Shaman – My full review was posted early this week. This was a long book, but intriguing.
Desert Fire – I was craving some romance, and this clean historical was just the thing, providing a fiery woman and a sweet romance.
Hidden Threat – I needed more romance, and this was between clean and explicit, like soft core, with lots of tension and a mystery that I didn’t fully guess the ending to.
Nimbus – Part 1 – A fun serial story that was accurately described to me as “for people who don’t know they like steampunk”.
Her Vampyrrhic Heart by Simon Clark – Netgalley find
Chronicles of Ave – Volume 1 by Stephen Zimmer – present from Tomorrow Comes Media
Hellscapes – Volume 1 by Stephen Zimmer – present from Tomorrow Comes Media

Last, but not least, there was a huge community book sale in town yesterday. It was held at the community centre and was massive. The ads for it said there were 30,000+ books, and I’d believe it. It took up a huge gymnasium, and there were lots of readers there. It was very reasonably priced: you bought a reusable bag for $20 and got all the books you could stuff in it. One volunteer there said he stuffed 35 books in one bag during a test to see how many books the bags could hold. I didn’t pick up that many. I got a ton of books for my son, and a few for myself.

Old City Hall (Detective Greene #1) by Robert Rotenberg
The Other Boleyn Girl (The Tudor Court #2) by Philippa Gregory
