I was working on my calendar and preparing my schedule for the next few weeks (I am NOT a control freak ok?) when I realized how many highly expected books are coming out between now and September 30th. This is going to be a crazy period. Just check it out:
Wanderlust, the sequel to highly acclaimed Grimspace by Ann Aguirre. Kmont has already done an early review of it. Sounds good!
Nalini Singhs’ 5th installment in her Psy/Changeling series, Hostage to Pleasure. I have read it and let me say it: it is AWESOME. Stay tuned because we are preparing one of our specials, this time a whole week including an exclusive interview with Nalini and a giveaway! Meanwhile, you can check Kmont’s awesome review of Hostage to Pleasure here. (the woman is on a roll) . She is giving away a copy of the book and you have till midnight Wednesday, eastern standard time (U.S. residents only) to enter and the winner will be chosen and announced on Thursday.
September 30th – the one date to rule them all:
Mr Cavendish, I Presume by Julia Quinn. One word: INCREDIBLE. Books such as this are the reason why I read romance novels. Mr Cavendish is quite simply, one of the best romance novels I have ever read. A highly emotional journey that brought tears of pure joy to my eyes. It is the second book in the Two Dukes of Wyndham series with both books taking place at the same time. You can check my review of book 1, The Lost Duke of Wyndham here.
King of Sword and Sky – the much awaited 3rd installment in CL Wilson Tairen Soul series. I think this is my favorite series at the moment, can’t wait to read it!
The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman – We both love Neil Gaiman and we can’t wait to get our greedy little fingers on this one – the book is a homage to the Jungle Book about a boy whose parents die and he is then adopted by the inhabitants of a cemetery. Can we say “classic” right here, right now? No? Too soon? Ok.
Seduce me at Sunrise – Lisa Kleypas’ second installment in her Hathaway sisters series. Merripen and Win’s tale started in Mine till Midnight and the glimpse into their relationship in that book was enough to have fans waiting anxiously for their story.
And let’s not forget LAST week’s releases of Breaking Dawn, Shades of Dark (a MUST read for Sci-FI fans, the sequel to Gabriel’s Ghost by Linnea Sinclair) and The Rake’s Guide to Pleasure (which I highly recommend).
What about you? Which books are you looking forward to in August and September?
