What are you looking forward to reading? What else should be on my list?

  1. Hi L.J.,

    One book that won’t let you down if you’re looking for a thrilling read is Iris Johansen’s, “CHASING THE NIGHT.” I won this book & believe me it is suspenseful with a mind blowing ending that will leave you wanting for more! 😉 Also BURIED TREASURES, by Joseph Finder is an incredibly suspenseful read. I won that one too. If you like vampire books, THE HOUSE OF NIGHT, by P.C. Cast is an exciting read. I loved this series so much that in one month I read the whole series! I usually wait for the PB’s to come out on a series that I enjoy but I just couldn’t wait for the next book to come out in this series!
    Well, keep up the good work. I know I’m just adding to your list of TBR pile. Sorry about that! 🙁 Hehehe!! That’s how mine is also! Take care.

    Ciao For Now,

  2. They all sound terrific. I’ll start with Chasing the Night. Thanks!

  3. LOVE anything by Robert Crais!! Could not put down The Help.

  4. My recommendations include: Leighton Gage (I’ve just read BURIED STRANGERS and EVERY BITTER THING), C. J. West (I’ve read THE END OF MARKING TIME), Scott Nicholson (I’ve read DRUMMER BOY and THE SKULL RING), Simon Wood (I’ve read TERMINATED, THE SCRUBS, WORKING STIFFS and ASKING FOR TROUBLE), W.D. Gagliani (currently reading SAVAGE NIGHTS), and Jessica Dee Rohm (I’ve read SUGAR TOWER).

    They’re all great authors. Pick any book. 🙂

  5. Oops! I forgot to mention CRASHED by Timothy Hallinan.
