What's Happening?

What's been happening since the beginning of the year?  My drive to and from work have been very enjoyable.  Over the past month I've listened to Cast in Moonlight & Cast in Shadow (The Chronicles of Elantra)  by Michelle Sagara.  This has been a very fascinating series so far.  The Characters, the story, the people and environs keeps you on your toes.  Following along, listening as the story unfolds has been a great way to spend the three hour round trip drive to and from work. I love how the people and the lands come to life.  The story of Kaylin and her quest to stop the killings of children is very gripping and fascinating.  There are 7 books in this series so far. I listened to the "prequel" Cast in Moonlight which is a free download from and that made me get the 1st book of the series, "Cast in Shadow." I'm looking forward to getting the rest of the series: Cast in Court Light, Cast in Secret, Cast in Fury, Cast in Silence, Cast in Chaos & Cast in Ruin. 

I'm now listening to Lover Enshrined (Black Dagger Brotherhood) by J. R. Ward.  What can I say ... I love these books!! The characters are awesome and the stories are exciting and gripping and keep you wanting to know more about these awesome Vampire warriors and the Shellan's (mates/wives).  It's been years since I read "Lover Awakened."  This is actually the 3rd book in the series but it was the first I read and the story of Zhadist and Bella caught me up and has never let me go. It took me a while to be able to find the 1st book in the series, "Dark Lover," which is the story of Wrath, the blind King and his Shellan, Beth.  I can't say it enough, this is a fantastic series.  There are 10 books out now with the next book, "Lover Reborn," coming out March 27, 2012.  I can't wait!!  This is definitely one of those series of books that either you love or you don't.  There isn't a middle ground.  Next book I'm downloading from is going to be the 7th book in the series, "Lover Avenged."  I only have 2 hours left on "Lover Enshrined" and that will barely last me my morning half of the drive on Monday. 

I've also managed to re-read a number of the Honor Harrington series by David Weber.  I finished "Echoes of Honor" and just last night I finished "Ashes of Victory."  "War of Honor" is the next book in the series and I'm looking forward to that one again as well. 

I think my next Kindle book I will read is going to be "The House of Sandstone" by KG MacGregor.

The House on Sandstone

Here's what Amazon had on it:

Product Description

Twenty-five years ago, Carly Griffin left Leland, Kentucky – sure that it held nothing for her future. Now weary of living overseas for one consulting project after another, she’s glad to have two months back in Leland to relax with her aging parents.
When she catches a glimpse of her high school friend Justine in the doorway of her elegant home, she is surprised by the warm, familiar feelings stirred within.

Justine Hall made different choices, returning to Leland after college to marry and raise two children. Now divorced, she walks a fine line between sanity and hell, struggling to reconcile the sexuality she can no longer deny with the expectations of motherhood and mores in a small town.

After that I have a number of books on my TBR list:

An Alpha's Path (Redwood Pack) by Carrie Ann Ryan
Hailey's Coyote (Bear Canyon Shifters) by Dawn Smith
Whispers in the Dark by Maya Banks
To Command and Collar (Masters of the Shadowlands) by Cherise Sinclair
Bodyguard (Shifters Unbound) by Jennifer Ashley

Just to name a few! 

Hope everyone is having a great year and I hope your reading list is getting longer by the day!

Keep Reading!
