Fran | 7236 comments Great choices this week Yz! If I have already read Pack Challenge can I read the next one in the series and still count it? If not, I am going to read Love My Way or reread Strange Attractions (one of my favorite Emma Holly's)

Yes, you can read any book in the series. It will count for you completing the challenge, although it will not be a vote for the book on the list.

Unfortunately, I'm not sending events for this one because I launch a new list every week, Monday to be exact.


message 19: by KarenF (new)

KarenF (CleoCleveland) | 1022 comments I'm going for Dance Upon the Air.


message 20: by Annie (new)

Annie (themadnessofhamsters) At the moment, I'm going with Dance Upon the Air.

I've already read Pack Challenge, Strange Attractions and Wild Magic. Own Wild Magic - and every other Tortall book published. And re-read when I can... so reading something else this time.


message 21: by Renee (new)

Renee | 231 comments I just put a hold on Dance Upon the Air at the library...no one ahead of me so I should have it in a day or so :)


message 22: by Ashley♥Alexis (new)

Ashley♥Alexis | 309 comments So i read Dance Upon the Air and LOVED IT. i realize its part of a series but I don't have an real desire to read the other 2 books but I probably will. I just adored Nell. I really liked the Wiccan/lore ideas in the story.

That is my favorite book among the trilogy, so I think you got the best book out of the way. : )

I agree, I loved the first! The second one was pretty good as well but I didn't really like the third. Mia was a little too bitchy for me and the ending felt rushed. Still a good trilogy overall though.


message 25: by Sheila (new)

Sheila (SheilaJ) | 231 comments I finished Dance Upon the Air by Nora Roberts today 12/10

Pretty typical Nora Roberts formula book. I usually can figure out who is going to end up with each other by the first chapter. Does anyone else have that problem?


message 26: by Carla (new)

Carla (Carla981) | 108 comments I am going to try and read Pack Challenge for this one if I can get a hold of it. If not, I will proabably read First Drop of Crimson


message 27: by Daffodil (new)

Daffodil (Daffodil--RIPCranberry) | 1057 comments I finished Pack Challenge on Saturday, 12-12-10. This book was a true guilty pleasure. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it, even had a few laugh-out-loud moments. Sara and her friends were argumentative, mean and critical. And, that was just to each other. Despite that, you could tell that they truly loved one other and woe to the man (or pride member) that threatened any member of their group. 4 stars.


message 28: by Sandra J (last edited Dec 13, 2010 12:25PM) (new)

Sandra J Weaver (sandraweaver) | 349 comments I finished my reread of Pack Challenge last week. It's not my favorite of the Magnus Pack books since I wasn't too awfully fond of Sara. I thought Sara was too over the top in a book where all the characters are over the top. She had a real mean streak that I wasn't too fond of. On the other hand, I loved Miki and Angie. I certainly wouldn't want to cross any of them.

Heck, most romance books I know that answer by reading the back cover.


message 30: by Fran, Moderator (new)

Fran | 7236 comments I just downloaded Love My Way from allromance.com for free today. They have a 12 days of Christmas special going on and today is this book- in case anyone wants to read it for this list.


message 31: by Yz the Whyz, Moderator (new)

Yz the Whyz (whyz) | 9003 comments Finished Captive Dreams last night. It was an okay read. If you are not into 'dubious' consent erotica stuff, you might want to steer clear of this book. I give it 3 stars.


message 32: by Mandy (new)

Mandy Beyers (MandyBeyers) | 739 comments I am going to read Love My Way and probably re-read Pack Challenge. (Thanks for the heads-up on the free book, Fran!)


message 33: by Mandy (new)

Mandy Beyers (MandyBeyers) | 739 comments Finished Love My Way on 12/15 - I really enjoyed it, but it is NOT for those who don't like reading about alternative lifestyles. I loved the concept of merging a search for a new submissive with a reality show, though. (What can I say - I like my fiction to be FAR from reality!) I gave it 4 stars (3.5 rounded up).


message 34: by Lynne (new)

Lynne (LoveToReadGal) | 1005 comments Just finished re-reading Pack Challenge by Shelley Laurenston (12/17). I love this author! I forgot how much fun this book is.

Lacy♪ ♫Movements of a Demigod ♪ ♫ (lb3553) | 29 comments I finished reading Pack Challenge by Shelley Laurenston on 12/17/2010. This was the first book that I have read by Laurenston and I really enjoyed it. It was definitely worthy of 4 stars.


message 37: by Fran, Moderator (last edited Dec 20, 2010 05:44PM) (new)

Fran | 7236 comments Since I already read Pack Challenge I read the next one in the series, Go Fetch! (4*). I liked Pack Challenge but I LOVED Go Fetch!. Man, I want my own Conell. Loved him, liked Miki, the whole story made me smile and laugh out loud a few times. Will definitely read the rest of the series. I will still try to get Love My Way in before the deadline but not sure I will make it.


message 38: by Elise (new)

Elise (elisekb) | 4 comments This is my first challenge and I read A Drop of Crimson by Jeanine Frost. I have read the other series of hers called Night Huntress and I can hardly compare the two. A Drop of Crimson took me almost the full week to finish and I usually read books in 1-2 days. I did not like the female lead role. She was whinny and sometimes I had to put the book down because I felt like I wanted to slap her. But Spade, the hero, was very yummy and I did like him a lot. The plot was good with an exciting story line, I guess I just couldn’t get past the female lead… I give it 3.5 Stars

I'm in agreement with you Elise. I did not like Denise at all, although Spade was a worthy hero.


message 40: by Annie (new)

Annie (themadnessofhamsters) I finished Dance Upon the Air a couple of days ago.

I will be reading the rest of the series. Not my favourite Nora at the moment, but a good solid read for the holidays.


message 41: by Sarah (new)

Sarah | 31 comments I think I have Silent Scream on my TBR mountain. I'll look when I get home tonight after work and tutoring. If it's there...I'll try to work it in during the next 6 days. This between getting all of my Christmas wrapped and finishing up things for my wedding next Thursday.


message 42: by Mandy (new)

Mandy Beyers (MandyBeyers) | 739 comments I think I felt so sorry for Denise because of her past - and really, could Cat be best friends with ANYONE who was that bad? I just thought she was still suffering from PTSD! LOL!


message 43: by Mandy (new)

Mandy Beyers (MandyBeyers) | 739 comments Congrats on your upcoming wedding, Sarah!

Sounds like you are going to have a busy week. Best wishes on your coming nuptials.


message 45: by Dee, Moderator (new)

Dee (austhokie) | 7171 comments finished up Go Fetch!, which comes after Pack Challenge...have to admit when I read Pack Challenge it was ok, but not great...but I have a policy to give a series/author at least 2 books before I give up and so glad I did...loved this one...Miki was a hoot and Conall...well, yum!


message 46: by Mandy (new)

Mandy Beyers (MandyBeyers) | 739 comments Re-read Pack Challenge - 3.5 stars - I find it quite funny and am having to force myself NOT to buy Go Fetch! right now since most people seem to think it's better. (No, no, too many books on Mt. TBR - must NOT buy another book right now...)!

Pack Challenge (Magnus Pack, #1) by Shelly Laurenston

Miss | 330 comments Finished First Drop of Crimson 12/25 - liked it a lot, 4 stars.
