thanks I'll check it out.
I saw your review for Beautiful Creatures. I have to agree with and I watched a movie 2 days ago and thought I didn't like either one that much.
You should really read The Tiger's Curse series. It was one of the best series I like.
The 1st is The Tiger's Curse by Colleen Houck. It is about a girl getting a summer job before college. The job is a circus and she has to feed the white tiger. If you want more info you can look at my shelf.
Thanks for following. Have you read the new Morganville Vampires by Rachel Caine called Fall of Night?
Thanks for the following, I just followed you back. You have a wonderful shelf! I'm sure I'm going to find a few must owns on there :D. I always need more books. Love your kittens, I have my rescue puppy sleeping under my desk with me at work right now. See you online.
Hi Kitty! I just finished reading Origin and I would have to say it was ok. It started off really great but started to lag a bit. Also, some parts of the story weren't fleshed out enough for me. (I won't mention which parts just in case you decide to pick it up) I'm glad it's a standalone because I don't think it would do well in a series. Hope that helps!
I'm so glad that you like the series. The 4th book, Black Lament, just came out last week. I picked it up but having had the chance to read it yet. I have a million library books to get thorugh first. I hope you end up trying and loving a few of the other series as well. Yay!!!
Yay! I'm so excited to look up the series you reccomended. I'm always looking for new stuff. I hope you enjoy what I suggested. I was a huge fan of the Shifter's series. I was Team Jace, all the way. Some how I always seem to be rooting for the underdog.
My birthday is right around the corner and you better believe that I've been asking for books :) Now hopefully I actually get a few.
I can suggest a few series that I really enjoyed.
Secret McQueen series by Sierra Dean: It's high action with a kickass heroine. Has werewolves and vampires.
Gwen Sparks series by Stephanie Nelson: Very likable, witch, heroine. Has a mix of supes throughout series.
Abby Sinclair series by Allison Pang: Very flawed heroine. Mostly Fae but has other supes as well.
Black Wings series by Christina Henry: Fallen angels, Fae, and Death agents. I really enjoyed this series. It's very different and well written.
Void City series by J.F. Lewis: Written by a man. Multi character POV. Dark fantasy. Mostly vampires.
Charley Davidson series by Darynda Jones: Great series. Charley is very likable. Story is very different and has a good mix feelings and responsibility. Female Grim Reaper.
Soul Screamers series (YA) by Rachel Vincent: I love this series. It's my favorite YA series. The heroine is a bean sidhe (banshee). Lots of good teenage drama.
Cassie Palmer series by Karen Chance: My favorite series. It's action packed and has a great story line. It's not for everyone but if you like the first book...the series only gets better. The world is set with vampires and magic uses out in the open.
Dreg City series by Kelly Meding: Dark fantasy. Heroine is a human but ends up with magical abilities. She wakes up after dying and has to figure out what happened while everyone is looking for her. Very fast pace and high action.
I really liked, Sweet Evil (YA) by Wendy Higgins. It's like nothing I've ever read. It's pushing the lines of YA. I can't tell you what type of supe is in it because that's half the fun of the book.
I hope you try a few of these. Let me know if you do read any and what you thought of them.
Hey :) I'm a big fan of the Chicagoland Vampire series. When Ethan was killed, I was very mad. I had to put the book down and then reread it a few days later knowing the out come. I couldn't come up with a rating until I did that. You are correct about Ethan coming back and I admit that Neill did a really good job with the way he came back. I really dislike ghost relationships and I really thought that was going to happen. I wasn't looking forward to that out come. Thankfully that didn't happen. I won't give too much away but I will tell you that it was magic. The fun part is the where, who, and how. The last two books seemed more about building the storyline as well as Merit growing up. I really enjoy the series and feel they are worth reading. It's all building up to a huge show down. I for one, am looking forward to it.
Holy!! Wow, that's a lot of books. lol! :)
Sounds kind of complicated but in a good way. lol! I look forward to reading the series. How many books in total are there? :)
So the books in the series are about different people from time to time?
Sounds really interesting. Ive only ready Kelley Armstrong's YA trilogy. Ive been meaning to read one of her adult books but keep forgetting which one is the first book in that series.
I thankfully just have enough patience for my favorite books that don't take as long. For hers since it's that many years I normally end up forgetting until the day I spot it on the shelf at a bookstore. lol!
I haven't read those books yet but I know I have the first one on my bookshelf to get. Is it anything like Patricia Brigg's Mercy Thompson series?
Hmm, the first two books are definitely more like light reads. The third and fourth get a lot darker. Although if you don't get into the series consider yourself lucky, since the author normally takes four to five years to finish a book and she still hasn't even decided how many are going to be in the series.
