It's been quite awhile since I last spoke to you all. Life is constantly full of dramas.
I have been working full-time for an Airline company doing their seat selections and noting files for special needs. I enjoy the job itself but it's mentally draining. At the end of the day I find it hard to come online and review books.
I have been reading tons mind you and thought I would let you know about a few of my favorites while I have some energy. I promise to try harder to get back into the swing of things here and get a big party/giveaway going because it's been too long since our last.
The site is soon to hit 100 thousand views and that is something I truly want to celebrate with you all. You made it possible.
Alright, now on to the books. The most recent series I just finished is "Gone" by Michael Grant. It is a YA paranormal series. I loved this series. The characters are well rounded and the books are action packed.
I like how different this series is, it's a twist of the TV series "400 and "Lost".
I've linked the amazon page to this here pic:
Next book I'd like to recommend is Rachel Caine's newest Morganville Vampires books "Fade Out". It's another delicious addition to the series. The context remains the same but it's also action packed and full of intrigue. I liked the fact that Claire went out on her own, the down side was that there was a lot of pinning for her love Shane. That part I could have done without. Overall another great read though.
The next series I read that I fell in love with is Diana Gabaldon's "Outlander" series. Woot Woot for Time traveling!
Claire Randall, a former combat nurse, is back from the war and reunited with her husband on a second honeymoon--when she walks through a standing stone in one of the ancient stone circles that dot the British Isles. Suddenly she is a Sassenach--an "outlander"--in a Scotland torn by war and raiding Highland clans in the year of Our Lord...1743.
This book took me on an amazing journey. I learned so much history and enjoyed the ups and downs of living in the past. The characters were so well written that even now I feel like they are friends, a couple month after finishing the series. I highly recommend you give this series a try, it will keep you reading for quite awhile. The average amount of pages per book is 900. Enjoy!
Here is book #1 in the series:
Then there was "The Frost Chronicles" a whole new world to discover and read about. This is another YA series I read. I've been on a YA kick lately, looking for something new and the adult books all seem to be the same thing over and over where as the YA authors are really pushing out new and interesting series. The main character is this series is Lia Weaver. She lives with her siblings far from town in a world of cold and snow. They are always watching over their shoulder because you never know what may be watching you and stalking your every move.
This series really gets you guessing and wondering as to what is going on but at the same time you don't get lost in the intrigue because your learning the world with the characters. Try this series out! You will not regret it.
Last but not least is HIGHLANDERS!!! YUMMY! Janet Chapman has some awesome Highlander reads, every book I read was great. Very imaginative alpha men. If your looking for some Highlanders then Janet Chapman's book got you fix. Here's a few I read:
