About me~ I am Debbie, I am an avid romance reader and obsessive about writing reviews of those books I read. ~

About my libraryI have tons of books in my home, mostly fiction, romance and historical. I have yet to log them all in one place. I am working on it.
I am open to trades and to sending books out to people (US preferred). The majority of my books I do own, some are library books that I have just read and others are either on or on (I am onyx95 on almost every site I am a part of) so some will be unavailable. All you gotta do is ask.

Goal for 2014 is 50 books - WISH ME LUCK :)(working full-time)
Goal for 2013 is 50 books - read 25 books. (working full-time)
Goal for 2012 was 125 books - read 28 books. (working full-time)
Goal for 2011 was 150 books - read 101 books. (working part-time)
Goal for 2010 was 125 books - read 156 books.
Goal for 2009 was 100 books - read 127 books.
Goal for 2008 was 50 books - read 110 books.

Yes, Neil Gaiman is very creative. I recently purchased the Anansi Boys book. I don't know if I will read it this month. I hope to read it this year though. Should I read American Gods before or after Anansi Boys?
I am waiting for Without a Trace to arrive from a Bookmooch request. Hope it comes soon. I actually liked Skin Deep the least of the series so far -- figured out who the bad guy was very early on!
Hey, didn't want you to think you made a bad choice by asking me to read "Message in a Bottle". It's on my list 'cause I wanted to give it another chance. There's lots of people who like Nicholas Sparks, so if you haven't read him, you might want to give him a try anyway!
I figure that the links pages will make it go oh so much faster! But I'll just keep plugging along at the wiki when I have time. Thanks!
I've been working on the review pages - I moved everything to a general wiki page so that if other users want to add pages they can. The main page is Go Review That Book!. There's links to all the pages and an updated page that lists books that are still waiting to be reviewed. I also made a master list of all the members who had given permission to have their reviews re-posted. If you think this works, then maybe the next step would be to have InigoMontoya edit the group page so that this new link is there. Let me know what you think.
The posting part is kind of a pain! The worst is going back and editing stuff. But your link posts should make it a lot easier to get the info.
I saw that you are working on the Wiki for "Go Review that Book!" I'll try and pitch in too. I added a few to the most recent Wiki but realized that there are probably quite a few people who haven't given permission to re-post their reviews. I'm going to start a thread about that and maybe just post links until permission is given. What do you think?
I'm enjoying the Firefly book a lot. It is a series companion as opposed to a novelization. It has some of the episode scripts you can read along with character information which the actors had a lot of input into and other bits of trivia about the show. Lots of pictures too. It's a lot of fun!

It looks like you might make your goal. 25 left and 2 1/2 months, "you can do it!" (I'm thinking that in the funny accent from "The Waterboy" LOL!)
Thanks! Things have calmed down enough so that reading more is possible again. Everything is very different now but the boys and I seem to be muddling through. You seem to be making good book progress too and closing in on your goal!
Thanks for the comment. I too am loving the group. I am so glad I decided to join because I am actually reading books I keep putting off to read.
Yes, it was nice thanks. My grandmother passed away last week which made it melancholy for the family, but she was well remembered over the holiday. I hope yours was good as well. I did get "Hush, Hush" which I am very happy about, along with a bunch of other books. Of course, this means I've now got even more TBR books, but it is something I can certainly live with! Did you get any books for the holiday?
I liked your review of "Hush, Hush" :-) This is one of the books on my Christmas list and I'm really hoping the hubby picks it up for me!
The best ebooks publisher out there for this genre are MLR Press, Samhain Publishing, Loose Id, Dreamspinner Press, Torquere Books... You can easily find all the ebooks at 1 Romance Ebooks or All Romance Ebooks, they are both online booksellers that work fine. As for the authors, for a newbie, start with Laura Baumbach or J.L. Langley. They are for sure the more famous. Elisa
Thank You
I have enjoyed browsing your library and have started reading some new authors from your list.
I was surprised that it came from the library to me as fast as it did :-) The day I saw it was out in the bookstores I went and put a hold on it. I really liked this one. Razvan is a much different hero than most of them. I think you'll enjoy it!

Piers Anthony helped me get through high school although I haven't read a book by him in the last couple years. My son appropriated all my Xanth books to read when he got into high school as well which was kind of neat. I'm working my way through his autobiography now. His way of thinking is a bit startling to me, but it is interesting nonetheless.
heh- one can't help but ramble when it's such a great book to talk about! Glad you enjoyed the review! :D
I wanted to let you know that I mooched "Awakening" from the author based on your review. I looks so good, right up my alley! I can't wait to read it.
I read your review of "Dark Hunger" and can really identify with what you mean. I read the manga version of the "Avalon High" sequel by Meg Cabot and felt much the same way.

If you ever want to give manga another go I really find the Japanese artwork to be much more appealing than the American artwork I've seen so far. I'm not sure exactly what it is but the Japanese illustrations seem to be much softer in feel and aren't so overwhelming. It is also kind of an adventure reading it because the books are read in the opposite direction. If you ever want to give manga another shot and since I know we generally like the same kind of stuff I'd suggest the one I started with, "Her Majesty's Dog". It is a really fun, romantic, paranormal based one and may be one you can get through your library if you're interested.
I was just tooling around my library looking up people who share some of my favorites in their library. I saw that you had also reviewed "Can I Get There By Candlelight," but what really struck me was this: Yours is the only other profile I've come across with a picture of a kitty instead of a person. She's adorable. :-)

Thanks for accepting a fellow ravelrier - I'm having fun finding others with a number of "books you share"
Onyx, hi: I thought I'd come over and return the visit :-)
I love HH too and I've been collecting them for years!! It took me a while to get started reading Paranormal - but once I did, I haven't looked back. It's kind of fun reading all genres of romance, though I have to say I think the Western is my most favourite. Thank goodness there are a lot of them in the HH line.
And being a cat lover - I love your picture too *g*.
Really cute kitty! :)
