What I’m Reading

I’ve always gotten a kick out of people whose goal is to read like 50 books a year. I’m sure I read tons. Tons and tons. So now, I’m putting my money where my mouth is. This year, I’m actually gonna track and see just how many books I really read this year…

  1. Bait & Switch, Larry Brooks. Really good. He’s a new favourite for keeping you guessing right up to the very last page. I like that.
  2. Kiss of the Shadow Man, Maggie Shayne. I was at her workshop on writing a fast-paced book. She’s really good at that… I couldn’t put it down.
  3. Out-of-this-World Marriage, Maggie Shayne. It was a three books in one. 🙂
  4. Undead & Unappreciated, MaryJanice Davidson. Good. but was way too quick a read. I hate that. I like to live in a book’s world for a while.
  5. Brazen, Carly Phillips. Cute, but a little on the standard category format (and considering it was marketed as a single title, that’s not good…)
  6. Room Service, Jill Shalvis. I liked it. Hot and sexy, good supporting characters.
  7. Can You Keep A Secret?, Sophie Kinsella. I hate her heroines. They’re stupid. But Sophie’s voice keeps me coming back for more. I started this book just before 11 one night, and finished it just after 1 a.m. I hate that.
  8. Truth or Dare, Lori Foster. I’ve always liked Lori’s books. Of course, I wrote back cover copy for one of her books, so she’s got a little spot in my portfolio (er, I mean heart 🙂 ) The thing is, this is the trilogy that my book Caught was supposed to be, only so much better. *le sigh*
  9. Repo Chick Blues, Tracy Sharp. I couldn’t put it down. Not usually what I read, seriously intense, but wow. very good.
  10. Polar Opposites, Paige Burns. I’m trying to read up as many stories I can from the publisher I’m working for now. So far so good.
  11. Hot Target, Suzanne Brockmann. Loved it. LOVED. IT. I love her shit. And that she wrote this kind of story and dedicated it to her son. So cool.
  12. Girls’ Night In, Various authors. Some very good stories, some other stories.
  13. What Have I Done For Me Lately?, Isabel Sharpe. Um. I blogged about this. ’nuff said.
  14. Undressed, Vicki Lewis Thompson, Suzanne Forrester, Alison Kent. Ok, I didn’t read Suzanne’s story yet. I’m not a big fan of hers, cuz I’m still bitter about The Morning After.
  15. Bitter is the New Black, Jen Lancaster. Couldn’t put this down. Love Jen’s voice. Love Jen’s website. And Pink (me) is on her list of citizens… cool eh?
  16. Flirtation, Samantha Hunter. I know I read it. Don’t remember much about it.
  17. Devil’s Bargain, Rachel Caine. This was a re-read because I finally got…
  18. Devil’s Due, Rachel Caine. All-in-all, I quite enjoyed this series. Rachel was recommended by a friend, and I really like her style. I may have to check out more of her.
  19. The Zebra Wore Fishnets, Pepper Espinoza. I edited the next two books in the Zebra series, so I really had to read this one. Emphasized why I love her stuff… even if I did find a lot of really basic grammar mistakes and a character who changed names partway through the book. 🙂
  20. Angel with Attitude, Michelle Rowen. ‘Twas a sneak peek so I (and others) can do a little viral blogging. This was really, reallly good.
  21. Devil King of the Sixth Heaven, Darragha Foster
  22. Death Warmed Over, Darragha Foster
  23. Devil’s Food Kate, Darragha Foster
  24. The Zebra Wore Blue Jeans, Pepper Espinoza
  25. The Zebra Wore Leather, Pepper Espinoza
  26. The Pumpkin House, Pepper Espinoza
  27. Point Blank, Julie Cambria
  28. Billet-Doux, Eva Gilchrist
  29. Welcome to the House of Fun, Susan M. Sailors. Yeah, I’m putting the fiction books I edited up here. I only read them a thousand times each. 🙂
  30. No Going Home, T.A. Chase
  31. Dates from Hell, Kim Harrison, Lynsay Sands, Kelley Armstrong, Lori Handeland. Hmm.. two new-to-me authors, two favourites. Still favourites, one new that I probably won’t read again, one new that I will. 🙂
  32. Working for the Devil, Lillith Saintcrow. A friend recommended it, and she didn’t let me down. I’m always so envious of these authors who come up with their own worlds, complete with names and languages and everything.
  33. Sex and the Single Witch, Theresa Alan, Carly Alexander, and Holly Chamberlin. Wow, three witches who were seriously whiny and insecure. I usually like Carly Alexander’s stuff, but not really impressed with this book.
  34. The Devil Wears Prada, Lauren Weisberger. I wanted to read the book before I see the movie. I can’t believe people are actually like that! My life is so boring. 🙂
  35. Mad World, Pepper Espinoza. Another edit… but daaayyyum.
