  • TheSeaThyMistressFavorite Books of 2011

    It’s that time of year again – time to reflect on favorites of 2011. I always have a terrible time with this because it’s so hard to pick books with all their different strengths and weaknesses, and this year I had a really terrible time because there were 12 books I wanted to stuff into the top 10. That’s with books divided into a top 10 published in 2011 and a top 5 of older books, so I’d say I […]

  • A Dance With Dragons by George R. R. MartinExcerpt from The Winds of Winter by George R. R. Martin

    As a Christmas gift to his fans, George R. R. Martin put up a sample chapter from The Winds of Winter. It will be at the beginning of this book, but it actually takes place before the end of A Dance With Dragons. Enjoy!

  • Range of Ghosts by Elizabeth BearMost Anticipated Books of 2012

    This is the actual complete list, not just the books that have covers and descriptions already that I’ve posted about so far. I think I might just keep “Books of 2012″ going throughout 2012 as more information comes out on the books coming out later in the year and then just keep going with “Books of 2013″ and so on. As usual, I’m sure more books will come to my attention throughout the year that will look interesting, too, but […]

  • Smugglivus 2011Guest Posting for Smugglivus!

    Today I am over at one of my favorite blogs, The Book Smugglers, talking about some of my favorite books of 2011, which I was lucky enough to have a HORRIBLE time narrowing down this year. Since I talked about 8 books with 3 honorable mentions narrowed down from 5 I’d been considering, I’m still not sure which other 2 books are going to end up on my top 10 list I’ll put up here! While you’re over there, I […]

  • Magic Gifts by Ilona AndrewsFree Kate Daniels Novella by Ilona Andrews

    For Christmas, Ilona Andrews has a free Kate Daniels novella, Magic Gifts, available to download for a limited time! It comes right after the latest book in the series, Magic Slays, and crosses over with Gunmetal Magic, the novel about Andrea that will be coming out next year. This novella will also be included with Gunmetal Magic when it is released, but for now it can be downloaded in several different formats to read as an ebook. It is only […]

  • Discount Armageddon by Seanan McGuireThe Leaning Pile of Books

    Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! Hope you are having a wonderful holiday season. There will probably be a Christmas edition of this next week, but since that’s today I haven’t found out what the books are, if any. In the meantime, one ARC did show up that I was as excited about as I could possibly be since it is one of my most anticipated releases of next year. Discount Armageddon by Seanan McGuire Eeeee! It’s the first book in […]
