30999 Kay, you have to read Ghost's book. It's really good. I think the story was much better than Brian/Candace, even though Ghost can't replace Brian.

Finished Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass, #1) by Sarah J. Maas and it was decent, although not one of the most impressive fantasy debuts I've read. I liked one of the characters enough that I'll continue on with the series though.

Started Beautiful Days (Bright Young Things, #2) by Anna Godbersen and Bonds of Need (Wicked Play, #2) by Lynda Aicher

30999 Welcome back, Shell. Sorry you've been having a rough time.

What are you in the mood to read?

30999 I like that cover but Curran looks strange in the background. The mouth open thing is odd.

Oh, speaking of Banks, did I mention that I'd finished Highlander Most Wanted (The Montgomerys and Armstrongs, #2) by Maya Banks? Maybe not, since I finished it last night. I quite enjoyed the book.

I'm buddy reading it with Dee but she's around the same point I am too, so we've both been going slow. I feel like such a slog because I've been reading on it for almost a week now.

30999 I don't like when books start following a copy-cat trend, but I do appreciate that romance and erotica is not all naked guys or couples in an embarrassing embrace anymore.

My favorite covers always tend to lead more toward the YA side because adult books usually have that "hit you over the head with cheese" look to me.

30999 Have you guys ever had a book that's not doing it for you, but you almost feel like you want to stick it out but don't know why?

I'm struggling through Nightshifted (Edie Spence, #1) by Cassie Alexander and part of me wants to give up but I'm past the halfway point now, so I feel like I should keep going.

30999 I love your shelf.

30999 That cover is so misleading! You think it's gonna be sex-sex-sex!

30999 The HEA tied up nicely isn't a big concern of mine either. I've read books that I've liked where everything wasn't tied up in a pretty bow and been fine with it.

It's just the wtf-why-is-this-erotica? for me, haha.
Mar 14, 2013 01:58PM

30999 I think I'd like her better if her books weren't marketed as erotica. When I pick up an erotica, it's for the purpose of reading something super steamy and arousing. If I want to read a sad or realistic story, I'll go read a literary fiction or some Jojo Moyes or something similar.

30999 I keep saying that I'm done with Megan Hart but that one does look sort of interesting. I might have to consider it.

30999 Unidentified Redhead is cute. Book 2 was cute too but I liked the first better. It looks like book 3 won't be out for a long time though. I read those before I knew they were fanfiction, otherwise I might have given them a pass. It seems to be a big no-no these days to read p2p fanfic without getting a lecture from someone.

My time is split at the moment between commitments, so I'm still working on Nightshifted, plus I'm starting Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass, #1) by Sarah J. Maas and Highlander Most Wanted (The Montgomerys and Armstrongs, #2) by Maya Banks

30999 Most of these people probably send out several requests, so they probably don't notice if I don't respond.

30999 I've only taken them from authors who I'm interested in reading from, i.e. Karina Halle gifted me a book recently because she knew I enjoyed one of her other books. The majority of the requests that come my way are spam and I get a lot of them. I used to be polite and write nice "thank you, I'm flattered, but I can't" responses but I tend to ignore the majority of them now. Not out of rudeness but because I feel like I'm constantly busy when I'm on the computer. Maybe I should have a generic response to cut and paste into replies.

30999 That's rough. I am so scared to take author requests and have only done it a couple of times, even though I get a lot of them. At least with NG/ED, you can decide whether or not to even submit a review (I will give them my 2 and 3 star reviews, but usually choose to omit the 1 star reviews).

Arcadia is a book I've looked at a couple of times. It looks interesting. Have you read anything else by this author?

(thanks Kay!)

GR was pointless today. I gave up trying and went and cleaned the house.

We both finished books with butter in the title, hah. I read Butter by Erin Jade Lange and it was interesting but but strange. I liked the story but not the characters if that makes sense.
