Throwback Thursday (19)

Let's talk about those books already on the shelves, yours or the stores.

I have a post for books I'm looking forward to coming out;
Looking Forward To...
But what about all those wonderful books that are ALREADY on the shelves.
Whether it be on your shelf waiting to be read or on the shelves in the stores waiting for you to give it a good home.

So, I thought I would share a book a week that is just waiting for me to travel through it's world.

Now... where do I start? Lets go by Published Date on the books...

This Week:

What drew me to this book you ask?  Well, I started reading Marjorie M. Liu's Hunter Kiss series and loved it.  I loved the whole idea of the tattoos being demons and coming to life at night.  I loved the writing and well the whole setup.   So, I've read all the books that are now out and found out there was a short story about the main character in this anthology.  And as many of you know I LOVE my anthologies too!  So I thought this was a win win book.  Now, I just need to get to reading it.

Goodreads Synopsis:
New York Times bestselling authors Maggie Shayne and Marjorie Liu join two hot talents in an anthology of all-new sexy paranormal romance.

New York Times bestselling authors Maggie Shayne and Marjorie M. Liu, and sizzling newcomers Alyssa Day and Meljean Brook discover the wild instinct in everyone with four all-new stories of feral heat. Fans will get swept away by the passions in the unfathomable depths of Atlantis; they'll follow the shadows that stalk both the living and the undead in a world of vampires and guardian angels; they'll enter the forbidden world of the demon horde and their willing victims; and they'll be privy to the secrets of a beautiful animal-whisperer who's drawn closer to the most suspect of all male animals-man.

I think I've heard about this short story by Majorie M Liu - is it the story where Hunter Kiss series started?

Ohh Meljean Brook, I do liker her stories. But it might be about the series I have not read

Nikola said...

Is this guy an angel or a butterfly? Either way, you know I wanna read this. :)

Jackie said...

I haven't read Liu or Brook, but have them on the radar. As for my picks, Paranormalcy by Kiersten White, anything by Jeaniene Frost, and so many more (those are the ones still at the store...I don't even want to think about the neglected books at home :-o )

Oh and I'd have to add that title with a smexy guy on the front doesn't hurt. :)

Melissa (My words and pages) said...

Mel - Hi! ANd you are right on! It is the short story that started the Hunter Kiss series. :) That's in part why I want to read it. :) Thank you! And with the way today is going I'll be by but it's looking like tomorrow. I hope you don't mind. :)

Blodeuedd - Yes. I've heard great things of Meljean Brook as well. But haven't started her books yet. I'm not sure what the story is about from Meljean. Hope you enjoy if you get it. :)

Nicola! Hi! Hope you are well. :) Oh I think he is an angel, but he is very nice looking. :) Oh, I hope you get it and enjoy the short stories in it.

Jackie - Oh, Paranormalcy is on my want list. And Jeaniene Frost too! lol. And yes, it breaks my heart thinking of all these books every week I have here but can't seem to get too.
