November 10, 2009
Most of the books listed below I received today, the packages from The Bookdepository just kept dropping and dropping on the doormat and when I was preparing this blogpost another one was delivered by the packages mailman. I have to mailmen, one delivers the mail that fits in the mailbox, the other one delivers packages that don't fit in the mailbox or packages I need to sign for.

Since I ordered my monthly order about a week and a half ago and there were some pre-orders in the works it's quite a list this week, so I can hear Mt. TBR sighing deeply under the weight of new books added to it. But I'll start with books that are going straight to the shelves without having to climb Mt. TBR as they have been read as ARCs:

Read ROYAL'S BRIDE for ROOB and won the ARC for SKIN GAME on Ann Aguirre's blog, read it and reviewed it on the Blog
Fantasy Romance

  • This is book 4 in the Tairen Soul series, of which I have only read the first book: LORD OF THE FADING LANDS.

Romantic Suspense

  • This is a new to me author, as far as I know these are stand alones and her third book: SLEEP NO MORE, is coming out in January 2010

  • I won HOT AS SIN in a contest over at Dear Author and it's book 2 in the Hot Shots: Men of Fire series of which I have yet to read book 1, WILD HEAT
  • THE WRONG SIDE OF DEAD is book two in the Sweet Justice series, I have yet to read a book by this author but have been collecting her trilogies from the moment the first one came out!
  • WAKING THE DEAD is the 3rd book the Mind Hunter series of which I have the other two on the TBR, waiting to be read.
  • SHOW NO FEAR is book number 7 in the Navy Seals series, a series I have also on the shelves but is still unread. Heard on Twitter that this series might be discontinued by the publisher. I still hope it won't come to that. 

Historical Romance

  • TO DESIRE A DEVIL is the final book of the Four Soldiers Series and this is finally a series I am up to date with and as soon as I'm done with my reading for ROOB I am tackling this book by one of my favorite authors. 
  • Another favorite historical romance author of mine is Jenna Petersen, WHAT THE DUKE DESIRES is the first book in a new series by her: The Billingham Bastards and I look forward to this new series!

  • MASTERED BY LOVE is the final installment of the Bastion Club, I have only read the prequel of this series so I have my work cut out for me to reach this final book of the series.
  • THE INFAMOUS ROGUE is the the first full length book of The Hawkins Brothers (there is also the ebook prequel: Mistress of Paradise), this is a spin-off series tied to the Too series and I will sound like a broken record now but still have to read that series too.
  • WITH SEDUCTION IN MIND is book 4 in the Girl-Bachelor series, another series I have but have to start reading

Paranormal Romance

You must have discovered a certain pattern by now with the books that arrived this week so I'll say upfront that these two paranormal romance books are also parts of series I haven't started reading yet, but they are occuping their spots on my shelves, patiently waiting their turn.

  • BIG BAD WOLF is an expanded and updated version of the novel previously titled, Fur Factor, I have only read a novella by Christine Warren which was part of the No Rest For the Witches anthology and was set in the Others series world. After that I bought the Others series, but I think I will reacquaint myself with Warren's writing with BIG BAD WOLF before I start the Others series. 
  • DESTINED FOR AN EARLY GRAVE is the 4th book of the Night Huntress series and you know the drill :)

What books have you received this week? And did they go straight to the reading pile or do you have to play catch up like I do?

I got Skin Game! Yay, and I started reading it right away. Also got 2 Victoria Dahl contemps which might be next.

Marissa said...

Mandi said...

I love that you buy books in series that you haven't started yet :) I do that too!!

The Susan Crandall books look really good!

ErotRomReader said...

Wow, that's an impressive number of books you received! I love that you buy so many books at once, it's something I do too. This month I already bought 18 books :) Btw, two books of your list are on my TBB list: Skin Game and Hot as Sin.

Smokinhotbooks said...

Ok little shout out to Skin Game I heart you Reyes. Your book pile is more impressive than mine!

Hmm what I read this week Hunting Season by Shelly Laurenston (awesome), Finding the Lost by Shannon K. Butcher and Born of Fire by Sherrilyn Kenyon. Skin Game my fav read for Novemeber.

I'm a series buyer too! I tend to buy the set, then read them all.

Great reads here. I'm looking for to Skin Game and I still need to read Jeaniene Frost's books.


Cecile said...

Holy Smoly Batman... Get a load of those books... I am still drooling and dreaming over some of those books you have up there!!! Very nice! Damn I even forgot what the question is... lol!!!
Oh yea... what am I waiting for... I have no idea, I am so buried under my TBR pile that it is now resolved into throwing books at me when I open the closet door! LMAO!
Have a great night/day!

SusiSunshine said...

Great loot you've got there. Loved Skin Game so much.
And you should really start Jeaniene Frost's series. Very good!

Fiction Vixen said...

Wow you had a great book week!! I just read the first two books in Jeaniene Frost's Night Huntress series. You need to read it! :)

Bella said...

So many great reads! I've read Lord of the Fading Lands but not the others in the series yet. Thanks for the reminder, I'm going to hunt the rest down.

Nice to meet you!

39, married to my real life romance hero, addicted to TV shows, reading romance novels and Twitter. I'm a chronic (e)book hoarder and my absolute favorite genres within romance fiction are contemporary romance and romantic suspense, but I don't shy away from historical, paranormal or erotic romance either. Even the occasional (urban) fantasy romance, futuristic and sci fi romance may make it to my Mount TBR. This is my corner of the world wide web where I let you know what books I'm hoarding, reading and reviewing.
