Morrigan's Cross

Standing on the cliffs of 12th century Ireland following the disappearance of his twin, Hoyt Mac Cionaoith is visited by the goddess Morrigan and is charged with the ultimate of tasks: saving his and all future worlds. His enemy - the beautiful but deadly vampire queen Lilith - has had over two thousand years' experience in cruelly killing and changing humans into her own kind - including Hoyt's brother, Cian. Now, Hoyt, a sorcerer, must travel across the world and through time to find and train the five others Morrigan has prophesised will join him as a circle and do battle against Lilith's army of vampires on Samhain in the land of Geall. Fate brings him first to Glenna Ward - a modern witch who can make her own kind of magic. Hoyt and Glenna find themselves drawn together, but is their love strong enough to survive not just the battle ahead but the centuries that separate them...? Morrigan's Cross is part of The Circle Trilogy, Nora Roberts' magical new series of paranormal romances. Six strangers - a sorcerer, a witch, a shape-shifter, scholar, warrior and vampire - find danger, friendship and the chance of love, as they unite in a battle against an ancient evil...

my book list

so far this year i have been listing all the books i have read and putting them onto the list in order...but i am getting lazy now and will be just adding them to the top of the list as i read them...bugger the order bit...there are too many now and it takes forever to move them to the bottom...then when you do it and forget to save the changes and it all gets lost it is damn annoying...hahahahaha..........

so far this year i have read 52 books but some i have re-read making the total read 75!!!! woohoo how cool is that!!!

Charlie St Cloud!

here is what the gorgeous Nes thinks of the book " the life and death of Charlie st Cloud"


A really great read...Ben Sherwood writes in such a way that you get lost in all the mystery and emotion. You feel like you're right there beside Charlie as he goes from day to day. I did really enjoy this's a little out of my usual genre, but I enjoyed it all the same. Now I can't wait for the movie...see how they adapt it to the big screen....which by the way is being filmed now, due for release in 2010...and stars Zac Efron...hehehe!!

so come on girls who else has read it???? and what did you think??

i will be posting the next book this afternoon after i do a random draw for the author and then title!
