On the 11th day of Christmas…

…here are eleven books I’m looking forward to ~ in no particular order

1. Bone Crossed & Hunting Ground – Patricia Briggs (Okay, I know that’s two books, but shhhh)


2. Propromises-in-deathmises In Death & Kindred in Death – JD Robb (Um…see above *grin*)

3. Demon Dawn – Meljean Brook

4. Duplicate Effort – Kristine Kathryn Rusch


5. The Shadow Queen – Anne Bishop

6. The Vampire’s Bride – Gena Showalter


7. Magic Strikes – Ilona Andrews


8. Blood Sins – Kay Hooper


9. Bengal’s Heart – Lora Leigh

10.Trunning-hotucker’s Claim – Sarah McCarty

11. Running Hot – Jayne Ann Krentz

You know what I’ve just realized? Every single book on that list is part of a series. I do however, quite often pick up debut authors or authors I haven’t yet read if the blurb/concept catches my interest. Judith James debut Broken Wing and Victoria Dahl’s contemporary debut Talk Me Down are both on my tbr list because of that very reason.

Now it’s your turn – what books are you looking forward to? You can list one, two or even eleven!vampires-bride2

    1, 2 and 9 are already on my Amazon Wish List, along with yours and quite a few others that don’t have anything out until 2009. Granted it’s not like I don’t have unread books on my bookshelf, but they are books that have been on there for a year or more, and clearly I’m not interested…lol

    My 17 y/o got me into the Patricia Briggs books. I tend to go for the vamps, and she’s into witches and wolves. We share Patricia Briggs, Keri Arthur and Sherrilyn Kenyon books. She tried to get me to read the Twilight series…I couldn’t do it. My 12 y/o is now reading the series. I tried to get her into Christine Feehan’s vampire series, but she said the vamps were too arrogant and she would rather stake them.

    I just read my first Gena Showalter book last week, ‘The Darkest Night’. Loved it. I am waiting for ‘Awaken Me Darkly’ to arrive.

    At Graves End…. J Frost
    Vampire Bride…. G Showalter
    Demon Dawn….Meljean Brook
    Croushing Vampire Hidden Fang… Katie Maclister
    The next In Death… JD RObb
    The next (Demon Slayer)… Angie Fox
    The next Dark Hunter/Were Hunter/Dream Hunter… S.Kenyon

    Darn that is all I can think of at the moment…

    Happy Holidays

    There are so many books that I desperately want, but sadly, don’t have the funds at the moment to buy them ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I swear if I won the lottery I’d be broke again in a matter of days from buying all the books on my wish list)

    December 17, 2008 at 6:43 am

    1 & 2 Would be awesome but I’m a book junkie so any book would be cool to win.

  6. December 17, 2008 at 6:53 am

    This sounds like a great book; another one for the tbr pile!

  7. December 17, 2008 at 6:53 am

    Oh, Nalini, very good question. I keep a notebook by my computer with books I want to buy. Not always remembering exactly why I want them Yvonne scratches head but usually I’ve seen them recommended on a blog or cruised through something on Amazon or elsewhere. On the list at the moment:

    Nora Roberts — The Pagan Stone (cos I can’t wait to see what happens!)
    Susan Wiggs — Just Breathe
    Lisa Kleyplas — Sugar Daddy and Blue Eyed Devil (from your blog I believe, Nalini)
    Barbara Bretton — Casting Spells
    Pamela Morsi — Simple Jess (because I have NEVER been able to find a copy of this book and I’ve heard so much about it)
    Merline Lovelace — The Hello Girl (she ‘spoke’ about it during the eHarlequin Open House Desire authors chat and the concept really attracted me.)
    Kay Hooper — Blood Sins (I heart Kay Hooper’s work in a major way)

    Chanel – Silent on the Moor is on my list, too! How could I forget. I really enjoy Deanna Raybourn’s style.

    Yvonne – you MUST track down a copy of Simple Jess. It’s an amazing, amazing book.

    December 17, 2008 at 8:13 am

    Lemme see… Okay, I’ll just be very general (otherwise this could be looooooooooooooooooooooooooooonnnnnnnngggggggggg)

    Suzanne Brockmann’s Dark of Night at the end of January is the one I’m salivating over right now (as soon as that one is in the bag, so to speak, I’ll start on a number of them–the JD Robbs for sure).

    Between now and then I have a few books I’ve promised to review, and I have Nora Robert’s Blood Brothers trilogy waiting for me (those and Broken Wing are my rewards for hard work :grin:)

    Then there are a few books coming out next year of which I’ve been lucky enough to get ARCs. I’m still looking forward their releases, because I want to see these authors succeed with them–I want them to have long and successful careers… so I have lots of books to look forward to! ๐Ÿ˜€

    Yeah, I’m selfish that way ๐Ÿ˜‰

  18. December 17, 2008 at 8:16 am

    Yvonne, have you read Pamela Morsi’s Last Dance at Jitterbug Lounge and Bitsy’s Bait & BBQ? I was rivetted!

