Cindy | 112 comments Another GR group I'm in had this great idea, so I thought I'd adapt it to PNR! I thought this would be fun, plus give other people a chance to recommend something that they've read and liked!

Rules:

1. When you post, you first need to pick a book for the person above you to read next. You HAVE TO have read at least 1 of their 5 so you can choose for them. (If you havent read any of the books please dont post yet and wait for a list with books you have read!)

2. Under your book suggestion, list your 5 books that you are considering reading

3. Watch for the next post under yours to see what book will be your next one to read.

Happy reading!

Cindy | 112 comments Since I'm the one that posted this, I'll start it out. So, I don't have a book to choose for anyone, but I'll post my 5 that I'm debating between.

Choose a great one for me!

AlbertaJenn Sorry, I'm still tired and groggy! Can you post the link to the thread on the other group so we can see how exactly this is done? I'm intrigued.

Hey There Delilah!! (lilone322) | 26 comments I've also seen this is another group (maybe the same group you've seen it) but I've never had a chance to participate. either I havent read the books or I'm too late for the ones I did read. sucks either way. hope I get to participate here.

Cee | 82 comments This is a great idea guys! I'll await my turn though... (;


message 11: by Cindy (new)

Cindy | 112 comments Ok, so it looks like no one has read any of the books that Mlpmom has chosen? I'm going to step up and say if anyone has HEARD anything good about any of these or has one of them on their own TBR list, go ahead and recommend it, so we can keep this moving along!

I find that I really enjoy the rest of a series if I loved the first one.

Okay, I have actually started a number of books, but have not finished them. So my choices are going to be which book to work on right now to finish.

Surrender (MacKinnon’s Rangers, #1) by Pamela Clare Secrets of the Night (Malloren, #4) by Jo Beverley Linked by Love by Roz Denny Fox Rode Hard, Put Up Wet (Rough Riders, #2) by Lorelei James Motor Mouth (Alex Barnaby, #2) by Janet Evanovich



message 13: by Cindy (new)

Cindy | 112 comments Albertajean, finish up Motor Mouth (Alex Barnaby, #2) by Janet Evanovich . I liked it, but do you find that Alex Barnaby is just Stephanie Plum in a new location?! It's still entertaining though!

Here are mine:

At Grave's End (Night Huntress, #3) by Jeaniene Frost Lover Eternal (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #2) by J.R. Ward Desire Unchained (Demonica, #2) by Larissa Ione Seduced by the Storm (ACRO, #3) by Sydney Croft A Job From Hell (Ancient Legends, #1) by Jayde Scott

I actually haven't read Stephenie Plum, so I don't have that comparision bothering me! But I will do!

L-D (lannie95) | 284 comments Okay got it - but AlbertaJenn you confused me with your post. Did you pick a book for Cindy? if not Cindy I pick http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/35...

Here are mine:
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/35...
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/17...
I know they may not all be paranormal romances but I haven't read them yet so I'm not sure if there is romance or not...?


message 16: by L-D (new)

L-D (lannie95) | 284 comments Okay - I think I have this. But AlbertaJenn didn't pick a book for Cindy so I think I can do that.

Lover Eternal (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #2) by J.R. Ward

I'm not sure if mine are in the paranormal romance category or not since I haven't read them and some of them have male leads but these are the ones I'm interested in:
Riding the Storm (ACRO, #1) by Sydney Croft Halfway to the Grave (Night Huntress, #1) by Jeaniene Frost Nightlife (Cal Leandros, #1) by Rob Thurman Magic to the Bone (Allie Beckstrom, #1) by Devon Monk Pleasure Unbound (Demonica, #1) by Larissa Ione

I'm not picking for you because I've already had my turn but I've read the Ghostland series, Fever series, and I JUST finished book 9 of the Sisters of the Moon (Galenorn's) series today. I'm curious to see what the next poster picks for you :)


message 19: by AlbertaJenn (new)

AlbertaJenn ***An Aside***
Sorry, I didn't pick since I'm not finished Motor Mouth yet. Just commented.


message 20: by Cee (new)

Cee | 82 comments Hi Katie! I'd definitely go for Darkfever, that book blew me away (:

* How to make cover thingies: above the comment box there is a link "add book/author". Click it, type the name of the book, enable the option "cover" (it's set to "link" as default), then simply click "add", and you have shiny things in your post!

Here's what I've got:
Lover Awakened (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #3) by J.R. Ward A Fistful of Charms (The Hollows, #4) by Kim Harrison Broken (Women of the Otherworld, # 6) by Kelley Armstrong Eyes Like Stars (Théâtre Illuminata, #1) by Lisa Mantchev Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell by Susanna Clarke


message 21: by Katie (new)

Katie (jessesgurl) | 68 comments Lan-Dinh - I finished Pleasure Unbound (Demonica, #1) by Larissa Ione a few months ago and it was ok. I think I need to read some others from the series. How is the Ghostland series?

Celine - Thank you for helping to satisfy my inner Valkyrie with shiny things!! I keep hearing that

Darkfever (Fever, #1) by Karen Marie Moning is awesome!


message 22: by Cee (new)

Cee | 82 comments You're welcome Katie (: It's very awesome, I hope you will enjoy it too!

