Welcome to Day Three of Book Pimps - Who They Are and Why We Love Them! I'm really enjoying sharing my Book Pimps with the world. They've had such a huge impact on my reading life that I have to wonder -- how did I function before blogging/tweeting? With access to so many blogs and reading recommendations, I'll never want have to figure out what to read next. I simply contact a Book Pimp and BOOM.. I'll have a title tweeted to me in less than 5 minutes. I'm and addict and they have what I need. Don't judge me!ROFL
Today I have the great pleasure of introducing you to the dynamic duo, the sisters of Smokin' Hot Books! I have to say, it was K.C.'s avi on Twitter that first caught my attention. I thought it was sooooo super cute! Then I went to the Smokin' Hot website and Lost. My. Mind. These ladies are just awesome with the wide range of books that they review and pimp. Well I'll let them do the talking....
Tell us a little about yourselves:
We here at Smokinhotbooks have one rule, the smut better be steamin', the action better make us say "Whoa" (in a Keanu Reeves accent) and every book that we read has to leave an imprint in the design of the hoaky poem "Footprints".
Who are your top 3 Book Pimps and what do they pimp to you?
Smexybooks: She feeds my book addiction and hand to god I spend at least an extra $20-$50 a month on books because of her reviews. Smexybooks was one of the first blogs I came across when K-Khan and I (KC) started blogging.
Fiction Vixen: We are twins separated at birth (probably) - she has a wonderful blog and she wows me with her graphic skillz and reviews that make me chuckle.
EroticRomReader: Janna's blog feeds my smuttier side. She knows how to start my Monday off with her "Smutty Hot Couple" then she makes me squirt myself with h2o with her steamy excerpts she posts on her current read. What I like most about Janna's blog is her insight on m/m books. I don't even need to shop around on Goodreads or Amazon.
Name the top three books that were Pimped to you that you absolutely loved and why:
I have to say that we definitely succumb to peer pressure, and haven't been let down once! Three books that were pimped out to us that we can't stop raving about,
1. The Chess Putnam series by Stacia Kane - This is probably one of the most unique story lines that I would have never imagined myself reading, all due to the fact that the heroine is an addict. I know, I'm such a square, but it's true! Oh how wrong I was to have protested. This series is one of the best of 2010. It has incredible action, raw characters and an ability to make you feel as if you've lived out the sequences of the book. Plus Terrible is like sex on a stick. Check out review here.
2. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins - First off, ever since the mania that is the Twihards I've been a bit reluctant to pick up a young adult book. Enter the Hunger Games. A fricken awesome, post-apocalyptic series that tells the tale of how young woman can inspire others to rise up against the system and give their lives for a chance at freedom. A modern day Orwellian adventure of 1984 meets Survivor. Check our review here.
3. Lord of White Hell by Ginn Hale - We always have to throw in manlove - Katiebabs pimped this series out to me and all I can say is woo and hoo. This series is like an adult version of Harry Potter but with two dudes that fall in love. One of my favorite new series, hell even Josh Lanyon likes it. Check our review here.
Funny that Smokin' Hot's last book was on manlove. On Tuesday's post, Marq of Love to Read for Fun talked about Black Wade a manlove graphic novel that KC recommended. I just had to share the cover art with you so you. I need to add this to my *private* collection soon! Check out KC's review here.
Even as I wrote this post this evening, K.C. was on Twitter talking about another book series with Bells & SmexyBooks. It was 10:10 p.m and yes she was talking about the next book she needed to buy. Here's my Tweet:
ME: @smexybooks @smokinhotbooks @bellie7 ok DANG... y'all be Pimpin at night TOO??? ::::pullin out my CC::::::
KC: @DrensBspot the pimpin is 24/7 it never stops;)
Folks, I don't make this stuff up! As you can see, Smokin' Hot Books is hands down a.....
