Hello, September! I feel like I have been waiting for you forever. Or at least forever for a few of the books that are going to be released. I have 12 books that I am anticipating this month. Some are relatively new adds, but some have been sitting on my calendar for a whole year, waiting for them to finally be released.
*Scheduled for release September 6th*
Demon Marked by Meljean Brook - This is one of the books that I have been waiting a year for. Ever since I read Demon Blood on its release day in July 2010, I have been dying for this book. If I could only choose one book to read this month, this would be it. The Guardian series is one of my absolute favorites.
The Dragon Who Loved me by G.A. Aiken - I adore this author. Whether she’s writing under this name or as Shelly Laurenston, she fits me to a T. Her books are so hilarious and fun. I can’t wait to read this latest installment.
Archangel’s Blade by Nalini Singh - Ah, the Guild Hunter series. How I wish there were more books out so I could glom them all. I want more Elena and Rafael, but I like that the author is branching out into the Seven as well.
Midnight by Ellen Connor - I read the first book in this series, Nightfall, and was absolutely impressed with how the author portrayed the decay of civilization and loved watching the survivors learn how to adapt. I can’t wait to try this one out to see what has become of the world now that three years have passed.
Kissing Comfort by Jo Goodman - I am a big fan of this author. Her stories are always so layered and dense and I adore the way she writes her characters. Whenever I pick up a book by her, I know I’m going to have to pay attention to catch all the subtle details. But I am constantly amazed by how little her covers represent the complex work inside.
*Scheduled for release September 27th*
In Total Surrender by Anne Mallory - Ah, my second most anticipated book of the month. I love, love, love this author. She writes fabulous dialogue and killer sexual tension. I cannot wait to get my hands on this one and to get inside the head of Andreas. When we saw him in One Night Is Never Enough he seemed like a very dark and angry man. I’m very curious to see what makes him tick.
Sins of the Angels by Linda Poitevin - This one is a relatively new addition to my calendar, but it looks intriguing. I am interested in seeing how exactly the hero has a bullet proof soul.
Darkness Unbound by Keri Arthur - I read some of the Riley Jensen Guardian series and liked the writing, but I couldn’t hang with the heroine and the sleeping around. So I’m curious to see how this series will agree with me. I’m also curious to see what new spin this author has given reapers.
The Darkest Surrender by Gena Showalter - This is such a fun series. You know you’ll get something that is sexy, fast paced, and a bit over the top when you pick up one of these. I can’t wait to see Strider’s epic ego fall in love.
Every Scandalous Secret – by Gayle Callen - I’ve heard great things about this author, although I haven’t tried her yet. I want to get my hands on this one, but I don’t know whether or not these need to be read in order. Anyone?
Spider’s Revenge by Jennifer Estep - Ahhh, finally! The conclusion to the Mab arc is so close that I can practically taste it. I just know it’s going to be badass. I can’t wait to see how Gin lays a case of whoop-ass on Mab and her cronies.
In Blood We Trust by Christine Cody - I haven’t read any of this series yet, but I’m just about to crack open the first book, Bloodlands. It looks pretty awesome and I love that the books have been released so close together.
