Three - The Perfect Number

I really like to read trilogies. When I find a story I can fall into I want it to last longer than just one book, but my attention span pretty much stops after three.  For me three books is just the right amount of time to spend with the story, and then I am ready for something new to captivate me.  I prefer to find the stories when they are already complete.  If I have to wait for the next one to be published it drives me crazy.  Here are some of my favorite trilogies that are complete and ready for your reading pleasure:

Nora Roberts is the queen of trilogies

Maya Banks Does It Again!

I love Maya Banks’ books and I was lucky enough to get a sneak peak at her newest in The Montgomery’s and Armstrong’s series, Highlander Most Wanted, and it did not disappoint.

Making My List And Checking It Twice

Every year I love to watch the same holiday movies over and over again.  It is fun to revisit because they feel like old friends.  I don't do this with holiday romance novels.  I wonder why.  This year I am going to.  I have already made my list and I have checked it twice.  Any other good ones that I have missed?

Don't Judge a Book By Its Cover? Oh Come On!

I don’t know about you but I really don’t get the cover art for most romance books.  Have you ever found yourself hiding the cover?  Bending it over so no one can see it?  I’ve read many books were there was more happening on the cover then in the pages.   But….. maybe that’s just me.   I really like some of the new covers I have been seeing.  What do you think?   Do you prefer something a little more demure like me or something spicy?

A Little Romance, A Little Mystery, A Little Suspense

I just love romantic suspense novels.  How about you?  Does a good romance with some mystery, intrigue or suspense all woven together sound good?   You can find all different kinds to suit your mood.  These stories tend to be more plot-driven instead of character-driven.  By the end of the story the mystery has been solved and the relationship is solid, all wrapped up nice and neat.  Some of my favorite authors are Linda Howard, Karen Robards,

Self-published to Published!

I have been reading a lot of self-published books lately.  They are on the New York Times Best Sellers list quite often.  Three of my current favorites have been picked up by publishers and now you can check them out from the library.  I love, love, love Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire!   I can’t wait for Walking Disaster to come out.  It is really going to be tough waiting until next April!  Sylvia Day’s Bared to You is pretty specta

The Holidays Are Coming

Well we just celebrated Labor Day and for me this signals the start of the holiday seasons. In a few weeks fall will begin, hopefully the weather will cool off a little, then we will roll right into Halloween.  I was shopping this weekend and the stores are already full of Halloween decorations!  This is also the time I start looking for those  books that center around a holiday.  Here are a few you can check out.
