Throwback Thursday #1

This feature should “throw” you back a year ago. This feature is made by me and I’ll post my read books in the CW (calender week) the year before.
I explain it: it’s the year 2016, I throw back to 2015. Every Thursday I look up which CW we have and go this exact CW in the year before back. 2017 I throw back to 2016 and so on. 😉
But let’s see how it works. 😉

Calender Week 36 2016 (september 5th – september 11th) — Calender Week 36 2015 (august 31st – september 6th)

Last year, from august 31st until september 6th 2015 I read this great book:

Duck by Kim Dare
Avian Shifters #1


Raised among humans, Ori Jones only discovered he was an avian shifter six months ago. Unable to complete a full shift until he reaches his avian maturity, he still can’t be sure of his exact species.

But with species comes rank, and rank is everything to the avians. When a partial shift allows the elders to announce that they believe Ori to be a rather ugly little duckling, he drops straight to the bottom rung of their hierarchy.

Life isn’t easy for Ori until he comes to the attention of a high ranking hawk shifter. Then the only question is, is Ori really a duck—and what will his new master think when the truth eventually comes out?

What I think about it?

It was really a new adventure to me. I started to read ebook in earnest this year and this book was beyond my comfort zone. 🙂 I also was blown away by  the cover. ❤
It was the first book with the BDSM topic. Kim Dare did a great job and it felt good to be introduced to this by reading a book of an advanced writer (and she truly is with over 100 titles written in the genre *^*).
I was also impressed by the shape shifter topic. I never read a real avian shifter story, only m/f books where a few minor character shift into birds but never this wide and – of course – not combined with m/m and BDSM. I fondly remember this book and I love to have a re-read when I find the time. 🙂

There is also a side story (Avian Shifters #1.5) with Ori and Raynard, called Celebration. A great addition to the first book.

And you?

Look up your shelf: what book did you read during this period? Do you remember? 😉 Feel free and tell me if you like. Or tell me if you maybe have read this book too. 🙂
