WEEK IN REVIEW: Week Ending 9th November 2014

Week In Review

Son of No OneHey, everyone. I hope you have all been having a great week. It is hard to believe that it is now November and the nights are getting darker earlier. It also means that it isn’t very long to Christmas. This should mean some of our favourite authors will be releasing new books in time for the festive season.

So this week, I am pleased to say, I managed to finish three books. This is the best I have managed in a little while, which is part down to it not being my week for driving during the commute to work and part down to the books just being plain, darn awesome

First up, I managed to finish Vampire Seeker by Tim O’Rourke. This is the first book in the Samantha Carter Series and due to a mix up, I had read the sequel to the book, Vampire Watchmen, first. This really didn’t detract me from my enjoyment and I admit, I am in love with this series. You can find out in more detail on my thoughts about this book on Tuesday 11th November, when my full Review is up.

After finishing this, I read The Highwayman’s Daughter by Henriette Gyland. It has been a while since I have read any Historical Romance, but I decided to pick this one up after promising myself that I would try and read more books published by Choc Lit, since I had enjoyed The Wedding Proposal so much. True, it is a completely different genre, but this book showed that the publisher has a raft of excellent authors on their list. I really loved this book and it had this lovely mix of a good old fashioned fairy tale, with a really complex mystery surrounding the main characters. My review for this book should be up sometime in the next week

Lastly, I finished reading Bound by Night by Larissa Ione, which is the first book in her Moonbound Clan Vampire series. I really enjoyed this book too and I felt it had an interesting take on the Vampire/Human relationships. There is plenty scope for where this series could go and I have some theories on what the next book will be about. I am going to read the second book, Chained by Night very soon.

So, continuing a change of genre, I have just started Son of No One by Sherrilyn Kenyon. I’m not too far into the book, but it looks to be pretty interesting on the first chapter alone. This was a series that I had really gone off of, but after reading Styxx last year, I was sucked back in. (No pun intended). So I am rather excited to see what the series has in store

That’s all from me this week. Please let me know what you are all reading.

Until then, have a great week.
