    Just thirteen? I'm laughing here.

    I'd swap the Carolyn Crane for Ilona Andrews' Magic Slays, the Ward for Sarah Rees Brennan's Demon's Surrender, the Stirling for Michelle Sagara's Cast in Ruin, and Laura Wright for Sharon Lee and Steve Miller's Ghost Ship - which is a story I have been awaiting for a frakking DECADE.
    Otherwise I really want to read all of those, but there are others that I am anticipating just as keenly. Decisions, decisions. OH actually, no I have to pull the Alyssa Day too - Late Eclipses, the next October Day novel comes out in March and I will definitely be prioritising that. I do still want the Day... just it's Toby. And Tybalt, hah, I want to know what his deal is.

    @FD, these are my *top* 13, certainly not the only ones. :-)

    Laura Wright is a new face on the scene, but I *really* liked her debut full length book, Eternal Hunger. Review is on my to-do list.

    And I totally love Ilona Andrew's Edge books but I was underwhelmed by the first Magic book. It was OK, but it didn't grab me and make me want to consume EVERYTHING, you know?

    @Janet, thanks for stopping by! I'm kind of addicted to all kinds of books, but the paranormal series are kind of especially dangerous because of the series aspect. If you like Sookie, you might like some of these!

    @Alice, I kinda wish I could quit JR, but I just can't. :-)

    I'm waiting for Pale Demon as well! I'm also waiting for Ghost Story by Jim Butcher. It was supposed to be in April but has not moved to July. As long as it shows up, it's all good :)

    Happy TT,
