WEEKLY RECAP: July 15-July 21, 2013


THIS WEEK ON FEMINIST FAIRY TALE REVIEWS
MY READING UPDATE


The Heiress Effect by Courtney Milan -- Lovely and thought-provoking romance with a heroine who does everything she can to avoid marriage and a hero desperate to join the ranks of Parliament.  Review coming soon.

MacRieve by Kresley Cole -- Entertaining installment in the lengthy Immortals After Dark series.  Focuses on a member of the Lykae clan and a heroine becoming an immortal herself.  Review found at the link above.

Catch a Ghost by S.E. Jakes -- First in a new romantic suspense/male-male romance series.  It has two amazingly complex characters and enough intrigue to keep me reading late into the night.  I wanted a bit more interaction between the two heroes, but am anxious to read the next in the series.  Review coming closer to the September release date.

When Lightning Strikes by Meg Cabot -- First in the 1-800-Where-R-U series about a teenage girl who gets struck by lightning and gains psychic powers.  An easy read that kept my attention though I would have liked a bit more character development.  Review coming soon.
