Simply Marvelous Monday (36)

Shelia at, One Person's Journey Through a World of Books gets all the credit for this one...

On Simply Marvelous Monday's

FINISHED LAST WEEK:

Seduced by The Wolf (Heart of the Wolf series - Book 5) by Terry Spear (For review from Sourcebooks)
The Brothers of Gwynedd, Pt. 4: Afterglow and Nightfall by Edith Pargeter (For review from Sourcebooks)
Hero (The Cat Star Chronicles - Book 6) by Cheryl Brooks (For review from Sourcebooks)
The Truth About Lord Stoneville (Hellions of Halstead Hall series - Book 1) by Sabrina Jefferies (For review from the Author)

One great paranormal, one great science fiction novel and two great historicals, definitely a good week. I was sad to see, The Brothers of Gwynedd end, it was a long book but very good for those of us who are history buffs. Seduced by the Wolf was excellent. I wasn't sure what I expected but the authenticity of the wolf behavior really made this book good. Hero was a good book as well. I love science fiction.

READING OR LISTENING TO THIS WEEK:

Foresight (The Gods of Fate series - Book 1) by Sherry D. Ficklin (E-ARC for review from the author)

Got a big line up this week, but I've got quite a bit done on some of these and I look forward to getting them finished and posting the reviews for you. We have a Vampire novel, some contemporary fiction and some historical fiction as well as a memoir of sorts and a collection of shorts. Good stuff!
