It's Monday, What Are you Reading? (#70)

It's Monday, What are you reading? is a weekly event hosted by Sheila at One Person's Journey Through a World of Books to list the books completed last week, the books currently being read and the books to be finished this week.

This week I was lucky, I read some pretty amazing books, each one of them was a revelation, so let me tell you about them, shall we?

Books I completed 

I LOVED Sins of the Angels Book #1 in Linda Poitevin's phenomenal urban fantasy series, the Grigori Legacy series, and ever since September I have been counting the days 'till the release f Book #2 Sins of the Son. That day has finally arrived and I can tell you Sins of the Son was just as amazing as its predecessor. I loved it, devoured it and now I'm once more in agony having to wait months for the release of Book #3! :-( lol Anyway if you like richly developed exciting urban fantasy and have already devoured everything by Kelley Armstrong, it's time you discovered Linda Poitevin's books, they are amazing!

Lessons in Indiscretions was the very first book I read by Karen Erickson last year. I really enjoyed it and since I have checked out her other stories as well. This was a re-read. Lessons in Indiscretion is a short but very enjoyable sensual historical novella. I was quite satisfied with what it delivered, especially considering this was a short story. My detailed review will be posted next week.

What an amazing debut for Leigh LaValle! I utterly enjoyed The Runaway Countess and devoured it in one day! Mazie and Trent were wonderful characters and their love and struggles beautifully heart-wrenching, loved it!! Detailed review to be posted next week (and Leigh will stop by for a guest post and giveaway on Wednesday, so mark your calendars), until then all I will say is that if you enjoy well written fantastic historical romances you should add The Runaway Countess to your wishlist! (I know that The Runaway Countess became one of those books I'm sure I'll reread several times as a comfort read)

Books I am currently reading

I haven't had time to continue reading this one since last week, and as I have some more urgent review books lined up it will stay on hold for this week as well I think. Maybe it's for the best because that way I can recharge my batteries and soldier on with the darker, emotionally taxing story.

I enjoy That Filthy Book like one savours a deliciously rich ice cream or fondant chocolate cake. Each bite(=chapter) is a frisson of delight, wonderful!

This is Book #4 in Maggie Robinson's Courtesan Court series, and I am very curious how Maggie redeems an almost villain character and makes it a hero the reader can feel sympathy and compassion for.

Books I can't wait to start

Undone by Lila DiPasqua

Book #4 in Lila DiPasqua's Fiery Tales, scorching hot historical romances based on classic fairy tales will be released very soon, and after staring at this gorgeous cover and knowing Lila's previous and most delicious stories I can't wait to read Undone, doesn't it look stunning? *dreamy eyes*

I'm still holding out for this light and fun contemporary romance, I'll get to it soon, at least I hope ;-)
