I’m going to have a go at this weekly event which was started by Jill over at Breaking The Spine.
My first week’s pre-publication “can’t-wait-to-read” selection is:
Jaguar Warriors — Book 2
October 26, 2010
“A solitary hunter with no regard for the human world, Jagger Castille is a shifter living on the edge. It will take the woman who calls him enemy to give him a reason to live.
Jagger is a creature of the night—Skye Knightly soars in the sun. Natural adversaries, they have been joined by destiny in a mission entrusted to Skye’s family centuries ago: Nothing less than the salvation of the Earth.
Wounded and bitter, Jagger sought escape in the solitude of the jungle, driven by a need to disappear forever… until a mysterious shifter who calls to his soul and feeds a yearning long forgotten, pulls him from his dark path. A courageous warrior, Skye’s passion is equal to Jagger’s own—but can she trust a man on the edge? A man whose secrets are as devastating as her own?
Each is the other’s sole hope for survival. But a dark and twisted truth is leading them toward the ultimate sacrifice for a love they may never live to claim.”
I read the first book in this series, His Darkest Hunger, back when it hit bookstores in June and I was hooked! Awesome Paranormal Romance? Check. Super sexy alpha male jaguar-shifter and female protag that you’re rooting for the whole time? Check. Am I ready to read about more great romance between engaging characters in this world that Juliana Stone has created? Why yes, yes I am! 😀
Otherwise known as Sidhe’s Wishlist OR The Month That I Went Broke!

Rogue by Rachel Vincent
Just a quick note to let everyone know that even though the release date isn’t until April 1st, Rogue has been spotted and purchased by many in your favorite book stores already!
Ok, so cats don’t always land on their feet… I know that better than most. Since rejoining the Pride, I’ve made big decisions and even bigger mistakes: the kind paid for with innocent lives. As the first and only female enforcer, I have plenty to prove to my father, the Pride and myself. And with murdered toms turning up in our territory, I’m working harder than ever, though I always find the energy for a little after-hours recreation with Marc, my partner both on and off duty.
But not all my mistakes are behind me. We’re beginning to suspect that the dead are connected to a rash of missing human women and that they can all be laid at my feet—two or four, take your pick. And one horrible indiscretion may yet cost me more than I can bear.…
Rogue is the second installment in the Faythe Sanders Were-Cats series of which I am a huge fan. I am really looking forward to devouring it myself, and recommend hopping on the Rachel Vincent book train for a great ride.

I’m having a crazy-busy last week and a half. I did, however, aquire alot of good books! =) I do actually buy alot of books new, but I also buy alot of second hand books from the Goodwill store (my little way of supporting a charity while indulging in my book addiction), second-hand bookstores, and my good friend M, (you know who you are & I love ya!), sends me her copies of books after she’s read them. If any authors are reading this, I apologize, because I know you don’t make money on second hand sales, but there’s no way I could afford to buy all new copies of every book I want. I do spend way more every month on books than most, so I do what I can to support writers and my reading habits.
Books I aquired this week include: The Gathering Dark by Christopher Golden, Darkling by Yasmine Galenorn, When Darkness Comes by Alexandra Ivy, Dragon Heat by Allyson James, Charmed I’m Sure by Liz Ireland, The Stone Maiden by Susan King, Heart Mate by Robin D. Owens, Judgement In Death by J.D. Robb, The Twilight Lord by Bertrice Small, Mysteria an Anthology, My Big Fat Supernatural Honeymoon an Anthology, Midnight Awakening by Lara Adrian, The Moon Stone by Claire Cross, Dream Of Me by Lisa Cach and One Bite Stand by Nina Bangs.
Woot! What a haul! I think my TBR pile is now actually bigger than my Keeper pile. This makes me ridiculously happy. I finished reading Unshapely Things and will be posting my review in the next day or two. I’m now reading Nina Bangs’ One Bite Stand.
