Meh, not much going on. No new series this week, so didn’t do that post. Nothing that catches my eye being released, so no pick of the week, either. I spent two weeks getting though Tes Hilaire‘s Deliver Me From Darkness, not sure if that was because I was in a slump, or because I had three books staring at me that I wanted to read more, but for some reason I just couldn’t get engaged in this one. It had everything I like, but I just couldn’t get involved enough in the story to enjoy it, and had a hard time making myself finish it. I did dive immediately into Patricia Brigg‘s Fair Game afterward, and read almost half the book in one sitting. I feel so sad for Charles, but I do love seeing Anna come into her own.
There has been another change of plans for Kresley Cole‘s Dacian’s spin off, Shadow’s Claim. It’s September release date was pushed back to mid-December, but has been moved once again to November 27th. Also, looks like Kresley is firing up to start another IAD book, but she is being coy about who it will feature (can I hope Thronos and Lanthe?). The cover for her upcoming Poison Princess will be released soon, so keep an eye out.
Cynthia Eden is writing another Bound book (her e-book novellas series, which are great reads). Most of those particular stories have been inspired by fairytales, and looks like this time around it is Sleeping Beauty meets vampires and werewolves. I do love these stories, and I have high hopes that they will head to print format one day.
Richelle Mead is hard at work on next year’s third Bloodlines novel, but no title has been announced yet. From the sounds of things, though, Adrian is getting himself into all sorts of trouble.
Alyssa Day‘s much, much pushed back novella from the Warriors of Poseidon series, Alejandro’s Sorceress, is supposed to be finally released this week – but I still can’t seem to track down any links. For those of you who are interested, there is an excerpt available on her site HERE.
Still working on an update for the look of the site, but let’s just say that there is a nasty steep learning curve for CSS. And since I am barely computer literate, it is…interesting. On the plus side, I do love a challenge.
