message 5: by Kelley Anne (new)

Kelley Anne | 1619 comments I don't think that it'd be bad to do it again! Come join us! I'm not sure yet how many hours I am going to be reading that day. I am starting my hours today, going to get as many as I can in and then will finish on that Sunday.

Jess | 3721 comments Well, you've both twisted my arm lol. I will read a book or two :)


message 8: by Dawn, Desperately seeking new worlds (new)

Dawn (dawnv) | 4048 comments Good Morning, I have been trouble deciding what to read. I decided I wanted to read a little non-fiction first so I am reading House of Cards by William Cohan , I have been wanting to read this book for a while.


message 9: by Dawn, Desperately seeking new worlds (new)

Dawn (dawnv) | 4048 comments So it has been a while since I checked in. I am about to take a break, but here is where I am I read about 5 chapters in House of Cards and I am halfway through Sin Undone.

Sin Undone (Demonica, #5) by Larissa Ione this book is so great!

Kelley Anne | 1619 comments Sorry! Had a bit of family drama this morning so am getting a late start! So I ended up reading 15 hours on Tuesday which leaves me 9 hours today. Time to get started! It's 2pm local time for me which means that if I read straight through I can be done by 11pm. I'll probably take an hour off for dinner though so plan to finish about midnight! I'm going to start out with a Lora Leigh book, but I just have to figure out which one. I have a ton of them on pdf format and i can't remember which one I read last! I think that I am on Megan's Mark.


message 11: by Kelley Anne (new)

Kelley Anne | 1619 comments Scratch that! I am on Wolfe's Hope. Time to get started! I'll let you know how it goes!


message 12: by Dawn, Desperately seeking new worlds (new)

Dawn (dawnv) | 4048 comments Hey Kelley Anne!
I am still reading Sin Undone. Reading very slow today but whatever!


message 13: by Kelley Anne (new)

Kelley Anne | 1619 comments Nothing wrong with reading slow! Sometimes I find that I enjoy a book more if I read it slow. Otherwise I always tend to miss things. That's one of the reasons that I love audio books. You can't race through it and you don't miss anything!

As for my book, I was in the mood for a pure guilty pleasure book today. I can only read Lora Leigh when I am in the right mood. Otherwise her books kinda drive me crazy!

How's Sin Undone? I actually haven't read any books by that author yet.


message 14: by Jess (new)

Jess | 3721 comments Sorry ladies, I had something come up and was unable to do read with you both. I'm glad to see you are enjoying yourselves though :)


message 15: by Kelley Anne (new)

Kelley Anne | 1619 comments That's ok! Things come up!

Kelley Anne | 1619 comments BTW - Finished Wolfe's Hope. Typical Lora Leigh. Big on passion, sometimes the story gets a bit lost because of it!

Started reading Blood Law. Since it's a BOM and I've had it sitting on my desk all month I figured I need to finally get around to it! A little bit late in the month, but oh well!


message 17: by Dawn, Desperately seeking new worlds (new)

Dawn (dawnv) | 4048 comments Ok so that was a really long break ...company with wine I mean who could resist LOL. However I did manage to finish Sin Undone. Great book!

Kelley Anne I love this series it is urban fantasy with a romantic angle, the series have a lot of everything I highly recommend it!

Jess no worries thanks for stopping by though!

Kelley Anne I have that book (Blood Law) as well. I think I will read along with you for a bit.


message 18: by Kelley Anne (new)

Kelley Anne | 1619 comments Sounds good. I'm actually going to take a quick break right now for dinner. You'll probably easily catch up to me by the time I get back! And No I probably couldn't have resisted either! :)


message 19: by Dawn, Desperately seeking new worlds (new)

Dawn (dawnv) | 4048 comments I keep taking so many breaks, and why am I so addicted to bridezilla????

Anyway about Lora Leigh I like some of her books and others I can barely finish. I think it is the whole dominate I will beat you down sexually that just grates on my nerves LOL. At any rate I totally get what you mean when you say you have to be in the mood.

Anyway I doubt I will get very far in Blood Law but so far so good. I like that she is a vamp with hunger issues. I hate it when vamps are too cool to desire blood LOL.


message 20: by Dawn, Desperately seeking new worlds (new)

Dawn (dawnv) | 4048 comments Ok I am done for the night.
Kelley Anne I hope you are enjoying Blood Law it started to get really good.

My totals today are 8 hour reading time. I finished Sin Undone, in Blood Law and House of Cards I read to chapter 6.
I will post my total pages later.


message 21: by Kelley Anne (new)

Kelley Anne | 1619 comments I am really doing bad today! On Wed I read straight with very few breaks. Today my 1 hour off for dinner turned into 4 hours because my best friend who lives out of state showed up out of the blue. So I still have 5 hours to go. Let's see if I can read through until 3am. I'm used to staying up all night, so as long as I like the book enough I should be able to do it!


message 22: by Kelley Anne (new)

Kelley Anne | 1619 comments I give up! I just can't get into Blood Law. I'm about 100 pages in and it just isn't keeping my attention. The way that I am going I'll never be able to stay up until 3! So, instead I am grabbing another guilty pleasure and reading Jacob's Faith. We'll see how that goes!


message 23: by Dawn, Desperately seeking new worlds (new)

Dawn (dawnv) | 4048 comments LOL @ Kelley Anne yesterday was crazy for me too I wonder if it was just that kind of day. You know congrats for trying though!!Blood Law was totally confusing in the beginning. I was like wait who are you?? It was a mess but then I started to get into it.


message 24: by Carolyn F. (new)

Carolyn F. | 536 comments I was very bad (to my family) and read 12 hrs. 15 minutes on Sunday. I finished Wicked Game by Jeri Smith-Ready and The Time Weaver (Drakon, #5) by Shana Abé , couldn't finished Killing Moon and started Blaze of Memory (Psy-Changeling, #7) by Nalini Singh . Pretty good if I say so myself.

Dawn (dawnv) | 4048 comments Way to go Carolyn!!


message 26: by Kelley Anne (new)

Kelley Anne | 1619 comments Good job. I ended up falling asleep while reading. Last time I had looked at the clock it was 1am, so I ended up with 22 hours in 2 days. Not too bad! And I agree Dawn. I think that it was just that kind of day!
