Aoibhínn (aoibhinn) I just finished reading The Exorcist by William Peter Blatty by William Peter Blatty. The Exorcist is an engrossing, gripping, disturbing and well-written supernatural tale. I really enjoyed this novel. I thought the author's writing style was excellent. I found it very hard to put this book down for long. I just had to know what happened next even though I've seen the movie half a dozen times! It didn't frighten me to death but it did scare me a good bit! Even though the book is over forty years old, except for a bit of seventies slang here and there, it really isn't dated at all. The Exorcist is one of the best horror novels that I've read in a long time. Even if you've already seen the movie a hundred times I'd recommend reading the novel as it's a lot better than the movie!

Now I'm about to start Defending Jacob by William Landay by William Landay.


message 27: by Jonetta (new)

Jonetta (ejaygirl) I finished Inertia Inertia (Impulse, #1) by Amelia C. Gormley by Amelia C. Gormley, a m/m contemporary romance that's wonderfully written.

message 31: by Jaret (new)

Jaret I finished Murder in the Marais (Aimee Leduc Investigations, #1) by Cara Black Murder in the Marais. It was a good premise, but the writing was poor.


Kris - My Novelesque Life (mynovelesquelife) I have finished The Other Queen (The Tudor, #6) by Philippa Gregory and liked it.


message 33: by Jean (new)

Jean (otakumom) I just finished the first 6 books from the Fallen Angel Series by Mary Jo Putney. I enjoyed them a lot. Some more than others but overall great action thriller and gothic themes that MJP manages to pull off.

Aoibhínn (aoibhinn) I've finished reading Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford by Jamie Ford last night. I really loved this book! Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet is a beautiful, fascinating, tender and moving story from beginning to end. Like the title suggests, the story is such a bitter-sweet tale, heartbreaking at times and so warm and sweet in others.All the characters were vivid, well-developed and realistic. I really loved the characters of Henry, Keiko and Sheldon, and really cared about what happened to them. I found it really hard to put this novel down and I look forward to reading more from this author! I gave this novel 5 Stars!

Kris - My Novelesque Life (mynovelesquelife) I finished listening to City of Glass (The Mortal Instruments, #3) by Cassandra Clare and really liked it. This series reminds me of Harry Potter in that as the series continues it begins to get more detailed and absorbing. It grows with the reader. I also finished When She Was Wicked (Honeycote, #1) by Anne Barton by Anne Barton - this is the first in a series by a new author. It was really enjoyable.


Kris - My Novelesque Life (mynovelesquelife) I finished Dance of the Gods (Circle Trilogy, #2) by Nora Roberts but was not as absorbed in the story as the first book. I think that might be because it's been a while since I read first book.


message 40: by Jean (new)

Jean (otakumom) I finished A Daring Deception and totally loved it. Intrigue and female agents.
A Daring Deception by Cindy Holbrook

I also finished my first book in my foray with NetGalley and totally loved that book too... Maya Bank's second novel in the Montgomery and Armstrong series, Highlander Most Wanted. Tortured heroine in feudal Scotland. Banks really pulled it off especially with the emotion turmoil.

Highlander Most Wanted (The Montgomerys and Armstrongs, #2) by Maya Banks


message 41: by Jaret (new)

Jaret I just finished The Man in the Brown Suit The Man in the Brown Suit by Agatha Christie . It's a new favorite of mine!


message 42: by Mary (new)

Mary | 100 comments I've just finished The Bourne Identity The Bourne Identity (Jason Bourne, #1) by Robert Ludlum .


message 43: by Jaret (new)

Jaret I just finished I is for Innocent I is for Innocent (Kinsey Millhone, #9) by Sue Grafton . My favorite in the Kinsey Milhone series so far.


message 44: by Jean (new)

Jean (otakumom) I just finished The Spy's Bride
The Spy's Bride by Lynn Collum

and The Wicked Lover
The Wicked Lover (Georgian, #2) by Julia Ross

I was disappointed with The Spy's Bride but did enjoy The Wicked Lover though the cat and mouse action dragged and the last half of the book happened too quick.


message 45: by Lady ♥ Belleza (new)

Lady ♥ Belleza (bella_foxx) Just finished BTK. What a freaking awesome book. And I never say awesome.


message 46: by Jean (new)

Jean (otakumom) I just finished reading Edge of Dawn, the 11th book in the Midnight Breed series. I almost gave up on the series but glad I was able to get an advanced copy of the book. It was really good. I was so engrossed, I couldn't put it down.

Edge of Dawn (Midnight Breed, #11) by Lara Adrian


message 47: by Jaret (new)

Jaret I just finished the first in a new-to-me cozy series Murder in Store Murder in Store by D.C. Brod . I loved the male perspective in this one.


message 48: by Jonetta (new)

Jonetta (ejaygirl) I've been away too long but have read some really good books. I finished the second book in the Impulse m/m contemporary romance series, Acceleration Acceleration (Impulse, #2) by Amelia C. Gormley by Amelia C. Gormley. I can't wait for the third book in the series. Both books are reviewed on The Book Nympho blog today.


message 49: by Jonetta (new)

Jonetta (ejaygirl) Others I've read the last two weeks include Rules Of Prey (Lucas Davenport, #1) by John Sandford , my first in the series. I liked the story and I'm still trying to adjust to the main character, Lucas Davenport.

I also read the sixth book in the Myron Bolitar series, The Final Detail. It was great and Myron is evolving.

I also read Overheard by Maya Banks, one of her erotic novellas. Classic Maya!

I'm trying to go back and read Kristan Higgins' entire bibliography as she's become a favorite. I recently finished Just One Of The Guys Just One Of The Guys by Kristan Higgins and cannot remember laughing out loud and crying so much in the same book.


message 50: by Jonetta (new)

Jonetta (ejaygirl) Lastly, I read the next book in Brenda Novak's Whiskey Creek series, When Summer Comes (Whiskey Creek, #3) by Brenda Novak When Summer Comes, and loved it. If you haven't started this series and like contemporary romance you should consider adding this to your shelf.

I finished listening to an older title by Linda Howard, All the Queen's Men All the Queen's Men (John Medina, #2) by Linda Howard , the second book in her CIA'S Spies series and really enjoyed it.
