Yeah Yeah I know it's March, but what have you been reading so far in 2012? I've been ignoring my Kindle and reading lots of books of my tbr shelves.

Charmed Sphere by Catherine Asaro which was very much a duplicate of the story in Charmed Destinies that I read last year, it was just from a different charachter's angle, but it was the same story. Bit of a let down.

Storm Glass, Sea Glass and Spy Glass by Maria V Snyder which was a great trilogy.

Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side by Beth Fantaskey which was a bit boring and hormonal teenager-ish though whats-his-name was hot!

Scarlet and Crimson by Jordan Summers which were good reads. I read Red a few years ago and hadn't got around to reading the rest of the trilogy. But well worth reading.

The Gathering by Kelley Armstrong was really good, set in the otherworld, another YA series, which almost connects with the Darkest Powers series...almost. I've preordered the next book to arrive on my kindle.

and falling, fly by Skyler White which was a big let down, beautiful cover, but made me think too much. Too philosophical for an Urban Fantasy.

got around to reading Ghost Town by Rachel Caine, I've been working my way through this series as I've bought the books second hand. I need to get hold of the next few in the series now. Caine has a way of writing that hooks you in and keeps you reading. I've followed her writing for years.

I've also been listening to a lot of audiobooks seeing as audbile had a sale and I got a few bargains... or so I thought.

Angel's Blood by Nalini Singh which wasn't a bad listen.

Dead until Dark by Charlaine Harris I remembered reading this years ago and not being particularly enamoured with it, I never bothered with the rest of the series, but the audio snippet sounded good. I remember why I didn't enjoy it that much. It's quite slow going with lots of blah. But that is just my humble opinion.

I also got Grave Secret again by Charlaine Harris which I didn't realise was the last in the series. I am glad though as from the sounds of it I'd have lost interest as well. I certainly didn't feel like I'd missed something not reading the first three {is it three??} books.

However I am LOVING listening to the marla mason series, which I already own in PB, Blood Engines, Poison Sleep, Dead Reign and Spell Games by T.A. Pratt.

So what are y'all reading at the moment? I'm about to head up to bed and get stuck into Corsets and Clockwork

corsets and clockwork was a great anthology, I felt that maybe 1 or 2 stories weren't essentially what I would call steampunk/romance but all stories were original and had not appeared in other forms. The stories I enjoyed tended to be from authors I had not yet tried or have on my tbr shelves.

Haven't been reading the paranormal list lately but:

Just finished reading a new paranormal series by Suzanne Brockmann, Born to Darkness. slow starter but got better, several characters with various storylines.
Fair Game (Alpha & Omega 3) was great as usual. Really like Patricia Briggs series, waiting for the next Mercy Thompson bk.
Hearts & Swords was a great anthologu of Celta novels, Robyn D Owens writes some great series (the Summoning, new Mystic circle series and of course Celta)

*cc* I love Robin's writings, might put hearts and swords on my wishlist. I have read Book one of Alpha and Omega, but haven't picked up anymore of that series, yet. Though I've read pretty much everything else she has published.

*greatspock* I read the stand many many years ago and it really scared me. I'd decided to graduate early from Point Horror's and hit the hard stuff. Maybe I should do a re-read. I don't read things too horror these days. I prefer fantasy with a little bit mixed in.

I've finished Kelley Armstrong's The Reckoning which has been pretty actionpacked. I've now pre-ordered Thirteen which is going to be the last book she writes in the Women of the Otherworld series.

I've also been reading some freebies for the Kindle, but have found the Grammar and Spelling to be quite frustrating, it really knocks me off the storyline.

I managed to pick up a copy of Forever by Maggie Stiefvater, I've been on the reserved list for it from our library since it's release and it's not made it to me so far. It was very dull, in fact most of it was pointless reading and it concluded more or less as the first and second book did. Slow paced.

Not Paranormal but a good YA read, Cory Doctorow's Little Brother was action packed, but full of info dumps for those who don't know about programming.

Going back to reading some paperbacks as my Kindle can wait, Little Monster is now a running around tot and want's more stuff in her room, so my books have to be cleared out, but with nowhere else to go, I'm having to read and let them go. So it means I'm reading things I'm not likely to want to keep, which may mean unexciting reads.
