I'm Amaya Ellman, one of the authors here on Shelfari. I just wanted to introduce myself and tell you a little more about my books, which I think may be of interest to you.
If you enjoy gritty thrillers, for example, my short novel Slaughterhouse might be a good place to start. The book had been nominated for a prestigious award and even has its own website . . . http://slaughterhousethriller.wordpress.com/
Check out my profile page, too, if you get time. Really hope you enjoy my unique stories. Thanks,
I SAW, I SAW!! I was so excited! But I didn't want to be too excited! Ahaha!
Let's seeee....well, in your review it says you want to read more of McKinley, yes? I highly recommend 'Beauty', her re-telling of Beauty and the Beast! It's simple and sweet, but I love it to death. I cry every time. No kidding.
Pee ess, I like |3
It's like a blindfolded guy who's smirking because he's about to karate-chop something wide open and knows he doesn't even need to see it to do it......right? right?
You should also read Playing with Fire tales of an extraordinary girl by Gena Showalter.I just finished the second one (there are only 2 in the series) and they're fantastic. Belle is so sassy!!Its more about superpowers than vampires or weres so its something fresh =) How was forever? When I tried to read it before it was due I felt like it was dragging and I didn't get very far.
Mel! You should read the Night Huntress Series. I think you would like it. The main character is kick a** (can you believe it made me bleep that word? what the f***?) and the boy vamp is delicious. The first book is called Halfway to the Grave by Jeanine Frost. You should also check out the Midnight Breed series. The first book is called Kiss of Midnight and its by Lara Adrian. In case you were looking for some awesome books to read. One warning, the breed series is kinda similar to BDB but different enough that you don't care.
of course! J.R. Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood series is awesome! Again, adult but amazing storyline. Oh! And Jeanine Frost's Halfway to the Grave.. amazing. So far I am really enjoying Clockwork Angel (but I'm sure you've probably read it already). I have a bunch of books on my shelves and on my nook but I'm so freaking busy with studying to try and catch up.. sigh.. I'll get to them eventually! I really want to read Matched so let me know how those go =)
OK so Richelle Mead is a BA for her VA series.. If you don't mind reading adult novels, her Georgina Kincaid series is also amazing. Its about a succubus (you can only imagine where the adult part comes in) but she totally kicks a** and takes names. I haven't read any books of her other series though.
