Jen & I both posted that we like them!

Of course, I read the "50 Shades of Grey" series. I've been reading online that they are expecting some babies to come from that series in 9 months or so!

I love the author Kristen Hannah. I just ordered another of her books on amazon. It's called "Things We Do for Love." So that will be my next out of reality adventure. I like Emily Giffin's books too. Pretty much I like anything that is entertaining and an easy read with at least a little love story in it.

I don't have a Nook or Kindle...thinking of buying DH an iPad for his bday in Nov so may be I can steal it to read on it! Haha!

What do you girls read? Any author or book suggestions?

If you like 50 shades level of 'trashy', I suggest the Rough Rider series by Lorelei James, and her Blacktop Cowboy Series as well. Cat Johnson does some pretty good ones as well, so does Bella Andre.

Historical romance wise, I love Stephanie Laurens, Tracy Anne Warren, Johanna Lindsey.

Modern, I go for Nora Roberts, Sherryl Woods, Debbie Macomber, and Stephanie Bond.


I have a Kindle 2, Kindle 3, Kindle Fire, Ipad, Iphone, Nook Color, and Nook tablet. Needless to say, I rarely buy a 'paper' book anymore. I much prefer ebooks.

I love a good trashy romance novel...Nora Roberts is definitely one of my favorites.

I have yet to read the "Grey" series...probably not the best thing for a lady on pelvic rest to read Hopefully I can read those after these babies arrive and DH and I can get our groove back

I loved the Fifty Shades of Grey! And I love a good trashy romance novel.

I have been reading Lara Adrian recently.

Another great series very similar to 50 Shades of Grey is the Crossfire Series by Sylvia Day. Bared to You is the first book in the series and is equally as hot and steamy as the 50 Shades Series. If you're looking for other great 2012 books in this genre you should check out TheBestBooksOf.com. Their list of The Best Romance Novels of 2012 is really great!

Please let me know if you find anything worth reading.

Cheers

I LOVED the first book! I have the 2nd in the series but have yet to read it.

If you have a kindle or nook - there's a page on FB you can like called "What to read after 50 Shades of grey" and they usually post about FREE (or close to free) novels that are similar to to 50 shades.

I just wanted to add, even if you don't have an ereader I know at least the Kindle has free apps for your phone as well as a desktop application. Those free books are worth taking advantage of as long as you can stand reading on your computer or phone screen. I have the Motorola Admiral which has a slightly smaller than average screen but I haven't had any trouble reading on it.

I think I love the series so much because it was orginally written as a Twilight Fan fiction with the original Twilight main characters as the characters. The author then changed the names and had it published NOW I CAN GET MY VAMPIRE LOVE STORY again SO SO SO SO SO SO READY FOR THE MOVIE TO COME OUT!!
