What’s On My (Mostly Virtual) Nightstand? AKA The Sunday Post 7-22-12

Are these the dog days of summer? Is that the explanation? Or did I accidentally manage to give myself a break?

The official definition of the Dog Days calls them the hottest and sultriest days of summer — July and August in this part of the world. It’s been plenty hot enough to qualify, at least here in Atlanta.

This week will be a writing and reviewing week. A chance for me to review some of the books I’ve finished but haven’t written up. And to send out the questions for lots of upcoming author interviews.

Next week, I’m part of a Goddess Fish tour for Jamie Salisbury’s Timeless Sojourn. And there are a few other books coming out next week that caught my eye when they appeared at Netgalley.

Brenda Novak is starting a contemporary romance series, in the small town of Whiskey Creek. Her romantic suspense has always been highly recommended, but it was already too many books in for me to think about getting into it. This new series is, well, new, so I have a chance to start at the beginning. The prequel novella, titled When We Touch, comes out next week.

On the paranormal side, I’m looking forward to Kendra Leigh Castle’s Shadow Rising, the third book in her Dark Dynasties series. I loved the first two books (Dark Awakening and Midnight Reckoning) so I have high hopes for this one. Early comments say I won’t be disappointed.

A Lady Can Never Be Too Curious by Mary Wine looks like a walk on the steampunk wild side. I’ll admit that I picked this one up for the title alone. But then, I’m always up for a good steampunk romp.

Tomorrow is still Monday, which means that Ebook Review Central will be back. This week it’s time for the six-headed feature. Amber Quill, Astraea Preaa, Curiosity Quills, Liquid Silver, Red Sage and Riptide all had their hits and misses in this feature. Read tomorrow’s ERC to find out which titles racked up the most and best reviews.

  1. It feels like the dog day of summer for sure. I am playing catch up after being away for so long. I still feel like i am playing catch up.

  2. So I have never read Steampunk. I am a huge Historical Romance lover and I just started the genre. It makes me want to break out and try other genres so steampunk is on my list of genres to try. Please keep me posted on how you enjoy A Lady Can Never be to Curious. Great Haul!
