Continuing my tour of Lilith Saintcrow with
I'm liking the involvement of the were - Saul - he's a nice color to the badassery.
I love New to me and Oddball Paranormal. I think Shapeshifters and Changelings should have their own category (which I did) since they are popular paranormal topics, and since they're neither oddball or in heaven or hell, nor under life after death. I didn't get into Happy Holidays, Happily Ever After and It's the end of the World as we know it.
At this point, I have had too much of the paranormal already! So I'm reading other genres. Lol! I must say, I still read a lot considering... Still I look forward to whatever you want for our reading challenge in 2017, Melissa.
I have lots of platinum and overachiever/paranormal junkie badges - yey me! Great job for my first reading challenge!
Well - the I Want if NOW category is hard for me too. I'm always reading whatever is next in the games, so even when I get in a book that I've been DYING to read, it often has to wait until my game reading is more caught up. SIGH..... It's really hard sometimes too.
Next month I may see about switching around a few titles. I've only got 4 each in the Holiday and the Red categories. I might be able to incorporate them somewhere else in order to complete another category.
I just finished 2 series that I had over looked for years. Both were great in that they weren't run of the mill type Para rom. One was by Nancy Collins-Right hand magic, left hand magic and loss of magic. All three were good the last was great kept me up late to finish. I also would recommend if you all missed them like I did that Zoe Archer -Stranger, Scoundrel, and two others were good and worth the read. I am pulling out books I haven't gotten to for a long time and reading without having to fit a catagory. Really pitching books that are not engaging.
Tentative 2017 categories:

Melissa - love the new categories! - Cathy - Dang girl!! I usually read a book a week - I am having dog issues (my two girls started fighting ..Ugh) so i have read one book in the last month!! Jeez :(
Melissa love the catagories, but I have promised myself to read from my stack of TBR only (well except the books that come in because I can't pass up a great deal at Amazon, Thrift books, Library book sales or WL books that come in)
I've had a really hard time getting back into reading since my father's death. Concentration is hard at times.
The last couple weeks I finished the following:
Continuing the Jill Kismet series - I'll finish it out, but, I'd like more relationship building and a little less fighting and running willy nilly. Let the girl sleep once in a while, or just bond with her man!
This anthology had two books by Erin McCarthy in her Vegas Vampires series which I've read and enjoyed, and the other two were from authors I haven't read but were interesting reads.
Lots of different types of paranormal characters. Good plot and characters. Book 2 is out now too
Thanks Jeanette. I miss him so much some days, like tonight, it really hurts.
This week I read
continuing this series. I think this girl really really needs a chance to eat, sleep, and just chill! The ending made me have to grab the next (and final) book to be sure things got better.
I was able to sneak in another 2016 book, Archangel's Heart: Guild Hunter, Bk 9 by Nalini Singh. It tore at my heartstrings. The love between Elena and Raphael just keeps getting deeper and the Cascade IS back. More of Elena's family history is discovered and delved into in more juicy details. One great book for my keeper shelf!
Just finished Laurell K Hamilton's most recent Anita Blake book. Surprising how a book with this much sex and violence can be so boring. That said, this one felt like it was edited. Not the usual train wreck. Just slow as molasses.
Train wrecks are at least entertaining.
Emily - I agree the main storyline was weak in Crimson Death, but, I rather enjoyed delving into the interpersonal issues with Damian and Nethaniel.
This week I read
Very enjoyable series. Our main character, Emberly is a phoenix. It is nice to have different paranormal characters. Book one was very good.
This week I finished
I love the Immortals After Dark! I love Kresley Cole! I wish I could live in the world of the Lore (but maybe not during Accession)
My final book of this year is
I like Yasmine Galenorn's writing, and I think this series could really go somewhere interesting if it can get out of its own way!
