Update on reading, books, etc.

I've acquired a few books lately, but have been remiss in talking about them.

From the library bookstore I picked up four Lisa Kleypas books for three dollars. They look brand new, read once by someone who doesn't crack spines. So I got Prince of Dreams, Midnight Angel, Somewhere I'll Find You, and Only With Your Love. Secrets of a Summer Night was also there, but I already have it.

I was also at the bookstore on Friday where I ordered In Enemy Hands by Michelle Perry and A Woman Scorned by Liz Carlyle. The Perry is supposed to be coming in about a week and the Carlyle in a few weeks. Said it was back-ordered. While I was there, I bought Doppelganger by Marie Brennan and Charmed to Death by Shirley Damsgaard.

Also finished reading Strangers in Paradise Pocket Book 1 by Terry Moore. Was really good. Don't plan on a separate post about it, but I had fun reading it and hope to read more if there are some at the library.

What else...oh, I also finished reading In the Thrill of the Night by Candice Hern today while in Iowa City. There's a romance book club at the Barnes and Noble here and this book and Jude's Law by Lori Foster are on tap to be discussed in April (at least according to the newsletter). Ive never been there, but thought I'd try going this time to see what it's all about. I haven't decided if I'm going to try to read the Foster yet.

Post on the Perry book when you read it. I've been looking at it, but haven't heard anything!

Oh! My Amazon order shipped Friday, so Deep Breath is on its way!

And I'll definitely post about the Perry. I think Paperback Reader is going to read it this month, too.

I read the first mystery that Shirley Damsgard(sp) wrote. I really liked it. I look forward to your opinion.

Oooh ... so you went on a acquisition spree too. Would love to hear what you think of the Kleypas books.

Nicole-I read Jude's Law by Foster and I have to say I didn't like it that much. It just kind of throws you into the story without really introducing you to the characters and giving you any information about them.

I didn't like Jude at all. He comes across as a punk...at least IMHO.

Just read two new books by Amy Fetzer. Awesome!!! Excellent sex and the suspense was great. I'll get the titles and put them on my blog, cuz I just woke up and my brain is dead. :)

Have a great day!

LOL yes she had but I only give you and tara shit about Foster. And honestly Jude's Law is eh, about a C read. So...

Did you get A Woman Scorned new? It is really hard to find. I just lost an Ebay auction because I didn't want to pay $30 for a secondhand book!!

Nicole said...

Marg, don't pay used! It's being re-released. Right now it's limited, but you can order it and I think it might be out more in June. But Barnes and Noble said there was no problem ordering it.

Marg said...

I'll check and see if it is being rereleased here!
