Oh hi there! I haven't updated sine the 11th because I've been a slave to the Kindle again. I'm pretty sure it's made of crack.
Since the middle of April I've read around 40 books. FORTY EFFING BOOKS! I'm hooked. It's kind of sad. I read until I'm sleepy and cranky and have to be up in 6 hrs, and then wake up, hear the dude in the shower, roll over and grab the Kindle.
I'm a real winner.
Nothing I'm reading is actually brain food, just a bunch of slutty vampire/supernatural stories.
Just in case anyboddeh is wonderin'...
BOOKS SERIES CAUGHT UP ON! (just waiting on new releases now):
Night Huntress series by Jeaniene Frost (the evil lady who got me hooked to slutty vampire books, or "paranormal romance" but that sounds icky, so slutty it is!) Main chickie Cat is half Vampire and she's pretty ass-kicking fantastic. There are currently 2 spin off books from the series but I don't think they are meant to be their own series. Just a 1 book kind of dealio.
The Hollows series by Kim Harrison (Witches, Vampires, Pixies <3!) Main character is Rachel Morgan, a witch detective who works with a Vampire lady Ivy- who I'm crazy in <3 with and I don't even swing that way - and a pixie dude Jenx. I read these right after reading the Hunger Games when I thought all books were now ruined because I loved those 3 so much, but NOPE! The Hollows series got me addicted so I googled more supernatural series and founnnnnnd>>
Black Dagger Brotherhood by J.R. Ward (it took me longer to get into the storyline but then I got hooked. CHEEEEEESE but in a hilarious way that kept me reading) A bunch of hugemongous Vampires fighting off lessers while hookin up with ze ladies. My favourite character is Qhuinn. 2 coloured eyes, dark hair, pierced and sluttastic. WIN!
Lords of the Underworld by Gena Showalter. Not vampire-centric but ancient Greek warriors possesed by demons like Disease and Defeat. There are also Angels, Harpies, Gods and Goddesses of course. My favourite characters are Anya (Minor goddess of Anarchy) and Strider keeper of Defeat (who can't lose a challenge without crazy pain, who knows he's made of awesome, and I'm pretty awesome so in fantasy book land WE'D be pretty made of awesome TOOOOGEDDER :) hahaha nerd. I can't wait until his book gets released. You can get the 1st 4 books in a bundle for dirt cheap here
Fallen Angels series by J.R. Ward. So far there are only 2 stories. I pre-ordered the 3rd but didn't realize it wasn't to be released until September still. SO FAR AWAY! I didn't like these as much as the BDB series so far but now that I read the 1st 2, I have to keep going.
Out of all of those the Hollows series is my favourite. I like all the different types of creatures in it.
Next up I think I'm going to tackle the Immortals After Dark series by Kresley Cole. I found that series when I bought the Lords of the Underworld companion guide thingy. There's a Q&A with the authors in it. Orrrr maybe read Gena's Atlantis series.
Anyone else read paranormal *gag* romance *gag* novels and can suggest something? Nothing very werewolfy though. I don't find hairy dogmen hawt and can't get past the whole "OH HEY I'M AN ANIMAL SOMETIMES, BEASTIALITY? OKAY!". The only reason I tolerate the Sookie Stackhouse books is because of Eric. nom nom vampire viking nom.
If anyone read this non-makeup-topic-post long enough, I will post a bunch of EOTD's I did in 1 mega post I think. Nothing was super amazing that I wore but I'll post them in case somebody likes 'em :)
Time for the cropping bonanza.
And here's a picture to look at that I took in Victoria BC. That's a castle. BAD.ASS.
