Bronwyn Rykiert | 140 comments I will look forward to this challenge as well. Can you please give me some ideas for this one - I am not sure what is required?

SAY IT: Using the phrase MILF. Find a book with words in the title associated with MILF (Mom I'd like to fuck).

Thanks


Unapologetic_Bookaholic I had a better explaination but I accidentally deleted the original thread,lol.

EXAMPLE:

You can use the words 'mom', 'i'd', 'like', 'to', 'fuck'.
A couple of 'fuck' titles
Everybody Fucks Raymond
Fuck the Foreplay
Mind Fuck

Or you can use a title that is associated with a MILF such as a descriptive erotica title
She wants it bad


And there is a MILF antho:
The MILF Anthology: Twenty-One Steamy Stories

In an earlier post, Kenjii, I thought that it said that we could use nicknames such as Jan for your mother's name. I don't see it written up there anymore. Is that still true?


Unapologetic_Bookaholic Yes Sassy that's fine. I accidentally deleted the original post. So nicknames of Shirley Janette (Janet) are fine :)

So we could use a title with any one of these words in it - but not all of them?

@Misskenjii, thanks! Just to clarify, so if you find a word in the the term MILF in the book title your using then it counts?

I've been addicted to this series and just finished the latest one Etched in Bone. It gets a little angsty at times, but Dante is definitely on the short list of my favorite characters. Hope you enjoy, too!

I'm sure I will Bridget, I've been trying to successfully read an Urban Fantasy novel for a long time now and it seems like I might actually do it this time.

I love Cat and bones! I've read everyone of those in the series. I haven't started on the Night Huntress World books though.

I've heard really good things about that series too but I haven't read any of those books either.


message 34: by Unapologetic_Bookaholic (last edited May 06, 2011 02:42PM) (new)

Unapologetic_Bookaholic @Sassy I only rated NHW book 1 a three. It's great bc Jeaniene Frost is a great writer. But bc the main characters are secondary characters they just did not have the star power that Cat and Bones have.

I have not been reading PNR so I have not read the latest release for NH! I continue to reread the series though bc I DO love Cat and Bones forever :)

LMAO! Yeah right! If I did that, I could read 5 books a day probably. I read VERY fast is all. But, I work 30 hours per week, have 2 kids (4 and 7), and a DH. I have been used to very little sleep, so I'm able to read when everyone else is in bed.

Also, 6 of these books were for review on TRR so I did them first.

great job, Bridget!


Gabrielle Blaque/~Bhlack Benehvolence~ (werewolfgrl1) | 226 comments Ok I had a quick question about Adrian Phoenix's A Rush of Wings.

Did anyone else get a little confused the first time they read this book? I'm really liking it so far but bits and pieces of it are kind of confusing me.

Yes I did find it confusing but it does pan out and do get to understand the story line. I would actually like to read the series again but with so many other books around I probably won't. Enjoy

Yup. The number of characters only increases as the series evolves, but as long as you can remember who's "bad" and who's "good", it will begin to fall into place. :)


Gabrielle Blaque/~Bhlack Benehvolence~ (werewolfgrl1) | 226 comments Glad to know I'm not the only one that got a little confused, it's mostly that E guy and that sorry excuse for a journalist that are confusing me/

Gabrielle Blaque/~Bhlack Benehvolence~ (werewolfgrl1) | 226 comments This a little off topic here but I didn't know where I should put it category wise.

I was just curious has anyone read either one of the books in Ms. Phoenix's Hoodoo series yet? Because I think I found an author and a series that I could really like!

Bridget (bekeown) | 126 comments Gabrielle ~ Bhlack Benehvolence ~ wrote:...I was just curious has anyone read either one of the books in Ms. Phoenix's Hoodoo series yet? Because I think I..."

I read the first one when it came out and really enjoyed it. We bounce from character to character as with the Maker's Song series, but there isn't as much going on, so I found it much easier to follow. And while there is plenty of serious stuff in these, as well, her sense of the sublimely absurd is allowed to come out a bit more (see Augustine and the wet boxer contest...)
Hoping the second has a bit more of the mysterious hero in it, as I don't feel like I know him too well as yet. But I highly recommend it--it's a perfect summer read.
