Okay, so I apparently lost track of the weekend! I meant to end Dewey week with a Sunday Book Coveting post... I forgot! So, here is a day late. I was trying to think of a theme, and I think I am going to call it 'Fan Girl New Releases'. In other words, books that I wish would hurry up and be released! Anyway, this is for Debi's mini-challenge as part of the Dewey Reading Challenge! (I have a mini-challenge in June! Details soon!)
Hunting Ground by Patricia Briggs - July 28, 2009
- Anyone that reads my blog knows that I love Patricia Briggs! Unfortunately, she can only come out with one Mercedes Thompson book a year, so thankfully there is the Alpha and Omega series to look forward to! This is technically book three, so be sure and read the short story in On the Prowl and Cry Wolf before cracking open this book. Believe it or not, I used to hate paranormal books... That has since changed!
Going Bovine by Libba Bray - September 22, 2009
- Libba Bray is probably one of the first young adult authors in my adult life that I can say I loved. I have read a lot more since, but I had some issues with young adult fiction for years. (It is better now than it was when I was a kid, that's put it that way). Anyway, I loved A Great and Terrible Beauty, Rebel Angels, and The Sweet Far Thing. Will I love this book? Hard to say, but it is Libba Bray and I will read it regardless!
Twilight of a Queen by Susan Carroll - July 21, 2009
- The final book in this series that Amazon calls the Dark Queen series. I am always very surprised that I like this series as much as I do, but I love it! I will be sad to see it end... I hope it goes out with a bang though! If you plan to start it be sure to read The Dark Queen, The Courtesan, The Silver Rose, and The Huntress first!
Sea Glass by Maria Snyder - September 1, 2009
- This is book two in her recent Glass Series. I just recently read book one, Storm Glass, but I have not reviewed it yet. You may want to read her other trilogy first, though, because there are cross-over characters (and, well, I liked the other trilogy better so far!). The order is Poison Study, Magic Study, and Fire Study. This trilogy is still good, though. I plan to review the first book soon!
Those are just some of the books that come to mind! There is also:
Carpe Corpus by Rachel Caine (Book Six in the Morganville Vampire series) - June 2, 2009
Fade Out by Rachel Caine (Book Seven in the Morganville Vampire series) - November 3, 2009
And, many more! Plus, there are books that I have seen reviews of that just look interesting!
Okay, now for the books from the library:
The Exchange by Graham Joyce - I honestly cannot remember why I wanted this book... It's been on the hold list for a while!
The Pox Party by M.T. Anderson - Becky maybe?
Exodus by Julie Bertagna - Cannot remember...
Ethel and Ernest by Raymond Briggs - Nymeth gets a point!
The Language of the Night by Ursula K. Le Guin - Susan gets a point!
The Queen of Attolia by Megan Whalen Turner - Keishon gets a point, but also carry on with the series.
Orphans of Chaos by John C. Wright - Can't remember...
I really need to write down where I get book recommendations from! Anyone think it was them...
