Forward Thinking

I decided, instead of waiting for the sun to show its face, I would do a post on some of the books I'm really looking forward to this spring and summer.

As far as reading goes, this year is gonna rock!

Here's my *squee* TBR line-up:

Angel's Blood (Guild Hunter #1) - Available Now
This one is burning a whole in my backpack as I type this. But, I haven't gotten to it yet. I really enjoyed what I've read of Ms. Singh's Psy-Changeling series, and how could I resist something with angels and vampires?

Lover Avenged (BDB #7) - April 28th
I'm super-excited to learn more about the Sympath sub-culture in J.R. Ward's newest BDB release. Rhev has been begging for his story to be told for a couple of books, now. (Also, I have to wait the least amount of time for this one. I'm little on patience, so that counts for a lot. ;)

Dead and Gone (Sookie #8) - May
Okay, so this has technically been out for a while, but I've been waiting for the paperback, so I'm totally stoked! I started reading the Sooky books when I saw the first ads for True Blood. They've become one of my favorite series, now and I have even resisted spoilers for this one on whether there is any hope for my #1 beau in those books (guess who).

City of Souls (Zodiac Series #4 - Cover not available) - June 30th
I really enjoy this series and have been long-awaiting the next release. I was loaned this by a friend (who had borrowed someone else's) and immediately went out and bought myself a copy. Then went back and bought another to give away. These books are that good. I've posted reviews of the first two in the series, The Scent of Shadows and The Taste of Night, here.

Darkness Calls (Hunter Kiss #2) - July 30th
My review of the first book pretty much says it all. All I can add is, if she was just getting warmed up with the series, I can't wait to see what she has in store for us!

Hunting Ground (Alpha & Omega #2) - August
I'll be reviewing the first book in the series soon, but I can say without a doubt that Ms. Briggs has another winner on her hands. I think I might like this one even better than Mercy . . .

Demon Forged (Guardians #8) - TBA
Meljean is on fire. I don't know why the stupid people at Barnes and Noble keep refusing to stock enough of her books. It infuriates me. But as soon as this one is up on google, you can betcha a$$ I'll be pre-ordering.

Gwen said...

Thanks! I'm just getting started on Angel's Blood. Great so far!! *glee*

Mary said...

Don't forget, Naamah's Kiss comes out in June!


Gwen said...

Oooooh... you're right. I see Nalini Singh has another release too. Hmm... I might just have to do something with this. *puts on thinking cap*

Debbie Mumford said...

Nice line-up! Ahhh...the joys of reading!

Gwen said...

Yup yup! It's almost too tempting of a distraction, when I should be writing.

Shelley Munro said...

Ooh, you have some great reading planned. I love the Sookie series. True Blood has just started down here in NZ. I enjoyed the books and I'm enjoying the TV series as well.

Gwen said...

Thanks Shelley! I just finished that one on Saturday. I'm sooo excited that Eric remembers everything now, but a little annoyed nothing came of that. *pouts*
