Q: What is the best book you’ve read in the last month? What is the worst book you’ve read in the last month?
The best book: Courting Darkness, by Yasmine Galenorn.

Although I have my certain issues with some of her books (like needing a map to know who's who and what happened to who in which previous book), it still has all the elements of a true (adult) urban fantasy book that I love: erotica, paranormal romance, urban fantasy, faerie, shapeshifters and magic. Good stuff.
The worst book: If I find a book that is truly something I can't stand, I can't waste my time on it anymore, because I have too many good ones to get through. Right now its a HUGE struggle for me to get through 'The Iron Queen' by Julie Kagawa.


 I can't say it's the worst book, I'm only a few chapters in, but I just can't get into it. But, I'm going to try. I just haven't cared enough about the characters yet to really associate a lot of meaning to their trials and tribulations. Most of my curiosity about this book stems from the hype around it, and the fact that the author is a bestseller. I'm trying to figure out why, at the moment.
