Waiting On Wednesday - It's Been Awhile

This is a weekly event hosted by Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

There are quite a few books I'm anxiously waiting for but two REALLY stick out so here they are...

Magic Slays
Ilona Andrew / Urban Fantasy
Books 5 in the Kate Daniels series
Publisher: Ace
Released: May 31st 2011

Plagued by a war between magic and technology, Atlanta has never been so deadly. Good thing Kate Daniels is on the job.

Kate Daniels may have quit the Order of Merciful Aid, but she’s still knee-deep in paranormal problems. Or she would be if she could get someone to hire her. Starting her own business has been more challenging than she thought it would be—now that the Order is disparaging her good name, and many potential clients are afraid of getting on the bad side of the Beast Lord, who just happens to be Kate’s mate.

So when Atlanta’s premier Master of the Dead calls to ask for help with a vampire on the loose, Kate leaps at the chance of some paying work. Turns out this is not an isolated incident, and Kate needs to get to the bottom of it—fast, or the city and everyone dear to her might pay the ultimate price

Silent Howl
Stacey Kennedy / Urban Fantasy
Book 2 in the Blue Bloods series
Publisher: Liquid Silver Books
Released: February 7th 2011

When murder threatens innocent lives, will one woman unleash the wolf within her or hide behind the human that cowers in fear.

Rynn Murphy is a werewolf and she is in a state of bliss―her junkie parents are in recovery for their drug addiction. Her Grandfather, Pops, suffering from Alzheimer’s has settled into a nursing home in Utah. And she has just witnessed the bonding ceremony of her friends, Nexi and Kyden from the Otherworld. With her mate, Briggs by her side, life can’t get any better…

But this happiness is about to end as Rynn is brought to Philadelphia. As a Blue Blood Werewolf, she has been given a special gift to possess a strong scent. And after horrific murders take place in the Pennsylvania territory, Rynn must use this ability to seek the killer out…

This task does not come easily, Rynn is struggling. The human in her flees from danger. The wolf in her is desperate to end his murderous rampage. Rynn must reconcile these two halves while these murders begin to cross State lines. Soon, danger will be all around them, and Rynn will have to decide what is more important―the human who remains in her or the wolves she has sworn to protect

What are you waiting for?

I have been wanting to read Ilona Andrews she is high on my list. And we all know how I feel about Stacey I would read anything by her lol(new fave author)

Thanks for stopping by my blog and to answer your question. This is where I got my reading meter

all you have to do is just put in the amount of books to read, what you have read- change the color the color(if you want too) then click calculate then scroll down and copy and paste into a html widget.

You have to go back each time you read a book and recalculate but it just takes a couple seconds to do.

Of course you know that this other lover of the Kate Daniels series has already preordered Magic Slays, the one you chose by Stacy Kennedy sounds good and someday when she has her series finished may give them a shot to read the books!
Hope you get them both Belinda, thanks for stopping by earlier.. It has been another day of doctors and waiting on meds at the pharmacy so until got back home at 5:30 what little blog rounds I got to do was very early this morning.... Now I am in catch up mode and finding more books that I will someday wish to read!
