My TBR Pile: And what is the bane of my existence up to today?

Me: Look don’t start.  I’m juggling 48 million things right now including Spooky Legends starting tomorrow and I don’t have the energy to deal with you.

My TBR Pile: I didn’t say anything beyond greeting you.

Me: I can practically hear you thinking what else you want to say.

My TBR Pile: Well, perhaps that’s another difference between us.  I can think a thing and not say it.  A nasty little habit I picked up called self control.

Me: This coming from someone who threatened to crush me under a pile of books last month.

My TBR Pile: I was provoked.

Me: Oh, Please.

My TBR Pile:  I would not to be so dismissive if I were you.

Me: See, now that sounds like another threat.

My TBR Pile: If you didn’t persist in burying me under stacks and stacks of books—

Me: That is a gross exaggeration.

My TBR Pile: –every time a shiny new cover catches your attention or some author comes up with yet another way to write about vampires, or werewolves, or whatever supernatural flavor of the month you are addicted to.

Me: Vampires and Fae this month, and a few shapeshifters.

My TBR Pile: A few?  When have you ever restrained yourself to a few? 

Me: If you only knew how many books I want to read but don’t.  Because of you.

My TBR Pile: And I should be grateful?  Is that it?  Because my very existence could be even more torturous than it already is?   You disgust me. 

Me: You know I’m not deliberately trying to make you suffer, you know that right?

My TBR Pile: What would ever give me that impression? 

Me:…

My TBR Pile: What was that?  Don’t mumble like an imbecile.  Whatever else you are, you’ve never struck me as stupid.  If you have something to say, than say it!

Me: I said there’s someone else!

My TBR Pile: What do you mean ‘someone else’?

Me: Wow, your eyes just went crazy wide…um, I meant that Julia and I have been talking—

My TBR Pile: Oh yes!  What pearls of wisdom did the brilliant  Julia grace us with?

Me: You shouldn’t talk about her like that.  She actually took your side.

My TBR Pile: Oh really?

Me: Yes.  And don’t sound so shocked.  Her TBR Pile is just as unhappy as you are.

My TBR Pile: Don’t. Ever. Equate. My. Unending. Torment. With. Something. As. Trivial. As. Unhappiness.

Me: Okay, I’m sorry.  Look I’m trying to tell you that things are going to get better for you.  We’ve found someone who is going to be joining the blog.  We’re in the process of training her right now.  She’s going to be helping out with reviews and posts.   I really think you’ll like her.

My TBR Pile: Forgive me if I reserve judgment.  I know your favors too well to trust that this one won’t come with a big fat catch. 

Me: Suit yourself.  Something tells me we’ll be having a much different—and hopefully less hostile—conversation next month.

My TBR Pile: Why don’t you go hold your breath?

Much Ado About Vampires (Dark Ones, #9)
by Katie MacAlister

Bitter at first bite…

Corazon Ferreira is one heck of a jaded woman. Not only did her husband dump her for a pretty, vivacious blonde, but her sister has lost her mind and married a vampire. Worse, it turns out that Cora herself was a vampire’s mate in a past life…the very same vampire she witnessed killing someone.

If only Cora hadn’t inadvertently been caught up in the ill-laid plans of a reanimated corpse and its master, she could deal with the distractingly gorgeous vampire. But it’s only Alec who stands between her and those who threaten her existence, and there’s only so much temptation a woman can bear before she starts taking her heart as seriously as her head…

Radiant Desire (Handmaid’s Seduction, #1)
by Inara Scott

The object of every man’s fantasy just lost her wings…

Kaia Verde is one of the four Faerie Handmaids of Zafira, Queen of the Fey. To redress an ancient wrong done to Zafira by a human king, the Handmaids make sport of mortal men, seducing and humiliating them. When Kaia sets out to seduce Garrett Jameson, but ends up being the one surrendering to pleasure, Zafira is furious. Kaia’s punishment is simple: make Garrett fall in love with her by the summer solstice, then break his heart, or face eternity without her wings—or her soul. To make the task harder, Zafira tells Kaia she cannot use her faerie magic or charm to lure Garrett into her bed.
…and now she’s losing her heart…

Kaia thinks her task will be relatively easy—as a faerie, she understands lust, and can love be much different? But once she is living among the humans, Kaia discovers the race she once disparaged is far more complex and beautiful than she imagined. She learns before she can break Garrett’s heart, she must…more

