Manic Monday: Full Moon Rising by Keri Arthur, Grimspace by Ann Aguirre and Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro

Each Monday (or the closest I can get to Monday) I will be posting a Past/Present/Future Reading Post called Manic Monday. Don't hate me if I post it on a Tuesday - it just indicates how "manic" my Monday really was! If you want to see more of what I have been reading, I try and update my Goodreads account with each book I am reading.

What I just finished reading
Genuine Lies by Nora Roberts
Stars: 4/5

Blurb from Goodreads:
When a renowned writer with a fierce drive to discover the truth agrees to pen the biography of a Hollywood film legend, she encounters resistance from the woman's stepson after she tries to dig into the woman's past. First time in hardcover.

Why I picked it up: I needed something to take with me on my travels yesterday.
Why I finished it: I got into the intrigue of the story and couldn't remember who the killer was.
I'd give it to: Nora Roberts fans.

What I am reading now

I am going to be reviewing for Love Books and the first one I am to review is Full Moon Rising by Keri Arthur. I like her Riley series, so I don't see any hardship in having this review finished by Wednesday. I haven't been in a reading mood in the last couple of days, and have been watching dvds instead. I feel really bad about not reading but when I can't concentrate, it is best not to push myself! Wish me luck with this review LOL

Full Moon Rising by Keri Arthur

Blurb from Goodreads:
In this exciting debut, author Keri Arthur explodes onto the supernatural scene with a sexy, sensuous tale of intrigue and suspense set in a world where legends walk and the shady paths of the underworld are far more sinister than anyone envisioned.

A rare hybrid of vampire and werewolf, Riley Jenson and her twin brother, Rhoan, work for Melbourne’s Directorate of Other Races, an organization created to police the supernatural races–and protect humans from their depredations. While Rhoan is an exalted guardian, a.k.a. assassin, Riley is merely an office worker–until her brother goes missing on one of his missions. The timing couldn’t be worse. More werewolf than vampire, Riley is vulnerable to the moon heat, the weeklong period before the full moon, when her need to mate becomes all-consuming.…

Luckily Riley has two willing partners to satisfy her every need. But she will have to control her urges if she’s going to find her brother….Easier said than done as the city pulses with frenzied desire, and Riley is confronted with a very powerful–and delectably naked–vamp who raises her temperature like never before.

In matters carnal, Riley has met her match. But in matters criminal, she must follow her instincts not only to find her brother but to stop an unholy harvest. For someone is doing some shifty cloning in an attempt to produce the ultimate warrior–by tapping into the genome of nonhumans like Rhoan. Now Riley knows just how dangerous the world is for her kind–and just how much it needs her.

Grimspace by Ann Aguirre

Blurb from Goodreads:
As the carrier of a rare gene, Sirantha Jax has the ability to jump ships through grimspace—a talent which makes her a highly prized navigator for the Corp. Then a crash landing kills everyone on board, leaving Jax in a jail cell with no memory of the crash. But her fun's not over. A group of rogue fighters frees her…for a price: her help in overthrowing the established order.

Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro

Blurb from Goodreads:
From the Booker Prize-winning author of The Remains of the Day comes a devastating new novel of innocence, knowledge, and loss. As children Kathy, Ruth, and Tommy were students at Hailsham, an exclusive boarding school secluded in the English countryside. It was a place of mercurial cliques and mysterious rules where teachers were constantly reminding their charges of how special they were.

Now, years later, Kathy is a young woman. Ruth and Tommy have reentered her life. And for the first time she is beginning to look back at their shared past and understand just what it is that makes them special–and how that gift will shape the rest of their time together. Suspenseful, moving, beautifully atmospheric, Never Let Me Go is another classic by the author of The Remains of the Day.

What I am reading next
Rosie (@Fangbooks on Twitter) lent me a big juicy bag of books! I am tossing up whether to read the second Ann Aguirre book straight away, or read about cowboy vampires... decisions decisions...

Interesting mix of books you have going there!

I would vote for cowboy vampires, only because I haven't ever read any of those myself!
