Currently Reading:

  1. Enjoy your reads - looks like you have a plan...


  2. These look like fun, intriguing possibilities. Enjoy! I really liked Shiver.

    Mine is here

  3. Check out THEY BITE --my co-author and I had a wonderful time writing that book, and we interviewed all sorts of folks --John Carpenter, Peter Straub, Rachel Caine, etc, It's fun and browseable.

    Happy reading!
    Jonathan Maberry
    Co-author, THEY BITE!

  4. I have those days where I have no idea what I want to read next. It all depends on my mood!

    Hope you have a great reading week! :D

  5. E.H> - Thanks and no, no plan, other than to read like crazy. This is my last week of break before classes start again, and no holidays to distract me...

    Laughing Stars aka The Stark Raving Bibliophile - I've seen so many good things about Shiver. I'm almost nervous to start it. If that makes sense?

    Jonathan - It certainly looked interesting. =) I've already read the Intro and I'll definitely at least flip through it.

    Ruth - It's even more difficult when you know you have SO many great choices. I've seen and read great things about several of my possible choices. ::sigh:: Decisions...

  6. I vote for "Shiver" by Maggie Stiefvater to be!

  7. J. Kaye - But then I'll have to wait to get the 2nd book, and I know I'm not going to like waiting. =P

  8. Jo, it didn't have that cliffhanger ending. I want to read her other series before I read this second book, so the waiting isn't so bad for me.


Please feel free to comment. I love to hear from you!
