Hello. Welcome to my mind when it comes to the color red. Check out my picks for the color red for the color me pretty challenge. Sorry i was so late on this one. I have been feeling really crappy the past couple of days. What you see in this picture is Red Riding Hood the movie, Dark Lover by J.R. Ward, and Clifford The Big Red Dog by Norman Bridwell. You can tell that i am a kid at heart with this one. Enjoy! #red #colormepretty @Sweetkokoro

Sorry I missed this yesterday. Better later than never!
1. Black Dagger Brotherhood. I own every single book in this series. 🖤
2. Mustard. I hate it 😝
3. I'm an terrified of birds & driving over railroad tracks.
4. So technically I have 2 half brothers but they were older & lived w/ their dad & 2 step sisters but we were already adults when our parents married so I grew up an only child.
5. Okey Dokey 👍

I was hankering for paranormal romance and this series was the first to pop into my head. I dont think I ever finished the series and clearly it's been a LONG time since I read the first one because I didn't realize that I already had it on my Nook until I tried to purchase it just now 😂 #romantsy

My first JR Ward book! (I thought it was a male author🤦‍♀️) About 24% finished and I‘m really starting to get into it. I have had massive book hangover from the Throne of Glass series lol. Also- to anyone else that listens to this on audible, the production is...weird. One “chapter” according to the app is about 4-5 chapters as narrated.

What a hard decision! So many authors I love. The one I usually turn to when I have read several uninspiring books in a row is J.R. Ward. Always good storytelling and on the light side. I can always connect with her characters. 💜

Woodchuc67 The BDB had me at hello🥰. J.R. Ward has such an unique style of writing that leaves you wanting more🔥! They are so tuff and scary but she also gives them a lighter side when it comes to their loved ones💕! She also slides in some unique sometimes sarcastic humour too💥. If you like the supper natural world (especially 🧛‍♂️) and are not scared to get caught up in language, hot erotic s*x and no holding back fighting🔥💥🧛‍♂️. @CoverToCoverGirl (edited) 10mo

So I finished this one during a class trip with my ninth graders. Since there are older we could leave them alone for some time. So I could do some ‚light‘ reading. Light it has been indeed. The story is very superficial and predicable - so are the ‚hot‘ parts of the book. Total pan for me. #jrward #darklover #blackdagger #blackdaggerseries #blackdaggerbrotherhood

Riveted_Reader_Melissa You‘re smarter than me, I read quite a few in this series until I burned out on it. I use to wait for the new releases impatiently, just shows how much our reading tastes grow and change over time, and how some genres can become way to formulaic if we read too many of them in a row. 12mo
MariaW @Riveted_Reader_Melissa I think ten years ago I would‘ve liked very much, but as said I already to many books in general and books like this one. 12mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @MariaW Yep, I know exactly what you mean. 12mo

I feel bad for taking so many books out of the open library in one go, but what is a reader to do, when she is presented with almost a complete series?
And I don't think I'll be reading these twice, so I can always put them back 😉

Mehso-so

Maybe because I had this series recommended to me so many times I expected too much, but this book was just sort of meh. Having people referred to as “males” and “females” like a large group of faceless, nameless, almost interchangeable people really irked me. I didn‘t really care for Wrath that much which was another reason this book wasn‘t for me.

I have heard so many people (almost exclusively women) talk about how good this series is, but I just didn't feel it. The story was meh and the characters were annoying. Maybe it gets better, but I'm not going to read any more to find out.

TheRomantiCate Oh I‘m so sorry you didn‘t enjoy it!! It took me a while to get into, but now I‘m obsessed with the series... 1y
sloanghost This went around the cafe staff at Large Bookstore Chain but I think laughing about it was part of the appeal 1y
Quirkybookworm I like the series where I can can just relax and laugh outloud at their corny jokes. 1y
Traci1 @TheRomantiCate I'm not big into romance, so I think that was the main issue. I really dislike the "love at first sight (or in this case at first sniff)" thing. So everything with Beth and Wrath felt off. Then the cop kept calling every woman Baby, and it just made me see him as some creepy uncle type guy. I can see why it might appeal to some. It just wasn't for me. 1y
TheRomantiCate @Traci1 I see and I totally understand 😄😄 1y

I pride myself on not being a book snob, I‘ll try anything but I must admit when my best friend bought me these for my birthday....😲 Is this just lady porn with vampires?! We‘ve been friends since we were 3yrs so I have to give em a go but has anyone else read these?? Are they as bad as they look? 😳

Scurvygirl Well it got picks or so-sos, not my kind of read, but wouldn‘t hurt to try and if you liked it, then you know. If not then at least you tried it. 2y

I resisted these books for so long. I thought they can't be that good. Normal paranormal romance- eh dime a dozen. Nope, not at all. A delightfully different take on vampires when I thought I'd read every possible trope. The next one is in my Libby queue, though I'll probably end up spending extra time in my car again just to finish this or that chapter.

Mr. X and Mr. O are our supposed criminal masterminds in this book... but wait, there's more! We have vampires (warriors) named: Wrath, rhage, zsadist, phury, and tohrment.

Sweet. Mercy. J. R. Ward did not even try to scrape the bottom of the metaphorical barrel for those gems. I am not sure whether I should laugh, roll my eyes, or plead to a higher power for inner strength. (Maybe all?) 🤔
