I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading
Jan2023: Not much has changed. Writing a fanfiction now O_o as well as reading but I bought 7 new books in December and hope to get those read soon. Crossing fingers about adding challenges (late!)

Started but unfinished books

I've started two books this year that I haven't finished.

This one was a library book that I checked out because I liked someone's review. Our library allows you three weeks and I didn't start it for two then couldn't get into it before I had to return it. Maybe I'll try again later.

The second book was purchased because it was part of Lori Foster's SBC Fighters series. My Man Michael, book 4. I throughly enjoyed the previous three books in the series and I did read the back. It seems Michael was involved in an accident that shattered his leg and he won't be able to fight anymore. Friends come to visit & the head of SBC offers his a job but Michael doesn't want to train, he wants to fight. Along comes a pretty girl who offers him a chance to be whole & fight again. The catch? It's in 2220. Yep, this one is time-travel. The problem is that time travel was not mentioned on the back cover and the category on the spine is Romance not Time Travel Romance

I got to chapter 4 before I put it down. I'll try again later, might as well - I bought the book - but I hope Michael's attitude changes. See, he wants the pretty girl and she repeatedly told him that "breeding" was not allowed for her, she was one of the warriors but he wouldn't agree to go with her without a real kiss - not those little ones he kept sneaking.

Grrr, what part of "I'm not allowed" does he not understand. Granted, he does not believe she's from 2220 but still, no means no.
