I LOVED all of the books I read this month with a passion (it doesn't always happen that way, but I choose not to talk about those), and if you're already a fan of these authors, then these books are a must have! If the authors are new to you, then why not give them a try, hopefully you'll love them too. :-)
Mercy Blade- Faith Hunter (
Bite Me- Christopher Moore (ROFLMAO!)
*Enclave- Ann Aguirre (Wonderful, heartwrenching characters in a fascinating, dangerous future world)
*Aftermath- Ann Aguirre (made me cry ... now, need Endgame so bad)
Blast from the Past- Toni L. P. Kelner (A truly clever, engaging mystery)
Blue Diablo- Ann Aguirre (Makes me want to visit Mexico! +
Kitty Goes to War- Carrie Vaughn (Ooh! Cormac! Wow!)
The Fallen Blade- Jon Courtenay Grimwood (Brilliant historical fantasy with a different take on vamps)
Green-Eyed Demon- Jaye Wells - (special category; crit partner book, has my all time fav scene EVAH! Congrats, Jaye on GED's release! Yay!)
Home Improvement: Undead Edition- Editors: Charlaine Harris and Toni L.P. Kelner (I've always felt extremely privileged, and awed, for my little pixie story to be with all the fabulous stories in this book, even more so now I've read the rest *pinches herself*)
So that's 9 wonderfully, engrossing books (though, gross might be a more appropriate adjective for parts of Enclave *shudders*. Ann Aguirre is a truly EVIL, BRILLIANT AUTHOR! You will be desperate to finish this book to find out WHAT HAPPENS!) for this month, and 13* fantastic short stories, which is less than my January total, but still good going.
So how about all of you. What great books have you read and loved in February?
