I’m very happy with my new “minimize reading Young Adult fiction” rule. I find that I’m enjoying my reading a lot more now that I’m no longer stuck constantly reading about high school. I’m finally getting around to starting a few Urban Fantasy series that I kept putting off. Not surprisingly, my reading speed has increased quite a bit as well. Coincidence? I think not!
As you can see from the books below; there’s only one YA novel. Yay me! I couldn’t pass up Soul Thief because I adored The Demon Trapper’s Daughter. I’m psyched about Rachel Vincent and Keri Arthur’s new books. They’re two of my most favorite authors in the world!
Blood Bound by Rachel Vincent (GoodReads / The Book Depository)
Shadow Kin by M.J. Scott (GoodReads / The Book Depository)
Moon Called by Patricia Briggs (GoodReads / The Book Depository)
Magic Bites by Ilona Andrews (GoodReads / The Book Depository)
Dark Lover by J. R. Ward (GoodReads / The Book Depository)
Soul Thief by Jana Oliver (GoodReads / The Book Depository)
Werewolf in the North Woods by Vicki Lewis Thompson (GoodReads / The Book Depository)
Wolf at the Door by MaryJanice Davidson (GoodReads / The Book Depository)
Unbound Darkness by Keri Arthur (GoodReads / The Book Depository)

I review Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance books with a focus all things werewolf. Based out of Ottawa, Canada
Blood Bound is freaking amazing!!! I can’t wait to see what you think of it ^^
So many awesome new books! And that might be a rule I need to follow myself, Carmel, though I love YA lit. It’s nice to read the books not geared towards high schoolers. 🙂 I’m really eager to read Blood Bound and I know from both my former roommates that Moon Called is a great series starter. I hope you enjoy all of your new books!
P.S. Ironically, my IMM is full of YA books.
@Tynga – I actually just finished it and I’m working on my review. It was AMAZING!!
@DJL – It takes quite a bit of will power to resist all of the pretty YA covers but I think that it’s worth it in the long run.
I actually bought Moon Called at a thrift store awhile ago for like, 50 cents hahah. I’ve yet to read it though! Can’t wait to see what you think!
Nice mailbox this week!! Blood Bound was great!! Really can’t wait to read more of Rachel’s new series!
