My Barnes and Noble order, cuz I just know you want to know

So, I'm going on vacation starting on Thursday until Monday. I want books for the trip, right? Well, I wasn't really going to buy anything new, but on a whim I decided to buy some from Barnes and Noble since, hopefully, they would actually get here before we left. So...*crosses fingers* here are the books I hope to see around Wednesday afternoon.

Awaken Me Darkly by Gena Showalter. I just couldn't resist it. Really, I couldn't. Bad me, but damn, it looks good. An alien hunter? Very cool.











This one I really didn't mean to get, it just sorta went into my cart. Really. After putting in Awaken Me Darkly and Urban Shaman, I didn't have enough for free shipping. And since the other books for June I wanted had 2-3 day processing time, I really didn't want to wait. So...I decided to take a chance on this one. We'll see if it was worth it. I hope so. There's a cool website about it here. I've read a few of Julie Leto's books before and enjoyed them, though they were categories.


I've been wanting C.E. Murphy's Urban Shaman for forever it seems and now it's finally out. Let's hope I soon find the time to read it. This looks like the start of a great series.










Now I just hope that these books get here by Thursday afternoon before I have to head to the airport. *crosses fingers again*

Other books I want that come out in June are:

First Date by Karen Kendall
Warprize by Elizabeth Vaughn
The Lady Lies by Samantha Saxon
Beyond the Pale by Savannah Russe
Unmasked by C.J. Barry

I'm sure I'm forgetting some, but these are the ones that I really remember wanting.

And yeah, I know the formatting is screwed up. I never know why the pictures post in slightly different formats when I do the same exact thing for each one. I'm mystified. Oh well. It still works.

The middle image doesn't have 'align="left"'. Check again. :) Thanks for the reminder, re: Urban Shaman. :D

I'm dying to get AWAKEN ME DARKLY and DIRTY LITTLE SECRETS. Another June release that I want is LETHAL by Shari Shattuck.

And Givenchy is definitely on the list.

I went to B&N yesterday to spend my $25 gc. I got this alphabet book and game for my daughter, THE LAKE HOUSE by James Patterson for dh. And, I got SIT, STAY, SLAY by Linda O Johnston and UNDEAD & UNWED by MJ for me. :)

The cover for Awaken Me Darkly IS cool!! Love it!

Nicole said...

Of course, now I want Lethal too. I didn't add it because I hadn't know anything about it. Hrmph, see what happens when people don't talk about upcoming books? *sigh*

Dying to get LETHAL by Shari Shattuck! Her first book LOADED was most excellent - sort of a crime noir book written for women :-) I hope her move to Downtown Press doesn't mean her voice will go all "chick litty."

Speaking of Downtown Press - have they gotten a new editor over there or what? They have some great looking books coming out in this summer - Shattuck, Leto, Showalter....

Nicole, love your shopping list LOL. Most excellent!

Wendy, they have the same editors at Downtown, but they are trying something new with these Bad Girl books!!! And I am so glad they are!
