It's Thursday... What are you reading?

Hello All,

Well.. It's Thursday again, and you know what that means. It's time for me to give you my weekly reading rundown, and for me to find out what all of you are reading. I have to admit, I didn't buy any new books this week, because I couldn't justify it. I really splurged last week on books, and I have been quite lucky in winning books lately. Let me tell you.. It was HARD for me not to hit that one click button on Amazon, but I was strong. I'm making no promises about next week though. I have so many books to read that I'm considering a challenge for myself, so that I can get through them all. My Catering business has been really keeping me busy lately, but this is the time of year when things slow down before the holidays. Hopefully I will have the time then to get through them all. OK... Enough with my rambling, this is what I'm reading this week.

Mercy Mercy by Eleri Stone

Description (From Publishers Website)

To the Yaguara, an ancient jaguar shape-shifting people living deep in the Amazon jungle, nothing matters more than strength. Iada is their champion; genetically pure, she has been trained since birth to fight. Her destiny is to become the next Queen of the Yaguara by winning the tournament of succession—a battle to the death.

Her opponent is Gabriel, a half-blooded outcast whose mother was human. To everyone's shock, he defeats Iada but does not strike the death blow—instead, he extends mercy, thereby claiming her as his mate. 

Despite their enmity, the attraction between them is powerful, and soon they are mates in more than name only. Their mutual distrust serves only to fuel their passion—two champions bested only by their overpowering desire for each other.

But Gabriel has an agenda that threatens the most basic tenets of Yaguara society—and that will force Iada to choose between her people or her King.

I have heard nothing but good things about this Novella. I didn't read any reviews, because I haven't read it yet, but I did notice all the 4 and 5 star ratings. I am excited to be reading this, and I can't wait to share my thoughts on Mercy with you.

I am also reading..

 Demon's Fall by Karalynn Lee

Description (From Publishers Website)

She was an angel at the gates of Hell.

When Kenan, an incubus, finds a caged angel for sale in the Hellsgate marketplace, he sees her as a challenge. Certain that his skills in seduction will work as well on a heavenly creature as they do on mortal women, he buys Jahel, intent on having her soul as a novelty in his collection.

Knowing he must gain Jahel's trust if she is to come to his bed willingly, Kenan treats her more as his guest than as his slave. When she reveals what brought her to the mouth of Hell in the first place—retrieving the soul of a young girl she was guarding—he even offers to help her complete her mission.

Though he has promised Jahel freedom, Kenan soon realizes she has captured his heart instead. And as their passion for one another grows, they find themselves caught in a struggle between Heaven and Hell, one that will lead them to the very edge of the apocalypse...

This book isn't scheduled for release until Oct. 25. Thanks to Netgalley, and the awesome people at Carina Press, I was given the opportunity to read it now, and it's really good. I'm hoping to finish it today. This is the first book I have read by Karalynn Lee, and I'm not dissapointed.

Well... That's my rundown.

  1. I always enjoy your blog as I keep coming back to it! Thanks for the great book reviews and recommendations. I'm adding both of these books to my TBR list. Right now, I'm reading a non-fiction self help book called "The Sobering Truth" by Jeff Herten, M.D. It explores the numerous facets of alcohol consumption in the United States, including the physical risks, the behaviors associated with alcohol, and the innocent victims of alcohol abuse. It also offers hope for those wishing to become sober and recommends resources to help them turn their lives around. It's a very positive book that offers hope.


I love comments, so feel free to comment all you like :)
