Blog Hopping 1/13/2012
Welcome, fellow bloghoppers! You're looking at my personal blog, home to the rants and ramblings of an aspiring author. This week, I returned to bloghopping after a few weeks' absence, and also returned to regular posting with some amateur market research. I also do reviews of werewolf books, which are here. The review blog is currently on hiatus while I work on my own book, but feel free to browse the archived reviews. Have fun hopping!
This week's ice-breaker for TGIF @ GReads:
"Which books are at the top of your list to be read this year (new or old releases)?"
Hmm. Well, it depends on what's coming out, but I have a few specific things I'm looking forward to: the latest Kitty Norville, naturally. The third Raised by Wolves novel, Taken by Storm, just as naturally. The followup to Lunatic Fringe, which I think is called Hunger Ghost. Bloodrose and Destiny and Deception, both of which I'm actually a bit nervous about; the most recent chapters of both series were a bit of a letdown. I was going to mention the third Intertwined book, but word is it's been delayed until 2013. A pity. The series may be a guilty pleasure, but it's still a pleasure. Oh! And lest I forget: A Sliver of Shadow.
As for older books, there are a few series I have to keep up with. I'm only halfway through Rachel Vincent's werecat books, I've got a new series called The Wolf Chronicles to deal with, courtesy of a Christmas gift from my girlfriend. Also, I would at some point like to pick up Roger Corman's autobiography again. I read it once years ago, and I think some of the stuff he talks about might be applicable to independent authors.
And, one trend I am definitely hoping comes to fruition in 2012: Thanks to e-readers and the self-publishing revolution, gamebooks are back! ^_^
