Wishlist: Holiday Edition #2

Hey Everyone!

It’s Stella the Christmas Lover (oh yeah, anyone who knows me would agree I should have definitely gone with that name ;-))! So here I am with still more holiday read recommendations (that you could read for the BLI Holiday Reading Challenge *hint hint*) , something for everyone (and don’t worry there are so many terrific holiday releases that I’ll be back soon with more holiday wishlist items lol):

For the steamy lover:

Merry Sexy Christmas by Beverly Jenkins, Kayla Perrin, Maureen Smith

…Overtime Love by Beverly Jenkins

Drew Davis’s goal is to buy the semipro football team where he is general manager. But the owner’s grandaughter, Tasha Bloom, unexpectedly inherits it first.

Wishlist: Holiday Edition #1

Hey Everyone!

Sure, you might find that it is still a bit early to think about Christmas and the holidays (though some of my fellow Book Lovers myself included don’t think such a thing is possible. Seriously, I count back the days ’till Christmas as soon as January rolls around ), but since there are so many of us we have to start early for everyone to get a chance to show their holiday wishlists. And who knows maybe you’ll get inspired for some gift ideas, either for yourself or your loved ones.

So here are some holiday themed stories that caught my eye recently and that I can’t wait to get my hands on:

No Mistletoe Required by Jeanette Murray

Dan Beckins isn’t sure how he let his best friend con him into volunteering to build Santa’s Winter Wonderland at the local hospital. He’s got no problems …

Wishlist: The Tickle my Funny Bone Edition

Laughter is awesome, cathartic. To me, it’s not exactly the same thing as happiness, though the two do intersect to a great degree (the former can be a manifestation of the latter). You can be sad, afraid, angry, solemn, and still laugh. Nervous laughter, frustrated laughter, hysterical laughter, subtle laughter, amused laughter. Since laughter can incite a measure of happiness, even if momentary, I love to find it in the stories I read. Sometimes a good, dark and broody story is perfect for curling up on a rainy day…but not today. Having things to laugh about feel like a great propect right about now. Goodness knows that these days, we can all stand to have moments of laughter. Below are just a few books, in nonfiction and fiction, that I wish to read as soon as possible–either once I get the time, or once the book is released. It’s …

My Wishlist: The Spinoff Edition

We all have our favorite series, right? Whether the series is coming to a graceful end (farewell, dear Sirantha) or chugging along merrily for the unforeseeable future (Eve and Roarke, looking great in your 30s–books, that is), those really memorable ones stick with us for a long time, sometimes making us wish we could stay in those worlds forever.

Fortunately, it seems like an increasing number of book series are somehow spinoffs of other popular, beloved works. It’s kind of like the best of both worlds, in my opinion. You get to have some familiar places or faces come up (whether friend or foe), yet you get to experience many things with a fresh pair of eyes. Some of the announced spinoffs have be so excited that I’m positively salivating for them with almost a year left to go. Here’s a smattering of some of the most exciting of these, …

My Wishlist: The Absolutely-Must-Have-Now Urban Fantasy Edition

Hi Everyone!

It’s been a long time since I last did a My Wishlist post as I was trying to be good and not make my pleading TBR pile explode, but you know how it is with us bookaholics, we just can’t stop or say no for that matter… So take a look at all the new releases I have been coveting and yearning for, I know that my creaking TBR pile will understand and be happy to welcome these new additions, I mean who wouldn’t be ecstatic to get their hands on these fantastic books?

So let me show you which books I can’t wait to add to my shelves!

Shadow Bound by Rachel Vincent

My Wishlist: The “Hot Summer Reads” Edition

Hello Book Lovers! Happy this week is slowly reaching its end and the weekend is so close? I know I am!

For this week, I have prepared something special for you! A post that takes my imagination to gorgeous beaches and sunny days! With the weather, at least here in Greece,  getting hotter and hotter, I just can’t help but feel that summer is here, a bit sooner than we all expected – but hey, I’m not complaining – and envision long days at a beach, lounging under the hot sun along with some very hot reads! I don’t know about you, but for me, one of the best ways to spend a day at the beach is with a nice book. And here you can safely assume that I’m not that big on summer sports as most of my friends are, so, that gives me plenty of …

Post Thumbnail of My Wishlist: The "You Haven't Read That Yet??" Edition

My Wishlist: The “You Haven’t Read That Yet??” Edition

Greetings, fellow book lovers!

I’m coming to you today with a terrible confession. Though I’ve read hundreds of genre fiction books over the last few years, there are a few wildly successful/popular/beloved books and series that I’ve just not even touched. In such cases, when I mention to someone, “yeah, I’d really like to read that one,” I get a blank stare or disbelieving reply. “Uh…how can you not have read this yet?!”

I still can’t account for why that is. There are certain authors and series that I know I’ll love, if not from the first book, then after a few installments (such was my love affair with Anita Blake, from about book 3 to…maybe 16).

Hopefully, admitting the glaring holes in my reading resume will serve as the motivator needed to check the series out. With any luck (read: concerted effort), the following books will be read in no time.

My Wishlist: The Stuck on my Shelf (Romance) Edition

I’m sure this is nothing new, but I am seriously behind on my reading…seriously. And in this state (add in the necessary “perpetual” there), there are books that I’ve had for a while that are just taking up room on my shelves, waiting for the time when I can give them my undivided attention. (Don’t tell the books, but it’s not anywhere in the foreseeable future )

Add to this dilemma, that winter is traditionally romanticized by the ability to “curl up with a good book”,  especially a romance novel,  said books must be feeling even sadder. With Valentine’s Day not too far around the corner, I thought I would share the romance books that are quietly demanding to be read. I may have to break down and read at least one of these during the month of February…

The Mistress’ House by Leigh Michaels

First in a smart, …

My Wishlist: Most Awaited 2012 Titles Part 2

Well, since this is a part two of my previous week’s wishlist post, you do well to imagine that just one post couldn’t possibly include every title I’m drooling over this year… And how could I ever include in just one post all the amazing books I can’t wait to read this year. And since it’s only January this means that I still haven’t been informed of all – scratch that – most of the upcoming releases of this year… But I’ll try to refrain myself and just let you know some more about a few other books that I just die to read!

Pure by Jennifer L. Armentrout

There is need. And then there is Fate…
Being destined to become some kind of supernatural electrical outlet isn’t exactly awesome–especially when Alexandria’s “other half” is everywhere she goes. Seth’s in her training room, outside her classes, and keeps showing up …

Hello everyone and Happy New Year from my officially first post of the year!

This is my first ever Wishlist post and the first Wishlist of 2012! And for that post I couldn’t think of anything else but to present you with some of my most awaited book releases of 2012.The publication date of some of the books I’ve been drooling for months is coming closer, while others seem yet too far away, but you know how time is…, it flies away without you even noticing it! So, without further delay, here are some of the books I simply can’t wait to read in 2012!
