This morning I had an appointment and knew I'd be in the waiting room for a bit so was looking for a book to bring with me.

On my To Read stack I found the urban fantasy "Unholy Ghosts" by AWer Stacia Kane - I'd bought it several weeks ago but hadn't started it yet, beyond the few pages I'd read in the bookstore.

(Yes, I'm one of those people who still go to bookstores.)

Wow! I am so blown away by this - reminds me again of how many different people we have here at AW, with beginners rubbing elbows with those who have established writing careers.

It also makes me feel kinda bad about my own writing in comparison, but that's a different story. :cry:

So, whose book are you reading? Fiction or Non, Paper Book or eBook, what's in your hands?

Yesterday I read "Arbor Day" by Manuel Royal in Short Story America. Delightfully twisted in its understated way.

Currently reading The First Ghost by Soccer Mom. I betaed it quite a while ago, and it's so neat to see its final incarnation. It's a charming and humorous read. I wish I could be as funny as Soccer Mom in my own writing!

Going shopping with Soccer Mom and Bubastes for fu
Funny--I'm reading Soccer Mom's next release, Death By Scandal, which is coming out August 1.

Okay, okay--I'm actually editing it, but who wants to be picky? Besides, it was a good chance to plug the book. :p

I read it quite some time ago, but Jamie Ford's Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet is wonderful. My MIL borrowed it two weeks ago, finished it in two days and then gave it to her sister to read.
My kids loved Dee Garretson's Wildfire Run.

I just read Beyond Friends by Xondra Day. (Brainstorm77) Next AW up is Heart's Desire by Marialyss McKinley (Regdog). Oh, and I'm reading the newest Celina Summers, but y'all don't get to read them until her agent sells them. Nyah! Nyah!

Juniper, go ahead and get all of Stacia's Downside books. I stayed up all night finishing the last one. So good!

A few weeks back I read Invincible Summer by Hannah Moskowitz (Shadylane)
It was the first ever AW author book I picked up (that I know of lol) and it won't be the last. I have tons of AW'ers in my TBR pile.

I've recently read both Kevin Hearne's first novel Hounded and A Devil in the Details by K.A. Stewart. Both were very entertaining reads.

A couple of months ago I finished Bedtime Story by willietheshakes (aka Robert J. Wiersema). Great book!

The only AWer book I've read (that I know of) is Thor by Wayne Smith (aka wayndom). I didn't know about AW at the time. One day I was perusing a thread and for whatever reason wayndom was describing the plot of his book to illustrate a point and I was like "OMGoshcraplouise! I've TOTALLY read that book!" It was awesome. The book was awesome, too.

Okay, *technically* I'm not currently reading any AWer books, but I've really, really been wanting to pick up both Stacia Kane's Downside books, and also Gini Koch's Alien books (username JeanneTGC). And eventually, I will get to read them! Eventually!

I just read Hounded by Kevin Hearne (Oberon89) a couple of weeks ago and I was hooked. Interesting characters and great humor(laughed out loud quite a few times.) Really eager to read the 2nd book(Hexed.) This might be another must read series to add to the shelf.

I'm going to check out other AWer's over the next few months as well. Should be fun.

I've read BREAK by ShadyLane. Loved it and reccommended it to all my friends (although I can only get it via Amazon because I'm in the UK).
