Well, this Friday, Aug. 31, 2012, we shall look up into the night sky and see that rare orb in all it's (not really) blue splendor. Since blue moons are such an uncommon occurrence, and this one is gracing us with its presence on a Friday night, we are given a fantastic reason to head out and party! Maybe, even drink a few Blue Moons (there better be some specials, people!)
For those of you poor bastards who probably won't make it out to celebrate tomorrow night, I leave you with my top 5 "Blue Moon Night" reading picks...
# 5 - Kitty Norville Novels
I was perusing books in a Barnes & Noble one day a couple years ago, looking for something new and interesting to read, when a bookish guy walks up and starts a conversation with me. I tell him about reading all of the Anita Blake series by Laurell K. Hamilton, and finishing up Kim Harrison's Hallows series, and how I was looking for something else...
"Have you tried the Kitty Norville books?"
"Kitty who?" I ask.
"Kitty Norville," he goes looking on the shelves behind us and pops a book out, placing it in my hands without hesitation. "Here, you'll thank me, it's an awesome series with a great female lead!"
To that bookish guy in the B&N store: I thank you! Also, I hope your wife wasn't too pissed that we were so chatty... she didn't look very happy! ;)
So, there you have, #5 on my list!
You can read my review of Destiny Binds here!
Also, I'm in love with her book covers!
# 4 Timber Wolves Trilogy
Back in Dec. 2011, I did a review of the first book in this YA paranormal series by Tammy Blackwell. I absolutely loved it! It is well written, with amazing characters, and it definitely left me wanting more.
The third book in the trilogy is due to release in Sept. 2012. So, grab the other two now, and get ready for some great reading!
# 3 The Wolves of Mercy Falls
This is an amazing, young adult, love story - with a twist! I promise, you will fall in love with the characters and the story line.
I also reviewed Shiver for Moonlit Reviews back in January of this year, and you can read that review here!
For years, Grace has watched the wolves in the woods behind her house. One yellow-eyed wolf—her wolf—is a chilling presence she can’t seem to live without. Meanwhile, Sam has lived two lives: In winter, the frozen woods, the protection of the pack, and the silent company of a fearless girl. In summer, a few precious months of being human… until the cold makes him shift back again.
Now, Grace meets a yellow-eyed boy whose familiarity takes her breath away. It’s her wolf. It has to be. But as winter nears, Sam must fight to stay human—or risk losing himself, and Grace, forever.
# 1 - The Big Bad Wolf Series
Heather Killough-Walden is a mastermind!
Once you start reading these steamy werewolf tales, you will undoubtedly find yourself out in search of a hot, biker-dude with a sexy growl! Good thing it's a blue moon night - might up your chances!
And when you're done with the werewolves, you can move onto Heather's spectacular vampire spin-off, The Kings Series!
