Have you heard about my LOVE of Deeper yet? No? Review. So of course I'm dying for Harder!

I've really loved Swank's NA paranormal series, and while I didn't love 2 as much as 1, I'm still anxious for the last book. The cover for it is not my favorite though...

Kemmerer's books are so, so good. I loved Gabriel, Hunter, and Nick's books. A LOT. I'm dying for Michael's book, but I dread the series being over! *cries*

I looved the first book in the O'Neil series. Review. The sequel was good, but Tyler's book is the one I've been waiting for since last year!

And Reisz, well, she's crack-tastic. Truly, I can't get enough of her books, and The King will tell Kingsley's early years, which makes me very happy.

I loved All Lined Up. The hero for All Broke Down grabbed my attention in the last few chapters of book 1.

And finally, I so loved Andrews' Sweet Ruin, and I have been bugging her on Twitter for the sequel. Because, like she told me, "THREE IS COMPLICATED" and of course one book was not nearly enough! :)

By the way, Pat and I will have a double review of Then Came You up on June 28th! I know many of you like to see dual reviews, and since we each gave the book a very different star rating, I hope you like the post.

So what books are YOU dying to read this year?

Oh so many pretties! I think the only one on mine is the Jill Shalvis. I love hers. I need to get some of these other authors checked out. A handful are on my author tbr pile :)

The_Book_Queen said...

Oh, that never ending pile again! :) I know it well . . .

The_Book_Queen said...

Oh, yes, how could I forget Ione? HOW? I blame it on the TBR Mountain again; I've fallen a bit behind on her books lately . . .

Janie said...

I'm really excited about Cara McKenna's upcoming "Lay it Down." It's the first in her new Desert Dogs series.

The_Book_Queen said...

Oooh, I have an ARC of that, I hope to get to it soon, so keep an eye out for a review!: )

Janie said...

Ooh! Most wanted lists! o_O Cool beans! You guys have some good ones and I do eventually want to read some of those, but none made my 'desperate' list.

I could list tons more actually, but can't we all? LOL

The_Book_Queen said...

I really need to get back to her series; I so loved The Saint!

The_Book_Queen said...

Oooh, another author I have not yet tried! :)

The_Book_Queen said...

LOL. Oh, yes, I left off a ton from my list, too! :)

Erin F said...

I think it's the 8th book and it's fantastic!!!!!!!!! Prepare to lose a large block of time :)

The_Book_Queen said...

Oh, I love finding series/authors that do that!
