Books read/listened to

I finished listening to 'The Vor Game' and 'The Warrior's Apprentice' on audio (re-reads).  I like Miles so much better as Naismith.

Now, I'm out of Miles audio, out of Bujold audio, for that matter.  What to do, what to do?

Read Jo Goodman's 'Never Love a Lawman'.  I really abhor the recent move towards 70k mini novels.  Well, this one ain't one of those at 434 pages.  Which should make me happy, if it weren't for the fact that those were the most boring 434 pages it has been my misfortune to read in a long time.  Zero chemistry between the characters, boring suspense plot.  Why did I finish, you ask.  Well, I don't know.  Maybe because so many others loved this book and gave it A grades, I kept looking to see what they were seeing.  Didn't find it.

Started Hunter's 'Provocative in Pearls', but bogged down by the rather unlikeable heroine.

Finished a re-read of Jo Beverley's 'Forbidden'.  It's not one I totally love like I do some early Baloghs and Putneys, but when it came up as a (rape victim) virgin hero recommendation on DA I decided a re-read was in order.  Enjoyed it again!

In other news, darn FB games are cutting seriously into my reading time.

I can't for the life of me figure out what I should read next.  I think I mentioned how 2010 books have sucked so far?

In additional news, Jo Bev posted a cover pic of a re-release of 'Tempting Fortune' in the UK.  What is it with UK covers that make you want to buy all the books just so you can burn them to destroy their ugliness?

You can find that abomination at

And on that cheerful thought, I think I'm going to bed.