Anthropology professor Roark Wallace can’t risk news be­ing made of a Bigfoot sighting in the north woods—not with a local pack of werewolves to protect. Disproving the evidence should be easy, but ignoring Abby is not. Her fiery red hair makes him want to sit up and beg, and this obvious attraction is making the pack suspicious.…

The Dark at the End
by F. Paul Wilson

Bound by his promise to Glaeken, Jack has refrained from making any direct moves against Rasalom.  But things have changed so there’s nothing holding Jack in check any longer.  Other changes are occurring as well.  Jack is healing at an accelerated rate–much like Glaeken did when he was immortal. This can only mean that Glaeken’s time is almost up and when he dies, Jack takes his place.

Rasalom continues to plot against the Lady.  Twice she has died and returned; a third time and she will be gone, leaving a clear path for the Otherness to infiltrate this reality.  But Ernst Drexler, formerly Rasalom’s go-to guy for logistical support, fears he will be left out in the cold when the Change comes. He forms an uneasy alliance with Jack, who is preparing to face their old enemy.  

Meanwhile, Dawn Pickering is searching for her supposedly dead baby.  The trail leads her to a mansion in a remote Long Island coastal town, where she discovers a truth she could have never imagined. …more

Eyes to See (Jeremiah Hunt, #1)
by Joseph Nassise

In an urban fantasy that charts daring new territory in the field, Jeremiah Hunt has been broken by a malevolent force that has taken his young daughter and everything else of value in his life: his marriage, his career, his reputation. Desperate to reclaim what he has lost, Hunt finally turns to the supernatural for justice.

Abandoning all hope for a normal life, he enters the world of ghosts and even more dangerous entities from beyond the grave. Sacrificing his normal sight so that he can see the souls of the dead and the powers that stalk his worst nightmares, Hunt embarks upon a strange new career—a pariah among the living; a scourge among the dead; doomed to walk between the light of day and the deepest darkness beyond night.

His love for his departed daughter sustains him when all is most hopeless, but Hunt is cursed by something more evil than he can possibly imagine. As he descends into the maelstrom of his terrifying quest, he discovers that even his deepest fears are but prelude to yet darker deeds by a powerful entity from…more

Aloha from Hell (Sandman Slim, #3)
by Richard Kadrey

All is not right in L A. Lucifer is back in Heaven, God’s on vacation, and an insane killer mounts a war against both Heaven and Hell. There’s only one thing Stark can do—go back to the place where it all began, the place he thought he’d never have to see again. Hell.

That’s just step one in a sure-to-be-suicidal plan that includes rescuing his long-lost love, stopping an insane serial killer, and preventing Heaven and Hell from completely destroying the other—or being destroyed by the demonic Kissi.

Sandman Slim has done the impossible before. But even for him, that’s a bad list of business to undertake. And it’s only the beginning.

Dearly, Departed
by Lia Habel

Love can never die.

Love conquers all, so they say. But can Cupid’s arrow pierce the hearts of the living and the dead—or rather, the undead? Can a proper young Victorian lady find true love in the arms of a dashing zombie?

The year is 2195. The place is New Victoria—a high-tech nation modeled on the manners, mores, and fashions of an antique era. A teenager in high society, Nora Dearly is far more interested in military history and her country’s political unrest than in tea parties and debutante balls. But after her beloved parents die, Nora is left at the mercy of her domineering aunt, a social-climbing spendthrift who has squandered the family fortune, and now plans to marry her niece off for money. For Nora, no fate could be more horrible—until she’s nearly kidnapped by an army of walking corpses.

Lord of the Wolfyn (Royal House of Shadows, #3)
by Jessica Andersen

Once upon a time…the Blood Sorcerer vanquished the kingdom of Elden.

To save their children, the queen scattered them to safety and the king filled them with vengeance.

Only a magical timepiece connects the four royal heirs…and time is running out.…

For practical Reda Weston, nothing could explain how reading a sexy version of "Little Red Riding Hood" catapulted her into another realm—face-to-fang with the legendary wolf-creature who seduced women. A wolf who transformed into a dark, virile man….

Dayn cursed the Sorcerer that turned him wolfyn and damned him to a lonely fate. As a beast, he mated with women to gain strength.

