Hamilton, Psy-Changeling Readalong & Friday Book Club

North American Cover
Before we kick off the Friday Book Club, I have some info to share with you. First of all, for readers in Hamilton, New Zealand, I'll be appearing in the Hamilton Gardens Arts Festival.

UK & Commonwealth Cover
Bread & Roses: Discussion with me and chef Sarah Turpitt, with Denise Irvine as Chair
Monday 18th February
Indian Char Bagh Garden
(I believe this event is free!)

There's no official signing planned, but if you rock on up with your books, I will happily sign them. See some of you in a week! :-)
German Cover


Audiobook Cover
If you'd like to discuss the Psy/Changeling series, Casey and Courtney from the Literary Escapism blog are doing a readalong of the series as they count down to HEART OF OBSIDIAN and inviting other readers to join in the conversation.

Even if you've already read the books, you might enjoy the discussion. 

The SLAVE TO SENSATION discussion is scheduled for February 14th, so if you haven't read the book, you have a week to dive into Lucas and Sascha's story :-)

French Cover
Just for fun, I've illustrated this blog post with a number of STS covers from around the world. Which one's your favorite?

Spanish Cover


And now the book club! What are you reading and loving this week?

Have a fantastic weekend everyone!! :-)

Good morning from Germany,
while I have Slave to Sensation with the North American Cover, which I like very much, the UK cover is always fascinating me.
At the moment I am ill, I catched a cold, therefor not so much reading. But I started to read the Queen of Shadows, book one of the Shadow World by Dianne Sylven. Less romance more fighting, a darker series. Next will be Mercenary Abduction, book four of the "Alien Abduction" Series of Eve Langlais. There is not much in the universe as funny as a purple mercenary macho meeting his human match..... Highly recomanded.....
Happy reading everybody!

I love the Uk/Commonwealth covers. At the moment I am reading Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl. It's YA and an easy read but I'm really enjoying it and wanted to read it before I see the movie. I'm also reading The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion. I just started it and at first I wasn't convinced but now Im getting into it. The narrator is a socially awkward man trying to find a wife/love. Its pretty funny

I like the UK and the French cover.
I just finished the German edition of Serpent's Kiss by Thea Harrison yesterday, which many readers didn't like, if I'm not mistaken. Can't see why, though; maybe it's not the best book in the series, but I definitely enjoyed it.

What exactly does "Leoparden Blut" translate to, from the German cover? I like that cover and the audiobook the best.

I like the north american cover (Love the "cat" eyes of the male model).

Finished Where She Belongs by Cindy Procter King and reread Second Chance Romance by Sophie Monroe.

@Cony: Gute Besserung!

@Joy: Leopardenblut means leopard blood.

I'm finishing up rereading shades of gray by maya banks in the KGI series. I like and own the north american cover which got my attention when I was looking for a book to read at the bookstore and I also like the french cover because it has both charactors on the cover and the forest underneath them which to me seems to work well with the image of the changelings and their territory.

I'm reading Jack Campbell's Lost Fleet series. They're really great military sci fi, and finally got me out of my reading slump I've been stuck in since December.
I'm also reading Etiquette&Espionage by Gail Carriger, which is set in the same world as her Parasol books, but, I think, two decades earlier in the timeline.

The audiobook cover looks intriguing!
Still juggling Golden Eyes by Maya Banks, Moon Burning by Lucy Monroe and The Sun Witch by Linda Winstead Jones. Ugh. I'm losing traction and it's only February... Manga is the only thing saving me for staying on pace with my (overly) ambitious Goodreads reading goal.

I'm listening to Robopocalypse by Daniel Wilson. Good, but I loved his non-fiction YA audio books, How to Survive a Robot Uprising, and Where's my Jetpack a lot better. It's a talent to have snark and solid information in one book.
