Melody said...

Hey Julia, great list!

I read Cindy Gerard's Bodyguard series...and I have these 2 books by Lynn Kurland & Brenda Joyce. I know we will be reading Dark Seduction with Alice later since she got the book now! ;P

Julia said...

Hi Melody - it scary that we have smiliar authors's books in our TBR piles *grin*...did you know that "Into the Dark" is Cindy Gerard latest book? It just came out. I know we'll be reading the 4th book together in near future ;)

Yes - we would have to read it sooner so that Alice can join us. But I'm still reading the thick "Spy" book hehe..thanks for posting!

Melody said...

LOL. Indeed it is, Julia. It's not a surprise to me that we have lots of books in common. ;) Yep, I know Into the Dark is Cindy's latest book; I haven't bought that yet but I will.

Looks like we will read Dark Seduction before we read Cindy's book, hehe.

Alice Teh said...

Ladies, it's moi... *WAVE*

Ooooo... I took a sneak peek into Dark Seduction and hope I could handle it. I did a random flip somewhere in the middle. It's erm... 'steamy'.

The Gatekeeper said...

Oh so many books, so little time. I haven't heard of any of those books. I'm reading, "That Hideous Strength" by C.S. Lewis right now and planning to read "Shadowmancer" after that. I'm afraid to add another to my TBR list. I'm one book behind for this year. In any case, nice list and have a great weekend.

Melody said...

Alice, you aren't supposed to peek! Kidding... LOL.

Julia said...

Hi ladies *waving at Melody, Alice* Yep pretty soon we will read the book together, and yeah Alice, you should listen to Melody - no peeking! LOL Geez now you got me tempting with that steamy remark *give Alice a one eye stare and tapping feet* You're suppose to be good LOL!

The Gatekeeper - Hi it a pleasure to see you. I never heard of "The Hideious Strength" or "Shadowmancer" but you'll going to have to let me know how you like them :)

Thanks you ladies for visiting my blog. It pleasure to chat with you :)

Alice Teh said...

I can't help peeking. I'm blaming the devil for this...

*Alice hums a silly tune, trying to avoid Julia's piercing one-eye stare*

I promise I be good from now on. *GRIN*

Darla said...

Oh, Julia.... Somebody neglected to tell me about Close to You, or I'd have bought that one, too. ;-)

Looking forward to seeing what you think of these.

Christine said...

I haven't read any of these. I can't wait to read your reviews to see if there are any I'd like to add to my towering TBR pile. :D

amy said...

neat list for the week, cant wait to read the reviews

Michelle Pillow said...

Great list :)


Anonymous said...

Interesting list; I haven't read any of those! Two books I've recently bought and added to my TBR pile are Cormac McCarthy's The Road and Elizabeth Kostova's The Historian. :)

Julia said...

Darla - *trying to avoid her's stare* Oh, did I forgot to tell you? *GRIN* sorry. I thought you knew :)

Christine - Most of the books I listed are Romantic Suspense. But Cindy Gerard and Luann McLane are usually sexual tension and can be steamy ;)

Amy - Thanks for the compliment!

Michelle - Thanks for complient and visit.

Thomma Lyn - I never heard of McCarthy or Kostova before. Might go check it out.

Thanks everyone for stopping by. I will try my best to write a good reviews and hope it entice you to read the books too. I'm nervous but cross your fingers that the reviews will turn out good, yeah I stink at it sometime LOL!

Happy Reading!

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

Hey, Julia!! You're teaching me new things today -- the only author on your list I've heard of is Lisa Jackson and so far, I'm not a huge fan. Maybe that'll change... we'll see...

Thanks for visiting, of course! Can't wait to see what you think of this new reading list of yours.

Julia said...

I'm teaching you something new? well that is great *GRIN*! I never read books by Lisa Jackson before. But I heard some say she is good. Thanks for visiting my blog :)

Rowena said...

Oh wow, that's a great list of books you got there, I'm going to link you on my blog so that I can come back and read what you think about those books, I've got my eye on some of those books and I'd like to see what you have to say about them first before I go back and get beans! I love reading new book blogs! =)

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

spyscribbler said...

My TBR pile has never been quite so out of control as it has been this year. I've found so many great books through blogging!

Next up for me are Demon Angel, by Meljean Brook, and her recently released sequel, Demon Moon.

Happy TT!

Julia said...

Ho Rowena - Glad that you found this blog helpful to your TBR piles *grin*....I will try my best on reviews. Hope you come back here again!

Spyscribbler - Mine TBR pile is going crazy too. It seem my TBR pile is growing and growing. I have found many books through online friends ;) I never read book by Meljean Brook, but would love to hear what you think on the book :)

Thanks you both for visiting my blog, have a good day. Happy Reading!

Christine said...

Can't wait to hear the review on #11.

I enjoy reading your lists, I always find some great new interesting reads to pick up.

Hope you have a fun weekend!

Dragonheart said...

Enjoy your new books! I'm not familiar with any of those authors, but my human mom may have to try reading some of these!

Tink said...

I'm afraid I don't know any of the books on your list. Let us know how you like them. My TBR and wishlist keeps growing, but there's always room for more. Today Colleen Gleason's "Rises The Night" arrived, so i have a new book to start with!
Thanks for visiting my TT.

Cybermate said...

Wah! how you read so many books at the same time wo?

Julia said...

Christine - I hope some of these books are worth adding to your lists *grin*

Dragonheart - Tell your human that if she read any of these books, to let me know *grin*

Tink - I be sure to let you know how I like these books. I have heard of Colleen Gleason but haven't read her books yet. Please let me know how you like it :)

Cybermate - Hi, I believe you're a friend of Alice? Any friend of Alice is welcome here :) Yes I read so many books, but not at the same time. I'm not speed reader...not like my dear friend Darla, who I wish to have her smartness and speed reading *grin*.

Thanks everyone for stopping by. It always a pleasure to see you here again. Please stop by again soon! :) Have a nice day!
