Kat I didn't know there was a fourth book to the Charlotte Holmes series! I loved the first but had to wait for the second and third to be released and although I bought them I haven't picked them up yet. This means getting back to this great detective duo asap!

nadyne It’s been so many years since Ridley Pearson added to the Lou Bosch/ Daphne Matthews series that I’m beginning to think it won’t happen at all. There was a novella/ short story, but I need a full novel. Trying to not lose hope.

Kevin Konrad I am currently in a reading slump, I have a lot of books I have started, but am having a hard time continuing to read them, I am also trying to break into the YA series slowly I have read a couple but not sure how I feel about them yet, the stigma of reading Young adult books and stuff like that, so frustrated
My TBR pile seems to be just getting longer and longer, I just want to book that grabs me from the first sentence. I love fantasy and Sci fi but I also want to broaden my horizons. Ugh it's so hard

There's a new book by Christian Cameron coming out in April, as well, that I'm looking forward to, though I'm getting impatient for the next installments of his Chivalry series and Tom Swan serial books.
