**Feature & Follow #39**


Happy Friday and welcome to the Blog Hop! 

Feature & Follow is a weekly blog hop hosted by the talented ladies behind AlisonCanRead and Parajunkee's View. The intent of this blog hop is to get out there and meet other bloggers and gain new followers yourself. What sets this blog hop apart is the Feature. Each week, two blogs are featured, one at AlisonCanRead and one at Parajunkee's View. So make sure to hop over to those blogs to check out this week's Features.


This week's Features are:
Words Fueled by Love
A Readers Sanctuary

This week's question is:
What books are you looking forward to reading in 2014?

For me in 2014, I'm going to be doing some catch up reading. I never made it around to reading some of the latest releases in several of my favorite series in 2013. So, while I look forward to reading this year's releases in those series, I have to get caught up first! ;) There are also a few series I am caught up on and I can't wait to read the next book. Here are a few I'm really anxious to get to:

Ever After (The Hollows, #11)Frost Burned (Mercy Thompson, #7)Magic Rises (Kate Daniels, #6)Burned (Dani O'Malley, #2; Fever, #7)Silver Shadows (Bloodlines, #5)The Undead Pool (The Hollows, #12)Up From the Grave (Night Huntress, #7)Magic Breaks (Kate Daniels, #7)

It looks like I have a theme, huh?!? ;) What about you? What books are you most looking forward to reading in 2014?

  1. Brandee you are the first one that I can say I have heard of all those books! I totally forgot Silver Shadows because I haven't read the most recent book in that series. So nice to see books I recognize! Have a great week and thanks for stopping by.

  3. You and I just need to be book bffs. The only ones I haven't heard of, and waiting for, are the Ilona Andrews books and I'm going to go check those out.

  4. Huh, somehow, Silver Shadows didn't end up on my list - I am not really sure how that happened. I agree with your list, and please hurry up and read Ever After before The Undead Pool is released.

    I'm so happy for you with all the snow - I hope you're not on shovel-duty today ;) Here, it's raining and raining - it feels like late fall, not the middle of the winter.

    I hope you'll have a fabulous Friday, my friend. *BIG HUGS*

  6. All of these are books that i've heard great things about (or if the book isn't released yet then the series). I've only started the Mercy Thompson series out of all of these, however am definitely planning on broadening my horizons soon and a few of these are definitely on my list to do that. Great list!

  15. Good list. I've heard a lot of good things about Karen Moning's books but I haven't yet picked on up. I guess I should put one of them on my TBR list and give it a try.

  16. Great list! I'm behind on Harrison and Frost and Mead. Crap! And I haven't started Moning. But I actually pre-ordered the next Mercy book. Me! In hardback and everything. I'm soooo excited. And I'm dizzy just thinking about another Kate and Curran book. Yay!

    1. You wanna compare 'behind' lists, Robyn?!? I bet I can make you feel better about yours. ;) Good for you with pre-ordering! I haven't done that yet. :) And...I'm behind on Kate & Curran so I've gotta hurry! Oh, and Lexxie's gonna kill me if I don't get caught up on Harrison. :)

      Hope you had a great weekend, girl!
