A Book Binge!

Reading - one of my favorite escaped.  It's been hard lately to find the time to just sit down and devour a good book, but I finally made the time and read 4 books in one week and am working through 2 more.

First up - Fifty Shades of Grey, Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed.  For soft core, romantic porn, it doesn't get much better than this.  It's right up there with the Sleeping Beauty Trilogy by Anne Rice.  It is the epitome of all the things that women look for in their erotica.  Christian is a strong, powerful, rich and enigmatic character with a deeply troubled past looking for more than the empty professional life he has.  Anastasia is a meek, tender hearted, giving woman who wants to save the world and lives in the world of books surrounded by the works of Jane Austin and Thomas Hardy.  When their world collide mixed with wonderful writing and a clever use of many of the major romance novel tropes that will keep you reading rather than doing the things you should be doing.  Also... it's hot.  It just is.  Well worth the time to read.

Then I devoured the most recent Sookie Stackhouse novel.  Charlaine Harris has got to do books more than once a year! I cannot wait until next May to find out what's going to happen to Sookie and Eric and the Bill and the rest of the Southern Vampire crew.  Ahhhh!

I'm also working through reading A Clash of Kings but as much as I love the story, I'm finding it hard to keep reading.  It's just difficult to get through. 

Since I loved the Fifty Shades trilogy a friend recommended Whip Smart which I've just gotten downloaded to my Kindle.  I'm looking forward to digging in while at the court house today for my car accident. 

After that, I don't know what I want to read.  Any recommendations out there? I like a little bit of everything and am always hoping to broaden my horizons with another great book!

  1. Check out the October Daye series by Seanan McGuire

    Also if you haven't read them yet, try the Alpha and Omega series and the Mercedes Thompson series both by Patricia Briggs (they take place in the same world)

    I could list a shit ton of YA stuff but I'm not sure you're into that :)
