June Reading List

I told you that I'd get this up in the next couple of days, so here it is, my long list of books that I read last month... And as a point of interest: these were all first time reads! I've had the Jo Beverley's for a while but hadn't got to read them until now and the same goes for the Kenyon book and the Madeline Hunter novel. The others were books that I just happened across while browsing at the store or ones that I'd heard good things about from friends.

Kresley Cole: MacCarrick Brothers
- If You Dare
- If You Desire
- If You Decieve
Madeline Hunter: The Rules of Seduction


Over all I'd have to say that I enjoyed all of these books. I'd waited such a long time for Feehan's next Drake book and am glad that I wasn't disappointed. As usual Kenyon's D-H world drew me in and I thoroughly enjoyed The Dream-Hunter. Now I'm really looking forward to the next Dark-Hunter book thats slated to come out in the next month or so. I was easily pulled in to the ranks of the Company of Rogues and I will put some effort in to locating the remaining books in the series. The MacCarrick brothers were extremely entertaining and their stories were all really well done.

I was very happy with the paranormal series novels that I picked up last month and can't wait to see more from Johnson, Adrian and Frank. Knights' Master of Dragons held up to the consistent high standards that I've enjoyed in the rest of the Masters series.

The only other books that I want to make any specific comment on are the two Raintree novels that appear on my list. These are the second and third books of the triliogy and were preceeded by Raintree: Inferno by Linda Howard which was released in May of this year. The entire trilogy was fantastic and it was really interesting to read this trilogy because, as you can see, each of the books was written by a different author. It was great to look back at the end of the third book and sort of look at how the three stories weaved together and how until about the middle of the last book you really don't understand everything that was going on in the first two novels. I'm glad that I decided to pick these ones up because they were just great!!

So that's all I've got to say about the books this month. I'll be trying to put up my reading list monthly from now on and I fully encourage any comments or discussion on the novels I list or ones that you'd suggest.

Till next time =-{)...
