Keepers and Rereads

One of the things I'm doing over the holidays is rearranging my bookshelves  - and it got me to thinking about the books that are permanent fixtures on those shelves, the keepers and rereads that I return to again and again. 

These are my comfort reads, even though the story within the pages isn't always gentle or comfortable! Do you reread? If so, what are the books you return to over and over again? Any idea of your oldest keeper book? ❤️

Quiet in Her Bones - Out February 2021

 


*Preorder here.

*Add it on Goodreads.

In this gripping thriller set in New Zealand, New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh takes you into the twisted world of an exclusive cul-de-sac located on the edge of a sprawling forest.

My mother vanished ten years ago.
So did a quarter of a million dollars in cash.
Thief. Bitch. Criminal.
Now, she’s back.
Her bones clothed in scarlet silk.

When socialite Nina Rai disappeared without a trace, everyone wrote it off as another trophy wife tired of her wealthy husband. But now her bones have turned up in the shadowed green of the forest that surrounds her elite neighborhood, a haven of privilege and secrets that’s housed the same influential families for decades.

The rich live here, along with those whose job it is to make their lives easier. And somebody knows what happened to Nina one rainy night ten years ago. Her son Aarav heard a chilling scream that night, and he’s determined to uncover the ugly truth that lives beneath the moneyed elegance…but no one is ready for the murderous secrets about to crawl out of the dark.

Even the dead aren’t allowed to break the rules in this cul-de-sac.

Audiobook Narrator Chat


AudioFile held a fun discussion last week with four narrators - including Angela Dawe, who narrates the Psy-Changeling series. Here's the link if you'd like to listen/watch!

Angela does a reading from Alpha Night beginning about 4.25, and then the narrators discuss accents. I'm partway through listening to this and it's fascinating to hear all their different approaches.

Friday Book Club

Hello my lovely readers. Today, I'd like to host a special Friday Book Club, focusing on your favorite reads by Black authors. Here are three recent ones of mine to start us off!

And if you haven't yet tried any of the authors mentioned in this thread (or in the comments), please do give them a go - there are some amazing stories out there that don't always get the spotlight. 

Rafe by Rebekah Weatherspoon (the author describes this is as a "Buff Male Nanny" book and it definitely is!)

Real Men Knit by Kwana Jackson (Four brothers inherit their mother's knitting shop and the resulting story is both about family, and about falling in love. I loved this book so much I gave it a publicity quote).

The A.I. Who Loved Me by Alyssa Cole (this is an awesome SF romance that asks the question...what if the hot guy next door is actually the A.I. next door? I listened to this in audio and it's a fantastic production, but the ebook is now also out).

I could keep going, but I'll hand it over to you now! Fill the thread with recs for your faves! πŸ’•

Cover Love: Archangel's Sun

Look at this utterly beautiful cover designed by the amazing Patrick Knowles. I ADORE it!!



Archangel's Sun
November 2020

A horrifying secret rises in the aftermath of an archangelic war in New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh’s deadly and beautiful Guild Hunter world…

The Archangel of Death and the Archangel of Disease may be gone but their legacy of evil lives on—especially in Africa, where the shambling, rotting creatures called the reborn have gained a glimmer of vicious intelligence.

It is up to Titus, archangel of this vast continent, to stop the reborn from spreading across the world. Titus can’t do it alone, but of the surviving powerful angels and archangels, large numbers are wounded, while the rest are fighting a surge of murderous vampires.

There is no one left…but the Hummingbird. Old, powerful, her mind long a broken kaleidoscope. Now, she must stand at Titus’s side against a tide of death upon a discovery more chilling than any other. For the Archangel of Disease has left them one last terrible gift…
