A. Try Something New"


Thanks for the recommendations, Ladykati -
I'm going with Judgment in Death & perhaps also Kiss of Fire, which I've put in challenges for the past 3 months & then replaced with something newer!

I like Connie Brockway, so I don't know why I keep putting off reading All Through the Night, so thanks for the reminder there. And if I have time, I may pick up Halfway to the Grave. Jeanine Frost would be a new author to me.

Ari (moochew12) | 159 comments Ello again Delicious Dee!
I changed most of the picks, but some I left the same. Hopefully this take two is better, but if not third's always a charm!
A.Try Something New
1. New Author:
Dream Boy by Jim G.
2. New Series:
Tiger Eye by Marjorie M. Liu. It’d be interesting to read her stuff she’s a newer and younger author.
3. New Genre:
A Northern Light. You haven’t read too much young adult. I think you might enjoy this.
B. Better You - From their TBR
1. Lose Weight:
Fishing for Stars. Hopefully, you’ve not read this. Even longer than the other one. Muwhahaha. 602 pages.
2. Save Money:
The Kite Runner. Ok, so I kinda cheated. I didn’t read this yet, but it has good ratings and I own it. If you pick this, then I’ll read it too.
3. Get Organized:.
Stolen by Kelly Armstrong. Let me know if maybe you read this, but didn’t add it.
C. Enjoy Life More
I’m keeping these the same. They seem “fun.”
1.Bitter in the Mouth: A Novel.
2.Inked.

Thank you very much for the recs, Selena! They all seem very interesting. I think I'm going to go with Pack Challenge. It's a Kindle freebie & I'm always looking for an excuse to try out my new ereader! =) I'll also make a note to read the 2nd book in the Dragon Kin series first, since in your opinion, it's better than About a Dragon. Again, thanks!

Rebecca (bexsi) | 356 comments Hi Moondust, Here are my picks for you:

A. Try Something New
1. New Author: Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater this is an exceptional novel. I hope you like it as much as me.

2. New Series: Marked by P.C. Cast This is a good start to a good series.

3. New Genre: The Queen's Fool by Philippa Gregory This 'historical fiction' book was fab.

B. Better You - From their TBR
1. Lose Weight: Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell I have not read this book myself yet but will do in the new year.

2. Save Money: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Seth Grahame-Smith It was a great concept and very funny

3. Get Organized:
Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë

C. Enjoy Life More
1. The Summoning by Kelley Armstrong The plot was great, characters were great and I would reccomend this book to people who want a light fantasy read.
2. A Quick Bite by Lynsay Sands A great tale which you can sink your fangs into!

Shiver (The Wolves of Mercy Falls, #1) Marked (House of Night, #1) The Queen's Fool Gone With the Wind Pride and Prejudice and Zombies Wuthering Heights The Summoning (Darkest Powers, #1) A Quick Bite (Argeneau, #1)

Ashley♥Alexis | 309 comments Hey Katie!!!
Normally I would have posted sooner but these suggestions required a bit more work =p Hope you like them.

A. Try Something New
1. New Author:The Pleasure Slave by Gena Showalter, i recently discovered Gena Showalter and I really enjoy her, thought i'd share.
2. New Series: Carpathians Series by Christine Feehan. I've read 8/20 so far. I've loved every book. It starts with Dark Prince
3. New genrePride and Prejudice and Zombies by Seth Grahame-Smith

B. Better You - F
1. Lose Weight: Lover Avenged by J.R Ward
2. Save Money:Covet by J.R Ward
3. Get Organized: Corralled by Lorelei James has been on your shelf since April. Maybe it's time you checked it out =p

C. Enjoy Life More
1: Burning Wild by Christine Feehan. This is the 3rd book in the series. each book is stand alone so it's ok just to pick it up out of order, the only thing they have in common is the fact that its about shape-shifters. I read this last week and that was before i knew what D/s meant...oh my this book was interesting. haha.

2: Dead until Dark by Charlaine Harris. I'm a sucker for Sookie Stackhouse novels. I'm kinda disgusted that Harris is drawing it out like this but of course I'll read every one of them.

Rachel | 92 comments Annvelwis, after viewing your shelves I think it is safe to say you have definitely read a lot more than me, however we did have quite a few books in common and seem to give similar ratings, so hopefully I'll be able to recommend something that interests you. :)

1. New Author: Blue Aspen
2. New Series: Black Ice, Hush, Hush
3. New Genre: Veronika Decides to Die

Blue Aspen Black Ice (Ice, #1) Hush, Hush (Hush, Hush, #1) Veronika Decides to Die

Beautiful Darkness (Caster Chronicles, #2) Northern Lights Glass Houses (The Morganville Vampires, #1)

1. The Only Alien on the Planet
2. A Certain Slant of Light

The Only Alien on the Planet A Certain Slant of Light

Sorry, I listed an extra one cause I couldn't decide which one to post so I just picked them both! ;) I hope at least one appeals to you. Happy reading. :)


Katie | 1075 comments hey ashleyalexis~

i've been doing so much m/m reading lately that i've lost touch with the m/f world. i love finding new authors and series and this challenge is PERFECT for that. i know my shelves consist of mainly m/m, so thank you for wading through all that and coming up with so many great suggestions without their aid. i'm going to go with 'the pleasure slave' and 'dark prince'. hopefully i get to a couple of the others, too, but you never know :)


Britta (Quintessensical) Woops! This challenge almost slipped my mind! Glad I remembered :D

K. ... You and I are very different. very different.. ._. And you don't have a lot on your list either, but I will do my very best to pick you something that you might enjoy! (:
I'll have your picks by tonight!


