What Are You Reading?

Actually, I want to go read now…I just barely started a book and love it so far. But I’ll talk more about that book in a minute.

First I read THE LAST TIME I SAW YOU by Elizabeth Berg.  This is not a romance, but a trade sized novel.  I didn’t care for it at first, but eventually got into it.  This is a totally different type of book than I normally read. It’s all centered around a 40 year high school reunion. I think the fact that I graduated high school a year early at 16 is part of my problem. I was never really a part of the high school culture. But it was interesting.

Now onto the next book. I’ve only read two chapters, but I’m hooked. It’s SINS OF THE HEART by Eve Silver. I met Eve a couple years ago at my agent’s cocktail party and really liked her.  I’ve read some of her other books, but I was really looking forward to this new series.   I always hold my breath a little bit when I start a book by someone I’ve met and liked–I want to love the book but that doesn’t always happen.  However, I’d say I’m well on my way to real love with SINS OF THE HEART!

So what are you reading?

    Both of your books sound interesting. I love the cover of Sins of the Heart.

    Right now I’m reading Deathwish by Rob Thurman (book 4 of the Cal Leandros urban fantasy series). So far I’m having a tough time getting into it, but I think that’s more my fault than the fault of the book. I keep comparing her writing to the book I’m querying. It’s not pretty. The last book I read was The War After Armageddon by Ralph Peters. Definitely thought provoking, but about halfway through I looked at my husband and said ‘This isn’t going to end well’. Too bad I was right.

    Jen, I believe I mentioned I am trying not to add new authors to my list, but you keep mentioning books that sound interesting. I might have to pick up the Eve Silver book. My list just keeps growing, lol.

    I didn’t graduate early but High School was nothing special for me. Most of my friends were through my job and went to other schools, and I had a bad attitude back then and pretty much blew off school. I havn’t been to a reunion yet, I simply have no one I want to reconnect with and no real good memories to relive. So “The Last Time I Saw You” doesn’t hold much interest for me.

    I’ve recently read Cynthia Eden’s “Eternal Flame” and Maya Banks “No Place To Run” and am working on Kate Perry’s “Tempted By Fate”. All good books.

    B.E., that is a great cover for SINS OF THE HEART.

    You’re doing some heavier reading! I may look at The War After Armageddon, even if it doesn’t end well. I’m trying to vary my reading a little these days.

    Val, sorry! I can’t help but talk about books, LOL!

    High School wasn’t a great time for me either, so I think that’s why I didn’t immediately connect with first book. But SINS OF THE HEART has some truly fascinating world building!Not hat I’m trying to encourage you or anything :-)

    I’ve heard good things about Cynthia Eden’s books, she’s on my list to read soon!

    Jen, I just finished the DARK AND STORMY KNIGHTS anthology edited by PN Elrod. It was delightful! I enjoyed each and every entry–unusual for me. As soon as I clear some things off my To Do list, I’m snagging Laura Griffin’s UNFORGIVABLE. I can’t wait to dive into it!

    Some time ago, I started reading Eve Silver’s Demon books (Compact of the Sourcerers(?) but got sidetracked from any of her newer stuff. I’ll have to add her back on the list. :D

    Is it Friday yet?

    Silver, that is unusual to like all the books in an antho!

    This is a new series for Eve. So far, I like it even better than her other demons.

    I want to read Laura’s UNFORGIVABLE too.
