Whatcha Reading?

Before I start, a reminder to  Linda Sienkiewicz that you won Laura Wright’s book ETERNAL HUNGER. Email me at email hidden; JavaScript is required with your mailing address!

I just finished ADAM by Ted Dekker. The book took a twist I wasn’t expecting, and for me, it’s just too dark of a place.

Before that I read HUNGER GAMES by Suzanne Collins, that was very good! I totally see why people are hooked on her series.

Next up, I think I’m going to read Lara Adrian’s TAKEN BY MIDNIGHT.

What are you reading?

    I’m about 3/4 of the way through Cursor’s Fury by Jim Butcher (Book 3 of his Codex Alera fantasy series). It’s a long book, but very edge of your seat writing. Before that was Rachel Vincent’s My Soul to Keep. Next up? Hmm, that’s a toughie. I think I’ll go with a political thriller by Vince Flynn. I’m still trying to stay away from paranormal anything until I get in the groove for my next book. =o)

    I’ve never heard of ADAM, but I read Hunger Games (and the rest of the trilogy). I’m glad you enjoyed the first book. I’ll hold off saying anything about the sequels so I don’t ruin the surprise.

    I recently read Ted Dekker’s “Immanuel’s Veins”, it was the first book of his I read and it just didn’t do anything for me. I picked it up on impulse, but don’t think I’ll be getting anything else from him.

    I als just finished Rachel Vincent’s “Alpha”, and am now reading Sharon Ashwood’s “Scorched”. Sharon is also a first time read for me, and I’m planning on getting more of her books. It’s different enough to be interesting and has enough humor thrown in to give me a giggle now and then.

    B.E., you don’t read what you’re writing? Which I understand, although now I try to read to keep up on the market.

    I have to read Rachel Vincent–I keep meaning too.

    It’ll be awhile before I read the next books, I don’t want to buy them in hardback :-) But Hunger Games was interesting!

    Val, Sharon Ashwood? That’s not ringing a bell, I’m going to look her up. I love books that make me giggle!

    The Dekker book pushed my buttons–it’s nothing to do with the author, it’s me and I recognize that. So I’m just not going to comment further.

    I finished J R Ward’s CRAVE a couple of days ago and have been in between books. I just went to Barnes & Noble and bought Mercedes Lackey’s INTRIGUES and Sherrilyn Kenyon’s BLOOD TRINITY. BLOOD TRINITY is the first in a new series by Sherri and Diana Love. I can’t decide which one I want to read first. Hmmm, decisions, decisions.

    Oh, I usually inhale paranormal and urban fantasy – even while I’m writing – but I’m having enough trouble getting into my own groove right now without other related-genre authors’ voices in my head. I’ll be back to my usual reading habits in a week or two. =o)

    I’m reading Allison Brennan’s CARNAL SIN. So far, it makes me wish I could just sit and read instead of grabbing a few pages in between chores and other things. It’s very intense and a bit creepy but in a shivery *oooh!* way. Happy Almost Friday, witches!

    Dawn, I feel for you! I always have a hard time deciding which book to read next!

    Did you like CRAVE? I can’t decide if I want to read it or not.

    B.E., taking a break is a great idea! I’ve been trying to vary my reading a bit more lately just on principle.

    Silver, I want to read her sin books, I have the first one here, just haven’t gotten to it yet. But you’re enticing me!

    Jen, I did like CRAVE. It was hard for me to put it down. But then, most of her books are like that.

    Dawn, well if you like it, I probably will too!
