It’s a rainy Saturday in Maryland. Word is Nora is making soup. I am not. But I am thinking about books and spring. The Equinox approaches! As the Northern hemisphere nears the end of a long winter and the Southern starts to shed the dog days of summer, I thought it was good time to shake off the dust on our reading lists and swap ideas of what to read.
The Liar, Nora’s 2015 hardcover romantic suspense, will hit stores in the US/Canada on April 14, in the UK/Ireland/AUS/NZ and SA on April 16. To me, The Liar is book that simply sings spring from the setting to the blooming of one Shelby Foxworth. And I’ve got to admit that Griff Lott hit #1 (with a bullet as Billboard Magazine used to say) on my Nora heroes list. We’ll have to talk about that in April won’t we?
BTW, if you are anywhere near western Maryland on April 11, Nora will sign copies of The Liar at Turn the Page’s spring signing. Kat Martin, Christine Trent, Shayla Black, Jennifer Probst, Robin Kaye and Adam Pelzmen will be there as well.
One small perk of my job is that sometimes I can beguile an advance copy of another author’s books from Team Nora. Right now I’m waiting (impatiently) for Nalini Singh‘s Shards of Hope to show up on my door a little before the June release. (BTW, did I mention Nalini is coming to Turn the Page’s 20th anniversary event on July 18? No? Did I say Jill shalvis will be there as well? NO? Well we’ll keep that between us for now ok? )
Everyone has favorite authors, right? Nora’s shared some of hers here like Stephen King, John Sandford and Sarah Addison Allen. Nalini and Jill are two of mine so July will be a fan girl moment for me.
What have I read besides The Liar? Well I can’t say enough good things about Sarah Addison Allen’s First Frost. It was one of those books that I finished completely convinced I’d never read another good book again. But don’t worry, I know I will.
Sarah Morgan is a wonderful writer and the first book in her new Puffin Island series, First Time in Forever, is on my desk. And I’m also anticipating Thea Harrison‘s Midnight’s Kiss — the latest in her Elder Race series.
What are you reading these days? And what are you anticipating in the coming season?
