- Books are my life--plain and simple! :) My genre of choice is romance, of almost any kind. I love reading, I love sharing my thoughts on the books with others, and I'm always up for recommendations and book conversations! Please, feel free to find me on any of the various websites I frequent, or drop me an email! If you are interested in me reviewing your book (Or you just want to ask me a question), please email me at: The_Book_Queen[at]yahoo[dot]com.
So, here are the three books I received this week. All three are from a contest I won over at Leontine's "Beef Club Preview"). Thanks again, girl, and don't worry about the little mistake in books-- I promise, I've made plenty of "oops" myself! :D
Here's what I won:
Title: Darkest Kiss
Author: Gena Showalter
Series: Lords of the Underworld Series, #2
Publication Date: June 2008
She has tempted many men... but never found her equal.
Though she has lived for centuries, Anya, goddess of anarchy, has never known pleasure. Until Lucien, the incarnation of death--a warrior eternally doomed to take souls to the hereafter. He draws her like no other. And Anya will risk anything to have him.
But when the merciless Lord of the Underworld is ordered by the gods to claim Anya herself, their uncontrollable attraction becomes an anguished pursuit. Now they must defeat the unconquerable forces that control them, before their thirst for one another demands a sacrifice of love beyond imagining....
My original prize from this contest was to be the first three books in the LOTU series-- but when I mentioned to Leontine that I had read the first two, she gave me the option of choosing two substitutes from the bookstore she order through, along with the third book in the series. But, due to a silly (and forgivable!) mistake, I got another copy of Darkest Kiss, which I already own. That's okay though-- this just means that I'll have another book to add to the small group that I plan on giving away in future contests I hold. So if you want to have your own copy of it, stay tuned-- I don't know when I'll hold my next contest (probably not until next year...money's kind of tight this year), but I'll let you know ahead of time! :D
Drake MacKay is no stranger to the double-edged powers of blood witches. His own niece Deidra and his best friend were saved by a baobhan sith: Hannah O'Shea, the same spirit who would not heal Drake's dying wife. Nearly consumed by grief and fury, Drake is nevertheless bound by an unholy promise: for those she gave life, he has pledged his own.
Returning to Hannah's remote isle, Drake is stunned to be released from his obligation. And when he overhears a violent plot stirred up by villagers, he finds himself irresistibly called to warn her — and escapes with her into the night. Alive for more than a century, Hannah has found the words of mortal men to be bitter lies. But there is darkness in their shared past, an evil that threatens Drake's family. Forced to unite, they discover a fire between them that melts their distrust...and a furious passion that may just save them both.
Until Next Time,
But, on the bright side, it's not a long list, so I didn't have to type for hours on end like I usually do. Now watch-- next week's will probably be very, very long! :D
By now, you should know what to do: read, enjoy, and comment-- whether it's to voice your opinion on one of the books I've listed, to suggest more starting with this letter (J), etc. Just have fun with it! :D
Here we go-- on to the J's!
- Jack and Jill by James Patterson (Mystery, Fiction, Crime)
- Jacq's Warlord by Delilah Devlin (Paranormal, Erotica)
- The Jane Austen Book Club by Karen Joy Fowler (Fiction)
- Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte (Classic, Fiction, Literature)
- Jennifer Scales and the Ancient Furnace by MaryJanice Davidson (YA, Fantasy)
- Jennifer Scales and the Messenger of Light by MaryJanice Davidson (YA, Fantasy)
- Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Darkside by Beth Fantaskey (YA, Paranormal, Vampires)
See what I mean? That's it-- that's the whole list for "J"! This must be a sure sign that I need to broaden my horizons more-- I'm sure I'm missing out on a lot of great 'J' books! So if you know of some, or if you have some one your own want to read list, PLEASE, feel free to suggest them and I'll add 'em to my list! :D
Genre: YA, Fantasy, Magic
Publisher: Bloomsbury USA
Nimira is a music-hall girl used to dancing for pennies. So when wealthy sorcerer Hollin Parry hires her to sing accompaniment to a mysterious piano-playing automaton, Nimira believes it will be the start of a better life. In Parry's world, long-buried secrets are about to stir. Unsettling rumors begin to swirl about ghosts, a madwoman roaming the halls, and Parry’s involvement in a group of corrupt sorcerers for whom the rules of the living and dead are meant to be broken for greater power. When Nimira discovers the spirit of a dashing fairy gentleman is trapped within the automaton, she is determined to break the curse. But even as the two fall into a love that seems hopeless, breaking the curse becomes a perilous race against time. Because it's not just the future of these star-crossed lovers that's at stake, but the fate of the entire magical world.
