    Mine, of course. I'm reading it as I write it. It's fantastic!

    Also, Up Against It, by M.J Locke. It's fantastic, too.

    Forgive me while I flash my noob - is there a place here in the forums where we can see a list of AWers' books? Or do you just find them through discussions and signatures?

    Currently reading Long Time Coming by scarletpeaches. Before that, I read Light Switch and the sequel Reconstructing Meredith by thethinker42.

    Gotta love the Kindle.

    I read and very much enjoyed Kat and Mouse: Guns for Hire by Abner Senires (Ace Tachyon). It's tough, gritty, and loads of fun.

    I got a facebook announcement from Willie Meikle that said he was linking to his book, MIDNIGHT EYE FILES: THE AMULET, for a free kindle download. I said, what the heck and downloaded it. I'm about a third of the way through and am really enjoying this Private Eye story that takes place in Scotland.

    Not currently, but I recently finished a few. Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet (instantly went in my top 5 fave books) by Jaime Ford, Hunted by the Others by Jess Haines (excellent UF), and Becoming Mr. Brooking by Marguerite Butler (beautiful historical romance).

    Does Nora post on AW under a pseudonym or have I just missed her completely? *lol*

    Right now I'm reading Jill Myles' My Fair Succubi, and enjoying it. Definitely the best of her three Succubi books. Then again, I've always been a sucker for Zane over Noah!

    Just about to finish The Speech of Angels by Sharon Maas (aruna on AW). I had read her other books before - Of Marriageable Age and Peacocks dancing - and only picked the current one when I discovered her identity. I am a fan and look forward to her next book.

    Break by Hannah Moskowitz (Shady Lane). It arrived this morning and I started reading when I opened the package. I only meant to read the first few pages or so but a few hours later I had finished the whole damn thing. It's one of only about 3 books that I've ever read that's had me in tears. Beautifully written and I loved the characters

    Just spent 3 hours finishing up Stacia Kane's "Unholy Magic," book 2 of her Downside series. Jumped up thinking, "I'll go get book 3!" and then remembered that with the local Borders closed the next bookstore is 15 miles away.

    Crap. And the library doesn't have it, for some reason. So I can't get it until next week, when I'll be down near the bookstore.

    Unless I make a special trip. Which I might, because I really want to continue on with the story, like right now. Or I could download it onto my phone, maybe. But I'd like to have a paper copy.

    Just finished Red Hot Fury by Kasey MacKenzie, and loved it. A little slow in the beginning. Lot of backstory and world building (I was completely immersed in her world), so it was necessary. I hate reading an UF that doesn't explain anything, or that just info dumps. Casey did it well. The last half of the book was action-packed, and I couldn't put it down. Heroine was one of my faves. And there are several little twists at the end. Cannot wait to pick up the next one.

    Last week I read Kevin Hearne's Tricked. Liked it but thought it wasn't as strong as the first three books. Probably because I really like Leif so...yeah, I'm not saying more than that. Read the books and you'll see what I mean.

    And now that I'm looking for a new book to read, am strongly considering Stacia's latest, Sacrifical Magic. Love the Downside series.
    Give it your best shot!

    Just finished Last Will by Bryn Greenwood (Redscylla).

    One of the most perfect endings, ever.
