* Anxiously Awaiting as of late May 2010

Next week is an exciting week, with Magic Bleeds, Moon Sworn, and Web of Lies being released. This week I've re-read Magic Bites, Magic Burns, and Magic Strikes . I am now more than ready for Magic Bleeds. You can read prologue, snippet, snippet, and teaser now, but that just makes me want the book that much more.

I'm still considering whether I need to re-read some of the Riley Jensen series, since this will be the last book in the series.

Not all of the series I keep up with have another book listed as coming out. The authors have stated there will be more, but to my knowledge they haven't said when, or given a title name. I've listed those series below.
* Caruthers Sisters series by Candace Havens
* Meredith Gentry series by
Laurell K Hamilton
* Cal Leandros series by Rob Thurman
Daughters of Arianne series by Joey W. Hill 
* Dresden series by Jim Butcher 
* Bewitching Mysteries series by Madelyn Alt

Below are series I follow, but it is unclear whether there will be more books in the series:
* Bronwyn the Witch series by Candace Havens
* Nadia Stafford series by Kelley Armstrong
* Nature of Desire series by Joey W. Hill

* Felix Gomez series Mario Acevedo

You can read an excerpt of many of these books, to see my list of excerpts please go here

If someone wants to send me an ARC of one of the books on my Anxiously Awaiting list, I will read it within a day or two of it arriving (assuming I'm home and I'm not sick or anything), and will get a blog post up of it as soon as I've finished reading it. You may send me a digital version at chained lightning at g mail dot com, or to send a hard copy you may contact me at that email address to ask for a shipping address. If you have an ARC you would like to send that is not on my Anxiously Awaiting list I will attempt to read and review it in a timely manner but it may not be placed topmost in my TBR pile. Feel free to email me to see if I'd be interested in reading something, as well. I've found a few authors that way that I may not have read had I not received a review copy from the publisher. And now I'm hooked on a few of those series, just waiting for the next book.


  1. Hello! I'm happy to report that BLOOD ROCK by Anthony Francis is slated for Fall 2010.

  2. Thank you Anonymous - I've made the change!

    I can't wait for the next Dakota Frost book.
