The Book Chat - Catching Up!


The book chat has been missing for a while because Jessica from The Tangerine has been without REAL internet since about April. Can you believe that? Me either. That's just inhumane... However now she has a reliable internet connection and the chat is back!

I haven't really been reading a lot this summer. I'm having a hard time finding books that I love and actually want to review.

I DID fall in love with these three books. Lucky for me they are all the first book in either a trilogy or series!

I have Jessica (The Tangerine) and Brighton (Dear Brighton) to thank for introducing me to the world of the Black Daggar Brotherhood. Dark Lover by J.R. Ward is the first book and it was GREAT! Thankfully the next several books are already out so I won't have to wait for a release date to sink my teeth (ha ha ha) into the next one. 

I finished reading What's Left of me by Khat Zang in June. You can read my review here. The second book wont be released until September.

I started reading Birthmarked by Caragh M. O'Brien on Tuesday. I finished it yesterday. It was THAT good. I did not put this book down! I highly recommend you go read now. I didn't realize until I was almost finished with it that it was the first book in a trilogy. That made me extremely happy. 

Today I will start to read Almost Moon by Alice Sebold author of The Lovely Bones. I don't really know what I'm expecting from the book. The Lovely Bones was such a haunting book. The first line of The Almost Moon is, "When all is said and done, killing my mother came easily." So...ya...we'll see where this story takes me.

Welcome back book chat!!!!


  1. I am interested to hear about The Almost Moon! The Lovely Bones really haunted me.

  2. Haha, yes! We knew you would love the Black Dagger Brotherhood. I can't wait until you can read book 3 which is Zsadist's story. He's my absolute favorite. I smile everytime he and Bella pop up in the books.

    Good luck on reading Alice Seabold. I was freaked out by The Lovely Bones for a long time and that opening line sounds like a doozy.

    Happy Book Chat Day!

  3. I haven't read any of these but I love the front cover of 'Birth Marked' (and as such will have to go on my reading list!, so excited Book Chat is back!

  4. Yes on Birthmarked!! These books flew under the radar. A YouTube reviewer raved about this book so I picked it up and I was so hooked. The second in the series is much different than the first and even though the third has been out for a while now, I haven't picked it up. I hate waiting for books because I lose interest and motivation. :(

  5. I love anything by Alice Sebold, so I'll definitely have to check out The Almost Moon. But I agree with you, I absolutely love reading trilogies/series because once I invest in a story and characters, I love being able to see more of their story play out!! :)

  6. Another great round of books, Whats left of me looks like an interesting read. Not since I was a kid have I managed to read a whole book in a week, I wish I had the time to read more. TV is too much of a distraction I think :)

  7. Love Alice Sebold. Interested to know what you think about this one!

  8. That's quite the opening line - looking forward to seeing what you think of it!
