Some have requested a place to suggest other books that we might want to read between the selections for the club. We have readers who finish the chosen books very quickly and might be looking for others to occupy the time between so this is the place.

I just finished a new book today. It was written by a Tart and is a fan fiction of what happens to Erik after Christine. This version is unlike any other I've read - it is a story of not just surviving but thriving and I was very satisfied with the outcome as have been all the others I know who have read it. It is a very satisfying story which took a direction I had never considered and paired it with some ideas which had crossed my mind.
My only criticism was that it is not well edited. This complaint isn't about the story because both the plot and pacing are very good, but there are several spelling and grammatical errors that the editor/publisher should have caught. This is based on Gerry's Phantom, not the Leroux version, and it is easy to picture him in it. I highly recommend it - even some people who are very opposed to POTO fan fictions have liked this book.


Title: Into the Light
Author: Debra Whitehead

Available through the Amazon link in the GALS Boutique.

I highly recommend the following books, all of which I have read recently: -- Oxford New Classics translation of Emile Zola's "Therese Raquin" -- Pandora Drive, by Tim Waggoner (but only if you like books along the lines of Ray Bradbury's "Something Wicked This Way Comes") -- Dance of Death, by Linda Fairstein (a sort of "Phantom of the Ballet" mystery) -- "Angel of Music," by Carrie Hernandez (three novellas in the Leroux Phantom canon)

Wow, nice selection of books. Thanks for the suggestions, Fiona.

I've never read Therese Raquin. Hmmmmm!

I love Ray Bradbury's "Something Wicked This Way Comes." One of my all time favorite books. I will check on Pandora Drive by Tim Waggoner.

I've yet to find a Phantom theme that I don't like.

I hope some of these books are available at my library because I can't afford to buy all of them. :lol:

"Men in Kilts" by Katie MacAlister is a fun "Scottish-themed" contemporary romance read -- lotsa Scottish landscape and "Scotspeak." Made me laugh out loud on a couple of occasions. Good tide-me-over book...

I loved Men in Kilts!! There are so many phrases in there that her heroine uses to describe her feelings when she meets her Scotsman, and as their feelings develop, that sound like they were right out of the words GALS use to describe Gerry. The book is quite funny and I really enjoyed it. I was reading it last year when I met Dr. Em and Football Princess in Las Vegas and I kept reading sections out loud to them because they were just so GALS-like!

It's one of the books I have under the bed in the "to read" pile. Maybe I'll bring it to Vegas.

(Like I'm going to get any reading in. :lol: )

Men in Kilts is A MUST! I absolutely loved that book. Very funny, and ya gotta love those Alpha Male Scot's. :inlove:

Seriously, read it people. It's very funny. My only gripe would be that the ending was pretty boring.

I just finished "Pug Hill" by Alison Pace. It is a quick read and thought it to be very appropriate considering G's new baby, Lolita. Hope you enjoy. :lolita:

My favorite author is Laveryle Spencer but she no longer writes. Does anyone know of another author who writes in her style.? Her books usually have a hearbreaking theme where you think the two lovers will never get together but the end is always happy.

I just finished listening to the audio version of James Patterson's Suzanne's Diary to Nicholas. A very touching story that I can't say too much about without spoiling it. I haven't read any other of Patterson's books but my understanding is this is a very different style than he normally writes. I was very caught up in the story. The way he writes from the mother's point of view was wonderful.

I read the book when it came out a few years ago. It is very different from his usual stuff which is mostly murder mystery. "Suzanne" is more like a Nicholas Sparks book.

First off, obviously, the Diana Gabaldon 'Outlander' series. They're not a quick read, but well worth the time! Next, Wilkie Collins 'The Moonstone' and 'The Woman in White'. They were written in the 1860's, but I loved the plot and pacing, esp. in Moonstone. Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark Hunter series, very sexy! Isabeau

I have a few books to recommend that are all "adult" reading... Sloane Taylor's "Teddi Turns On" (one of four books) Teddi is a travel agent and widow venturing through Germany. Very, very sexy read. It's available at www.triskelionpublishing.net for $5.99. Her next book, Lonnie Heats Up, comes out this winter. I've read part of it and it's even better than the first. It's the "book of the month" for my website in November. Robin Schone's "The Lady's Tutor". (Kensington, paperback) is hot, it's fascinating, and it's Victorian. This will keep you guessing til the very end. It's a great read. It was my "book of the month" on my website last month. Okay, this is just wrong of me but I'm also going to nominate my own book BUT for a good reason. The Viking Stones is available through www.triskelionpublishing.net for $5.99. Now through December, 50% of all royalties are being donated to the Humane Society Calumet Area, which just suffered a devistating fire this week. Thankfully volunteers and apparently bystanders managed to save all 300 animals inside the no-kill shelter when a fire broke out in the laundry room. However, the building suffered some 30-50 thousand dollars in damages. If you don't want to buy a book PLEASE consider donating directly to the humane society at www.hscalumet.org and help them recover. Animal lover and writer, Erika

I just finished up a book by an author I happen to know but hadn't read any of her stuff before now. Her name is Karen Sandler. Based on her website, she seems like she writes romances typically. This one that I read, Unforgettable, is classified as a paranormal romance. Up until Jenni's book, Touch a Dark Wolf, I hadn't read any books in that genre. But, I found this compelling and I enjoyed it. Maybe I've found a new genre perhaps? The story was intriguing. Unfortunately, it's out of print but I found it at my local library and I also found it used on Amazon. Just something fun to add to the "To Read" pile. Which is way better than a "To Do" list any day! :lol:
