Lets talk Books today!

One of my favorite things to do (besides making candles and soap) is to read.  There is nothing better than curling up in my favorite comfy chair and getting lost in a world of pure imagination.
It seems like forever since I've been able to take the time to read a good book.  I'm one of those readers that cant start a book without finishing it, so with the beginning of my busy season looming near it's been hard to set aside enough time to properly absorb a good book.  That's why this week I am at least partially (OK only a tiny bit) thankful for surgery and recovery time.  Since getting my gallbladder removed and having to relax I have had a ton of time to read a few really great books.  So lets talk books.

This is the first book I downloaded to my kindle (I LOVE my kindle by the way).  I enjoyed this book's smart collision of vampires, witches, history, magic, and science.  It had me engrossed for days.  It did have some parts that I found myself wanting a little something more and realized I was a bit bored, but it didn't take very long before the author had me reeled back in.  It is a pretty scientific heavy book and it's clear that a lot of research went in to the writing of this book.  I for one really like scientific heavy books so it was right up my alley, however, if you are not into that sort of thing it may not be the book for you.  I recommend this book to anyone looking for a smarter more grown up vampire storyline. 

After the first book I found myself in a witchy sort of mood so I downloaded:

Whisper of a Witch (The Savannah Coven series book #1)
by:  Suza Kates

Conviction of a Witch (The Savannah Coven Series book #2)
by: Suza Kates

These both where Fantastic books at a Fantastic price.  I read both of these books in a matter of days.  I couldn't put them down and found myself reading into the wee hours of the night.  Suza Kates has extraordinary talents and makes you feel like you are right there battling evil with the Sister Witches.  It's easy to relate to the characters and the place, and I loved the blending of suspense, magic, and romance.  Each book is the story of one of he extraordinary women that have found out they are witches and been summoned to Savannah to battle evil and save the world.  Each woman not only battles the demons of evil, but there own personal demons of life.  Combine that with some hunky guys and romance is sure to follow.  This was a fun storyline that takes you away and leaves you looking forward to the next witches story.  I personally can't wait for the next installment, and have found a new author to follow. 

On to the next book, Happy Reading everyone!
