Hummmm….I have no idea what to talk about.
I took a week (well 5 days) off writing and just read – it was amazing and I can’t tell you how much I miss reading. I think as authors sometimes we forget that we need to read for pleasure not to critique, not to edit, not to figure out where our characters are going. Just pure unadulterated pleasure.

So here is what I’ve read so far:

Into the Mist – Maya Banks
This I’d classify as a paranormal suspense with some hot sexy scenes. I read it in a day – I really loved it.

Bad Moon Rising – Sherrilyn Kenyon
Dark-Hunter book – need I say more. ;-)

I’ve been waiting for Fang and Amy’s book for so long that I was jonesing for this book. There was a lot of stuff I already knew, but know why it had to be there so... It didn't disappoint.

The Tycoon’s Secret Affair – Maya Banks
Silhouette Desire – I haven’t read a Desire in ages and this one is from Maya so…’nuff said.

Lover Avenged – J.R. Ward
Black Dagger Brotherhood book – ‘nuff said
I’m not finished with this one yet (its gynormous) It took me a bit to get into it, but now I’m hooked (again) I have found though that I don’t really care about the Lesser parts and find myself skimming to get back to the brothers and Rehv.

I’ve also read some work for friends so there was a little critiquing in there too – but I love that stuff.

So what have you been reading?

I just finished Diana Petersfreund's Rampant and OMG I loved it.

I've already read Maya's and it was fabulous too!

I've got The Forest of Hands and Teeth, but haven't started it yet. Also JR Wards book. I'm glad to know you're enjoying it. I was afraid this was going to be one that I wouldn't like. And you know how much I love the Blackdagger Brothers. :)

I finally finished up Real Men Last All Night. It was good. Not a keeper for me though. But then I guess they can't all be or Todd would freak out even more. ;)

Thank you!!!

As for reading? Well, I haven't read anything in about two weeks. I work at a college library, and it is semester start up. Hiring, training, overtime....these are in my vocabulary.
