I was mesmerized by We Need To Talk About Kevin, by Lionel Shriver.

This was one of the most disturbing, but brilliant books I have ever read. Painful to read, but worth every second.

The first three books in the Sword of Truth series.

When reading them I did not go to classes, shower, cook, clean, or talk to anyone until I was done.

I love that Im not the only one who can get completely sucked into a book that I literally do nothing else except eat (while reading). I have had days where I just got dressed then sat down and read, stopped for dinner then carried on well into the early hours of the morning.

There is nothing quite like a book that stays with you long after you have finished reading it either. I sometimes feel like Im in a daze after reading some really great stories.

I loved that book! This week it's all about paranormal romance marathon. I'm reading through Shelly Laurenston's shapeshifter books. Her stuff is funny, hot, and her heroines are all tough gals! I first discovered her in her G.A. Aiken pseudonym - 4 dragon shifter historical paranormals, also really funny and fun. Didn't think I would like her other books (not much of a shapeshifter fan), but I love them.

I am also a serious Butcher/Dresden fan girl. His books are great reads. Never saw the series. He has a short story anthology currently out - Small Favors -- and the next Dresden book is due out in April I think.

Another series I love and am panting after the next and last in the series is the "Fever" books by Karen Marie Moning. Darkfever, BloodFever, FaeFever, DreamFever and the upcoming one, ShadowFever. This is an incredibly good series, some of the best paranormal/romance/action/mystery I have read. Moning also writes some other stuff but it tends to blend together in my head. This series is an original, with a seriously hot, magical bad boy, Jericho Barrons and Mackayla Lane, a heroine who gets stronger through each book.

I just finished JR Ward's Lover Mine and was underwhelmed. WTF is happening to that series anyway? I loved the earlier books but getting through this one and the previous was a slog and a half. And I think Xhex had a brain transplant or something, she is so different!

This is my all time FAVORITE series!!!! I've read all 19 books (twice) and both novellas. I'm waiting on book 20 to hit the stores this fall. The author has another series, Merry Gentry that is awesome as well. There is ZERO overlap with the two series (which I love) and the focuse is on the Fae. I was just reading the author's blog and she mentioned that she might be starting a third series!

Oh check out L A Bank's Vampire Huntress Legends series too. The series is complete with all 12 books out (the last should be in paperback by now). Think Anita Blake but with mostly black or other ethnic minorities.

Please tell me there is going to be a sequal?!?!? He can't just leave it hanging like this. I literally could not put this book down.

Love the Dresden Files and I just started JR Ward's series. Oddly enough, the only romance stuff I'll read is paranormal romance. Everything else just makes me roll my eyes profusely. Seems like we have similar taste SBB so I'm going to have to check out Karen Marie Moning's series too now.

Kindred by Octavia Butler.

When I was 16 my dad had to actually threaten to take my book away for me to get me to come down and eat dinner.
