New Releases for January

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a wonderful time ushering in 2015. My family did and we also had a great Christmas. Everyone received at least one book! J I also got several gift cards for Barnes & Noble that I will put to good use in the upcoming months. I’ll start with this month as there are several I am looking forward to, including, How to Plan a Wedding for a Royal Spy by Vanessa Kelly, Say Yes to the Marquess by Tessa Dare, The Duke of Dark Desires by Miranda Neville, and The Importance of Being Alice by Katie MacAlister.



Which January releases have you read? Of those, which ones do you recommend? Which ones are you most looking forward to reading? Tell us and one lucky commenter will win a random book from my prize stash!


Until February, happy reading!

  6. I'm always woefully behind in my reading this time of year but I'm looking forward to some great reads - especially the historicals!

    ReplyDelete
  7. I confess that I haven't read any of them yet, though the new Catherine Anderson book is going to the top of my CLW (can't live without) audio books list!

    Janga: a couple of them are so good they left that fifth star emitting sparks.
    As I don't have a telescope (it's on my next Christmas list for Santa!) I shall have to read all of Janga's selection to find those sparkling super nova .... such a tease! LOL

    1. Happy New Year, Q! I hope Santa was good to you and Mrs. Q this year. You shouldn't have to wait long to see those super novas. In fact, my rave about the wonders of Tessa Dare's latest was posted at H & H several days ago. Another will appear here soon. :)

    2. I am putting all of Janga's on my list, too, Quantum! She never steers me wrong. ;)

  8. I haven't read any of the January releases, yet. Over half of the historicals are on my wish list as are a good number of the contemporaries (especially Grace Burrowes' and Carolyn Brown's latest). I didn't get any books for Christmas - serious trauma - but I did get some cash that I am going to spend on books. :-)
