Reading the Hathaway series by Lisa Kleypas. Right now on the third book (Poppy's story). This is such a great series!!! Why didn't I read it before!? Right now everything that gets in the way of my reading is an inconvenience....work, food, sleep lol!
I haven't been so engrossed in a story in a long time. Love it!!

The first book by Lisa Kleypas that I read was from the Wallflower series. I admit, I didn't like it that much. I didn't get Sebastian's appeal to the masses. Then I read Derek Craven's story and LOOOOVED him! So I picked up the Hathaway series. Now I totally get what the fuss is all about! lol

Nalini Singh said...

Natasha - I'm totally hanging out for the next Hathaway book!

Christina said...

I decided instead of rereading, to catch up on my TBR pile and finally read my copy of Tempted by the Casts. It was so good up until the end when they killed Heath! I don't know if I want to read Burned just yet, I feel as if I am still in mourning :( so I think I will go back to my original plan and reread to cheer myself up. Probably one of Gena's Lords books since the next one comes out next week (yay!)

I love Lisa Kleypas's books. The last book (Poppy and Harry) was so romantic. Eagerly waiting for Leo and Marks. Love him.

Reading Spirit Bound by Richelle Mead.

Diane said...

Reading a "nice" author: Diana Palme's new release Dangerous. I've been reading her for the last 40 years almost and she's is simply a pleasant read to me.

khardeen said...

Read Richelle Mead's Spirit Bound earlier this week. It was good.

Waiting for Gena Showalter's Darkest Passion next week.

Ang from Oz said...

I am hooked on the Atlantis Series from Alyssa Day. Just bought the last 3 in the series and hope to get started on them this week. Looking forward to new releases arriving soon from Charlaine Harris and Gena Showalter.

Tracy said...

I read Magic Bleeds by Ilona Andrews. It was really good. I will be reading The Darkest Passion by Gena Showalter and Moon Sworn by Keri Artur just as soon as I can get my hands on them.

Tlee said...

Back to basics for me Sookie Stackhouse series.. While waiting for TrueBlood season 3 to come back on.

Jenny Schwartzberg said...

I love Lisa Kleypas too! Yesterday I finished reading PC Hodgell's the God Stalker Chronicles, which contains her first two books, God Stalk and Dark of the Moon. I read and loved them years ago and loved them again this time. Looking forward to relocating and reading the rest of her books. I read Candace Camp's A Lady Never Tells today and am debating what to read next...

Dani said...

I'm reading the first trilogy by Tessa Dare: Goddess of the Hunt, Surrender of a Siren and A Lady of Persuasion. Great books, her new series - The Stud Club - goes out next week. She did a book video for the new series with her kids dolls, It's in her web site and it's just fantastic. You should all check it out!

Christina T said...

I am going to start Spirit Bound by Richelle Mead. I love this series. Rose kicks a**!

orannia said...

I finished Lover Mine (JR Ward) earlier this week. I enjoyed it far more than it's predecessor (Lover Avenged), which drove me nuts :)

Now I'm reading PJ Tracy's latest installment in the Monkeewrench series - Shoot to Thrill! Great banter!

Cherry said...

I'm in that group of people waiting for the next Lords book.

Bella said...

just finished Jeaniene Frost's Night Huntress book 1 and I can't believe I took so long to pick it up! Cant wait to get book 2 on Saturday. Today I'm reading Blaze of Memory,lol
I took a break after reading like 4 of the series books in a row last month, but saw the cover for Play of Passion and got excited and decided I had to be ready for Bonds of Justice in July too :D

Bella said...

@Nalini- I haven't read any of Lisa Kleypas yet; what book would you suggest I start out with?

saiena said...

I adore Lisa Kleypas, though I'm going to have to do some serious digging to get my hands on the next two Hathaways, since the UK versions don't come out until the end of the year :0! Much as I want to read Leo and Kat's story, it's Bea's I'm dying for. I love her (and Dodger the ferret).

At the moment I'm rereading a certain Psy/Changeling series. Don't know if any of you have heard of it...?

Veronika said...

I read Lover Mine in one go.. while husband did a nightshift *grin*, loving it, waiting for this series to continue (but when???)
waiting (almost) paitently for the next Nalini-Book (3 already preordered on Amazon- so I cant miss a date ;) )and am also waiting for Lisa Kleypas´ books to finally come out- love the Hathaways!!
Does anyone know "Dragon actually" ? I´m so tempted and have a month to fill before "my next book" arrives!!! I´m currently at home (due to pregnancy not allowed to work in ICU)..... so much time....

Greetings from Austria
Veronika

Maria said...

