#35 "GG" All I want is everything by Cecily von Ziegesar

Yup. They're still easy to read and super quick. I still like them and I still have 2 more checked out from the library. I'm on a roll.

#34 "GG" You know you love me by Cecily von Ziegesar

Book 2 in the Gossip Girl series. I really like that these books are not very predictable. The characters although simple are realistic. I can't really figure out what's going on in their heads. Guess what book I'm reading next?

#33 Gossip Girl by Cecily von Ziegesar

Throw away books. Meaning I can read 2 in a day. I've been interested in reading these for a few years but never committed. I liked it.

#32 The Darkest Secret by Gena Showalter

More supernatural smut. I loved it. :) Gena Showalter is always good for unique characters and story lines even if it is predictable and over the top trash. This is book 8 (or something) in the "Lords of the Underworld" series. I'm not rushing to get the others...but I'm sure I would like them.

#31 When Beauty tamed the Beast by Eloisa James

As far as romance books go this one was good. It was, I think obviously, a retelling of Beauty and the Beast; with a nice little "House; MD" thrown in for fun. This is even Eloisa James' own description.

#30 Early to Death; Early to Rise by Kim Harrison

This is the 2nd book in this series and I really enjoyed it. It's very simple but entertaining. I just found out that the 3rd one should be released in the next few weeks. :)

#29 Goddess of Spring by PC Cast

Gaw. Everything I read has a horrid title. Okay. Not EVERYTHING.

I do love PC Cast and I did enjoy this book. It's a "Rework of Greek Mythology" that involves the Goddess of Spring, Persephone, who is torn between her mother, Demeter, and, Hades, the God of the Underworld. In this story Demeter tricks a mortal, Lina, into a favor and swaps Lina's soul with Persephone's soul. Lina, then, is sent to the Underworld to fulfill Persephone's scheduled time there. Hades doesn't know it's not actually the Goddess, of course, and he eventually falls in love with her. Yawdy yawdy yawda.
As far as mythology goes I learned more from the Percy Jackson Series but there was some fun stuff here, too. I'll read the other books in this "series". The forward said there is a Goddess Undine story (which I've read) An Apollo/Artemis story (where the twins are vacationing in Vegas) and a Beauty and the beast story. Fun!

#28 Jane by April Lindner

Another 1am book update. Another not-so review.
It's easiest to say that Jane is a modern remake of Jane Eyre. It was good. It wasn't great. Maybe I would have really enjoyed it if I hadn't loved Jane Eyre so much.

#27 My Way to Hell by Dakota Cassidy

I've read other books by Dakota Cassidy and enjoyed them so it was an easy choice to borrow this one from the library. They're "Paranormal Romance" books (you know I'm a sucker for 'em) and are usually pretty fun to follow along with. This one is a sequel and I realized too late that I had not, in fact, read the 1st one. It didn't matter. It's easy to pick up.
My Way(..) is about an ex demon turned ghost who is trying to deal with the most recent events in her life, including turning into a ghost, the brother of her best friend (who she saved from Lucifer himself) and an extremely private, torturous past. It's a lot of painful bantering. some blatant sex and even some emotional little moments in it. It wasn't an amazing story but it was easy to read and I was eager to finish it. It didn't take long at all to get through it, which is good considering the ones that take me a long time have generally not been able to keep my interest. I'll read more of Dakota Cassidy's books. :)

#26 Twilight by Stephenie Meyer

It's been 2 years since the last time I read Twilight. I recently tried to find all of my copies of the saga and was unable to find Twilight. It was enough to make me REALLY want to read it. So....I borrowed it from the public library.
Yeah. I know.
I do still love this book though. It might be the 7th time I've read this book but I'm pretty sure I'm safe when I say it's not the final time I'll read it. I make no apologies for this.
