2nd Blogoversary Celebration - Day 2
Welcome to day 2 of the week long celebration for my 2nd year blogging anniversary! I've gathered a few of my book loving friends this week to stop by and share with me their must reads...you know, the ones they are always telling me about but I just haven't been able to squeeze in yet?! Today, Melissa from My World...in words and pages is here. Melissa and I have worked on a few book club reads together this year and we're always chatting about our mutual lack of time to read, lol. Today, she's going to share her version of the 5 Urban Fantasy reads I should read (when I finally have the time):
Thank you for inviting me over to chat about Urban Fantasy must reads. :) I love sharing books with friends, and learning about so many new ones too! I worked on coming up with ONLY 5 Urban Fantasy reads, I think would be wonderful reads for you. And boy was this a tough one. There are so many great books out there. You have read many great sounding ones (which have been added to my TBR pile or WANT list) and there are so many great ones out there that neither of us have touched on yet. But, only 5 is a hard number. But I narrowed it down as best I could. :)
So here we go in no particular order...
~ Tempest Rising by Nicole Peeler - This series is just plan fun. And there is a great story too. I found myself loving the mystery and story and the fun of the characters an the men as well. One to make you smile.
~ Mind Games by Carolyn Crane - This is a great original trilogy. Of course at this moment only the first 2 books are out. The third will be out in early 2012. I LOVED the "magic" setup here, the mental distresses of people. It is such an inventive way and the story is amazing!
~ Dead, Undead or Somewhere In Between by J.A. Saare - The main character here, Rhiannan, is a strong headed girl. She does have a strong mouth too, but I really enjoyed this character and the way of the story. If you don't mind the language, I think you would enjoy the main character and the her story into the dead world.
~ Red-Headed Stepchild by Jaye Wells - Sabina is a rough main character as well, half vampire half mage. But the story is fun with her side kick and the hot mage she meets. Another fun read with fast pacing and loads of action.
~ Bloodlines by Skyla Dawn Cameron - Yeah, we have our vampire here. But I love the take on vampirism here along with the story we get. This poor girl doesn't seem to get a break. And the action follows her around, or maybe she finds it.... But the characters and storyline are great!
Okay, there are 5. I could go on forever for sure. If anyone wants any suggestions I'm always willing to give them. :)
Do hope you enjoy!
And happy Blog Anniversary! :)
Thanks again, Melissa, for stopping by and contributing to my growing TBR. Nicole Peeler is at the top of my "must purchase" list, but I'm sure I'll be adding even more to that scary pile :-p
And, to my awesome readers, remember to stop by each day to see what's up next and what surprises I'll have in store (especially on Friday ;) Please feel free to comment with more suggestions of great UF reads...
