Regina (reginar) | 2883 comments While I am nervous and antsy waiting for Shadowfever, I thought it would be fun to list the pre-orders we are all doing so far this year. This is my pre-order list so far:

Shadowfever (Fever, #5) by Karen Marie Moning River Marked (Mercedes Thompson #6) by Patricia Briggs Ghost Story (Dresden Files, No. 13) by Jim Butcher Hard Bitten (Chicagoland Vampires, #4) by Chloe Neill

I am conflicted about whether I will pre-order these or do the library:
Lover Unleashed (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #9) by J.R. Ward This Side of the Grave (Night Huntress, #5) by Jeaniene Frost Breaking the Rules (Troubleshooters, #16) by Suzanne Brockmann Eternal Rider (Lords of Deliverance, #1) by Larissa Ione Darkness Unbound (Dark Angels, #1) by Keri Arthur Dead Reckoning (Sookie Stackhouse, #11) by Charlaine Harris

Ones I will be buying once they are available for pre-order:

Magic Slays (Kate Daniels, #5) by Ilona Andrews Nightfall (Dark Age Dawning #1) by Ellen Connor Aftermath (Sirantha Jax 5 by Aguirre) Untitled (alpha & omega 3 by Briggs)Envy (Fallen Angels 3 by Ward)

Literary Ames (amyorames) | 1854 comments Here's what I have for paperbacks:

Magic Slays (Kate Daniels, #5) by Ilona Andrews Archangel's Consort (Guild Hunter, #3) by Nalini Singh Iron Crowned (Dark Swan, #3) by Richelle Mead Kitty's Big Trouble (Kitty Norville, #9) by Carrie Vaughn Lips Touch Three Times by Laini Taylor

Now that I have a Kindle though, I'm wondering if it would be better to get the ebook instead. *bites lip*


message 3: by Regina (new)

Regina (reginar) | 2883 comments Oh!!!! I love doing kindle pre orders cuz they are delivered while you sleep.


message 4: by Literary Ames (new)

Literary Ames (amyorames) | 1854 comments That's a definite advantage!

Nicole Brown (nickichicki) | 2 comments @_@ Shadowfever @_@

I don't usually do preorders but i think i might start...they seem to be a lot cheaper and i think Amazon is still offering Prime free for a year...

Books I will 100% be buying:
Shadowfever (Fever, #5) by Karen Marie Moning Iron Crowned (Dark Swan, #3) by Richelle Mead River Marked (Mercedes Thompson, #6) by Patricia Briggs Hard Bitten (Chicagoland Vampires, #4) by Chloe Neill Magic Slays (Kate Daniels, #5) by Ilona Andrews

Books I'll probably get from the library or through book trades:
Pale Demon (Rachel Morgan/The Hollows, #9) by Kim Harrison This Side of the Grave (Night Huntress, #5) by Jeaniene Frost Dead Reckoning A Sookie Stackhouse Novel (Sookie Stackhouse/True Blood) by Charlaine Harris Succubus Revealed (Georgina Kincaid, #6) by Richelle Mead

that's all i can think of at the moment...there might be more!

Steph (angel4492) | 29279 comments Regina, you read my mind! Or looked in my in-box! I just got a notification yesterday that my pre-ordered copy of Archangel's Consort (Guild Hunter, #3) by Nalini Singh is on it's way! Yay!

Some others I've pre-ordered:
This Side of the Grave (Night Huntress, #5) by Jeaniene Frost River Marked (Mercedes Thompson, #6) by Patricia Briggs Magic Slays (Kate Daniels, #5) by Ilona Andrews Hard Bitten (Chicagoland Vampires, #4) by Chloe Neill

I pre-ordered Dead Reckoning (Sookie Stackhouse, #11) by Charlaine Harris b/c it's almost 50% off by doing it that way. Have high hopes for this one, we'll see.

