You guessed it, yet another book roundup

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 userinfospazzkat. 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!
