My June reads

Posted by reviewer | 9:41 p.m. | | 7 comments »

At the start of June I had planned to only do re reads. That got old pretty fast, so after about 5 books, I started reading new (to me) books. I have a problem with not finishing things that I start. Just like my half finished quilts and scrap book albums, I gave up on my re reading.

It was a rather good reading month. 25 books. I just want to mention a few things about some of the books I didn't review.

Lydia Joyce's Voices of the night was very well written. It's about a young girl thief who becomes the mistress of a nobleman. She has suffered memory lose since she was a child, so she doesn't know that she comes from a very high class family. I like LJ's writing style. It's really smooth and easy to read. Her characters are complex, but no so much that you need a shrink to figure them out.

Hara's Legacy you can buy from Samhain. It is about three brothers and the eldest brothers wife who all have phsycic powers. One of the brothers have a vision of the future about aliens attacking. He moves his family to safety, but after a few years of living in isolation, the other brothers start to get testy. Most women died during the first alien attack, and their sister in law is pretty much the only female around. After one of the brothers (the one married) has another vision of the future, he and his wife make the decision to invite the other guys into her bed. In order for their family to survive the next alien attack, she needs to be pregnant. He cannot give her a baby, and his brothers are the only option.
It sounds odd, but it's all explained in the book, and it makes a lot of sence. If you liked the Men of August series, or Colters woman, then you will like Hara's Legacy.
