christine Feehan's (GhostWalkers & The Dark Series , Laurell k. Hamilton's (Anita Blake & Merry Gentry),Kim Harrison's (The Hollows), Charlaine Harris's (Sookie Stakhouse), Karan Chance's, Vicki Petterson;s, Ione's,Janet Evanovich's (plum), Gena Showalter's(Underworld), Karen Marie Moning's (fever), Mary JaniceDavidson (Queen Betsy), Lora Leigh's (Breed), Sherrilyn Kenyon's(Dark-Hunter)

If you just want to add a book cover, it is incredibly simple.

Martina the Book Fairy (book_fairy) | 442 comments I'm joining for May as well, but I think I'm going to copy Lady Oz and a few others and re-read one of my favorite series for this challenge: Celta's HeartMates Series by Robin D. Owens. I haven't counted any re-read books for any previous challenges so this will be a first for me.

2001 - HeartMate by Robin D. Owens - 5/3
2002 - Night Pleasures (Dark-Hunter #2) by Sherrilyn Kenyon
2003 - Heart Thief by Robin D. Owens - 5/5

2007 - Heart Dance by Robin D. Owens
2008 - Heart Fate by Robin D. Owens
2009 - A Drop of Red (Vampire Babylon #4) by Chris Marie Green

You'll notice a few exceptions as there was no book for this series in 2002 and the 2009 book won't be out until November. So, the 2002 & 2009 books listed above are new for me. :-)

HeartMate (Magical Love Romance) by Robin D. Owens Night Pleasures (Dark-Hunter, #3) by Sherrilyn Kenyon Heart Thief (Celta's HeartMates, Book 2) (Berkley Sensation Showcase) by Robin D.

ok, quick update on TOTALS that we've read as a group up through the end of the April Challenge (yay for Excel) Grand total is (drumroll please)---------------------------------------------------------------------
831 books so far this year for the group.

I have only read 1 book so far for this challenge--and yes, it really DID take me 4 days to read it. The trip to CostumeCon kind of kept me from reading anything. I'll post that book tomorrow. Right now I'm going to go crawl into bed.

Mel W (MelW) | 411 comments Can I just check that I'm doing this right please? I'm editing my original post with the books I've read for the challenge so far, by striking them out and noting date read. Is that okay, or do I need to copy and paste into a completely new post?

Thanks!


DarkHeart "Vehngeance" (DarkHeart) | 737 comments Yz would have to say for sure, but I tend to just copy my text and repost every time I've finished a book, or at least once between each of her updates, as I think it's easier for her to track that way.

Mel,

It used to be okay to just go back to the original post and edit it, but as more and more people participate its harder for me to go back and look for original posting, so I have requested that everybody just post a new one after every update. Then all i have to do is start counting from my last group update post. Makes sense? Hope that helps.

2009 Some Girls Bite

My 2007 book still hasn't arrived. :o(

Some Girls Bite was a first novel, and the first book in the series. Despite those 2 drawbacks it was an excellent read. lol, don't let the fact it took me 4 days to read put you off the book. I was unable to get more than a few minutes reading in for most of those 4 days, since we were away. I'm leaning on Oz to get pictures up on the web and get a link posted so you all can SEE the lovely costumes we got to get "up close and personal with". :o)

Ok everyone... it's officially the 6th for me and I haven't even STARTED! CostumeCon was awesome though!! I'm hoping to get well underway with Butcher tomorrow. I haven't a clue how I have a chance of finishing - but I'm gonna try!!!! I need to do something like add up all the pages and figure out what I need to read. LOL

But If anyone wants to see - here's the first album of costumes from Friday night's show... there's one of ME! Yup it's me in the costume I won Best in Show at Ravencon for. Mom (Ann) and I had a good time and showed a total of three costumes (Two for me and one for her) but didn't place. It was great fun though! :( http://tinyurl.com/ckprgr

This was a book that was very comic book like in its telling. No paranormal elements, strictly speaking. But we DID have--a mad scientist, super heroines, evil villians, an invisible man, a giant doll with a gun for its head, and various and sundry others. :o) And Nobody DID get the girl in the end.

Lady Ozma | 454 comments Eh speculative is speculative :) HEHE And I'd say a guy who basically got his life erased so he was like ghostly should count as paranormal :) HEHE Did you like it? The author is a crack up!

BTW everyone, I added up the Dresden books on my list... nine dresden books equals 3533 pages. I have 22 days to read that (I left in my trip next week to baltimore but took out memorial day weekend) many pages. My math tells me roughly 161 pages a day and I can finish this goal. Sheesh. I'm on page 52 of my first one. I've been trying to read for an hour and a half but 1. I'm still sleepy and 2. the older kid is harassing me nonstop.

Ann aka Iftcan (Iftcan) | 2596 comments Mod
ok all--here are a few of the costumes from the event that Oz and I went to this past weekend. She's gradually posting more and more (and more and more and ...) pictures up. These are hall costumes (that's costumes worn while wandering around and NOT up for judging) http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid...

These are the Single Pattern ones (everyone had to use the same assigned pattern, and how you made/intreprided it was what it was judged on http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid...) The person in purple swirling around is Oz. Oh--there was one "female" type costume and one "male" type. Altho people didn't necessarily stick to that when making them.


DarkHeart "Vehngeance" (DarkHeart) | 737 comments UM, I just realized you're doing a series read as well. I've got four of Kelley Armstrong's Otherworld series in my challenge, and may swap out more so I can keep reading, although I'm quite keen to read my already selected choices for 2007 and 2008 so we'll have to see.
