Robin (ladybirdrobi) I have a suggestion for Q- Queen Of Dragons by Shana Abe. I think I have also heard that for X that there are Xena Warrior Princess adventure books but I'm not a 100% sure on that one.

Robin


message 7: by Sashana (new)

Sashana Thanks, Robin.


message 8: by Robin (new)

Robin (ladybirdrobi) Your quite welcome. I just wish I could find solver my software problem as easily. I need Microsot Works 9.0 and it needs to be compatible with Windows 7 and the only place that I found this software cannot tell me if it is compatible with Windows 7. I feel like I am in a vicious circle with no end.

I wish I could help, but I'm computer illiterate; I seriously need to invest in some computer classes. Isn't there a CD you can buy to install Microsot Works 9.0?

I have A- Alexandra's legacy by NJ Walters, C - A Certain Wolfish Charm by Lydia Dare, D - Desire Untamed by Pamela Palmer, E- Elizabeth's Wolf by Lora Leigh, K - Kiss of Heat by Lora Leigh, M - The Man Within by Lora Leigh, Also Mating Games by Dana Marie Bell, R - Rapture Untamed by Pamela Palmer, S - Silver Born by Patricia Briggs, T - Tempting The Beast by lora Leigh, and W - Wolf Tales 11 by Kate Douglas. Only 16 more letters to go.

I am impressed with myself as I have been depressed and haven't been wanting to read, four of those books in the last two days. Hopefullly I can continue as I want to at least do this in 12 months or less.

Robin

Sashana Thanks, Ann. This is a huge contribution to the list. We appreciate it.


message 32: by Robin (new)

Robin (ladybirdrobi) Hi there,
Where is the reading log to fill in your list from A-Z books thus far. I tried to find it but the only thing I can see for reading the Alphabet from A-Z is the difficult letters. I just want to post what letters I have so far.

You need to go to the main group (home) page. Then go to the section, "Reading Challenges". Here's the link, though. http://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/3...


message 34: by Robin (new)

Robin (ladybirdrobi) Thanks Shay,
I'll do that after my doctor's appointment.


message 35: by Robin (new)

Robin (ladybirdrobi) Well now 2 days later and I finally updated everyone and am shocked that I am well over the halfway mark sooner than I expected. 16/26 letters completed and I may be checking out some of the suggestions posted.

Letters needed are F,G,I,J,N,Q,V,X,Y and Z.

Anyone have suggestions. I love shapeshifter stories and prefer M/F or M/F/M but no same sex scenes. I just don't get how you can enjoy something so much bigger and larger in circumfrence into something smaller. Tried it and hated it.


message 36: by Lisarenee (new)

Lisarenee | 7659 comments Robin, I'll check my books and see what I can come up with.


message 37: by Robin (new)

Robin (ladybirdrobi) Thanks Lisarenee,
I have to check my TBR box to see what is in there as far as my remainging letters. I thought this cahllenge would take me a year to complete, with only ten to go I am thinking maybe I can do it in 6 months or less.

Tomorrow I am hoping to get all my book shelves organized or at least a good start on them.

Have a great weekend.

I have over 7000 books on my shelves. I was going to list some out for you but have no idea what you'd prefer to read so you are more than welcome to come and browse. Follow the link below:

message 39: by Robin (new)

Robin (ladybirdrobi) Wow Barbara,
That's alot of books you have there it will take me days to go through them. As to what I like any shapeshifter involved stories that are heterosexual and not really dark horror stuff. I just love HEA but will settle for HFN romances and any genre or mixed genres.
I am down to these letters: J, Q, X, Y and Z. I appreciate any and all suggestions.

Have a great weekend.

message 44: by Gayle (new)

Gayle (gretarahikkainen) | 125 comments I'm having trouble finding a book that starts with J. My preferred genres are historical fiction or historical mysteries......both medievally based if possible, second preferred genre would be fantasy. Anyone have any good suggestions? It's the only letter I'm missing a book for to complete the alphabet challenge.


message 45: by Lisa Kay (last edited Sep 23, 2011 08:32PM) (new)

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 15159 comments Gayle,

"J" titles that might work for you. Don't be put off by Joanna, a romance book. Gellis has a degree in history and the Roselynde Chronicles is quite good.

Jamaica Inn by Daphne du Maurier Julius by Daphne du Maurier Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë Joseph Balsamo by Alexandre Dumas Jubilee Trail by Gwen Bristow Joanna (The Roselynde Chronicles, #3) by Roberta Gellis The Jewel in the Crown (The Raj Quartet, #1) by Paul Scott Julius Caesar (Folger Shakespeare Library) by William Shakespeare
John Adams by David McCullough The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan Judgment in Death (In Death, #11) by J.D. Robb The Judgment of Paris by Gore Vidal


message 46: by Gayle (last edited Sep 23, 2011 08:32PM) (new)

Gayle (gretarahikkainen) | 125 comments Thanks for the suggestions. I'll have to take a look at some of these. Roberta Gellis is an author I've not read previously but I think I have a few of hers in my "Books to look for/Books I want to read" notebook. I also just remembered a book I loved as a kid, but I've already read it so many times I don't know that I'd want to read it again. Julie of the Wolves (Julie of the Wolves, #1) by Jean Craighead George
Might be a nice nostalgic trip though.

I would still like more suggestions, you never know what someone else might come up with!


message 47: by Lisa Kay (new)

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 15159 comments I've heard of that one but haven't read it, Gayle. Thanks, I may see if my library has it.

I have a shelf with X-Y-Z (titles, authors, character names) with less than 40 titles on it. Maybe something here will fit those last three http://www.goodreads.com/review/list/...

Unfortunately I haven't seen a lot of mild shifter novels starting with J or Q but here is one each.

The Jaguar Prince (Princes of Symtaria, #1) by Karen Kelley Queen of Song and Souls (Tairen Soul, #4) by C.L. Wilson

And here are some other ideas http://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/8...

Hopefully you will find something that helps.
