Jane (PS) | 19823 comments Welcome to the 2013 buddy read of the books written by J.R. Ward.

We started with a list of 47 nominated authors. This was culled down through voting to the Top 11 authors. 184 members voted in our final voting round. Of them, 54 voted to buddy-read the books written by J.R. Ward during 2013.

It is now over to the interested members to work out which books you want to read (or reread).

Thanks to all the members who participated in this process!

I would suggest that the group read the books in order but that you could also read her other books as desired...

I'll put the books of the Black Dagger Brotherhood in the second post (in order) along with JR's other books for reference purposes.

message 14: by Sandra J (new)

Sandra J Weaver (sandraweaver) | 366 comments I've read and enjoyed four of the BDB books though I have all but the last one in the stash. Maybe I'll actually get through them all in a buddy read.

;)


message 20: by Patricia (new)

Patricia Solla (tedebear1998) | 244 comments I'm in for starting with Dark Lover. It's the only book I read (in August) and I wouldn't mind rereading it and discussing with the group.

Debbie,

You can read anything written by her for this challenge. No need to stick to the BDB :)


message 30: by Debbie (new)

Debbie  (db_debber) | 2757 comments Fantastic, I am all caught up on the BDB series - really enjoyed it.
Thanks Fran it's been a long time - I have missed all my GR friends :)


message 31: by Dee (new)

Dee (austhokie) | 7316 comments we'll get them up - but she also has stand-alone romances written under the name Jessica Bird - if you need a break from BDB or have read them all


FionaBluesBookCafe (ladykati) | 79 comments Jane (PS) wrote: "I would suggest that the group read the books in order however you can also read JR's books, commenting without spoilers, as desired...

Black Dagger Brotherhood

1. Dark Lover
2. Lover Eternal
3. ..."


You should really read Wrath and the Letter Opener before Father Mine: Zsadist and Bella's Story if you haven't read them.

Macwolf01 [Elise] (macwolf01) | 1012 comments Quick question J.R. Ward originally wrote under her maiden name Jessica Bird, several of these books (6 I believe) are being re-released any possibility of adding them to the list of readable books??

message 37: by Jane (PS), Moderator (new)

Jane (PS) | 19823 comments Sorry Elise - I'm adding Jessica Bird's books this evening when I get time. (Hopefully now depending on my husband's movements...)

I'm reading D. Lover now, MK. It's good, and I'm gladd there is a glossary of terms in the front of the book. Many new vampire terms for me to learn.


message 39: by Lirajean (new)

Lirajean | 60 comments I'm new to this group but I recognize some names from other groups so I'm going to try this challenge.

I've read the books but have been planning to re-read them all so it will be fun to do with others. JRW is really an awesome writer.

It is confusing! Hopefully since these will all be rereads for me I won't have the issues I had when I first read them a few years ago. I started these before I got my Kindle so it was easy to refer back when necessary! I am really looking forward to going back to the beginning and visiting the brothers all over again!


message 41: by Becca (new)

Becca (ladybeccaboo) | 40 comments Loved Dark Lover... looking forward to this.


Macwolf01 [Elise] (macwolf01) | 1012 comments No worries Jane(PS) I just wanted to join in with some of those as I'm caught up on the BDB series. Thanks E

I'll start with An Unforgettable Lady (An Unforgettable Lady, #1) by J.R. Ward


message 43: by Melody (new)

Melody Litzinger | 6 comments I am in I will start when u get to Lover at Last that should be released in March. I have already read the other BDB books.


message 44: by Daffodil (new)

Daffodil (daffodil--ripcranberry) | 1058 comments I'm in. I started BDB when it first came out and dropped it after a few books. I keep saying I need to reread the first ones and finish it out, so this is the perfect reason.

I'll be starting with a reread of Dark Lover.


message 45: by Brittany Lynn (new)

Brittany Lynn  | 56 comments I'll jump in! I've already read the first six of the Black Dagger Brotherhood books, currently reading number seven. I hope that is ok!


message 46: by Valerie (new)

Valerie | 295 comments I'm in. I am always up for a re-read of all BDB books before a new release.


message 47: by Joyce (new)

Joyce (eternity21) | 717 comments I'm in. I'm about up to five in the BDB series and two in the Fallen Angels series. I might just re-read the first couple via audio book as I did the last book in audio format and really enjoyed it that way.


message 48: by Lauren (new)

Lauren (mrslaurenberry) I haven't read any of the BDB books before, but they do seem interesting. I will give Dark Lover a go and see how I find it.


message 49: by Monica (new)

Monica (monie1278) | 7 comments I am in. There a few that I have not read but I loved the BDB series that I might just re-read them again.


message 50: by Roxy (new)

Roxy (roxym) | 208 comments I'm in. I've read the first five BDB books, so I will continue.
