I've also got a lot to read too with so many checkouts from my library with a few overdue books.


Dawn (Kat N Hat) (KatNHat) | 5850 comments I recommend the best of both worlds... coffee with Kahlua, or cocoa with peppermint schnapps!


Dana (Erato) | 354 comments I have too many books to read and I want to read all of them at once! Gah! I need to get a grip...a clue...a life. I sense a trend. Hhhmmmm....

I think it's time to sit down and read The Darkest Surrender  (Lords of the Underworld, #8) by Gena Showalter tonight. I love me some LOTU!!!!

Should I drink coffee, tea, or cocoa with LOTU? This is more troublesome than the white or red wine question. Perhaps that is the issue...I just need to drink wine! Sweet! :D

Amy ~Lover of Books~ | 705 comments Finally finished Twisted (Intertwined, #3) by Gena Showalter

Not sure what I will read next.


Zakiya the Walking Butterfly (walkingbutterfly) | 700 comments LOL! I can imagine :) I don't like sugar that much, but I would have indulged them. I love having occasional sugar rushes.


Dawn (Kat N Hat) (KatNHat) | 5850 comments I am the same way off and on reading. I did manage to start a new book last night. Dark Predator (Carpathians, #22) by Christine Feehan. So far it is fairly predictable as far as the series goes. But then again there is something comfortable about predictability.

@ Zakiya, LOL, with the amount sugar my kids used to decorate them sugar was the only thing you were tasting.


Zakiya the Walking Butterfly (walkingbutterfly) | 700 comments Wow. My avergae...I don't even think I have one. Some days I go without reading anything, others I'm stuffing my nose in the book nonstop.

Oooh! What flavor?


Dawn (Kat N Hat) (KatNHat) | 5850 comments Zakiya, you are doing better then me. Four days and I've managed about 100 pages. I usually average 100 pages a day!

But I did get Halloween sugar cookies made today!

No, I have not read any other series by her yet. I own the first two books in the Lords series which is signed by her when I met her in person last year. Not sure how the Intertwined series compares with her other series. I suggest rent the first book from the library if your library has it if you aren't sure about a book instead of buying it, that is what I do.

It's fall break here, too. I have only gotten two books done. And being that one should've already been done, and the other was fluff, I'm not very happy either.

Amy, have you read any of her other books? How does that series compare? I love her lords, but am struggling to get through the first Atlantis. I am hesitant to start something else of hers.


Dawn (Kat N Hat) (KatNHat) | 5850 comments I am having book withdrawals. It is fall break here and I am not getting my free time to read with an extra kid at home during the day. I suspect I am going to fail all my October challenges. Good to see others are getting some reading done.


Zakiya the Walking Butterfly (walkingbutterfly) | 700 comments finished Water Bound (Sisters of the Heart, #1) by Christine Feehan, pretty good :D

Dana (Erato) | 354 comments The Mercy Thompson series just gets better with every book! I'm reading Bone Crossed (Mercedes Thompson, #4) by Patricia Briggs right now and it is great.


Cindy (eclecticfirefly) (Eclecticfirefly) | 113 comments I'm reading Autumn now. About halfway thru and the tension is mounting......wonder if I'll have to sleep with the lights on tonight?

Next, I need to decide on an Angels book. I have several to choose from, but the one I want to read I'm having trouble finding.....of course!

Yeah. I finished the book after I got home from seeing my grandma and a few of my relatives who I haven't seen in so long. I've started reading Dreamland (Riley Bloom, #3) by Alyson Noel last night.

Yeah my library has it


Dawn (Kat N Hat) (KatNHat) | 5850 comments MMMMM Finished, The Darkest Surrender  (Lords of the Underworld, #8) by Gena Showalter. It was great. The main story was good and there were some other points of view in there to set up future books. Ahhhhh, January won't be here soon enough to get Paris's story.

Dana don't deny the kindle or the Stridey Monster!

Gah! I have been waiting for this for so long that I forgot it had finally been published!

Hold on a minute......

OK, there. I own it now. Yeeaaaaahhhhhh Kindle! I have too many things to read this month and now my Kindle is whispering sexy Strider talk at me. (My Kindle is an icorrigible flirt!) Bad Kindle! Shhh!


Amy ~Lover of Books~ | 705 comments ❥☪LIZZ NEILL☪❥ wrote: "Was the first book good Amy?"

I really liked the first book and rated it 4 stars. The first book was about a girl who is a shapeshifter. Book two is about a guy who is battling the beast from within after him and his brother was attacked and bitten by a werewolf. I really don't know if book 1 ties in with book 2 because the main characters are different and I can't remember if the main character in book 2 was in book 1 when he got bitten like his brother. Book 3 is coming out next year called Foxfire and it is going to focus on another character who I'm not sure we were introduced to in book 1. I hope I didn't confuse you when I was trying to explain that whole thing.

I think it may have been the wrong time to read Ready Player One so I might try again another time.

Kristen  (yogamamareads) | 42 comments I've got a few "express" books from the library...so I've got to read fast.

I'm enjoying: Daughter of Smoke and Bone (Daughter of Smoke and Bone, #1) by Laini Taylor

I've got The Power of Six (Lorien Legacies, #2) by Pittacus Lore waiting for me, too.
