Friday Book Club

First, sharing a nice review of Archangel's Kiss from Karla of Night Owl Romance:
"...I could not put this book down and continued to read well into the night. I can't say enough about this book and the characters..."

Now, onto the book club! What have you all been reading and loving this week?


Natasha said...

Just the Sexiest Man Alive by Julie James. This was so so good!! I was sad that it ended. Now I'm reading Practice Makes Perfect. Love the beginning!

Courtney said...

I have been reading and loving Magic Bites and Magic Burns by the inestimable Ilona Andrews. They've been in my TBR for months, but what tipped the scale was when the book money went to holiday shopping and I couldn't buy new books.

Why oh why did I take so long to read about Kate Daniels and her magical adventures? The worldbuilding alone makes me lightneaded with happiness. Now I must seek out Magic Strikes and then I can be antsy for May when Magic Bleeds comes out.

Oy vey, another series to follow. I'm screwed, but at least I'll be in a wonderful romance coma when I go. :)

Charles said...

Mercury's war by Lora Leigh really good book about a breed that thought he had lost his animal and his mate!! It's a must read (:

Willa said...

I am knee deep in murders and strange going ons in Kylie Brant's Waking Nightmare. Lots of police procedure but it is gripping and a great romance developing.

Got the next 2 in the series to look forward to - Waking Evil & Waking the Dead. Fab.

Patty said...

I've just started Meljean Brook's Guardians series. It's just as good as everyone has said. I don't have enough hours in my day to read as much as I would like. I have a small problem with needing to work, take care of my family, and sleep! :)

Diane said...

early dawn by Catherine Anderson, I can always depend on her for good books.

Nalini Singh said...

Natasha - I love her books!

Courtney - isn't the series amazing! I had a chance to read Magic Bleeds early and I have to say is FABULOUS!!!!

Charles - I really enjoyed Mercury's story as well. One of my favorites in the series.

Willa / Dianae - I haven't read those. They sound good.

Patty - LOL! Meljean is one of my favorite readers - surely you can skip sleep ;-)

Ang from Oz said...

Yes who needs to sleep, when there is so many great books to be reading? I am reading Street Game by the fabulous Christine Feehan.
My TBR pile is huge after receiving so many great books for Xmas, and those I got while on holidays.. Some include

Kitty and the Midnight Hour - Carrie Vaughn
Witch Blood - Anya Bast
Kissing Frogs - Laura Marie Altom
Touch the Dark - Karen Chance
Heart of Darkness Anthology
Bone Magic - Yasmine Galenorn

So little time - so many books to read! ;)

Fuarie Ai said...

Just finished reading Marked from the house of night series by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast. Now I have moved on to Marked then I will start up my drizzt books again until feb when nalini's next book comes out right?

Patty said...

Nalini, unfortunately, I am skipping sleep! It's a very bad habit, but one my family is well used to. Meljean's books were a Christmas gift. I also got all of Meredith Duran's books and the 1st of Jeanine Frost's Night Huntress books. I finished Halfway to the Grave while on Christmas break and I'm totally hooked on Cat and Bones. So many books and so little time! Then there are way too many books coming out the 1st week of February, which is my birthday week. Argh. The TBR pile is growing into my retirement years! LOL

parsa said...

Just finished the 2 Chicagoland Vampire books by Chloe Neill and can't wait till the 3rd book comes out. Its quite different from all the usual vampire/paranormal books.

ShellBell said...

This week I read Lauren Dane's Coming Undone. Loved it - couldn't put it down and didn't finish it until 2:30 in the morning.

Hoping to start CL Wilson's Queen of Song and Souls this weekend

Barbarita V said...

Shades of Midnight by Lara Adrian. It's very good. I highly recomended.

Anneela said...

I'm re-reading Almost Heaven by Judith McNaught and then I'm moving on to Sherrilyn Kenyon's Kiss of the Night from the Dark-Hunter Series

Anonymous said...

I just finished the Charles Finch msytery novels (with a romantic undertone going one) that were just fabulous.

I am new to your work and paranormal fiction in general, so will probably be taking more advice than giving. However, I just wanted to say that I appreciate this "Friday Book Club" - what a wonderful way to find new things to read.

Currently reading Caressed by Ice.

Spav said...

I read Blood Cross by Faith Hunter. I loved it! Today I'm starting with the Hunger Games.

orannia said...

Snap Courtney! I finished Magic Burns last week and have been hanging out for Magic Strikes (the downside to borrowing books form the library is waiting for an available copy :)

I also read Second Chance Pass (the fifth book in Robyn Carr's Virgin River series). It was full of babies IMO :) Now I'm reading manga and looking forward to readimg Sarah Monette's Corambis!

Varsha said...

Flirting Series by Suzanne Enoch. Loving it!!! its 12 midnight in US and am going back to reading :D

Rahaf said...

First of all, thanks to all of you who recommended the Black Jewel Trilogy by Ann Bishop. I had seen the recommendations a few time but for some reason I always hesitated. WELL, I'm SO glad that I picked them up! It was a little darker then I was used to, but wow, I read the entire trilogy on a transatlantic flight. :)

I read Vision in White by Nora Roberts...blah...I am a HUGE NR fan and this was totally underwhelming. I am not planning on reading anything else in this series.

I'm picking up Kylie Brant books, and we'll report back soon. :)

Annie said...

Just read Paradise by Judith McNaught. She's one of my favorite authors besides NS. Kept re-reading selected passages from Paradise. Love the book!!!!
