And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Hi Teresa, please don't be jealous, I wish I was still in my cozy 1 bedroom apt and wasn't sitting with boxes all around me.  Moving is such a nightmare.  I had everything set up the way I wanted it in the beach area and here in the inland empire, I get lost everywhere I go, plus everything is so far away from me.


 

Yeah moving is never fun...been about 9 years since my last move.

 

We had such a beatifule weekend...sunny and so warm.  Today...cold & snow.  I can barely see out the window the snow storm is so bad.  GRRRRRR    At least it's melting...that's a plus.  I would love to live somewhere that's sunny and warm all year around. I'm still jealous.  LOL

I just read this awesome book, and want to share: Night's Rose

by Annaliese Evans. If a mix of a fairy tale background merged with history starring tons of supernatural creatures sounds like something you would enjoy, you should definitely check it out.

Oooooo, I'm sold too!  Definitely picking this one up!  :-)

 

I also found this one yesterday - Bedeviled by Maureen Child.  Sounds pretty good:

 

Maggie Donovan isn’t interested in overthrowing a Faerie queen. She barely had time to kill the demon that devoured her fiancé. Then she comes home to find a scrumptious hunk in her living room who informs her that saving the Otherworld just happens to be her destiny, and Maggie realizes she may not have a choice…

Well, I would love to say that I am reading something interesting. But I can not. I have read all the books in my house, and am undecided on what to go for next. Anyone have any suggestions?

Check out this thread from the beginning, starting at page 1. I'm sure you'll find some good suggestions.

I am halfway through Angel's Blood by Nalini Singh and it is very good.  It has an interesting take on vampires and angels and has been fast paced enough that it is hard to put down when I am reading on my lunch break.  It sounds like it will be a series and I am looking forward to the next books.

Hi ,

 

My name is Kadie. Great list! I would also recommend Karen Marie Moning's Fae series, Karen Chance's Cassander Palmer and Dorina Bosarab series, Vicki Pettersson's the signs of the zodiac series, Nalini Singh's Psy series (a lot more romance) and Angel series, Jeaniene Frost's series and also Juliet Marillier sevenwaters trilogy (not urban fantasy just fantasy but excellent).

For those that have read the "Otherworld" series by Kelly Armstrong, I would recommend "Men of the Otherworld". It goes into detail about Clayton and Jeremy. It shows the journey they both shared to get to where they are. It adds a lot of the detail that is not in the other books about these two characters.

I stopped at Barnes and Noble yesterday afternoon to browse the bookstore.  I came home with Lover Avenged, Doomday Can Wait, Sins and Shadows, Last Vampire Standing as well as Some Girls Bite.  Oh and how could I forget Dayhunter and Second Skin.  Can I say I went a little crazy in the bookstore?

Hi Teresa,

 

yes, it was like being in a candy store.  I had a great time picking out my fav chocolates.  I am reading Dayhunter and loving it.

Have to recommend <a href="http://www.samanthasommersby.com"> Forbidden: The Temptation</a> by Samantha Sommersby. I am hooked! It's my first Sommersby book -- fast-paced, great, great characters and sizzling love scenes. Fabulous read.

OK, maybe that won't work -- trying to link, so people can find it easily! In any case, look for "Forbidden: The Temptation" at www.samanthasommersby.com.

Re: New and Recommended

So I am going to Vermont for a very relaxing week in mid Aug, and I can't wait to go. Im trying to put together a reading list for my week, but I need some advice on it. Im going to try and save the books coming out til then, however as we all know having a book on hand and not reading it is very hard. Does anyone have any suggestions for books coming up soon that I can take with me?
