Favorite Books of 2008! (Updated!)

Update: On December 1st it was reported that Dewey passed away the previous Tuesday. My thoughts and prayers go out to Dewey and her family. She will be greatly missed in the blogosphere I'm sure. Read the post here. This one's for you Dewey!

As you may have noticed, I've been compiling my best reads of 2008 on the sidebar there. Thanks to a link alert from Marta over at Vampire Wire, I found out WG is compiling their own lists due to suggestions sent in by fellow book bloggers. So, I thought I'd hop right in with the full list early. :-)

If any book bloggers out there want to do the same, Weekly Geeks has opened the invite.

Here's my Top Ten (in progress) list for my fave reads of books publishing in 2008:

1. Zoe by T.A. Ford (Historical Romance)
2. SheWolf by Teresa D'Amario (Paranormal Romance)
3. Silenced by Nicole Givens Kurtz (Science Fiction Thriller)
4. Blood Martyr Fionn Jameson (Urban Fantasy)
5. Sex and the Single Braddock by Robyn Amos (Contemporary Romance)
6. Veiled Truth by Vivi Anna (Paranormal Romance)
7. Damewood: Demons of the Past (Science Fiction)

I'll probably update this post as I finish more reads so keep an eye out! :-)

You know, I haven't read a single one of those! I would probably like the historical one best. I'll check out your review to see what period it's set in.

Thanks Dewey! I also posted a response in the comments section to my Zoe review. :-)

I'm not sure I posted the time period of the book but just in case, it takes place in 18th century France. If you like adventure and romance during this time, I think you'll love Zoe. I highly recommend it! :-D

WOW! I can't believe I made your top list!
Thanks, Rae!

My pleasure, Erin! Thanks for a great read. :-D

It's August!

Hey folks!

Can you guys believe it's August already?

Lots of stuff going on in the world of Rae at the moment both personally and professionally. The newsletter will be going out soon and I'm diligently trying to get out a new release ASAHP that was held back a bit due to me not being happy with the end results. Stay tuned because I feel the end is nigh!

I took a breather from book reviewing and reading to deal with my current rental situation, but I miss it! I love the feeling of coming across that epic book you want to shout from the rooftops and losing myself in epic worlds. Sooooo....I'm diving back in. :-D I'm going through the list of books I had waiting in the wings and will try to play catch up. As I'm only one person with a busy schedule, I may not be able to get all the books reviewed right away and some I may sadly have to put aside if they don't grab me enough. Argh! I want to read and review everything but I can see now why so many bloggers have t…

Keeping Kinley by Annette K. Larsen
He's noble. She's common. It's complicated. Kinley is content with her common life until a chance meeting with an old friend—a noble—brings the possibility of love. Though Rylan pursues her with a charming carelessness, she doesn’t dare hope that their relationship will be accepted. When Kinley’s livelihood is threatened, she is thrust into his world as a servant, but the Rylan she encounters there isn’t the quirky friend she thought she knew. Can she trust him, or will she be forced to accept that her dreams are only that—dreams?
