I don't know if this will get many replies but I thought it could be fun to share what books are being read. It could be a great place to get book suggestions as well.

I'm currently reading Blue Moon by laurel k Hamilton.

It's part of a series. It's about a vampire hunter. It's my guilty pleasure read for the month.

Love blue moon :) <3

I've read all of laurel k hamiltons books but I like the merry gentry series better than the Anita Blake one. The Anita Blake series just kind of.... Gets really bad after a while. None of the ones that have come out in the last five years have really been good. But I love the early work!!

I'm currently reading Meridon by Phillipa Gregory

I read the merry gentry series... Like the first two I want to say. I can't remember where I stopped though and so haven't picked it up.

It's sad to say I like it so much because of how sexually explicit it is? I'm not normally into that kind of writing either. I know the first one was good. I might try rereading it though and see if I can remember it or not.

I really like Anita Blake. Its sad to hear that it gets worse. I'll see how many books I can stomach.
But, it is my guilty pleasure so I might end up reading them all.

That becomes a big part of the Anita Blake series as well. I forgot that by blue moon, it's not very explicit. It gets to a point where it's very, very, make you blush in public, explicit. And then the plot falls apart.

The Merry Gentry and Anita Blake series are both erotica but the Merry Gentry series has a better storyline. I'm a bored housewife so erotica is just fine with me If you don't want to read heavy, graphic smut I recommend Kim Harrison as another author to look into. Her books are fun, exciting, and sexy but not graphic or smutty. She'd get an R rating where Laurel K Hamiltons books would get a XXX rating

But laurel k Hamilton is my weakness too so ive read all of them even if I am asking myself "why do you still read this? It's so bad now!" Well damnit, I'm invested! I've been reading them for 11 years at this point.

I'm about to start The Blood Countess by Tara Moss. I found it at work today with the second book in the series, The Spider Goddess, and they're both signed! I work at a second-hand store so signed books come in from time to time. It's great.

 

Books I've started reading recently and do intend to finish include:

The Shining by Stephen King

The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs

Immortal Remains by Rook Hastings

A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin

I Was a Teenage Fairy by Francesca Lia Block

 

Can you tell I have a habit of starting new books before I finish the last one. I either really have to be in a reading mood, or it has to be a super good book, for me to finish it in one go. Because of this bad habit I've only finished 3 books this year. I'm going to start reading for at least 1 hour a day so that should help.

 

I love to talk about books if they're YA, and/or involve fantasy/paranormal elements. The books listed above should give a hint to what I'm into!

Do you like Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children? My English teacher gave me a copy but I haven't gotten around to it yet.

I haven't read too much of it yet, but it's really good so far! I'd recommend it.

V.C Andrews is good. I think thats the same author. I read heaven but I read it so long ago I can't remember everything. I also read flowers in the attic and all the accompanying books.

about to start on my yearly re-read. i still haven't read all the supplemental content. it's always exciting to see which character will resonate most with me because it changes every time.

UNLESS i get my hands on a copy of 'a confederacy of dunces' over the next couple days because i really should read that finally now that my best friend has just finished and has gone apeshit for it. i've been meaning to read it for years.
