I plan on reading the Iron Fey Series.  It seems a lot of members really liked the books so I am going to give them a try. 

Right now I am reading Destined by Jessie Harrell.  So far its a great take on the Cupid and Psyche mythology.

So I finished 'So Yesterday' by Scott Westerfeld and 'Mockingjay' by Suzanne Collins and gave both 4 stars on GR :)
Now I'm reading 'Red Riding Hood' by Sarah Blakley-Cartrwight, but I'm still on the first chapters ;)

Suike76 you are my hero!! btw- The Iron Fey series rocks but I would recommend NOT reading the 4th book (it really sucked- if you feel the need to know what happens, then read the first and last chapters and that's it. if you do decide to read the whole book don't say i didn't warn you.....)

Another good book is The Iron Witch by Karen Mahoney- i absolutely LOVED this book and feel it's not getting enough publicity so i'm going to make it my mission to 'upsell' it at every opportunity.

I just finished The Scorpio Races... I can't remember who recommended it (someone from the Nov thread) but THANK YOU! I loved the book. I had really liked Stiefvater's Lament but hated the rest of her books (Ballad, Mercy Falls series) so I was iffy about reading S.R., plus a lot of people said the romance in the book sucked- I beg to differ. I think it was a lot more romantic then people give it credit for. It was sweet.


I have no clue what to start next...think I'm going to try and hold out for Clockwork Prince because I am desperate to read it and don't think I'll be able to focus on much else until then ;)

Jessadia - I might have to try the Scorpio Races too.   I've also heard the romance was lacking in the book so I've swayed against reading it. 

Just finished reading obsidian.  I highly recommend to anyone who loves sci fi with a steaming romance.  Definitely a book I will read again.

That's the perfect description of the romance in all her books I think. Sweet. Her romance is very subtle. Which is always a nice change.

I finished The Eleventh Plague, and I'm still working my way through Zone One. I'm not sure how I'm feeling about this book yet. It's definately not an easy read. I'm also about halfway through Dark Inside and I'm really loving it.

I finished The Eleventh Plague. It was pretty good and I gave it a 4 out of 5 stars on Goodreads. I still haven't picked back up Zone One. Instead I read Dark Inside by Jeyn Roberts. I really enjoyed this book and the way the author devoted each chapter to an individual character. I just started Sudden Independents by Ted Hill.

I just finished For You by Kristen Ashley and it was really good too.  With each of her books I keep thinking that one is not going to be as good as the other.  That is not the case each was one has been awesome.  I am going to keep on with the rest of her books.

The Scorpio Races was def. a good read

I just finished Obsidian and I absolutely loved it- one of the best books of the year! I am having a hard time deciding what to start next so I think I'm gonna read Half-Blood by Armentrout then decide from there...

I'm just starting Honor's Paradox by P. C. Hodgell.  This is sixth in the series of the Kencyrath chronicaling the fantasy/adventures of Jaime. The series started a long time ago. It seems the author stopped for a while, but now she is back in full swing...If you like Kristen Britain's Green Rider series or Mercedes Lackey Arrows of the Queen, then you will love this series.
Enjoy!

I've added more to my reading list:

Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare
Anew by Chelsea Fine
Eternal Starling by Angela Corbett

Just finished Shattered Souls by Mary Lindsey.  I really enjoyed it and highly recommend it.  I'm glad its not part of triology.  Its nice to be able to read something once in a while that doesn't end in a cliffhanger.

Due to all the new reads that has come out thus far, I had to put the Iron Fey series in the back burner.

I just finished the Iron fey series and also did not enjoy the fourth book. I loved the rest though! I also came accross the book 'discovery of witches', i found it hard to sink my teeth into but in the end it was worth the read. I am now going to find me some kristen ashley books because everyone seems to think they are amazing so hopefully they are!!!!!   :D :D :D

I read It Started With a Kiss. I'm not a fan of those types of books at all but needed to read a holiday book for a book club. It was decent I guess...just not my thing.

I just finished a "tree on the cover" book for the book club, Mill River Recluse. It actually was better than I expected. I love books that share a message. This one was "freaking be nice to people!!" haha

I was thinking about starting Clockwork Angel. I think I tried reading it before and had a hard time getting into it...does it just take a while? I just didn't get how it was getting such high reviews.

Next on the list....I believe will be Obsidian.
