I've loved books and reading ever since I can remember and my great-grandmother read "Miss Suzy" to me over and over again. My tastes change over time, but tend toward paranormal romance, thrillers and mysteries, science fiction, some fantasy and urban fantasy, YA, and dystopia to name a few.

When in doubt, double-check the reading order

The Gathering  - Kelley Armstrong

I started reading this after I had gotten 27% into The Calling (the second book in the trilogy) and realized I was reading the wrong book. I thought at first that the author had just dropped me right into the action and would give backstory as we went along (or do one of those "48 hours earlier" like they often do on a tv show). I finally decided to check the reading order and description and was glad I did.


The Gathering was very fast-paced, and it follows the first trilogy (Darkest Powers) but doesn't have the same characters. I'm glad I already have the other books because The Gathering just sort of ends, not a major cliffhanger, but you know the author has not told the whole story yet.
