October 8th is the one year anniversary of my first review posted on Fiction Vixen. Look how far I have come, from guest reviewer to regular reviewer!! Since the typical gift for a one year anniversary is paper I think I will buy myself a book…or seven…but I don’t know what to buy. Most of my book purchases are done on impulse. I see something that is recommended, I check out the blurb or review and then I buy it. Very few books I buy are part of a thought out process. So I would like to buy one that I, and everyone else, has provided thought towards.
Recently I have been on a dark erotica kick but that doesn’t mean I have to stay that way. Maybe if I tell everyone my likes/dislikes you can help me pick out a special book for my anniversary!
This one is easy for me. Karen Marie Moning’s Fever series is my favorite. I read a ton of ongoing series, in fact most of my books are probably connected to a series in some way. The Fever series stands above all of those. It left me gasping, guessing and flailing for answers. How many books can you say have done that? Do you have one like that?
Barrons/Roarke/Bones. I like ‘em cool, confident, sexy and smokin’ hot with a bit of alpha-hole thrown in there. No betas for me, please.
Cat/Kate. This one took me a minute to think about but those two names kept popping into my head. Both are kick-ass females that never needed their men to survive. They had lives before the men but now are made whole with their men. TSTL need not apply. No thank you.
Well recently it has been dark, contemporary erotica. Overall, it might be historical though. There is something about the taboo of sex in historical settings that gets me. In this area I am open to pretty much everything although the PNR market has been over saturated lately and I think we are hurting for something fresh.
Now this is the hard one. How do you narrow it down to one book? But my favorite book would likely be Acheron or Shadowfever. Of course, they are both connected to a series, which is not necessary here, but I would describe them as EPIC. I could not put either book down. I even took a vacation day from work to read them. And when they were finished I was in a book funk for a week afterwards.
I know I don’t ask for much, but can you help me find something that could fit into several of the categories above? Genius if you can find one to fit all of them!
Last but not least…I want to say thank you to Amy, Angela, Catherine, Samantha and most of all Sophia. The last year has been a blast with you guys. Thanks for allowing me to play! *sniff*
