Welcome to the February 2018 Book of Choice Giveaway Hop, hosted by FLYLeF
February is the shortest month. Considering the weather in the northern hemisphere this time of year, that’s often a blessing.
But even in a short month there’s still plenty of time to get into a few (or quite a few) good books. And with Valentine’s Day in the middle of the month, it’s certain the season for romance!
As always, there are a few books I’m particularly looking forward to this month. Right now, I’m reading Into the Fire, the second book in the marvelous military-ish SF series, Vatta’s Peace. Which is itself a sequel series to one of my favorite SF series, Vatta’s War. If you think SF needs more kick-ass female warriors, you really need to meet Kylara Vatta.
I’m also looking forward to the latest entry in a completely different series. The Cat in the Stacks cozy mystery series follows the adventures of small-town Mississippi librarian Charlie Harris and his smart, sweet and very outsized Maine Coon cat Diesel – so named because his big purr sounds like one. Charlie reads like “one of us librarians” and Diesel is always a treat. But there are always Claws for Concern in the little town of Athena Mississippi, as Charlie manages to stumble over yet another dead body.
And speaking of romance, one of my favorite authors, Maisey Yates, is opening a new series this month with Smooth Talking Cowboy. Although its not a completely new series, as Gold Valley is just down the road from Copper Ridge, and that series has certainly been a treat for both my guest reviewer Amy and for me.
