What I got this week

This was a really good week for me! I got some excellent books that I'm very excited to read and review.

These books are a mix of pleasure, reviewing in general, and reviewing for Romance Reviews Today. I think I'm going to start posting links to my Romance Reviews Today reviews, along with a short commentary on my thoughts, so you guys can see what I've been reading and loved! Or didn't love, as the case may be...

FOR GENERAL REVIEW:
 : "The Six Crowns : Fair Wind to Widdershins" by Allan Jones and Gary Chalk. Juvenile. October release.
 : "The Secret Zoo : Riddles and Danger" by Bryan Chick. Juvenile. October release.

FOR REVIEW ON ROMANCE REVIEWS TODAY:
 : "Darkness Rising" by Keri Arthur. Urban Fantasy. October release.
 : "Drink Deep" by Chloe Neill. Urban Fantasy. November release. - I'm holding off on reading this until closer to its due date. And it's *killing* me! I HAVE to know what happens. Fans of this series will know what I'm talking about. Eeeeek!

FOR PLEASURE:
 : "Envy" by J.R. Ward. Urban Fantasy. - I still didn't read the second in this series, but I had a giftcard that was burning a hole in my pocket...
 : "The Bride and the Beast" by Teresa Medeiros. Historical Romance. - I originally picked this up as something to read during lunch when I forgot to bring a book (shocker).. and ended up loving it.
 : "Soul Thief" by Jana Oliver. Young Adult Fantasy.
 : "The Fallen 3 : End of Days" by Thomas Sniegoski. Young Adult. THANK YOU THANK YOU Mr. Sniegoski for continuing this series!!! I have been a huge fan of The Fallen series since I was a teen. I love your Remy Chandler series too.. but Aaron's journey has a special place in my heart. I cannot wait to dive into this. Also.. I totally re-bought the Fallen books (in their new omnibus form!) so they would match this one!

Ahem. Sorry for Fangirl-ing out there. I'm just.. well, I'm just so darned excited.

What I just finished reading:
"Blood Ties" by Mari Mancusi - another quick, fun, action packed book in the Blood Coven series.
"Temptation of a Highland Scoundrel" by Sue-Ellen Welfonder - good, cute historical romance with the teensiest hint of paranormal.
"Queen of Kings" by Maria Dahvana Headley - Still... working on this one. Hit a snag a third of the way through. It was for the Positively Paranormal Book Club that I and a few coworkers run for our library patrons.

That's it for me this week. I can't wait to see what everyone else got!
Happy Reading!
