message 22: by Chasidy (new)

Chasidy | 32 comments Holy damn!! I saw that list and I was like, "what?!" Then I realized it was over several months and my list would probably be the exact same way. I noticed you enjoy series books. So do I! I can't stand falling in-love with a character and then them just dropping off the face of the earth. Btw, Suzanne, you need to get on that BDB train PRONTO!!


Amber I. (AwesomeSauce Book Club) (awesomesaucebookclub) | 9 comments The only Nora books I have read are Blood Brothers series I think that's the series name it has The Hollow Pagan Stone and man it I can't think of it.. its been a long day.


message 24: by Suzanne (new)

Suzanne (SuzanneRamos) | 18 comments I plan on getting on the BDB train very, very soon...I've heard soooooooooooooooooo many people say good things about it :)


message 25: by Suzanne (new)

Suzanne (SuzanneRamos) | 18 comments The Blood Brothers Series is a good one but my favorite series of her is the Key series (Key of Light, Key of Knowledge and Key of Valor)...hope you check these out, cause I found them to be awesome :)


Amber I. (AwesomeSauce Book Club) (awesomesaucebookclub) | 9 comments I am on the 3rd Succubus book and they are really good. Have you read Richelles Dark Swan books there are two Storm Born and Thorn Queen so so good.

I think I am going to look into more Nora Roberts book, I like a lot of the paranormal things do her books have that, if so any recommendations?

I looked at my amazon acct. And so far in the year 2010 I have bought 50 books, but I got more than that some were bday gifts.


message 27: by Wendy T (new)

Wendy T It's to bad you ladies don't live closer. My Relay for Life team is having a yard sale on Saturday and I'm donating all my books (9 bins of books that I have read) to the sale. I feel that I probably won't re-read any of the books and the money is going to a good cause Cancer. For me this is hitting home right now as my dad was just diagnosed last week with lung cancer and is scheduled within the next two weeks to have one lung removed.

OMG Wendy I am so sorry to hear about your dad. I hope his surgery goes well!! My dad died of the BIG C and that is why I quit smoking 4 1/2 yrs. ago and do whatever I can for Relay for Life. HHHHHMMM!! We don't have the book sale for Relay for Life. I might bring that one up to the committee next year..smiles.


message 31: by Debi (new)

Debi (DebJM51) | 445 comments Suzanne I am not sure how many books I have bought over the last several months..but I am sure if I haven't past you I really close to what you have there..smiles.

Love Janet Evanovich and been a fan of
Barbara Michaels since I read Houses of Stone. I just bought The Other Daughter by Lisa Gardner, and a few of Jude Deverauxbooks lately. And planning on trying out P.C. Cast House of Nights Series!!!

Wendy, how I wish I lived closer to you! I could add a few more books to my ever growing library. I am sorry to hear about your father. My mother was diagnosed with breast cancer last year. Thankfully they found it early and has recently finished with her treatment. My prayers are with you!

Wendy, my heart goes out to you and your family. I pray that all goes well with your Dad's surgery. That is awesome that you're donating your books for a great cause. I try to support it every year. Take care!


message 41: by Suzanne (new)

Suzanne (SuzanneRamos) | 18 comments Wendy T, I will definitely keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers *hugs*

All of you guys are really tempting me to drop the books I'm reading now and pick up the first BDB book!!!I may just have to do that!!!

I can vouch for the In the Garden trilogy by Nora Roberts...it was awesome...haven't read the Circle trilogy or the Three Sisters Island series, but I believe I have them all...if not, I will definitely have to stock up!!!


message 42: by Chasidy (new)

Chasidy | 32 comments Suzanne drop the book you're reading now and grab Dark Lover pronto! Some people are a little dissapointed with the first one (I wasn't) but trust me, they keep getting better... and more steamy!
