I am on so many levels way behind on posting this. I humbly apologize to everyone and will get down on my knees and grovel if the need arises. I’ve been playing catch-up in a lot of areas (both on the blog and out of it) and I’m still trying to get through a lot.
But excuses aside….
WELCOME TO THE 40 EDITION OF THE BOOKWORMS CARNIVAL!
I have got to say that everyone came through. A day or two before the deadline, I had three reviews that were submitted for this carnival. I threw out a plea for more and look what I got! Talk about a link salad. There are some great novels being discussed below, so hopefully everyone will find something to whet their reading appetite. But you’re not here to listen to me, here we go…
Janicu is sharing with us a few of her current favorite reads:
- Rosemary and Rue by Seanan McGuire
- Sins & Shadows by Lyn Benedict
- Mark of the Demon by Diana Rowland
- Salt and Silver by Anna Katherine
- Wicked Game by Jeri Smith-Ready – this happens to be one of my favorites as well. I love how Smith-Ready gave her vampires a severe case of OCD.
- Blue Diablo by Ann Aguirre
Falling Off The Shelf has a review for Leigh Bridger’s Soul Catcher, which I happen to be in the middle of right now. She also shares with us her reviews for John Shirley’s Bleak History and Patricia Brigg’s Bone Crossed
Caitlin from Chaotic Compendiums has one that I’ve really been seeing around lately and actually have sitting on my desk right now. She shares her thoughts on John Ajvide Lindqvist’s Let the Right One In.
Jackie U is giving us a great review of one of my favorite series – Rachel Vincent’s Prey.
Jennifer from Reading with Tequila, who I happen to think has a fabulous blog name, gives us her opinion on the first two books in Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight Saga – Twilight and New Moon – just in time for New Moon’s release on Friday.
Robin of My Two Blessings brings us great review Rachel Vincent’s My Soul to Take and a fabulous review containing five mini reviews of Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris, Witching Moon by Rebecca York, R is for Ricochet by Sue Grafton, Hot Blooded by Lisa Jackson and 4.50 from Paddington by Agatha Christie
Michelle from See Michelle Read is sharing her enthusiasm for the urban fantasy genre with her reviews of:
- Kelley Armstrong’s Bitten
- Sarah Rees Brennan’s The Demon’s Lexicon
- Ilona Andrew’s Magic Strikes – which happens to be one of my favorite authors
- Patricia Brigg’s Hunting Ground – another favorite of mine
- Caitlin Kittredge’s Street Magic
Check out the next BWC that’s being planned. Do you have a review that would go with any of these themes? If not, check out the list of upcoming carnivals, you might have something that’ll work with a future carnival or have something in your TBR stack that would work.
