I've read her Study series but haven't read her Glass series yet. For some reason I'm a bit hesitant to start it. I just downloaded it though so I think I'll give it a go.

Thanks for the reccomendation!
If you like books with magic and fantasy setting, you might want to read Trudi Canavan's Age of five and Black Magician series. They should be uploaded here somewhere, in case you can't find them, let me know.

I just looked up both series on Goodreads and am now very excited because I have two new series to read! The Black Magician series seems a bit more interesting so I'll start with that one first.

I like BM more too, lol. Not that the other is bad, just different.
She's writing another trilogy which is a continuance of BM, and I'm waiting for the third book to be released so I can read them all at once. :P

I just finished Catching Jordan. Totally loved it!
At first the book was all over the place. Too many names and i got confused
and evrry time football was mentioned i got confused cause for me football is soccer and blah
but other than that i really really loved it

I read Maria V. Snyder's Study series long ago and loved the characters, especially Valek! And I recently finished Touch of Power, which I also enjoyed very much. So now, I'm going back to read her  Glass series (Storm Glass, Sea Glass, and Spy Glass).

Edit: It seems other people than myself also also reading Maria V. Snyder books this month. Does anyone know if the Inside Out / Outside In books are worth checking out?

Inside Out and Outside In are good. I wouldn't say they were as good as her other series but I still liked it. I say give it a go cause Maria's writing is fantastic!

I just started reading Lover Mine Book 8 in Black Dagger Brotherhood by JR Ward. I love the multiple POV's in every book. Hopefully I'll be done of Book 9 by the time Book 10 Lover Reborn comes out in late March.

I'm also planning to squeeze in reading The Fifty Shades Trilogy by E.L James. Though I've read the fanfic version I refuse to read the published version until I got all 3 books.
Because it would be a sad world without books!!!

but i'm not in what order they go,since one of them is the sequel to the other, anyone care to help? Thanks!

I loved My Blood Approves and Trylle Trilogy.
Same here... A little sad though about the fact the fifth book in the MBA series hasn't any official release date...):
I am currently reading Satan's Stone by H.M Ward in the Demon Kissed Series.. Just finished with the Wake Trilogy by Lisa McMann - Loved 'em... Squeezed in the Dark Secrets Series by Elizabeth Chandler Too...  :P
After I am done with Satan's Stone will prolly read the Luxe Series- still haven't gotten round to reading it...  ::)

I finished up the White Flag of the Dead series with book #4 United States of the Dead by Joseph Talluto. I also finished Rature by Phillip W. Simpson and Legend by Marie Lu. Both books were fantastic.

I also read a couple other dystopians, Ruin & The Two Brothers by N.M. Martinez. Ruin is the first in the Ruin series and The Two Brothers is same story but told from a different characters point of view. I really enjoyed them.

Now I just have to decide what to read next!

I have been re-reading old favorites and was pleasantly surprised to find books by one of my favorite authors now available on Amazon.  R.A. Macavoy wrote award winning fantasy novels - her first was 'Tea with the Black Dragon'.  My favorite and the one I just re-read is 'The Grey Horse', a story about a puka in Ireland (a spirit who can take the form of a man or a horse).  Very wonderful.  I did not remember it being such a good love story, but it is.

I have to agree.  Entangled was quite bad-and I really wanted to like it!

I'm working on The Space Between by Brenna Yovanoff & Earth Abides by George R. Stewart.

So far so good, I'm enjoying both. :)
