Current: Desire Unchained- Larrisa Ione
Last: Angels' Blood- Nalini Singh

3) What book did everyone like and you hated?
Magic Bites by: Ilona Andrews. I don't "hate" it, but it's the only one I can think of. I didn't enjoy it as much as most people did. I like book 2 Magic Burns alot more.

4) Which book do you keep telling yourself you’ll read?
Pride and Prejudice

5) Which book coming out in 2009 is top priority to read?
There are about five or six that are must buys, but at the top of the list is Lover Avenged by J.R. Ward.

6) Last page: read it first or wait 'til the end?
With most books, I'll take a peek at the last page.

7) Acknowledgements: waste of ink and paper or interesting ?
I've been part of an Acknowledgement so I think they are pretty damn cool. It's always interesting to see who the Author thanks.

Any of the Shellens in the Black Dagger Brotherhood. ;)

To name a few: Mario Acevedo, Shannon K. Butcher & Megan Hart

Anne Frank: The Diary of A Young Girl

11) Which book has been with you to the most places?
Dead Until Dark- Charlaine Harris

12) Any “required reading” you hated in high school that wasn’t so bad ten years later?
Not so much a single book. More of a Genre. Senior Year I was forced to take Science Fiction class as an elective. There was nothing else left. At the time I wasn't a fan of SciFi at all. Now I love it.

13) Stephen King or Anne Rice
I have read both. But my favorite would be Anne Rice. That is when we was still writing her vampire and witch series.

14) Used or brand new?
Both. I buy most of my books brand new. But I do shop at Half-Price Books and I use the site Paperback Swap.

15) Have you ever seen a movie you liked better than the book?
There haven't been too many. The two I can think that come close is Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone & Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring.

16) Who is the person whose book advice you’ll always take?
AmyC & Barbara. I don't read every book they suggest, but a lot of them I do.

17) Recommend a series/ or book:
Eververse by: Stella and Audra Price

***I don't plan to tag anyone, but feel free to play.


  1. Oooo I LOVE the mists of avalon!

  2. Me too. It's one of my favorites.

  3. What a fun Meme, loved your #8 and I couldn't agree with you more on that! :o)

  4. I am in total agreement with number 15...The Lord of the Ring movies were much better than the book :). ANd I love the Harry Potter movies!

    This is a fun meme :)

  5. I started reading The Two Towers before the movie came out and never finished it cause I got side track by other books. Hopefully I'll finish it one day. LOL!

  6. I made it through most of The Two Towers before I gave up. I had already watched the movies by the time I started the books and already decided I liked the way they did the movies better! Not sure if I'll ever go back to the book. Maybe. I have this really nice leather bound in a case edition :). Someday, maybe!

  7. OMG, I peek at the last page too!! LOL!! I don't know why, but I can't help myself.
