Danielle (Smiley1881) I'm reading Fire Burn & Cauldron Bubble by H.P. Mallory and I'm really enjoying it. I have to say I'm a little surprised how good it is.

I read an excerpt from MbM on LK's website and I loved it. I'm thinking I may have to re-read the first three books while I'm waiting :)

Melinda (craftymommy) | 766 comments I'm in the middle of reading Spider's Bite (Elemental Assassin, #1) by Jennifer Estep . I'm not thrilled about it yet; it seems to be slow even though there's plenty of action.

message 21: by Melanie (new)

Melanie (melaina) | 1339 comments Just finished Winter Roses (Long, Tall Texans) (Harlequin Romance #3985) by Diana Palmer , and was pretty disappointed (first time this happens with a DP)... 3-3.5*

message 22: by Sarah (new)

Sarah  | 367 comments I'm reading Mockingjay


message 23: by Melanie (last edited Sep 01, 2010 05:58PM) (new)

Melanie (melaina) | 1339 comments Read Fit For A King (Mira) by Diana Palmer , gave it 3.5-4* because I didn't appreciate King's attitude to Elissa when he was still mixed up with another woman... Now started Gotcha! by Christie Craig for the SRC challenge... looks like a fun read, I'm 30 pages in and the heroine has already kneed the hero in the family jewels:-)


message 24: by Julianna (new)

Julianna (authorjuliannad) | 1709 comments I started Devil in Winter by Lisa Kleypas this afternoon. I'm looking forward to getting further into it and seeing how LK redeems Sebastian.

message 28: by Daffodil (new)

Daffodil (daffodil--ripcranberry) | 1058 comments Finished Owls Well That Ends Well Owls Well That Ends Well (Meg Langslow, #6) by Donna Andrews . I'm not sure how a garage sale turned into a murder scene and developed into a weekend long carnival with funnel cakes and sno-cones, but Meg's family made it somehow believable.

Still in the middle of Unholy Ghosts Unholy Ghosts (Downside Ghosts, #1) by Stacia Kane . Haven't done much reading today. Just finished making my Chocolate Chai cupcakes, so I'll probably get a little reading in before sleeping.


message 29: by Mel W (new)

message 33: by Melanie (new)

Melanie (melaina) | 1339 comments Read Gotcha! (Love Spell) by Christie Craig last night, awesome and hilarious book (with a good dose of angst at the end), 5*.... and just finished Practice Makes Perfect by Julie James , another light and easy read: 4-4.5*

Now wondering what to read next...


message 34: by Carolyn F. (new)

Sure, Have a virtual cupcake, chai buttercream icing optional. Mmmmm! Smell that cardamom. Best. Spice. Ever. And just slightly less intense, the smell of dark chocolate mixed with cinnamon and cloves. And since it's virtual, you don't have to worry about all the calories and fat from 3 sticks of butter and 8 eggs that went into the batter alone. ;)

Dija Currently reading Web of Lies (Elemental Assassin, #2) by Jennifer Estep I loved the first book, so I'm pretty sure this one will be amazing as well.


Amy ~Lover of Books~ | 957 comments I finally started this Legacies (Shadow Grail, #1) by Mercedes Lackey last night. I have the arc to this even though it had already come out.


message 39: by Erin (new)

Erin H | 758 comments Still working on the book that will not be named because I just can't seem to finish it... but when I am done I'm going to start The Highlander (Mira Historical Romance) by Elaine Coffman instead of How to Dazzle a Duke (The Courtesan Chronicles, #4) by Claudia Dain !! I'm so glad that the long weekend is coming up so I can get ahead in my challenges!!

Hesitating between Divorced, Desperate and Deceived by Christie Craig Just the Sexiest Man Alive by Julie James and Say No To Joe? (Visitation, North Carolina, #1) by Lori Foster ... DG?:-p


message 44: by D.G. (new)

D.G. | 4477 comments LOL! I haven't read any of those, Melanie! I'd say go with Christie Craig because I think you've read the two other authors recently. :)


message 45: by D.G. (last edited Sep 03, 2010 09:59AM) (new)

D.G. | 4477 comments I just finished Ecstasy Unveiled (Demonica, #4) by Larissa Ione which was good but there were too many freaking people. I think everybody that even breathed in the other 3 books made an appearance (and had pages and pages devoted to them) and like 3 new guys showed up screaming, I'll have a book soon!

Sin also annoyed the heck out me. I was planning to start her book next but I think I need a break from her. Don't know what to pick up next.

What about Loretta Chase's new book Last Night's Scandal (Carsington Brothers, #5) by Loretta Chase ? I read it 2 days ago and really enjoyed it:-) Otherwise, you always have Beatrix and Christopher.. Love in the Afternoon (The Hathaways, #5) by Lisa Kleypas is also great and funny:-)


message 47: by D.G. (new)

D.G. | 4477 comments Thanks Melanie! I think I'll go with Beatrix and Christopher. I read Leo & Cat's story just before the Demonica book and I'm dying to get back to that series!

Hope you like them:-) I finished Divorced, Desperate and Deceived (Divorced, #3) by Christie Craig ... Not my favorite CC, but a light read... 4 stars:-) I'm going off grid till Monday, it's my bf's bday, and I don't think I should be sneaking off to read a couple chapters in my latest book, lol:-)


message 50: by Dee (new)
