So, why am I re-reading Lover Avenged? Because the BDB series by J.R. Ward is simply amazing!! And Lover Mine recently came out, and there were all these details I did not remember. So I went back and started at the beginning and am now almost finished reading the series for the 2nd time, which is good- because the new one comes out in early 2011- Lover Unleashed, Manny and Payne's story. So excited for the new book! Mostly for the continuing story of Qhuinn and Blay. I love them! The BDB series is easily one of my top series of all time! Thank you, Warden, for this marvelous world!
I am also in the middle of Black Magic Sanction, another series I love. Kim Harrison has created a wonderful world I wish I was a part of! And I would love to hang out with Rachel Morgan! :) I haven't finished yet, because my reading time is limited being home with the kids all day. You wouldn't think it would be, but one has very little free time when you have to take care of 2 kids and the house, and everything else going on in my life. So far, it's a great book, though. I started this series almost at the beginning and can't wait for the next installment, Pale Demon.
Lastly, I have been reading Skin Trade for a while now, trying to slog through it. Laurell K. Hamilton is probably one of my favorites of all time. She really got me into this genre almost 15 years ago, I think. (Though I was reading vampires in jr. high.) And I have been with Anita since the beginning. For some reason, the books just keep getting harder to get through. It's not that I don't enjoy them. I do. I can't explain what's going on. Maybe they're too long and I need to just sit and read more. :) Anita has little quirks, though, that kind of drive me crazy. I like her Merry series, as well, and would like another installment of that series. I do have Flirt and Bullet yet to read when I finish Skin Trade.
I wish I could put up my TBR, but it is probably close to 200 books. And so far this year, I've read 41 books. Hopefully, this blog will help me to better archive my reading. I may end up slowing down here a bit, as I am the new 8th grade teacher at St. Mary's, I'm taking 3 independent classes to finish up getting my teacher's license, and I have coaching to do as well... So bear with me. :) Enjoy! Leave comments, so I know you were here. :)
