    I just read Bared to you and Entwined to you which is the 1st and 3rd of the trilogy earlier this week. Read it based on the fact that it was compared to Fifty shades. They have definitely better writing than Fifty but tame in the sexual content department. Well....to me it was lol.
    In the past two months I've read all 15 books of the Blacktop series by Lorelei James. A modern western trashy romance novel that cured my fifty shades itch. Her writing could use work though but it improves with each book. Her Wound and Unwound which has a martial arts kick to it is of the same nature; they are another good timekilling read.

    Finished reading Slash - his autobiography. All I got from it is that Axl is a nutcase and Slash is lucky to be alive.

    Currently reading The Phantom of Fifth Avenue by Meryl Gordon (about the famous late heiress Huguette Clark) and Country music broke my brain by Gerry House. Just started both today and already one was eye-raising while the other had me laughing.

    Between life and all the other books I've been reading, I'm only in the first couple chapters yet it's interesting.
    In the first few pages, the family tree and who's who in the book is laid out and that in itself is eye-raising. The book starts with the current family getting together for the first time and suddenly family members jump on the bandwagon to learn about and meet the elusive "Aunt Huguette" who, for reasons of her own, keeps away from them. I'll try my best to finish to give a full review. It usually takes me a full day to go through a novel from start to finish.

    "Fallen" by Ann Simko. This was her debut novel and an awesome thriller that hooks at the first sentence. It's a page turner and never stops. The characters are well developed, including the bad guy The General. For me, the twist was The General's goal was plausible but not ethical. Mrs. Simko does an incredible job of making the reader love them. The plot was riveting and the ending was one of the best I've ever read. In fact it made me cry, because Michael Ricco didn't deserve his fate, but he found peace and friends who love him even though he is an anomaly.

    I picked it up today because of your post. Love him. Looking forward to this.

    I also nabbed the new Christopher Moore- The Serpent of Venice, and The Lost Art of Dress, non fiction book on clothing in the 20th century.

    Swamplandia!, by Karen Russell.

    A book about a family who owns a gator theme park in the swampy everglades in florida. i'm about halfway through and so far it's great. it's spooky, it's funny, it's grotesque and quite touching. i guess you could call it a coming of age story and i didn't think i'd be interested in gators or swamps or theme parks but it's really quite wonderful so far and the writing is superb (swamplandia! was a finalist for the pulitzer prize).

    i think our florida members would love this.

    Opened a random box in the spare room and found all of my old Christopher Moore books - will go back and read Lamb/ A dirty Job/ you suck etc, but first up on the chopping block is the one I picked up purely on name and then forgot to read: Island of the Sequinned Love Nun.
