m/m rutt challenge: your links

The time has come for you to add a comment with your link to the review (can be a goodreads review) of the book you read as part of my awesome m/m ‘get me the fuck out of this rut’ challenge.

Don’t forget that there are two $20 ARe vouchers up for grabs: the first for anyone who read and reviewed a book that they would have ordinarily avoided like the plague; and, the second for the person who read the most books out of their comfort zone.

Now go forth and link, my sweets. I won’t do the draw until 12 noon Monday 22 March my time.

Here are a couple of Cecile’s cookies (pic kindly taken by Patti *g* ) to inspire you:

    Okay, I said historical and fantasy.

    Here is LINK for my report.

    But I also read From Afar which is an historical (with vampires again, what's up with that?) so I guess it counts as historical #2.

    Then I read A Fair Trade which is sort of an Historical, so I'd say 1/2 point for that.

    So that's it for me.

  3. I am a YA and a full Anthology

    Love By the Numbers..

    Echoes Of The Future

  4. Lily says:

    My choice was YA. I ended up reading Without Sin by J. Tomas and really liked it a lot.

    My review is posted HERE.

  5. Jenre says:

    My two were YA and anything with religious hatred and I reviewed Thinking Straight by Robin Reardon here.

  6. Mine was YA (Vintage) and it is

  7. Patti says:

    *whispers* I haven't read any m/m yet this year even though I joined a challenge!

    *holds hands out for spanking with ruler*

    Thanks for the bloggy pimpage – not sure why but I do love that pic!

  8. Kassa says:

    My review for the horror (Alive on the Inside) coming up soon.
    But I did the novella HERE!

  9. Kris says:

    Thanks for the links, guys.

    Patti: “*whispers* I haven't read any m/m yet this year even though I joined a challenge!”

    Bad, Patti. Bad!

    You're welcome for the pimpage. I figured I owed you for those pretty cookies. πŸ™‚

    Menage: FU by Mia Watts

    Fantasy: Hero by Heidi Cullinan

    Fantasy: The Guardian by Mary Calmes

    Historical: Seducing Stephen by Bonnie Dee & Summer Devon

    SciFi: My Fair Captain & The Englor Affair by JL Langley

    Summary: I enjoyed the historicals and scifi much more than I expected! Thank you for the challenge, Kris, because it definitely moved them up my list. The menage and fantasy, alas, not really my thing.

  11. Chris says:

    D'oh – forgot to subscribe to the comments on that last comment. Ignore this. Nothing to see here.

  12. Kris says:

    Chris, 5? Were you determined to get a voucher or what? πŸ˜‰

  13. Chris just loves being a weiner!

  14. Chris says:

    What?! Good lord, you know how much I read and what a notorious book slut I am – why are you surprised?!

    *sticks out tongue at wren*

  15. Kris says:

    *leaving Wren out on that limb on her own*

    Chris: Good point. Not really that shocking when you think about it.

  16. Kris: Thanks for nothing.

    Chris: I'm just jealous! *bats eyelashes*

  17. Chris says:

    Where is my axe… Hmm…

  18. Kris says:

    Wren: You did that all on your lonesome, mate. Don't be dragging me down with you.

  19. Chris says:


    I'm a Minnesotan. Surely I must have a small woodchipper in my closet?

    *sound of rummaging*

  20. *swings from branch into the arms of a brawny cookie*

    La! I'm off then!

  21. Chris says:

    *has strange desire to roll dice to see if wren makes that swing*

  22. Kris says:

    Chris?? What was that weird thudding noise I just heard?

  23. orannia says:

    I love that photo!

    I'm bad and didn't join, but I'm looking forward to reading the reviews πŸ™‚

  24. Kris says:

    You didn't join my challenge?! Hmpf!

  25. JenB says:

    I'm not participating because I no longer have any free time to read good books. *CRIES*

    Also I'd like to state on the record that KRIS IS HARASSING ME VIA EMAIL!

    Please help! Somebody!

  26. Kris says:

    Me harassing you??




  27. JenB says:

    Am so. You'll never prove otherwise.

  28. Kris says:

    No, obviously not…

    …because all I have for proof are your crude messages from your email address??


  29. nichem says:

    I said fantasy and read True of Heart. http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/5822651-true-of-heart

    I liked it so much that I also read Lords of Kellersborne which I liked even more and gave 5 stars to, but since Chris already has me beat in numbers, I didn't write a review of that one (it was painful enough to write my 3 sentences for True of Heart, and notice how I out it off til the last second).

    I bought Fires of Ballian, but even though I enjoyed the first two, I can't seem to muster the energy/ enthusiasm to read that one yet. It may sit in my TBR until you have an m/m rutt challenge 2. πŸ˜›

    It may sit in my TBR until you have an m/m rutt challenge 2. πŸ˜›

    Please dont give her any ideas – I bearly have gotten over my book…

    I need a break – Like a year at the least..


  31. Kris says:

    Richelle: You wrote more then 3 sentences for me. *sniffles* You luff me.

    In all seriousness though I'm really glad that you liked these two books. Definitely a fave of mine. Re: Lords of Kellersborne – If I were you I'd just wait until the fourth and last book is out and then read them together. Less frustrating all round. πŸ™‚

    EH: Don't be so negative. This was fun, dammit.

  32. Kris says:


    So the winner of the most books read out of their comfort zone was:


    And the winner of the 'yay, I participated in this awesome challenge' is:


    CONGRATS! I will email you both separately about this.

  33. Chris says:

    Thank you!!!

    Congrats, Chris and Richelle πŸ™‚
