Some Really Great Reads

I'm spending the summer catching up on my To Be Read pile. There are a lot of good books out there and I'd like to suggest some really fantastic books I have just finished reading.

Dark Demon: This is a great book by Christine Feehan. It's the most recent in her Carpathian series. I haven't read any other Carpathian novels she has done. But this one was so good I couldn't put it down. I was up all night reading it and now I have to read all the previous books in this series.

Bitten & Smitten: This is a hilarious vampire book by Michelle Rowen. I laughed so hard when I read this. It's a great book. And it's the first in what looks to be a new series. She's doing a sequel for next year.

Even Vampires Get The Blues: This is another hilarious vampire book by Katie MacAlister. Yes I know all 3 books are vamp stories, but they are really good vamp stories. In this book my favorite character is Clare who has a serious case of denial. Clare is the best friend and cousin of the heroine of the story and she is in serious denial when it comes to being a fairy.

Hello Gorgeous: This is not a vamp book so there.:-) This book by Mary Janice Davidson is about a cyborg hairdresser. It's the first in her cyborg series. She just released the sequel so that should tell you how behind I have been in my reading lately. But this book is extremely funny.

I have plenty more books in my To Be Read pile. But I also have some books that are not out yet that I am so looking forward to. Here is just a couple of not yet released that I can hardly wait for.

Playing With Fire: This is by Gena Showalter and it looks like it is gonna be fantastic. It's about a woman who is given superpowers and now the government wants her dead. This is due out in September of this year.

The Nymph King: This is also by Gena Showalter and is the next in her wonderful Atlantis series which I just love. Unfortunately, it doesn't come out until next year. WAHHHH!!!!

The Circle Trilogy: This is three books by Nora Roberts that will be coming out once a month in September, October and November of this year. It deals with a war between the Celtic goddess Rhiannon and the vampire queen Lilith. Rhiannnon assembles a team of 6 special people to help her defeat the evil queen.

The Eyes Of The Crow: This is the first book by Jeri Smith-Ready and will be out November of this year. I have been looking forward to this book since February. I can't wait. It's being published by Luna Books.

Divine By Choice: This book by P.C. Cast has been a long time coming. It is the long-awaited sequel to Goddess By Mistake. In September of this year, Luna Books will re-release Goddess By Mistake as Divine By Mistake. And then in December of this year, they will finally release Divine By Choice. All I can say is about time.:-)

Second Wave: This is a sequel to Anne McCaffrey's first book about the children of Acorna. Acorna is another popular series by McCaffrey. This book comes out this fall and I can't wait. Go Unicorn girls.:-)

I think that's plenty for now. I am including a pic of Eyes Of The Crow though because the cover really is spectacular. A very beautiful and haunting picture. Also, I am putting up a pic of the cover of Playing With Fire which is also stunning. If you want to see a larger version of the covers, click on the thumbnails. So, are there any good books you have been reading that I might wanna check out? Let me know. And happy reading.

Hey, Kathy. This is Catie Murphy, aka C.E., author of Thunderbird Falls. I was catching up on some old email and saw one where P.C. Cast had forwarded your comment on her blog about illegal ARCs of THUNDERBIRD being sold on ebay, and you and your mom's outrage over the whole thing.

I just wanted to say thank you for both your outrage, which is heart-warming to a writer, and for going to the trouble of buying a legal copy of the book as well. Many people wouldn't bother. It's much appreciated!

We were happy to do it. We did get a legal copy of the book and my mom read it. She loved it. It's in my To Be Read pile which I am spending the summer catching up on. :-)

I'm insanely envious over your summer of reading. Your blog looks like you're enjoying it enormously! I hope you like Thunderbird, too! :)
