What are you reading now?

I’ll be honest, I’m re-reading Lover Reborn by J.R.Ward. I’m absolutely obsessed with this author. She’s just superb and I love–LOVE–her books. Actually, to be completely honest, love doesn’t seem to cover it. My idea of heaven is a large room without disruptions where I could read her books over and over without stopping to eat or drink or sleep…Ahhhh. Did I mention she’s releasing a new book in April? Sigh. I can’t wait. It looks so good.

What are you reading and loving at the moment?

This is J.R.Ward’s upcoming release: The King. Doesn’t the cover look absolutely, terrifying awesome? I’m shaking with excitement and we’re a ways away still.



What I’m reading right now…

Just picked up Shadow Woman by Linda Howard. I was at the chiropractor’s office and I thought I’d start it. I didn’t think I was going to get into it because I had read a review that said it really wasn’t a romance story and was more of a mystery. I’m not a big mystery fan, so I thought this might not be my cup of tea.

Boy, was I wrong.

This book is awesome! So good, in fact, that when the doctor came out and said he’d be a few minutes late and my answer was: “Great!” Because it meant I could read more.

Linda Howard is a genius. The woman is sheer genius. I can’t say more…the book calls. I will repost once I’m done. And I have to finish this book because I have to go to work tomorrow and if I don’t get it done tonight and bring it to work, I will read it there and get caught again and that’s just bad. BAD.

Gotta go. Must read.

Best books of the year

Looking back over the year, I’m checking things over and making up my favourite lists. Best books, here goes.

*Favourite Historical:

My favourite historical book has to go to Mary Balogh’s The Arrangement. There just is something absolutely magical about Ms. Balogh’s writing. Classy, elegant and so absolutely delicious. I want to read that book all over again right now.

*Favourite Paranormal:

This one has to go to J. R. Ward. There’s something about the Black Dagger Brotherhood. I can’t recommend that series more. Absolutely amazing and kick butt awesome.

*Favourite Contemporary:

This one was hard. So hard. I loved, loved so many of the books I read this year. But my favourite has to go to Lisa Kleypas Smooth Talking Stranger. It’s just amazing. Amazing with a Capital A, if I was an English teacher I’d give it an A+, if I was a weather reporter, I’d give it 100% chance of enjoyment.

So hard to choose and there are so many definite keepers lining my shelves. What about you? What were those books that just made your top list this year?
