    Phew. 2010 will be a very happy year for Urban Fantasy enthusiasts.

    The book I am most looking forward to is, hands down, 'Silver Borne' by Patricia Briggs. Knowing that Ms. Briggs won't be releasing the 3rd 'Alpha & Omega' until 2011, I am desperate for her one and only werewolf book to be released next year! March 30th is so far away!

    Sheesh I haven't read any of those authors but Patricia Briggs and LJ Smith. Guess I better get started ASAP..lol. I really love Sherrilyn Kenyon and her Dark-Hunter Series and The League Series. I cant get enough of her. The up coming books released in 2010 I'm looking forward to reading are:
    -The Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare 9/7/10
    -No Mercy(Dark-Hunter Series) by Sherrilyn Kenyon 8/4/10
    -Fire and Ice(The Leauge Series) by Sherrilyn Kenyon 7/1/10

    Oh the list of books I've yet to buy…

    I like me some Kitty (Vaughn), some Kate (Andrews) and some Mercy (Briggs). I'm itching for Shift (Vincent), desperate for Roadkill (Thurman) and longing for the last Darkest Powers (Armstrong).

    Too bad they're not available now or I'd be asking Santa for them!
