Okay. First of all…I hope everyone had a fabulous Thanksgiving with their families and if you braved Black Friday, as I did, I salute you 🙂 Also…I totally forgot to announce that I’d be taking a break from blogging while I cooked like a mad woman and shopped til I dropped. Sorry. My bad.
Anyway…I wanted to blog today about Nook book suggestions. As you may or may not know, I recently procured a Nook. The only problem is that I have no idea what books to buy.
When I’m in a store, a snazzy front cover or catchy title usually draws my attention first. Then, I read the back of the book. If that’s good, I read the first page. If I like that I might sit down and read the first chapter. If all is good after that, the book goes into my basket and I help a fellow author out by buying their hard earned book.
With my Nook, I scroll through the library until my eyes go numb. I really haven’t even checked to see if I can read samples or not. Maybe I should start there because at this point, unless it’s a book I’ve heard of, I really have no idea which books I’ll like and which ones I won’t. Granted…most of the Nook books are pretty inexpensive but if you buy 5 a week, that can add up. 20 Nook books I don’t care for could buy 2-5 books I love.
Soooo…I need recommendations!!
I like all books, but I’m partial to Urban Fantasy/Paranormal Romance. No whining heroines and no people dying of cancer or any other disease. Those books are depressing to me…I prefer getting lost in a fantasy world 🙂
I do like Vampires, but if I read another book about bloodsuckers I might keel over. And I like some Zombie books but Zombies just aren’t sexy. They’re dead and they eat people. I prefer a little sexy.
I like heroes that aren’t the Knight in Shining Armor type but have a little edge to them, and I prefer heroines who are smart and kick butt.
Also…I like a plot that still rocks WITHOUT the romantic element. Sexual tension is fabulous but if there isn’t any other meat to the story I usually pass.
If you know of any books that fit, please let me know!!! I need something to get lost in.
