I'm reading the Girl who Played with Fire - Stieg Larsson. And was I the only person left in the world who didn't know Stieg died?! SO inconvenient for more books in the Millenium series...

michelle f said...

Eva said...

@Lucy: I enjoyed Larsson`s Millenium trilogy a lot. (Even the movies are great!)

Saskia said...

I read Deep Kiss of Winter (Immortals After Dark 8) by Kresley Cole and Gena Showalter but I only liked the story from Kresley Cole.
Now I´m reading Burning up again.

Mervi said...

I'm reading the Mercy Thompson books from the beginning and just got the newest "River Marked" in mail yesterday. Still two earlier books to finish before I get to read it. Am reading as fast as I can;-).

Congratulations to the lucky ARC winners!

Ang from Oz said...

No email for me either *sigh* congrats to the winners! It'll be a long wait for the rest of us! I've done almost no reading this week. But have plenty waiting for me so I'll need to do some catching up, River Marked first up on the list!

Steph said...

Where is my email? It must be some awful mistake. I hate to wait and I think that I've been very patient as I liked the idea of Hawke and Sienna since STS! Lots of spoilers and excerpts please.

Julia said...

I just heard that the waves of the tsunami in Japan could hit New Zealand as well! I hope all of you are alright!

Sarah Zott said...

OMG I won!!!!

I'm still hyperventilating! I'm so happy I feel like hugging strangers on the street.

I'm currently reading the Bridgerton series by Julia Quinn until my ARC will arrive. Since I'm living in Austria, Europe I think I'll have to be patient.

Thanks Nalini, this really made day/my entire week and probably my entire month

Oh my gosh I can't believe I've got an e-mail. That so made my day! *squee*

I really can't wait to read the book!

Thank you so much! :)

Anonymous said...

Omg I got an email!
WOW still can't believe its real hihi but I think I have to be patient as well since my book is also coming to Austria, very funny...

I'm currently rereading the psy/changelings series (again)

kylie said...

Congrats to those who got the magical email. Count me as one of the frowning faces without. This week I'm trying to catch up on the books that I have like two or three chapters to go but they fell on the wayside because I know the ending. Teaches me not to peek at the ending before I start a book.

liz said...

Congrats to the winners, I didn't get an email so hoping those reviews will go up really quickly :) I'm reading Venom by Jennifer Estap at the minute, it's not bad i like it :)

Sarah Zott said...

@sophie
It seems the austrians got lucky this time :-)
I'm still hyperventilating and grinning at the same time.

AdAl said...

Didn't win. My inbox is sadly empty.

I'm disappointed...(not that I ever win anything, anyway) but counting the days until June!

azteclady said...

*sigh*

No ARC for me--but huge congratulations to the five lucky readers.

Ellen C. said...

Yay, I got an email! I'm still in shock. I can't think of anything else to say, so here is a copy of my reply:

WOW, I can't believe I won!!! OMG this is the best news :) Thank you so much!!! There's so much I want to say but I'm speechless...

Ok found some stuff to say :) I've been anticipating this book release for months, maybe even years since I've read ALL the books in the psy/changeling series. When you speak to Nalini please give her a BIG THANK YOU AND HUG for me because she made this possible. I love her writing & she's one of my favorite authors of all time. I used to be a huge historical romance novel reader and she opened up a whole new world for me. I still remember how I found her through All About Romance.com, Slave to Sensation was number 100 on the top 100 romances of 2007 and I remember thinking hmm... this must be good if it's on the list. Now, it's one of my favorite novels of all time and I usually don't follow a series past the 5-6th book, but this series I'll follow all the way to then end :) Thanks again, I was very sad when I woke up this morning hearing about the tsunami and earthquakes in Japan and all those lives lost. It puts a different perspective on how you feel about life. Winning this contest gave me some Happiness today!

-Ellen C.

I live in Colorado, United States. Hopefully it shouldn't take more than 1-2 weeks? :)

Ellen C. said...

