I'm starting on Wild Ones by M. Leighton this week.  Avoiding Commitment is next on my list, I've heard great things about this book.

I'm kinda grinning about some scenes. It's good. I'm about 15% done with it. :)

My favorite thread!  :P

Im currently reading Abraham Lincoln: The Vampire Hunter (I know I've said this like three times for the last three months) But now I'm actually halfway through it and will be done maybe tomorrow. Its quite interesting.

Still reading: Piano Tuner
Going to read: The Miko by Eric Van Luster - The sequel of The Ninja
Wrath to Butch: That's you. You shall be called the Black Dagger warrior Dhestroyer....
Rhage: But you'll always be Butch to us, as well as hard-ass. Smart-ass. Royal pain in the ass... I think as long as there's an ASS in there, it'll be accurate.
Zhadist: How about bASStard?

^LOL :P

Not yet. :P I'm looking through Fullybooked site so I'm not reading it yet again. Well, I don't think Jack and Lexi would be together by the end of the book1. I made a mistake of reading the blurb of the second book. :(

I shouldn't read that one cause it just made me more furious. LOL! And it keeps me wondering who'll she end up with. Since there's a lot of build up with Jack.

Yep! I just noticed it myself 4hours ago. :P

Since I have not been upto much this month, I have managed to finish When the eagle hunts by Simon Scarrow, book 3 of the The Eagle series.  I am currently reading Scion by Murray McDonald.

I am very impressed with the first three books in the the eagle series.  Well written and exciting, with a bit of humour thrown in.  The books mainly cover the Roman invasion of Britian, and focus mainly on a centurion named Macro and his optio, Cato. 

Scion, is an excellent read so far, finding it hard to put down.  A lot of people get killed on in this book....and I dont mean in one big explosion.  People are targeted specifically, just as a character is introduced, chances are that they will be killed of in a few pages time.