I found Her Royal Spyness by Rhys Bowen. The series is mystery but there is a love interest. What I loved about it was how checky it was. I can't get enough of the British humor and attitude. Georgie as the heroine, was delightfully resourceful and I will have to read the rest of the series.

I'm listening to The Birth Order Book by Dr. Kevin Leman on my commute. Very interesting... I'm going to give it to my mother so that we can argue/discuss it.

liz said...

Just read moon called and blood bound,next on the list is iron kissed but I am STILL waiting for lions heat, it should be here really soon-I hope!!!:)

Elspeth Cross said...

I'm reading "Death Blows" by Canadian DD Barant, the second of the Bloodhound series. It's the first urban fantasy series I've really loved. The premise is unique (I've never come across a similar AU), deeply disturbing and utterly addictive.

ladyacct said...

Reading Beast behaving Badly by Shelley Laurenston and Web of Lies by Jenifer Estep.....awesome

kylie said...

I'm trying to finish "Demon In Me" by Michelle Rowen before starting LJ McDonald's "Shattered Sylph."

Natasha said...

@Veronika - Do you mean Dragon Actually by G.A. Aiken/Shelly Laurenston? If yes, then yeah I've read that series! It's great! Honestly, for me that author can do no wrong. Love her writing! The banter between EVERYONE (not just the H/H) is lots of fun!

@ladyacct - Beast Behaving Badly is out already? wow! Totally lost track of time. I need to get my hands on a copy :)

@Bella - I haven't read much from Lisa Kleypas. But I would recommend starting with the Hathaway series.

LESantiago said...

Bella, I have read all 4 Night Huntress Books by Jeaniene Frost and LOVED Them!!! Can't wait until the 5th comes out in February.

Now I am in the middle of the Hollows Series by Kim Harrison. I just started When Darkness Comes by Alexandra Ivy.

Chelsea B. said...

I'm reading The Darkest Whisper by Gena Showalter! Love her Lords of the Underworld series!

Nalini Singh said...

@Bella - The Hathaways is a good series to start with. Or you could try the Wallflower books. Another fan favorite is Dreaming of You. I loved all of these.

She has a big backlist, so what I'd suggest is just going to her website and having a look through it to see what catches your eye. :-)

Dana said...

I'm reading Hunting Ground by Patricia Briggs. I really love her books. Next book will be Magic Bleeds by Ilona Andrews as soon as it is out (25th of May). I loooove the Kate Daniels-novels.

Cherry said...

@Dana: Mercy Thompson is one of my favorite series. Second favorite series

Cat R. said...

I'm more into sorting than reading--but I did have to reread the GH series since Ms. Singh finished Archangel's Consort! I'm going to be rereading the "Owl" trilogy in the Mercedes Lackey series since my daughter just found the missing third one. Thanks for the comments about the Lisa Kleypas & G.A. Aiken books, because I have those on the TBR pile, so I'll shuffle them to the top.

waka said...

I'm not reading anything at them moment because I'm too TICKED off. I tried to order Jennifer Estep's Bigtime series but it turns out there's this new funny thing out called "Required eBook Pricing".

Which basically means I'm out of luck even thinking of ordering ebooks because I'm from the wrong country to order from the US, the price has increased and the books aren't available anyway.

I choose to read ebooks because of their availability, price and ease of use and access but no more!

I will be stuffing my face with chocolate for the next 2 months instead.

I know exactly what you mean waka! I have been reading eBooks for over 3 years and the current issues are driving me mad. I have resorted to library books, and probably won't even bother buying the eBooks if/when they do become available for me to purchase from New Zealand. So far I have missed out on Sweet Temptation by Maya Banks, Atlantis Redeemed by Alyssa Day, Wild Fire by Christine Feehan, Seducing the Highlander by Emma Wildes, Men of Danger anthology.

Anyhoo! This week I have read and enjoyed Stormwalker by Allyson James (can't wait to read more in this series) and Lover Mine by JR Ward (was amazed to be able to buy the eBook through Amazon's Kindle store)

Melissa said...

Hi Nalini,
I just re-read two books by you-Mine to Posses(Clay) and Branded by Fire(Mercy). I'm about to re-read Caressed by Ice. I can't wait for Max's book!!

Veronika said...

Hello, an thank you for the feedback about the Dragon Series by GA Aiken- I´ve already ordered the first book- just one week to wait...
Bye Veronika

Roksana said...

I finished Lover Mine and Finally got Slave to Sensation, which I read in two days...IT WAS AWESOME!

Currently reading Spirit Bound (Great series).

I am waiting for Blaze of Memory from the library, but in the mean time I have other books to keep me occupied!