Strength he needed to rescue his royal parents. But as a man, he craved Reda’s heated, sizzling touch. With little time left, Dayn had to either embrace his wolf to save his kingdom…or fight it to save his woman.

Shattered by recent nightmarish events, Hawke feels his bond with his animal spirit weakening—and once it breaks, he’s finished.

Though gravely damaged, Hawke is the only one who can end Faith’s slavery and protect the Feral Warriors from Maxim’s evil designs. But first they both must embrace the wild . . . and surrender body and soul to a forbidden, all-consuming ecstasy.

There can only be one allegiance.
It’s her time to choose.

For just as long, she’s been in love with Kyol, the king’s sword-master—and relationships between humans and fae are forbidden.

But any hope for a normal life is shattered when she’s captured by Aren, the fierce and uncompromising rebel leader. He teaches her the forbidden fae language and tells her dark truths about the Court, all to persuade her to turn against the king. Time is running out, and as the fight starts to claim human lives, McKenzie has no choice but to decide once and for all whom to trust and where she ultimately stands in the face of a cataclysmic civil war.

Have you ever had the feeling that you’ve lived another life? Been somewhere that has felt totally familiar, even though you’ve never been there before, or felt that you know someone well, even though you are meeting them for the first time? It happens. In 2073 on the remote and secretive island of Blessed, where rumour has it that no one ages and no children are born, a visiting journalist, Eric Seven, and a young local woman known as Merle are ritually slain. Their deaths echo a moment ten centuries before, when, in the dark of the moon, a king was slain, tragically torn from his queen. Their souls search to be reunited, and as mother and son, artist and child, forbidden lovers, victims of a vampire they come close to finding what they’ve lost. In a novel comprising seven parts, each influenced by a moon – the flower moon, the harvest moon, the hunter’s moon, the blood moon – this is the story of Eric and Merle whose souls have been searching for each other since their untimely parting. …more

To make matters worse, just when she’s about to give her heart to Derek, a half-fairy, he starts pulling away.  When Lucas, a werewolf with whom Kylie shares a secret past, returns, Kylie’s feels more conflicted than ever.

Frost (Stork, #2)
by Wendy Delsol

In this sequel to STORK, Katla Leblanc has to employ her grit, spirit, and special gifts to rescue the boy she loves.

After the drama of finding out that she’s a Stork, a member of an ancient and mystical order of women, and that her boyfriend, Jack, is a descendent of the Winter People able to control the weather, Katla Leblanc is delighted when all signs point to a busy and peaceful Christmas. That is, until the snowstorm Jack summons as a gift to Katla turns into the storm of the century, attracting Brigid, a gorgeous scientist who, in turn, attracts Jack. Between the school play, a bedridden, pregnant mother’s to-do lists, and keeping an eye on her aging grandfather, Katla doesn’t have time to question Brigid’s motives or deal with Jack’s increasingly cold behavior. But Katla’s suspicions mount when Jack joins Brigid on a research expedition to Greenland, and when the two of them go missing, it becomes clear that Katla is the only one who can save her beloved Jack from the Snow Queen who holds him prisoner. Adventure, romance, and myth combine in this winter escapade for teens who like a bit of fire with their ice.

Beautiful Chaos (Caster Chronicles, #3)
by Kami Garcia, Margaret Stohl

Ethan Wate thought he was getting used to the strange, impossible events happening in Gatlin, his small Southern town. But now that Ethan and Lena have returned home, strange and impossible have taken on new meanings. Swarms of locusts, record-breaking heat, and devastating storms ravage Gatlin as Ethan and Lena struggle to understand the impact of Lena’s Claiming. Even Lena’s family of powerful Supernaturals is affected – and their abilities begin to dangerously misfire. As time passes, one question becomes clear: What – or who – will need to be sacrificed to save Gatlin?

For Ethan, the chaos is a frightening but welcome distraction. He’s being haunted in his dreams again, but this time it isn’t by Lena – and whatever is haunting him is following him out of his dreams and into his everyday life. Even worse, Ethan is gradually losing pieces of himself – forgetting names, phone numbers, even memories. He doesn’t know why, and most days he’s too afraid to ask.

Sometimes there isn’t just one answer or one choice. Sometimes there’s no going back. And this time there won’t be a happy ending.

