Cafe Chaos--Books

Thursday, September 17, 2009
Welcome to Café Chaos. Grab a cup of coffee or tea (we prefer coffee) and join us for a chat. Every Thursday we’ll offer recommendations for book lovers. Feel free to comment on our picks or to throw in a few of your own. We’re listening!

SIS Barb says: I recently picked up a book that I knew was mid series. I'd heard wonderful things about the author and the book was cut to such an incredible price, I just had to get it.
I thought about setting it aside until I bought the other books in the series but in the end I gave in and read it. It took me a few pages to get rooted but I really loved the authors style. She hooked me with the story line and the characters. So much so that I will get ALL the books in this series. I have no idea how many there are but I'm on a mission to find them.

My Pick of the Week: Dark Possession~A Carpathian Novel
from the inside cover: Manolito De La Cruz knew he was dangerously close to becoming a vampire. The last thing he expected after being called back to his Carpathian homeland by Prince Mikhail was to catch the scent of his destined lifemate in MaryAnn Delaney. MaryAnn is human but she knows all too well the overwhelmingly aggressive instinct of Carpathian males. And they're not exactly the kind of male she'd prefer to be bound to for life.

Author: Christine Feehan

SIS Beth says...
Are you sick of me recommending the books in the Sookie Stackhouse series? You are. Go ahead. Say it. But I can't help it! I'm hooked!

This week's pick: Club Dead
Just when I thought things couldn't heat up for Sookie (sexually) or get more paranormally (is that a word?)--they do. Now a sexy werewolf is in the mix. I can't believe I just typed 'sexy' and 'werewolf' in the same sentence. Jeesh. I'm only half way through this book (the third in the series) and I can't wait to see how the plot thickens and shakes out. All I can say is... I want to be Sookie.

Author: Charlaine Harris

Barb - Sounds like a pretty intense vampire novel. Does it have any thrills or chills to it?

Beth - I'm currently halfway through season 2 of True Blood and it's realllly good, but I wonder if it's still following the books. Is Jessica in the novels?

Tori Lennox said...

Beth, as I've said before I love the Sookie Stackhouse series (and some day I hope to see True Blood). :)

The Carpathian book sounds interesting, Barb!

Taylor, I'm so envious! I'm still waiting to see season 1!! Um, Jessica? I'm not sure. Is she a human or something else?

Hey Tori, what can I say? Sookie rocks!

I'd love to make a comment, but you know... it's book day!!

It's not quite vampire and to be honest, I'm still figuring out exactly what a Carpathian is. That's why I should have started with book 1. And...I'd say more thrills than chills.

Tori and Beth,

Looks like I need to jump on the Sookie bandwagon!