Want to win an ARC with original sketches from the author inside? See http://fabulousfrock.livejournal.com/ for details!
Head on over today to have your name entered into the contest! And be sure to look for Jackie's book in stores every where this December! I know I will. :D
Until Next Time,
Title: Captive Dreams
Authors: Angela Knight and Diane Whiteside
Genre: Contemporary/Futuristic (Yes, it sounds like a weird combination, but you'd have to read it to know what I mean)
Publisher: Penguin Group (USA) Incorporated
Publication Date: December 2008
Celeste and Corinne Carson are more than sisters—they're both bestselling writers, each with an alpha-male hero who fulfills the wildest fantasies of readers. For Celeste, it's Jarred, a conqueror from the future. For Corinne, it's the barbarian Mykhayl from a world long ago. Devilishly sensual warriors, Jarred and Mykhayl have something in common with themselves—they're both far more real than their beautiful creators could have imagined.
Fearing that the sisters are baout to write them off with a single stroke of the pen, Jarred and Mykhayl decide to exact hot, sweet revenge. The plan? Kidnap Celeste and Corinne, spirit them away to the very worlds of which they wrote, and force them to surrender to the sublime punishments of their own uninhibited imaginations...
My Teaser, from Page 180:
"Svetlhana," Khyber rumbled warningly. "You wouldn't dare cause trouble."
She gave him a disguested look. "I would indeed dare, but you will never give me the chance. You will probably return within five minutes, after becoming a hero by rescuing her sister. And I will have to forgive you for having adventures without me," she sniffed.
So far, I'm loving this book-- for one thing, it's Angele Knight (well, the one story is, at least). And for another, it's a good plot line, interesting, and the characters are great. The men are very Alpha Male, which I love, yet they show signs of becoming a bit tamer after they've fallen for their woman. :D
Until Next Time,
As I've said before, you MUST be a resident of the USA or Canada-- I just don't have the money to pay shipping over seas, I'm sorry! In order for your entry to be counted, you MUST leave your working email address in your comment! No email, and your name will not go into the 'hat'. If you do not feel comfortable posting your email in the comment section, you may email me with it instead, but be sure to remind me which comment is yours so I can add you in. If you win, you will have 7 (SEVEN) days in which to contact me with your address information. If I do not hear back from you by the end of that seventh day, I will then put the remainder of the names back into the randomizer and draw a new winner. This person will then have 5 (FIVE) days to contact me, before the process starts all over again! The winner will be chosen from Random.org-- I will put the list of entries in and the first name that comes up will be the winner. No substitutes-- if you win, your prize is the signed ARC of Secret Society. If you already have a copy, please do not enter and allow someone else the chance to read this book. If you find out after you have won that you are already getting a copy of this book from somewhere else, PLEASE tell me and I will draw another name. Though it's not technically a 'rule', I would like to stress that it is a heavy suggestion from myself: If you win this book, please read it and review it! Since this is an ARC, and the book is not released yet, I know the publisher and author would still like feedback. Post it on your blog, on the bookwebsites, it doesn't matter, as long as you do post one. +1 entry: Leave a comment on this post, with your valid email address, to be entered into the contest. Whether or not you do any of the other choices, you MUST do this one! +1 entry: If you become a follower after this post +1 entry: If you post the link and information for this contest on your blogger SIDEBAR. Be sure to leave the link to where you've posted it in your comment. +2 entries: If you were already a follower BEFORE this post (I have a good idea of who you are, but please be sure to put this in your comment to remind me). +2 entries: If you post the link and information for this contest on your blog-- it must be an actual post, not on your sidebar! Be sure to leave the link to where you've posted it in your comment. +2 entries: If you post the link and information for the contest on another website (from Facebook to Twitter, forums, wherever!). Be sure to leave the link to where you've posted it in your comment. You can get up to 4 entries (or TWO separate posts) this way.

