What I'm Reading

I'm in the middle of two Diva books right now and enjoying both of them. I'm so happy I finally got to pick up a few titles from the authors I know!

A few weeks back I picked up Immorati by MK Mancos. MK is one of my CPs and she writes red hot science fiction and thought provoking paranormals. This one has an X-Files flavor to it that makes it a compelling read AND it's set in New Jersey!

Not too many books are set in the Garden State because the people who live here generally don't like to admit they live here and the people who don't, don't really know anything about us.

MK builds on the Jersey Devil legend in this story and gives you a reason to wonder what really goes on in the Pine Barrens. Anyone who's ever driven all the way south on the Garden State Parkway will know what I'm talking about. And those of you who haven't, now you have a reason to make sure your car windows are rolled up nice and tight!

Because I'm a little bit hyper when it comes to reading, I'm also in the middle of Portia da Costa's Entertaining Mr. Stone. This one was in my TBR pile already believe it or not - and I didn't know I knew Portia through Romance Divas, so when I cleaned out the TBR and found it, I had to start reading it.

This one is erotica of a very different flavor for me. It's written in first person, present tense! I've never read a book written that way before. It was a bit startling at first, but it works. It has a Bridget Jones feel to it that's fun and entertaining. There's just something about erotica with a British accent. LOL.

So if you're looking for new flavors in your reading, I recommend Immorati and Entertaining Mr. Stone to spice up your TBR pile!

PS: I'm also over at Star-Crossed today with this week's Backlist Bonanza Book of the Week excerpt!

Wow, I'm so glad you're enjoying EMS! Thanks for posting about it... This was a real book of the heart type deal for me. Have you figured out who Mr Stone is modelled on yet?

Or maybe you already know... ;)

LOL, Portia, I have my theories.
