So. Much. Reading.

I made the mistake of starting New York To Dallas last night before bed, so now I don’t want to do anything but read. And, according to the B&N product description this is number thirty-three in the series. Thirty-three! If you’d ever told me a series would not only hold my interest but still engage me to the exclusion of everything else after thirty+ books, I’d have laughed at you. (Amazon | B&N)

Once I finish that, there’s Everything I Know About Love, I Learned From Romance Novels from the fabulous Smart Bitch, Sarah Wendell. I’ve been excited about this book for a long time and I look forward to savoring it. (This is the first book I’ve bought in paperback in I don’t know how long. That’s how sure I am I’ll love it.) (Amazon | B&N)

And after that I’ll be reading Doukakis’s Apprentice because it scored my trust network hat trick (enjoyed by Jane, Sarah AND Angela). Being a New Englander, it might be a little tough to not mentally replace Doukakis with Dukakis, but I hear the book’s good enough so I won’t care long. (eHqn | Amazon | B&N)

And if you’re looking for an emotional romance? Get Wanted By Her Lost Love by Maya Banks. It’s the second book in her “Pregnancy & Passion” miniseries from Harlequin Desire. (I keep typing Silhouette Desire and then I have to delete it and write Harlequin Desire.) So, yes, Maya’s a friend, so you might think I’m biased. And I am, probably, a little bit. But this story grabbed me by the throat and didn’t let me go. I honestly didn’t see how these two were going to live happily ever after so, once I started it, I couldn’t do anything else until I’d read all the way to the end. So good. (Preorder from Amazon | B&N or available now from eHqn ebookstore)

And then there’s a new Mallery and another new Mallery and a new Harrison and…I have a book due November first. Gah! So tell me what you’re reading!

    Only His by Susan Mallery, Animal Attraction by Jill Shalvis, The Goddesses of Kitchen Avenue by Barbara Samuels who is a genius, and The Kingdom of Childhood by Rebecca Coleman.

    Inside Out by Lauren Dane, and I’m savoring every single page! I love the In Death books!

    I’m saving New York to Dallas to listen to on a really long car trip I’ve got coming up. I actually prefer the In Death books on audio because the narrator is so darn good. It’s got me actually looking forward to 9 hours in the car (each way).

    Today I started reading Maya Banks’ second book in her The McCabe Trilogy, Seduction of a Highland Lass and I only read about 20 pages so far but I just know it will be a great book.

    Next on my list are: Jill Shalvis new book Animal Magnetism, Bad Boys Do by Victoria Dahl, Slow ride by Erin McCarthy and tons of other books that I pre ordered and I can’t wait to get like Wanted by Her Lost Love by Maya Banks, I really enjoyed the first book in the series!

    Loved New York to Dallas. I think it’s the best book since Innocent. And it’s #41 if you include the novellas.

    I’ve got the new Victoria Dahl trilogy (plus novella) to read (well three of the four, waiting for Real Men Will to release). And a whole bunch of other stuff. Not to mention all of the rereads I should do having spent a small fortune on Harlequin Treasury titles last month.

    I’m reading pretty much reading what you’re reading and the new Jeffrey Archer “Only Time Will Tell”. This is the 1st book in a five book series, and had me captivated from the start.

    I just purchased and downloaded: Animal Attraction by Jill Shalvis, Slow Ride by Erin McCarthy, Serpent’s Kiss by Thea Harrison, Chosen by Fate by Virna De Paul and then I went and downloaded a couple that I couldn’t download on the release day: The Darkest Surrender and Seduction of a Highland Lass. Luckily, all of my midterms are over now :)

    Yesterday I started and finished Animal Attraction by Jill Shalvis so today I started Serpent’s Kiss by Thea Harrison. I loved Animal Attraction obviously since I could not put it down. I’m very excited to start Rune’s story in Serpent’s Kiss. I’ve always liked his character.