Secrets, secrets are no fun. Secrets, secrets hurt someone. . . .
An eccentric new girl. A brooding socialite. The scion of one of New York's wealthiest families. A promising filmmaker. As students at the exclusive Chadwick School, Phoebe, Lauren, Nick, and Patch already live in a world most teenagers only dream about.
They didn't ask to be Society members. But when three of them receive a mysterious text message promising success and fame beyond belief, they say yes to everything—even to the harrowing initiation ceremony in a gritty warehouse downtown and to the ankh-shaped tattoo they're forced to get on the nape of their necks. Once they're part of the Society, things begin falling into place for them. Week after week, their ambitions are fulfilled. It's all perfect—until a body is found in Central Park with no distinguishing marks except for an ankh-shaped tattoo.
Tom Dolby makes his teen fiction debut with this riveting novel about a dangerous society so secret that once you get in, you can never get out.
Sound like an interesting book to read? Then be sure to check out my "Secret Contest", where I'll be giving away ONE signed ARC of Secret Society right here on my blog.
It'll be a fairly straight forward contest--- the usual ways to gain entries (leaving a comment on the post, extras for being a follower or posting on another site, etc), so be sure to come back when the contest opens! I'll leave it open for a full week, and then I'll choose a winner by putting the list in the randomizer (random.org). The winner will then have up to 7 days to contact me with their mailing information, and if they fail to do so on time, the names will go back in (except for the first winner's name) and I'll choose another.
Thanks to you lovely ladies, I've been nominated for "Best Post"!
Any guesses which (now infamous) post got me this nomination? That's right-- my "Oops….Yep, I did it yet Again!" I know we had a lot of fun on this post, talking about how I 'lost control' again AND got a great deal at the same time. :D I have to say, I really enjoyed writing that post, and sharing my bargain deal with you, so I'm glad to know that this is the one they will be judging.
Heck, it's not even about the winning-- it's just nice to know that my blog has even been nominated, noticed, and read by others. I'd be happy even if I came in 11th... Out of 10! Just coming this far is a huge deal for me!
So thank you, dear readers, for coming by, enjoying what I have to say *At least part of the time ;)* and being such great friends! I feel like our blogs, though aimed for the sharing and enjoyment of all things books, are also a great way to meet new people who soon become friends that I hope will stick around for years to come. Thank you!
The judging is to be around September 7th, and soon after the short list of finalist in this category will be posted on the website. The poll for you, the readers, to vote on will also be up at this time. So if you happen to be stopping by the blog that week to vote on other blogs, please be sure to check and see if I've made it or not.
And if my blog happens to be there, well, a few votes wouldn't hurt... ;) But I won't hold it against you for voting for someone else-- I know there are some amazing blogs out there, and I wouldn't blame you for picking one of them, believe me!
First off, here's what I got Saturday-- and all three arrived on the same day, and were (somehow) stuffed into my tiny mailbox. I'm amazed the mailman was even able to shut the door after putting them in! LOL.

Following a traveling minstrel troupe, she's whisked into a world of intoxicating freedom. Then, all too soon, she finds herself in danger - from a vengeful political plot against Scotland and from the man who has come to take her home. Dutybound to return with his brother's wayward bride, Sir High Douglas is not prepared for how her quick wit, courage, and laughing eyes touch his warrior heart. Now, as the merry minstrels play matchmaker and passion sparks between Hugh and Jenny, the conspiracy against Scotland builds...and threatens all they hold dear.
Again, this was from a blog contest I won-- thanks again, Carrie!
Now, these last two aren't romance novels or anything interesting like that, but they did arrive in my mail. Since my one college course, Myths and Legends started the other day, I had to hurry and order my books for the class. Yes, books-- two of them, plus I still need to get a copy of the Iliad by November. These were the two books I'm going to be spending time on over the next few months-- plus, since I'm running out of time, I substituted them into my LT 999 Challenge under 'Non-Fiction', where I had two left to read. :D
That's all for this week-- wow, I have to say, I had a lot! :D And I can't wait to get started on all of them! Thanks again to everyone for hosting the contests I won the various books from, and also thanks to HarperCollins for sending me SS, which I did enjoy, but like I said before, I will be hosting a giveaway for the extra copy.
