  1. For the past few years I've been devoted to urban fantasy and paranormal romance. My all time favorites are Kate Daniels by Ilona Andrews, Mercy Thompson by Patricia Briggs, and both of Nalini Singh's series. Just to name a very few.

    1. Kate Daniels is my absolute favorite. I had the opportunity to meet Ilona and Gordon this past weekend. I handled it exactly as expected. I babbled like an idiot. Sadly Patricia Briggs was not at the Giant Book Fair. I have not read anything by Nalini Singh, but I have her Psy-Changeling series on my wish/tbr list. I've read Kate twice and I am on my second round of Mercy!

  3. I read a lot of everything, but when I get burned out, I go back to science fiction romance or urban fantasy. Or PNR. I can't wait for Nalini Singh's new Psy-Changeling book to come out. But there are so many good books, and so little time!
    Happy upcoming birthday!

    1. I have the Psy-Changeling series on my wish/tbr list, but I have not read anything by her as of yet. She was at the Giant Book Fair in Chicago on 4/14, but I did not get to meet her :( Right now I am on an Urban Fantasy kick.

    1. Thank you for the birthday wishes! I've read all of those. In fact I'm rereading the Mercy Thompson series right now.; although, I haven't been able to stomach the Anita Blake series since Bullet. Urban Fantasy with at least a touch of romance is my favorite. Good Luck with the giveaway!

  5. My favorite author is Jacqueline Carey! I love her Kushiel's Legacy Series! I'm also a Twilight person. And since reading Twilight I've gotten into a lot of young adult series.

    1. I have not heard of Jacqueline Carey. I will have to look into her. Have you read the Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead. I'm very picky about my YA, and Vampire Academy made the cut as well as the spin-off series, Bloodlines. I had taken a reading break for many years and I credit Twilight with reigniting my desire to read. Since you like Twilight and erotica, have you read the Fifty Shades trilogy. Either you love it or hate it, I love it.

    2. And... I apparently have no clue how to use question marks :)

    3. Jacqueline Carey isn't young adult though. It's very much adult. She has her Kushiel's Legacy series that I love. The first one is Kushiel's Dart. I have not read the Fifty Shades Trilogy. I'm picky about my YA books as well. I love that we have goodreads. I love going through and looking at the suggestions and searching around. I've put so many books on my "to read" list it's not funny! LOL. I'll still get them from the library though, read them, and there have been a couple I just couldn't finish because I couldn't get into them. If you like Twilight, have you tried the Evermore series by Alyson Noel? That series has a "twlight" feel to it. I think you'd love them!

    4. And I love Laurell K Hamilton as well! She's probably my 2nd favorite author!

  6. Everything. I love to read everything. As long as it's nonfiction, I'm willing to touch any and every genre. And I'm not kidding.

    Can't say I have a favorite series. There's so many awesome ones that bring out the fangirl in me. If I had to guess though, I'd probably say that my favorite author is Nora Roberts. But I'm slowly going back to the cop out answer of not having a fave... lol

    1. I second and third your vote for Ilona Andrews. I had the opportunity to meet Ilona and Gordon recently. They were fabulous.

  10. I read a lot of fantasy, some sci-fi, and some trashy (or hilariously bad) paranormal romance. I am a huge fan of the Women of Otherworld series by Kelley Armstrong, the whole Mercy Thompson series, Kate Daniels in all her g(l)ory, and many others, but my favorite series is The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher. Happy birthday a little early, it's my birthday today! :)

    Oh, shameless plug. Here's the blog I review for: http://myawfulreviews.blogspot.com/

    1. We have similar reading tastes. I recently reread Kate Daniels and I'm currently rereading Mercy Thompson. I'm not much for rereading, but they are so awesome it is like reading them for the first time.

  11. Favorite series...will always be Harry Potter. I'm one of them :), but after Harry, I'm in love with Cassandra Clare. Unfortunately I've been a bit behind in my reading so I'm not on top of any new stuff :(

    And....Happy birthday!

    1. Thank you for the birthday wishes. I've read and enjoy all of those except Gena Showalter. I LOVE Jennifer Crusie. I had the opportunity to meet her a few years ago at a signing for 'Maybe This Time.' It was quite an experience.

  14. There are so many books that i enjoy reading....right now i am really into the Cassie Palmer series as well as the Greywalker ones. Anything to do with suspence and the paranormal really. :)

    1. I loved Cassie Palmer. Greywalker is on my tbr/wishlist, but I probably won't start it until shortly before the 3rd book is released. I find that I do not have the patience to wait for each subsequent book on brand new series. Especially if I really like the book.

      Delete
    2. OH MY GOSH!! I absolutely LOVE Cassie and Karen Chance is kind of sort of pretty much my favorite author (well only at the moment, but it has been this moment for a while). I recommend reading her other series, taking place in the same world but with Mircea's daughter, Dorina Basarab, as the main character. And a new Dory book comes out this October! :D

      Delete
    3. Lol. I've read Dory's books too :-) You'll be hard pressed to find a good Urban Fantasy I haven't read or haven't got on my tbr/wishlist.

  15. I mostly read YA so I have a ton of favs. to name a few, Jennifer Armentrout, Lauren Oliver, Lisa Schroeder. I could be here all day LOL!

    I also love Janet Evanovich, Kristan Higgins, Patricia Biggs, Ilona Andrews and Jeanine Frost to name a few. :)
