So what have you guys been reading?  I’m a series kind of girl, myself…so if you have a certain series you’ve enjoyed reading please share it with me!  I’d love to make my “wish list” longer even though it’s already at FIVE PAGES!!! LOL! At the moment I have two more series on my bedside table----The Lord of the Rings series and the Narnia series. After those I have the O’Malley series waiting for me as well.  However, I have promised the hubs that I would read all the books I have now before I order anymore…anything to appease the bread-winner! LOL!

That’s it for me today!  I will see you all again soon!  {{{HUGS}}}

A new series for you (there are only two books so far)
A Discovery of Witches & Shadow of Night by Deborah Harkness

Try Jayne Ann Krentz (contemporary) writing as Jayne Castle (futuristic) and also writing as Amanda Quick (historical). She's got a couple of series that intertwine depending on the timeline (love that). She writes romantic suspense with paranormal/psychic nuances.

Robin D. Owens - Heart series (futuristic) and Summoning series (fantasy)

Christine Feehan - Ghostwalker series (contemporary paranormal/psychic) and Carpathian series (historical to contemporary vampires)

Wow! You have read a lot of series books. I have been reading the Booktown cozy series by Lorna Barrett. Have one more book to read in the series and that is "Murder on the Half Shelf". They are quick and easy reads. I am also reading the Oak Knoll series by Tami Hoag. Finished Deeper Than the Dead and going to read Secrets to the Grave.