Haven't yet, but may pre-order:
Spell Bound (Otherworld, #12) by Kelley Armstrong Iron Crowned (Dark Swan, #3) by Richelle Mead Hunt the Moon (Cassandra Palmer, #5) by Karen Chance Lover Unleashed (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #9) by J.R. Ward Eternal Rider (The Lords of Deliverance, #1) by Larissa Ione Darkness Unbound (Dark Angels, #1) by Keri Arthur Pale Demon (Rachel Morgan/The Hollows, #9) by Kim Harrison Etched in Bone (The Maker's Song, #4) by Adrian Phoenix The Darkest Secret (Lords of the Underworld, #7) by Gena Showalter

And Kiss of Snow (Psy-Changeling, #10) by Nalini Singh is frustrating me b/c Amazon is only selling the hardcover for $15.09 and BD has HC for $19.46 -both on 31 May- PB $8.32 but not until 11 Aug. I want this one (and bad), but would prefer PB, but want it in May, not Aug. LOL! Augh :\


message 7: by Steph, Serious series addict (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 29279 comments Oh, and I forgot about Burn the Night (Dark Days, #6) by Jocelynn Drake and Bloodlines (Bloodlines, #1) by Richelle Mead , which I will most likely pre-order, as well.


message 8: by Lisa M (last edited Jan 17, 2011 08:37PM) (new)

Lisa M (lamessegee) | 171 comments You're going to be sorry you asked. I have a serious overload of series to pre-order. :)

Here are the books that I have already pre-ordered or will be pre-ordering in paperback or for the Kindle:
Dreams of a Dark Warrior (Immortals After Dark, #11) by Kresley Cole Moon Cursed (Night Creature, #10) by Lori Handeland The Darkest Secret (Lords of the Underworld, #7) by Gena Showalter Eternal Rider (The Lords of Deliverance, #1) by Larissa Ione Dark Enchantment (Dark Magick, #3) by Anya Bast Vampire Mine (Love at Stake, #10) by Kerrelyn Sparks The Reluctant Vampire  by Lynsay Sands Deeper Than Midnight (Midnight Breed, #9) by Lara Adrian Black Magic Woman (Others, #11) by Christine Warren

message 11: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 23917 comments Steph, I just noticed BD price for Kiss of Snow has gone down. You might want to check it out. I had to succumb to the hardback, couldn't wait for the pb.


message 12: by Steph, Serious series addict (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 29279 comments Thanks, I'll look again. I don't think I'll be able to wait for PB either. *sigh*

Oh, you reminded me to take a look for Kiss at Your Own Risk. I enjoyed Stephanie's other series and want to check that one out too. Wonder if I could entice the AU postman to detour all your book orders to Japan? LOL! :D

Sandra | 23917 comments Don't say that, I have a hard enough time with him now!

I wasn't sure about the first one, but I'm glad I kept reading! I love the series! They're consistently 4 to 4 1/2 stars to me.

LMAO!! Oh, okay. :(

That's great to hear, Lisa. I'll definitely have to add them to my "don't forget to start in 2011" list. Thanks!

Christina (AKA Babbling) (babblingbookreviews) | 1241 comments Since I've moved, I've cut back a little on the number of books I pre-order. I still do it though, since it's one way to plan/budget for the books I MUST have. Once I rack up enough Amazon award points for a GC, I will either (a) cancel and re-order the pre-order using the GC (I just did this for the first time, I don't know why I hadn't thought of it before) or (b) Look through the WL for other books that I was interested in. Amazon's pretty good with release day delivery. And thank goodness for Amazon Prime, especially now with Agency pricing restrictions for new releases.

So....books:

Magic Slays (Kate Daniels, #5) by Ilona Andrews Hexed by Ilona Andrews On the Hunt (Includes Sentinel Wars #2.5, Final Prophecy #5.5) by Gena Showalter Storm Kissed (Final Prophecy, #6) by Jessica Andersen Darkfire Kiss by Deborah Cooke Flying Blind (The Dragon Diaries Trilogy #1) by Deborah Cooke Frostbound (The Dark Forgotten, #4) by Sharon Ashwood Deeper Than Midnight (Midnight Breed, #9) by Lara Adrian Captive Heart of the Dark Crescent Sisterhood by Anna Windsor Everyone Loves a Hero...and that's the problem by Marie Force

oops...left two of them off the list:
The Fallen Raziel  by Kristina Douglas Shadowflame (Shadow World, #2) by Dianne Sylvan


message 17: by Desperado (new)

Desperado (lethallovely) | 1360 comments I rarely pre-order since my book budget is almost nonexistent. Not to mention, I'm not one of those people who just has to read a book the day it comes out. Because of my nonexistent budget, I've learned how to be patient.

