Thursday Thirteen, Edition 21: New Releases

OK, we're doing a simple one this week.  I just got back from a whirlwind tour of the midwest and I'm fried.

I have shown such amazing restraint of late.  There are tons of books out by my favorite authors and yet my TBR pile is teetering and I'm behind on reviews, so I've very virtuously been delaying some purchases that I'd normally snap up on release day.  Here are thirteen of them (in no particular order):

1. Eloisa James- A Kiss at Midnight
2. Julia Quinn, 10 Things I Love About You
3. Susan Mallery, Almost Perfect (I'm actually behind by several books of hers)
4. Judith James, Libertine's Kiss
5. Elizabeth Hoyt, Wicked Intentions (oddly, I was a bit underwhelmed by her Prince series but her more recent ones are calling to me.)
6. Loretta Chase, Last Night's Scandal (Oh, it physically HURT to leave this one behind. Soon, my pretty.)
7. Robyn Carr, Summer in Sonoma -- also very behind on this author.
8. Christina Dodd, Chains of Ice -- want want WANT. I love Dodd's paranormals.
9. Kristan Higgins, All I Ever Wanted
10. Carly Phillips, Kiss Me If You Can. Yes, she's had a couple of clinkers.  But somehow I'm ready to give her another chance.
11. Lisa Kleypas, Love in the Afternoon
12. Tessa Dare, Three Nights with a Scoundrel Sigh. Behind. So many books, so little time.
13. Anthology, Burning Up. Despite my well-documented lack of affinity for anthologies, I have a really hard time passing up anything with Nalini Singh OR Meljean Brook's name on it. And both? In one book? Yeah, I'm a goner.

You might notice some glaring omissions here, like Demon Blood and Bonds of Justice and The Forbidden Rose.  That's because I had no restraint where they are concerned. Next T-13 I'll shoot for is the last 13 books I've read - maybe by then there will be overlap with this one.

Oh noh! And my list just keeps on growing. I'm finished with Almost Perfect so I'll wait for your review if you're planning to make one. I'm planning to read Elizabeth Hoyt soon. Thanks for sharing this list. =)

Great timing. I'm on my last TBR book so I'm looking for good reads.

Chains of Ice is a great read! Now I'm waiting for Sherrilyn Kenyon's No Mercy.

You should make an exception for Loretta Chase. Her latest was delicious!
