What Are You Reading?

I was going to do a whole blog about the people trying to claim Obama isn’t a citizen, so therefore he can’t be president of the United States. But I decided against it because I knew it would only piss me off. *g*

Today is my aunt’s 82nd birthday. Happy Birthday, L. May you celebrate eighty more. πŸ™‚

Now, I’d like to know what everyone is reading with special emphasis on recommendations. I just finished Dark Challenge and Dark Fire by Christine Feehan. I’m almost done reading Dark Magic. I enjoyed Dark Fire so much that I may go back and read it again. So spill. Give me the names of those books you think would knock my socks off and tell me why you liked them so much. πŸ˜†

  2. Hey Jordan –

    I’m currently reading The Wallflower by Dana Marie Bell (e-book), The CEO’s Christmas Proposition by Merline Loveless, and Midnight Rising by Lara Adrian.

  3. Jordan:

    If you want to read a book that will knock your socks off – “A Mermaid’s Kiss”, by Joey Hill. It is one of my top picks this year. I should have a review up on my blog tomorrow if you are interested. IMHO (for what it’s worth) it is a treasure.

    I don’t know if you have an e-reader for your trip or if you are taking a laptop with you but a good e-book is “Eyes of Fire: The Mylari Chronicles Book 1”, by CJ England, it is an ‘Tolkienesque’ fantasy / erotic romance – a few of my online friends and I all enjoyed it. I haven’t gotten around to writing a review yet but hope too.

    I’m reading the same Merline Loveless book that Greta is (we belong to the same book club) and another, Harlequin Blaze book I’m going to start today is “Restless”, by Tori Carrington.

  4. Strongly recommend MAGIC TO THE BONE by Devon Monk. One of the best urban fantasy debuts I’ve ever read. πŸ™‚

  5. Greta, I love Lara Adrian’s stuff. πŸ™‚

  6. Lea, Joey is such a neat lady. A terrific talent. I’ll have to pick it up. Sounds like you have enough to keep you busy for a while. πŸ˜‰

  7. Karen, I’ve been wanting to pick up Devon’s book for a while. I read the first few pages and really liked it.

  8. Neil Gaiman’s The Graveyard Book rocks my socks. In a “ZOMG jealous” sort of way. :mrgreen: Also re-reading The Right to Write by Julia Cameron and loving it.

  9. Charli, It’s funny. I picked that up last night and read the opening page. Just the description of the knife rocked. Terrific stuff. πŸ™‚

  10. But I decided against it because I knew it would only piss me off. *g*

    Oh wth, get pissed off. I know I am. πŸ˜•
    Come now, folks. The uproar from the American people would amount to a revolution. The man won. Deal with it and give him a chance.

  11. Raine, I don’t–no strike that–I KNOW they aren’t thinking this through. I cannot even imagine how ugly this would turn if that happened. OMG!!!

  12. C.L. Wilson’s debut fantasy romance “Tairen Soul Series.”

    Lord of the Fading Lands
    Lady of Light and Shadow
    King of Sword and Sky
    Queen of Song and Souls (release 06/02/09)

    I love the courtship of Fey King Tairen Soul Rain and Celierian Ellie set in a backdrop of an upcoming war between the Fey and the Mages.

    Your soul calls out. Mine answers, beloved.

    I think that one line is the essence of a romance novel.

  13. Cassie, I have the first two books in C.L.’s series, but I haven’t read them yet. Have I mentioned my mountain range made up of TBR books? *g*

  14. Right now I am reading Lora Leigh’s Killer Secrets which is part of her Tempting Seals series. I am enjoying it and the series very much.

  15. Jordan, I refuse to count my TBR books. It’s just panic inducing, and I have plenty to be scared of as it is (see the political idiocy you are not blogging about)

    :sigh: People are, by and large, idiots and assholes.

  16. Lori, I have that one in my TBR pile. I really like Lora Leigh’s SEALs and her Breed series’.

  17. Azteclady, *ggg* Yes, it is frightening. Truly frightening. As if economic collapse wasn’t bad enough. Sigh. πŸ™„


  18. I think you should walk to your TBR pile, close your eyes, and reach. πŸ™‚

  19. Bernard, You’d have to send the rescue workers to get us out of the paperback avalanche. *ggg*

  20. Now I imagine I’ll get another pile of hateful junk mail from the Republican National Party, claiming our President Elect was born on, what, Mars? Sheesh.

    While I’m looking for a Ways to Deal with Pink Cover Shock and Depression book, I’ve been rereading Val McDermid’s The Grave Tattoo. I believe it’s out in paperback now, but I also spotted the hardcover in the $6.97 remaindered section at BAM. Wonderful book, amazing writing, and probably the best premise for a historical mystery I’ve read in years.

  21. Oh — and Happy Birthday, Jordan’s Auntie L. πŸ™‚

  22. Lynn, LOL! Be on the lookout. *g* He’d probably catch a break if he was from Mars. πŸ™„

    Wait, I have to put my sunglasses on. Okay, now let’s discuss the PINK book. πŸ˜‰ I’ll definitely check The Grave Tattoo out. Title is great.

  23. Okay, now let’s discuss the PINK book.

    Let’s not and just say we did. Ha.

  24. LOL, Lynn. I suppose we could do that. *g*

    Thanks for the B-day wishes.

  25. Hey Jordon,

    I just received the Google Alert about the above comment recommending The Mylari Chronicles: Eyes of Fire.

    I know this is late coming, but I wanted to thank Lea for recommending the book. It was the story that pushed me into publishing my work and is special in many ways to me.

    I hope that anyone else who gets it on Lea’s recommendation enjoys it as much as she and her friends did.

    I wish you all a happy Christmas and a blessed holiday season.

  26. oops, sorry about the misspelling of your name. 😳 I hate it when people do that to mine.

    Please forgive me!
