And looking closely at a few of the others..

Thanks for the round - I see a whole lot of blogs I have to go visit..


MrsMixx said...

i love your post! it's always the best posts to get all the info in one place! love it love it!

Leontine said...

Interesting discussion at bookbinge both about paid reviews as well as the BBAW.

I see books I have ordered like Annette McCleave. I will have her over at my blog for an interview too, she's my monthly pick :)

The Time Raiders series is one that also caught my attention 6 weeks ago and I have a giveaway and interview later this month about this very intriguing concept.

I have the first in G.A Aiken's series and look forward to meeting her dragons :)

Blodeuedd made me aware of Hunger Games by Suzanne colins and I have ordered me a copy. I see bk 2 has arrived already LOL

Must Love Hellhounds is one of the very few anthology books I look forward to reading.

Donna, I loved your post and have a bit of link hopping to look forward to. Thanks for all the effort!

Michelle Greathouse said...


Wonderful post!! I have not read the Aiken series - but have them on my wish list.

I had no idea Ann Aguirre wrote under another name - I will have to check out Skin Game. :)

Thanks for the link to my review of Intertwined.

Hubby told me about Disney buying Marvel - I wonder how that is going to effect Universal Studios because they have the Hulk and Spiderman attractions.

I love you blog anagram - mine was crazy - Michelle's Book Blog became Hello! Boob Slick goodness. LOL

Have a wonderful day my friend. :)


SusiSunshine said...

Your blog anagram just cracked me up. Spit my coffee on the carpet.LOL

So many good books coming out! And I still got so many at home. I definitely need more time.
Love you Post!

Stacy~ said...

Wow, these are amazing posts! I always find out something when I stop by here. Excellent information. You really put a lot of work into your posts, and we appreciate it :)

Chris said...

Thanks for the mention, and of course, for all the great info in your Tuesday posts! *gets back to work*

Marnie said...

Thanks for the heads up... I can't wait to get some of these books.

Unknown said...

Thanks for all your work on these posts... lots of great info.

Donna said...

E.H. - Today was a big release day. Several on the list I'll be getting for sure.

pattepoilue - Thanks! *blushes*

Leontine - Looks like I'll be hanging out your place this month. :)

Michelle - You're welcome, I figure if I link others' reviews on new release day, it's another way to meet new bloggers and help decide if the book is for you or not. My son thinks the new ownership for Marvel will be a good thing, he's a big comic book fan of Marvel. - LOL on your anagram name!!!

SusiSunshine - Yikes! I know what you mean about new books vs what you have to read already but who can resist? ;)

Stacy - Thanks, I appreciate you telling me, gives me more motivation. :)

Chris - You're welcome! Glad you could "sneak" away for bit and visit. *grins*

MarnieColette & Shellie - You're welcome!! Hope you both find something in this mountain of information.

Smokinhotbooks said...

Love G.A Aiken aka Shelley Laruenston - I feel like I've been hiding under a rock this week, glad I stopped by so I can rush to the bookstore and spend all my hard earned money on books *sigh*

Donna said...

K.C. - I plan on getting to Ms. Aiken's books in the very near future, many people have said so many very delicious things about this series. What happened to the book budget? Here today, gone tomorrow? LOL!

Keri said...

Hey Donna, I have an award for you!

Donna said...

Thank you Keri! That's super nice of you! :)

SciFiGuy said...

Donna I love the way you linked the current release list to reviews, what a terrific idea (and of course thanks for all the links). And a great news recap to boot. I'll be linking to you this weekend. I tried the anagram for "Doug Knipe - Scifiguy" and got ... wait for it ... "YOUNG PIG IF I SUCKED"

Donna said...

Doug - Thanks! I've always wanted to see something like this on the new releases.

OMG! Your anagram is crazy, not sure what to think of it. I interpreted mine as a crazy, stinky person with uncomfortable panties. *grins*

Janicu said...

I also like the way you linked to early reviews of these books. Helps! :)

Donna said...

Janicu - Thanks! That's why I put them there. :)
