Day #21 Birthday Bash with Monday Must Haves + Giveaway

Jun 7, 2010

Welcome to Day #21 of JoJo's 30 Day Birthday Bash! Today was suppose to be Michele Hauf, but due to technical difficulties on my end, We have moved Michele to Friday. So today i have decided to share some of my fav books that i think are MUST HAVES!

Dangerous Highlander
By: Donna Grant

For centuries the MacLeod brothers have held themselves apart from the clan to protect mortals from the demons and gods bound to their warrior souls. Until a woman enters their lives despite the legend of the curse and captivates Lucas Macleod. He is magnificently strong - and dangerously seductive. One of the fiercest of his clan, Lucas MacLeod is a legend among warriors, inspiring fear in man and woman alike. For three hundred years, he has locked himself away from the world, hiding the vengeful god imprisoned in his soul. But then, a young lass caught in a raging storm awakens his deepest impulses...and darkest desires. Cara doesn't believe the rumours about MacLeod castle - until the majestic Highland warrior appears like a fiery vision in the storm, pulling her into his powerful arms, and into his world of magic and Druids. An epic war between good and evil is brewing. And Lucas must battle his all-consuming attraction for Cara - or surrender to the flames of a reckless, impossible love that threatens to destroy them both...

Eclipse (Twilight Saga )
By: Stephenie Meyer

As Seattle is ravaged by a string of mysterious killings and a malicious vampire continues her quest for revenge, Bella once again finds herself surrounded by danger. In the midst of it all, she is forced to choose between her love for Edward and her friendship with Jacob—knowing that her decision has the potential to ignite the ageless struggle between vampire and werewolf. With her graduation quickly approaching, Bella has one more decision to make: life or death. But which is which?

One Foot in the Grave
( A Night Huntress Novel )
By: Jeaniene Frost

It's been four years and Cat is sure she's moved on: there's a new man in her life and her vampire-slaying is now government sanctioned. But, as she stand at the altar at her friend's wedding, Cat is stunned to make eye contact with one of the groomsmen - none other than Bones. Before either has a chance to adjust, it becomes clear that a hit has been taken out on Cat. The volatile pair must team up again as they track down the mole inside Cat's organization, prevent her father from killing everyone, and try to forge a lasting relationship in the dangerous world they live in.

On the Edge
By: Ilona Andrews

Rose Drayton lives on the Edge, between the world of the Broken (where people drive cars, shop at Wal-Mart, and magic is a fairy tale) and the Weird (where blueblood aristocrats rule, changelings roam, and the strength of your magic can change your destiny). Only Edgers like Rose can easily travel from one world to the next, but they never truly belong in either.

Rose thought if she practiced her magic, she could build a better life for herself. But things didn’t turn out how she planned, and now she works a minimum wage, off the books job in the Broken just to survive. Then Declan Camarine, a blueblood noble straight out of the deepest part of the Weird, comes into her life, determined to have her (and her power).

But when a terrible danger invades the Edge from the Weird, a flood of creatures hungry for magic, Declan and Rose must work together to destroy them—or they’ll devour the Edge and everyone in it . . .

I have read the entire Twilight series and I just got On The Edge and One Foot in the Grave. I havent read them yet though. Dangerous Highlander looks good! (the blurb sounds good too! :P)

I have read Grant and Meyer and love both but for very different reasons. This is a great group of books here!

Thanks Babe!

A Simple Love of Reading June 7, 2010 at 10:18 PM  

I have read Stephenie Meyer, seriously there aren't a lot of us readers out there that haven't! ;) And I loved Eclipse, I think it was my favorite of the three because there is a lot of action in that book...and a lot of Jacob face time (Team Jacob all the way)!

I keep hearing amazing things about Ilona Andrews so I think I really want to give her books a try! And I own Dangerous Highlander, haven't read it as of yet, but it is moving ever closer to the top of my TBR pile!!!


mbreakfield June 7, 2010 at 10:24 PM  

I would love to win Dangerous Highlander.

throuthehaze June 7, 2010 at 10:44 PM  

I think the only author up there I have read is Stephanie Meyer although I would love to read the others. I love the Twilight books as well as The Host :)

I've read the Twilight series but all the other authors would be new to me!

donnas June 7, 2010 at 11:01 PM  

I love Jeaniene Frost's series. Its awesome and I have read all of them so far. Ilona Andrews - I have read the Kate Daniels books, but not On the Edge. It looks great though. And like most others I have read the Twilight series.

I've read the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer and have to say it was a failure, only the first book was decent. I've also read Jeanine Frost's series and love it! Her writing is awesome!

I've read all the Twilight and Cat and Bones books. Love them all. I think I'd like to read the Dangerous Highlander. Thanks.

buddyt June 8, 2010 at 2:03 AM  

I am a Follower.

I have read all the authors, although not the books that you are offering. I agree with you that those I know are all good writers whose books are enjoyable.

Jeaniene Frost is the only one I don't know so I would like to enter for her book.

Thanks for the giveaway and for opening it up to worldwide entries.

I've read Twilght and Steph is awsome but I must say On the Edge and Dangerous Highlander both sound awsome. I think I need to check them out.