Jim son of Jim (formerly PhotoJim) (Jim_formerly_Photojim) | 5294 comments Q: What did the one ocean say to the other ocean?
A: Nothing. They just waved.

Since I don't have picks yet, I'm forced to post 5th grade humor. Maybe I give myself too much credit. That might be a 3rd grade joke. I told it to my niece while visiting with family. She's in 5th grade and she laughed. Maybe somebody could try it out on a 3rd grader and we could find out where that joke really lies. Then again, the humor might be dependent on sex or life experiences. Maybe only 5th grade girls and 41 YO men find the joke amusing. Do you have to have seen an ocean to understand it? Maybe the joke would be funnier if it was something other than oceans. How about "Q: What did the first oscilloscope say to the second oscilloscope?" Does the joke change when using a machine that defines and displays wave shape as opposed to just having waves as a characteristic? Probably most 5th grade girls wouldn't know much about oscilloscopes so the target audience would certainly shrink. Maybe the joke could be altered to have something to do with hair or something else with a natural wave that would change the target again. But not all hair has waves. Not all oceans have waves for that matter. On Earth they do as it is a function of gravity with our moon. You know this is just a stream of consciousness ramble of what I'm thinking while I am trying to be patient waiting for recommendations. Patience is a virtue. Virtue is trying to be morally excellent.


message 212: by D.G. (new)

D.G. | 3703 comments LOL, Jim! Patience is a virtue! I haven't gotten mine either.

I'm sure that if I tell that joke to my 50 YO husband, he'll laugh. :p

While I'm pretending to work today (I'm the only person in the office from my department), I'll send reminders to those that haven't made their picks. :)

Thank you so much for wonderful picks. I'll try to get my hands on The Only Alien on the Planet by Kristen D. Randle but I'm not sure if I'll manage to do that until the end of the month. So, my backup plan would be either Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick (it waits for me to read it for so long now!) or Beautiful Darkness by Kami Garcia.
Oh, and you're second person thet recommends me Anne Stuart. I should probably check her out too :D
Thanks!

I think I will read Covet this month, and Hunger Games if I can fit it in. :)


Debbie  (onyx95) | 2757 comments Annie, I just got internet access back and checked in to find some great recommendations. Thanks.
I will probably go with one of the ones from the TBR selections. It is a real toss up between Graceling and Winter Moon.

A. A towel!


message 220: by Kami (last edited Dec 30, 2010 10:06AM) (new)

Kami (aidansmama) | 890 comments My son is five and he usually makes up jokes. He'll say "knock knock" I'll say "Who's there?" And then he'll say "Orange." And then start laughing hysterically. I'll try to tell him that he's supposed to say the punch line "Orange you glad I didn't say banana." Before laughing hysterically. But just saying "Orange" is enough for him to get a fit of giggles.

Hi Cassie, Thanks for the great picks I'll either read Evernight or A Game of Thrones!

That sounds like my house - my 3 y.o. just hasn't quite got the point of knock-knock jokes yet, but tries to copy the older kids. They all like the impatient cow joke, so try to make up their own version!

Kerste | 144 comments I tried this joke on my 5 year old and she looked at me a little quizzically and said, "They waved...with their waves?" while she made the motion of the waves rolling with her hand.

I nodded and she said, "Oh." Like, okay, that makes sense.

Now I'm stuck in a never ending..."what did the (fill in the blank) say to the other (fill in the blank)?" conversation. The answers still aren't funny, only serious.

Sigh. Hope my books are available at the library soon.

message 233: by Leah (new)

Leah No problem! :)


message 234: by Leah (new)

Leah D.G., I'm glad to have been chosen to pick for you since I've known you a little while and I can, hopefully, make some good picks for you. So, here you go...

A. Try Something New
1. New Author:
This Lullaby by Sarah Dessen - I noticed you've only read a little Young Adult and I don't read too much of it myself, but Sarah Dessen is one of my favorite YA writers. She writes teenagers well and I don't think that she makes them out to be complete idiots. She also has them dealing with real, everyday situations. Anyway, this is my favorite book by her and if you read it I hope you'll like it.

2. New Series: Born of Night by Sherrilyn Kenyon - The League is a great series, sometimes I think it's my favorite of SK's series. Anyway, this is a wonderful book and I read it in about 1-2 days the first time. I think you will enjoy it. It's got a huge romance element but I also like the fact that it's in another universe and it's not about "human beings." I mean, they aren't aliens or anything, but they have different races that aren't "human."

