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