    I’m reading Kiss of Crimson now, and it’s awesome! I do so love the Breed. :kissie:

    And looking at that list, I think there are too many series in the reading world now. It’s taking me so long to keep track of what books are coming out in whose series that I don’t have time to read anymore. :hide:

    Great list. I’ve been waiting for Lean Mean Thirteen, myself, but I have a serious issue with 25 dollars for hardback, so I’ll be looking to pick it up in paperback also.

    I wrote this list early yesterday evening and then ended up reading Lean Mean Thirteen last night, so it’s no longer a TBR book. I can’t recommend spending money to get it in hardcover. It’s like all the other Stephanie Plum books, cute, funny, but like all the other SP books. In other words, nothing happens, nothing moves forward, at all. Not even a little. It’s like reading the last three books, just different buildings to blow up and cars to wreck. I wonder how many times she can recycle the same plot?

    So many good books, so little time! I’d love to read all of these.

    Devil’s Right Hand sounds really, really good! I may just have to pick that one up.

    Lesley, it’s actually the third book in the series. If you haven’t read the first two, start with the first. I love them!

    I’m also reading Kiss of Crimson now. Then I’ll try the first eight and go from there. Great list. Thanks for the recommendations.

    I have ARC envy, sigh.

    LOVING Lara Adrian’s take on vampires! Oh and I really liked Matters of the Blood too.

    Everything else on your list I’m totally jonesin for except Wild Wild West cause I’m lucky enough to have an ARC too.

    Thanks for the tip, Angie! And for the link!
    Yeah, I dunno why I added that cute dancing girl, but I’ve wanted to put her on something for months! LOL

    I have ARC envy 🙂

    It looks like a great list of books!

    Awesome reading list. Do you belong to Shelfari, or is that already a dirty word in your vocabulary? LOL.

    I have most of those books, but a few I never heard of, so thanks.

    I’d rather be staked on a mound of fire ants :chair:

About Me

Angela James

There is nothing worse than writing a bio. And writing one for your blog sidebar? Blech. Maybe you landed here via Google, followed me from Twitter (does that make you a stalker?) or maybe we met at a conference or you clicked a link from a comment I made at a blog you visited. Hopefully whatever I said didn't make you so mad you came looking for a picture to throw darts at (yep, that's me up above, in my favorite cowboy hat) but instead drove you to find out more about the amazingly witty and intelligent person behind the amazingly witty and intelligent comment.

However you found me, who you found is Angela James, executive editor of Carina Press, Harlequin's new digital-first press. I'm passionate about digital publishing, my mission is to drag people to the digital dark side, one reader (and author) at a time. I'm also Brianna's mommy. At my blog you'll get an odd mix of personal and professional posts about parenting, publishing, books, cooking, sewing and life in general. Come back often, comment frequently and go green—buy ebooks!

Please note that this is my personal blog and my opinions are neither that of Harlequin, nor representative of their opinions.


Find Me Here

First, I blog once or twice a week at theCarina Press blog, talking about the job, the authors, the books and other things Carina Press. And, of course, you can always find me on Twitter. Or Facebook, if you prefer (mostly the same content, one feeds the other). I also run the Carina Press Twitter and Facebook accounts. Social media, it's where it's at (well, it's where I'm at, anyway).
