Finished Enoch's England's Perfect Hero and I can understand why some people kept it on their DIK shelf, it was just that good and I will be keeping my copy as well. The whole trilogy was good, but that was my fav of the three. I also started Courtney Milan's Unraveled, it is available in ebook right now. It is Smite's book and I am already entranced with him. She is such a talent, so much so, that I got up early this morning, just so I could read some more.

I ended up starting Nora Roberts' SACRED SINS. Not too far into it, but it's good so far.

I've sort of decided to get rid of most of my Roberts - she's so readily available both here and at the library that I should pull them to make room for newer books. OR, better yet, NOT fill up those emptied-out spaces in the bookcases. Major decision, believe me.

I pulled the first book in the Lara Adrian series but decided to wait until 2012.

I finished CM's Unraveled, OMGosh that lady can write. This entire trilogy has been phenomenal, but Smite's book was amazing and I had tears in my eyes when I was through with it.

DNF'd Where Have all the Cowboys Gone? by Kate Pearce. The story was ok but I couldn't stand that she was using the British spelling of words writing about a cowboy. Drove. Me. Nuts.

Just started Bareback by Chris Owens and it's ok so far.

I started Simply Forbidden by Kate Pearce.  I have loved this whole series, but I'm not thrilled with this one so far.  Lisette seems so immature, and I hate the fact that she doesn't really like Gabriel and he doesn't like her at all.  Makes it hard to believe the connection between them.

Squee!!  I know what's on my "buy" list today!

 

I've  been re-reading Dragonfly in Amber by Diana Gabaldon, mainly because nothing was jumping out at me yesterday when I was looking for something to read.

I just finished Enduring Light by Carla Kelly.  It is the sequel to Borrowed Light, Kelly's fist LDS themed romance.  I liked both books and kind of hope she does a couple more using some of the characters from the last book.  There are two couples she could tell good stories about.

Finished Thea Harrison's Elder Races 3.5 ebook and I just love this series. Love her wacky pairings and this was no exception. It was really good for a short.

I finished Surrender to Me (Wicked Lovers, Bk 4) by Shayla Black over the weekend. Nothing remarkable there, except for a very wishy-washy heroine who couldn't decide what the hell she wanted. Finished The Rivals (Settler's Mine, Bk 1) by Mechele Armstrong, and it was surprisingly enjoyable. I love a menage story that forces two male adversaries together in a mating bond. Good stuff.

Last night I started Raw Desire by Kate Pearce and it's definitely off to a shaky beginning. I've never met two more unlikable main characters. We'll see how it goes...

I read Thea Harrison's True Colors last night, part of the Elder Races lineup.  Loved it!  Hero and heroine both were awesome.

 

Now reading  Finished reading Tessa Dare's Once Upon a Winter's Eve   it was so good! I had not read the first in this series but I may go back and find them.  Really enjoyed the story.

Willa, the library database no longer has that easy to find New Book area.  This new database, while needed, is really frustrating.  (And I already have all three.  Plus the eBook.)

Last night I read Bodyguard (Shifters Unbound 2.5) by Jennifer Ashley.  Really great story and such a charming hero!

Today is Unraveled by Courtney Milan!

I finished Simply Forbidden.  I love Kate Pearce & have enjoyed the books in this series, but this one was a little bit of a disappointment for me.  <sigh>

I actually meant an Overdrive library, Emily. Yeah, losing the new books feature is a major drag. Hopefully they'll find a fix for that. The bookbag feature is nice, at least.

I'm reading Sharon Shinn's story in Angels of Darkness -- probably won't read the others, since they're attached to other series. Then I plan to finish up A Clockwork Christmas. Also have a Penny Jordan to read for a GR buddy read.

It just dawned on me this afternoon that there are only 16 more reading days left in the year! Too late to play major catch-up.Arrrggghhhhh..................

At work during lunch, I'm currently reading Anne Stuart's 1981 Candlelight Regency LORD SATAN'S BRIDE (a reread for me every few years) and enjoying it as much as before. I have one really good copy I may put on my Bookshelf; a 2nd copy that's postable but looks more used but is postable; and the unpostable copy I'm reading. I'm not fussy. The book is nice and tight but has liquid markings on it (hope it's coffee!), it being nice otherwise is o.k. for me.

I'm also reading Roberts' BRAZEN VIRTUE, and finishing up 2 audio books: JUSTICE DENIED/Jance and P IS FOR PERIL/Grafton.

I'm stealing your challenge signature Gail! With my TBR significantly reduced, catching up on series is going to be my main 2012 goal.

I just finished Courtney Milan's This Wicked Gift from the anthology The Heart of Christmas. It was a wonderful read!  Gail that is one of my favorite reads of hers. I read my copy so many times that I had to put tape on the spine. I am will do a stat thing too, but I am going to do it as an end of the year thing. I might set up a signature as well for next year. I am close to my GR goal though.
