Okay. Yes, I exaggerate, but here’s the deal. There are so many books that I am WAITING really impatiently for. Some of these have release dates, and some do not. I am not listing these in any particular order, but gosh darn it, I wish they were written, edited, and published already. I’m in agony, I tell you, agony! Below I’ve included links to book descriptions and series listing on goodreads.com when available, and links to author blogs or websites so you can check out their overall awesomeness for yourselves.
Hard Head by Damon Suede– As far as I am concerned, Damon Suede wrote one of the best damn books of 2011, Hot Head. Hard Head is book #2 in the Head series, and it is slated to come out in the Fall of 2012. I loved the characters in Hot Head, and can’t wait to visit the Head world again. I have been waiting for this one ever since I fist discovered Hot Head in December of 2011.
Second Hand by Heidi Cullinan and Marie Sexton– That’s right. two of my favorite authors teamed up to write what I hope will be an outstanding story, book #2 in the Tucker Springs series. So far I’ve loved everything I’ve read from both Heidi and Marie, and the idea of them doing a book together is just sexy awesome. Book #1 in the Tucker Springs series Where Nerves End, is by L.A. Witt (aka Lauren Gallagher), another one of my faves! This book is slated to come out on September 10, 2012.
?????? (Elementally Evolved, #2) by T.J. Klune– Nope, no title yet. Don’t know when the sequel to T.J. Klune’s Burn (Elementally Evolved #1) is coming out, my guess is probably not till 2013, but I am really really looking forward to this one. Seven and Felix, I am waiting.
Pressure Head by J.L. Merrow– Okay, this one is coming out on September 18, 2012. Merrow is a great m/m romance author from across the pond. I have really enjoyed some of her other contemporary stories, and Pressure Head has a bit of a paranormal twist to it, so I am looking forward to that.
Conduct Unbecoming by L.A. Witt– An enlisted man getting involved with an officer? In Okinawa? Yum. Noms. A love forbidden due to military rank? What’s not to love? This one is slated to come out October 23, 2012.
My Regelence Rake (Sci-Regency #3) by J.L. Langley– I never thought that my obsession with cheesy regency romance would carry me into outer-space to the planet of Regelence, where the wealthy genetically engineer their male children to prefer males. I have thoroughly enjoyed Langley’s other two books in the Sci-Regency series, and eagerly await the antics and hijinks of the Townsend royal family once again, while watching Prince Colton fall in love. This new Regelence romance is slated to hit the shelves on October 2, 2012.
Home Work (Life Lessons #3) by Kaje Harper– I LOVE this series. This is book #3 of Harper’s Life Lessons series, a Twin Cites based mystery/romance series featuring high school teacher Tony Hart and Detective Jared MacLean. Harper’s writing is gorgeous and satisfying, so I am really looking forward to this one. This book was slated to come out sometime in August, but there is no solid release date. So, here I am, waiting…
Saving Sean (Seattle Stories #2) by Con Riley– Riley’s debut novel After Ben (Seattle Stories, #1) was just published in July of 2012. I read it and was amazed and thoroughly impressed. It is a beautiful story. So I was delighted to discover that a sequel was on its way! Saving Sean is slated to hit the shelves in October of 2012.
Not So Innocent (Shattered Glass #2) by Dani Alexander– Alexander took the self-publishing world by storm in January of 2012 with the release self-published title Shattered Glass (Shattered Glass, #1). Thanks to Alexander, I will never ever be able to look at bunny slippers the same way again. The release for Not So Innocent has been pushed back to Winter-ish of 2012, and will feature the now grown-up manic artist Cai. Dani- I know you are still writing. Don’t give up. We’ll wait longer if we have to.
BOATK #3 Bear, Otter, and the Kid #3 by T.J. Klune– Okay, no that is not the title, and I’m not even sure if Mr.Klune has decided to write a third book in this series. If he has, it’s not coming out in the near future. I adore both books in the Bear, Otter, and the Kid series, and having recently finished Who We Are (Bear, Otter, and the Kid #2), book #2 in the series, it’s killing me to not know what happens to Tyson and Dominic when Tyson grows up. Please write it T.J.? It needs to be done, for vegans and PETA supporters everywhere. Pretty please? I know you’ve got other projects in the works, and I will wait, just let us know if you plan to write it.
So that’s my list of what I want to be reading RIGHT NOW, but can’t because they are not out yet. I’ll add-on if I think of any others!