Hush, Hush (Hush, Hush: The Graphic Novel, #1)
by Becca Fitzpatrick, Jennyson Rosero

For Nora Grey, romance was not part of the plan. She’s never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how much her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her. Not until Patch came along. With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Nora is drawn to him against her better judgment. But after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora’s not sure who to trust. Patch seems to be everywhere she is, and to know more about her than her closest friends. She can’t decide whether she should fall into his arms or run and hide. And when she tries to seek some answers, she finds herself near a truth that is way more unsettling than anything Patch makes her feel. For Nora is right in the middle of an ancient battle between the immortal and those that have fallen – and, when it comes to choosing sides, the wrong choice will cost her life!

The Scorpio Races
by Maggie Stiefvater

It happens at the start of every November: the Scorpio Races. Riders attempt to keep hold of their water horses long enough to make it to the finish line. Some riders live. Others die.

At age nineteen, Sean Kendrick is the returning champion. He is a young man of few words, and if he has any fears, he keeps them buried deep, where no one else can see them.

Puck Connolly is different. She never meant to ride in the Scorpio Races. But fate hasn’t given her much of a chance. So she enters the competition — the first girl ever to do so. She is in no way prepared for what is going to happen.

Swear (Swoon, #2)
by Nina Malkin

A promise broken. A bond betrayed.

It’s been six months since ghost-turned golem Sinclair Youngblood Powers confessed his love, stole Dice’s heart, and disappeared from Swoon, perhaps from existence. Despite the hurt, Dice has been moving steadily toward ordinary. Dreams of Sin still plague and pleasure her sleep, and the mark of Sin’s love remains on her skin, still sore. But Dice has been throwing herself into music, finding solace in song and sometimes even in the arms of her band mate, Tosh. Life seems almost…normal. The last thing Dice wants is to mess with anything remotely supernatural. But when her best friend’s boyfriend goes missing, Dice has no choice but to become very much involved. She knows that his disappearance was no accident, and it somehow has everything to do with Sin. Because Dice can feel it: Sin is back. And the promises and deceptions he left in his wake have returned to haunt him.

What do you do when an oath of devotion threatens to destroy the one you love?

  1. Rain Maiden

    I would love to have at least one month, in which I found nothing interesting. Never happens. 🙂 By any chance is Lockdown on that mouthy TBR pile? I can't wait to read your thoughts on it.

  2. Abigail

    Rain Maiden – You and me both. Never gonna happen, but it's fun to think about. Sadly I don't have LOCKDOWN on My TBR Pile. They didn't send me a copy, and if it doesn't get sent, I usually don't get to read it. Never enough time. Did you read it?

  3. Rain Maiden

    I was lucky enough to win a copy of Lockdown, but it has not arrived yet. Well they should send you a copy damn it! I will probably break down and get it though. So many books..so little time.

  4. Julia

    I'm really quite worried about you mentioning me to your TBR pile. I mean, next thing you know it may want to talk to *my* TBR pile. There's definite potential for revolution there, I just hope neither one has access to Twitter.

  5. Jess Haines

    Sadface. No Werewives listed? It comes out October 25th.

    Still a great post! Lots of 'em caught my eye in this post. Looks like I'm going to go broke ordering more books, lol.

    <3,
    -J

  6. Abigail

    Julia – I'm sorry about that now too. My TBR Pile does tend to fixate on things…whatever happens, I'm not sure it would be a good idea to have out piles talk. They'd probably end up plotting together to kill us both.

    Jess – Ack! I can't believe I missed THE REAL WEREWIVES OF VAMPIRE COUNTY! That should not have happened and I updating the post now!

  7. Bookworm85

    Ooooh! I'm excited for a lot of these books to come out, I've been anticipating Dearly, Departed, Carrier of the Mark AND Destined! And oh boy, your TBR pile has quite a huge grudge still. Still it made me smile while reading your convo with your TBR pile. Mine gets bigger everyday as I find more books that interest me!

  8. Abigail

    Bookworm85 – I have a suspicion that all are TBR piles just sit around thinking of ways to kill us…and we just make it worse by letting them get bigger and bigger 🙂

  9. Gidget

    I love that you provide such a wonder list. It makes it easier for me to load up my shelfari TBR list 🙂 Thanks a million!
