I forgot about Evermore! I read that too and liked it!

Jo I liked it too :) I think Ever was a really well written character and easy to like

Lisbeth Salander is becoming one of my favorite literary characters. She's up there with Jane Eyre, Elizabeth Benet and Severus Snape!

Melissa Of course, all but one of these titles is from an established series of books that I love.

Deathwish by Rob Thurman

Twenties Girl A Novel by Sophie Kinsella
You're the One that I Haunt by Terri Garey
Destined for an Early Grave by Jeaniene Frost
Dreamfever by Karen Marie Moning
Thorn Queen by Richelle Mead
The Eternal Prison by Jeff Somers
As Shadows Fade by Colleen Gleason

Oneirae Dreamfever
A Duke of Her Own
Tempt Me at TwilightDrood
The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane
Dead and Gone
The Law of Nines
The Devil's Queen A Novel of Catherine de Medici
Cleopatra's Daughter
Wicked All Day

That's all for now. So many of the books I read have already been out awhile before I get to them! I'm sure I'll have maybe a couple more by the end of the year, though.

BJ Rose (BJRose) | 360 comments I'm rather surprised at how many 2009-released books I've read (19), but here are the best:

At Last Comes Love by Mary Balogh
Temptation Ridge by Robyn Carr
Branded by Fire by Nalini Singh
Stay the Night by Lynn Viehl
Hidden Currents by Christine Feehan
Between the Devil and Desire by Lorraine Heath
Then Comes Seduction by Mary Balogh
Night After Night by Kathryn Smith

Joy, I have 3 of your top ones in my TBRs, so that looks promising!

stormhawk | 1184 comments The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane - Katherine Howe
Fool: A Novel - Christopher Moore
Liberty and Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto - Mark R. Levin
Pygmy - Chuck Palahniuk
The Lost Symbol - Dan Brown

At least those are the only newly published books I seem to have read. I wasn't real thrilled with The Lost Symbol. I did see a couple that I want to check out, including The Kindly Ones and Columbine
