So, I'm going back and reading posts from before I joined the group and was just reading through your 12 lists. I have to tell you how much I love that you put erotica as one of your groups. It's the grouping many read and few acknowledge (although I have to say my own small erotica collection is looking a bit dated and in desperate need of replenishing and refreshing). Heck, I haven't even read much in the way of romance novels in probably 25 years. Your selections and reviews just might get me to buy some fabulous new books for my bedtime reading. I've already added Dom of my Dreams, Blushing Violet, and Petals and Thorns to my wish list.
Glad to help. ;)

Great categories :)
Agree. Totally love her zombies because they are the new vamp comment! So true and funny!
I aim to please. ;p
I don't know if I can get my heard around Zombies being the new Vamps. Does that mean I'm supposed to find them sexy? 'Cause - ew!
NO not sexy.
I've read The Forest of Hands and Teeth, which is zombie-esque. But I'll be reading Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion and that will be my first true zombie book. Have you tried that one yet?
Who me? No but they were just talking about it in the other group and I was told I had to so...I guess I have to lol!
I guess I didn't address my question to anyone, did I?
The rec in the other group, that's why I'm reading it, too. Peer pressure...
I have not read either of those. I have Hands and Teeth on my TBR list.
The only books I've read with zombies in them are Deadtown series and some of the earlier Anita Blake series had zombies in them. (I miss the old Anita)
I miss the old Anita too Jennifer
I can't read books about zombies, I mean we all reading this books for the sexy alpha males in it so I'm not sure how a zombie fit in
So far the only books I've read with Zombies is the Deadworld series and they are not the main characters. But the zombies are different, they are more like vampires. There was a plague that hit the Boston area and killed 100s of people and 3 days later they all woke up as zombies. They think and talk they just happen to be undead.
Your thread looks so colourful now. All pink and blue and orange :)
LOL! I had a slow afternoon at work. I was working on my lists.
I liked Married with Zombies by Jesse Petersen and the second in the series Flip This Zombie. I started to read a book by Biance D'Arc called Once Bitten Twice Dead that has zombies too. It wasn't capturing me very well so I ended up taking it back to the library unfinished. I will probably check it out again because I hate leaving things unfinishe
*snort" I'm the same way, Christin
It all the books that I have read in my life I have only left one unread.. and I've tried to read that one twice.
What was it?
Port Mortuary by Patricia Cornwell
Oh, I've read a few Cornwell books. They are a bit gruesome. I'm not really into crime any more and haven't read that one.
I liked the beginning of the series. I enjoy crime books, but I tend to spread them out with romance and such in between. The last few books seemed to strayed from the original Scarpetta personality. This last one was so unbelievable that i just couldn't finish it.
I used to be that way. I had to finish it if I started but now I'm like screw it, if doesn't grab me. My TBR pile is to big to waste time on a book I'm not into.
Two categories are DONE. And a few are close to being done.
great job Jennifer!
Hurray! I've inadvertently read quite a bit out of a few categories, but am trying to spread it around rather than work straight through any one group as I like to read several varieties at once. Isn't it satisfying though to see all those little checkmarks or cross-offs in a list? Happy reading!
I didn't plan it that way. It just happened. LOL
Now that I'm looking I need to work on a few I've not read any books for.
Problem I'm running into is that some books can be in more than one category.
