Eagerly Anticipating: Is It March Yet?

 

Once again we’ve come to a month where I have a ton of books that I’m looking forward to.  I love months like that!  It’s already almost March and although I haven’t made quite as much progress as I was hoping on my New Year’s resolution to work my way through my own-but-haven’t-read books, I’m determined to change that.  If only all these bright and shiny new books wouldn’t distract me from my goal.  ;)

*Scheduled for release March 6th*

Assassins in Love by Kris DeLake – I haven’t read this author before but I am intrigued by a series about a guild of assassins.  Is anyone anticipating this book?

Fair Game by Patricia Briggs – It’s finally here!  The wait has been soooo looooong.  I can’t wait to jump back into Ana and Charles’s life.  I bet it’s going to rock.

Now or Never by Michele Bardsley – This is the second book in the Nevermore  series.  I read the first book, Never Again, last March and enjoyed the world the author created.  I’m glad to finally see what comes next in the series.

Oracle’s Moon by Thea Harrison – This is a bit of a “decision” book for me.  I haven’t enjoyed this series quite as much as most other people seem to, and each book seems to leave me a little less impressed than the last.  I’m hoping this one will knock my socks off.

The Surrender of Miss Fairbourne – I’m excited to get my hands on this.  I enjoy this author anyway, but the book description seems especially fun.  I hope there’s lots of banter.

*Scheduled for release March 13th*

Hunter’s Prey by Moira Rogers – Sophia introduced me to this author with the Southern Arcana series.  I enjoyed it and don’t know why I haven’t tried anything else by her.  I think it’s time I change that.  Does anyone know if this can be read as a standalone or if it’s best that I read it in order?

*Scheduled for release March 20th*

Born to Darkness by Suzanne Brockmann – I have never read this author before, but I have been meaning to try her out because of how many good things I’ve heard about her.  Have any of you read her?  Any opinions one way or another about her work?

*Scheduled for release March 27th*

A Week to be Wicked by Tessa Dare – The first book in this series, A Night to Surrender, was a lot of fun to read.  Minerva and Colin, the hero and heroine of this book, were side characters in ANtS who did not particularly like each other.  I’m hoping that I’ll be treated to a lot of delightful bickering in this book.  I’m in the mood for a frenemies-to-lovers romance. ;)

At Your Pleasure by Meredith Duran – I have become hooked on this author.  My only regret is that she doesn’t have a big backlist for me to glom.  *sigh*  I have to wait patiently for each new release instead.  I’m really excited to read this one.  Duran always manages to suck me in.

Bear Meets Girl by Shelly Laurenston – Woohoo!  I’m stoked to get my hands on this book.  I absolutely adore this author’s humor.  If you haven’t read this author yet…why not?

Blood on the Bayou by Stacey Jay – I haven’t read the first book in this series, but I did recently buy it.  I’ve heard excellent things about this series.  Have any of you guys read it?

Sins of the Son by Linda Poitevin – Finally this is coming out!  I finished the first book in the series, Sins of the Angels, and immediately wished I had the second book to dive into.  I had a lot of questions when finishing the first book, so I’m hopeful I’ll get some answers in this one.

Taming an Impossible Rogue by Suzanne Enoch – Okay, people, get out of my way.  I need this book.  I read the first book in the series, A Beginner’s Guide to Rakes, and looooved it.  I can’t wait to give this one a try!

Temptation Rising by A.C. Arthur – I’m starting to become wary of new PNR and UF series, but something about this caught my eye.  I think I’m going to take a chance and try out another new to me series without waiting to hear what my friends think of it first.

Wicked As They Come by Delilah Dawson – I’ve had my eye on this book for a month or two.  I find the description and cover of it odd but somehow interesting.  I’m curious enough to try it out to see how it is.  I predict that I’ll either really love it or really hate it.  The description of it makes me think it’s one of those polarizing books.

    I really liked Dead on the Delta, which preceded Blood on the Bayou. The mc is a bit of an anti-hero, which took me a while to connect to but it was definitely worth it. This is my most anticipated read of March. It definitely falls under the category of dark and gritty UF, kind of like Stacia Kane.

    I’m also looking forward to Sins of the Son. There were a lot of negative reviews out there for Sins of the Angel, so I expected not to like it, but I was really pleasantly surprised. Interesting plot, great slow burn. But then again, I”m a fan of police procedurals in the UF genre done well (another fab author is Diana Rowland). I think a lot of the reaction to Sins of the Angel was because not all UF fans are interested in police procedurals, but I love ‘em.

    Suzanne Brockmann is good, intelligent crack, imo. I’ve only read her Troubleshooters books, but I literally had to read all sixteen one after the other, and I was still bummed when I finished the last one and found out there were no more in the series. Great mix of plot and romance, but I can’t comment on this particular series.

      An anti-hero, huh? I like dark and gritty, so I hope I enjoy it.

      I saw some of the negative reviews. Although it wasn’t a perfect read for me, I still enjoyed it a lot. Although, like you, I enjoy police procedurals, so that might be a factor.

      Thanks for the FYI about Brockmann. It sounds like you really love her. I can’t wait to try the book!

    Nice choices!!!

    I’m reading Fair Game now! *thumbs up*

    I’ve been waiting to read Laurensten’s Pride series for awhile. Just finished her Dragon Kin series. Loved. it!

    But wait, no Lover Reborn?

      I’ve been following all your Dragon Kin reads and am stoked you’ve been enjoying them. I hope you enjoy the Pride series just as much!

      Nope, not for me. I don’t read that series. This is just a look at what I’m personally looking forward to in March. It’s like a prettied up version of my Google calendar. :D

    Suzanne Brockmann is one of my very favorite authors. I have read every single book from her. Every single one. (I hear my credit card weeping right now). So happy she has a new release coming out and can’t wait to read it.

    I’m oddly compelled by Wicked As They Come too. I’m waffling on pre-ordering vs. waiting to sample and read reviews though.

    I am looking forward to the new Patricia Briggs, and the new Suzanne Enoch. I think her last book was the best ever, I gave it 11 stars. So, hoping she can top that!
    But well, almost March? We are just halfway through february, and there will be some good books this month too :)

      We’re on the downward slope toward March, and I’m a glass half empty kind of girl, so I’m already thinking in terms of “almost.” But you’re right about the good books this month. I’m still working through them, myself.

      Did you already get to read Fair Game. Lucky! I’m thrilled to hear it was awesome. I’ve been waiting for-e-ver for it to come out, and I would be so disappointed if it wasn’t that great.
