Wicked Wednesday - new releases for 2012

Anticipation is the act of feeling excited, enthusiastic or anxious about an upcoming event. I'm feeling it for this year's paranormal normal releases. Here's a list of some of the ones I'm particularly looking forward to:

By A Thread by Jennifer Estep. (Feb. 28) The next book in the Elemental Assassin series. If you love dark urban fantasy with a bit of romance, you need to read these books.

Fair Game (Alpha and Omega) by Patricia Briggs. (March 6) I'm a big fan of her Mercy Thompson series, but this one has grown on me too. Great for werewolf fans.

Sacrificial Magic by Stacia Kane. (March 27) The fourth installment of the Downside Ghosts series. This is a dark, dark series. Even the romance is dark, but I love it just the same. There's nothing else like it out there.

Deadlocked by Charlaine Harris. (May 1) Sookie Stackhouse book #12. Can't wait, can't wait, can't wait! I love the wit and southern charm and, mmm, Eric Northman.

Embrace of the Damned by Anya Bast. (May 1) This is a new series called the Brotherhood of the Damned. I've heard great things already and Anya is a spectacular writer.

Gunmetal Magic: A Novel in the World of Kate Daniels by Ilona Andrews. (July?) I love the Kate Daniels series. Curran is one of my favorite heroes. I love the title to this book, though I haven't heard a thing about it yet.

Into the Dreaming (April 24), Fever Moon - The Fear Dorcha (July 10) and ICED: A Dani O'Malley Novel (October 30) by Karen Marie Moning. All related to my favorite paranormal romance series, the Fever series.

What releases are you looking forward to this year?


  1. Great picks! I am definitely adding all of these to my TBR list - they sound exciting. Thank you for sharing! :)

  2. How did I miss the news of the new Sookie Stackhouse book! I really need to read the last two ones already out. I have them, but I haven't had a chance to read them. *sighs* I love Eric Northman too.

  3. I always appreciate book lists. They help me a lot when I'm off looking for another good read. Thanks.

  4. Amy, thanks! Those are only the big ones I want to read. My TBR list is huge enough as it is.

    Nicole, I can't wait!

    Cherie, I didn't know it was coming out until I was looking at the new releases for this year either.

    Cleemckenzie, you're welcome. I rely on blog friends for books too.

  5. Love me some sookie! I'm definitely anticipating the next book.

  6. I need to pick up the Sookie Stackhouse series. I keep meaning to...

  7. That is a lot to read! Whoa. I got tired just reading that list.

    Looks like Paranormal Romance is here to stay!

  8. These all sound like great reads. If I hadn't signed up to so many reading challenges for this year I would add these to be TBR list. Thanks for stopping by my blog yesturday for Teaser Tuesday.

  9. They all sound really good... I'm so behind on my books of reading, I kind of want to get through them before I got out hunting for new ones:) I'll just follow your reviews:)

  10. Oh, I love anticipation when it comes to books. :)

    I can never get the releases I'm looking forward to straight--even in a list. I always forget, and I read too many series to check up on all of them. I just take out the sequels when they appear on the library shelf. :P

  11. Sarah, me too! :)

    Prerna, you'll love them. Easy to read and addicting!

    Jay, I definitely hope so!

    Tizzy, I considered reading challenges, but I challenged myself enough with my writing goals!

    Tania, I like hunting for new ones too, but there's just so many!

    TGE, this post helps me remember. I do the same thing as you otherwise. :)

  12. Ooo! Great list! I guess I haven't even figured out what my most anticipated books are. I have too many I'm so excited to get to in my TBR pile right now. :)
