The Postman Knock #10


Hello everyone!
We still haven't had snow and I feel a bit disappointed about it. How about you?

Here is what I've READ this week:

A VAMPIRE CHRISTMAS was a short and sweet Christmas story. I've also really enjoyed THE SPECIALISTS: MODEL SPY- such a silly, funny book, spies and weird imagined countries and lots of gadgets and bad bad accents... Very much recommended. THE DUCHESS WAR brought tears to my eyes it was so good, but Courtney Milan does that to me a lot. She is an amazing writer. Beautiful book. WAKING UP MARRIED is a nice story but way too fluffy to take it seriously. However it brought a smile to my face and that's what matters, right? COVET can be summarized in one sentence - all sex and no plot. I still need some sort of plot and character development, peeps, otherwise I catch myself skipping sex scenes to find out a little bit more about the characters. This is not a good author for me. BEYOND SHAME *phew* was incredibly sexy. I got to the end of the book and to my profound surprise found out that this is the same couple who writes Moira Rogers novels. And I don't even like Moira Rogers! However, as Kit Rocha they totally hit the spot for me. More in the review... At last, A BLOOD SEDUCTION just pissed me off. It was shallow, had no character consistency and left me cold.

FOR REVIEW



BOUGHT


FREEBIES


I don't really download random freebies but these are all the authors I really wanted to try and now I can without hurting my purse ;)

GIVEAWAYS

I hope you've been following Christmas With Feature on this blog. So far we are giving away Elizabeth Hunter, Carolyn Crane and Suzanne McLeod's books, but there'll be four more authors next week!
End of the World Giveaway Hop is still going too.

Happy Sunday!

I try and be careful with freebies as well - I have over 80 books on my kindle and I don't want to add any more than necessary! :-)

Birgit said...

I agree with Mel, those freebies can break your neck ... errr, bookshelves! Going through the list of all my unread books recently, I "purged" tons of freebies I hoarded back in 2011 and which I (mostly) got because they were free and not because I was so super excited about them. It's bad, really! Now I rarely get freebies and if I do then only because I really REALLY want to read the book.

I wanted the cooper book but I am so lazy and did not look for my password

kara-karina@Nocturnal Book Reviews said...

You are definitely right, Mel and Birgit. I used to download random freebies but ended up with a pile of books of questionable quality I don't really want to read or dnf almost straight away. Now it's only the authors I know, books recommended to me or on my wishlist, and I enjoy most of them. There is not a single random book on my computer LOL

Blodeuedd, nooo! You should ask for a new one! It's still free :)

Melliane said...

I confess I didn't read a blood seduction with all the mixed review I saw. Now I'm anxious to read yours as well. Happy reading!

kara-karina@Nocturnal Book Reviews said...

Dehlia, seriously think you shouldn't read it. It's not good. :(

Mel@Thedailyprophecy. said...

I really want to read Laini Taylor! Happy reading :D

We had snow but it's gone now - thank goodness! I hate it!

Lots of new to me books there, I'll have to check them out. Enjoy :-D

kimbacaffeinate said...

o.o Blood of the Wicked has me curious..eep! Lovely haul this week, now that your book ban is over you my dear have been having fun! The Sunday Post

Maja (The Nocturnal Library) said...

A Blood Seduction looks great but it's more PNR than UF and I'm afraid I won't like it. Hopefully that won't be the case. I hope you'll enjoy Daughter of Smoke and Bone, I just bought the second book and I'm very excited about it.
Happy reading.

Michelle said...

Great haul this week, glad you enjoyed Model Spy. I am in two minds wether to read Waking Up Married, its not my ususal type of read.
Enjoy all your reads and thanks for stopping by

Hannah @ Once Upon A Time said...

Reminds me, I have an email to reply to re: Untimed somewhere..

Joyous Reads said...

Awesome haul, luv. "All sex and no plot" sounds like porn to me...heheheheh. Covet looks interesting. I might have to troll Amazon for that book.

Have a great week, K. :)

Melissa (My World...in words and pages) said...

Looks like quiet the collection this week. Great haul! Hope you enjoy when you get to them all. :)

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
