When it's good...
Lately, I've been in a reading funk. I find plenty of books that sound good but I just can't work up the interest to read them. Although I do find the interest to buy them. My TBR stack has turned into a skyscraper.
But I'm trying to get myself back into reading. It does recharge the mental batteries and I need all the help I can get.
It really helped that one of the books I picked up to help myself get defunked was this one. Seraphim by Shelby Reed. Awesome. Plain and simple.
Now I've had it on ebook since it came out, but lately, I don't want to stare at the computer screen, or my pocket PC when I'm reading. So I just never got around to reading it. Then I got the print version. This was what I picked up the night I decided I had to start reading again.
It's a pretty long book for a tradesize paperback, about 350 something pages, I think. Stupid me, I started reading it at like 9pm. When 11:30 rolls around and my eyes started to close on me, I had to set it aside until the next morning. As soon as I dropped kidlets off at their various schools, I devoured the rest of it. I love it when a book grabs onto me and doesn't let go.
Seraphim is a paranormal romance about warrior angels, old evils...love. Some tear jerking moments and some excellent action. It is an erotic romance~but it's not as hmmm...risque as some others. Actually an excellent book to try if you're kind of curious about erotic romance. I'll even link you to an excerpt.
Shelby did an excellent job with the book, and I think it helped bring me out of my reading funk a little. There's several books in my TBR skyscraper that seem to be calling my name and since I beat my deadline, I think I can breathe enough to enjoy them.
Any of you all been in a reading funk? What's brought you out?
