* Excerpts, First Chapters, and Sneak Peeks

Some of the books on my Anxiously Awaiting list have excerpts available at the author's or publisher's websites. I've listed the excerpts and snippets below, as well as a link to my review where I've had access to an ARC.

I would love to have an ARC for any of the books on this list, or on my Anxiously Awaiting list. See my Review Policy for more information about sending books for review.
Penguin has put a page up for Hit List. I like the cover better than the cutting implement covers of late. I wish they gave us more than a one sentence synopsis, though.  6/7/11

McMillan has a page up for Kitty's Big Trouble. Just a synopsis though, no excerpt. 6/28/11

Kelly Armstrong has a page up with cover art and blurb (but no excerpt) for Spell Bound (Savannah) (Women/Otherworld Bk 12)   7/26/11

Nalini Singh has a page up for Archangel's Blade, but just a blurb for now, with a promise of an excerpt to come.

Hyperion has a page up for Heat Rises, the next Nikki Heat book, but no blurb or excerpt. Entertainment Weekly has a blurb for it though, and it sounds like a pretty good set up.

In case you haven't read them yet, there are also some excerpts up for books released in 2010, and 2011 to date:


  1. Wow that is such a huge list of books to read!! As a book worm I love reading Motivational, wealth creation, inspirational and spiritual books.
    At the moment I am reading Twilight and am so looking forward to reading new moon!


  2. Chapter 3 of Dead Reckoning (Charlaine Harris) is up at Penguin.
