Speaking of books, I recently joined Goodreads. My first thought after a few minutes was – where has this site been all my life?

I was like a kid in the candy shop. As an avid reader, I had a boatload of fun adding in books, reading recommendations, and visiting the different communities.

Hours later, I had added over 300 books to my “already read” list. Mind you, I only gave them a star rating and only included books read over the last few years (that I could remember). There are a ton more I’ve read over the course of my life, but I resisted the urge to add everything.  After all, I’m supposed to be writing my next novel.

Once Mystic Ink is officially released in January, I’ll create my own author page. Squee! I’m very excited to be part of the Goodreads community. One, because I’m a reader, and two, as a newly published author, I can interact with other readers and writers.

In the spirit of Goodreads, I offer a book recommendation of my own. Actually two books:  Blood Oath and The President’s Vampire by Christopher Farnsworth. Imagine if a vampire worked for the President? And he kicked butt and didn’t care about taking names? These books are action-packed adventures more in the spirit of Jason Bourne than Twilight. Highly entertaining and a lot of fun!

Cable TV executives pay attention. These books would make a great series! Hint, hint!

I hope to see you on Goodreads soon!

How many of you are members? And if you are, let’s be friends!

  1. I just joined GOODREADS too, Casey. I am having a little trouble negotiating my way around over there–it’s a bit overwhleming. But I love the idea of interacting with other readers and authors. And my love of books will only fuel me to spend more time there.

    Thanks for the book recommendations!

  2. Hi Rose. I’m still muddling my way through Goodreads too. I see authors sending events and blogging and I have yet to figure out how to do it. Maybe when I make my page it will become clearer! I hope! 🙂

  3. I’m a member, but haven’t got the hang of it yet. Plus, I get a lot of creepy requests from guys. 🙂 Once my book comes out I will step it though.

  4. I’m way behind on my goodreads account. Soon, I’ll have to add my reccomendations. Until then, I’ll enjoy sorting through your plethora of suggestions, Casey. 🙂

  5. I just joined Goodreads as well – thought I did it a year ago, but apparently not. I don’t participate much. The site is not as user-friendly as I’d like. Nice recs, btw!

    1. Thanks! I hope everyone who reads the books enjoys them. They were so much fun! I hope to learn to use Goodreads because I see others doing all this cool stuff! I will look for you there!

  6. Wait a minute. Is my email address open to the world? How does this work? Was I supposed to ask that question first, before I joined?

    1. Hi Meggan! I hope you enjoy them as much as I did. It’s not often that I completely drop everything to read a book in one sitting!
