I’m on an airplane right now! And I might be reading these things on my Kindle. Unless I’m reading these things from my suitcase.
Front Lines and Silver Stars by Michael Grant. What an amazing premise this book has, women can sign up and be drafted in WWII. And such a great Goodreads review; 4.14 for book 1 and 4.4 for book 2! The only thing I don’t like is only 2 of the 3 books in the series are out. So if I get really addicted or there’s a cliffhanger that would be annoying. Again, not sure I’ll like it so I didn’t want to commit to bringing two 550+ page books with me. HOLY CRAP. Definitely Kindle books.
Last, two romances. I just finished A Rogue by Any Other Name by Sarah MacLean and liked it a lot. Romances are a necessary evil sometimes. I hate them and I love them all at once. I hate the formula that they both seem to follow but occasionally I like to pick one up. This is similar to my feelings toward mysteries. The second book in MacLean’s series is One Good Earl Deserves a Lover which I got on my Kindle. I mean, look at that cover. What great colors. I found this series through a blog post called 14 Romance Novels for Non-Romance Readers. I have no idea how I got there other than the RA for All blog I follow is having a Why I Love series on different genres and the last one was about romance.
None of these books take into account my backlog of Netgalley titles. Some of the ones I’m squeeing over include Mrs. by Caitlin Macy (pub 2/13) and The Female Persuasion by Meg Wolitzer (pub 4/3). That’s it. So many books, not enough travel time. Happy weekend!
