This one clearing the slate before Norwescon, since I’m fairly sure I’m coming back with more books from that! And without further ado, from B&N:
- Lessons in French, by Laura Kinsale. Historical romance, heartily recommended by the fine ladies over at Smart Bitches.
- Last Night in Montreal and The Singer’s Gun, by Emily St. John Mandel. General fiction; saw this author spoken well of a while back and have been meaning to try her work.
- The Search, by Nora Roberts. Romance/romantic suspense. Because La Nora is awesome.
- Divine Misfortune, by A. Lee Martinez. Comedic fantasy. Heartily recommended by housemate
spazzkat. Lots of fun here involving a couple trying to hire their own personal god.
- And last but most assuredly not least, because I CLEARLY need to get caught up: A Game of Thrones, A Clash of Kings, A Storm of Swords, and A Feast for Crows, by, of course, George R.R. Martin. The epicest of modern epic fantasy. Bought for reasons that should be obvious, and because as I mentioned, I need to bloody well get caught up. ;D
Meanwhile, over in Carina Press land:
- A Marriage of Inconvenience, by Susanna Fraser. Historical romance. Bought because Fraser and I follow one another on Twitter, because she’s a fellow Seattleite, AND a fellow Browncoat, and because I really liked her first book.
- Collision Course, by Zoe Archer. Romantic SF. Same author who did the Blades of the Rose series, which I tore through late last year and quite liked!
- Blood of the Maple, by Dana Marie Bell. Paranormal romance. Yet another vampire, but the concept of this one made me giggle and so I had to check it out: a vampire cursed into vegetarianism after pissing off a witch, finds the one female he can’t resist: a dryad. Muahaha.
- Photographs & Phantoms, by Cindy Spencer Pape. Another steampunk work from Pape, a freebie novella Carina offered today and which I can’t actually download yet until its official release date, but which I’m counting now anyway!
89 for the year, now. We’ll see how many print books I pick up at the con!
