TGIF @GReads #1

This one is the other meme I'm gonna do. Again, I shamelessly copied joined the meme when I saw Patty do it on her blog here - she does a coupla Friday memes, but this is the one I wanna join!

Okay! This meme is a weekly one, and hosted over at GReads.

Today's theme is Book Recommendations:

Recommend It: Which book from the last 10 you've read 
would you recommend to a friend?


Well, GReads, I'm really glad you asked that question, lol. I have had a really good reading month so far, and out of my last 15 books, I probably would recommend about 10. 

My two favorites so far of the last ten are 

Silver Borne, the fifth book in Patricia Briggs' Mercedes Thompson series. I love, love, love, this series to bits. This installment was somewhat focused on Samuel, who is my favorite werewolf, and so I was extra invested in his story. And it broke my heart. I spent the book with a big ole lump in my throat for my Samuel. But it was all resolved excellently and he had the beginnings of his own HEA, so I am a happy camper. And no mention of those despicable vampires made the story even sweeter for me :)

Caveat: I do think for full appreciation, this series should be read in order, as the characters build up from book to book, so this recommendation would be to convince a friend to start the series so they can get to Samuel, or hurry up and catch up so we can gush about Samuel!!

I think Neil Gaiman is a master of fantasy and horror. He knows just how to mix it right so that it is entertaining for children and hella creepy for adults. The Graveyard Book is a coming of age story that is told excellently. I can't say enough good things about it. The pacing, the characters, the writing, the life lesson - this book (and Neil Gaiman) is made of awesome!


  1. I haven't read any Gaiman's books yet and can't wait to attack something by him. I've only heard good things!

  2. I hope you get to read him soon, Tanya Patrice. I have only read about 4 of his books, but each of them was a major winner for me!

  3. The Graveyard Book is the only Gaiman book I've read so far and it was a lovely read! As for Mercy Thompson, yes. Yes I do need to read this series. Remind me again why I haven't picked the books up yet? I lub werewolves. Urban fantasy. Good fiction. And this is recommended time and time again!

    Once Upon A Time

  4. I want to read The Graveyard Book. This is a great cover, by the way. :)

  5. I know what you mean Hannah! Once I picked it up, I didn't know why it took me so long, and why so many people had to prod me into reading it!

    Thanks, Alexa. I hope you do read it, and that you like it when you do!

  6. I totally read The Graveyard Book recently and it surprised me. I actually really enjoyed it :]

  7. Lol Jasmine Rose! I was a bit worried I wasn't going to enjoy it the first five chapters or so, but I was totally wrong and ended up loving it :))
