52 books in 52 weeks update
Another month has passed, and with fall comes more time for reading ;) This month I've been reading a lot of vampire books. I've started the Anita Blake series by Laurell K. Hamilton and the Night Huntress series by Jeaniene Frost - both are great!
I've also read the 2nd book in The Parasol Protectorate series - Changeless by Gail Carriger, I just love the plot and the characters in this series and can't wait to find out how it continues! The 7th book in the BBD series - Lover Avenged by J.R.Ward, really lived up to my expectation! The 2nd book in the Hollows series - The Good, the Bad, and the Undead by Kim Harrison was a fun read. Really looking forward to read more :)
In between all the vampire books, I've read a exciting thriller - Map of Bones by James Rollins. It's the 2nd book in the Sigma series, but I haven't read any of the other.
So what good books have you read lately..??

She's having visions of a vampire named Gregor who's more powerful than Bones and has ties to her past that even Cat herself didn't know about.

As the battle begins between the vamp who haunts her nightmares and the one who holds her heart, only Cat can break Gregor's hold over her.

101 - Innrømmelser (Tre søstre #33) - Bente Pedersen
102 - Changeless - Gail Carriger
Alexia Tarabotti, the Lady Woolsey, awakens in the wee hours of the mid-afternoon to find her husband, who should be decently asleep like any normal werewolf, yelling at the top of his lungs. Then he disappears - leaving her to deal with a regiment of supernatural soldiers encamped on her doorstep, a plethora of exorcised ghosts, and an angry Queen Victoria. But Alexia is armed with her trusty parasol, the latest fashions, and an arsenal of biting civility. Even when her investigations take her to Scotland, the backwater of ugly waistcoats, she is prepared: upending werewolf pack dynamics as only the soulless can. She might even find time to track down her wayward husband, if she feels like it.
103 - Map of Bones - James Rollins
A mysterious biblical object, nefarious Vatican spies and a deadly centuries-old religious cabal—sound familiar? Sacramento veterinarian Rollins offers more Da Vinci Code–style thrills for the seriously addicted. In this seventh outing, hooded men invade midnight mass at the Cologne Cathedral and slaughter almost everyone present, then break open a gold sarcophagus and steal... the bones of the Three Wise Men. Grayson Pierce, top agent in the Department of Defense's covert Sigma Force, takes a team to Rome, joins up with love-interest Rachel Verona, a carabinieri corps lieutenant, and her Vatican official uncle, Vigot. It seems that the Dragon Court, a medieval alchemical cult-cell that still operates within the Catholic Church, is to blame, and it also seems that the bones of the Magi aren't really bones, but the highly reactive Monatomic gold that the group plans to use to accomplish its ultimate goal—Armegeddon.
104 - Lover Avenged (BBD #7) - J.R. Ward
Rehvenge, a symphath vampire who gets energy from manipulating others' emotions, is recruited by a group who want to displace vampire king Wrath, a gruff, determined vigilante. Rehvenge is also falling hard for vampire nurse Ehlena, who disdains his affections and focuses on caring for her ailing father.
