Pimping Out the 2009 Books- Day 3!

It is day 3 and my final presentation for the must read books for 2009 as your island book pimp. I have recovered from another long night in my bedroom handcuffed... erm ...reading in bed!

Today's presentation will be the must read books in Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance and Fantasy.

This post looks like it may be a big one, so sit back and enjoy the nice island sun as I give you even more book picks to make you go broke: .

1. Angels' Blood by Nalini Singh. Coming March 3 from Berkley. A naughty angel and a vampire type slayer fight crime in New York City. There is a hot bathtub scene that will have you melting while you read. I sure did.
2. As Shadows Fade by Colleen Gleason Coming on March 3 from NAL. Technically this one can be considered a historical, but it is about a vampire slayer, and the final book in this series. Will Victoria choose the sexy, give her great sex in a carriage, Sebastian or the broody, I have issues, boo-hoo I can't love you Max? Can you figure out who I want Victoria to choose?

3. Passion Unchained (February 24) and Passion Unleashed (April 1) by Larissa Ione. Coming from Forever. Hot demon sex.
4. Blue Diablo by Ann Aguirre. Coming April 7 from ROC. This is a new series from Ann and I adore her big time.

5. White Star by Elizabeth Vaughan. Coming April 7 from Berkley. This is the sequel to Dagger-Star and takes place in a fantasy type world with magic and strong female characters.

6. NO COVER YET: Branded by Fire by Nalini Singh. Coming July 7 from Berkley. Mercy's and Riley story. And if you have read the excerpt, you will understand why you must buy this book!
7. Lover Avenged by J.R. Ward. Coming April 28 from NAL. THIS IS MY MUST READ MOST LUSTED AFTER BOOK OF THE YEAR. A book pimp needs her sexy pimp to keep her company and I have the feeling this book will deliver. (Hopefully Ward will not make Rehv into a ghost and give us a good reason why he is sleeping with his skanky half-sister)

8. Eve of Darkness by S.J. Day. Coming April 28 from Tor. This is the first book in a new series from Day also known as Sylvia Day who writes wonderful historicals. I have been pimping out this book like crazy. The next two in this series come out over the summer.

9. Scarlett by Jordan Summers. Coming June 2 from Tor. I was such a big fan of the first novel, Red, in this trilogy about werewolves in the future. Gritty, dark and sexy. .

10.Queen of Song and Souls by C.L. Wilson. Coming June 2 from Leisure. This is the last book in her incredible fantasy series.

11. NO COVER YET: Hunting Ground by Patricia Briggs. Coming July 28 from Ace. If you have read Cry Wolf, you will understand why this is one anticipated read. .

Have I given you enough or are you hungry for more? What other books are you lusting for?

This concludes our presentation on the favorite books for your TBR pile for 2009. Hopefully my bosses on the DIK island have been pleased with my recommendations and will invite me back for more books to add to your TBR pile.

Nice list! I'm so far behind with Nalini Singh. I really need to get back on track with her.

Same with J.R. Ward.

I always wanted to try Patricia Briggs and Ann Aguire, just haven't gotten around to them yet. But all look like really good books.

Thanks for posting them.

Renee said...

I'm really looking forward to Nalini Singh's and Ann Aguirre's new series'! I think Angel's Blood is one of the most beautiful covers to come out in a long time.

BTW, here's a link for the Hunting Ground cover art. :-)

TEAM MAX!!!! *ahem* :)

Lessee...I can't wait to read 99% of the books you've got on that list. My pocketbook hates me. :(

Mary M. said...

Nice list. I've read Angel's Blood too, great read. There are a lot of the series you featured I haven't read yet, but Branded by Fire and Lover Avenged I'm really looking forward to. I'm more interested about what JR has in store for the rest of the characters and the world than Rehvenge himself, though.

Tracy said...

Very cool list - thanks Kate! I'm so looking forward to Angel's Blood and Branded By Fire
Cover art here:

I'm gonna start the Briggs series soon. OH and of course how can I forget Rhev! My man! Oh wait, your man! lol

Jenre said...

Great list!

I must start reading Nalini Singh, there's so much good said about her books.

I'm looking forward to the Colleen Gleason book. Hmmmm.... Max (I've got a giant stick up my arse) or Sebastian (I'm unreliable and will happily betray you at the first opportunity)? Choices, choices.

As for Ward...I'm hoping, I really am. I *almost* gave up after the last book.

Katie Reus said...

I'm definitely looking forward to Patricia Briggs' next release!! Loved Cry Wolf :)

Lindsey said...

That's some list! I'm also looking forward to Larissa Ione's Demonica books.

Marg said...

Lots of great choices here!

I am hoping to get in a the beginning o the new series from Nalini Singh and keep up this time! I am so far behind in the Psy series. I want to read more books from it, but I just haven't yet!

I am almost up to date on the Gleason book. I like her books, and would have to say Go Max!, although I am going to kind of hedge my bets and say I think Sebastian is pretty awesome too. I just hope that every man around her doesn't fall in love with Victoria in the next book.

Must read Grimspace and Dagger-star seeing as I already own them both! And I already own the first CL Wilson book as well. So many books, so little time!

JRW...sigh. I am three books behind in the series, and I am seriously tempted to just reread the first few over and over again instead of buying the new ones. Then again, I might miss out on something good if I don't keep reading.

Squee! I made the list. *g*
