I do not like The Luxe. But I'm only a hundred pages in and right now it looks like Gossip Girl in poofy dresses (double ick) so does it get better?

^^ Essentially, it is. It actually has a fairly good twist at the end, but I won't read the next few. THey're far too girly for, they remind me of my mum's Victorian romance novels. Ugh.

On Lady Knight- Tamora Pierce. Not sure what I'll read next...

^^Well after Lady Knight comes Trickster's Choice of course.

I'm giving up on The Luxe cuz really, it is SOOO not my style. Which means that soon I can start Red Moon Over Sharpsburg

Stay With Me.
I can't remember the author's name. But it's like a real-life book, and I'm never much into those ones so it's okay. I don't care for the author's style, things aren't very chronological even in dialog, so I get confused.

I have just finished the fourth book in the Harry Dresden Series which starts with Stromfront and absolutly loved it. it is witty, intellegent and has really good plot twists. can't wait to get the next one when it gets into the library. i am just about to start the Boy In Striped Pyjama's which apparently is really sad.

if you liked the Luxe then i recommend that you read A Great And Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray. it is a Victorian fantasy romance, and i loved it when i read it.

Thanks UnfreakinBelievable, that is definitely good news about SM! I was so hoping to be able to read another one of her books soon!

I finished Secret Life of a Vampire and the subsequent novel in the Love at Stake series by Kerrelyn Sparks, Forbidden Nights with a Vampire and they were really good. Can't wait until her next release in the series.

I also read the first book in a new series called the Marked series by S.J. Day. The first book Eve of Darkness was pretty good and I look forward to the next book. Very different mythology based on the biblical story of Cain and Abel which spawned the marked that work with angels and archangels to be the "bail bondsman" to go after those demons that have been judged. It is very interesting and it was a really good story.

Now I am reading The Accidental Werewolf by Dakota Cassidy. I saw it recommended on an author's blog I follow. It is the first of three novels, not sure how long the series will be.

I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE The Gemma Doyle books. Libba Bray is my fourth favorite writer. I'm still in shock over the ending of The Sweet far Thing and I absolutely abhore The Luxe
