Waiting on Wednesday (13)

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.  I’ve decided to highlight a book that is within a couple of weeks of being released.   This week my pre-publication “can’t-wait-to-read” selection is from another one of my ALL time favorite series. It’s the Raine Benares series which is fantasy series.  Some of my all time favorite quotes are from Raine. Here are a couple:   Whoever said ignorance is bliss must have died a horrible death with a really surprised look on his face.   Most girls get flower or candy.

Robb.  Can you believe that this is the thirty-second book in the series and that it is still going strong?  I credit the success of this series to the growth of the characters. Each of them them have evolved with each book.   My favorite characters are Eve and Roarke but Peabody is a very close second.  Eve and Peabody still make me laugh and settling down with this series is like seeing family you haven’t visited with in awhile.  I know this one will be an exciting and […]

“Waiting On” Wednesday” is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.  I’ve decided to highlight a book that is within a couple of weeks of being released.   This week my pre-publication “can’t-wait-to-read” selection is by former Buffy the Vampire actor Amber Benson (she played Tara).