    Quite a list! Erm… I’m looking forward to “What I Did For Love” :X Although for some reason I’m not super excited about it. Also excited for YOUR books, Nalini! Love the covers! Er… Anya Bast’s next (two?) Elemental Witches books… Lauren Dane and Megan Hart’s books….

    Actually, I have no idea what books are coming out soon. Tried looking on amazon a few days ago and didn’t get much. Also – I think Lori Foster has another book coming out? ๐Ÿ˜›

  23. 23 Maered
    December 17, 2008 at 9:04 am

    Ohhh, that’s a good list Nalini! I too am looking forward to Silent on the Moor. I only discovered Deanna Raybourn’s books this month and have devoured them ๐Ÿ™‚ Hmmm, definitely books 1 (a+b), 2 (a+b), 5 and 9, although…is Bengal’s Heart the next in the series? I thought Coyote’s Mate was? Have I been trying to find the wrong title on the library catalogue?

    I’m also looking forward to Lover Avenged (JR Ward), as I love Rhev ๐Ÿ™‚ And Fragile Eternity by Melissa Marr! And…how could I forget…Branded by Fire. I have to admit to not really liking kick-a*s heroines (I so can’t relate to them it isn’t funny), but I like Mercy and have completely faith in you Nalini!

    Oh, almost forgot three (my list is insane!): A Plague of Poison (Maureen Ash) – a Templar Knight suspense; Smooth Talking Stranger (Lisa Kleypas) and House War (Michelle West) – I can’t wait to see the fireworks between Jewel and Avendar ๐Ÿ™‚ And no, I’m not talking about romantic fireworks ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m looking forward to the Warlord’s Daughter by Susan Grant, and I just finished reading my first Gena Showalter book, the Darkest Night, which I absolutely loved! It had everything a good book should have: Hot sexy men, a strong heroine, an exciting story – should I say more? I just added all her books to my wish list for Christmas. I can’t wait to read her other books!

  80. 80 Eli
    December 18, 2008 at 4:22 am

    Most of those are on my list, the others probably will be once I get a look. The OMG it can’t get here fast enough belongs to Christina Dodd’s “Danger in a Red Dress”. But that’s March. And that’s the one I’m obsessed with right now, today, it may change if say, I sneeze. Here’s hoping the “gift cards for books are okay” message has sunk in to my giftcard phobic family.

    I don’t want a lot for Christmas
    There’s just one thing I need
    I don’t care about presents
    Underneath the Christmas tree
    I just want VAMPIREโ€™S BRIDE
    More than you could ever know
    Make my wish come true
    That’s all I want for Christmas from you!

    p.s. I love Gena Showalter and every single book she wrote. Really looking forward for others to come.
    And have a merry Christmas all.

    My list would read as follows:

    I know, I know, I am possessed, but what can I say I am crazed about Gena’s books. They are awesome.
    Keeping my fingers crossed :))

    I can’t wait for any of Gena’s books. I did’nt even know her till I was wondering around Barnes and Nobles one day, sat down on the floor, looked up and saw the hottest morsle I’ve seen in a long time, pulled the book down and I was hooked by the first line.
    The Nimph King was my first and I had to go back to the begining, not a shame at all. Next on my list is J. D. Robb. I think I’m in love with Roark. N, I know I am. I also look forward to The Vampires Bride. It’s on my favorites but there is also Brisinger and the next installment of the Aragon trilogy. GREAT book by Christopher Paolini.
    I would like to ask Chris: How did you get your hubby to read a romance?! MY hubby only touches my books so he can try to throw them at the bedside lamp to make me stop reading, doesn’t work either. I,d love to read All the books you all have mentioned. IN bed beside my hubby too.

    I can’t wait for Nalini’s new series. Our book club loves the Psy-Changling series and I have gotten someone at work to read her.

    I also can’t wait for Lora Leigh’s Coyote’s Mate to come out. I loved Mercury’s War and the rest of the series. I think Mercury’s War and Dawn’s Awakening have been the best so far and I’ve read all the books prior to Mass market from Ellora’s cave.

    I have to say if Lora leigh writes it I will read it. I love the Nauti books and can’t wait for the 4th one in that series to come out and her Navy Seals series is fantastic and the transition to the new special ops series with Wild Card was seamless. The next book in that series Maverick comes out soon too.

    I love Gena’s books and have a couple of those on my wish list.

    Can’t wait for JR’s next installment either.

    Too many good books coming out over the next few months!!!!!!
