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.
