31308 Until Forever by Johanna Lindsey just couldn't stand.

Ashes in the Wind by Kathleen E. Woodiwiss which I loved when I was 19, hated when I was in my 40s.

31308 Are there any books you're looking at?

Oh my gosh, I read what Sandi wrote, then responded then went back up to read more and someone wrote the exact same thing! Like minds!
I'll switch genres to something totally different. I'm reading a HR, getting bored, turn to sci-fi, even a short story so you can break it up. Sometimes just reading something you normally wouldn't does the trick.

Audios are great for commutes and while working or cleaning (ugh!). Makes the day go by faster and I feel I'm getting "reading" time in still. It does take a little getting used to it but you find a good narrator it makes it a lot easier. I do some of my favorite series as re-reads by audiobook, especially if a new one is coming out soon it kind of refreshes everything for me.

31308 Congrats Sandi - you're doing a wonderful job so far :)

31308 I really disliked Until Forever by Johanna Lindsey, hated the heroine.

The Bride and the Beast (Fairy Tales, #2) by Teresa Medeiros, I forced myself to finish that book and ended up skimming it just to finish it.

31308 I read it and enjoyed it - I hate to bash books across the board. I'll dislike for something that I don't like but to do that in Heros and Heartbreakers is pushing it.

Kaitlyn O'Connor, smutty sci-fi, with humor.

31308 I see repetition in the heroine a lot when I read one genre. The sassy 20 year old (if she's Scottish or interested in someone from Scotland) or the kick-ass potty mouth (sci-fi and urban fiction). And the vampire men all start to meld into one man, with slight variations. Or the soldier or ex-soldier that doesn't take no for an answer and tells the heroine this is the way it's going to be no arguments. I know there's only so much difference a writer can make and I would hate to try to write it myself, but sometimes I have a hard time keeping them straight after I read a book.

The cover so many times doesn't match the book!

31308 I don't have one of her book! I'll pass this month.

31308 I read this a few months ago and really liked it too. It was a pick-it-for-me in this group.

31308 I tried to do this one - I suck at both crosswords and sudoku, so I gave up :(
31308 It was a wonderful book and the heroine I loved, which I usually just like. I had to keep reminding myself, she's only 17 and then she's only 19. The only complaint I might have was the scene with her running off with her brother and the trial. I don't know if I hated it more because of what Ian went through or because I thought it didn't have to be such a horribly humiliating scene for Ian or maybe both. That part had me squirming to get beyond it. But other than that, loved it!

31308 Oh, that's too bad Misfit - I have that book!

31308 I hope I don't get any hate e-mail, but I would have to say one of the worst for me was Ashes in the Wind. This was a 20+ years re-read and I couldn't figure out why I liked it before.

31308 I'm into so many right now, historical romance, paranormal romance, urban fiction, mystery, but it seems I read paranormal romance the most at this point.
31308 I have it in my library book stack. I hope to get to it within a week.
31308 I just requested this from the library. I still have to read October's book!