HA! That's what I would've picked for Katie too of the 3 I've read!

Katie wrote: "How is the Ghostland series?"

Katie - the first book, Ghostland, was heavy into the sex. I like some steamy scenes but I like me some plot too :) But the second book was better and the third book was my favorite of the series. But the Fever series is AWESOME. So much action. I recommended it to my sister just last weekend and she plowed through them. It's also nice that the series is finished so you don't have to wait a year for the next release - but I do hope Ms. Moning makes another series set in the same world with some spin-of characters.


message 24: by Cindy (new)

Cindy | 112 comments Celine, for sure you've got to read Lover Awakened (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #3) by J.R. Ward - Definitely my favorite of the series, so far!! It's amazing.

Here are my 5:

message 25: by L-D (last edited Jul 22, 2011 07:52AM) (new)

L-D (lannie95) | 284 comments Cindy - I've read 3 of the 5 you've picked and while I love J.R. Ward's series, since I JUST started reading the Night Huntress series with my sisters and sister-in-law then I pick that one for you! At Grave's End (Night Huntress, #3) by Jeaniene Frost .

Here are my next 5:
One Foot in the Grave (Night Huntress, #2) by Jeaniene Frost Seduced by the Storm (ACRO, #3) by Sydney Croft A Dance with Dragons (A Song of Ice and Fire, #5) by George R.R.

Thanks! I was hoping that would be the pick ;) Not that I wouldn't have read it anyway!! The books you listed are awesome - you'll love those...


message 28: by Coffeentea (new)

Coffeentea | 128 comments Julie, you just listed 2 of my all time favorite series (Kate Daniels and Psy-Changelings) besides IAD. I pick Magic Bites for you. There isn't much romance in the first book but it develops slowly over the series. The world building and action are awesome. I love Kate's snarky sense of humor.

Here are my 5
I'll Be Slaying You (Night Watch, #2) by Cynthia Eden Dangerous Highlander (Dark Sword, #1) by Donna Grant Beyond the Highland Mist (Highlander, #1) by Karen Marie Moning Mercy Blade (Jane Yellowrock, #3) by Faith Hunter Ravenous (The Dark Forgotten, #1) by Sharon Ashwood

Wowwww - this is impressive. You listed five books and I haven't read ANY of those! That's never happened! I'm going to have to remedy that and read some of the books you listed! But the only one I've even heard of is KMM's Highland series. I'd love some reviews on the other books if anyone's familiar with them!


message 31: by Coffeentea (last edited Jul 22, 2011 02:14PM) (new)

Coffeentea | 128 comments Oh really? I was thinking about reading the Fever series, I heard someone said that I should read the Highlander series before Fever. Should I switch out some of my books? Didn't realize how obscure these books are. I just saw recommendations here and there and so I got them from the library to try out.

NO! Obscure is not necessarily a bad thing! Some of my favorite books this year were pretty obscure! I read the Fever series and LOVED it. Then I was hesitant to get into the Highlander series because I was afraid it wouldn't be the same pace - more focused on the romance and less on the heroine kicking demon ass. :)

I say keep the books you have but let me know if they're any good!! ;)


message 33: by Coffeentea (last edited Jul 26, 2011 05:25PM) (new)

Coffeentea | 128 comments Ok, now I really have to update my list because I read Beyond the Highland Mist and Dangerous Highlander, and currently reading I'll Be Slaying You.

Beyond the Highland Mist - it's a time travel historical romance with Fae elements. It's good. I heard other people say this series will get better and have more paranormal elements, so I'll keep reading.

Dangerous Highlander - a historical paranormal romance with Druid magic. So far, I am liking it but couldn't help to draw the parallel between this story line and Lords of the Underworld. The warriors have ancient gods (that were banished to the underworld) living in them and they have to try to control the gods. Similar to the lords having demons living inside and having control issues.

Here are my new 5
Mercy Blade (Jane Yellowrock, #3) by Faith Hunter Ravenous (The Dark Forgotten, #1) by Sharon Ashwood To Tame a Highland Warrior (Highlander, #2) by Karen Marie Moning Beast Behaving Badly (Pride, #5) by Shelly Laurenston Angels' Blood (Guild Hunter, #1) by Nalini Singh


Cindy (eclecticfirefly) (eclecticfirefly) | 21 comments ARRGH!!!!! I need to catch up before I can post 5 to read of my own...... I'll suck it up and do it if no one chooses for you soon.


Cindy (eclecticfirefly) (eclecticfirefly) | 21 comments Coffeentea - I choose Beast Behaving Badly (Pride, #5) by Shelly Laurenston for you (if you haven't already read it!). I LOVE those!!!

My next 5 are:

Infected Prey (Infected, #1) by Andrea Speed Fragile Eternity (Wicked Lovely, #3) by Melissa Marr Hex Hall (Hex Hall, #1) by Rachel Hawkins My Soul to Save (Soul Screamers, #2) by Rachel Vincent Starjacked by Karin Shah
