Malin’s CBR-III Reviews # 55-68: Too many to actually name here

So because it’s summer, I’ve been reading a whole lot. My last update here on the group blog was in early July. I’m Norwegian. I live in Oslo. Most of you know what happened here on the 22nd of July. Because of the news reports, varying from truly unbelievable and horrifying in the beginning, to just plain depressing now, in addition to reports on the English riots (my husband’s from Newcastle), I’ve not been in the mood for a lot of heavy reading over the last month or so. So there is a lot of romance here. Books that guarantee a happy ending. No unhappy rioting youth or crazy right-wing mass murderers.

55. After 11 long years, I finally know what happens to Jon Snow, Tyrion and Danaerys: http://kingmagu.blogspot.com/2011/08/55-dance-with-dragons-by-george-r-r.html

56. Book the fourth in Gail Carriger’s entertaining Victorian Steampunk adventure/romance series: http://kingmagu.blogspot.com/2011/08/56-heartless-by-gail-carriger.html

57. Victorian mystery with romantic undertones: http://kingmagu.blogspot.com/2011/08/57-dark-enquiry-by-deanna-raybourn.html

58. Contemporary romance with a fairly ridiculous premise. Fun, though: http://kingmagu.blogspot.com/2011/08/58-yours-to-keep-by-shannon-stacey.html

59. Contemporary and historical fiction, both in the same book!: http://kingmagu.blogspot.com/2011/08/59-winter-sea-by-susanna-kearsley.html

60-62: Trilogy about the three sons of a notorious widowed Duchess. They’re all very good in bed: http://kingmagu.blogspot.com/2011/08/60-62-londons-greatest-lovers-trilogy.html

63. Twelfth and rumoured to be penultimate book in Kelley Armstrong’s Women of the Otherworld series: http://kingmagu.blogspot.com/2011/08/63-spell-bound-by-kelley-armstrong.html

64. Second book in Rick Riordan’s entertaining young adult series. Even more Egyptian gods!: http://kingmagu.blogspot.com/2011/08/64-kane-chronicles-throne-of-fire-by.html

65. A teenage girl gets abducted and taken to the Australian Outback. A strange relationship with her abductor develops. Budding romance or Stockholm Syndrome?: http://kingmagu.blogspot.com/2011/08/65-stolen-letter-to-my-captor-by-lucy.html

66. Book 1 of Julie Anne Long’s Pennyroyal Green series: http://kingmagu.blogspot.com/2011/08/66-perils-of-pleasure-by-julie-anne.html

67. Book 2 of the Pennyroyal Green series: http://kingmagu.blogspot.com/2011/08/67-like-no-other-lover-by-julie-anne.html

68. Book 3 of the Pennyroyal Green series: http://kingmagu.blogspot.com/2011/08/68-since-surrender-by-julie-anne-long.html

I think I may have reached my saturation point for historical romance for a while, and will probably read something completely different next. We shall see. I will endeavour to update on the group blog a bit more often, so my link and tag lists don’t become quite so long.
