I cannot believe it’s August already! Where did summer go? Things have been so crazy lately between editing Soul Avenged and writing Requiem. I’ve also been working on a little side project, a story for an anthology that I’ll discuss in a later post. Unfortunately, all this craziness (in addition to some summer plans) has left me little time to read.
I don’t know about you, but when I don’t read for a while, it does something to my brain, especially if I’m busy writing the whole time. Sometimes I just need to slip out of the world I’m creating and escape into someone else’s for a bit. A short bit…I’ve got deadlines.
So I’m going to set aside some time to do some reading…and in preparation for this, I have some books lined up on my Kindle that have been begging for my attention...books that I think would be great summer reads (er...end of summer that is):
- An Endless Hunger by Narcisse Navarre <<not the sparkly vampires, the kickass kind
- Day of Demons (Anachron Press) <<I hear The Serpent’s Kiss by Krista Walsh in this anthology is awesome. Cannot wait to read it!
- Angel Time (Songs of Seraphim) by Anne Rice
- Eternal by J.A. Belfield <<a great series for all you werewolf fans
- Crimes Against Magic by Steve McHugh <<I beta’d this but dyin’ to read the shiny polished version
- Lothaire by Kresley Cole
- South of Bixby Bridge by Ryan Winfield
- Halfway to the Grave by Jeaniene Frost
- Ripples by Candice Bundy <<she’s got a shiny new cover for this one!
- Techxorcist by Colin F. Barnes <<because Gerry sounds hot, whether he's supposed to or not ;) <<ooh! I rhymed!
- Inhale by Kendall Grey <<proceeds for this one go to whales
The Black Dagger Brotherhood is a series by J.R. Ward that I’ve been itching to read for the longest time. Unfortunately, anything with ‘Brotherhood’ has to be set aside for me as I write Soul Avenged (because of the six demon brothers in my story). Bummer. I’ve heard good things about this series. And a house full sexy vamp warriors? Yeah. Need to hurry up and write…
So, what are you reading right now? Got a book that you can’t wait to get your hands on?
