Reading Meme Day Sixteen, Seventeen & Eighteen

Once again I have fallen behind on the reading meme.  *sigh*  It doesn’t matter how many times you fall as long as you get back up, right?  Let’s see if I can’t get back on track.

Your guilty pleasure book (Day Sixteen)

I’m going to break the rules a little…again…and list a guilty pleasure series.

Oh Ms. Lorelei James what can I say other than I’m totally hooked on your Rough Riders series.  I consider these guilty pleasures because these delicious cowboys do very, very naughty things to their cowgirls and/or cowboys.  Thank the heavens for my Kindle 3 because I couldn’t getaway with reading the books without the covers raising a few eyebrows.  As it is I have to hide out while reading the e-books because my face starts to turn red and I get all flustered.  If cowboys and hot smexin’ is your thing I highly recommend this series.  It’s important to mention that I blame Fiction Vixen for bringing these to my attention.

What books are your guilty pleasures?

Favorite trilogy or tetralogy (Day Seventeen)

Okay so here’s the thing.  Almost all of the series I read have more than 3 or 4 books.  So I’m going to highlight a series that I’m currently reading that has grabbed me by the shirt collar and refuses to let go.

Before I start gushing I have a confession to make.  I had a difficult time getting into the first 2/3 of Darkfever because I had a hard time relating to Mac.  *ducks behind computer*  So I took to the Twitter airwaves and after getting a little push from @smexybooks, @fictionvxn, @JulieYMandKAC and @harleyquinn0887 I stuck with it and now I can’t read the darn books fast enough.  KMM does an amazing job of giving you just enough to keep you coming back for more.  For those of you who are re-reading the series or need a place to get stuff off your chest, Smexy Books and Fiction Vixen have been having discussions about the books.  Discussions for Darkfever and Bloodfever can be found here and here.  The discussion for Faefever is scheduled for Monday, December 20th over at Fiction Vixen.  I’d like to thank Julie over at Yummy Men & Kick Ass Chicks for threatening to beat me up encouraging me to read this series.

What are some of your favorite series?

Favorite book cover (Day Eighteen)

Oh reading meme there you go again with the picking a favorite thing.  OBVIOUSLY picking one book cover is going to be impossible.  So I’m posting a few that caught my eye this year.

  1. Who me? Threaten? Never *innocently bats eyelashes* I am SO happy you are enjoying the Fever books and that you are taking part in the discussions. It really is great to get the perspective from someone who is reading for the first time as opposed to those of us who have had over a year to think about it and think and think. LOL

    Hmm...Favorite series. I LOVE Ilona Andrews' Kate Daniels and Carolyn Crane's Disillusionists series. A lighter series I loved about wedding planners was the Bride Quartet series by Nora Roberts. Actually, I could go on and on about favorite series. BDB, DH, Sweet, Fever, Demonica, Dreg, Downside...and on and on!

    Guilty pleasure...I think Olivia Cunning's Sinners series is going to be my guilty pleasure read. Only one book so far but it was hot and fun.

    Covers. I LOVE the cover to Lover Mine. It's not very artistic but it serves it's purpose. lol And again, I know there are many more out there but I just can't pinpoint any right now. LOL

  2. LOL!! The discussions have been lively and mind melting. It's crazy how many different theories people can come up with.

    I just checked out the first book from the Bride Quartet series. The covers stood out and then I read how much you enjoyed so I thought I'd give them a shot.

    That's the one about the rock band, right?

    Thanks for stopping by Julie. =)

  3. I LOVE love the cheese factor in the titles of your guilty pleasure series. "Rode Hard, Put Up Wet." Oh my gosh, I'm dying.

    So if I'm in the need for smut, I now have a series to check out. On my eReader. ('cause I sure won't be showing off those covers to anyone...)

  4. LMAO! Um, yeah the titles are pretty hilarious but, it's pretty good smutty reading. And yeah your e-reader is the way to go if you're trying to avoid public embarrassment.

    Thanks for stopping by Jessica. =)

  5. Hey, I am checking this blog using the phone and this appears to be kind of odd. Thought you'd wish to know. This is a great write-up nevertheless, did not mess that up.
