Reading Is Sexy

Anyone interested in buying me this mug? Please! ;)  I'll love you forever.

I've decided that I'd like to start posting more about the books that I read.  Books are a large part of my life.  I haven't decided if I'm going to do a review [I'm pretty awkward with reviews] or if I'll just write a little blurb about them [blurbs are more my style].  Maybe when I share whatever I'm reading then you can share what you're reading.  That sounds like a good plan to me.  What do you think?


These are the first erotica books that I've ever read.  It was quite strange, definitely a new experience.  They are BDSM eroticas; even weirder.  Each book focused on two main characters, but in the next book they would show up again.  If the author writes another I'll definitely read it.

This book was cheesy and predictable, but I still found it adorable.  It's another erotica, but I didn't realize it was.  I guess the title Slow Hands should have been a pointer.  The erotica kind of jumped out and smacked me in the face.  I never thought I would be a fan of the Harlequin books, but I guess I am.

Right now I'm reading As Young As We Feel by Meloday Carlson.  I've read some of her Dairy of a Teenage Girl books before.  What are you reading?

I'm reading the Sookie Stackhouse books. I'm on the last few pages of All Together Dead. I LOVE THEM WITH A PASSION AS FIERY AS A THOUSAND SUNS.

I love that mug!!! I've been reading more too-currently reading Confessions of an Economic Hit Man. Books are a wonderful escape for me :)

Ooh. Books are the best. I'm needing a few new one's right now. But I'm not into "chick" books. They gross me out. That's probably why I can't stomach porn either. I put them on the same level.

Right now I'm reading Salem's Lot. I know, an old one right? LOL. I'm also in the middle of The Gun Seller, American Psycho, and Russell Brand's memoire My Booky Wook. I'm not sure how that happened. I guess I forgot to take the book that I was reading with me on a weekend trip, so I had to start a new one. A few times. I have a ton of books still left to read that my husband has bought me over the past few months.

I need to find a GOOD book. My problem lately is I keep staring books that I just can't connect with and wind up reading 4 lame books at once. I miss the feeling of getting lost in a story that I had when I read Harry Potter and Sookie Stackhouse. I LOVE to read I am just in a good book slump so any good books you can recommend would be much appreciated!

Great idea for a post! Reading IS sexy. :)

I'm reading the Sookie Stackhouse novels as well but I also read Jim Butcher's series about a modern-day wizard. His writing style is sarcastic and funny. Sometimes I find myself giggling while I read. Good, quick reads.

I also finished The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo recently. GREAT book but it was a little difficult to get into. The author is Swedish and all of the names are Swedish. The main character is also a financial journalist so some of the financial politics take a little concentration. But the book really picks up and is totally worth it.

Ugh, I was making a long comment and then accidently closed the browser...

Holly - Harlequin books aren't always as smutty as that one. The Blazer series tends to be their most erotic, with Temptation being their second. Their other series tend to be more tame. Also - how did you like the Cherise Sinclair books?

For others - if you like Sookie Stackhouse and are interested in vampires + romance, I would suggest J.R. Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood series (Dark Lover is the first book). This is technically a romance series, but has a plot that spans numerous books and the main characters are in all books, but each book focuses on a different couple. If you'd prefer something more romancey with an overarching story, go with Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark Hunter series (Fantasy Lover is the first book). There's like 14 books in this series and there is an overarching plot, but it doesn't play as big of a role in the books as it does in the BDB books. More romance in these.

If you don't want to read romance books and would prefer Young Adult, try either the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer (which you'll either love or hate) or the House of Night series by PC and Kristen Cast (first book is Marked).

If you'd rather avoid vampires altogether, another good Young Adult book (which is the beginning of a series) is The Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray.

And if you're looking for an Epic Fantasy suggestion, then I'll point you to George RR Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series, starting with A Game of Thrones. This series is actually going to be a new HBO series starting in 2011 called Game of Thrones.

I am also obsessed with the Sookie Stackhouse (True Blood) books! I highly recommend them and the newest one is coming out in two months! My more serious read at the moment is the Bean Trees by Barbara Kingsolver and a few friends are recommending World Without End after I finish up my current reads.
