What I'm Reading...

Hi, my name is Alannah and I'm a reading addict. No, really, it's true. I was sick on Tuesday and wasn't able to get to Barnes and Noble for the new JR Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood book, Lover Avenged. But I was there at 10:10 (they open at 10:00) on Wednesday morning.

I haven't been able to put the book down!

Hubby called me today and said he was ready for lunch. When I got there I called him to tell him I was in the back waiting. Surprise! He'd had something come up and I ended up waiting one hour and forty-five minutes.


Do you know how much reading I got done in that length of time? Then I came home and decided I had to fast-track the rest of the book or I wouldn't get anything done until I'd finished.

I did some speed-reading through to the end and now I know the basics of everything that happens. Now I can relax, read when I have some spare time and get back to my own writing.

I wasn't as excited about this book as I have been some of the others. Rehvenge wasn't my favorite character and I when I saw that the book was available in hardback instead of paperback, I almost didn't get it. I'm so glad I did.

It's amazing to me how she can take a character you wouldn't think could possibly be a hero, and turn him into one. For all Black Dagger Brotherhood fans, it's another definite must read!

Here's the cover and info from her website:

Caldwell, NY, has long been the battleground for the battleground for the vampires and their enemies, the Lessening Society. It’s also where Rehvenge has staked out his turf as a drug lord and notorious nightclub that caters to the rich and heavily armed. His shadowy reputation is exactly why he’s approached to kill Wrath, the Blind King, and leader of the Brotherhood. Rehvenge has always kept his distance from the Brotherhood, even though his sister is married to a member. Because he’s a sympath, his identity is a deadly secret- the revelation of which will result in his banishment to a colony for sociopaths. And as plots within and outside the Brotherhood take their toll against Rehvenge, he turns to the only source of light in a darkening world- Elhena, a vampire untouched by the corruption that has its hold on him- and the only thing standing between him and eternal destruction.

I hope it's a fantastic weekend for everyone!!
Peace and Love,

I have almost 100 pages to read to finish up Lover Avenged. I was really disappointed in the last BDB book, so I wasn't too excited that this one was in hardback. However, I'm loving it and can't wait to get home so I can finish reading it tonight.

Bonus, I'm going to JR's book signing next Saturday in KY. She is so funny, and I can't wait to hear about future BDB books and her new series that comes out later this year.

OMG! Liza, you've gotten me beat! LOL You must have gotten the book on Tuesday.

Please let me know about the booksigning. What a treat that would be! And please, please, please find out if John Mathew's book is going to be next. LOL I feel like it will be, based on some of the things in this book, and I really, really hope it is.

Have a great weekend and enjoy the last 100 pages!

John Matthew's book is going to be next. I saw it on the BDB boards(yahoo group for BDB), but it doesn't come out until next year. I'll let you know if I find out any other information.
