Lusting For Covers~ When We Wake by Karen Healey

PhotobucketThank you to The Book Queen for Lusting for Covers meme!

Last week I picked a paranormal romance with a yummy hunk cover but this week I’ve picked the other type of cover that often appeals to me. A fantasy style cover! Yes. I really am I geek and I love to read sci-fi and fantasy fiction.

When We Wake by Karen Healey will be out on March 5th and I plan to get it. Take a look at that cover! *points down* I love the frosty colors and the frosty girl. I want to know more about her.

New Releases, December 18th

I really, really need to learn to manage my time better… *YAWN* it’s the middle of the night again and I’m scrolling through Tuesdays’, Today’s! New books… And half of them aren’t showing the covers! *head/desk* I’m a cover junky and I WANT the covers… But It’s too late right now to fix them all. I do like seeing books sorted by date though, which was one of the major reasons I started on this journey. 😉

The middle of the month seems to have fewer new releases. Click HERE to see all my database lists for today… over 400 print/digital releases.  There are a lot of series romance titles and Montlake publishing today.

Lots of duplicate titles because of the tricky fact that they have different identifying ISBNs *sigh* Use the Advanced Search function to make the list more manageable.

Click HERE to see only the 100-ish ebooks

Click HERE to see just the 170 print titles


I have a few contests!

Also, Indie Author and birthday girl Tracy Ellen is on my virtual couch today in what just might be my wackiest interview yet! Click HERE to see for yourself

Queen of Tarts Review

of Clutch by J.A. Huss


Clutch is a fast paced, addicting, science fiction adventure that hooked me from the start. When I first read about the book and saw that the heroine was 19 years old I assumed it was a YA novel. Ummm… It’s NOT! Junco is a damaged, tough, messed up cookie and she has a mouth on her like a sailor. She swears all the time. :p There’s also violence and adult situations (not as much as I’d hoped for :p but the beginnings of a romance).

Junco’s tough, she takes a lickin’ and keeps on tickin’. I liked Junco, actually I adored Junco! This is a first person novel… That’s not my favorite perspective normally, but for this story I was immediately sucked into Junco’s head and her world and held on tight for the ride. This is an adventure story, a vengeance story and a mystery and even the sparks of a love story… Its a story with science, politics, war, lies, intrigue and destiny. The world building felt so organic and real. The pieces of her life are stacked up naturally and never felt like “So Bob,” kind of details. 🙂 Everything seemed to flow and because her world is not so unfamiliar from ours I was able to easily suspend disbelief and enjoy this tale of humans in a possible future, aliens with wings, gene splicing and cloning and a host of other fascinating details.
