    I wanted to ask...does the story continue from book to book like Twilight? or can you just pick up whatever book and start reading?

      Book to book, you have to read them in order or they will make NO SENSE at all haha, that would be tough! :)

        Oh I have all of Kelley Armstrong's books.. except the teenage ones she's just written. I like her books as well! Plus I met her in person during a book signing a couple years ago.. so that was a coolness factor to me.. heh!

          hehe, that's awesome! :) So you haven't read the Summoning then I'm guessing? A friend of mine enjoyed it, so I probably will too. She also told me her adult fiction books were good too so I'll have to pick them up some time.

            No I haven't read The Summoning or The Awakening yet. I think she has a third one out of that series too or it's coming out soon. I will eventually pick those up to read but gotta get through some other stuff before that.

            Her adult books are mainly about werewolves and witches.. but there are a couple of vampire characters thrown in as well.. and demons. I really enjoy them. She also has a separate series about a female hit-woman that's not related to her other 2 series.

              Oh no! You girls are adding to my ever growing "to read" list. I didn't mean to rip so much on the HofN series. It's a really good light read. I do enjoy it! I'm starting school this week so I'm really thankful to have an easy quick read where I can put it down and pick it right back up awhile later and not forget what was going on!

                Rachel - I don't think you were ripping on it, just giving your honest opinion. Nothing wrog with that! :) It's a great light read, I usually can get half a book done in one sitting so I'm usually done a book in about a day. They're short too, which I like.

                    I came across another series that deals with the fictional (or maybe not!!!) vampire/werewolf/witch/fairy type of thing. It's "The Mortal Instruments" trilogy by Cassandra Clare. City of Bones is the first, with both City of Ashes & City of Glass already released. The Mortal Instruments, by Cassandra Clare
                    I think I may pick this series up when I'm done with "My Sister's Keeper".

                      ok, you've convinced me to add the HON books to my list.

                      I keep walking past them at Sam's and I figure why not for $5. I'll spend that much on library late fees!

                      I read the Vampire Diaries by L. J. Smith when I was a "young adult" when they first came out in the early 90s. The CW has turned them into a new fall series. From the previews I've seen, the vampires get all Buffy-faced when they turn. I'm a TV whore, so I know I'll watch it, though! I might need to re-read them now that I am older and there are 2 more in the series.

                      Her Night World series is now in volumes so 3 books in one. I picked one up the other day thinking it was the first in the set but it was the last. I read the first 3 chapters and couldn't figure out what was going on! LOL
