This week's question:

What book have you read recently that has surprised you (good or bad!), or that has been outside your normal reading genre?

First off, I try NOT to read out of genre. Not to say that I haven't ever done that. My least fave genre is historical. Which is quite funny, cause that was what I grew up reading ( The Wolf and the Dove, The Velvet Promise, Shanna, etc...).

Also, I don't like to call attention to books that **whispers**I didn't quite enjoy. Writing is hard. And I never want to bad mouth an author's work--it just doesn't seem professional as a blogger. I try to give constructive criticism and never bash.

How about I use the word disappointing?  That sounds better.

And I'll go even one step further and offer you one good and one disappointing.

The Wolf Who Loved Me ~This is an historical book that I surprisingly enjoyed and laughed while reading. I will most definitely read a Lydia Dare historical romance.

Matthew ~This book was a disappointment for me. Yes, it was also an historical, but I typically love reading this author. She has written under another name, Beth Williamson--and I have been pleased with the books I have read by her. That is why I was so looking forward to Matthew. And it just didn't do it for me.

What about you? What book have you read recently that surprised you or left you with just feeling "meh..."


  1. I steer clear from Cowboy books because I can't relate to homesteads and horses.

    1. Braine--it totally depends on the author. Lorelie James? HELL Yeah!! LOL.

  2. Love Lydia Dare wolf series. I have never heard of second author. Kind of bummed it was not has good because the cover is very nice.

    1. WD-
      I know--it bummed my out, too :(
      Thanks for leaving me some comment love :)

  3. Hey girl thanks for following. I've not read this books but as I love westerns and cowboys I might give Matthew a try. As for your question of my was kind of crazy. I got lost a bit if I didn't read who the email was from but at some point I didn't even had to look at who it was coming from. I just knew...

    1. Minnie~ I hope you like Matthew more that I did :)

  4. I've heard good things about the Lydia Dare book. haven't heard about the other one though. I love historical romance, but only the regency era, but I haven't read as many as I used to.

    1. It's been forever and a day for me to read a period piece like Regency romance. Who is your favorite author in that genre?

  5. I have The Wolf Who Loved me on my kindle I'm probably going to be reading it soon. Too bad about the Emma Lang book I really want to read that one.
    Check out my DLS post :)

    1. Kimberly~
      The great thing about books it that just because I didn't particularly love it, doesn't mean that someone else won't :)
      Thanks for stopping by and commenting! Have a great weekend~

  6. That cover of Mathew is beautiful. Too bad the story was a disappointment.

    1. Barksless...
      It was a drool worthy cover for sure. :)
      thanks for stopping by and commentiong--I hope you have a great weekend!

  7. I <3 historical! I understand about not bashing an author and it being unprofessional. But you can def be disappointed in a book & point out what you didn't like about it. Constructive criticism at its best!



I love getting comments...tell me what you thought of my post!