But I have around $70 on my Amazon gift cards from Xmas so I'm planning on buying these at some point for 2011:

Archangel's Consort (Guild Hunter, #3) by Nalini Singh Nightshade (Nightshade, #1) by Michelle Rowen Dreams of a Dark Warrior (Immortals After Dark, #11) by Kresley Cole This Side of the Grave (Night Huntress, #5) by Jeaniene Frost Taste Me by Tamara Hogan Eternal Rider (The Lords of Deliverance, #1) by Larissa Ione Mona Lisa Eclipsing (Monère Children of the Moon, #7) by Sunny Sweet Possession (Sweet, #5) by Maya Banks Abandon by Meg Cabot Blood Law by Karin Tabke The Unbearable Lightness of Dragons (Light Dragons, #2) by Katie MacAlister Hunt the Moon (Cassandra Palmer, #5) by Karen Chance


message 18: by Mandy (new)

Mandy Beyers (mandybeyers) | 346 comments I don't pre-order normally, but I did pre-order Shadowfever (and started it when I woke up this morning!) and Twice Dead by Catherine Coulter (releases Feb. 1st), because both were such good prices on the Nook (and I was dying to find out what happens to Mac!).


message 19: by CyberAlmu (new)

CyberAlmu | 302 comments I have pre-ordered, as most of you have done, River Marked

I still have to read #3-#5 (which I have already order and hopefully will be arriving sometime this week) but, anyway, I know I'll love all of them just as I loved the first 2

I plan to read #1 this month.


message 21: by Steph, Serious series addict (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 29279 comments Looking forward to your review, Regina. :)


message 22: by Jlyates (new)

Jlyates | 32 comments I have only preordered up to August; in June or July I will add to the order. What I have so far is

Vampire Mine (Love at Stake, #10) by Kerrelyn Sparks Lover Unleashed (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #9) by J.R. Ward Navarro's Promise (Breeds Series) by Lora Leigh Black Magic Woman (Others, #11) by Christine Warren Big Bad Beast (Pride, #6) by Shelly Laurenston Bound by Darkness (Paladins of Darkness, #7) by Alexis Morgan The Darkness Beyond by Alexis Morgan Kiss of Snow (Psy/Changeling) by Nalini Singh The Reluctant Vampire by Lynsay Sands Vampire in Atlantis  by Alyssa Day Deeper Than Midnight (Midnight Breed, #9) by Lara Adrian Master of Shadows (Mageverse, #12) by Angela Knight

That's it so far. Hopefully, I will be able to afford to get them. I had to cancel my order for C. Feehan's HB of Dark Prince :(


message 23: by Mary C (new)

Mary C (marymaryalwayscontrary) | 2491 comments I'm not pre-ordering anything. I have 900+ books here to read. My goal this year is to cut down on acquiring books and to read some of the ones I have. Every bookshelf I own is stacked 2 deep and overflowing. I need to trim some down. I will still buy some new books but only as I make progress in trimming the TBR and get coupons from Borders.


message 24: by Steph, Serious series addict (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 29279 comments Such strength, Mary. Good luck! Wish I could do that too ... well, for fleeting moments when I can't find a spot for the ones I have. LOL!


message 25: by AlbertaJenn (new)

AlbertaJenn I don't pre-order. Working for a bookseller, I get 30% off in-stock books. So I mostly buy books at my store or one of our other locations the day it comes out.


message 26: by Steph, Serious series addict (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 29279 comments Welcome, AlbertaJenn! That's a nice discount! I'd be waiting too. :)


message 27: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 23917 comments OK. Preordered some more

Magic Slays (Kate Daniels, #5) by Ilona Andrews Hidden Embers (Dragon's Heat, #2) by Tessa Adams Supernatural by G.A. Aiken Master of Shadows (Mageverse, #12) by Angela Knight Canyons of Night (Harmony Series, #8) by Jayne Ann Krentz Hexed by Ilona Andrews Darkfire Kiss by Deborah Cooke

And you're very lucky AlbertaJenn!


message 28: by Steph, Serious series addict (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 29279 comments Ooooo, I want Hidden Embers! LOL!


message 29: by AlbertaJenn (new)

AlbertaJenn Well, the pay is minimum wage (this is not my day job). I mostly work there cause I love books. And the discount.


message 30: by Steph, Serious series addict (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 29279 comments If I liked the store, I would guess that (the discount) would be a good enough reason to work there too. 30% off all books .... tiny piece of heaven. :)


message 31: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 23917 comments Steph wrote: "Ooooo, I want Hidden Embers! LOL!"

Yeah, I knew you'd say that! LOL.

Dark Embers (Dragon's Heat, #1) by Tessa Adams came in the mail yesterday.


message 32: by Steph, Serious series addict (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 29279 comments Ya know me so well. Although I'm not known to be quiet when I come across a book or series I really like. :) Can't wait to hear what you think of it.


message 33: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 23917 comments I'll have to schedule it soon then. LOL.


message 34: by Regina (new)

Regina (reginar) | 2883 comments That is a nice cover. ;)

I just pre-ordered Magic Slays, I am so excited for these books which are coming out in the next few months!

