April 9, 2014 WWW Wednesday 2


This is not a post about the wonderful sites I’ve found on my research trips through the Internet. Rather than doing Top Ten Tuesday this week, I thought I’d try doing something different. So here we are at WWW Wednesday. A book blogging meme hosted by Should Be Reading, it poses three simple questions:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?

Here are my answers:

Currently ReadingI am currently reading two books, because let’s face it – that’s how I roll when it comes to books.

First book off the shelf is Margareta Osborn’s wonderful rural romance, Mountain Ash. It is set in the Gippsland region of Victoria, a beautiful part of the state I have had the great pleasure of driving through on occasion. I’ve been reading this on and off for a few days now, putting it aside to meet some other work and reviewing commitments. However, each time I restart, I am more than pleased to be back within its pages.

I’m also on a bit of a historical romance kick at the moment, so the other book I am reading is Sapphires are an Earl’s Best Friend, the most recent instalment in Shana Galen’s Jewels of the Ton series. Regency rakes, spies and romance are all combining to make this an excellent read for me. I’m very much enjoying it.

Oh, and that cover is just gorgeous. I love that blue dress – I fear I would need a team of Clydesdales to pull the corset strings tight enough for me to fit into it, but a girl can definitely dream…


Finished ReadingIn the last week, I’ve finished a few books, and even – rather sadly – DNF’d one.

If you follow me on Twitter, you will definitely be aware of my unfortunate experience with the book that shall remain nameless. I’m not going to let the title go, because it wouldn’t be fair on the author. But when the not-even-hero’s appendage was referred to as a salami, and the heroine spoke of riding said smallgoods, I was done.

Luckily, my reading week was saved by three wonderful Bliss titles from Entangled, Robin Bielman’s Her Accidental Boyfriend and Wild About Her Wingman, and Sonya Weiss’ Stealing the Groom. I love the sweet, lighthearted and emotional tales that the Bliss line brings, and they definitely helped cleanse my reading soul after the salami book.

I also read Helene Young’s fabulous new romantic suspense, Safe Harbour. I am in the process of writing the review now, so you’ll see my full thoughts shortly. I am giving the book 5 out of 5 – it was wonderfully suspenseful, dramatic and full of twists & turns.



Well, when you have a To Be Read pile as large as mine, it can be a little difficult to pick.

I’ll be taking a short break from the Clearing the Backlist Challenge in order to keep up with my current reading.

I am looking forward to reading a few soon-to-be-released sports romances from Carina Press: Tap Out by Michele Mannon, Kate Willoughby’s On the Surface, and Imaginary Lines from Allison Parr (I’ve been hoping Abe would get his story).

What are you up to, reading-wise? If you want to, you can leave your answers to the questions as a comment, or if you have a blog, link to your post below.

    I’m with you Ros – I’m currently reading two books: Losing Kate by Kylie Kaden (Kylie is my Critique Partner and I’m loving seeing what her Random House editors have done with the book since I last saw it); and Floored by Ainslie Paton is on my Kindle. The book I most recently finished was Victoria Purman’s Someone Like You; and the next book I plan to read is going to be something by Helene Young. I was lucky enough to pick up two of her books Burning Lies and Safe Harbour as freebies from Amazon in recent weeks.
