There is one series that is YA that I found intriguing, it is by James Patterson and it is called the Maximum Ride series...it is about a group of kids who were experimented on with aviary DNA and they have wings. The leader of the group is Max...the kids range from 14 - 6 years in age...it was pretty good.
I`ve read this sometimes earlier, and I also liked it, especially Max`s character. Not that I categorize books in any way, except like/don`t like and rarely love, so it is a bit hard to follow your groups.

I've been thinking of reading Maximum Ride. There's a graphic novel version in the bookstore that looks cool, so I keep telling myself to read the books so I can enjoy the graphic novel version.

I am lazy, though. With a humongous "to read" pile. And a tendency to look askance at YA. Is it good enough to bump it up near the top of my "to read" pile?

Um... I've finished Angel's Blood and am well into the second Guild Hunters book. They're definitely different from the Psy/Changeling books. In a lot of ways I think the Guild books are better written with characters that are far more fleshed out. However, I think (just my opinion Smile ) they're missing something that the Psy books excel at: a balance of light-hearted humor with all of the darkness/political intrigue/world-building. The Psy books are easier to relate to for me, well as much as a person can relate to an alternate universe Wink I also think that the first Guild book is better written than the second (so far). In the second, Nalini Singh falls back on all of the phrases she overuses in the Psy books.

But I'm obviously biased 'cause of my love for Judd Laughing

Love Lara Adrian and the Midnight Breed series. I have to admit that I´m a little, uhm nervous (not the word I wanted to say, but it describes my feelings), because Hunter´s story is the next one. He´s still so scary and such a loner - can´t imagine him in any - especially a romantic - relationship.

Christine Feehan´s my moms favourite author, but I can´t get warm with her style. Although I liked the Drake sisters (funny thing: It´s my moms least favourite)

But it was the same with Judd before CbI I think...I couldn't really imagine him having a relationship either^^ In the end worked out very well Wink Or to use an example from the Midnight Breed series...I only say Tegan Wink

Hmm, you´re right about Tegan - and know he and Elise are my favourite couple next to Lucan and Gabrielle

Tracy, I agree I couldn't get int Feehan either.

I tried to read Christina Dodd's 'The Chosen One' series...whoa seriously intense. Couldn't get into it no matter how any times I tried to reread it.

The series actually follows the life of a couple, and it is a murder mystery type genre. I would start with the first book, Naked in Death and then go from there.

There is a trilogy by Stacia Kane about the City of Ghosts - she is my second favourite new author to Nalini Singh. You have to read all three to come to the most satisfactoy conclusion - put it this way - Terrible can be a wonderful thing! The story is based on a drug addicted heroine called Ches, she is brilliant and you start to really feel for her and root for her because she is so flawed!! Her two 'love interests' are both enforcers for rival drug lords who both supply her and that's where things get complicated!! Loved it and it's on my keeper shelf with all NS's Psy Changeling and Guild Hunter novels. Very Happy

Jeaniene Frost . Do try her . You will love Bones .I think he is the most wonderful Vampire ever. He is my absolute favourite. After you have read "One foot in the grave" you will agree with me. Feehan and her often called "feehanisms" drove me nuts but her first few books were good especially Dark Magic. Her other series the one called Ghostwalkers was in my opinion better without the dreadful phrases she kept using in the Carpathian one.

I am also in love with Larissas Ione. Her Demonica series a really great world and dynamics there. There is also another writer who writes about these 8 twins. Jean Johnson and her Sons of Destiny series again an interesting world that came together well. I loved the 6th brother Rydan best.

Hay Patricia, is this the next one of the Stacia Kane books??? If so - wow although I would have been quite happy with it finishing where it finished (if you know what I mean) ! Smile

Sonia, I LOVE Jeaniene Frost! Started the series when I was.. hm, 15, 16? Soo good. Smile

Yes, Cat, it's the fourth book. If you follow the link you'll find the Goodreads-page that lists links to, eg. Amazon. Smile Publishing date is August 5th 2011.

I was happy with the book as an ending for Terrible & Chess, but I think there is much left to tell, just imagine how much things there are left to explore. Awwr, I want to know how the Church-storyarc is going to be. I love how the series is such a perfect mixture of urban and dystopian fantasy.

I don't know if I already mentioned the series here, but everyone, check out the Illusionists by Carolyn Crane! First book: Mind Games on Goodreads | Mind Games on Amazon

Cat and Bones are one of my all-time favourite couples. They´re amazing and so much fun. But I still mourn ´cause of Rodney´s death... I liked him and had lots of respect for being able to handle Justina

lmao xD

I hate the German translation. Well, no, not hate, but there is simply no way to translate the things Bones says into German. So, no, I don't really hate it but I think this is one of the books one HAS to read in the original version (plus maybe the translation, too).

Mate = Mein Freund (Wäh!)
Luv = Süße (WÄÄÄÄH!!)
Kitten = Kätzchen (Wääääääh! >_<)

Even though those translations aren't 'wrong' they simply don't sound right, either.

Got the same impression?

Don´t know, ´cause I only read the German translation *sits in corner and feel ashamed*
But I got what you mean^^

Oh my, I'm going to get you the originals! Very Happy
Ah, that one really is horrible! Sascha Schätzchen, ja, nee!! >_<

But: I don't like German endearments in general. So, I'm always crazy about those things. Wanted to list some examples in English, but I just noticed that I don't like most of the English ones, either xD

I mean.. darling, baby, sweetheart.. I wonder, the one scene, where Hawke calles Sascha "sweetheart".. how will they translate that? I'm hoping for Schnuckiputzi. <3 Very Happy
