Recommend Monday

Good Monday All!

Hope everyone had a great weekend. Last week's comments were amazing, with lots of book recommendations. Would love to increase that even more this week, so come on and share your great reads!

Remember, by recommending a book here, you're entered into a contest for:

Grand Prize winner: Kindle Fire HD
First Prize winner: Signed copy of entire Last Chance Rescue series (9 books)
Second Prize winner: $25 gift card to either Amazon or Barnes & Noble

Winner will be announced December 31.

Thanks to all who commented about my Ella Grace site. Be sure to check out the Midnight Tale I posted on Friday. Faye's Diner is the oldest restaurant in Midnight and holds more secrets than most people would expect.

Also, thanks to those who commented here or sent an email about how you'd like to read CHANCES ARE novella, either eBook or paperback. Still don't know if I'll be able to offer it in paperback yet but I'll be sure to let everyone know as soon as I know.

I have tons going on this week and the deadline for Ella's MIDNIGHT LIES looms ever near, so please forgive the shortness of this post.

Looking forward to everyone recommendations!

Have a great week!

My book recommendation is for Already Freak'n Mated by Eve Langais. This is the 3rd book of the series, so want to read the first two before. The whole series is great.
I also like Elle Kennedy's Heat series. Their are 7 books in the series, they are great and you can read out of order, but I suggest to read in order.

Good morning, Christy!

Since I've been forced to take time off from work I've had lots of reading time. My students sent me home with a long list of their own book recommends, complete with directions for oral reports upon my return. But, in between Magic Tree House and Geronimo Stilton books, I've snuck in some very good adult books. :-) Last week I finished On Dublin Street, which, despite its first person POV, I found very enjoyable. I read, and loved, a nonfiction book titled The Glass Castle. And, I read Marie Force's newest Gansett Island book, Longing for Love, and did a rererereread of PC's Extreme Exposure. Two of my very favorite authors. Now, if I just had an Ella Grace book in my hand...

Hi everyone!

I read some great books last week. Sylvia Day's Reflected in You was amazing, an emotional roller coaster with lots of spice. Marie Force's Longing for Love was SO good, great to see Blaine and Tiffany get together. Yesterday I read Judith McNaught's Once and Always. I couldn't put it down, JM has put me through the wringer every time so far and I love it :)

Have a good week all!

Hey Christy!!!

I'm very much looking forward to your new books! <3

I just read Slammed and Point of Retreat by Colleen Hoover yesterday, which I highly recommend. I am just amazed by those two books. I haven't been this moved in a while. I loved them so much and they hold a special place in my heart now....but I hate this feeling I have! Too many emotions taking over me! I'll need to take a bread for a few days now so I can get my act together and read something else.

Have a great week!

CrystalGB said...

I am reading Shana Galen's When You Give A Duke a Diamond. It has been such a great read. :)

Na said...

My recommendation is The Wreck by Marie Force. I remember being hooked from the start.

I've lucked out lately because after a reading slump in the Summer I've found many I've enjoyed or look forward to.

Hey Christy,
Was on call over the weekend again so had some time to read. I finished Linda Fairstein Night Watch last week- it was okay but not quite up to the standards of her other books. Then I read Stella Cameron Risk- another classic of hers. And was luck enough to win an ARC of Roxanne St. Claire Barfoot in the Rain. This was the best one that I read over the weekend. It is the second in her contemporary romance series. I think this one was even better then the first and I loved the first book. It will be out later this month. And for my last recommend. Cherry Adair has a new TFLAC book coming out next Monday. It is a self published book so will not be available for pre-order. I am definitely looking forward to this one!

Tara said...

Happy Monday, All!
Long time no post, but I have been checking every Monday for your great suggestions.

Christy, love, love, love the Ella Grace site and can't wait to start reading her/your books!

I have read lots since last posting, but in the past few days I have read the second, Sweet Dreams and third, Lady Luck in the Mountain Man series by Kristen Ashley. I cannot recommend these books enough, I love this series! Her Mystery Man series was amazing also! I am so glad I have more of her books left to read! Is it just me or do others find themselves completely addicted to her books?

Have a wonderful week everyone!

Hi Christy,hi Everyone!

With all those great recommends coming I´ll seriously have to watch my reading budget. My TBR list is growing into the stratosphere.

Three recommends from me this week:
"Rev It Up" - Julie Ann Walker´s third book in her Black Knights series ( soo good) and "FEVER" and "BLAZE" by Joan Swan.
They are connected and should be read in the right order (I read the second book "Blaze" first and I am now reading the first book ) They are both unputdownable and I highly recommend both.

Good luck for Midnight Lies, Christy and happy reading everyone!

Jane said...

In preparation for Monica McCarty's upcoming release "The Recruit," I've been rereading the previous books in her Highland Guard series. I definitely recommend these books to all historical romance lovers.

KC said...

Just a few recommends for me:
Mate Claimed by Jennifer Ashley. Also did some re-reads of Jo Davis, her firefighter series, gotta love hot firemen. And Mr. Perfect by Linda Howard, my favorite of hers.

Christy- can't wait for the new series and Chances are.

Have a great Monday!

Feeling Hot by Elle Kennedy! And I am working on the rest of her hotties. :)

Crystal said...

Christy hope deadline comes and goes without to much extra stress. I've got two recommends (yay me!)
Maya Banks Never Seduce a Scot
Karen Hawkins oldie but goody The Seduction of Sarah.

Alison I'm so glad you liked Once and Always. JM is a pro at putting her readers through emotional turmoil.

Amber E. said...

Hi Christy and everyone! I just finished reading Marie Force's new release LONGING FOR LOVE, and highly recommend it. Love her Gansett Island series!

Alison would you or anyone else highly recommend Sylvia Day's new series(Bared To You and Reflected In You)? I have heard a lot of good buzz about it, but she is a new author to me?

krisgils33 said...

I haven't read much since I've been home and have only one recommend: Julie Ann Walker's third Black Knights book Rev It Up.

Alison said...

Amber E - You should definitely read Sylvia Day's Bared to You. Its a super emotional and erotic read.

Last week I read the first 3 books in the Scandalous Brides series, by Suzanne Enoch. Very, very good regency set historical romances.

Ronlyn said...

Hi All,
I've been MIA for longer than I realized (again), but I've been sucked into the Bluegrass series by Kathleen Brooks. Very light, fun, RS...which sounds a bit oxymoronic, but true.
I need to catch up with everyone...I'm so out of the loop.

Jennifer V. said...

I'm loving Whisper of Warning by Laura Griffin. In fact all of her books have been great so far!

Christy Reece said...

Hi Everyone! Fantastic recommends last week. I hope you found them helpful and added some to your TBR list. I know I did.

Be sure to come over for Recommend Monday today. See you soon!
