Pick Three

I was thinking about the books that I’m REALLY looking forward to this year. I’m counting down the days to their release. Obviously, there are more than three, but I thought I’d pick my top three anyhow.

In no particular order, I can’t wait for the following releases:

On the Prowl (anthology) by Patricia Briggs, Eileen Wilks, Karen Chance and Sunny. (It has Patricia Briggs and Eileen in it. Nuff said.)
Halfway to the Grave by Jeaniene Frost (Yes, I’ve already read it. And it was great! But, I want my hard copy.;)
Devil Inside by Jenna Black (Cannot wait to read this book. It sounds fantastic. The excerpt rocked seven ways to Sunday.)

Those are my top three. There are a lot of other books out there that I want to read. (ie The Devil You Know by Mike Carey,
Mane Event by Shelly Laurenston, Ice Cold Grave by Charlaine Harris, Tanner’s Scheme by Lora Leigh, The Vampire Queen’s Servant by Joey Hill, Dark Hunger (graphic novel) by Christine Feehan, and Howl at the Moon by Christine Warren)

Now it’s your turn. Which 3 books are you most looking forward to this year? No cheating. 😉

  1. I love Jeaniene Frost. She’s sending me an ARC. The first one really came before the second. LOL.

    Does her book still count? I want the On The Prowl antho as well, the Holidays Are Hell antho (Vicki Pettersson!) and if the first one doesn’t count…Justine Musk’s upcoming YA Uninvited.

  2. May, The first one counts…cheater. 😉 *ggg*

  3. Only three? I just did a search yesterday of B&N (and to find you what was coming out when. My three would be:
    1)The Witch is Dead- Shirley Damsgaard
    2)Creation in Death- J.D. Robb
    3) Lick of Frost- LKH
    and of course Harry Potter *g*.
    Have a great weekend.

  4. Ann, I must say that Lick of Frost does have me intrigued because I really liked that particular character a lot.

  5. Im going to read The Good Guy by Dean Koontz, Blaze: A Novel by Richard Bachman (S. Kings old Pen name) with foreword by Stephen King (How weird is that? I couldnt pass it up), and 9-12 of Evanovitchs Stephanie Plumb series.

  6. Jordan, cheater’s not the worst thing I’ve been called. LOL.

  7. Off the top of my head, Linda Howard’s “Up Close and Dangerous” in July, J.R. Ward’s “Lover Unbound” in September, and Patricia Briggs’ “Iron Kissed” in January — I know I’m really looking forward to them because I can actually remember the release month. 🙂

  8. First, thanks for the mention, Jordan! If Red were coming out this year, it would definitely make my top three. Okay, here goes: Tiffany Trent’s first novel in the Hallowmere series, In The Serpent’s Coils. I read it as a sneak peak and it dazzled me. I want my own copy – signed! Then, Holiday’s Are Hell anthology with Vicki Pettersson, Kim Harrison, and Lyndsay Sands. ‘Nuff said there, right? Finally, Taken By The Night by Kathyrn Smith. It’s the third novel in the Brotherhood of Blood series. Vampire – love them!

  9. Lois McMasters Bujold, The Sharing Knife: Legacy. (I don’t have my copy yet so it counts as one I’m looking forward to, right?) Harry Potter #7. I’m looking forward to it but also really sad that JK Rowling isn’t planning to write any spinoffs. I hate to see it end. And I’m looking forward to Sydney Croft’s debut! I have an ARC of Riding The Storm but I’m still looking forward to the actual print release. *g*

  10. Bernard, That is weird, but I guess it’s not much different from Sherrilyn Kenyon getting quotes from Kinley MacGregor. (They’re the same person.;) Sounds like that will keep you buy for a while.

  11. May, LOL!

  12. Lynn, I’m really looking forward to Iron Kissed, too. I love Patricia’s work. I have all the J.R. Ward books (except the latest one) and I’m ashamed to admit that I haven’t read any of them yet. :/

  13. Jeaniene, ;). I haven’t heard of Tiffany. I’ll have to look her up. I am looking forward to the anthology with Vicki. So many good reads out there. 🙂

  14. Charli, I forgot about Sydney’s debut. I am looking forward to that book, too.

  15. Sydney’s debut is really good. I say this with authority because I’ve read it. (I’m haunting the comments because I’m desperate for victims for my blog)

  16. May, LOL! Victims, eh?

  17. Rebecca Gable, Das Spiel der Knige (last in a trilogy about the War of the Roses)
    Bernard Cornwell, Sword Song (another Uhtred book – gotta love Saxons, Vikings and battles)
    A non fiction book about Late Antiquity from the Wissenschaftliche Buchgesellschaft – I already have their series about the Middle Ages (4 books) and this will complete it nicely.

  18. Gabriele, Those will definitely keep you busy. Yowza! 😉

  19. Lol, esp. Rebecca’s. She can’t write books under 1000 pages. *grin*

  20. Garbriele, LOL! Good god. Snort. There’s no way. *ggg*
