    Thank you all for the other recommendations. I'm going to see what my library has to offer.

    Right now I'm enjoying the Night Huntress series - by Jeaniene Frost a friend recommended. Bones is entertaining I didn't want to get into another series, but this was worth it IMO.
    I have heard of the Night Huntress series but haven't had a chance to pick it up between my writing (and since I do book reviews) a list of "need to read" books longer than my arm! Oh yah, and taking care of my son, lol. But I will add that if you think it is worth the read :-).

    As a bookaholic, I appreciate recommendations. Besides KMM, of course, a few of my other favorite authors are Kelley Armstrong (adult and YA books) and Katie MacAlister. Both have great plots and character development (and some intimate scenes). I find it really frustrating when authors write the same story with different character names and locations and/or forget to have a plot to connect the action.

    I also enjoy the Harry Potter books and the Twilight books. I really enjoyed the Host by Stephanie Meyer as well as the Gemma Doyle books by Libba Bray.

    Then it definitely sounds like I'll have to make room on my reading list for her! Thanks!

    I have a couple more YA book recommendations:
    Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater and Daniel Waters' Generation Dead series. They're all very good books.

    I can't put these books down! I'm on book 4 of the Nigh Huntress series - As much as I hate that there is nothing after it (for a while anyway), I need to do things around for the holidays I just adore Bones! Wow is all I can say!

    Are any of her other books just as good?

    Thank you sarah. It's great to see names I don't recognize. I'll check them out as well. So true, not enough time. One of the reasons I love January, it's a good month to read.

    Thank you Irina - I'm adding to my list.

    I completely agree. I get tired of the same stories. That's one of the reasons I love the Fever series and now the Night Huntress series. The plots are different than anything else I've read. I like to be surprised. I enjoy the romance/intimate scenes, but I want a story to get into as well.

    I liked the Twilight books. I never read The Host. I didn't know if that was SciFi which I stay away from. I'm more into Urban Fantasy/romance, Supernatural/Romance, Regency/Romance (oh and the classics, but I don't need recommendations on those).

    I also enjoyed the Sookie Stackhouse series because it had everything I liked, including some humorous moments

    The Host is really good - it is not what you think of as SciFi. I don't really read scifi either - but after reading Twilight and I liked them, I tried the Host because it was the same author. Glad I did. It is very well written - loved the story and hope that she writes a sequel - it is begging for a continuation of the story. I think you would like it.
