March Reading List - Jennifer B

Five books in March--on par with February. It was an interesting month in reading. Started with a solid bang from Robb's latest and ended (or slid right into April) with the pleasure of a smart, sexy read from a new author. The whole in-between? Dull as dishwater, pretty much.

Promises In Death by J.D. Robb
Solid bang. Didn't mention it in my review, but I agree with many of you--Robb introduced another new character here that I expect--and hope--we'll see more of in the future.

Wicked Ties by Shayla Black (DNF)
Awful enough to warrant its own post.

My Immortal Protector by Jen Holling
Powerful first half, weak ending. Holling's voice though...I'll be back for more.

Never Romance A Rake by Liz Carlyle
Read this out of order it appears. But after ordering the prior release from my library, I opened it and swore I'd read it before. I went back through my log--through three years--and nope, it's not in there. Feels so familiar though. I'll give it one more try before letting it go and moving on. Getting pretty good at that...

Running Hot by Jayne Ann Krentz (DNF)
Took me two weeks to get to the halfway point in this book. It wasn't a bad read at all. It just didn't hold my interest and I finally gave up. Moved on.

Just The Sexiest Man Alive by Julie James
Blogger buzz put this one on my radar (and TBR list) just recently. When I saw it on my library's swap shelf, I grabbed it and ran. Haven't finished it yet, so technically it will be an April read. But...Yay! I'm so enjoying it.

A quick glance at my 2009 reading resolutions:

1) Read almost strictly from my TBR list (not stack, list). Almost Check. The Holling title was an offshoot, so to speak. Every other title here was from my list.

2) Read at least one shiny new release a month. Check. Was first in my library's line for Promises In Death.

3) Catch up--right up--to the new releases in each of my favorite series. Shoot. I need to pay attention to this one. No series reading last month.


  1. Oh thank goodness! I am not the only one who couldn't finish Running Hot!
    I need to get ahold of the Sexiest Man Alive. Everyone just keeps talking about it, but I haven't had a chance to grab it!

  2. Natasha - Send me your address and I'll ship it off to you as soon as I finish it! Email me at jenniferbedits @ yahoo .com

  3. Really really??? Even if I am in Canada??? :D

  4. I can;t seem to bring myself to start Wicked Ties. I want to, I just... can't.

    I'm only on book 7 or 8 of the In Death series. Waaayyy behind, lol

  5. Well I think you're doing great Jenn :) Hopefully, you'll have better luck this month :)

    Promises in Death was good, right? :D

  6. Natasha - That book is winging its way to you now. *g*

    Seneca - Do you have Wicked Ties?

    Nath - Thanks! So far so good. Three books, three great reads. And yup, Promises was perfect.

    Read your post on April new I'm twitching for some of them, LOL. Specially Snyder.

  7. Woot! Thanks again! I am excited to read it! :D I have hears SUCH great things!


Have you read it? What do you think?
