Synopsis:

Qhuinn, son of no one, is used to being on his own. Disavowed from his bloodline, shunned by the aristocracy, he has finally found an identity as one of the most brutal fighters in the war against the Lessening Society. But his life is not complete. Even as the prospect of having a family of his own seems to be within reach, he is empty on the inside, his heart given to another….

Blay, after years of unrequited love, has moved on from his feelings for Qhuinn. And it’s about time: The male has found his perfect match in a Chosen female, and they are going to have a young—just as Qhuinn has always wanted for himself. It’s hard to see the new couple together, but building your life around a pipe dream is just a heartbreak waiting to happen. As he’s learned firsthand.

Fate seems to have taken these vampire soldiers in different directions… but as the battle over the race’s throne intensifies, and new players on the scene in Caldwell create mortal danger for the Brotherhood, Qhuinn finally learns the true definition of courage, and two hearts who are meant to be together… finally become one.

Ten Authors I’ve Read The Most Books From 08/11/15

Ten Authors I’ve Read The Most Books From

I’ve decided to take the “Top” out of the title so now it’s only “Ten Authors”. I wanted to include some authors I stopped reading as well. So here we go.

#1: Cynthia Eden: 39 books(!!!!)

Wow, I’ve just counted them and I’ve really read so many books by her. Oo I’m kind of shocked right now and I haven’t even read all her series completely. I’m still missing like 12-15 books.

By the way I wrote a lot of reviews for her books in the time I’ve been blogging. If you are interested in reading one of those, just typ Cynthia Eden into the search bar.

#2: Nalini Singh: 24 books

I only counted her full novels, no novellas 😉 the number would be a lot higher then. I really like Miss Singh’s paranormal series, but I’m not really a fan of her contemporary series. I’ve read the first one of it and I think I dnf-ed it :(. In Germany we have this saying: Schuster bleib bei deinen Leisten. In english it is something like this “A cobble should stick to his last.” I really think she should stick to the paranormal romance genre.

#3: Jennifer L. Armentrout (16) / J.Lynn (4): 20 books

Can you believe I’ve almost forgotten her on my list! Bad me! Bad, bad me! I love her Lux, Covenant and Dark Elements series and please don’t make me pick between one of them. Her New Adult stuff that she writes under her pseudonym are nice as well.

#4: Jeaniene Frost: 12 books

So sad her Night Huntress series is over, but I’m eagerly awaiting her last Night Prince book. Also I’ve read somewhere that Ian will finally get his own book/spin-off(?). YAY!

#5: Ilona Andrews: 11 books

I’m massive behind on her Kate Daniels series! I apologize. I’m working on it 😉 I loved Burn For Me and I still need to read the last book in the The Edge series.

#6: Lara Adrian: 11 books

I liked her Midnight Breed series up to the point where she started writing her second story arc. After that I quit.

#7: Rhyannon Byrd: 11 books

I really like her Bloodrunner series and I’ve read some of her Primal Instinct books.

#8: JR Ward: 10 books

I actually stopped reading her books a while back, because I wasn’t invested in them anyone.

#9: Rachel Vincent: 9 books

I loved her Soul Screamer series, read the first of her Unbound series (which wasn’t for me) and I kind of liked The Stars Never Rise.

#10: Jennifer Estep: 8 books

I read a good part of her Elemental Assassins series, but I binged on them and that was a mistake, since they are really repetitive. So I stopped. I’m currently in the slow process of listening to her Mythos Academy series and I still need to read Cold Burn Of Magic :/

Book Haul #6 (March 2015)

I got this idea from Freya of Sound Of A Voice and she allowed me to steal it 🙂


Bought Books:

Ally Carter: I’d Tell You I Love You, But Then I’d Have To Kill You (Gallagher Girls #1)
Patricia Briggs: Fair Game (Alpha & Omega #3)

~~~~

Also I finally got a library card, so I kind of went insane and got a LOT of stuff. And I discovered that audiobooks and me do indeed mix if I like the reader. I still do have to figure out if I like the readers of the following reader. Also I will put all the english (book) covers in here, but with the exception of two, I got everything in german. So here is my very first Library Haul.

~~~~

Borrowed Books:

J.R. Ward: Lover At Last (borrowed in english)
Gena Showalter: Intertwined; Unraveled (german: Unsterblich verliebt; Verflucht verliebt)
Chloe Neill: Some Girls Bite; Friday Night Bites (german: Frisch gebissen; Verbotene Bisse)

~~~~

Borrowed Audiobooks:

Jennifer L. Armentrout: Obsidian (borrowed in english)
Kiersten White: Paranormalcy (german: Flames’n’roses – Lebe lieber übersinnlich)
Ally Condie: Matched; Crossed; Reached (german: Die Auswahl; Die Ankunft; Die Flucht)
Lauren Kate: Fallen; Torment (german: Engels Nacht; Engels Morgen)
Lauren Oliver: Delirium (german: Delirium)
Kerstin Gier: Dream a little dream (german: Silber – Das erste Buch der Träume)
Laini Taylor: Daughter of Smoke and Bone (german: Daughter Of Smoke and Bone)
Richelle Mead: Vampire Academy (german: Blutsschwestern)

When I’m going to listen to all those audiobooks you ask. Well, everyday I need two hours to travel to school and back home. So I have two hours everyday to listen to them 😉 I’m probably done with one each week.

~~~~

Also did you know that most of the more popular audiobooks are on YouTube? Or are read by some awesome youtubers, for example (that’s for the german folks) look up crazyLisabooks. She reads the Mythos Academy series. She’s already done with the whole series and I really like her voice.

~~~~

FYI: There will be no Top 3 today, because I’m currently hooked to audiobooks. Obviously.
