On the Wishlist…

I usually don’t do many cover posts anymore (maybe I should?) but I couldn’t resist posting about the recent cover reveals for two books from a couple of favorite series. I was just updating my 2012 Wishlist with these.

Ashes of Honor by Seanan McGuireAshes of Honor is book 6 of the October Daye series. From what I can tell from Seanan McGuire’s hints on her blog, this book will bring Toby and Quentin back to Tamed Lightening, and we will see April O’Leary and familiar characters from A Local Habitation once again.

Endgame by Ann AguirreEndgame is also the 6th book in a series (Sirantha Jax), but in this case it is also the final book. “As part of a grass-roots resistance, Jax means to liberate the La’hengrin. Political intrigue and guerrilla warfare are new to her; this will be the most dangerous game she’s ever played—spies and conspiracies, a war of weapons and hearts, and everyone might not make it out alive…” An excerpt can be found here.

I also found out about a new series starting and this is definitely going on my wishlist..

A Confusion of Princes by Garth Nix uk editionA Confusion of Princes by Garth Nix. “You’d think being a privileged Prince in a vast intergalactic Empire would be about as good as it gets. But it isn’t as great as it sounds. For one thing, Princes are always in danger. Their greatest threat? Other Princes. Khemri discovers that the moment he is proclaimed a Prince. He also discovers mysteries within the hidden workings of the Empire.”

I have created a Pinterest board for books I’m eying. Wishlist books are books I’m definitely buying, these books are books to be considered 🙂

So are you on Pinterest? If you are a book blogger, did you know there is a Directory of Book Bloggers on Pinterest at the Well Read Wife? Looks like a nice resource. I just asked to be added to it.

  1. Ooooh, looking at your Pinterest and just have to say that I ADORE Fables, and I also really loved A Long, Long Sleep. I hope you enjoy them if you check them out! The first Fables is okay, but the series gets really phenomenal.

    • I was on the fence about A LONG, LONG SLEEP, so it really makes me feel better about trying it if you liked it. 🙂 And yes, man, I hear such good things about FABLES, I really don’t understand why I haven’t read it already?!

  2. Tybalt! Lordy, I cannot wait for that book. I’m going through serious Toby Daye withdrawal. And while I really, really, really want Endgame, I…Well, it’s the last. And I’ll miss Vel something awful.

    Love your Pinterest board! That’s a great use of the site.

  3. OOOoohhh. I hadn’t seen the cover for ASHES OF HONOR. That my be my favorite yet! Cool. I just finished DISCOUNT ARMAGEDDON. So very good. Have you read it?

    • It’s another good one from Chris McGrath. I wonder what the light behind her means.

      Yes, I read DISCOUNT ARMAGEDDON – wasn’t it fun?! Refreshingly so for the UF genre, I thought. 🙂
