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!)

Slave to Sensation

seen on another blog, most likely at J. Kaye's Book Blog, and requested from the local library.

Slave to Sensation
Nalini Singh
Psy-Changelings Series, Book 1

Publisher: Berkley
Release Date: September 5, 2006
format: mass market
pages: 352

I own a iTouch with the Kindle app. This is only important for you to know because I may be purchasing, and starting, book 2 in this series soon after I finish this!

from the publisher:

In a world that denies emotions, where the ruling Psy punish any sign of desire, Sascha Duncan must conceal the feelings that brand her as flawed. To reveal them would be to sentence herself to the horror of “rehabilitation”—the complete psychic erasure of everything she ever was…

Both human and animal, Lucas Hunter is a Changeling hungry for the very sensations the Psy disdain. After centuries of uneasy coexistence, these two races are now on the verge of war over the brutal murders of several Changeling women. Lucas is determined to find the Psy killer who butchered his packmate, and Sascha is his ticket into their closely guarded society. But he soon discovers that this ice-cold Psy is very capable of passion—and that the animal in him is fascinated by her. Caught between their conflicting worlds, Lucas and Sascha must remain bound to their identities—or sacrifice everything for a taste of darkest temptation…

I finished this in one night, using several tissues. I felt invested in Sascha. Haven't we all, at one time or another, felt the need to belong? Or wanted to cry because we felt different? What if you couldn't cry? Or laugh? Or enjoy chocolate? What if you felt flawed? Less than perfect? This just takes that to a different level. I can't wait to read the rest of the series.'s sales rank as of 7-19: #8,085
