It's Monday, What are you Reading? (5)

This meme used to be hosted by J. Kaye's Book Blog but has now moved homes to One Person's Journey Through a World of Books run by Sheila.  It's sad to see this move from J.Kaye's blog but I'm looking forward to getting to know Sheila better!

Exciting News:
I'm so excited to be able to announce my first author interview and giveaway with Juliana Stone!  I'm really looking forward to chatting to Juliana about her new release Black Legacy & she has very kindly offered to give one of my readers a free copy of this eBook.  Watch out for the post which will hopefully be coming in the next couple of days.

Books read last week:
  1. Bitten - Kelley Armstrong
  2. Succubus Dreams - Richelle Mead
  3. Succubus Heat - Richelle Mead
  4. Heavenly - Jennifer Laurens
  5. Kitty and the Midnight Hour - Carrie Vaughn
  6. Black Legacy - Juliana Stone - review coming soon!
What I'm reading now:

What I'll be reading next:

This week I need to read the first 2 books in Richelle Mead's Dark Swan Series (Storm Born & Thorn Queen) as they have to be back at the library by Wednesday.  I'd also really like to read Ashes of Midnight by Lara Adrian as I didn't get round to that one last week.

Challenge updates:

Paranormal Reading Challenge - Read 25/50
Speculative Fiction Reading Challenge - Read 5/24

Contests won:

I had an amazing week for contests this week!!  I won a $30 Amazon voucher at Yahoo group Total Exposure who were having a release party for Beth Kery, Fiona Jayde & Juliana Stone who all had books released this week.  I still haven't decided what I'm going to spend it on yet. 

I won a signed copy of Adored by Tina Donahue after taking part in a scavenger hunt hosted by Erotic Romantic Crush Junkies.  I really can't wait to read this one! 

The week was topped off when I won a copy of Vampire Readings by Patricia Altner from Marta Acosta's blog Vampire Wire.  Vampire Readings is a bibliography containing summaries of 779 vampire books so I'm sure this is going to be really helpful for me to decide where to get my next vamp fix.

I still can't believe I had such an amazing week - perhaps I should have brought a lottery ticket LOL.
