Lots of Bertrice Small re-reads, and I am now devouring the World of Hetar series by her, erotic fantasy romance. Some new Carolyn Brown books, and two new to me authors: Ann Aguirre (whom I will be meeting in Berlin end of this month) and Nicole Peeler. I liked both series and will read more books by them. Anne Bishop - Etched in Bone is already a re-read.

New books to look forward to for January 2017

 photo Happy New Year_zpscaurlj1k.png

Happy New Year to all my followers, readers and friends! May 2017 be filled with great new books you will loose yourself in.

This is the list of new releases for the month of January 2017 I am looking forward to:

Christine Feehan – Power Game – GhostWalker 13 HC
Darynda Jones – Eleventh Grave in Moonlight – Charley Davidson 11 HC
Heather Graham – Law and Disorder
J.D. Robb – Apprentice in Death – In Death 43 PB
Jacquelyn Frank – Thirst – Energy Vampires 1

Kresley Cole – Shadow’s Seduction – Immortals after dark 18
Lisa Shearin – The Ghoul Vendetta –SPI Files 4
Patricia Briggs – Fire Touched - Mercy Thompson 9

I have read a total of 15 books and 2 novella’s in December 2016, and my total for the whole year of 2016 is 231 books and 10 novellas. 16 more books than in 2015, and I am happy with that.

I stopped blogging halfway through 2016, as my work hours went crazy and I did not want to spend more time behind the computer when I was finally home. Also, my computer crashed in July, and I have lost a lot of reviews and that still hurts. I hate my new computer, I just can’t get it to work as I want it to. It has the newest Windows and Office, and I hate it. It wants me to do things I don’t want to at all, and I just want to kick the thing.

But work at the office has suddenly become quiet, so I will have more time at home, reading, and perhaps writing a review or two again. Because I did miss it, and spending time at your blogs as well. Can you believe it, I have saved all those emails from your blog, and now have 14.000 unread ones in my email …. Not sure if I will ever catch up, but I will try to read a few a day. Who knows what gems of books I have missed!
