Reading

So these are some stories that I'm into:





Scrap Metal, by Harper Fox

I read this book months ago now, but it's still stuck with me.  The atmosphere, the mystery, the strong narrative voice, the setting, the emotion.  I keep thinking I'll reread this but getting busy with other things.  But I remember it very clearly; it made a big impression on me.  I think about it often, and I wish I could write with as much emotion as Ms. Fox!




I really enjoyed "Seeing Red," by E. L. Esch.  A lot.  Like, a lot.  I feel like I like the sweet stuff most of the time, but this was a hot read that I also found sweet.  It stuck with me.  I wish this author had more books like this out.  I found the characters very appealing 




How many books hold my attention well enough to read them in one day, laughing almost every page, sometimes twice a page or more?  That was this book for me. It had it all, mystery, humor, "Englishness," and that indefinably wonderful characteristic of charm in the narrator.  I'm looking forward to reading the sequel when it's published.  I enjoyed this book so much I went out and bought almost everything else the author had written afterwards.  This one's still my fave, though.



There are lots of other stories I've enjoyed and will enjoy.  These are just three of my top reads off the...er...top of my head.  :)

  1. I read "Scrap Metal" and loved it, too. I read a lot of m/m romance, and few are as outstanding as that book. Have you read any of JF Smith's books? I highly recommend them.

    I just read my first of your stories the other day, "Good With Dragons." I have to say, I was impressed. I look forward to reading more of your work.

    And thanks so much for reading my story! I'm glad you liked it. It was very kind of you to tell me!
