What the Wenches Are Reading
Some upcoming releases have the Wenches all atwitter! Today is the release of Sixth Grave on the Edge by Wench favorite Darynda Jones, so look for a review soon! And that's just the beginning of a summer (for Northern Hemisphere Wenches) filled with wonderful new books. Next up is the long awaited MOBY, Outlander #8, and several Wenches are preparing for that.

Angela: Finished Shadow Kissed (Vampire Academy #3) by Richelle Mead. I enjoyed it, even if Rose continues to irritate me and it had a very nice twist in it. Well played Mead. Next up I'm delving into 11/22/63 by Stephen King as a buddy read. I haven't read any of his books so it should be interesting.
Anne: My in laws are in town to see the baby. So I didn't get much reading done this week.
Barb: I finally got caught up in something, although it was the last thing that I fell head-over-heels in love with. I finished reading Bloodlines and moved on to The Golden Lily. The foreshadowing is absolutely delicious, and I see so many little things that didn't mean much the first time around, filled with meaning as I know where they will lead. Sydney's attempt at dating
Care: This week I plowed through Long Time Gone, Dirty Deeds, AND Daylight Again all by S.E. Jakes. Holy cow. I'm stuck. I need to keep reading. I'm on the cusp between being hooked and irrevocably sunk, and I'm not sure which way it's going to go. But, since it's going to be a while before If I Ever comes out... I'll have to see if I can't find something else to read to keep me busy.
Donna: I've been rereading some favorite passages from the Outlander series. It won't be long now until Written In My Own Heart's Blood is released! Huzzah!
Kathi: I read the second half of An Echo in the Bone (Outlander #7) this week. I can’t believe I’m almost done with my reread and I’m amazed that it’s blown by so quickly. It’s going to be a verra long three weeks waiting for Written in my Own Heart's Blood to release. But I get such a kick out of the way Diana Gabaldon left the sh*t hitting the fan in every storyline at the end of Echo. Even after all these books, she keeps us guessing what in the world is going to happen next.
Merit: At last I started rereading the Outlander series. I am skimming through the books. I read the first three books so far. I enjoy them all over again. It is not surprising of course that the second time provides new revelations. Some sentences that looked innocent to me the first time have a different meaning now. DG planted them like little gemstones here and there. I certainly needed this second time reading.
Zee: I LOVED Indigo Spell... so much. Adrian is wonderful! And Sydney is one of a kind! I love that. She is absolutely unique, with her prejudices and issues (which she will overcome.. slowly but surely) and they are so different, but so very amazing together. I am loving this series a whole lot more than I thought I would. Suffering through Vampire Academy was totally worth it. Onto The Fiery Heart!