Btw, I'm reading A Lot Like Love by Julie James per your recommendation. It's really good :) I'm at the part of the bath tube scene and I had to fan myself to cool off! LOL

Rebecca Whitehead-Schwarz said...

I'm reading Rob Thurman's The Grimstone Path. I love her narrator - so unreliable and so much fun!

Anna said...

I think my email got lost. Would you send it again? LOL

I'm reading Indiscreet by Carolyn Jewel. Primal Bonds by Jennifer Ashley is next.

Cony said...

Hi everybody,

I just finished Noble Court by Dana Marie Bell. Very good author, funny and quite hot. Now I will read Lover Eternal, preperations for the new Black Dagger Brotherhood book Lover unleashed.

Greetings
Cony

Tyraa said...

I'm gutted I didn't win. I was so hopeful... Congrats to the winners tho, make sure you write a review so we can see just how good it is.

Lynn said...

I have started the latest installment to Eileen Wilk's Lupi series "Blood Challenge". Then after that one will be Patricia Briggs "River Marked" from the Mercy Thompson series.

Tiona said...

Congrats to the winners! I'm eatin up with jealousy!
Oh, I'm rereading "Angel's Blood' and a mystery by Laura Levine called 'This Pen For Hire'.

Naomi said...

actually, i'm reading Ruf der Vergangenheit (the german translation from Blaze of Memory) and i'm SO excited - although i've read it in english before ;D.

chgogirl said...

Hi, just finished Whisper of Sin in Burning Up. Sometimes, you have to go backwards to get caught up!I'm a senior think I can still find my changling. Aah, one can wish!!!

CC said...

I'm in the middle of "How to Knit a Love Song" by Rachel Herron. As a knitter and spinner the book intrigued me.

I just finished "Secrets in the Marriage Bed" by Nalini. FABULOUS. I kept getting teared up and thought about it while I was falling asleep last night. And today, I read "Nothing Personal" by Jaci Burton - also fabulous.
Next:
reread "Hunting Season" by Shelly Laurenston
"Ruthless Game" by Christine Feehan
"This Side of the Grave" by Jeaniene Frost

Also great - the series by Joss Ware beginning with "Beyond the Night".

I could hardly believe it when I checked my email, feel like I've won the lottery! But I'm so excited to receive an ARC. Congrats to Sophie, Sarah and Ellen as well!!! This made my entire year! (grin) I'm here in Canada!

I'm reading Kresley Cole's MacCarrick series and loving it.
Also enjoyed A Lot Like Love from Julie James.

Thanks again Nalini!!! Anna

Madhura said...

Congrats to the winners!

This is the one time I am equal parts jealous and happy that I didn't win. Jealous for obvious reasons, but happy because I am liking this wait and anticipation. I have already scheduled my time for the book and am so excited we will have it soon. Yeah, I am odd. :D

girlosun_9 said...

Checked my inbox as well, no email or spam :(

Jackie - said...

I am reading To Seduce a Bride, by Nicole Jordan.

Diane said...

Aw! No email!

No book this week, I've been too tired.

Mari said...

"And was I the only person left in the world who didn't know Stieg died?! SO inconvenient for more books in the Millenium series..."
Oh goodness Lucy it looks so awful when you say it like that but I know exactly what you mean!
I wish all my favorite authors were immortal so that I would never be denied a minute of the bliss they bring me with their hard work. Its very selfish, but what am I to do?

At the moment I'm between books. It's like being between boyfriends: very lonely.

I keep searching but nothing has caught my eye.

Perhaps I shall go back to J.D. Robb's In Death series. I'm only five books in. Its actually kind of daunting to see how many books there are in that series.

I am re-reading Alexandra Ivy's "Darkness" series. Just finished When Darkness Comes and have started on Embrace the Darkness. Didn't get a contest email, but congrats to those who did! I can't wait until KoS!

Christine S said...

Finally read Archangel's Consort. Fantastic! Now it's on to Blackout by Rob Thurman.
