Just A Reminder!
Cold Days Coming November 27
Hey, all you Jim Butcher, Ilona Andrews, and Janet Evanovich fans out there! Just a heads up, in case you forgot to check my Milestones widgets. These guys have books coming out soon. Be ready to pre-order, or to head to your local bookstore on Release Day, if you are anxious to keep up with these three series. To wit:
The Janet Evanovich book, Notorious Nineteen, will be out in twelve days, on November 20th. Yeah, we all know what will likely happen. Stephanie Plum, the world’s worst excuse for a bounty hunter, will get in over her head on some case or other, and will need to be rescued by everyone’s favorite adorable cop, Joe Morelli, and provided yet another set of wheels by the Uber-sexy Ranger. She’ll fret over which one of them she really loves (Morelli, dammit, MORELLI!) and she and Lula will eat gallons of greasy wings from Cluck In A Bucket. It isn’t what happens that keeps me coming back for more with these books. It’s the way the stories are told, and how much they make me laugh. Which is to say, a LOT.
Then we have a Twin Spin! In just nineteen days, on November 27th, Ilona Andrews’ latest From The Edge novel, Steel’s Edge, comes out. And as if that weren’t good enough, the latest Dresden Files book, Cold Days, arrives as well.
The husband and wife team that writes as Ilona Andrews cannot write a bad book to save themselves. They are really a great team. Anyone who has read the Kate Daniels series knows how much fun the books are, and I love the From The Edge series almost as much. The second book in that series, Bayou Moon, is one of my favorite urban fantasy books, ever, thanks to the utterly wonderful character of William Wolf. I still find myself quoting him when I see something beautiful or yummy in a store window or at the bakery. “Umm, pretty. Want. Want. Wantwantwant.” Okay, that’s probably not an exact quote, but close enough. Each of the first three books has featured a different set of main characters who live in the Edge, and I’m looking forward to learning more about the “star” of Steel’s Edge.
And last, but definitely not least. Harry’s back!!! With all of the D & T (Drama and Trauma) that the last two books wrought, I’m so eager to see how Harry is doing in Cold Days. I can’t go into detail about what I’m hoping for without spoiling recent plot lines for those who haven’t read the series yet. But suffice it to say that I have high hopes that Harry will be able to spend time with one of my favorite characters of the series, and preferably in a meaningful way, if you get my drift. Stop the torture, Jim Butcher! You know what we want and who we want it to be with! Even just a little??? Pleeeeze? Well, for sure, whatever is going on in Harry’s world right now, I’ll be there to go through it with him. He is still, hands down, my favorite urban fantasy character of all time.
Now what are you guys waiting for? Head on over to amazon and pre-order some of these, or at least stick a big post-it note on your computer screen to remind you of the release dates. This is good stuff!!!
