Reading update- January 2016

I feel like I've kinda fallen off the earth lately, sorry about that. I've gotten out of the habit of blogging at home, and in fact only recently got a laptop at home that hasn't been ruined by spyware and gaming.  But things at work changed at the beginning of January and are exponentially more busy and so free time just disappeared. This should even out soon, but  for now I'm pretty brain dead when I get home. I have still been reading a decent amount and thought I'd try for a monthly update.

Recently read:

Frisk Me by Lauren Layne.  I read Steal Me at the end of last year and absolutely loved it, so I splurged and bought Frisk Me at Christmas. This was not a mistake, and it was also quite good. It was perhaps a bit too similar to Kimberly Kincaid's All Wrapped Up in the rescue hero who doesn't want to be in the spotlight vs reporter aspect, but the romance was good and the attraction was real. I really love the Moretti family in Layne's series and am eager for the rest.

Nobody but You by Jill Shalvis.  It's Shalvis, of course I read it. It wasn't my favorite Shalvis, but I still enjoyed it. Review already written and scheduled for release day, March 29th.

The Accidental Athlete: A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Middle Aged by John Bingham.  I loved the first half of this short book about running. I could completely related to a lot of what he said about never being an athlete until he started running in his 40s. But then he takes this awful, depressing, realistic turn about how when you're running in your 40s and 50s you can't expect PRs and wins and that you're just going to slowly get worse and worse and injured more and more. I ended it mildly depressed and discouraged.

Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli.  I loved this so much. I wouldn't be surprised if this made the top of my 2016 list. LOVED.

Reckless by Kimberly Kincaid. Still reading this one.

New on my Kindle:

Luck is No Lady by Amy Sandas (NetGalley)

Playing Hard by Melanie Scott (NetGalley)

Smarter Faster Better by Charles Duhigg (NetGalley)

Flunking Sainthood by Jana Riess (Amazon)

Irresistibly Yours by Lauren Layne (Amazon)

Written in Red by Anne Bishop (Amazon)

What did you read this month that I need to read?  What did you add to your shelves that you can't wait to read?


  1. I bought Written in Blood too this month. I really meant to read Lauren Lanye's book in January but looks like I will have to squeeze it in some time in February. I really am excited to try her since you have enjoyed her books so much. Have a great week Lisa!

  2. I really want to read that Anne Bishop series. I have the first book but just never seem to get around to it!

  3. you still did a fair bit of reading, bravo!
