10, 11 and 12 of 100
So let's see...what have I been doing over the last week and a half...um well not much really. The weather has been crappy and that really affects my mood. It's very hard for me to get motivated to do much of anything when it is grey and rainy. So I have been doing a LOT of reading lately. I have finished 3 books in the last 9 days and am about a 1/3rd of the way through a 4th. =D Hey I just noticed that I am right on track...12 books in 6 weeks!
Slave to Sensation by Nalini Singh is the first in her Psy/Changeling series. Lucas is a leopard and Alpha male of the DarkRiver Clan. He is also out for Psy blood, after a female packmate is kidnapped and heinously murdered. Sascha is a Psy hiding a deep secret, a secret that if the Council knew could get her killed. Lucas knows Sascha is his way "in"to the hive-like mind of the Psy. Both of them will discover things that will shatter the way they view themselves and those around them.
Kiss of a Demon King is by Kresley Cole...it is one of her most recent in her Immortals after Dark series. This is the first full novel I have read by Kresley and I am definitely hook. Yet another author I need to find everything I can by her!
"With one kiss, he knew she'd be his queen...
From New York Times bestselling author Kresley Cole comes this spellbinding story of a demon king fighting to reclaim his crown and the wicked sorceress who dares to use his most secret desires to thwart him.
His obsession: the enchantress who surrenders her body,
but not her heart.
Her downfall: the battle-scarred demon who vows to keep her at all costs.
They were never supposed to want each other this much…"
(quote taken from Kresley's website.)
Sabine is a powerful sorceress who can weave intricate illusions with a wave of her hands...Rydstrom is the Demon King, displaced by Sabines evil half brother...and her forseen mate. They both seek the same goal for very different reasons...or do they?
Lastly is Devil Bones by Kathy Reichs. I have been a HUGE fan of Fox's Bones with Emily Deschanel and David Boreanaz since it started. I have been wanting to read Kathy's books almost as long. I have been very hesitant though as many reviews I checked out said that the books are nothing like the TV series. This put me off reading the books I am SUCH a big fan of the show. But the other day I picked up Devil Bones at Wal-mart. The book is incredibly well written and rather technical, but not enough that I got lost. The reviews are correct, the books are nothing like the series. However this particular book had an interview with Kathy that kind of helped put things into perspective. One of the things I love about the series (other than Seeley Booth is Brennan's naive-ness. Her lack of people skills and well often subtlety are very endearing. The Tempe in the books is very self assured and even cracks jokes. This was just odd to me. But after reading the interview with Kathy I realized that the Book-Tempe is an older more mature version of the TV-Tempe. I can't say that I like the books as much as I like the series, but if you like murder mystery/crime dramas...Kathy Reichs books can't be beat!
