. . .

Adair, Banks, Couper, Dean…now these are some ABCs I can roll with. ^_^ This week’s releases are not overwhelming in number–relatively speaking, that is–but they do present some long awaited titles, and if nothing else, you’ll find some tropes that sit a bit left of the expected “middle”….cases in point:

  • The Lost is a continuation of the Celestial Blues series, an urban fantasy with a heavy dose of mystery and 1950s American rockabilly stylings. Certainly a bit of a break from the usual modern-day urban fantasy settings. (That pretty cover doesn’t hurt, either.)
  • The Mysterious Death of Mr. Darcy, a Pride and Prejudice-themed…murder mystery? Stranger things have been done to the Jane Austen library (like zombies, sea monsters, and vampires, to name a few)…so this might be a fun read for fans of alternative takes on Austen’s creations.
  • MaryJanice Davidson’s You & I, Me & You wraps up the series about a protagonist whose multiple personality disorder serves as an asset to her work in a very special branch of the FBI.

Beyond those, we’ve still got the famed Orson Scott Card’s latest, a new installment of Beth Kery’s sexy serial, the latest Secret McQueen book (YEAAAAHOO!), and some good dollops of steampunk. And a partridge in a pear tree.


. . .

Have you been eagerly awaiting any of this week’s new releases? Do you prefer familiar tropes in your reading, or do you actively seek unusual themes?

    O yes, the new Maya Banks and Cherry Adair are on their way to me. I have the new Sierra Dean book. But I am amazed by Violet Winspear. I read her harlequin (bouquet reeks) about 30 years ago!

    I’m a fan of Cherry’s Lodestone series, too. Still waiting for Gideon’s book. There’s comfort in seeking out familiar tropes.

    Meh. A whole lotta meh.

    Wow, I’m out of the loop, I’ve hardly heard of any of these! I do think ‘Jilted’ sounds fun, I’d like to read that, but I’m really trying to shrink the tbr pile, not add to it just now. A girl can try, but I don’t think it’s really going to happen.

    me too, all these titles are new ones for me, looks great too. I’m looking forward to 17 & Gone by Nova Ren Suma and Pretty girls.
