StS shipping / TBR

First of all, some exciting news - it looks like Slave to Sensation is already shipping from Barnes and Noble! :)

Second, Candace Havens has just put up an interview she did with me, so swing by and check that out.

Okay, onto the post I was actually going to make today. I thought we'd talk about the next 5 books that (we think) we're going to read. Here's my list:

1. Dark Lover - J R Ward: Yes, I know. I'm like the only person in the blogsphere that hasn't read this yet, but it's sitting on a shelf behind me right this second. The good thing about being late to the party is, if I really like this book, I can go out and get books 2&3 straight away.

2/3: Throne of Jade/Black Powder War - Naomi Novik: After my up till 3am reading jag with the first book in this series, I'm not starting these two until I have a whole day to read.

4. Danse Macabre - Laurell K Hamilton: Has any book been more talked about?! But I've managed to avoid spoilers thus far and am looking forward to going back into Anita's world.

5. Doppelganger - Marie Brennan: This is an author I'd never heard of but which my local independent bookseller told me I'd like (and basically since this bookseller can read my mind and is the one responsible for my addiction to, among others, J D Robb, I buy whatever she recommends).

What's next on your list?

Yay! Your interview's up on my place Friday--good choice, because my stats spike on Friday for some reason that I've yet to discover.

I've read Doppelganger--there's a sequel too. I liked the concept, but Brennan's voice didn't really click for me.

I'm reading Joseph Nassise's Heretic and up next is either Sarah Douglass's Hades' Daughter or Jon Courtenay Grimwood's Effendi.

I have yet to read Dark Lover, too. Still, like you, it's sitting on the shelf behind me. I'm actually hoping to get to that one before I get my next shipment from Amazon, which will include, among other things, Slave to Sensation.

I've been in a "not really interested in paranormals" mode lately, and I want to force myself back to them before I get StS so I can read it right away!

More immediately though, I have Jill Shalvis's Just Try Me...which hopefully I'll get to today!

Milady - I like stat spikes ;) Doppelganger looks interesting so I hope it works for me. I could do with finding some new authors to follow.

Emma - as my birthday buddy, you MUST get back into the PNR mood, it's your solemn duty! :)

Yvonne - yep. Totally. She's like a mind reader and knows all my weaknesses.
