Re: What are you currently reading?

I am currently reading The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson for the Literature by Women board.  It is my favorite "ghost" story and I would encourage anyone who likes a good haunted house book to join us in July.

Anyways, onto the correct genre.  I am starting

 

A Lick of Frost (Meredith Gentry Series #6) 

 

Can't wait...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now ya'll need to stop posting all these great books (like the Zodiac Series) cuz I am just going to add them to by TBR pile and I am running out of money. Geez.


Just remember Angel when you turn to a life of crime, only rob book stores ;-)

Just got Black And White by Jackie Kessler to read.  So I'm putting everything else on hold to read that one.  Just finished Darkness Calls last night.  About halfway though The Wild Road by Marjorie M. Liu but will finish it after Jackie's book since I don't have much time to read it because I borrowed it from a friend.

I reread Christine Feehan and Jacqulyn Frank books along with their new ones over the holiday.

 

Now it's time to start The Iron Hunt.   Everyone has raved about this series and I'm hoping it lives up the the hype.  :smileyhappy:

All done Darkness Calls...fabulous book!  Lots of stuff happening from beginning to end and never lets up.  Looking forward to the next one.

 

Now I'm onto Street Magic by Caitlin Kittredge.  :-)

 

...oh and I was in the local Wal-Mart...picked up the Huntress novella with stories from Christine Warren, Marjorie M. Liu, Caitline K and Jenna Maclaine!  Also picked up Breath of Fire by Tammy Kane...its about dragons and sounded interesting!

Vampire Academy (Vampire Academy Series #1) 

 

So far so good, I like the writing, the characters seem interesting and the humour is present, so it's all good.

Color of Magic (Discworld Series) 

 

You won't find many things funnier then these series, all 36 of the books are a laugh riot, not so many vampires as you'd probablly like but some of the books have a lot of vampires as well.

Re: What are you currently reading?

From the Library I got Skin Trade by Laurell K. Hamilton which I just couldn't put down till I finished it.  Also from the library I got Hidden Currents by Christine Feehan, Skinwalker by Faith Hunter, Dying Bites by DD Barant.  I think I'm going to read Skinwalker and then Dying Bites and then Hidden Currents.

Carol,

 

I'm only 20 pages into the book so far but I agree that it is going to be awesome.  I had a family thing tonight and so have not been able to read as much as I would like but it has definitely got me hooked.

Re: What are you currently reading?

OK, finished the last book White Witch, Black Curse of the Rachel Morgan series last week and I miss it already. This series I could read forever! I can't wait for more! I loved them all! I finished Guilty Pleasures last night from the Anite Blake series and I am going to pick up book two and three today! So far it is good the zombie raising and ghouls are a new twist I haven't read about before. 

And I don't understand why I sleep all day and I start to complain that theres no rain...and all I can do is read a book to stay awake... and rips my life away but it's a great escape. Escape. Escape. Escape... (No Rain, Blind Melon)

Re: What are you currently reading?

Phyllis I'm so jealous!!!  Can't wait for the next JF book, DFAEG!  :-D

 

So I decided on Blood Magic by Jennifer Lyons...so far so good!  I also picked up Skinwalker by Faith Hunter...wow, it sounds really good.  Think its next on my TBR pile, then I'll read Dying Bites.  All my releases should be out by then (July 28)!  LOL

That's good to know!  I've got MJD's whole Betsy series...just haven't read them yet.  Story of my life, LOL!

 

So I think that the books by Kathy Love sound good & funny - the Young Brothers Series...starts with Fangs for the Memories.  :-)  I also think that Stephanie Rowe, Katie MacAlister and Kimberley Raye (Dead end dating series) have some funny books out as well.

Right now I am rereading Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. Im trying to save all my new releases for my trip next month, and I like to reread books right before I go see the movie.
