another list of books I have read but not reviewed

I pretty much never have time to be on here anymore. If you want me to know something email is a better method these days, since I can check it on my phone while in transit.

Wild Ride by Jennifer Crusie and Bob Mayer. Strong B. It was funny without being too cute, and there were some plot twists I found very entertaining.
Ammie Come Home by Barbara Michaels (aka Elizabeth Peters). B-. This was a fun spooky story.
Sexual Adventures of Catherine M by Catherine Millet. C. It took me literally years to finish this book, and I think it was actually kind of bleak. She had a lot of sex but didn't seem to enjoy it very much.
Angels of Darkness by Sharon Shinn, Meljean Brooks, Ilona Andrews, and Nalini Singh. B. I liked it a lot and it introduced me to some new authors. I am more used to seeing the big hitters of romantic fantasy being paired with writers whose work I don't like at all, like Mona Lisa and Yasmine Galenorn.
Birthright by Nora Roberts. B-. I liked the story but it was looooong.
Queen of Denial by Selina Rosen. B+, a rollicking good time and quite funny. If you liked the movie Spaceballs you should give this one a try.
Reamde by Neal Stephenson. B+ also. This one was almost as long as Birthright but the writing quality was so much higher. It was funny, and Stephenson managed to juggle many viewpoint characters convincingly and without losing his audience.