Sweet Vernal Zephyr June 8, 2010 at 11:32 AM  

I read Twilight at the urging of my friend who happens to be an 8th grade english teacher. She sucked me in!

I love One foot in the Grave! I listened to it on audio book and am totally hooked!

Thanks for the chance to win ~ Miranda

Happy birthday #21!!!

I would have to pick Eclipse.....


Colleen,  June 8, 2010 at 1:06 PM  

Loved the TWILIGHT saga... was not going to read it, but after watching the first movie I had to know what happened next... I was surprised at how close the movies were to the books... two thumbs up!
Ilona Andrews is a new name for me...

I have read Jeanine's work before and I really enjoy her writing.

Ilona Andrews is on my TBB list...her work looks incredible.

Donna Grant's books are also on my TBB list...I can't wait to start reading her work.

I'm not fond of Twilight so I haven't read any of Stephanie's books.

Ina June 8, 2010 at 2:14 PM  

Hi JoJo!
I haven't read Stephanie Meyer so far, because the series doesn't "speak" to me...
Ilona Andrews on the other hand is one of my auto-buy authors and the books are all keepers for me!!!
thanks for sharing :)
greetings, Ina

Jason June 8, 2010 at 2:46 PM  

I've ready the Twilight saga, Meyer's writting is good, though the books had more of a juvenile tone than I'd like. But I grant that it is in the YA genre, so this isn't a surprise. Just not exactly what I (as an adult) wanted.

Suzette June 8, 2010 at 2:48 PM  

I've only read Meyers and I thinks her writing flows quite nicely. I never felt like the books were too slow or too fast. She describes things beautifully without over describing. I've read some stories where I could have done without all the descriptions of everything from the places to the character. She definitely grips you and doesnt let go. Yeah I do like her.

All the other books sound good especially Dangerous Highlander as I love me some Highlanders and I really want to try Jeaniene Frost. Checked out her chat and her books sound really good.

van_pham June 8, 2010 at 3:51 PM  

I have read books by Jeaniene Frost, S. Meyers, and Ilona Andrews, i LOVE all their books.

I haven't read Dangerous Highlander, but if you put in on the list with these other books, it MUST be great!

thanks for the giveaway!


Jenn June 8, 2010 at 5:06 PM  

I'm one of those rare people who hasn't read the Twilight books, and I haven't read any of the other authors either

joder June 8, 2010 at 7:59 PM  

I've read the Meyer books and didn't care for them at all. I found them to be too angsty and juvenile for my taste.

- I've only Meyers, as for others they are still a new for me Author.

Even though I have been a vampire fan since the '60s I am highly attracted to the Highlanders. Have a great month talking about the undead and the best Birthday Bash!

Lady_Graeye June 12, 2010 at 1:43 AM  

I have the entire Twilight series; I think Eclipse is the best book in the series. I haven't read Donna Grant yet though she is on my TBR list. Jeaniene Frost's One Foot in the Grave sounds interest and way out cool; I've got to get it. On the Edge by Ilona Andrews book has gotten great reviews; It's a must on my list too. What can I say, I want them all if I don't already own them. He He!

Lady_Graeye June 12, 2010 at 2:18 AM  

oh email address...


booklover0226 June 12, 2010 at 11:53 AM  

I've enjoyed Donna Grant's works and look forward in reading Jeaniene Frost's works.

I'd like to win On the Edge. The only author here I've read was Stephanie Meyer and while I loved some of the books there was 1 book and a half of another that I didn't care for much.


chelleyreads June 16, 2010 at 7:21 PM  

no but i have dangerous highlander waiting for me on my shelf. i'd love to read on the edge. it looks and sounds awesome.

JoAnna June 16, 2010 at 8:27 PM  

I have read the whole Twilight series. This series got me reading again. Now I read all the time. I have Jeaniene Frost's series but haven't read them yet. My friend has the Donna Grant series and I haven't read that yet, either.

Anne June 17, 2010 at 2:34 PM  

I really like Jeaniene Frost's Cat and Bones series and the one spin off so far. I love Ilona Andrews Kate Daniels series but couldn't get into On the Edge. I read the Twilight saga and it was ok, but book 3 and 4 really dragged (but I had to see it to the end). Donna Grant is usually a fun, easy read.

Darcie K. June 17, 2010 at 5:34 PM  

I read all of Stephanie Meyer's books. I love her!

Anonymous,  June 17, 2010 at 6:29 PM  

Who hasn't read Twilight ? I have and I really enjoyed the books and movies so far.

Stella (Ex Libris) June 18, 2010 at 10:44 AM  

I have Donna Grant's Dangerous Highlander on my TBR shelf along with Eclipse (read the first 2 and Midnight Sun), and On the Edge too. I LOVE the Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews, her writing is amazing! I ahven't read Jeaniene Frost yet, though everyone is praising her, so she is definitely on my wishlist! :-)

Please enter me too.

Spav June 18, 2010 at 5:55 PM  

I've read both Ilona Andrews and Jeaniene Frost and I loved them. Can't wait to read the next books of their series!


Leilani @Leilani Loves Books June 18, 2010 at 7:55 PM  

Of course I read The Twilight series.
Jeaniene Frost is one of my favorite authors ever!!!
