UF & PNR December 2014
The weather outside is frightful…
But as long as I have a warm spot and a good book…let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.
The holidays are almost here. Is your shopping finished? What book related gifts are you giving or hoping to receive this year? An e-reader? Book store gift cards? Books?
I’m hoping for all of the above…and a cute little light that clips to my glasses to make reading in a low lit area much easier.
What new releases would you love to see in your stocking?
My must haves include: Keeper of the Castle: A Haunted Home Renovation Mystery by Juliet Blackwell and If You've Got It, Haunt It (A Haunted Vintage Mystery) by Rose Pressey. Cozy mysteries with paranormal elements are my “comfort food” of the book world.
There are several other new releases I would like to see under my tree including: Christmas with a Bite by Patricia A. Wolf, City of Eternal Night (Crescent City) by Kristen Painter, Low Midnight (Kitty Norville) by Carrie Vaughn, and Revenant (Demonica) by Larissa Ione.
Laurell K. Hamilton always tops my wish list, but I have to say the latest Anita Blake book, Jason, was disappointing. Sex, sex and more sex…which would be fine if there was more to the story. I love this world and I love to see the story evolve and move forward. This book stayed in the bedroom.
However, Deborah Blake’s Wickedly Wonderful, her second Baba Yaga Novel, was not disappointing at all. This series is a fresh take on the urban fantasy genre. New style characters, new spins on old myths…all wrapped up with a touch of mystery and romance. Excellent combo and Blake blends them up so well. If you haven’t started this series yet make sure to grab book one, Wickedly Dangerous.
New releases touring this month with Bewitching include: Unexpected Eden by Rhenna Morgan and Storm Clouds by Lacy Danes.
