It will or at least SHOULD surprise none of you that since I was handed a raise and a review bonus, in addition to getting my shiny new guitar, I also cut a big swath through my ebook wishlist! Drum roll, if you please:
- Flirting With Danger, Don’t Look Down, Billionaires Prefer Blondes, Twice the Temptation, and Touch of Minx, by Suzanne Enoch. Romantic suspense. got me started on these by loaning me a paperback copy of Book 1, so I decided to re-read that one as well as getting the rest!
- Running Scared, Die in Plain Sight, Innocent as Sin, The Wrong Hostage, and Always Time to Die, by Elizabeth Lowell. Romantic suspense. Re-buys of various Lowell books previously owned in print.
- Living With Ghosts, by Kari Sperring. Fantasy. Picked up because it was recommended to me!
- The Little Stranger, by Sarah Waters. General fiction.
- Darkborn, by Alison Sinclair. Fantasy.
- Homicide in Hardcover, by Kate Carlisle. Mystery. Picked up because I’m a sucker for mystery series where the protagonist is involved with books and because I saw it sitting on the shelf at Third Place near another author’s books. (There is quite a bit of irony in electronically reading a mystery series focused on physical books and their making and selling, but hey!)
- Stranger, by Zoe Archer. Paranormal romance. This is the fourth of her Blades of the Rose series and I’m looking forward to ripping through this one!
- State of Decay, by James Knapp. Urban fantasy. Re-buy of something previously owned in print which I didn’t actually read yet, and also, ZOMBIES!
- Vicious Circle, by Linda Robertson. Urban fantasy. Bought because Juno Books is a pretty reliable source of urban fantasy with decent heroines.
- Wilderness, by Dennis Danvers. Urban fantasy (?). Bought because I have previously enjoyed at least one of Danvers’ books and the premise sounded interesting: grad student has to prove to her bio prof that she is, in fact, a werewolf.
- Territory, by Emma Bull. Fantasy. Bought because it was recommended to me, and because the sample I yoinked down onto my Nook was quite entertaining.
Also, although this is an audiobook it does IMO count:
- The Truelove, by Patrick O’Brian. Book #15 of the mighty Aubrey-Maturin series, bought because had loaned me MP3s of this during my breast cancer recovery. I still haven’t listened to it because I haven’t caught up to Book 15 in the series yet, but I wanted to go ahead and buy the actual audiobook. Patrick Tull did an awesome job narrating the audiobook Sarah loaned me of Treason’s Harbour, so I’ll be buying more of these.
That gives me a grand total of 20 books acquired, and brings the yearly total to 363. Also, for the record, my Nook is still not full!
