Re: What are you currently reading?

Ok, that's easy.  Let's put it this way.  The masked-psycho-killer is not the prey!!!

My question?

So, have we agreed on a side?  Who actually is the prey in this thing?

I highly recommend Encounter at North Road House.  When a masked, unbeatable psycho-killer enters a house to take more lives, the house that he enters is haunted by inhuman creatures and ghosts, who shut him in. 

 

The masked-psycho thought he was moving on another ordinary house - but what he enters into is a haunted realm.  The best thing about this book is who is the predator and who is the prey?  This one just came out and highly recommended.

North Road House Characteristics:
- North Road House ultimately hosts devious ghosts, scaly creatures, malicious spirits, esoteric phenomenon, unexplainable, merciless brutality on victims, and a wicked spirit man 
- North Road House is an absolute terror house.  Once a person or thing enters this house, there is absolutely no escape.
- North Road House is an inescapable domain filled with undescribable horror, in which there is no escape for victims, whether dead or alive, no matter if one thinks he or she escaped by running or moving to a location far away
 
The masked, faceless invincible killer's Characteristics:
- The masked, faceless killer uses physical killing force with a long blade
- Has impenetrable abilities where he virtually cannot be killed
- Has the ability to never allow his victims to hear him coming
- He is slightly capable of being somewhat supernatural in his movements.

Had a small breakdown/tantrum staring at my TBR pile last night trying to figure out what to read and planning how many books I can read before the 20th (payday).  All my spawn are seeing the dentist this week and the cost is cutting into my book buying budget.  (Darn monsters wanting human looking teeth) Have to wait for payday to buy the books I need for July.  Every time I see a comment about how wonderful Adrian Phoenix's Black Dust Mambo is I go into B & N withdrawal shakes.    I wonder if hubby will notice I have a problem if I start scouring the house for scrap metal to sell for books?  :smileytongue::smileyvery-happy::smileywink:


 

LOL, you are too funny!  I finally got the reasonining behind the name now.  :-)  LOL  My friend used to call her daughter TROLL since she was a little tiny baby.  It always made me laugh.  That's a good idea though, sell stuff so we can have money to buy books.  I think maybe I can get a good price for my daughter on the black market...she's a red head.  LMAO!!  She's 21 years old so I don't think she would be impressed, hahaha!

 

I can't seem to get to the TBR books I've had for over a year on my shelf...new releases of series's I've read keep coming out.  Maybe I need to stop reading new book 1's of a series?  But you know that's not going to happen.  Oh the dilema.....

 

 


 

Now see that's where you go wrong.:smileytongue: New releases go on the bottom or to the middle of the TBR que. I've got 5 authors I'll let jump line, but anything else is bedlam.:smileywink:

 


 

LOL, yeah like I would be able to do that...  I abolustely HAVE to read the new releases when they come out because I'm usually DYING to read them.  :-)


 

Good things come to those who wait. :smileytongue:Case in point. Not only did I read (while skipping spoilers) the thread first for this book. I also waited till the next in the series came out to buy it. So while I wait for my copy of

 

Blood Law  to get here. Expected arrival is monday at the earliest.

 

I get to finally sit down and enjoy the book that I allowed to mature in my TBR pile.

 

Rosemary and Rue  Ripping great book BTW. Waiting hasn't made it any less enjoyable. Even though I read 28 other books after I bought my copy, before I cracked it. And the second one is right there waiting for me.:smileywink:

 

 


 

 

 

 

Well...  :smileytongue:  :smileytongue:  :smileytongue: 

 

LOL

 

Yep mature adult, that's me!

Re: What are you currently reading?

I am right in the middle of White Witch, Black Curse, but I am thinking about going back and re-reading the short stories from the anthologies.  I didn't realize that this book would pull so heavily from them.  Harrison has definitely done enough so that I am not totally lost, but I think if I took a break and read the short stories I would have a more well rounded reading experience.  What do you the rest of you think?

While the short are not nessisary to understand the story. They are a nice enjoyable read.

Re: What are you currently reading?

Got a stack of new books yesterday, so I was totaly in heaven.  The first one I read was Magic Bleeds by Ilona Andrews.  I have been waitin forever to finally read this so I was really glad it did not disapoint.  I can't wait for the next one in the series and hopefully we will be meeting Roland sometime soom.  I really am looking forward to the final showdown.

 

 

The second book I read was one of my "this looks interesting" books.  I didn't do a whole lot of research into this one, but I liked the cover so I thru caution to the wind and bought it.  I really liked The Accidental Demon Slayer by Angie Fox.  It was a good book and while some parts of it seemed rather rushed, I did enjoy it. 

The Accidental Demon Slayer by Angie Fox: Book Cover

 

 

I think next up is going to be Silver Bourne by Patricia Briggs.  It has taken me forever to get this book so I am really looking forward to this next book in the Mercy Thompson series.

Re: What are you currently reading?

Just finishing 

Darkness Calls (Hunter Kiss Series #2). It's a great followup to the first book The Iron Hunt (Hunter Kiss Series #1). And, I've just received delivery confirmation of  the third book

A Wild Light (Hunter Kiss Series #3). This series rocks with lyrical prose, unbelievably imaginative segments (seamless integrated into the narrative), a unique creationist mythology, screen-worthy dialogue, a riveting conflict which envisions an apocalyptic onslaught of demons and intriguing characters which include the not-so-human demon hunting heroine, her 'light bringer' protohuman boyfriend, demons (the good, the not-so-good and the very bad) and avatar/energy beings who can become human and/or take on human form. If you want to read a series that offers the best of dark urban fantasy, then read this one.

Re: What are you currently reading?

Just finished:

Tracking the Tempest 

 

This book was great!  I liked it just as much as the first one.  I can't wait for the next book "Tempest's Legacy".  I think it is due out in Jan 2011. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Started reading:

The Touch of Twilight (Signs of the Zodiac Series #3) 

 

I really like this series.  It is dark and intriguing.  I like the different take on the magic and how its intigrated with the zodiac signs.  I had this series on my TBR pile for a while, I'm glad I finally started it. 

HELP! I've fallen and can't reach my book!!!!
