Doesn't have to be a book by the Incomparable (is that a word?), Remarkable, Wonderful & Beeeeeeeautiful Lynsay Sands (hehe).
I'm reading The Smoke Thief (Shana Àbe) right now. Its...interesting.
I finished Bliss by LS today too and The Last Mermaid by Shana Àbe yesterday. I read rather fast. Have insomnia. The usual.
What about you ladies and Acal
Just finished Touch of Evil last night by C.T Adams & Cathy Clamp
Reading the second novel Touch of Madness now, really good series, i'm quite disapointed now that the third book seems to be delayed.. its been over a year since the book i'm reading has been out.
Werewolves and the Thrall
Werewolves, matriachal society, the boss isn't the Alpha as commonly known in werewolf fiction, the leader is female named the Acca after the she-wolf that suckled the founders of Rome. The females are sterile and count on human women to bear their off-spring.
The Thrall is a sentient parasitic species that evolved along side humanity, they burrow into the Host's head and lays in the spinal cavity where it feeds on blood to grow. They have massive psychic powers and are adept at controling their Hosts and other humans.
The Thrall only live a few years as the parasite eventually grows too large for the Host's cranial cavity to support, the parasite crushes the hypothalmus and the host and parasite die.
They feed with two protruding fangs on other humans which they call Herd as they are in service to the hive to feed them their blood. The Herd don't live particularly long as they soon enough turn from healthy fit people to diseased looking junkies dying from blood deficenties and defects.
The Thrall Queens control the hives they have much more powerful psychic skills and control over the hive. The thing is that the queen parasite doesn't mind a male body but it is a bit strange reading about Queen Larry The Thrall Queens chose their hosts because of their latent or active psychic skills.
Only people who are psychically gifted can detect Thrall parasites and can resist their effects, werewolves also cannot be affected by them and can shield humans from their psychic attacks
I am currently in the middle of 3 books. I have started the book Atonement by Ian Mcewan, The Welsh Girl by Peter Ho Davies and SWV by our fearless leader Mrs. Spice.
Just finished rereading The Secret Diaries of Miss Miranda Cheever by Julia Quinn. Loved it, highly recommended.
I am now reading The Taming of the Duke by Eloisa James which is the third of four books about the Essex sisters. I read the first one and really liked it and I believe I have the second one around here somewhere but I seem to have misplaced it so I skipped ahead.
I can't really give an fair opinion yet because I have only read the first two chapters. I grabbed it to read in the car because I knew the line for the drive-thru at Dairy Queen would be horrible. It was. This week the weather has been gorgeous, up near 70 degrees away from the lake (Lake Michigan). So I figured there might be a wait. The hard part was trying not to get too involved in the book so I wouldn't get honked at for not moving up when the line advanced. I did good. No honks today!
I am reading Brighter Than The Sun by Julia Quinn. I am about half way thru and it is really good but then all of the Julia Quinn books I have read have been really good.
i finished here with me by holly jacobs today and im starting on baby blues and wedding bells by patricia mclinn
Well I just finished the Circle Trilogy by Nora Roberts!
It was really good.. I have to wait till I go home to get into another one of her Trilogies!!! I have 2 more at home..
But I must go to bed for I have class in the morning..ugh.. thank god its the last day of class!!! You don't know how happy I am!!! yaya!!!!
I am getting into rereading a lot of books I have here at school..
Courting an Angel by Patricia Grasso...it's one of her older books....It's been a year since I have read some of her books so thought I would drag them out to read again:)
Picked up the first two books in Kim Harrison's Demon/Witch series and the second two books in the Wild Wulfs of London from Ronda Thompson
Got a massive collection now..
I am currently reading The Outlaw Demon Wails by Kim Harrison (even though I swore I wouldn't caused she killed off my fave character in the last book)
Well...I'm in the middle of the incomparable (yes, it is a word) Lynsay Sands book, The Chase, and it is wonderful! I also have Bliss. I got both of these today, and was happy to see that my bookstore friends were putting Lynsay Argeneau books on the shelves. They even had two copies of Love Bites...if anyone needs one let me know right away! I may go tomorrow to pick up the other two historicals that I don't have. I'm trying to turn my friend...so I showed her AQB...she was sorting books to put on the shelves. Right now she is reading The Twilight series that many of you have mentioned...maybe I can turn her with an Argeneau book next.
I'm also rereading The Accidental Vampire...which is giving me a new appreciation for it. It is even funnier and more romantic than I realized, and I have not read it as much because of the three books coming out back to back. The thread about the other three Port Henry immortals sparked my interest.
Also, I'm in the middle of reading The Heiress Brides series by Celeste Bradley. She is one of my keeper authors, and this trilogy is turning out to be very good. I'm having to wait on the first book that the bookstore ordered for me, but it should come in about the time the last book is released. I went ahead and read the middle book, and I don't think it messed it up reading it out of order.
