Edited: if you want to VOTE on our MAY GROUP READ please do so before 31st March when the POLL closes (to give us all time to get the books)

Anyone interested in setting up a group read for May? Make suggestions about what book(s) we should read below, doing this in good time so people know what book and can get hold of it. We'll take if vote if there are too many suggestions!!

Edited 13 March
there are a few suggestions below so I will set up a poll at the end of the week. So if the book you want to nominate is not already on the provisional poll list then get nominating!! (We will poll max of 6 books - any further nomiations can go in for June)

Quick question, I am probably going to set this up so we have one book as the group read, does everyone agree with this? If the book you want to read does not come out top of the poll we could always set up mini read for it?

So far we have:
1. Nightkeepers by Jessica Andersen
2. A Kiss of Shadows (Meredith Gentry, #1) by Laurell K Hamilton
3. Kiss of Midnight by Lara Adrian
4. .Some Girls Bite by Chloe Neill
5.
6

We'll go to poll with the four. June nominations open soon if you have ideas!

Regina (reginar) Well Lover Mine is being released at the end of April and the new Sookie Stackhouse is being released the beginning of May. But I am guessing we will be chatting about these anyway!

I would like to suggest something for May

Nightkeepers (Final Prophecy, #1) by Jessica Andersen by Jessica Andersen

it's the first book in her Final Prophecy series it sounds like something new that might be nice for a change of pace from Vampires,Shifters and the like. It's still paranormal just something different from what I've been reading lately!

Kat, Night Keepers sounds like it should be good! Will definitely add that to the list.

I'd like to add A Kiss of Shadows (Meredith Gentry, #1)  by Laurell K. Hamilton by Laurell K Hamilton into the mix. I will be reading this anyway but though others might like to join me - or has everyone read it? If so I'll start off a discussion thread when I've read it anyway and we can chat! (could make it a mini extra read?)

Will leave suggestions open for a while yet, but hopefully we will have decided on a group read for May by early April to give us all time to get hold of the book!!

Heather B (heatherbenson) Some that I would like to read are:

Kiss of Midnight (Midnight Breed, #1) by Lara Adrian
Kiss of Midnight by Lara Adrian
He watches her from across the crowded dance club, a sensual black-haired stranger who stirs Gabrielle Maxwell’s deepest fantasies. But nothing about this night—or this man—is what it seems. For when Gabrielle witnesses a murder outside the club, reality shifts into something dark and deadly. In that shattering instant she is thrust into a realm she never knew existed—a realm where vampires stalk the shadows and a blood war is set to ignite.

Lucan Thorne despises the violence carried out by his lawless brethren. A vampire himself, Lucan is a Breed warrior, sworn to protect his kind—and the unwitting humans existing alongside them—from the mounting threat of the Rogues. Lucan cannot risk binding himself to a mortal woman, but when Gabrielle is targeted by his enemies, he has no choice but to bring her into the dark underworld he commands.

Here, in the arms of the Breed’s formidable leader, Gabrielle will confront an extraordinary destiny of danger, seduction, and the darkest pleasures of all. . . .

Some Girls Bite (Chicagoland Vampires, #1) by Chloe Neill
Some Girls Bite by Chloe Neill
First in a brand new series about a Chicago graduate student’s introduction into a society of vampires.

Sure, the life of a graduate student wasn’t exactly glamorous, but it was Merit’s. She was doing fine until a rogue vampire attacked her. But he only got a sip before he was scared away by another bloodsucker—and this one decided the best way to save her life was to make her the walking undead.

Turns out her savior was the master vampire of Cadogan House. Now she’s traded sweating over her thesis for learning to fit in at a Hyde Park mansion full of vamps loyal to Ethan “Lord o’ the Manor” Sullivan. Of course, as a tall, green-eyed, four-hundred- year-old vampire, he has centuries’ worth of charm, but unfortunately he expects her gratitude— and servitude. But an inconvenient sunlight allergy and Ethan’s attitude are the least of her concerns. Someone’s still out to get her. Her initiation into Chicago’s nightlife may be the first skirmish in a war—and there will be blood.

Halfway to the Grave (Night Huntress, #1) by Jeaniene Frost
Halfway to the Grave by Jeaniene Frost
Flirting with the grave...
Half-vampire Catherine Crawfield is going after the undead with a vengeance, hoping that one of these deadbeats is her father--the one responsible for ruining her mother's life. Then she's captured by Bones, a vampire bounty hunter, and is forced into an unholy partnership.

In exchange for finding her father, Cat agrees to train with the sexy night stalker until her battle reflexes are as sharp as his fangs. She's amazed she doesn't end up as his dinner--are there actually good vampires? Pretty soon Bones will have her convinced that being half-dead doesn't have to be all bad. But before she can enjoy her new found status as kick-ass demon hunter, Cat and Bones are pursued by a group of killers. Now Cat will have to choose a side . . . and Bones is turning out to be as tempting as any man with a heartbeat.

First Drop of Crimson (Night Huntress World, #1) by Jeaniene Frost
First Drop of Crimson by Jeaniene Frost
The night is not safe for mortals. Denise MacGregor knows all too well what lurks in the shadows - her best friend is half-vampire Cat Crawfield - and she has already lost more than the average human could bear. But her family's dark past is wrapped in secrets and shrouded in darkness - and a demon shapeshifter has marked Denise as prey. Now her survival depends on an immortal who craves a taste of her.

He is Spade, a powerful, mysterious vampire who has walked the earth for centuries and is now duty-bound to protect this endangered, alluring human - even if it means destroying his own kind. Denise may arouse his deepest hungers, but Spade knows he must fight his urge to have her as they face the demon nightmare together...

Because once the first drop of crimson falls, they will both be lost.

Night Runner A Novel by Max Turner
Night Runner: A Novel by Max Turner
For Zack Thomson, life in the Nicholls Ward wasn't so bad. After his parents died, he developed strange allergies, and the mental institution was the only place where he could be properly looked after. As strange as it was, it was home. But that all changes the night a stranger on a Harley crashes through the front doors and tells him to run. Along with his best friend Charlie and a girl he may or may not be falling in love with, Zack does just that: run. Under the cover of night, hiding amongst the shadows, he races for the truth.

All of your choices look good, I think we will have to start our list for June so we can put one on there too!!

I might add a second one of your books to the poll later if that is okay?

Lover Mine by J R Ward

I know lots of us will be reading this in May!! Do you want it adding as an additional group read to the above one on the poll? We will of course have a discussion thread about the book! :)

The reason I have not included it in the poll is because chances are it would win! (please stick with me a moment!) So anyone who has not already read the rest of the series would not easily be able to join in the group read and I want as many people as possible to be able to take part in it!

Does that make sense to people or am I just burbling??

Ya that makes sense, I would definietly read it if I could get all the others I haven't read yet finished but I don't think that I will. I think that it's a good idea to add it as an extra group read.

I'm going to put the poll up tomorrow (17th March) so if you have a nomination you want included post it now! Otherwise the poll will go live tomorrow and I'll also start a nomination thread for June.
