  1. The last thing I read was for a class, but I really enjoyed it. “The Youngest Doll” by Rosario Ferre.

  2. Not a book, exactly, but I spent most of the week catching up on Fables, which is a fantastic comic book/graphic novel series for anyone who likes modern retellings of fairy tales! I’m so addicted that I’m half tempted to finally make a pull list at my local comic book store.

  3. Rough, Raw and Ready by Lorelei James. Cowboys yum! I also read Riding Temptations by Jaci Burton. Bad boys on bikes:mrgreen:. lol Both of these books were great!

    Thank you for the contest!

  37. I recently finished reading “Castle of the Wolf” by Sandra Schwab. It’s one of my favorite books now. It’s a paranormal (obviously by the title… hehe) but it’s a different type of paranormal then what you think… I guess you’ll just have to read it to find out… :grin: I’m currently in the process of reading “Chasing Midnight” by Susan Krinard but I really have enjoyed it so far…

  38. I am looking forward to “Only Pleasure ” by Lora Leigh.

  44. Jessica Kennedy — I tried to comment on your blog, but it REALLY doesn’t want to let me. In any case, THANK YOU so much for your reviews of Witch Fire and Witch Blood. I really appreciate that you took the time to write them up and I’m glad you enjoyed the books. :)

    Jackie — LOVE the Gardella series. Can’t wait for the next installment. They have beautiful covers as well as being great books.

    I’m picking up some new ones for my TRB list, all. :)

  45. I’m partway through Elizabeth Hoyt’s latest–To Seduce a Sinner. Yum! I generally try to avoid starting a series until I’ve got all the books in it, but I couldn’t help myself… Pathetically, I’ve no self-control.

  46. I just finished Maya Banks “Be With Me”.
    I loved it and can’t wait to see what she
    does next. I’m looking forward to JR Wards
    Story in a new anthlogy.
    Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate.

  47. Hihi!

    I am really looking forward to buying a few books this holiday season:

    *) Dead After Dark (Anthology)
    *) Murder Game – Christine Feehan’s Ghostwalker series, yay I have been waiting for this book for ages!
    *) Swallowing Darkness – Laurell Hamilton’s new Merry Gentry book
    *) Veil of Midnight – Lara Adrian

    I just finished reading S. Kenyon’s new book – One Silent Night. I liked this book, but felt cheated when I read it because it was so short and the print was soooooo large! Plus I would have liked to see more interaction between Stryker and his lady love . . .


  48. Currently reading Wanderlust and then Dragon Master by Allyson James. The list of books that I want to get is way too long. The family knows to get me book gift cards for Christmas and birthdays.

  49. I recently discovered Charlaine Harris’s Lily Bard (Shakespeare) series and am really enjoying them. For December, I admit it, I’m a holiday anthology slut. I have about three on hand (I’m Your Santa, Snowy Night with a Stranger, and A Blazing Little Christmas), two shipping to me (one w/Lori Foster and one w/Stephanie Laurens), and several I’ll probably re-read my favorite stories from to get me in the holiday spirit. :wink:

  50. Be With Me by Maya Banks is on top of my shopping list. A couple of people have posted here with rave reviews for it.

    And thanks Anya for starting this post, it’s given me some great leads for what other books I should be checking out.

  51. I’m currently reading “Deadly Night” by Heather Graham and I’m enjoying it.

    I’m looking forward to reading these books:

    1. Dead After Dark (Sherrilyn Kenyon/J.R. Ward)
    2. Murder Game (Christine Feehan)
    3. One Silent Night (Sherrilyn Kenyon)
    4. Swallowing Darkness (Laurell Hamilton)
    5. Veil of Midnight (Lara Adrian)

  52. Just last night finished an ARC of “New Blood” by Gail Dayton – steampunk – fast read, and I loved it. Waiting for the latest Dresden release and Sookie Stackhouse, too. Oh, and Lick of Frost, as well…the list is endless!
    Happy Friday, all!

  53. one silent night by sk
    blood lines and night season by Eileen Wilkes
    all these are very good.

  54. I’ve pre-ordered a $19.95 (AU) paperback for my sister. Don’t want to say which book it is, just in case she stumbles around the Web and finds out ;-)

    When I’ve finished buying presents for my family, if I’ve got any money left, I especially want to buy Marianne Mancusi’s Razor Girl, Liz Maverick’s Irreversible and A. J. Menden’s Phenomenal Girl 5.

    Have a lovely day! :smile:

  55. I am reading J.R. Ward right now and before that I was reading Lora Leigh.

    I am really looking forward to Jeaniene Frost’s new book and my goodness the list of books that I want to buy is a mile long.

    My TBR pile is filled with great books like A Chosen Sin, Richelle Mead’s newest Vampire Academy book and many many more.

  56. Lately I’ve been reading a lot of YA (mostly for review purposes), but one of them was absolutely fantastic–AN UNLIKELY FRIENDSHIP: A NOVEL OF MARY TODD LINCOLN AND ELIZABETH KECKLER. I’ve also been working through Kresley Cole’s “immortals After Dark” series. I’m loving WICKED DEEDS ON A WINTER’S NIGHT!

  57. This isnt easy cause I have read some really good books here lately. Laurell K Hamilton’s new release Swallowing Darkness, One Silent Night by Sherrilyn Kenyon, Cat of a Different Color by Dana Marie Bell, Covenant in Blood by Ariel Tachna, to name a few.

  58. I just finished reading Be With Me by Maya Banks and I loved it. I enjoy how she draws you into her story for hours of entertainment. My next story to read is Down in Texas by Delilah Devlin.

  59. I just finished reading “The King of Sword and Sky” by CL Wilson. Its the third part of her Tairen series and just keeps getting better. I’m dying for the next book as this book ended with another cliffhanger. Still, one heck of a wonderful read!

  60. I’m really looking forward to Stranger by Megan Hart in January. Right now I’m on the second of Lauren Dane’s Chase brothers books, Taking Chase. Loved Giving Chase and loving Taking Chase

  61. I just finished Snowbound by Larissa Ione and it was really good. Characters you can identify with.

    I want Be With Me by Maya Banks
    I’m waiting for Undercover, Stranger by Megan Hart, Murder Game by Christine Feehan and Only Pleasure by Lora Leigh.

    There are many more but I’d end up typing all day.

  62. The Marriage Miracle by Liz Fielding – I liked it as it had a heroine in a wheelchair and I don’t find that kind of book often enough.

  63. Just finished reading Lora Leigh’s Mercury’s War. Wow, it was great.

  64. I just finished Blackmailed by Annemarie McKenna and the whole Black Dagger Brotherhood series.

    I’m waiting for Megan Hart’s books, Stranger and Deeper

  65. Oh.. I haven’t had a chance to think about books I want to buy this holiday season. I’m hoping things will calm to dull roar to take a peek at what I need to add to my growing pile of TBR.

    Lots of books coming out next year that I can’t wait for. In January .. I’m pouncing on Jessica Andersen’s next book Dawnkeepers.
