I picked up Bloodlines and have the first in Dark Swan series from my local library. Right now I have a lot out from the library and reading by order of due date. When I get to them I will post here though.

I can't wait. Her VA books I felt were worth the purchase used. I have a feeling I am going to want to own all her books. What didn't you like about the Georgina series without giving to much away?

It's not that I didn't like it. I liked them just fine. I just loved VA & the Dark Swan series more than I did Georgina's. I'm not a BIG love story reader and I just felt like her and Seth were too mushy for me. But I still read the first 5 back to back. I like Richelle's writing. The characters in Georgina's series are very easy to fall in love with.

Since I didn't get a chance to read Bloodlines or the DArk Sawn series. I went to my local used book store were the books are only .50. I picked up the first 2 books in the DS series. I did buy the first four in VA although b/c it was a trade book size I purchased it for 18 which I still feel isn't bad. My hubs doesn't get why I buy books I have already read. :roll: Gotta to keep the books I love!

I'm so disappointed on how behind I've gotten in my reading :(! Between my classes, hanging out with friends, and keeping in touch with family, I haven't had much time to read these past few months!
I am on my winter break and I hope to catch up on my reading as well as the Vampire Diaries!

I wanted to stop by to say hello to everyone and I'll try to read Bloodlines as soon as I can!
Thanks Chrissy for my banner:

Hmmmnnnn...in that case I think I would enjoy Georgina Kincaid's series better. I'm into mushy stuff :lol: . It's on my absolutely to be read list after Black Dagger Brotherhood series, 2 more books to go...

I like how Sydney's character has developed in Bloodlines and that you get to see the usual characters from a different point of view.

With Sydney, I like how her perception of certain "types" of people are changing. She is becoming more open and occassionally relaxes too :) Her and Adrian will be an interesting relationship to read about.

When is the next book out do we know?

Raine~ I did see that but I probably wont buy it. I did however end up purchasing VA at a used bookstore even though the books look like they have never been read, the first 2 books of the DArk Swan series and one of the Georgina series the On Top one.

Also Raine ~ I think you know this but I also have all but 3 of the Black Dagger brothers. Just waiting for my used bookstore to get them. ;)
