My To Be Read Pile….

…oh. It gives me zee tingles.

 

Missing is the Prince of Fire, by Linda Winstead Jones (it was on my coffee table when I took the picture).

As you can see, there is lots of romance in my pile right now. I’m on a romance kick at the moment. Normally you would see lots more fantasy and less romance. I think because I write it, it kinda feels like work to read it. But right now I’m craving it. I picked up Venetia, by Georgette Heyer because it’s supposed to be a classic and I’ve seen it raved so often I finally had to give in. Same with Lord of Scoundrels, by Loretta Chase.

I joined Shelfari yesterday after being flooded with invites from other people who did. So if you want to friend me, go ahead.

I uploaded my TBR list there, if you want to look, plus a few other books I’m rereading, or just are perpetually in my pile. I think I could get down with Shelfari. Seems cool. However I couldn’t find Magic Lost, Trouble Found, by Lisa Shearin on there to add to my shelf. *grumble* Nor could I find The Eternal Rose, by Gail Dayton, but maybe that’s because the book isn’t out yet.

Now for another edition of books I have read lately…..

 

The Vampire Queen’s Servant, by Joey Hill

I liked it. Very dark and not for the faint of heart. Deliciously dark, in fact. There were a couple scenes that made me cringe, no doubt. I’m intrigued by the characters and definitely by their motivations. I want to know more, so I’ll be eagerly awaiting the next book. I’m a Joey Hill fan from way back, so I snatched this book right away.

 

 

Taking Chase, By Lauren Dane

Yes, Lauren is a friend, but that doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy her writing too. This was actually a reread. I liked it as much the second time as I did the first time. Cassie Gambol is a great heroine and enjoyed her story very much. As an aside, from a distance, the man on the cover looks like Nicholas Cage.

Prince of Magic, by Linda Winstead Jones

I rarely will buy a book for its cover. I believe what my mama taught me about judging things that way. But when I saw this one, I wanted to lick it. This cover has a hawt man on it. Yum. That coupled with the fact its an historical fantasy romance (love!), made me buy it. It’s the first time I’ve read anything by this author. I loved it! The hero, Sian, lives up to the cover. I loved his character. I also very much enjoyed Ariana, the heroine. So, anyway, hooked on the series now.

  1. Anya,

    I hope you enjoy Magic Lost, Trouble Found. After you’ve read it, send me an email and let me know what you think. ; ) BTW — On my blog I’ll be regularly posting “outtakes” from MLTF — scenes and chapters that I loved, but just didn’t fit in the final version.

    Take care!
    Lisa


  2. Thanks for the sneak-peek at your TBR pile. It’s always interesting to see what people are going to read/ try new (and sometimes I come across books I haven’t heard of, so there are new ones for me to try too!)

    Thank you also for the copy of Witch Fire and the Ellora’s Cave cards – they arrived yesterday. I’m looking forward to reading WF at the weekend.

    Have a good weekend,

    Cheers,
    Merry
