Summer Reading Plan

Hey everyone hope you had a great holiday weekend. Mine was filled with family, writing and movies. I managed to see both Night At The Museum 2 and Terminator this weekend. Enjoyed the heck out of both movies by the way. So i've seen all the big blockbusters so far this season. Wolverine, NATM2, Terminator and of course my favorite Star Trek! I'm sure I will be seeing lots more this summer but for now my attention is turning to my summer reading list.

I have a huge and I mean HUGE pile of books in both my paperback stack as well as my virtual stack of stories waiting for me to read them and for the month of June I am going to put a huge dent in them. I get so excited about new releases that I buy them as soon as they come out and then half or more go into the TBR pile to be read when I find some time. Does this mean I won't be buying new books this month? HAHAHAHAHA. Yeah right.

This is where I need your help. I want to buy the latest and greatest according to you. I'm happy to buy a book based on the book cover and the blurb but I find myself enjoying the ones recommended by friends the most. So i'm going to post a list here of some of my older books in my TBR pile so you know what I am reading in June and I would love it if you would tell what I MUST add.

Here is my reading list for June and yes some of these will be kind of old but I am determined to hit some of those that I have been eyeing for a while.

Lover Avenged by J.R. Ward
Burning Wild by Christine Feehan
Happy Hour Of The Damned by Mark Henry
Heart Of The Wolf by Terry Spear
The Magic Knot by Helen Scott Taylor
Rogue by Cheryl Brooks
Tempt Me With Darkness by Shayla Black

Okay so the list is growing a little long and it may be July before I get all these finished. (I do have to write as well) But go ahead and hit me with your favs. I need to know what i'm missing.

Also on a more personal front...Lucas, book one of the black cougar series, came out in print last month. Squeeeeee!!!! Here is the blurb again:

Kira MacDonald is in trouble. Plagued by false visions and erotic dreams of a man she’s never met, she fears losing both her psychic powers and her sanity. The cure? Finding and bonding with her mate. The stubborn red-haired warrior might not want one, but fate has other plans, plans that include her rescuing Lucas Gunn.

As the Guardian of his shape-shifting clan, Lucas Gunn lived a quiet, solitary life. Until he was kidnapped, examined, and tortured. Now imprisoned, his only tie to the outside world is the memory of his dreams and the passionate woman who appears in them. He thought she was nothing more than a vision. Then she came for him.

An uneasy alliance, a mating call that won’t be denied, rituals that must be honored, and unrelenting enemies who will stop at nothing to get what they want. It all comes together in the first of Eliza Gayle’s sensational Black Cougar Series. Passion and pride. Duty and danger. In the end, there’s really only one choice…for Lucas.

The paperback can be purchase at MBAM here and Amazon here.

And next week several us from the Authors After Dark blog will be in Ohio at the Lori Foster event. If you are anywhere near there or planning to attend the event, please stop by and say hello!

Love, Love Lover Avenged. It was awesome.

Went to see Star Trek this weekend finally and it was great. Actually wouldn't mind seeing it again. I've also seen Wolverine but that's it so far.

A couple other books I'm really looking forward to this summer are Skin Trade by Laurell K. Hamilton
Atlantis Unleashed by Alyssa Day
Branded by Fire by Nalini Singh
Hunting Ground by Patricia Briggs

Oh all of those look good but OMG yes Nalini Singh. I haven't read any of her books yet but I did buy Angel's Blood and it's sitting on my iTouch. It is definitely going on the June list! Thanks for reminding me.

I'm definitely going to see Star Trek in the theater again. I loved it!

Thanks Heather.
