What Are You Reading?



I’m reading slower than usual–long days at the computer! I finished STRORM FRONT by Jim Butcher. I really enjoyed the wizard Harry Dresden. I’m going to have to get more of these books. Margaret, you were right!






Right now I’m reading  YOU’RE THE ONE THAT I HAUNT by Terri Garey. How cool is that title? I’d have bought it on the title alone, but a couple friends also recommended this author.  I must read her backlist too!




Okay that’s it for me. What about you guys? What are you reading?

    I’m reading Meryl Sawyer’s “Death’s Door.” I started this book more than week ago, but I’ve been busy and haven’t been able to finish it yet.

    Ooo, I’m so glad you like Dresden. I’m still making my way through that backlist. Next book buying extravaganza has to include books 6 & 7.

    Right now I’m reading The Stranger Beside Me by Ann Rule – updated for 2008. It’s a true-crime novel about Ted Bundy. I picked it up as research into the psyche of this serial killer (because of my WIP’s villain), but I’m really enjoying it, too. It’s interesting seeing Bundy through the eyes of a woman who was his friend even before he became a murderer.

    I’m going to have to see if I can find Terri’s book. The title is awesome enough to make me want it. Thanks, Jen. =o)

    Awesome title on Terri Garey’s book. I’ll have to go check it out. I just finished an ARC of Leslie Kelly-Parrish’s PITCH BLACK (first book in trilogy FADE TO BLACK due out this/next week). For dark suspense, these books are hard to beat. Just started reading Toni McGee Causey’s CHARMED AND DANGEROUS. I’m really identifying with Bobbie Faye, LOL!

    Need to work. Can’t get motivated. *sigh* Is it noon somewhere in the world? I foresee many appletinis in my future. ;)

    I’m reading an oldie– DARK FIRES by Rosemary Rogers. I read the first one about Steve and Ginny, SWEET, SAVAGE, LOVE just a week ago.

    Jane, I’ve read some of her books but not that one. Is it good?

    Years ago I took a cab with Meryl in NY, she’s really nice.

    I hear you on being busy!

    B.E., you’re way ahead of me on the Dreaden books. I should just order them all.

    I read Rule’s book many, many years ago. It’s really creepy to be that close to a killer and not even know it.

    I’m enjoying Terri’s book!

    Silver, are you really surprised you’re having a hard time getting motivated? You must still miss your dog each and every day!

    I am so embarrassed to admit I haven’t read Toni’s book yet. It’s on my list! And now it just moved up!

    Now I know it’s noon on the East Coast–appletini time!

    Kira, that takes me back! So are you enjoying the books the same as you did the first time? I should try rereading those. I loved them WAY back when I read them. SWEET SAVAGE LOVE was the first big romance I read.

    It was the very first romance I read. :)
    And I am enjoying them. Not like I did the first time, but I think that’s to be expected. Steve is much more of a jerk than I remember. lol But I think that was just the way they were written back then. I do love the story though. There is such angst between these two. And A LOT of misunderstandings– which I know in todays market wouldn’t fly.
    I love them anyway.

    Hmmm … reading Shadow Kiss – it’s the third in the Vampire Academy Series by Richelle Mead. Sometimes I need a YA or two to cleanse the palatte. Not sure what I’ll grab after that but I’m really looking forward to Leslie Parrish’s Fade to Black.

    I’m almost finished reading LUCKY STREAK by Carly Phillips. Really enjoying it. I have no clue what I’ll be reading next.

    I just finished Cut, Crop, & Die by Joanna Campbell Slan and now I’m reading Obsession, Deceit and Really Dark Chocolate By Kyra Davis.

    Glad you enjoyed Dresden! I’m such a cheapwad that I’ve caught up to his hard backs and now have to wait until they come out in paperback *taps toe, checks watch*

    Not reading right now. Brain dead from trying to get my MG novel ready for the Delacorte deadline -TODAY! Need booze. LOTS of it.
    It’s in the mail. I like it, but you know how contests are, plus out of the last 16 Years worth of Yearling contests, they’ve only awarded 7, YES 7, winners.
    Will take one week off to read, play with kiddo, and judge Lone Star entries, and then start querying while thinking up plot for book #2.

    Kira, that makes sense to me! And it’s kind of cool to see how romance has evolved over the years. Maybe I will reader them.

    Ban, I haven’t heard of SHADOW’S KISS. I love the Vampire Academy concept. Jsut what I need, more books on my list!

    I like YA sometimes too.

    Erika, sounds like a good book! We just don’t see many straight contemporaries right now.

    Dru, that sounds like a cozy mystery title! Very cool, I’ll have to check them both out.

    Margaret, I did enjoy him! It was a fun read, and I am very interested to see where he goes with the character. Plus–he’s a wizard!

    How can they award only 7 winenrs out of 16 years of contests? My fingers are crossed for you though! And congrats on getting it done and in the mail (I hope I read that right, you got it in the mail today?)

    It’s long past time for booze–bring it on!

    I know I’m slow in answering guys. I’m getting dragged deeper and deeper into this book.

    Then we forgive you ;) I know how you feel BTW, my TBR pile’s gonna collapse any day now. It’s a good series though – The main character is a bit brash at times but you get used to her and the concept is pretty darn interesting.
