message 14: by Nan (last edited Nov 10, 2014 02:47PM) (new)

Nan (xxmzsmilesxx) | 84 comments So.... I think November is my dark season because I'm pretty much drawn to books involving anti-heroes/ screwed up characters/ kidnapping or abduction and just anything that have dark elements really.
So far I've read:
Nero (Made Men, #1) by Sarah Brianne Twist Me (Twist Me, #1) by Anna Zaires Keep Me (Twist Me, #2) by Anna Zaires Tears of Tess (Monsters in the Dark, #1) by Pepper Winters Quintessentially Q (Monsters in the Dark, #2) by Pepper Winters Reasonable Doubt Volume 1 (Reasonable Doubt, #1) by Whitney Gracia Williams Reasonable Doubt Volume 2 (Reasonable Doubt, #2) by Whitney Gracia Williams Reasonable Doubt Volume 3 (Reasonable Doubt, #3) by Whitney Gracia Williams

I've read PNR as well:
Mind Game (GhostWalkers #2) by Christine Feehan Night Game (GhostWalkers, #3) by Christine Feehan Kiss of Midnight (Midnight Breed, #1) by Lara Adrian

I also enjoy reading mangas because I need fluffy stuff to read lol:
The Earl and The Fairy, Vol. 04 (The Earl and the Fairy, #4) by Mizue Tani
Vampire Knight, Vol. 19 by Matsuri Hino - After 7 years this series has comes to an end and yes tears were shed LOL

Oops! I forgot to add, I've read contemporary romance as well:
Beauty Touched the Beast (Beauty, #1) by Skye Warren Beneath the Beauty (Beauty, #2) by Skye Warren Broken Beauty (Beauty, #3) by Skye Warren Beauty Becomes You (Beauty, #4) by Skye Warren
If anyone wants to read a quick book that is scorching hot. I do recommend this Beauty series, but the shortness does detract from the the realism of the plot.
