The Quarterly Book Report


Inspired by posts I spotted on Twitter, I thought it might be fun to share what our favorite reads were for the first quarter of 2015. If it goes well, I may do it every quarter. Jax and I will share our five favorite books that we read between January 1st and March 31st of this year (Steph was going to join us but ran out of time).

Bea's Faves

In no particular order, my favorites were-

1. Otherworld Nights: An Anthology by Kelley Armstrong:  I love this series, love the short short stories, some of which were a slice of life, and I love having the stories in one collection instead scattered here, there, and everywhere.
2. Cold Cold Heart by Tami Hoag - intense, dramatic, heart-wrenching, and provocative.
3. Crash & Burn by Lisa Gardner - twisty, suspenseful, thrilling, intense, and provocative.
4. Toying with His Affections by Laura K. Curtis - sweet, sexy, loved the characters, fun
5. Trust No One by Jayne Krentz - good blend of mystery & romance, made me laugh, kept me reading

Jax's Faves

1. Dead Heat by Patricia Briggs - Charles and Anna....Alpha and Omega...but not the way you might think.
2. The Virgin by Tiffany Reisz - I love her work. Profound and profane.
3.Playing Knotty by Elia Winters - Naughty, but with rope!
4. Bounty Hunt by Kelley Armstrong - Graphic Novel, with a bit more story on one of the newer characters, Reese. The art work is done by Xaviere, who's done many illustrations for KA's Subterranean Press books.
5.Once Upon a Cool Motorcycle Dude by Kevin O'Malley - This was a reread for me. It was a favorite of my kids, and one brought it home from the library.

What were YOUR favorite reads last month? Share in the comments.


  1. I also read-- and loved-- Crash and Burn, and Cold Cold Heart. I like this feature idea of yours. Enjoy your weekend!

  2. I have adored Tami Hoag for years and years. I have Cold Cold Heart sitting on my Kindle as a treat for myself when I finish the WIP I am working on.

    1. It's definitely a treat, but oy, the beginning was hard to read.I almost gave up but I'm glad I didn't.

  3. Looks like you had some good ones. Tami Hoag is great, but I haven't read her in quite some time.

    1. I'll definitely read het again.

  4. Kelley Armstrong made both lists - impressive! I really need to read the latest Charles and Anna, I'm so behind!

    1. It was good. We all liked it.


Thanks for taking the time to comment. I enjoy hearing from my readers. Let;s talk!
