I’m still around three-quarters of the way through Stephenie Meyer’s “Breaking Dawn” (am rather entertained despite the rather jaw-dropping storyline – more on this later), but yesterday was release day for some books I’ve been anticipating…
Elizabeth Peters’ “The Laughter of Dead Kings” (mystery): The long-awaited Vicky Bliss is out! Definitely the next book I’m reading.
Ann Aguirre’s “Wanderlust” (SF romance): Ms Aguirre is running a contest – go buy her book in the next week or so, and enter to win $200 of free books.
“Enchantment Place” (fantasy): An anthology edited by Denise Little – the theme being magical malls where you can buy anything. I’m a sucker for these anthologies, even though I can’t remember the last time I read a short story and thought “must go read that author”. I don’t think I’m a short story kind of person. But yeah, couldn’t resist.
Richelle Mead’s “Storm Born” (urban fantasy): Another release I missed off my August list (I did think it was looking a bit sparse). I like Ms Mead’s Succubus series and this is the first book in a new series. Err… no idea what it’s about, but am willing to give it a go!
Jayne Castle’s “Dark Light” (futuristic romance): The last of the August releases I was planning to get. I’ve done pretty well this month!
ETA: Slightly misleading post, I meant to say the Peters, Aguirre, and Castle books were released this week. The other two are slightly older releases (still August ones though, I think!) that I bought as well. And I also forgot to say that I got them at BooksOnBoard using the promo code New_R3lease – this gets you 25% off the purchase price for new releases August 25th to September 30th, and is valid until this Friday!
