Books I'm looking forward to...

Here's a very partial list of book I'm looking forward to. Of course, I must first finish writing my own book (the cave beckons) and catch up with the tbr ;-)

Demon Forged - Meljean Brook - releases October 2009 (How cool is that cover?!)

Ghostland - Jory Strong (I was tempted to steal this ARC for myself in the
ARC contest. The concept sounds very intriguing). - releases April 2009

Hunting Ground -Patricia Briggs - releases August 2009 (I just love her writing, her world, everything).

What are some of the books you're waiting for?

p.s. I've read Magic Strikes by Ilona Andrews and it is spectacular. Post about that later this week!

Nalini you tease *g*! What is the cave beckons going to be about?

Leigh Ann Baird said...

Lover Avenged by JR Ward (I'm DYING for this release!)

Finger Lickin' Fifteen by Janet Evanovich (Her books are pure entertainment for me.)

Dead and Gone from Charlaine Harris (I think I've read every book she's written!)

Destined for an early grave by Jeaniene Frost

Prey by Rachel Vincent

Kim Harrison has a YA coming out and I want to read it.

Gosh, there are many, many more. I spend a small fortune on books every month. Luckily I can read fast and still comprehend the story. I won a copy of Magic Strikes but haven't received it yet. I love how Magic Burns ended. It was awesome. Sorry for the rambling...

Jory Strong said...

Thanks Nalini! As much as I'd love for you to read Ghostland, please, please stay in your writer's cave and finish Angel's Kiss!

I'm counting down the days until Magic Strikes. Forget writing on March 31! I will gobble up Curse the Dawn (Karen Chance) and White Star (Elizabeth Vaughn) on April 7, when they release. The Patricia Briggs' book is too far out for me to let myself think about. I love her writing. She's terrific.

Everything Jory Strong said :)

And add :
Shana Abe "Treasure Keeper",
Alyssa Day "Atlantis Unleashed",
JR Ward "Lover Avenged"
Nora Roberts "Vision in White"
Christine Feehan "Burning Wild"
Lisa Kleypas "Smooth Talking Stranger" and
Rachel Gibson "Love and other Disasters".

I actually keep a Book Calendar on Google of the books I'm looking forward to. As soon as they're posted, I update... anal, but it gives me something to look forward to (lol).

I've been looking forward to the conclusion of C.L. Wilson's series, Queen of Songs and Souls. It was delayed however so I'll have to wait a little longer. I don't mind the delay if it means a better story.

Lexie said...

hmm...let's see...White Star (by Elizabeth Vaughan), Storm Glass (Maria V. Snyder), Betraying Season (Melissa Doyle), Blue Moon (Alyson Noel), and so many others I Can't think of them XD I know I want Brandon Sanderson's new novel Warbreaker (I believe that is the title) pretty badly though as well.

Karen W. said...

I'm anxious for the same books you are, and I'm totally jealous you got to read the Ilona Andrews book already. :)

Courtney said...

JR Ward's newest, definitely Ghostland (I'm so exited that Berkley snapped up Jory! They're so smart for recognizing her genius), Branded by Fire (duh), Guardian by Angela Knight, and a few others that I can't think of at the moment.

I have a small book budget, which is depressing if I keep track of all the books I would love to buy. So I just track the stars of my autobuy list like Nalini and JRW.
