And SINCE it’s still my birthday, I thought I’d celebrate with TWO “Reader Favorites” lists today. It’s a party up in here!!! :D And now it’s Laura’s turn!!

Laura has been with us since 2013!!! Now… a little more about Laura:

  • She’s a fellow peanut gallery-er (she has her favorites too, and doesn’t mind pelting us with peanuts if we haven’t read em yet).

“u all owe me a book now! I am totally adding a sling shot with the peanuts!!”

  • She’s from Glasgow Scotland!!!

“I’m too Scottish I will bruise like a peach!” LOL!! I know how you feel (But it’s the Irish in me that is the bruiser). ;)

  • She says FECK!!!!!

“Oh feck…” <— LOL!!! :P You guys! It’s Dani!!!

  • She tells us about her yummy strange sounding Scottish food:

“ it’s chippy chips u know real chips cheese then some bisto gravy it’s amazing yummy!!… we have BLT it’s just bacon lettuce and tomatoes like urs rights? A bacons butty though is just a roll bap (sort of like a burger bun but not?) usually with tomato sauce or brown sauce ooooo do u guys have brown sauce??

Amy a few rolls and bacon will seriously pile the pounds on!!! On the subject of no clue about food what the heck is a corn dog??

…a fritter is just a big bit of potato dipped in batter and deep fried everything in a chippy here is deep fried like deep fried pizza,black pudding, haggis, steak pie and of course Mars bars but that’s just ick!!!… I’m not a fan ok chocolate (don’t kill me) I’m more a savoury girl it’s bad!!!

Everytime I’m reading a book and it’s based in America and they mention food I don’t know I’m all over Google but couldn’t grasp the hole corn dog thing I can’t think of any other things I wondered about but u know in Scotland we have stuff that’s kinda weird even to English people like square sausage and potato scones and u know irn bru !!!”

LOL!!!! Gah I LOVE her! You guys??!!! Let’s GO TO SCOTLAND!!!!! :D Wanna? But in the meantime, let’s check out her book favorites!

“Hey maryse it’s me kilt wearing Laura!! (I haven’t actually wore a kilt in my life btw) so I thought I would give u my top 10 if u want it lol it’s so hard!!!”

  1. Undeniable by Madeline Sheehan – it was my first biker book and it was just so real and raw and messed up that I just love it so much
  2. Fearless by Lauren gilley- I just read it and it’s now my second favourite biker book lol I love them long so the 800 pages was the best and I just loved the taboo her mum Maggie everything
  3. Dead Witch Walking (The Hollows Book 1) <— The whole Rachel Morgan series by Kim Harrison – it has everything the paranormal the angst the hate him love him vibe and the slow burn and the cheekiness!! (sidenote from Maryse: When she finished this series she let us know, saying: “ I’ve just finished the Rachel Morgan series by Kim Harrison and in so depressed that it’s finished I have the day all 13 books are amazing I loved everything it a whole 5*+ for me omg what the hell am I going to do I can’t believe it’s ended!!!!! And I have missed so much so now there is about a million books on me tbr and none of them will compare to Rachel none I tell u!!!!!“)
  4. Love Me With Lies Series by tarryn fisher – I loves the way it panned out over their whole lives and how in between loving each other they settled with other people I actually like dirty red the best as its from Leah’s pov and she always kind of knows she the other woman
  5. Craving Resurrection (The Aces Book 4) by Nicole jaquelyn- I loved this series but this one was just very raw and it’s sort of coming of age they meet very young and then the bad happens!!
  6. The Rosie Project by Graeme simsion – I loved dons way of thinking and it broke my heart when people were making fun of him and he is totally funny haha not weird the things he comes out with – correct! Greetings!
  7. Kristen Ashley just her not a single book cause I just can’t pick I’ve read them all and I just love everything I fell in love with every alpha male in her books she so rocks!
  8. Underestimated: Book One by jettie woodruff – mainly because it was the first book in the ‘oh sh*t’ category enough said
  9. Immortals After Dark Series <— The whole IAD series kresley Cole – again I couldn’t pick u ask to much! I love the way they all are and I love nucking futs nix I want her book bad
  10. Black Dagger Brotherhood <— And finally 10. It has to be BDB they are all just my first loves from book 1 when we met them all I can’t pick I would be screwed if I had to pick on real life I would be a total BDB groupie JR ward I love u lol
  11. So that’s the list but following on from that I have to mention The Neighbor from Hell Collection by RL Mathewson, Gena Showalter’s LOTU and Nalini Singh: The Psy-Changeling Series cause they are amazing also!
“Maryse you ask to much! Lol that’s the list then enjoy!”
LOL!!!! :P Sorry friend. ;) It’s always fun to put y’all on the spot like that. This way we’re sure to get the best of the best. ;)

I totally agree with Craving Resurrection!!!! Ugh, that book about killed me. I was looking at my IPad thinking NO WAY!!! Of course Undeniable OMG!!!

