Must Haves

Thanks for all the book recs everyone - I have a feeling that's a thread I'll keep coming back to pick up more reads :)

How about we talk about future releases today?

Here's another book I'm adding to my "can't wait" list - the new Ghost Hunter book! Comes out August 26!

I love this series.

The blurb:
Everything is different underground. Just ask the residents of Harmony, a futuristic world where alien catacombs can lead you astray—and where psychic senses spark out-of-this-world passion...

Reporter Sierra McIntyre's stories on Crystal City's ghost hunters—and their mysterious guild—have earned her tabloid a bit of respect. And they've allowed her to clothe her dust bunny companion Elvis in rock-and-roll style. It helps that she has mega-rez intuition to fall back on...

Especially when she interviews Ghost Hunter Guild Boss John Fontana about the disappearances of retired, homeless hunters. She doesn't want to trust the physically and psychically powerful man, but her senses—and Elvis—give her the green light. To uncover the conspiracy within his own organization, Fontana proposes...marriage. And though it's purely a business arrangement, there is nothing pure about the attraction that sizzles between them...

And just for fun, a few more books I'm wanting to get my paws on (no pun intended *g*).

And that's just for starters! I've also got a couple of fabulous ARCs that I'll be chatting about later. But now, tell me - what's on your "must have" list? :)


Gretchen Schneider said...

Besides the ones you listed and your own books, I am also waiting for Acheron by Sherrilyn Kenyon, Faefever by Karen Marie Moning, Swallowing Darkness by Laurell K. Hamilton, and Turn Coat by Jim Butcher.

Nalini Singh said...

Gretchen - I can't believe I forgot to list Swallowing Darkness! I'm addicted to that series.

Also waiting for Archeron - that's going to be amazing. I can't wait to see how SK does it!

azteclady said...

The J.D. Robb; Suzanne Brockmann's Into the Fire; Ann Aguirre's Wanderlust would be if I hadn't scored an ARC :glee: Same for Lauren Dane's Reading Between the Lines

I know there are more, but I'm blanking right now :-(

I'm waiting for:
Swallowing Darkness by Laurell K. Hamilton
Turn Coat by Jim Butcher
Hands of Flame by CE Murphy
Delicious by Sherry Thomas
The Wild Road by Marjorie Lui
Heart Fate by Robin Owens
King of Sword and Sky by CL Wilson

Wait, there's one missing. Hostage to Pleasure by Nalini Singh

Nalini Singh said...

Gail you have excellent taste *g*

I'm also waiting for the CL Wilson - and don't those books have amazing covers?!

Bridget Locke said...

Well, Mine to Possess is a given. :)

Acheron by Sherrilyn Kenyon
The Wild Road by Marjorie M. Liu
The Bleeding Dusk by Colleen Gleason
Midnight Daughter by Karen Chance
Kiss of a Demon King by Kresley Cole
Veil of Midnight by Lara Adrian
Seduce Me At Sunrise by Lisa Kleypas

Bridget Locke said...

Oh & the Suzanne Brockmann, the JD Robb, the Ann Aguirre and many, many more. :)

azteclady said...

Well, of course I'm waiting for Hostage to Pleasure *cue whispered duh! here* but I thought it was a list of books to recommend to Nalini. I can't very well recommend her own book to her, can I?


Yes, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Christine said...

Hi Nalini!
I literally just caught up on Patricia Briggs' Mercy Thompson series--and the "Alpha and Omega" short in the On the Prowl anthology, so I am sooooo ready for Cry Wolf. I can't wait to read more about Anna and Charles. I LOVE this world... and I love Mercy! I think I'm going to love Anna just as much.

There are also a few upcoming YA releases that I've been waiting for:
1. Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer. 8/08
2. Brisingr by Christopher Paolini. 9/08
3. InkDeath by Cornelia Funke. 10/08

It seems my list gets smaller and smaller each year, but there are still some books that I will buying the second they hit the shelves. Excluding your upcoming book and anthology, there is:
Patricia Briggs-Cry WOlf
C.T. Adams and Cathy Clamp - Tough of Darkness
S.L. Viehl - Omega Games
Jeanne C. Stein - Legacy (#4 in series)
Karen Chance - Midnight's Daughter
Lora Leigh - Mercury's War
Jim Butcher - Backup (Dresden novelette from Thomas' POV)
and some great anthologies coming up are
"Blood Lite" with Butcher and Charlaine Harris; and "Wolfsbane and Mistletoe" with Carrie Vaughn (love her werewolf Kitty series), Briggs and Harris.
And, although it is along way off, I can't wait for the final book in Lois McMaster BUjold's fantasy series, The Sharing Knife: Horizon. Although series is perhaps the wrong word. It is more like a really big book, broken into four parts with well placed breaks.

Bridget Locke said...

Jackie M. Rocks. 99% of the books she listed are the ones I'm looking forward to. I was just listing them off the top of my head. :)

Shari C said...
