Reviews & Books

Some good news to start the day - Mine to Possess got a Desert Isle Keeper review from AAR!!!! Clay and Tally's book also got an awesome review from Once Upon A Romance! Woohoo! :-)

Today's busy, busy, so I'm turning the blog over to you guys - how about comments on some great books you've read (recently or in the past), and what you liked about them?

Congratulations Nalini!

Ohhh, where to start....I'm not going to mention your books Nalini, because that is a given :)

I absolutely LOVE the Black Jewel trilogy by Anne Bishop. I've recommended (or pimped :) them to three people (two work colleagues and one of the librarian at my local library) and they all LOVED the series. I can't wait for Tangled Webs next month.

I also discovered Patricia Briggs' Mercy Thompson series last month (the first is Moon Called). Fantastic books - the words just flow off of the page! Plus, I like that the heroine isn't all knowing/super powerful/drop dead gorgeous.

Thirdly, the Administration series by Manna Francis. The second book is due out shortly and I can't wait. They are VERY dark and have some unusual but oddly compelling characters. On, and the two main characters are both male. Very different from what I've read before and no doubt not everyone's cup of tea, but fascinating.

PS Nalini, you sound busy. I hope you have a very productive day :) I WILL get to writing you a big email about MTP.

PPS Thank you for attempting to post the chat transcript. I can't wait to read it!

Congrats Nalini, its well deserved.

Grimspace by Ann Aguirre is a really awesome read. I'd highly recommend it.

Well, your books--just gulped down the four pretty much without pause this past week or so. Lurve them all, and can't wait for Dorian.

Last night, in lieu of sleep, I read Strangers in Death. Love, love, love, how all the characters continue to grow.

Amazing books I have had in my keeper shelves for ages: Always to Remember by Lorraine Heath, Silver Lining by Maggie Osborne, and Morning Glory by LaVyrle Spencer. In all three, the characters just grab you by the heart and won't let go.

Congrats!

I'm actually reading Mine to Possess currently! I started reading it last night. Just about 100 more pages to read. It's great. But I say that about all your books. :)

As for what I've been reading recently... I finished the Chandler brothers series by Carly Philips. I loved all 3 books. After I finish your book, I'm gonna finish reading Rachel Gibson's series that links a group of female author friends. Her current one is Tangled Up In You. The last book in that series will come out in May, so I'm looking forward to it.

Hmm... and I can never go wrong with Gena Showalter, Susan Mallery, Susan Donovan, Kresley Cole, Jennifer Crusie, Alyssa Day, etc. I have way too many favorite authors. lol

I love Lyndsay Sands's Argeneau vampire series. I gobbled down the latest book _Vampire, Interrupted_ last night. Great fun and I really recommend the series.

Next week the Shifters anthology with stories by Angela Knight, Lora Leigh, Alyssa Day and Virginia Kantra will be on sale and I know I'll gobble that up too. The first three writers are must-gets for me.

I'm also waiting for Lisa Shearin's Armed and Magical which comes out in April. Fantasy adventure with some fun romantic underpinnings...

In June Christine Warren's Walk on the Wild Side comes out. Yum!

Then in July, Patricia Briggs' Cry Wolf comes out.

All these books and others will help me survive until HtP comes out!

Hi
congrats on the reviews, Nalini! I think it must be amazing to read what all the people are thinking of your books!
I'm reading a vampire book this week. It's called "Twilight" by Stephenie Meyer. It's a book for young people but very well written and amusing.

You deserve it, Nalini, congratulations!

Congrats on the good reviews, Nalini :) I specially liked Keisha´s review...

Regarding books, I haven´t read anything interesting lately, I´ve reasearching for my thesis. On the other hand, I saw "Stardust", a surprisingly good fantasy film for teens that I happened to like :)

I just discovered the joys of Patricia Briggs. I managed to read the three Mercy Thompson books in about a six day period of time.

I can't wait for Tangled Webs either...I've been reading like a maniac lately...stupid stress.

Nalini! I'm just posting again. lol

I finished your book last night, and it was fabulous! I swear, it seems like with each book, this series just keeps getting better and better! And wow at the preview for Hostage to Pleasure! I knew it that Dorian and Ashaya would hook up! You could tell when I think it was Clay(?) who noticed Dorian seemed smitten over her in MtP. Out of curiosity, I was looking at your upcoming psy/changeling series release dates on your site, and I noticed “Stroke of Enticement”. Which characters are involved in that book?

Nalini Singh said...

OMG, so man great books!! (I need to learn to speed read...but would it be as much fun???)

Abby, it's Zach's story. Who is Zach? He's mentioned in MtP ;)
