What is a really good series you have started lately?  I just started Jennifer Estep's spyder series and man is this series awesome.  It is close to becoming a fav top five.

Love the Spider Series. I finally started Faith Hunter's Jane Yellowrock series and enjoyed that.  I also read Royal Street by Suzanne Johnson and liked that one. She has second book out now too.

Alice,

Glad to here Royal Street was good.  I've been wanting to read it for awhile and it's been on my WL forever.  I just finished A Sliver of Shadow by Allison Pang.  I thought it was much better than the previous book and I'm quite suprised there's only 1 more book to the series.

I just read Noble Blood (Gray Court, Bk 2) Author: Dana Marie Bell. I really like her stuff and now want the next one. Fits in several spots in the paranormal challenge. Was going to pick up Bec McMaster from the library. Steampunk is so much fun and I think it sounds good.

Never heard of the Gray Court series, but it's now on my list.  Thanks.

Jenny, definitly pick up Bec McMaster's book!  It was seriously awesome and one of my all time favorite reads.  If I still had my copy I'd post it to you  :)

I'm liking Benedict Jacka's Alex Verus series.  It's similar to the Dresden files, (lone wolf wizard gets sucked into problems he'd rather steer clear of) but still very enjoyable, the writing is good, and the world is similar but different, so it's interesting enough to keep reading.

Especially good if you are waiting for a Dresden fix.

I know I'm late to the party with these, but I've recently been blasting through these two series, and I really like them:

The Night Huntress series by Jeaniene Frost

The Mercy Thompson series by Patricia Briggs
