What Am I Reading On Monday – I finally Read It

Books I completed this week are:

Arm Candy – Carol Lynne  ( Cattle Valley Series)

Unridden – Cat Johnson  (Studs & Spurs series)

Reckless Passion – Amanda Young

Reckless Behaviour – Amanda Young

Over the Moon - Anthology

I finished THE MAVERICK– Finally. Palmer is one of my must read authors but I have been dragging my feet on this one.. It is a continuation of the whole Jacobsville war against drug plot and boys and girls getting together….

The Maverick – Diana Palmer

Meg Benjamin second book is a cracker of a read – I was dying to get my mitts on another Tollefson brother and I did and his story is funny, chaotic and absolute sarcastic madness, but I loved it.

Wedding Bell Blues_ Konigsburg, Book 2 - Meg Benjamin

Rivers of Tears – For those of you who have been following my journey with this emotional read. My review is up. River Of Tears - Michele Montgomery.



Books I am currently reading

After reading a few review of SKIN GAME I have decided to give it a go and I am hoping this works for me as well. I have read the author – Ava Grey other voice Ann Aguirre and I love it, so I am hoping this lives up to the hype – so far  good anyhow. I didn’t finish this one yet , so hopefully will finish this today..

Midnight Cove is a requested review book and it’s a genre that I love (Romance Suspense) so I am giving it a go.

Midnight Cove - Cierra James

Skin Game – Ann Aguirre

 

Hoping to get through this week

Lovers, Dreamers, and Me - Willa Okati

Broken – Dawn Kimberly Johnson

Dragon Storm, Bk6 – Bianca D’arc

The Jade Owl – Edward C. Patterson

Howling At The Moon – Karen MacInerney

 

My most anticipated book of the week is

I am one of those people who never feel content unless I have at least three reading projects going all at once. So along with sometimes on audio, I’ll have something on the e-reader or a book – but I must always have a “Book for the bag”. I wait around alot on my kids – for sports practice, creative practices or some other venture or just the post office, and it is at these times that I pop this book out and get stuck in…..

I have recently finished the last book I had in my book and Haglerat from Unbound was kind enough to brave the UK postal strike to get this book to me…. I have been salivating over this book for awhile now…. it will take me sometime to finish, but - I don’t care…

The book has three covers so far –I thought I would let you guys see the three – I am a cover hussy… The top one is the UK cover, the next two are the Australian and the US one’s consecutively… No question on which one is my favourite…

Everything about the UK cover says dark fantasy – the mist, the castle in the background, just the unknown. I love it.

HEART'S BLOOD - MARILLIER, JULIET

 

A stunning gothic love story based on the legends of Beauty and the Beast

A haunted forest. A cursed castle. A girl running from her past and a man who’s more than he seems to be. A tale of love, betrayal and redemption…

Whistling Tor is a place of secrets, a mysterious wooded hill housing the crumbling fortress of a chieftain whose name is spoken throughout the district in tones of revulsion and bitterness. A curse lies over Anluan’s family and his people; the woods hold a perilous force whose every whisper threatens doom.

And yet the derelict fortress is a safe haven for Caitrin, the troubled young scribe who is fleeing her own demons. Despite Anluan’s tempers and the mysterious secrets housed in the dark corridors, this long-feared place provides the refuge she so desperately needs.

As time passes, Caitrin learns there is more to the broken young man and his unusual household than she realised. It may be only through her love and determination that the curse can be lifted and Anluan and his people set free...

Jennifer on 23 November 2009 at 19:24 said...

You managed to read quite a lot last week. You have large selection this week as well. Happy reading. :)

J. Kaye on 23 November 2009 at 19:42 said...

I can't wait for Palmer's book. I just ordered THE WINTER MAN (?) It's two books in one, I believe.

Cat on 23 November 2009 at 20:53 said...

What a nice layout your blog has......love that header.

I enjoy Juliet Marillier and that first cover is definitely the most appealing.

You have quite a selection for the coming week. Happy reading!

@Jennifer

I am such a mood reader...

Erotic Horizon on 23 November 2009 at 23:13 said...

@J. Kaye

Yup I remember seeing that release... She has been re-releasing her back catalogue like that for the past two years...

I wonder if she is going to stop writing..

E.H>

Erotic Horizon on 23 November 2009 at 23:14 said...

@Cat..

Thank you and welcome to my little slice of the pie...

I see you are another Juliet Marillier fan... I am looking forward to starting that one...

Erotic Horizon on 23 November 2009 at 23:15 said...

@Alaine

I have one of those "Hoping to get through by Christmas' list as well...

I'll be looking out for your thought on Heart's Blood..

E.H>

J. Kaye on 23 November 2009 at 23:16 said...

E.H., I don't know, but hope not. Maybe she's becoming more popular and they are trying to sell her older books to a newer audience. I just bought the book, so it's working on me. (lol)

Erotic Horizon on 23 November 2009 at 23:22 said...

I hope not as well J Kaye.. because she does has a special place in my reading life...

I also find her back catalogue better, weightier in terms of plot and character build up...

If I didn't already own her entire catalogue in print - I would be buying some of the re-releases, I love some of the covers on the newer books...

I agree with you - young readers, newer audience might just be her target market now....

She better not forget about old faithful me.... in that rush to get new readers in... I still need my constant fix of new material - at least twice a year...
