After an extra long weekend from Sandy, it is finally Friday again - these 3 days have sucked at work (or rather the 2 have, and i'm guessing today is going to...)

what is everyone reading this weekend?

I am hoping to finish up Bloodline: A Sigma Force Novel (James Rollins), Got Game? (Stephanie Doyle) and A Thousand Lives: The Untold Story of Jonestown (Julia Scheers) - about the Jonestown, Guyana massacre

on the ipod, i'm listening to The Hobbit that has just been re-mastered and re-released - loving it so far

MINISPOILER Virgin hero, with good reason to be.

On my ipod I'm listening to One Night Rodeo: A Blacktop Cowboys Novel : not great IMO but not DNF either. I won't be in a hurry to read other books in her series

i only read the first Blacktop cowboys book - I keep planning on read the rest, but ehhh

Will finish up Sarah Mclean's Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake today, and will also finish up the 2nd Wallflower book It Happened One Autumn (The Wallflowers, Book 2) in paperback. Still enjoying David Copperfield, roughly 2/3 in.

I will be starting Gennita Low's Crossfire series, with Protector (Crossfire) and Hunter (Crossfire series). Never read her before, and I'm ready for a break from historicals. And I need a new mystery, so I'll try Moonlighting in Vermont (The Bree MacGowan Series) by Kate George.

For the paperback, I think I'll take a brief Wallflower break and re-read Jayne Ann Krentz's Deep Waters, then jump back in with the much anticipated The Devil in Winter (The Wallflowers, Book 3).

I am reading Iced: A Dani O'Malley Novel (Fever Series), then plan to read Checkmate (A Neighbor from Hell) by RL Mathewson next. I've waited a long time for both of these, glad they're finally here. :-)

I'm sorry to hear that you gals aren't enjoying the Blacktop cowboys series. I loved the Rough Riders series, so have purchased the Blacktop titles. Ah well, not everything can be a gem, I guess

Currently reading Sophie Oak's One to Keep [Nights in Bliss, Colorado 3] [The Sophie Oak Collection] (Siren Publishing Everlasting Classic) on the Kindle, and I have Eloisa James The Ugly Duchess on the print stacks. But Alastair MacLean called my name the other day, and I may wind up with one of his in honor of the James Bond film opening. Also, Krentz's "Midnight Jewels" has been calling. Hmm, wonder if I'll make any head way on the tbr piles, or keep going re-reads????

Everyone have a great weekend!

Ike had me reading by oil lamp back in 2008. So much fun, so much fun!

i think for me my issue stemmed from the first book and an established couple - which I'm not a fan of...but I hope you like it - I like her RR series (already have the new one on pre-order)

I just downloaded Eloisa James's Seduced by a Pirate for 99 cents. Works for me!

tealadytoo-- I read Moonlighting in Vermont a long time ago and I really liked it.

KarLynP--interested to see what you think about Iced: A Dani O'Malley Novel (Fever Series). I wasn't totally digging Dani's character in the Fever series, so I can't work up the interest for this book. Let me know what you think.

Happy Weekend!

Finished up Iced: A Dani O'Malley Novel (Fever Series) this morning, as well as Pete Morin's Diary of a Small Fish (pretty good, but not romance. Think comedic 'The Firm').

Am going to get to Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet (Charley Davidson Series), and the Maya Banks' Highlander series, after picking Hubby up at the airport.

I just started When A Duke Says I Do by Jane Goodger. And next I'll probably read Tessa Dare's A Lady by Midnight (Spindle Cove 3)

I just started Lawful Escort by Tina Folsom and it's really cute so far. Got it for free earlier this week. I also plan to read The Secret of Ella and Micha by Jessica Sorensen and Secrets of a Wedding Night by Valerie Bowman.

Have a great weekend everyone! :)

Penny - did you finish last chance, my love? thoughts?

I've finally given up on Whitefire (Five Star Romance) and added it to m. y dnf shelf. Now I've started The Secrets She Carried (Harlequin Presents). Hopefully it'll be better than Whitefire. Lol

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 3, 2012 7:13:43 AM PDT
yep!! I know I am!! i'm actually going to read the second one - since it has been on my kindle since 2009...

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 3, 2012 7:14:15 AM PDT
Fern michaelis is like Diana Palmer to me - they are both stuck in the 60's-/70's

I'm still absorbing it, to be honest. I gave it 4 stars on GR, but there are many things I'm not pleased with, mostly my personal likes/dislikes with how she handled the storytelling (multiple POV's, 1st person, different characters, and things like that). It had an awkward flow because of it.

Undeniable. Just finished it. I loved it! It's not what I usually read and it's not your everyday, normal love story. It's about bikers and I guess what to them is normal in their world. As others have already said, there's cheating and a lot of angst, but the book is hard to put down and yes, it does have a HEA. I hope you give it a try, I hate a lot of the stuff that goes on in the story in real life, but the book is sooo good. Very gritty and rough in a lot of places.

i read Taking Shots (Assassins) by toni aleo yesterday. (i looked at it based on a recommendation on the "book of the month/year" thread and my 1-click habit asserted itself again.) it was really good, although i did get a little tired of the h's body issues. she had her friends and the H and her father all telling her she was gorgeous, she had a job that she loved and she didn't like the rest of her family, so why would she listen to those people as opposed to the ones who actually loved her the way she was?

finished up Dawn's Early Light by elswyth thane this morning. i know that i read it a long time ago (18 years), and i recognize the cover, but it's like i never read it at all, because i didn't recognize anything about the plot. i enjoyed it, though, and really appreciated the amount of research that appears to have gone into the writing of the story.

i'm moving on to Sleeping at the Magnolia by lisa g. brown, or i might ignore my dtb tbr and go for Charmed and Dangerous: A Bobbie Faye Novel by toni mcgee causey or Unholy Magic (Downside) by stacia kane.