River Marked (Mercedes Thompson, #6) by Patricia Briggs Ghost Story (The Dresden Files, #13) by Jim Butcher Hard Bitten (Chicagoland Vampires, #4) by Chloe Neill Lover Unleashed (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #9) by J.R. Ward Breaking the Rules (Troubleshooters, #16) by Suzanne Brockmann Magic Slays (Kate Daniels, #5) by Ilona Andrews Nightfall (Dark Age Dawning #1) by Ellen Connor


I still can't decide if I should wait for the lirary version of Lover Unleashed or not. I hate that it is so pricey for the ebook and with PNR you never know if the couple is going to crash and burn for you.


message 35: by Mariya (new)

Mariya (cr6zym0nkeyiz) | 87 comments My preorders for this year:

Shadowfever (Fever, #5) by Karen Marie Moning Angelfire (Angelfire, #1) by Courtney Allison Moulton This Side of the Grave (Night Huntress, #5) by Jeaniene Frost Hard Bitten (Chicagoland Vampires, #4) by Chloe Neill Magic Slays (Kate Daniels, #5) by Ilona Andrews Shadowflame (Shadow World, #2) by Dianne Sylvan Grave Dance (Alex Craft, #2) by Kalayna Price


message 37: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 23917 comments I can't believe I forgot The Darkest Secret (Lords of the Underworld, #7) by Gena Showalter have rushed off to add it to list. Thanks Charlotte.


message 38: by Steph, Serious series addict (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 29279 comments I'm excited b/c we get two LoTU books in 2011! :D


message 39: by Mariya (new)

Mariya (cr6zym0nkeyiz) | 87 comments I forgot one! (yah! I just posted the cover for this one!)
Drink Deep (Chicagoland Vampires, #5) by Chloe Neill


message 40: by Regina (new)

Regina (reginar) | 2883 comments Thanks for posting mariya. Very cool cove with merit in her leathers. And I see the date is November 2011.

Now that I have a Kindle though, I'm wondering if it would be better to get the ebook instead. *bites lip*"


More paperbacks: River Marked (Mercedes Thompson, #6) by Patricia Briggs The Gathering (Darkness Rising, #1) by Kelley Armstrong Bite Club (Morganville Vampires) by Rachel Caine The Darkest Secret (Lords of the Underworld, #7) by Gena Showalter Hunt the Moon (Cassandra Palmer, #5) by Karen Chance Tangled Threads (Elemental Assassin, #4) by Jennifer Estep Secrets and Shadows (13 to Life, #2) by Shannon Delany Kiss of Snow (Psy-Changeling, #10) by Nalini Singh The only hardback because I cannot wait until 2012!

Kindle edition of Desires of the Dead (The Body Finder, #2) by Kimberly Derting is coming out a month before the paperback but at double the price so I'm gonna wait that one out I think. And they're offering Kindle editions on many firsts in a series but not the second. Grrr! I've just clicked the "I’d like to read this book on Kindle" button a dozen times!


message 42: by Regina (new)

Regina (reginar) | 2883 comments Are they books not released yet? If so, don't worry there will be a kindle edition. I used to click dozens of times to and post in kindle forums asking people to click but I see now that all new releases I read are being offered in kindle just the pre order is available a little later than the paper book.

I hate ebook pricing right now!


message 43: by Literary Ames (new)

Literary Ames (amyorames) | 1854 comments Are they books not released yet?

Yes. Thanks, Regina! I'll take a look closer to release. Pain in the butt though. I thought I was being forced to get hardcopies.

VAT (sales tax) has just gone up to 20% so all ebooks are more expensive now *sniffsniff*

Damn, I forgot The Darkest Surrender. Guess I need to add that to my list....


message 45: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 23917 comments Oh, no, another one I didn't know about. Off to add it to the list!


Charlotte (Buried in Books) | 557 comments Amazon hasn't even got it listed yet!


message 47: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 23917 comments Neither has BD, sigh, but I've wishlisted it so I don't forget again.


message 48: by Steph, Serious series addict (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 29279 comments :D Yay! LoTU fans! :D


Charlotte (Buried in Books) | 557 comments Oh and I forgot Envy, the third in the Fallen Angels series.


message 50: by Steph, Serious series addict (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 29279 comments Really liked #2, so I'm anxious for that one too, Charlotte.
