Fangirling... again!

Three books I'm excited about that have just been released:

Ilona Andrews' Steels Edge:
      Love her Weird series. Can't wait to read this one!

Joanne Bertin's Bard's Oath:
     Ran into the first book in this series, Dragon and Phoenix, last year. Loved it, found the next one online, discovered that there was no third. Given the publication dates of the first two, assumed the series would never be complete, and wailed about the unfairness of the universe. Then I found the new one just came out at the end of November.

Nalini Singh's Archangel's Storm
Bought it as soon as it came out. Love Nalini Singh, with her Guild Hunter Series as my absolute favorites. I'm still waiting for the next in the Psy/Changeling series.

There are many more I can't wait to snatch up as soon as they're available, but I figured I'd limit myself to three, because otherwise I could go on all day. Have you read any of these three yet? What did you think?

What books are you about to buy?


  1. I read Dragon and Phoenix a long time ago. The others I don't recognize.
    I thought it was different. She definitely made the cultures feel alien to ours. I don't remember any particulars, but it did nothing to make me want to read more books by her.

    I'm holding off buying things for myself until after the holidays. Otherwise I'd have the new edition of National Geographic's North American birds guide. Right now I've got a lot of catching up to do with fiction books Bob bought that I haven't read yet. I'm working on Neil DeGrasse Tyson stuff right now, though.

    1. I've always had a soft spot for good world-building with very detailed, very different cultures... Not that you could tell, or anything. ;)

      My to-be-read pile is pretty big, too. One of these days, it'll fall over and squish me. (It's a risk I'm willing to take. *throws another book on the pile*)
