not stand up well against the fabulous (and free) m/m hockey player romance, Heart in Hand.
In the Name of the Law by Sue Holston. ebook short. Ok short m/m romance about a cop who’s been in love with his straight partner for years.
Schooled in Murder (Tom & Scott #12) by Mark Richard Zubro. Ok mystery in which Tom stumbles a dead body or two at school and is under suspicion for murder, with unsuspected enemies coming out of the woodwork. The whole thing with the blurb for this and the previous book saying that Scott is a former professional baseball player is beyond weird. Quote from the book itself: “Scott plays professional baseball.” That seems pretty clear to me at least!

  1. I’ve been making chickpea “tuna salad” for years. Yum. That chickpea casserole sounds great, too. And the freezer burritos! Since I’ve gone back to work, we’ve been relying a lot on Amy’s burritos for lunch (me at work, Larry at home). No reason I shouldn’t make my own! Hmmm. I have a yummy sweet potato and black bean burrito recipe…

  2. Oooh! Moment of excitement.. I’ve been a browsed at Barter Books, Alnwick, which is on the 20 top book shops link 🙂

    Though I must say – I don’t do sewing…need to knit a cover for the Kindle… soon, very very soon…

    Chaos – you storing sleep for a big occasion??

  3. Oh, those brownie roll-ups look yummy. Used to love swiss cake rolls as a kid. They rocked.

    Kitteh’s already gotten pushy of late when I’m trying to work on the laptop. Repeatedly head-buts my arm (which makes it challenging to type). I wouldn’t be surprised if she progressed to smacking me in the eye to get attention.

  4. Those bookstores are absolutely stunning! I’d LOVE to live there they’re that gorgeous. Maybe if more bookstores were that appealing people would be visiting them more often.

    Thanks too for the great free read heads-up. I just bookmarked it and will spend the afternoon reading it.

    Have a great weekend, Chris! And tell May and Chaos to stay away from anything green. LOL.

  5. I like the pill bottle emergency kit. Especially the little straws filled with whatever.

    I love the video about the lioness.

    America would be a much better place if Americans lived by those words.

    There have never been any penguins on my flights either.

    Oh oh, I like the pi pie.

    I think that’s what Katie does when I nap.

    Yay a new Simon’s Cat. The gravity game is popular at my house.
