"So I've been wanting to start a thread like this for awhile. I think it would be fun if we not only put what we are currently reading, but also what we have just read and are going to read next. Also maybe put your opinion about the book you previously read so other people can see if they would like to read it! "

Here's the link to the old forums - there's lots of good recs there:)
Part 1 is here:

You folks are amazing. Congrats on this continuing, very informative thread.

I'm currently reading "Tuesday's Child" by Dale Mayer. The series is called Psychic Visions and it's a PNR suspense. I'm at 50% on the Kindle...it was a slow start but it keeps getting better as I go on. There are 3 books out so far and $3.99 each on Kindle. So far, so good...it certainly can go belly up but I'm not expecting that to happen as the reviews are pretty good (on all 3 books).

I just read the Ilona Andrews short story in Hex Appeal and now I want more! I'm curious if they're going to continue Adam and Siroun's story in other books.

I plan on finishing Devil's Gate and then moving on to Mind Games (The Disillusionists Trilogy: Book 1).

Hi all a new thread, Yeah! I'm reading The Zillionaire Vampire Cowboy's Secret Werewolf Babies. Melindeeoo you are right, it is better with a glass of alcohol or wine or as you suggested a margarita. Next book will be from Mt TRB.

@ D Stom "Ah, my link to the living shall continue. :)" That sounds like a chapter in a future PNR novel. Are you interested in writing it? LOL!

Just read Glory in Death which was excellent and incredibly entertaining.
Currently I am reading More Than Complete Hitchhiker's Guide I'm about 1/4th finished with it and so far I think it's really good, a lot of wit and humor although a couple of pages have dragged but overall I am thoroughly enjoying it.
As for the next book I will read I think it will be Mortal Obligation (The Dark Betrayal Trilogy) :)

About halfway through The Iron Duke (The Iron Seas) and it is going better. I am still confused as to who is a bugger and who is a bounder and all that but the adventure is good and the romance is starting to pick up.

Went to used bookstore (Annie's Bookswap) today looking for the Tairen Souls books but I struck out (and I had 3 Anita Blake books to turn in!). But they only had the 2nd one so I didn't bother. I might get them from Amazon using 4-for-3 promotion since that would be cheaper in the long run, but I am so addicted to my kindle lately.....or maybe I should make a dent in my TBR stack before I buy anything else....must find willpower....

@Melindeeloo - When I got The Zillionaire Vampire Cowboy's Secret Werewolf Babies months ago (on your rec) you neglected to tell me that getting drunk was part of the reading experience :) Maybe I could have gotten past page 50.

Part 3 continues the party!!!
I am reading Back from the Undead (The Bloodhound Files, Book 5). I have really liked the series up to this point so I hope this one is good too. It is more UF because it is very light on romance. I really like the world that the h is in though and the h response to it.

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 23, 2012 1:28:07 PM PDT
@Tiger Lily - are the first 4 books in The Bloodhound Files very good? Anything to compare it to?

Doug, I would put the Stormwalker series in the "good," not exceptional category. They're interesting and different enough to be worth reading, but don't expect Kate Daniels. :)

The Bloodhound Files are very UF. The main character, an FBI profiler, travels to an alternate dimension and is stuck there until she completes a job. I'm trying to think of something that I could compare it to, but I'm coming up blank. There is some pretty funny dialogue with her Golem partner, but the romance is definitely on the back burner. I guess I could compare it to the October Daye series in that aspect.

@Doug
It is hard to think of a comparison for it. . . maybe the OSI series that begins with Night Child (OSI, Book 1) because of the fact that the "case" they are on is more important than the romance. However, the worlds are really different in the two series so maybe that is not a good comparison. I just find The Bloodhound Files really different. It is a parallel world to ours where humans are less than 1% of the population that is made up of vampires, werewolves, and golems. Humans are in danger of being extinct. When a serial killer begins to kill in that world they don't know how to find him so they bring an FBI profiler from our world to their world to hunt down the serial killer. I find the h's response to this new world, that seems so similar but is sooooo different, really interesting. I love the golem character. He is a hoot. The world building is just top notch for me. The h is snarky and unique. I really like the way the author created the world and how the h interacts with it and the people in it. Some of our history is parallel to their history but with a twist and I like the twists (such as WWIi and the Holocaust in their world). It is probably better compared to Fatherland: A Novel which is a crime novel set in the USSR and with the premise that Hitler won WWII. As I read Fatherland I just really liked seeing how the author changed the history we actually had to what could have been. It was just some really smart writing which is what I have found, so far, with The Bloodhound Files. I don't think it can be classified as true PNR so far though.

LAB... buggers are the people that stayed and were affected by the invaders, and the bounders crossed the sea, (boundary), to escape and came back when everything was all clear.

Thanks Vanessa! Now I just have to remember which character is which! I'm like 70% in and I still have to stop and think about who is who. It's not the writing though - it's me. Definitely didn't get enough sleep last night to read a book I had to actually think about and keep straight in my head. But I am enjoying it.

Thanks for starting the new thread, Melindeeloo! Can't believe we're on part III already. WOW. I'm currently reading Jeaniene Frost's Night Huntress series.

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 23, 2012 3:06:46 PM PDT
@Dicey - "I'm currently reading Jeaniene Frost's Night Huntress series." - you gonna be ready to read Once Burned (Night Prince, Book 1) with the rest of us? We are giving you till the end of the month to get your reading done then being all unselfish readers, get back to writing !

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 23, 2012 3:12:15 PM PDT
@S E Baratta - I took a look at Tuesday's Child by Dale Mayer (there are more than 1 book with that title) and it looks good and the reviews are 52/59 are 4+ Stars, sounds like a PNR murder mystery. I am going to have to start a wishlist on Amazon with "Books I want to buy when I reduce my TBR" The fact I can get it for FREE after 1 July (used up my freebie this month) makes it look more appealing .

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 23, 2012 3:16:55 PM PDT
I'm trying my darndest to catch up with you guys, Doug. I'm on book 3 now. I think Once Burned comes out next week, right? Depends on whether I can get my Kindle to behave properly and if I can get some uninterrupted reading done tonight and tomorrow before we hit the road to go back home Monday. My mother-in-law's helping with the kids right now, so as soon as I see the green light on my Kindle, I'm hitting it again. I promise to get back to writing soon. :D On another note--you know that's ANOTHER cover for Paul Marron? Man. He is on so many. I met him at Kresley Cole's book signing for Lothaire. Charming guy.

Melindeeloo, I'll leave Zillionaire alone until I can get my liquor buzz back. It may take something stronger than a margarita.

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 23, 2012 3:44:42 PM PDT
I finished Tuesday's Child by Dale Mayer and I enjoyed it. Light on the romance and heavy on the murder mystery which is normally fine for me but I found the romance to be lacking...well, romance. Probably because the heroine has some issues that make her great in the psychic department and not so much in the romance department. The paranormal aspect is the psychic stuff which I found intriguing. There's a really great secondary character that carries into the second book (called Hide'N Go Seek). The reviews - 29/30 are 4+ stars so I'm guessing it will be good.

Starting Part 3 is impressive, but we HAVE to finish Part 2 :-0. Still 101 posts to go over there :-)

Doug - As to Zillionaire Cowboy, I think it helps to be in the same frame of mind as the authors were when they wrote it and I completely agree with another reviewer who suggested margaritas were involved:)
