Sunday Book Coveting... On Monday and Bad Bloggers!

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...


  1. Anonymous5:13 PM

    i absolutely adore ( to the point of distraction) MT Anderson.

    SUCH a wide range ! I LOOOOVE Octavian Nothing and the sequel

    ( Rachel: too lazy to sign in)

  2. I really want to catch up with the Morganville books in time for the new ones, but it doesn't look like that's going to happen :p I should be caught up by the november release though...hopefully.

  3. I have Dark Queen and The Courtesan. I had no idea that it was a series or even linked. Thanks I will have to move them up the TBR pile.

  4. 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)I thought I was the only one who felt that way! I quit reading children's and YA lit when I was twelve or so because most of it was putridly bad. I had to be coaxed back into reading it, but I'm glad I gave it another go. Young people get some awesome stories these days.

  5. I cannot wait for the new Susan Carroll...I adore that series!

    Alaine - it's such a wonderful series, I think you'll really like it!

  6. Somehow I missed hearing about Libba Bray's new book. I'll have to add it to my library list for my daughter. Thanks for the heads up. The Ursula K LeGuin looks good too.


  7. A new Libba Bray? Way awesome. And Maria Snyder can't write any more books yet; I haven't made it through (shoot, I haven't begun) her first trilogy. I'd better get crackin', huh?

  8. Your list just reminded me of how disgustingly ignorant I've gotten on series reading this past year. I've got Briggs, Bray, Snyder and Caine books all waiting to be read. No more new series for me until I get caught up!

  9. Rachel: I am looking forward to reading it!

    Chris: Yeah, I really need to read the latest one so I can be ready for the next one... Must try and make a priority!

    Alaine: I really hope you enjoy Carroll! It's a great series. :)

    Memory: Nope, you are very much not alone!

    Amy: Isn't it exciting? I'll be sad to see it end, though!

    Bookwormom: She's one of those authors on my radar that I try and pay attention to! Still a while to wait, though.

    Melissa: I see you have the Study trilogy. I am looking forward to seeing your thoughts on it! It's one of my favourite trilogies of all time.

    Joanne: Wow, three of those authors are in my top author category. You really must read them! Caine is good, too, but I think I will like her adult series more when I get around to reading it!

  10. I really enjoyed Le Guin's Earthsea series. :D

  11. I can't wait to read Hunting Ground! The Alpha and Omega aren't quite as good as the Mercy books but I do enjoy them quite alot! Oh! Oh! Oh! Can't wait for the next two Morganville books :)

  12. Alice: Yeah, I don't like Earthsea... Don't kill me! lol

    Tink: I can't wait for Briggs either! I love her books!

  13. Oh... that first trilogy by Maria Snyder is one I've been eyeing up in the bookshop and wondering about getting. I haven't because I wasn't sure how good they were. I presume they're pretty special?
