Book of the Month

Eh, November. Not a month I am really excited over. Honestly, there is only one new release this month that I will be picking up – well, one plus Kelley Armstrong‘s Nadia Stafford novella, Perfect Victim, but that doesn’t really count here. At least it will give me a chance to finish up my Jane Yellowrock world marathon (the only type of marathon I will ever be in, too). So, it is time to pick your book of the month for November. I have chosen 10 titles to list for the poll, but if you have something else you are anticipating just select “Other” and leave your choice in the comments section. Let’s hope I can not bungle this like I did for October. Anyways, a complete listing of November’s releases can be found HERE.

So, my pick will have to be Dangerously Divine by Deborah Blake (probably because it is the only new release I will be picking up this month). Come to think of it, I don’t remember there being a ton I am dying to get my hands on for December, either. I might be ending 2017 with a whimper.

    I finished “Midnight Labyrinth” today and loved it (gave it 5 Stars) but the one I have been waiting to read is “Dangerously Divine”, that whole original series and this spin-off have been amazing and enjoyable. While few can compare with the writing skill and exceptional stories of Elizabeth Hunter, I have been waiting to read “Dangerously Divine” for a long time because they are just fun to read 🙂 I would love to try “Deja New” just to see if she can recover that magic she had in those first “Queen Betsy” novels that I loved and made me laugh so much 🙂

      Dangerously Divine is my pick, too. I really enjoyed the first trilogy, and this one has started out great so far, too. I toyed with picking up Deja New, but I am trying to be strong and read some off of the TBR pile first (and wait for the reviews to come in, too).

      I think Eversong would be a good place to jump into trying Donna Grant – the rest of her series are so intertwined and humongous that it would be a monster to tackle.

    For November I am most looking forward to Veronica Scott’s The Fated Stars (part of her Sectors series) and Rebecca Zanetti’s Twisted Truths (Blood Brothers #3) on the SF/Paranormal front.

    But my most anticipated book is Nalini’s contemporary, Cherish Hard.

  3. Emily says:

    The only PROBLEM release I have on my calendar is Jeaniene Frost’s “The Brightest Embers” so I guess that’s my pick of the month. Got mostly contemporary on the calendar for November.

  4. Jill E says:

    My other is Brightest Embers by Jeaniene Frost. I’m so-so for the series but it is the only release I am showing for November for PNR & UF.

  5. Dawn says:

    I know it doesn’t fit the PNR vibe, but my pick of the month truly is Nalini Singh’s Cherish Hard, the first spin off of the Rock Kiss series. (But since it isn’t a contender, I voted for Dangerously Divine, since I plan on picking it up as well – eventually.)

    Although, could we include Thor Ragnarok or Justice League? Those would fit and I can’t wait for those to come out either!

    I voted for Haven bun Lindsay J. Pryor. I highly recommend this author for any who are looking for Dark Paranormal/Urban fantasy!

    • kaleigha says:

      It is a pretty quiet one for me, which isn’t a bad thing, though. It will let me finish up on my Jane Yellowrock marathon before Flame in the Dark is released, and maybe even give me some time to catch up on some of last month’s new releases that I haven’t even looked at yet.

  7. Delphine says:

    I have voted for haven by Lindsay j Pryor because I adore her blackthorn series, and am keen to see where this spin off will take us

    • kaleigha says:

      Honestly, I didn’t even know it was a spin-off. All of the good reviews I have seen for her on here have made me move her up my TBR-one day list, too.

  8. Chelle says:

    I voted for Lindsay J Pryor Haven. I’m 75% in. I’m both gripped to know what will happen and a little scared to keep going. Yep, it’s fantastic. I’ll be reading Rebecca Zanetti too, I like her but she can be a bit hit and miss.
    On the contemporary front I’m counting down the days for Nalini Singh’s new book. Sailor the brother of TRex!!!!!

  9. Karin says:

    I also voted for Lindsay J Pryor’ s Haven. The fact that you mention that there is only one book you are interested in thereby claiming there is very little choice, either means you are ignorant of the market or biased towards the one and only author you chose. Either way this does not give me the feeling your opinion is worthy of attention anymore.

    • kaleigha says:

      I wouldn’t say ignorant of the market, but I am still learning. I wouldn’t count my opinion for much, either, since it is just that – an opinion. Never claimed to be an expert, I am just trying to help keep people in the loop of what is coming out. Not a big fan of the biased claim, though, since I do my best to keep things as level as possible, and I try and encourage all of the readers here to share their favorites and opinions. But at the end of the day, I am a reader first and foremost, and there just isn’t that much this month that has me counting down the days. You can not like or respect my opinion, but I am damn sure allowed to have one.

      Oh, and just FYI, I was kindly given an ARC of Haven by Lindsay J. Pryor in October, which is why I won’t be picking it up this month.

      • Karin says:

        Thank you for your reply. Firstly I apologize, my rant was inappropriate and not targeted at you but at an industry that is claiming PNR is on tbe decline. Unfortunately there was no option to remove it once I pressed send.

        PS I only mentioned Mr Pryor as she is one of only 2 I recognised. The other being Ms Zanetti.

        • kaleigha says:

          No problem…crap happens. I blame piracy for authors having to struggle and things being seen as going downhill. If everyone bought legal copies of what they read, numbers would stay up, authors could keep going, and we would all be ahead. Don’t see that happening anytime soon, but I can hope.

  10. Jennings says:

    I’ve voted for Haven by Lindsay J Pryor because I love her books. But I can’t believe there are so many more I now have to add to my TBR pile….thanks for all the suggestions I’m going to check a few of these out!

  11. Stephanie says:

    I voted for Haven by Lindsay J. Pryor. I’m a huge fan of her Blackthorn series and can’t wait to read this spin-off, especially as it’s published by Piatkus, a company whose books I am also a fan of.

  12. Linda says:

    My pick of the month is Haven by Lindsay J Pryor. I absolutely loved her Blackthorn series so I’m really excited to embark on a new journey into the dark and gritty world in Lowtown!
