Bookish News #1
Bookish News is something we have been wanting to do for a while. It'll be our new post discussing a few of the bits of book news released during the week that we were super excited to hear about - teasers, covers reveals, release dates etc.
This time last year, Kim and I were busy voting for our favourite Alphas in Vampire Bookclub's Alpha Showdown. We were extremely excited when our man Barrons (from Karen M Moning's Fever series) took the title last year, and couldn't wait for this years comp to begin. The first round saw Kim and I become frienemies as my beloved Terrible (Stacis Kane's Downside Ghosts) was up against Kim's favourite heroine Kate (Ilona Andrews's Kate Daniels series). After a extremely tight clash, Kate ended up on top and advanced to the next round. Although I was disappointed, I couldn't be too upset as Ilona Andrews posted a snippet from Kate Daniels #6
(To see all the clashes, winners, and to vote, head over to Vampire Bookclub)
So who will win this year? Well, we find out on Monday (Australia's Tuesday), and there's still plenty of time to vote, its Curran (from Kate Daniels) vs Bones (Night Huntress series) but our money is on Bones for the win. (Although I won't be too disappointed if Curran wins: Kim)
Sarah Alderson - author of the amazing Hunting Lila - is posting a new teaser quote from Hunting Lila's sequel (Losing Lila) EVERY SECOND DAY UNTIL RELEASE! I know, I'm still smiling about it! Losing Lila is out in August, that means plenty of teasers to come.
You can catch-up on Sarah's Facebook page and keep watching for more teasers.
Nalini Singh, one of my absolute favourite Paranormal Romance authors released the first chapter of the next Guild Hunter book - Archangel's Storm. This news wasn't released this week but I couldn't help adding it. Check it out here and don't forget Archangel's Storm hits stores in September.
Eye spy with my little eye, the cover and blurb for House Rules (Chloe Neill's Chicagoland Vampires #7) on goodreads. This excites me considering Biting Cold (CV #6) isn't out yet.
In a city full of vampires, trouble never sleeps.
At the tender age of 27, Merit became a sword-wielding vampire. Since then, she’s become the protector of her House, watched Chicago nearly burn to the ground, and seen her Master fall and rise. Now she’ll see her mettle—and her metal —tested like never before.
It started with two . . . Two rogues vanishing without a trace. Someone is targeting Chicago’s vampires, and anyone could be next. With their house in peril, Merit and her Master, the centuries old Ethan Sullivan, must race to stop the disappearances. But as they untangle a web of secret alliances and ancient evils, they realize their foe is more familiar, and more powerful, than they could have ever imagined
Now whether this blurb and or cover will change, we don't know. But we'll let you know if it does.
Hope you enjoyed this little snippet of book news. We'll be keeping our eyes out for more bookish news, but let us know if you see anything as well.
