Dance Chica Recommends:
Twilight by Stephenie Meyer - This book is a must!
Southern Vampire series by Charlaine Harris

Anita Blake: Vampire Hunter by Laurell K. Hamilton - Only books 1-9. Do NOT pass go! Or in this case, do not pass book 9! The books deteriorate into a pile of poop after book 9. You have been warned!
Undead series by MaryJanice Davidson – Books 1 and 2 were fun reads. After book 2, however, the series starts to lose stream.
J. R. Ward – Black Dagger Brotherhood series - Loved books 1 and 2. Found book 3 somewhat disappointing...

You know, most of these books, i haven't heard of LOL. But love love love THE MIST OF AVALON. Also K Armstrong's BITTEN!

Yay!! You're up and running!

I always say that I don't read a lot of fantasy but I have read quite a few of these!

Mists of Avalon is so great. I have Ancestors of Avalon unread, because I had to see a series come to an end. But, there is a new book coming out next year. Mind you, it is not actually by Bradley, just based on her, but I am still excited.

Hey, you guys read all the same books that I do, good for you!! I'm dying for the next installment of stephanie meyer after new moon. BTW, she has the first chapter of Midnight Sun up on her site...

About Me

My photo
Since I was a little girl I have been fascinated with books. Early photos show me with a book in hand, even if it was not exactly my reading level... My first word was a made-up word meaning 'book', actually. I suppose I had my priorities at an early age... Over the years my interest in books has become one of the defining features of who I am as a person. You can probably call me a bookworm. While I have other interests, reading will always be the one I talk about the most, even if I am not focusing on it as much as I used to.
