March Flashback


Oh my it has been 5 months since I did a monthly flashback! Things always sped up at the end of the months, but I will try to get back to these summary posts, I promise.

  6. A Creed in Stone Creek by Linda Lael Miller
  7. Minder by Kate Kaynak

Book I liked the best this month: 

Master and Apprentice  All I Ever Wanted (Hqn)  Alien Tango

Master and Apprentice by Sonya Bateman, All I Ever Wanted by Kristan Higgins and Alien Tango, but since it is a given that all Kitty Katt books are amazing, I'd like to highlight All I Ever Wanted and Master and Apprentice.

When reading All I Ever Wanted, I instantly fell in love with Kristan Higgins' unequalled writing. You laugh, you cry but you are smiling even through your tears when you read a Kristan Higgins novel. So I can't wait to revisit this experience and read more of her books!

And those who have been following Ex Libris know how much I loved Master of None (book #1 in the Gavyn Donatti series) by Sonya Bateman (you can read my review here), but the expectations with a sequel are always high, and sometimes very difficult to meet them. Well there was no such problem with Master and Apprentice, it met and highly exceeded all my expectations! It was amazing: it is incredibly well written and the laugh out loud witty humour is still present! Yay!

Sonya stopped by for a virtual book signing and you can win a copy of either Book#1 Master of None or Book#2 Master and Apprentice here.


Book I liked the least this month: Without a doubt Magick Charm by Jennifer Wells. Read my review if you want to know why.
