Glad to hear it since I plan to download these books soon! And also that I'm not alone in my dislike of the Night Huntress audiobook:) I too saw someone in another thread recommending it as one of the best audiobooks she'd heard and I just couldn't believe it!

390 The Sookie Stackhouse series have an amazing narrator. She totally sounds like I imagine Sookie does.
The BDB series was also goon on audio.

My absolute worst was the first of the Night Huntress series. The narrator just couldn't do male voices and ruined Bones completely for me.

390 You would know better nu! I've only read the first one though I have the second in my TBR and you've told me it's even better:)

I have only read the first one of the Sevenwaters series, and IMHO they're neither PNR nor Urban Fantasy. They're plain, simple YA fantasy with strong elements of romance. Just like Beauty or East or any of those fairytale-like stories; I find it difficult to classify a fairytale as PNR.

What I've also gathered so far, is that PNR focuses on the romance mainly, while UF on the adventure and world building. That's why many people accuse J.R. Ward for turning the BDB series slowly to UF from PNR. And that shows that you can't always classify an entire series as UF or PNR: some books in the series may belong in one genre and some in the other.

390 Oh, you are ruining a perfectly good character with this casting! I agree with Samantha who suggested Hugh Laurie or Robert Downey Jr for Haymitch. They're much better suited for this role IMO. And I have no problem imagining either one of them as drunk:)

390 Thank you both! It seems that battery replacement is not an issue after all:)

390 I recently read that in Kindle, you cannot change the battery yourself but have to send it back to Amazon to do it for you. Is that correct? Has anyone needed to do this or even after 2-3 years of usage, the battery is still working fine?

390 Kylie, I agree with you: Though I'm definitely team Adrian, this is just not going to happen. Rose will end up with Dimitri in the end and the only thing I can hope for is that the author doesn't kill Adrian to clear the coast.

I'm pissed too, because I just feel that Dimitri is not the right man for her (I know I'm the minority here), because he's too serious and dutiful and he keeps bogging her down with all that stuff. My opinion is that Rose is pretty serious and dedicated to Lissa already and she has absolutely no personal life, so she needs someone cooler, more relaxed (like Adrian) to help her see the fan side of life as well. But judging by how many fans Dimitri has, I guess few people agree with my ideas:)

On the other hand, I do believe that Adrian is Lissa's half brother, though I wouldn't swear on it. And though I don't know who killed the Queen, I don't think Abe did it.

390 Dark Needs at Night's Edge, #5 in the Immortals after Dark series by Kresley Cole, has a ghost as a heroine while the hero is a vampire.

390 I totally agree with the Sookie Stackhouse audiobooks; they rock!
Also, I recently listened to The Hunger Games (I know it's not PNR but it has some romance and it's an amazing book) and loved the narrator.

The one that totally disgusted me as an audiobook was Halfway to the Grave. The narrator totally ruined Bones (the hero for me); he was supposed to talk with a British cockney accent -I imagine something out of Guy Richie's films- but actually sounded like Eliza Doolittle with a cold.

Irene, I'm also from Greece and lately I've been ordering books from bookdepository.com and play.com which have no shipping costs. The average book prices are 5.00 to 7.00 euros which I guess are not more than the price of an ebook.

I just noticed that myself! I'm also glad to notice that I have been ordering at bookdepository.com instead of co.uk:) Also noticed that both sites contain my orders in the Order History tab, so they're definitely linked. Weird...

390 Someone recently pointed me to www.bookdepository.co.uk as well and I've been using it a lot lately because of the good prices and lack of shipping costs. I also use play.com sometimes and ebay.com for those that are out of print. Before that I shopped mainly at Amazon.co.uk but I stopped, because not only of the shipping costs but because ever since they switched to Deutch Mail, it takes close to 3 weeks to get the books here instead of 5 days as it used to.
390 I also move between series; I can't seem to read books in a row as I get bored by the same style over and over. The only times I've read a series in a row, is when it consists of 3 books max and they're so good I can't help myself, but even then it's a rare occurence.

I agree! I also have them in audiobooks and the narrator is the best I've heard so far. She does an exceptional job reading Sookie's parts.

PS: Ditto on being a Bill fan but switched to Eric after book 3.

Why are female protags so irritating? The only one I've loved Is Rose Hathaway, and when she screwed with Adrian's feelings in Blood promise? Not so much love for her! "


I agree so much! I kept wishing Luce would end up with Cam, instead of boring Daniel who did nothing except being pretty. And Luce annoyed me so much; she didn't do anything in the entire book.

390 I've got 120 books on my shelves that I've yet to read, 20 more on my iPod and yet I can't resist buying 3-5 books per month. You bet I feel overwhelmed:)
There is no chance to eliminate this TBR in less than two or three years and since I sometimes get in a shopping spree that ends in 10-15 books in a single month, even three years is wishful thinking. It's highly possible that some books in my TBR will never be read because I'll never be in the right mood to read them.
As for series, I can't remember the titles of the books in each one and can usually identify them only by number (if at all!).

This definitely is a site for addicts and that doesn't help anyone to curb their addiction I'm afraid. But I don't regret the time I'm spending here; I met some very interesting people who can at last understand how I feel and I found books recommended from my GR friends which I wouldn't otherwise have reached for. So Jesse, you're definitely not alone in how you feel:)

I love the night huntress series, and I just bought no rest for the wicked, so it's sitting to my TBR pile. "


I hope you enjoy No rest for the Wicked Samantha as much as I did! It's one of my favorite books ever.

I like Halfway to the Grave a lot, but I'm not in love with it yet. I hope the heroine gets over her notion 'all vampires are bad' soon, because she's not endearing herself to me so far.
