**ahhhitsshannyn**

I stepped out to lunch right after I posted in the Book Club thread it took off while I was gone, so... I was so excited to find someone else who reads that genre. I know pretty much no one who does, and it's why I'm wary of book clubs.

I particularly love Rachel Vincent's Shifters series, and Kim Harrison's The Hollows series.  What else have you liked in that same vein?

    Have you read Weather Wardens? I'm nuts about that series!

    I have not read much it seems like, I am always looking for more stuff for me to read. I have read the Sookie Stackhouse books, Twilight, HP, Mercy, City of Bones... I am trying to think of more stuff. I used to just go to the library to the tween section and choose things, since usually anything with vampires, magic, or werewolves are considered childish. I also have the Percy Jackson series on my kindle, my friend who reads a lot of the same books as me really liked them. I also really want to read the Vampire Diaries. I am up for any recommendations I am always looking for something new to read! :) Thanks for helping me! :)

    Highly suggest Harrison and Vincent. 

    I've been trying to decide if I want to read the Sookie books; I watch the show, and I know there different, but there's part of me that would rather read something new than something I already at least know the storyline and direction for, you know?

    Ghoti, I just looked that up.  The first review compares it to the Dresden files, which is on my amazon wish list.  I will add this!

    The sookie books are REALLY good if you give yourself some time in between. I read them all in like, a week and found her writing style REALLY repetitive. But if there's time in between it's probably not noticeable LOL.

    Ooh I'll have to add the Dresden files!

    Shan I love the percy jackson books! He just came out with the 1st in a new series that was really good too!

    I also really liked the Vampire Diaries :D

    Have you read Enders Game? I thought most of those books were pretty good.

    Funny you guys brought up Percy Jackson, because a good friend of mine I just made join GoodReads has them on her list, and I was just looking at them.

    HLQ- The Sookie books are COMPLETELY different from the show. Like, COMPLETELY. You probably would be shocked to see how different the story goes, so I think you would like the books. They would definitely be a surprise :)

    I JUST bought a Kindle.  Haven't used it much yet, because I got it yesterday and I'm trying to finish Wicked Lovely, which I have in trade paperback, but I like what I've used of it so far.

    I have a kindle too! Or will, tomorrow. I broke mine and the Amazon Kindle CS is sending me a replacement Free! They are seriously the best!

    I have most of the books mentioned above I can loan you, if you have somewhat questionable morals :)

    Can't you loan books on Kindle?

    Some you can. Most you can't. It's decided by the publisher, and they are only loanable once, for 2 weeks.

    I have not figured out the loaning thing yet. But my FIL has very questionable morals and when he heard I got a kindle he downloaded something like 700 books and gave them to me on a cd. A lot of them I think are the free ones, but there are also a lot of good ones on there. I have not even had a chance to plow through them. I guess that makes me a terrible person but I do also buy books as well. :)
