oh goodies :)

Hello everyone, it’s FRIDAY!! YAY!! I hope everyone has something good planned for the weekend…. on a personal note, it is my (maternal) grandparents 50th anniversary… Lord, I dunno how they did it, but they are some wonderful people so I figured I’d share that lil tid-bit with you guys, as tonight I will be celebrating with my family! here dey is 🙂

NOW, we GOTTA get on to the book stuff 🙂

First, I was completely taken by this book I read for one of my goodread groups I am in… Let’s talk about this one 🙂

Howl

Now, I fanatically love werewolves, but this one, I dunno why it’s so special-IT JUST IS!! So, I think I should say that I am still begging this author to make sure she keeps this book going (as a series, anything)… I JUST NEED IT… so here’s all my goodies for you to see… 🙂 First, I think I would give 6 PAWS if my scale would allow, but it only goes to 5, soooo……

HERE’S AN EXCERPT FROM HOWL–READ IT– http://annalisegrey.wordpress.com/2012/01/13/world-apart-excerpt-from-howl/

and the author’s own favorite quote from the books : “Ghosts are a perfect example of how the human world is limited by its own knowledge. Your kind doesn’t believe in them because you can’t calculate the human spirit. But the spirit is just another form of energy that you haven’t been able to quantify yet.” 

On another set of good news… I got an EXCITING e-mail this morning from Ms. Jenn Bennett… I got an ARC copy of 

Summoning the Night (Arcadia Bell, #2)

*screams, flails arms, jumps up and down, giggling in fits* I AM SO PUMPED!!! I will be doing a ARC release review a few days before the publishing date -APRIL 24, 2012- and let me tell you, this just made my day 🙂 I love when I get these kind of surprises 🙂 THANK YOU SO MUCH MS. BENNETT!!!! I just hope I can do a review that is worthy of her books 🙂 (click the picture to see goodreads page) 

Another set of good news-I’m just full of it today, ain’t I- I am a random buzzer member and I happen to see this book and author question/chat…

hehehehehe yeah it’s gunna be hot!!! so, now 🙂 I’ve gotten all my goodies out of my system! 

 

I also asked a question on my last blog post that a few have answered… so I thought you should like to see what was said 🙂

Jean S. says: ( she is a blog follower–yay for her!!)

I always like to know what other authors/books an author recommends (preferably in the same genre- urban fantasy, paranormal romance, young adult, etc.). I’ve found some authors I love through other authors.

Thanks so much Jean S. for this awesome question!! & Miss Tammy is Tammy Blackwell who wrote the Timber wolves series 🙂 

Miss_Tammy says:

Oh! Let me! Let me! (Sorry. My day job is as a librarian. I get really excited about recommending other authors/books!)

YA paranormal/urban fantasy:
Kelley Armstrong
Cassandra Clare
Carrie Ryan
Samantha Young

Adult paranormal/urban fantasy:
Kelley Armstrong
Patricia Briggs (I also love Mercy, but I’m soooo excited about a new Charles & Anna book!)
Ilona Andrews (both series are great)
Nalini Singh (even if she put out a new book every week it wouldn’t be enough to keep me happy!)

Isn’t that just a fantastic list 🙂 thank you so much Miss Tammy!!! 

so if you are an author… what do you like to recommend to read to your fans? feel free to post that answer 🙂

I wish you all a happy weekend and as always… Later my reading gators 🙂

    Yay! I was mentioned! Anyway, I’m so jealous that you have Summoning the Night. I already have that one preordered. Can’t wait! Congrats on winning Daughter of the Centaurs! That one sounds really interesting. I look forward to your review. Oh and I added Howl to my massive TBR pile. You’re killing me here… : )

    P.S. I found your blog through the Goodreads Paranormal Romance and Urban Fantasy group. Actually, I think you posted it on the Facebook page. Glad I found you. : )
