Falling into New Books: September-December

I have been so caught up with Christmas books that I forgot I never posted the final list of books I’ll be reading in 2013, or have read, as is the case for many on the first half of the list. Remember my usual qualification: this is not a comprehensive list of romances being published. You can find a month-by-month list of all new releases in romance fiction at The Romance Dish, Heroes & Heartbreakers, and All about Romance. My list, which I post three times during the year, is strictly personal. It includes books by autobuy authors, additions to series I’m reading, and books by new authors I want to try because a friend has recommended them or because they look interesting. Most of the books on the list are romances, but there are also a few mysteries, women’s fiction novels, and general fiction novels. I have linked the books I have already reviewed to my reviews here, at The Romance Dish, or at Heroes & Heartbreakers.

What books top your wish list for the last quarter of 2013?


Terri Osburn said...

There are so many books coming. Have this many always been released per month? It seems like there are so many more to pick from now, but that might just be me.

Thanks for including me. :)

And this isn't even all the releases, Terri. Just those I have read/will read. I think in the Age of the Internet, we are just more aware of all that is available than we were when we depended on browsing bookstore shelves.

Up to the Challenge is among the have-reads, and I loved it. You'll be reading how much soon. :) And my response would be the same even if someone else had written it, except the voice is so distinctly yours that no one else could possibly have written it.

So thrilled to see A Perfect Distraction on your list! :)Hope you enjoy it.

Janga said...

I did indeed enjoy it, Anna. I'm looking forward to your next one.
