The “More” Book

I stumbled onto this review the other day that ended with:

“…In closing, Blood Magic made me want more. More witches. More witch hunters. More sex. More. More. More.”  You can see the whole review here if you wish.

dancingbaby-14That line cracked me up! Actually I loved it and danced like a baby!

We all know those books, the MORE BOOKS, where we just hate reading that last page.  For me, DARK LOVER was like that, so was OUTLANDER and, hmm, NOBODY’S BABY BUT MINE…and probably at least a 100 other ones.

So what are some of your MORE BOOKS?

    BLOOD MAGIC for sure! And BEDEVILED (Maureen Child) along with HOMICIDE IN HARDCOVER (Kate Carlisle). I’ve just read all three of these so they are fresh on my mind. I also know that if other books in the series were out, I would have scarfed them up immediately and jumped right in. My TBR pile is stacked with second and third books in series but they’re all languishing somewhere in the moutain. It takes something fresh and…dynamic to propel me straight into the next book (or keep me hopping up and down in anticipation while I wait for the next installment!)No matter how deep my pile is, when the next books of these three series come out, I’ll go back to reread the first book and then be able to dive right into the second one and roll around in all that goodness like a shaggy dog on a pile of…leaves. ;)

    The only “old” book I can think of is NAKED IN DEATH. I read it. And immediately went in search of every book in the series (I think there were 22 out in paperback and a few anthologies when I discovered JD Robb)and devoured them as they arrived in the mail. I have the rest in hardback.

    Wow! How cool is that, Jen? A “More” book! Love that. :)

    Kinda like Silver mentioned above, I have to say I’ll read one Nora’s stories and then hunt down the rest in her trilogy… and now I have hundreds of her books. LOL! And like you, DARK LOVER.

    Dark Lover is definitely a more book, plus all the books that followed it, all of Nora Roberts trilogies, Stephanie Plum (I think I read the first six books in a matter of days), It had to be you (Susan Elizabeth Phillips), and the last one I can think of off the top of my head…. Agnus and the Hitman (Jennifer Crusie).

    On a side note, the Samantha Shaw series rocked too. :)

    Thanks Silver! I loved both BEDEVILED and HOMICIDE IN HARDCOVER too!

    NAKED IN DEATH was really good. I’m trying to remember the first one of JD Robb (Nora) that I read, but I can’t. However, I know I went out and searched finding more and more of them!

    Michele, it is cool! Thanks! I was really surprised when I found it. I know you’re a big Nora fan, and you even met her in an interesting way :-)

    DARK LOVER rocks!

    Erika, thanks for saying that about Sam! I miss her.

    Stephanie Plum is one of a kind! I used to love Jennifer Cruise, but I haven’t read her since she started collaborating. AGNES AND THE HITMAN is good?

    Agnes and the Hitman rocks! I didn’t care for Don’t Look Down, but AGNES is the best. I think she finally got that Bob guy on the right track for chick lit. If you can’t find it at your local library let me know, I have a copy I would be happy to loan out.

    “you even met her in an interesting way”

    Uh, yeah. She’s kick-ass, like her heroines! Love her.

    I’m on my way to pick up Dark Lover at the library. If this turns out to be keeper, I’m going to ask for donations to buy a new book case. LOL!

    Erika, okay you sold me, I’ll give it at try. I think I can scrounge up a copy, but thanks for the offer!

    Michele, I know! And it was so cool that you just stumbled onto her :-) But yeah, you can really see why she has such kick ass heroines!

    Silver, hmm, if this turns out to be a keeper, maybe we can send some guys over to build you a new bookcase…if we can get them away from Mel long enough.

    If you find guys to do that, I need new book cases too. Several…all over the house…I have a lot of books.

    Okay. Enough teasing. I want the whole story!?! Jen? Michele? Somebody start talking or no appletinis today!

    Mel? Dudette, time to send some of those hunks back out into circulation. They need to come up for air sometime. Just sayin’…

    Silver that’s just mean! It’s not my story to tell, so I’m bound by the code of friendship to stay silent!You are forcing me to use my magic to conjure up appletinis!

    Michele doesn’t seem to be around, she probably probably went out and ran into another famous person…just saying….mwhahaha!!! Okay sorry, but I REALLY NEED an appletini!

    Well….okay. But just for you because you’re under such duress and we all know spells can sour a perfectly good appletini. *passes glasses and shakes some up* But inquiring minds STILL want to know! *plots truth spells for when Michelle returns*

    Silver, that appletini hit the spot! Maybe I can get Michele to tell her story in a blog…see if you can tweak your spell to get her to say yes!

    Wow if you guys love Dark Lover as much as it seems you do I’m in the right chat…Im obsessed with JR Ward and if you love her you’ll love Christine Feehans ‘Dark’ series, Lara Adrian’s Books, Sherrilyn Kenyons “Dark Hunter’ series and Jaquline Franks Novels. They’ve all got the sexy dark guy vibe with action and the ‘more factor’ I find the more factor is both a blessing and a curse. Just like Blood Magic Im riveted and cannot wait to see what happens next but the wait is hard! Seeing the different sides of the story is always really cool but its hard to push back the story and wait for the next book to come out!

    Hi Dawn! Several people who hang out here love JR Ward. She has created a fascinating world with incredible heroes! I hope you enjoyed BLOOD MAGIC enough to wait for SOUL MAGIC–it will hit the stores on November 24th!
