Haha! very nice! I haven't read those ones before! I just finished "The Fallen" series by Tom Sniegoski and they were pretty good! You can always check those ones out

I also have "The Immortals" and "Blue Bloods" series on my Nook, but haven't started reading them yet, so I'm afraid I can't provide an official opinion - but they seem interesting!

Music motivates me when exercising. I just know I have not control when I start to read a book to be able to put it down. I often find myself up until 1 a.m. knowing I have to get up at 6 to get ready for work. Maybe next year my New Years challenge instead of weight loss will be more self control with books. ha ha

I have done audiobooks no long drives and walking the dog, but not really for workouts. I think it would slow me down cause I would be listening to the book rather than working out. Plus I use books to reward myself for meeting my workout goals, reading time in exchange for workout time (the games we play with ourselves sometimes).

My sister in law has all the Twilight Books and the Harry Potter books on audio. We listened to Twilight (first book) on the drive when I moved from IN to CA. I cannot remember how far we got on them, but she likes to listen to them at work. I found that they moved to slow for me. I am a very fast reader and am impatient to get to the parts I liked!

I have also read the fallen series, House of night series, City of Bones,Ash and Glass, and all of the Sherrilyn Kenyon Dark Hunter, Dream Hunter etc. (about 20 books) Not reading anything right now because I do not want to get distracted for my exercising. When I pick up a book nothing else gets done.

I will let you know on that one! I am on the last volume of the Tiger and Del series, not sure how long it will take on that one, knowing me, not very long. I am getting to visit home next week though, so I know I won't be reading all that much save the plane trips!

Book Series, I am all over on these.

The Sword of Truth is my all time favorite series. Terry Goodkind just weaves a tale like no other. He has another Richard and Kahlan novel coming out this year, soon I think.

Terry Brooks, another fantasy author. Any of his, most known for his Shannara world.

The Noble Dead series, about a damphir that hunts vampires. Barb and JC Hendee

The Vampire Academy books were REALLY good. I was surprised by them!

House of Night-- I need to get the last one released this month

I am currently reading The Novels of Tiger and Del, by Jennifer Roberson. There are 6 books total, can purchase them in volumes.

Harry Potter (of course)

I haven't read the sookie stackhouse series yet either, I have also not seen True Blood.

One day I will also sit down and read Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series.

Oh! Can't believe I forgot this one!! It is called the Tairen Soul Series by CL Wilson. It is under paranormal romance but stores have it in different places and there are 5 books, all released. It is WONDERFUL!! Romance, Magic, fate of the world stuff all rolled into one series. Elves, Fey, Humans, Mages -- it has it all.

I really want to read a series that I keep seeing on the shelves but cannot for the life of me think of the name of the books. I also want to read the Mortal Instruments, but we are flat broke right now. These are just a few of the series I have read, there are tons more I can't get to or see right now.

emoticon I can't believe it, people who read the same books that I do. I have read all of the ones that you all have mentioned. I can't get enough of them. Thirst series by Christopher Pike, The Night World series by LJ.Smith, Morganville Vampires, etc.
I like all these and can't wait for any new ones. It is nice to know that there are fellow followers of the same books.

Have a great weekend and stay strong and keep on Sparking.

Actions speak louder than words.

Don't worry if you falter now and then, just be sure to try again. A little bit of healthy guilt can work wonders.

Smile and make somene's day.

I thought it was very well done!! I just happened across it one day while I was looking for something after I had read the Twilight series and it just called my name! I was so disappointed when I got to the last book!! So good to know there is more!! And someone to share it with makes it even better!

For sure! Supposedly she's writing another 3 books in the Mortal Instruments series (woot!)

Clockwork Angel is a prequel with different characters but in the same world - I guess it leads into things brought up in the 4th Mortal Instruments book, which is gonna be called City of Fallen Angels and comes out in April. Clockwork Angel begins a series called Infernal Devices that's going to be a multi-book series as well.

Here's the book release schedule that's listed on her website:

April 5, 2011: City of Fallen Angels (Mortal Instruments)
September 2011: The Clockwork Prince (Infernal Devices)
May 2012: City of Lost Souls (Mortal Instruments)
December 2012: The Clockwork Princess (Infernal Devices)
September 2013: City of Heavenly Fire (Mortal Instruments)

YAY another Mortal Instruments fan!!! I can't WAIT for the next one to come out! Have you read Clockwork Angel yet? I haven't read it yet, but I need to before the next one comes out!

I also enjoyed the Fallen series by Lauren Kate, Hush Hush series by Becca Fitzpatrick, Wolves of Mercy Falls by Maggie Stiefvater, The Fallen by Thomas E. Sniegoski (its a series of 4 books)

I also have the Immortals series & the Blue Blood series that I'm looking forward to digging into once I get some more time!

The Mortal Instruments Series was the best!! House Of Night is really good too!! Sookie Stackhouse I loved also!! I have a series by Christine Feehan (Masters of Darkness)that I have not started yet along with a series by Brenda Joyce(Masters of Time). Im in the middle of a series by Linda Lael Miller(The Mckittericks)and one by Nora Roberts. I am all over the board in reading and usually have 2 or more books going at a time. I am finding I dont have as much time to read now that I am working out! I am fine with that!!

As far as favorite authors go - I love anything by Neil Gaiman, Shakespeare & Poe. I love the Harry Potter series, the Sookie Stackhouse series, His Dark Materials trilogy, the Sword of Truth series, the Mortal Instruments series & lots of YA fantasy books. The hubby bought me a Nook for my birthday last July, so I've been a total book nerd since
