Coming Up...

This week had me busy busy {away form blogland} which meant little time for reading. Sadly, I only read 2 books this week, shocking I know!  But, I plan to remedy this on my upcoming vacation.  In case you didn't know, this week marks the American Thanksgiving, and I will bravely be traveling with the millions of other people desperate for some Turkey.  There wont be any posts this coming Thursday, Friday, and Saturday because of the holiday. 

This week we'll be reviewing 2 new-to-me authors and series both in the "magic and more" category of Urban Fantasy.  Grave Witch by Kaylana Price and The Sweet Scent of Blood by Suzanne Mcleod.

This week I'll be reading Magic in the Blood by Devon Monk, followed by Wanderlust and Doubleblind by Ann Aguirre.

News and More:
Somehow I landed $15 in Borders Bucks, and of course I used it straight away to stack my TBR.  I purchased Some Girls Bite by Chloe Neill, Magic in the Blood by Devon Monk, and Street Magic by Caitlin Kittredge.   Previously this week, I purchased Nightshade by Andrea Cremer and I'm anxious to see if all the hype is justified. 
I received and ARC of Tiger's Curse by Colleen Houck that I'm really looking forward to.  I had previously read TC before it was picked up by a big publisher and I'll be interested to see how this new version fares to the previous.  I also received the last 2 books in the Casa Dracula series by Marta Acosta, The Bride at Casa Dracula and Haunted Honeymoon at Casa DraculaThe first two in this series were original and hilarious and I can't wait to see what Milagro is up to now.  

What are you reading this week?  What new releases maybe caught your eye?  Hope everyone has a great week and safe travels to all you tryptophan lovers.
