Well she's done it again. Another great book by an incredible author. Time after time she has proven herself and keeps me wanting more. I just finished this one and I'm thrilled that it is the first in a series. Can't wait for book 2.
My Pick of the Week: Dust To Dust ~ The Prophecy: Book 1

I don’t know why, but every now and then I hit a reading slump. I start several different books by different authors, but for some reason they fail to hook me. I know people who, once they start a book, have to finish it—even if they don’t like it. I’m not one of those people. There aren’t enough hours in the day and reading time is much too precious. I want to be entertained or inspired. I don’t want to have to work hard or force myself to get through it.
Hence… two steampunk novels that I was originally excited about, I’m setting aside. The writing is wonderful, but perhaps the sci-fi slant is too strong for me? I’m not sure. I may re-visit these books later, but just now… they’re not for me. I also started a historical mystery—also well written—that failed to suck me in and one historical romance. I honestly don’t think it’s the books. It’s me. My frame of mind. Something.
Given this fidgety state, I am rereading three books I loved. Books in a series leading up to the release of the fourth. I already blogged about them a few weeks ago, so I won’t go into detail. I’ll just say that right now, they’re spurring me through my reading slump.
My Pick of the Week: Darkfever, Bloodfever and Faefever
Urban fantasy with a wee bit of romance. Dark, decadent, and at times, humorous. The fourth in the series, Dreamfever, will be mine mid-August!