The Essex Sisters series by Eloisa James is fantastic...I highly recommend them. Also, I have loved everything I've ever read by Julia Quinn...if she writes it, I buy it. Both of those mentioned on previous posts are such good books. I am especially fond of Julia Quinn and Victoria Alexander because they brought me back to reading the romance genre!
Jacqui, I have never read Patricia Grasso? Does she write historicals...Always like to try out new authors!
Kimberly, my sons learned all the New England States today, and a little information on each. They can tell anyone who is a true New Englander. Then they realized from the flashcard that the states fit together like a puzzle for the map of the states. They have to learn all the states & capitols by region and then be tested on the whole, so they found it really interesting. They also have to learn Canada's provinces. This year's entire study of geography is all of North America.
Hey, Kelli, how do you do that bold type thing and the little heart shapes and things? I haven't figured out how to do that or italic on this forum.
I'm still trying to finish up Crazy Sweet by Tara Janzen. Just haven't had a lot of time to read lately.
(As for the bold text go to the "Some HTML tags for you thread for the answer)
I didn't feel like looking for the thread that talked about authors so I am posting it here.
FYI to anyone who reads Kresley Cole's Immortals After Dark Series Book 4 came out today!!!!!
I'm reading the 3rd book from Kathy Love- (the young brothers series). then while I'm in Al for a few days I'm going to read Gerry Bartlett's series, then after that the 3rd book from Michelle Bardsley (this series is so funny and sexy), then I am going to re-read the BDB so I can be ready when Phury's book comes out.
Yes, I do know how weird I am that I plan books to read.
Hey if you knew me you would understand.
Exactly, glad I am not the only one.
My family always gives me this look
but thats what makes me, me and keeps me sane, especially after work, then to come home and take care of the kids with homework and dinner, but at 7:00pm it is mom's time.
HORRAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Jill!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! lol I pre-ordered it FOREVER AND A MILLION YEARS AGO!
I hope it comes today :) or tomorrow or I will die maybe.
Wren I sent you an e-mail, I hope you don't mind.
Just finished Touch of Madness.. the series is really good, have to wait until July though! For the next book.. (then 12 - 16 months for no.4!!)
Reading The Untamed One then The Cursed One from Ronda Thompson next
I just finished Janet Evanovich's Smitten and now have started the Black Dagger Brotherhood series. Book 1 Dark Lover.
I am reading Sherrilyn Keynon's Fantacy Lover. I started it this morning and I am almost finished, great book!
Linda you are gonna love the BDB. I am so addicted. The 6th book in the series comes out in June and I am going crazy!
Hey I finished this series by Shana Abé called the drákon series and I highly recommend it.
It is amazing. It goes in this order
I just hope there are going to be more books!
If you like series like this... there is this other one called The World Of HetarSeries by Bertrice Small and it is really good too.
I just finished reading "The Eldest" by Christopher Paolini its the Book right after Eragon, seen that movie and loved it how hot was Jeremy Irons in it OH GOODNESS anyways I have to wait till september 20th for the next one "Brisinger" to come out boohoo on that. I also took a step away from fantisy for once and read a book by Andrea Kane called "I'll Be Watching You" REALLY good book actually i was very surprized. Usually if it is out of the fantisy genera it cant hold my interest but this one did it was REALLY good and I read another nonfantisy book by called "Unlawful Enbrace" by Pamala Clare that was a good one too. Other then that I am rereading the "Harlequin" by Laurell K Hamilton casue "Blood Noir" is coming out NEXT MOUTH WOOHOO how great is that YEAH!
I'm reading THE ROGUE HUNTER proofs. (evil grin)
OH!! Was that mean? LOL. Sorry, but you know, it's not for pleasure, I am reading it to find all the errors I can. Hopefully, being able to go really slowly this time means I can catch them all. And if I miss any, Dave will catch them. I'm not holding my breath though. Cause I'm not perfect. Sigh.
Ah well . . .
Lynsay heading back to her proofing...It's a tough job but someone has to do it. (grin)
Well Lynsay the more eyes the better. Why don't you um...post some samples from Rogue Hunter on the forum and we will all be happy to help proofread.
oooh Jill I think that is a really good idea, I like the way you think!
What do you say Lynsay? are you up for some extra help with the proof reading?
WHY MADAM SANDS THAT WAS PURE EVIL!
I love it hehe.
She's got loads of "Spice"
Could I help myself? Nah...
See Lynsay we all just wanna be helpful. That's all.
There is this book that should be coming out that I really want to read...I caught a glimpse of the cover...it's called The Rogue Hunter and is by Lynsay Sands...Has anyone been able to find it yet
Oh, those are the proofs you are reading now, Mrs. Spice, with help from your personal hero!
Lynsay, you do realize that a new book coming out that is written by you makes me wish a whole season would go by a lot faster! Sheesh, it's still Spring...and I'm wishing for September already. It seems that I was just begging for Winter to come so I could have the three back-to-back books!
I'm loopier than I normally am... wren
Oh yeah I heard about that book too. Hoping to convince the author to let us have a sneak peak. Although I am using all my cunning and trickery to make her think that it was solution to going blind on proofreading.
