Feeling chatty?

Welcome to my blog! Pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and read what's on my mind. I've a vicious sense of humor, an apprecation for romance and a mad addiction to writing.

I'm reading "Tie Me Up, Tie Me Down" an anthology by Sherrilyn Kenyon, Melanie George & Jaid Black. Sherrilyn Kenyon's story was first and a very good one, I'm just starting on Melanie George's story.

I just finished (ie, last night at 11:30pm) Suzanne Brockmann's Force of Nature #11 in her Troubleshooters series.

I read this for a Romance reader group and this was my first experience reading her. I loved the characters but well I didn't love the book. Probably more to do with my tastes than with the writing style.

I love paranormals, I can escape RL. I just generally like to read contemporaries. There is enough, drugs, killing, explosions in our world how is reading about that an escape?

Look at the news. The first 10-15 minutes is who got killed, blown up, house destroyed, arrested, etc. No fun happy stories till just before the weather.

I don't want to read about that. Thus why I live in my own little paranormal/fantasy world. :)

So for those that like thrillers and mayhem, you'll probably enjoy the book. For those that don't well you'll like her characters and I'm still deciding whether or not I liked one of the characters enough to go look for his story in her back list.

I actually just finished a WONDERFUL book. It was called Breaking Free by Lauraine Snelling. I listened to most of it on audio while I was on a road trip and the narrator was wonderful. It is about a woman who is in prison and is selected to be part of a program for inmates rehabilitating race horses. There is a parallel story of a man with a son who is in a wheel chair with spina bifita who also learns to ride a horse. As you can guess, the boy makes a strong connection to Breaking Free, the horse our heroine is rehabing. She and the horse go to live with the boy and his father. There is a touch of romance near the end, but it is really all about relationships and finding a way to face life and move on.

Last night I finished a non-historical, non-celtic- (if you can beleive that Sky!) book called the Penny Tree. This book was a wonderful read, took me on a journey of emotions that I truly didn't expect. It was about real life and the ups and downs everyone goes through. It was fun, witty, and I enjoyed it! The author is Holly Kennedy and its just as wonderful as her other two books, 'The Tin Box, and the Silver compass.' I could see this one being made into a movie.

Hi Sky,
I'm another fan of Christine Feehan, I think I'll reread her books while waiting for Dark Curse in September. Right now I'm reading Caressed by Ice by Nalini Singh, the third book in her fantastic Psy-Changeling world. I strongly recommend the series, and a funny thing on the cover: "I love this book!"-Christine Feehan!

I recently finished Jessica Andersen's Night Keepers. It is great.

I've just finished reading Jasmine Galenorn. I enjoyed it and thought she took it in a couple of surprising directions that I hadn't expected. And I also just finished Sam's Creed by Sarah McCarty. Not my favourite of her books, I felt it was a little too slow paced, but I quite enjoyed the characterisations.

I'm reading "The Accidental Demon Slayer" by Angie Fox. It's a light-hearted paranormal romance, complete with geriatric biker witches and a talking dog. It's very fun!

Jane said...

I'm reading "Dance With Deception" by Tracy Goodwin.

Estella said...

I am reading No One Lives Forever by Jordan Dane.

I just finished reading The Shack by William P. Young and loved it. There's so much controversy surrounding it, so perhaps that's why I decided to read it. ;)

Recent reads also include eat, pray, love by Elizabeth Gilbert as well as Everyday Sacred by Sue Bender.

But I really think I need to broaden my horizons & read some more fiction!

I've read "Dark Magic" by Christine Feehan and loved it. Its one of my favorites of the series.
Right now I'm finishing up "Pleasure Unbound" by Larissa Ione. Another dark, sizzling, paranormal book that I just discovered. I was hooked by chapter two and will definitely be watching for the rest of these books. I'd really recommend looking into this book.

I just finished reading Leader of the Pack by Leeann Phoenix which was awesome. You can get it at Excessica.com in download. I highly recommend it. It is a shifter story and you really get caught up in the story.

I love Christine Feehan's books as well and can't wait to get her newest one. I am debating between starting "New World" by CS Chatterley or The Pridelands 4: Griffin's Joy by Jade Buchanan...it is a tough choice.

Five minutes ago I finished The Darkest Night by Gena Showalter and now I am moving on to The Darkest Kiss. I really enjoyed Night and hope to finish Kiss by the time Acheron arrives!
