    I am tearing through the Fever series by Karen Marie Moning. Really really enjoying them! I was up til at least 2am last night, couldn't stop reading. It's been a while since I was that in to a book!

    I have reread that series more than any other....It sucked reading during the writing as it took FOREVER for each one to come out.

    OMG I cannot even imagine. I have them all and the ends are always the worst cliffhangers. So glad I can just plow onto the next!

    A good friend of mine that has always had pretty much the exact same taste in books as I do asked me the other day if I had read that series. She was reading the first one and really liked it.

    It's on my to read and getting moved up now that I know more people that like it!

    Some of my favorite scenes ever are in that series too.....have you gotten to the invention of the MacHalo? I literally loled which is rare for me in a book...to the point I had tears running down my face. I actually cried during a couple scenes too, again, a very rare thing...just so good. I do not have them on my nook as I got them predigital but am SO tempted to get them anyways. Darn it, now I need to go hunt them up to read yet again lol

    eta: Happy early bday to me, just bought the bundle lol

    Just finished "The Perfect Woman" by James Adrus. Not high quality literature, but a decent story.

    Just got a handful of free ebooks for my kindle. Started Rushed by Brian Harmon yesterday. The writing is a bit juvenile, but I'm about to leave on a 2 week business trip, so having something light to read when I don't have a tone of brain power left is nice.

    I mentioned to my BF's family last night that despite loving the movie and Hunter S. Thompson, I never read Fear and Loathing. His dad loaned me his copy. :D Halfway through it now and somehow I still haven't had strange dreams. Haha.

    Yeah, read it! I was very uncharacteristically having issues really getting into books for a while there, I went through 3 or 4 and just didn't get hooked. So it was extra nice to get totally involved with these ones. I stayed up really late reading again last night, they're messing with my sleep!

    Yes, I loved the MacHalo haha! Particularly when Barrons walks in on her dancing around wearing it, I definitely laughed out loud.

    I'm just over halfway through the last one. Really curious to see how everything is resolved! But I also don't want them to end. Do I try to draw it out or just get it over with?? I hate the end of a good series :( :(

    I just finished Words of Radiance. Brandon Sanderson is the man of my dreams.

    Finish it...but I am bad at rushing through to get to the end as fast as possible. However, the series isnt really over. Dani's series has started which is a continuation of the fever world, first book is out, second was already pushed back a year...but Barrons, Mac, etc are featured in them as well.

    I have awful self control when it comes to books, so I will undoubtedly be finished it today. That is really good to hear that it's not totally over though, phew!

    Have you read her Highlander series? I have it on my kindle so I'll start that next I think. Curious if it is as good...

    Only read one or two of them...was not really that impressed but I read them before the fever series so I have debated going back and reading them again to see if I like them better....IMO no where near the fever series though.

    Aww, shucks :( Well I suppose I'll give them a shot after I'm finished with these. I think I'll reread the Fever series, too, after a while. There are only some books that I like to reread, and these will definitely be on that list.

    I just read a book "I Hope You Find Me" by Trish Marie Dawson...

    Sooooo soooo good.

    It sounds so cliche, but its about the world after a horrific virus kills almost everyone but this young woman survives and starts looking for other people and everywhere she goes she leaves notes hoping someone will find her also..

    I <3 this book.