Well unfortunately that is the extent of my brillant ideas. I am all tapped out. So it up to rest of forum to use their considerable skills to get a glimpse of our new book. And I say "our" because it is only a matter of time.
Last week I finished "To bed a beauty" by Nicole Jordan; and now I'm reading "To seduce a bride"
Mia what did you think of the book? I have just recently finished all 3 and really enjoyed them. it was my first time reading anything by Nicole Jordan but I will be looking out for more books by her.
I am reading Sherrilyn Kenyon's Night Play which is part of the Dark-Hunter series I have been reading a few of her books that I had gotten for my birthday from my mom the others were Fantasy Lover and Night Embrace I really like this series and I am trying to find the rest of them up to date so that I can re-read all of them in order.
The Dark-Hunter and Dream-Hunter series are amazing Jodi, you will LOVE them. Her latest is about Acheron (she is finally writing about him and is going to do two books about him) but not out til AUgust.
I am re-reading Lynsays Vamp series.
It takes a day to read two of them so I'm almost done lol.
Waiting on the rest of the historicals I ordered from B&N, and Anthologies from Rhapsody Book Club.
I can't wait to read this book:
I already have a darn copy but it was shipped to my old address and my old roommate hates me so I highly doubt he'll send it he'll probably throw it away out of spite.
so I had to re-order it because the one from BnN was a paperback and I wanted hardcover
It was the first time I read books by Nicole Jordan, too. I was really enjoy them. I think... "To seduce a bride" is more interesting than "To pleasure a lady", but "To bed a beauty" is the most funny and interesting courtship ! I like the Duke of Arden
Mia I really liked all 3 but my favorite was the last one To Seduce a Bride. I just adored Heath
Jodi, it's good that you have Fantasy Lover because I think that is the first book in the Dark-Hunter series...I remember I had to special order it. I'll check your recent lists, but send me one if I don't have it for the Dark-Hunter series.
Night Embrace was my first Dark Hunter book and I had to go back and find copies of Fantasy Lover and Night Pleasures because I liked NE so well. I think NE was the book that got me started in the Paranormal genre. It has slowly taken over my reading. I used to read 90% historical romance, now I read 90% Paranormal. But I've still got tons of Historicals that I want to read, just don't have time.
Wren I will do up a list, I am pretty sure I didn't put the Dark-Hunter series on before, didn't want to give you too many lol!
"The Reluctant Reformer"
I love it so far!
I can't possibly start another book series until I've read everything Lynsay has written, I love her style. It is just too funny how in most of her books someone is in some mortal(immortal even) danger and the men and woman are CONSTANTLY misunderstanding each other ie: Love is Blind, The Perfect Wife and former.
Not to mention all the Argeneau issues
The humor is fun and refreshing...
'It simply wasn't polite to tell a lady that her hands were covered in animal excrement'
So, while I am waiting for the library to FINALLY get a copy of L.A. Banks newest book, The Darkness, I shall continue with Lynsay's Historicals.
I love all the suggestions here. Trying to keep an excel sheet of "To Be Read" and it's getting quite long. Honestly, hubby will leave me if I try to read them all. He's growing tired of watching me read when he can't find a single book that holds his own interest. (That's fine, he can continue watching the History Channel)
Wren: I see you are reading/have read "The Chase". I have it on my dresser but since I strated the Reluctant Reformer first, I wnated to finish then move on....
I am a bit curious about this one as it was the only historical left I hadn't read that the library has in stock, most of the rest I'll have to run to the Book Rack and pick up for my own.
Anyway, so, reading the back I felt a little confused about the story...I will admit it first hand...I HATE HISTORY! I'm terrible, but I almost didn't graduate because of it (and now my 13yr old is failing it, gee, uh) anyway, so....
Please tell me...is it a lot like her others? I loved:
The Perfect Wife
Love is Blind
and current Reluctant...
I know, sounds silly, but I kinda hesitated to dive in.
Tracy looking quite embarrassed.
Tracy you will love The Chase. If you read The Deed and The Key, it's kind of a follow-up to those, but you don't have to read them first to get this one. It is hillarious, especially "The Chase" scenes.
I laughed throughout that book, it is by far my favorite of Lynsay's historicals.
Thank you, although...*pouts* I went to the Book Rack at lunch and they did not have:
The Deed, Key or Switch.
And I am SOOO weird about wanting to read books in order, so, I may just return the book to the library until I can get my hands on the other ones. Maybe tomorrow I will go to the library around the corner and sign up, I believe they have more historicals here in this county VS. my county across the river.
You don't have to read those before The Chase, it's just that The Deed and The Key have some of the same characters in them. One of the main Characters in the Chase is also in the Deed, and the other main character in The Chase is also in the Key. They kind of cross reference each other a little, but not much.
The Switch definitely can be read by itself out of those, as none of the other characters appear in this book.
Tracy I know what you mean. I go crazy if I know there is a series and I missing one or if I read one out order.