3. New Genre: Halfway to the Grave by Jeaniene Frost - You don't have an Urban Fantasy shelf and it doesn't look like you really read much of it. From what I can tell. You also have this on your TBR list, so I figure you want to read it since it's there. Welcome to the wonderful world of Disney Urban Fantasy!

B. Better You
1. Lose Weight:
War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy - Okay, sorry, I had to put this because you specifically asked your pickee not to pick it for you. Although, it is the biggest book on your TBR shelf! My real choice for you, though, is The Fiery Cross by Diana Gabaldon - This is the second biggest book on your TBR shelf. I haven't read it but since you seemed to like the first four, you might as well read the fifth one, right?

2. Save Money: Sweet Talk by Susan Mallery - This is the only book on your TBR shelf that I have read. Of course, I love Susan Mallery so I probably would have chosen it anyway! I don't think this is her best series but it's a good one.

3. Get Organized: Don Quijote de la Mancha I by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra - This has been on your TBR shelf the longest. Since July 21, 2007! Maybe it's about time you read it, eh?

C. Enjoy Life More
1.
Reckless by Anne Stuart - I haven't read this series yet but everyone seems to love it. You've read the first one and gave it three stars. Maybe the second one will be better for you?

2. The Warlord Wants Forever by Kresley Cole - You haven't read anything by her and I think that this novella is a nice, short, fun read. It's the intro to the Immortals After Dark series, which is one of my favorites.

This Lullaby Born of Night (The League, #1) Halfway to the Grave (Night Huntress, #1) War and Peace The Fiery Cross (Outlander, #5) Sweet Talk (Bakery Sisters #1) Don Quijote de la Mancha I Reckless (The House of Rohan, #2) The Warlord Wants Forever (Immortals After Dark, #1)

LOLOLOL, Leah! Thanks for the laugh and thanks for the great recommendations!

This Lullaby sounds really good and I already requested it from the library. Let's see if it gets here before the end of the month! If not, most likely I'll read either Halfway to the Grave, Sweet Talk or Reckless. I've read so many good things about Bones so I'm looking forward to that. I think the only UF I've read is the Mercy Thompson series which I have in the paranormal shelf (I just don't want to bother with another shelf, LOL!)

I'm planning to read The Fiery Cross and either War and Peace or Don Quijote this year. But most likely I won't start now as and I'm already planning to read a different 700+ pg book this month. Maybe in February! :)

Leah LMAO, no problem, D.G. When I saw War and Peace on your shelf, I jus HAD to, LOL. This Lullaby is really great and I hope you'll enjoy it when you read it; I'll look forward to your review! Bones...he's...oh, he's just great. You'll love him if you like nothing else about the book, LOL. And I completely understand about not wanting to bother with another shelf! LOL. Good Lord, woman, what's up with all the freaking ginormous books?! I do commend you for even bothering to think about reading them, LOL. I hope you like all the picks you read :D

D.G. | 3703 comments Lady Leah *Silk Desire* Westcliff wrote: "Good Lord, woman, what's up with all the freaking ginormous books?!"

LOL! I'm a bit afraid of big books so I always put them aside to read for later. The funny thing is that when I finally read them I say...this book was great...why did it take me so long to read it, LOL!

Maybe I'll do with W&P the same I did with Montecristo. Once I got my iPod Touch and I got the Classics app, I challenged myself to read a chapter a day (the book has 111 chapters unabridged) but I read it in less than 2 months because the book was so exciting.


message 241: by D.G. (new)

D.G. | 3703 comments Yikes! I just checked and W&P has almost 400 chapters! That may take me more than a year to read if I read a chapter a day. :)


Jim son of Jim (formerly PhotoJim) (Jim_formerly_Photojim) | 5294 comments Maybe so, but each chapter is only 50 pages or so.

Annie (themadnessofhamsters) Hi D.G. - I'll just add to lady Leah's rec of Sarah Dessen. She is wonderful.

I lent The Truth about Forever to my sister (nearly 50 at the time). She was wondering what the hell I was doing, lending her such a *pink* book. But, she trusted me - and loved it.

50 pages a chapter!! That can't be...it would mean the book has over 15K pages!

Thanks Debbie. I completely understand the internet thing. I've just changed providers and am supposed to have access. I don't. So, my access is work-dependent at the moment.

Anyway - Graceling is great - action, adventure, touch of fantasy. But many pages, and a storyline that requires brain.
Winter Moon, on the other hand, is a novella collection. So good for days with little brain.

And, that's why I read so many anthologies - sometimes sustaining a commitment to a whole novel just isn't possible. :)

D.G. | 3703 comments It's now 5pm so I can leave work. :) Meanwhile, I'll leave you with an update.

80% of the players have picks. :)

I sent a message to everybody I could (meaning, those that had public profiles or had the messaging option enabled) to remind them to post their picks. Hopefully most people would check in the next day or so...if not, I'll do a remix on Sunday. So please anybody that's willing to post picks, please let me know (if you volunteer, please make sure you're available on Sunday afternoon EST so the players don't have to wait longer for their picks!)


Kerste | 144 comments I could pick for someone else and I can make sure I get up and check here Sunday morning, which is Sunday afternoon EST, so folks won't have to wait.
