    I’m reading Reflected in You now, and I read Bared to You last week. I like the series, they are guilty pleasures for sure. And yeah, The Morganville series is up to 13 books now! But they are all short, fast reads, and lots of fun. Thanks for stopping by, Thuy!

      I think the You series may be better, though they are similar to Fifty Shades, so if you like one you’ll probably like the other.

    Love the cover on A Matter of Days- kind of mysterious and eerie looking. Have a great week and happy reading! <(")

    I have read Crash and loved it, hope you enjoy it. I have On Dublin Street but yet to get around to it. I really want to read The Raven Boys and Losing It. Great pile of books, Lucy. Thanks for stopping by my Stacking the Shelves post yesterday, too :)

    I really want to read the Raven Boys, it’s in transit for me at the library right now actually. :) Enjoy all of these can can’t wait to see what you think of them!

    Crash really caught my attention, I love books about ballet. And I love the cover for Uses For Boys. Enjoy all your books Lucy!

  7. Diana Leigh

    I’ve been hearing a lot about ON DUBLIN STREET lately, some good, some not so good. I’ll be interested to hear your thoughts!

  8. Amber Hughes

    You had a nice week. Attachments is on my reading list but most of the others are new titles for me.

    I really liked Maggie Stiefvater’s Scorpio Races, but I wasn’t a huge fan of the Shiver series so I wondered about the Raven Boys books. You’ll have to review it when you finish reading it and let us know what you think. As for Rachel Caine, I have such mixed feelings about her books. I started on the Morganville Series a long time ago, but I just couldn’t get into them. The reason escapes me now, but I know I just didn’t like something about them. I’ve read her adult series, the Georgia Kincaid succubus series and the Weather Warden series. The succubus books had some issues particularly the dynamics between the main love interests. I could never understand, other than for fate, why they insisted on being together when they seemed to make each other miserable most of the time. But I was still sucked into the books and looked forward to the next one each time.

      Thanks for the great feedback!
      I miss the Succubus series and am sad it’s over. I know what you mean about the love interest though- I thought there was potential romance with at least one of the other characters.
      The Morganville series is fun for me, and I’m curious to know what didn’t work for you. I haven’t tried out her Weather Warden series.
      I wonder if Raven Boys will be more like Scorpio Races or Shiver. It’s interesting that readers like one or the other.

      • squee1313

        I know exactly which other love interest you are talking about and I have to admit I was rooting for him the whole time. They seemed so much more compatible, but with him I guess there was no chance for Georgia to redeem herself.
        Maybe I’ll give Morganville another go. Maybe I tried reading too many of them back to back. I’ve found with most book series, its better to take a little break between each book.
