Yz the Whyz (whyz) | 9327 comments Starting this thread rather late, but drop by and tell us what you are reading.

For me, I'm starting May with three books:

Street Game currently reading
Undead and Unwed currently listening in my car
Ceremony in Death currently listening when at home

and slowly savoring Lover Mine.


message 2: by Terri (new)

Terri (brookfield) I am reading gypsy lady by S busbee
and plan next to read come loe a stranger by K woodiwiss.


message 3: by Rossy (new)

Rossy (naughtybookjunkie) | 2192 comments LOL! Yz, how can you keep the characters and story all straight? I would be a total mess, i can only do one book at the time.

Right now am going to start reading Wild Rain. Hopefully i'll be done with it by tonight. Then i can get started with Born of Fire (The League, #2).

Trust me, it's a talent. LOL

I remember the time when I can only read one book at a time. Can't really pinpoint when I started towards the path of bookish slutdom, but all it takes is to start another book while still in the middle of one...before I know it, I'm stringing several. It's definitely a slippery slope. *grins*


message 5: by Dee (new)

Dee (austhokie) | 7316 comments it is a very slippery slope...I more commonly term it Book ADD


message 6: by Rossy (new)

Rossy (naughtybookjunkie) | 2192 comments "bookish slutdom" I love it!LOL
I think it was Jim that asked the question of whether we're monogamous when it came to books. It must be a skill because the only way i'll start one, and then move to another is if am not in the right mood for it.


message 7: by Carolyn F. (new)

Carolyn F. | 719 comments I finished the Riley Jenson series with Bound to Shadows. Preordered the next book. I also read Vulnerable, which I absolutely loved and am now reading book #2 Wounded.


message 8: by Julianna (new)

Julianna (authorjuliannad) | 1694 comments I'm working on two right now:
The Black Dagger Brotherhood: An Insider's Guide by J.R. Ward (It's so nice to be back with the brothers.;-))
"At Ease: Stories I Tell to Friends" by Dwight D. Eisenhower (from Reader's Digest Condensed Books, Summer 1967 anthology)

message 16: by Daffodil (new)

Daffodil (daffodil--ripcranberry) | 1058 comments I'm nearly at the end of Any Given Doomsday by Lori Handeland. I'm in the middle of The Taste of Innocence by Stephanie Laurens. I'm in the first third of Satisfaction Guarenteed by Charlene Teglia. I'll probably start The Burning Lamp by Amanda Quick next because it's due back at the library in 5 days. Also at the top of my TBR stack is Maya Banks newest and I'm waiting for the mailman to bring me Dead in the Family by Charlaine Harris.

Malia is Wild Ride good? The library site tells me that it is in transit to me, so I'll probably have it by the end of the week.


message 17: by Ashley (last edited May 05, 2010 10:26AM) (new)

Ashley (ashleylaura87) | 444 comments I just finished Fantasy Lover (Dark-Hunter, #1) by Sherrilyn Kenyon and Glass Houses (The Morganville Vampires, #1) by Rachel Caine yesterday/early this morning. I was happily suprised how much I liked Fantasy Lover, I think I will read more in the series. Glass Houses was ok, hard getting used to "vampires are bad and evil" after reading so many where they are the lovers and main characters.

Right now, I just started reading Push by Sapphire , it's very difficult to read as the subject matter is so heartbreaking, but I really wanted to experience it.

Looking to start Vampire Academy (Vampire Academy, #1) by Richelle Mead later today after I finish Push.

Yay!!


message 18: by Nita (new)

Nita (gillnit) I started Crocodile on the Sandbank (Amelia Peabody, #1) by Elizabeth Peters . Enjoying it a lot.

Yes, but let go of expectations and get through the first few chapters. It's good rather than great, chuckles rather than laughs, but just-okay Jennifer Crusie is still better than most, so enjoy!

I love that one! Bookish slutdom is one of the only kinds where the bigger slut you are the better, LOL.

Melanie (melaina) | 1339 comments Finished Rapture in Death, and am now feeling a little despondent, I don't have the next book in the series yet!!! :-(( Guess I'll have to figure smt else to read.. But I love Roarke!!! ***sad sigh***
Maybe Pleasure Unbound, my next rec from Yz? Just need to figure out where it is in my shelves, lol :-)


Jim son of Jim (formerly PhotoJim) (jim_formerly_photojim) | 5294 comments Currently I'm reading... NOTHING! It's been nearly seven hours since I was reading a book. I just don't know what to do with myself. I'm sure I'll be into something before lunch. Just don't know what yet.

Thanks Cher, I finally found Claiming the Highlander in a big stack of books where it shouldn't have been; go figure. And in the interim, I finished The Warrior by Kinley MacGregor. It's another book in the same series. It's out of order, but what the heck.

I'm listening to the In Death series by J.D. Robb for what is the nth time and this time trying to do them in order which I've never done with the audios. Unfortunately, I don't have the next one, Holiday in Death, on audio and the library's copy doesn't have Peabody's voice right. This means that I'm going to have to buy it. I've been an In Death junkie for awhile now and pull one out when ever I get a longing for Eve and the gang.

Melanie, 37!! You're an inspiration.

Yz, Ceremony in Death is one of my favorites. I just finished Vengeance in Death, and that one I like even better.

nuh-uh... 37 is only the latest order... trust me, you don't want to know how many books I've ordered since Jan 1st! lol... And it's certainly an inspiration for me to work (to pay off the darn books!:-p)

Have you also read the In Deaths? I listen to the audio of the book I've just read in the car, just to make sure I didn't miss anything, lol.. I'm having a fantasy relationship with Roarke while my boyfriend's in Italy, lol...

On another note, I think I've found a solution: I just bought Magic Bleeds in town!!! I was shocked when I saw it in the bookstore in Geneva! twice the price, but what the heck, I didn't want to order it and have to wait!

Magic Bleeds (Kate Daniels, #4) by Ilona Andrews


message 50: by Jackie (new)

Jackie (jackieonl) My friend just gave me her copy of the newest House of Nights novel Burned by P.C. Cast. I can't wait to get reading!
