PostSubject: Name your Literary Poison ....   Sat Feb 26, 2011 1:16 am

Every now and then we will collate all the recommendations here into one list, so the thread doesnt become too big. All the Outlander posts that were here are now gone ..... sorry Sad
But I figure you wont mind repeating your love of the series again, and again, . . . and again - once the Outlander thread is up and running!
So this is the list we are pimping at present (those that already have their own author threads are not included) :

Gwen Hunter - RAPID DESCENT
Shannon Delaney - 13 TO LIFE
Jeri Smith-Ready - SHADE
Gena Showalter - LORDS OF THE UNDERWORLD
Jennifer Estep - VENOM, WEB OF LIES, SPIDERS BITE
Maggie Stiefvater - LAMENT, BALLAD
Rachel Caine - OUTCAST, WEATHER WARDEN, MORGANVILLE VAMP series
Melissa Marr - WICKED LOVELY series
Kressley Cole - IMMORTALS AFTER DARK series
Darynda Jones - FIRST GRAVE ON THE RIGHT
Deborah Harkness - A DISCOVERY OF WITCHES
Lilith Saintcrow - DANTE VALENTINE and JANE KISMET

A couple of series I am very excited to hit are the PsyChangeling one by Nalini Singh; and Downside Ghosts by Stacia Kane. Oh and the Dark Hunter series, and Midnight Breed! Has anybody read the LA Banks books? Either the vamp or the were one?.... Did I really say 'couple'?

I read and promptly quit LA Banks vampire books. I forced myself to read the first one and gave the second one 100 pages. I haven't read her other series. The other three I would recommend reading.

I haven't encountered a lot of people who have read the LA Banks series, and I think that speaks for itself. Midnight Breed is pretty good.

I was thinking I never did pimp Meljean Brook's IRON DUKE. I loved this book and am looking forward to the next one.

Midnight Breed is a GREAT series! If you haven't read them already, give them a try.

Swede--Midnight Breed will remind you a bit of BDB. By the second or third book, they take on a character of their own. Very, very good. In no way should you even think of moving them ahead of Outlander. There is nothing to compare Outlander to.......being incomparible. :sunny:

I do like the Midnight Breed books, when does the next one come out?

I can't believe I haven't pimped Gail Carriger's Parasol Protectorate books. Funny, clever, and steampunky. They have romance, but nothing explicit.

The next Midnight Breed book is due in June.

I read part of the first Parasol Protectorate book and couldn't stop comparing them in my head to another series. I just gave up despite the fact it was a good book. The world building was good too.

The Amelia Peabody mysteries by Elizabeth Peters, which are quite good actually. Not at all paranormal.

Swede, I read the first two of her vamp books and honestly, they were the worst books that I have ever read.

I'm sure some people like them but I am not one of them. I think I would rather read the dictionary then read any more of that series.

About to start Seanan McGuire's 4th October Daye book and hopefully there will be a lot of the very hawt King of Cats (and hopefully he won't date her fetch)!

Have any of you read anything by Joe Hill? I ran across a book today on my amazon recommendations called Horns. I read the previews. It is about a guy, Ignacious (Ig) who wakes up from a wicked night on the town with an equally wicked hangover and a nice pair of horns. Apparently the horns have given him the ability to make people tell him the truth. According to the reviews the results are hilarious!! So, I downloaded it for kicks. While looking over the rest of the reviews, a bomb dropped on my head. This guy is Stephen King's son. So, in case anyone is interested, I will post my opinion later.

I'd be interested in your opinion on that. Thanks, 2shay.

Sounds interesting shay, let us know what it's like.

I've read Joey W. Hill, and her books are certainly horny. But not in the same way.

I have started reading Adrien-with-an-e English, by Josh Lanyon ..... Cannot think who set me on this path Wink anyway I am enjoying it - is it wrong to hope that Adrien goes to Ball and Chain to check on Riordan??

He'd have a heart attack, or Jake would kill him, or both.
