Here’s what I spent my tasty store credit at Third Place on:
- Downpour, by
katatomic. Book 6 of her Greywalker series. I’m working on reading book 4 right now and hope to be caught up on this series soon! (Also, the observant reader will note that I already bought the ebook before; this is the hardback. Because I did indeed buy this book twice! I do that for fellow authors who love Twice Upon a Time, you know.)
- Working Stiff, by
rachelcaine. First book of her new series.
- Phoenix Rising: A Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences Novel, by Pip Ballantine and Tee Morris. Steampunk/paranormal investigation type novel, set in Victorian England. Sounded like fun, so I snagged it.
Meanwhile, this is how I spent my money from the sale of my original nook:
- Hounded, by Kevin Hearne. Book 1 of the Iron Druid Chronicles. Urban fantasy, starring a protagonist who’s an ancient druid trying to keep a low profile in the modern world. I expect his attempts to pull this off will go very badly, or otherwise we wouldn’t have a series, now would we?
- Crossed, by J.F. Lewis. Book 3 of his Void City series. Urban fantasy, starring a vampire protagonist, and y’all may remember I quite liked the first two of these.
- The Hob’s Bargain, by Patricia Briggs. Fantasy, re-buy of a book previously owned in print.
- Steal the Dragon, by Patricia Briggs. Another re-buy of a previously owned fantasy, one which I quite liked, I note–but Briggs has so many books now that it’ll be easier for me to track her electronically. But I liked this one in particular
- Out of the Deep I Cry, by Julia Spencer-Fleming. Book 3 of her Clare Fergusson mystery series, starring a young woman who’s an Episcopalian priest and the town sherriff with whom she’s developing a relationship with–even though both are fighting against it, because he’s married.
- Death Most Definite, by Trent Jamieson. Book 1 of his Steven de Selby series, picked up in no small part because
seanan_mcguirespoke highly of it. Hero’s working for the Grim Reaper.
- Masques, by Patricia Briggs. Fantasy, another re-buy of a book I’d previously bought in print, but in this case I hadn’t actually read it yet. This is a re-issue of her very first novel, set in the same universe as Steal the Dragon and When Demons Walk and Wolfsbane.
- Wolfsbane, by Patricia Briggs. Fantasy, yet another re-buy, one which I hadn’t read yet in print. Most recent of her Sianim universe fantasy novels.
- When Demons Walk, by Patricia Briggs. The last of my Sianim universe fantasy novel re-buys, and I very much liked this one, as the heroine must pose as the mistress of a crippled nobleman to discover who’s been killing others of noble blood–and who caused the accident that crippled him. This was great fun and I look forward to re-reading it.
- Follow My Lead, by Kate Noble. Romance. Bought due to really liking all her previous novels I’ve read, thanks to the fine ladies at the Smart Bitches site! Third of her Blue Raven series.
- The Young Widow, by Cassandra Chan. Mystery, the first of her Bethancourt-Gibbons series, which I’ve already read and highly enjoyed. Buying this now because it finally hit ebook and I hadn’t been able to find a print copy; my prior read of it was from the library.
That’ll bring me up to 154 for the year and this should sustain me nicely until the releases I’m eying for September.