I’m on a mc romance kick right now. It’s all I’ve read for the past 10 days lol. I really need to stop my “kicks” they’re getting expensive

bev August 15, 2015 at 9:12 PM

Laura!!!!!!! Where have you been? Looking at this list I didn’t realize you liked the hurt so much. o_O
*jumps up and down*
I want to go to Scotland. I want to eat chippy chips and bacon butty. I’d totally eat a deep fried Mars Bar.
*hangs head in shame*
P.S. to Maryse. If you need a Happy Break—–GILMORE GIRLS. Gilmore Girls make happy girls for happy birthdays. They also have some bite to them to. You could totally add Lorelai & Rory Gilmore to the favorite heroine list. You know Melissa McCarthy plays Lorelai’s best friend? Did I tell you how pretty your hair is?

Linda August 15, 2015 at 9:32 PM

Laura love your list!!! Underestimated is also one of my favorites and the sequel Underestimated Too and An Underestimated Christmas! Great series!! Fearless and its sequel Price of Angels amazing reads. And just a side note my mother in law was born and raised in Glasgow went into the Army at 18 met my father in law an Australian and has lived in Queensland, Australia ever since. She is without a doubt the cheekiest 92 year old I’ve ever met!!!

Linda August 15, 2015 at 9:37 PM

Happy happy birthday Maryse!!! Hope it’s been a perfect day!! Xoxo

Cheryl August 15, 2015 at 9:42 PM

Laura, love your list because it has given me more books to put on my tbr. #1, I just put on my tbr list,after several here were recommending it. I’ve only read 4, 7- a couple of her books, and a couple of the Neighbor from Hell series. I would love to visit Scotland one day!! :)

Diane M August 15, 2015 at 9:53 PM

Lol Bev! I want a bacon butty too!! Love me with Lies is just one of the best, I loved Dirty red too, had one of my fave moments of the entire trilogy and it was genius to see it through Leah’s POV

Jean August 15, 2015 at 10:02 PM

Great list Laura! I haven’t read 2, 3, 5 and 8… adding them to my TBR!

Tessa August 15, 2015 at 10:58 PM

Laura’s list! Yeah, though more money to spend, huh? I loved Craving Constellations, and Craving Ressurection is better, awesome. Just looked and I guess I have Underestimated and never read it. So, it’s going in my TBR now list. :) Love quite a few here, IAD, NFH and the few Psy Changlings I’ve read so far.

However! It killed me when the Hollows series ended too! OMG, so good and so insane. So much emotional growth and still it had pixies. (Love Jenks!) Also, I was rooting for whom she ended up with in the end. That was definitely no guarantee.

Fabi August 15, 2015 at 11:23 PM

Omg, this is a list from heaven. I can tell from the ones on the list I’ve read that I will LOVE the ones I haven’t. *gets busy adding to favorites list*

Patricia August 16, 2015 at 12:47 AM

I’m reading Fearless right now (thank you Maryse!) and it’s difficult to put down. I love Mercy and Ava together! Their chemistry is palpable! It’s up there with Nine Minutes.

Laura August 16, 2015 at 2:12 AM

bev August 16, 2015 at 3:46 AM

Oh, no fun. But I’m sure your wee lass came through it like a champ! (“wee lass”, Scottish or Irish?)
I didn’t know you and Tessa read Singh, how’d I miss that?
Rock Chicks! I always laugh when the,”do you dance?”question comes up.

Tessa August 16, 2015 at 9:05 AM

Psy/Changeling is paranormal, right? *grins*

bev August 16, 2015 at 9:26 AM

Lol. I guess we just don’t talk about them. Haven’t read the newest one yet. Need to play catch up (always) with the angel one.
Today just started Good Time Bad Boy.

MichelleS August 16, 2015 at 9:56 AM

I haven’t read 3 – 5 – 8, but I TOTALLY agree on the res of your picks. Bikers and super hot paranormal alpha guys? A girl after my own heart.

Laura August 16, 2015 at 11:31 AM

Amy August 17, 2015 at 1:32 PM

Laura!!! My five-o’clock-confirming friend!! That’s awful about the CPox. :( Hopefully we’ll see you around here a little more now though!

Soooo, I’ve read 1, 4, one from 9 and the first few from 10. Considering you are someone who can match my crazy, I’m going to have to add your books to my TBR list. ;)

Leslee August 18, 2015 at 2:58 PM

On Paper by Shae Scott is a beautifully written story that will have you laughing, crying, throwing your kindle and then rushing across the room to pick it back up. This is a definite must read!
