My Bookish Wants & Gots

My Bookish Wants & Gots

I've decided to "test drive" a few different IMM options, and this week it's My Bookish Wants & Gots, hosted by The Book Vixen. This is a chance to share the titles received this week, either from the library or bookstore or if I'm lucky, publishers! The intent is not to brag, but rather to share new titles and discover what others have received this week. I've included links to Goodreads if you want more information on the books.


My Bookish Wants & Gots

I'm still on my self-imposed book buying ban and have stopped accepting review copies from anyone I haven't worked with before, as Book Expo is next month and I want to have a clear calendar. But since I have a love affair with anthologies, and have worked with Meryl L. Moss Media Relations several times before, I couldn't resist signing up for an upcoming blog tour for the below book!


Love is Murder anthology
Love is Murder anthology

Prepare for heart-racing suspense in this original collection by thirty of the hottest bestselling authors and new voices writing romance suspense today.... Bodyguards, vigilantes, stalkers, serial killers, women (and men!) in jeopardy, cops, thieves, P.I.s, killers - these all-new stories will keep you thrilled and chilled late into the night.

Signed up for another blog tour by Meryl L. Moss Media Relations as I've read the Forensics Instincts series before and enjoyed it. Will also be hosting a giveaway at the end of July, so keep an eye out!

The Line Between Here and Gone by Andrea Kane
by Andrea Kane

Each day is a struggle for Amanda Gleason's newborn son as he battles a rare immune deficiency. Justin's best chance for a cure lies with his father, who was brutally murdered before Amanda even realized she carried his child. Or was he?



What did you receive in your mailbox this week?
Leave me a link and I'll stop by to check them out!

  4. Gosh the cover of The Line Between Here and Gone is so scary! The more I watch Bones the more interested I get in books about forensics and DNA. Let me know what you think of this one.

  14. Thanks for stopping by my blog. You got books I have never heard of before this post. They sound good and I see you are going to BEA to, I am and like you I think this will be my last. Its getting to expensive for me to justify spending that money when it could be put towards a family vacation. Hope to see you around BEA
