I'm rereading MJ Putney's YA series. I just finished Dark Mirror and am starting Dark Passage. After that, I'm not sure yet. I'm so glad you like the Vorkosigan series! Have you read Shards of Honor and Barrayar?

I'm getting ready to read Lothaire by Kresley Cole. I love her Immortals After Dark series!

Sara said...

I read Copper Beach this week which was a good book but not one of Krentz's best. I also started reading Maya Banks KGI series.

I'm reading the fourth (and last) of Paolini's ERAGON series. Don't know the original title (I read it in German).
Great book, awesome series! If you like epic fantasy, I can't recommend it highly enough!

LOL, I'm with the majority and just finished Lothaire. Wasnt interested in him as a character or his book but absolutely enjoyed. I think Cole did an awesome job with this and kept the right balance of humor and scary bad hero.

I just finished All That Bleeds by Kimberly Frost. The hero Merrick, is a half vampire half human who is head over heels in love with a muse, a woman who inspires artists and scientists to create. Merrick is very protective of Alissa and their love letters were adorable. The lengths that Merrick went to, to protect Alissa were over the top in a good way. He is the shining example of an alpha male.

Hey everyone! I have been busy reading The Iron Druid Chronicles (Hounded/Hexed/Hammered) by Kevin Hearne. The series is about a 1,200 year old Druid named Atticus who lives in Tempe and he has conversations with his wolf hound (which are just hilarious by the way!) At the same time, he is battling the everyday vampire/demon/witch/warewolf that comes along. Also read the latest guardian book by Meljean Brook (Demon Marked) which was wicked good. I also finally finished the last book in Ava Gray's Skin series (Skin Dive). I was sad to see it all end, but it was super satisfying as well. Still waiting to get Lothaire from the library.

Okay - I was so excited about the post-Christmas ebook sales! I found two new authors through book deals.

1. Jaye Wells' Sabina Kane series about Vampires and Mages! - I loved this unique take on vampires.

2. Hex Series by Linda Wisdom. These witches are truly hilarious. I recommend starting with 50 Ways to Hex Your Lover.

@Jenny Schwartzberg

Have you read Shards of Honor and Barrayar?

Yes! That's actually how I got into the series, and they remain favorites.

I'm currently reading the second Valerie Dearborn novel. It's a vampire series, but it looks like it's going to extend to many other supernatural creatures (save for angels ~_^). It's been a nice departure from the string of YA books I was reading. I recommend checking this series out. I think it's only for the Kindle for now but the first book is only $1.99 (though it was 99 cents when I got it) and the second is $3.99. It's the best 99 cents I've spent on a Kindle release so far!

Just finished Kiss of Snow...and OMG was it great!! I was afraid I'd be disappointed after waiting for Hawke's story for sooo long, but it was wonderful! No disappointment at all, it was even better than I'd hoped for. These books keep getting better and better. *sigh*
Question: When can we expect the next book in the Psy-Changeling series? I'm hopelessly, shamelessly addicted...

Hi,

I am currently reading Lothaire, as a lot of you do,while the to be read pile grows and grows and grows..... I just want to thank you all for the great tips about authors and books - you prevent my wishlist from sinking below 100 books ;-)...
For all of you with a faible for epic fantasy I would recomend the books of David Eddings. (Series are called Belgariad followed in the storyline by Malloreon; Elenium followed in the storyline by Tamuli (Each of the 4 series are finished but the seconds are a follwo up) and the Elder Gods.
All the best
Cony

Lothaire, by Kresley Cole. Snowy, stormy day, Irish stew cooking on the stove, a great book to read, snuggled on the couch. Good day, for sure.

If I could go back in time it would probably the scottish highlands with the warriors on those cold highland nights. Love those books too. Rachael