Enjoy your weekend, everyone!

Title: Dark Visions
Author: L.J. Smith
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing
Pub. Date: September 08, 2009
Genre: YA, Fantasy, Magic, Vampires
Series: Dark Visions Series
GIFTED AND CURSED
Kaitlyn Fairchild has always felt like an outsider in her small hometown. Her haunting eyes and prophetic drawings have earned her a reputation as a witch. But Kait's not a witch: She's a psychic. Tired of being shunned, Kait accepts an invitation to attend the Zetes Institute, where she can have a fresh start and study with other psychic teens.
Learning to hone her abilities with four other gifted students, Kait discovers the intensity of her power — and the joy of having true friends. But those friendships quickly become complicated when Kait finds herself torn between two irresistible guys. Rob is kind and athletic, and heals people with his good energy. Gabriel is aggressive and mysterious, a telepath concealing his true nature as a psychic vampire, feeding off of others' life energy. Together, Rob and Gabriel's opposing forces threaten the group's stability.
Then one of the experiments traps the five teens in a psychic link. A link that threatens their sanity and their lives. And Kaitlyn must decide whom to trust...and whom to love.
I'm a huge fan of Smith's novels, I've read them all and enjoyed them a lot, so it's no wonder that I'm anxious to get my hands on this one! :D She's a wonderful author, and don't let the fact that the books are 'YA' fool you-- anyone who loves fantasy, magic, vampires, and romance will love her work!
Until Next Time,
As many of you probably already know, Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
~Grab your current read. Open to a random page. Share two (2) “teaser” sentences (or short paragraphs) from somewhere on that page.
~BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
~Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
My Teaser Book for the Week:
Author: Brenda Joyce
Publication Date: December 1997
Genre: Historical Romance
She played a dangerous game. Carolyn Browne was a poor bookseller's daughter and an enlightened thinker, delighting London with her scathingly witty columns, written under the name Charles Copperville. Penetrating the town's gilded salons in male disguise, Carolyn soon throws her barbs at the wrong man-- the enigmatic Russian prince, Nicholas Sverayov.
He was a dangerous target. His notoriety, extravagances, and indulgent disregard for social convention fuel Carolyn's outrage. Nicholas has moved through the balls and soirees of high society effortlessly, a natural target of gossip, envy, and desire. But Nicholas is furious to find himself lampooned by Copperville, and quickly discovers Carolyn's dearly held secret. Now, as the two spar, a new game begins-- a game of deception and pride, of longing and chance.
And they played for the ultimate prize... As Nicholas sweeps Carolyn from the teeming streets and gala balls of Regency London to the splendor and majesty of St. Petersburg, against all odds the unlikely lovers embark upon a whirlwind of passion and peril until there is no turning back-- for the stakes have changed, demanding no less of them than the unwavering courage to claim the love of a lifetime.
My Teaser, Page 204 :
"Do not play any more games," she said, inhaling. His mouth brushed hers. His eyes were fire.
His smile was brief. "Does this seem like a game?" His lips feathered hers again.
Against them, her heart expanding impossibly, she said, "No." Love was not a game. Oh, God. She was doomed.
"I did not think so," he murmured, and he kissed her again, open mouthed, at once firm and possessive, sensual and tender.
*Wipes Brow*. Wow. Talk about a steamy scene! :D
Well, I'm not sure when I'll have tomorrow's post up (WoW), but it will probably be later in the day. My one college class, 'Myths and Legends' starts tomorrow at 10, but my other courses don't start until next week, so I'll still have most of the day to work on the post-- and my review for Secret Society, which I finished Sunday (and really enjoyed!).
My Rating Scale
- 5 Stars= Fantastic. Perfect rating, and a must read for anyone!
- 4.5 Stars= Great--- highly recommended!
- 4 Stars= Good, a very enjoyable read.
- 3.5 Stars= Nice, quick read.
- 3 Stars= Okay, about average.
- 2.5 Stars= Eh....Not the worst, but below average.
- 2 Stars= Borderline fail...Something was missing!
- 1.5 Stars=I didn't like it.
- 1 Star= Major flaws.... Or not my cup of tea, depends on how you care to look at it...
- 0.5 Star= DNF or DNE (did not enjoy--- at all).
