Keys to the Repository
by Melissa de la Cruz
Published by Hyperion Book CH
Release Date: June 29, 2010

Lavish parties. Passionate meetings in the night. Bone-chilling murders. Midterms. The day-to-day life of Schuyler Van Alen and her Blue Bloods friends (and enemies) is never boring. But there's oh-so-much more to know about these beautiful and powerful teens. Below the streets of Manhattan, within the walls of the Repository, exists a wealth of revealing information about the vampire elite that dates back before the Mayflower. In a series of short stories, journal entries, and never-before-seen letters, New York Times bestselling author Melissa de la Cruz gives her hungry fans the keys to the Repository and an even more in-depth look into the secret world of the Blue Bloods. Won't you come inside?

Bloody Valentine: A Blue Bloods Novella
by Melissa de la Cruz
Published by ATOM
Release Date: October 1, 2010

Vampires have powers beyond human comprehension: strength that defies logic, speed that cannot be captured on film, the ability to shapeshift and more. But in matters of the heart, no one, not even the strikingly beautiful and outrageously wealthy Blue Bloods, has total control. In Bloody Valentine, bestselling author Melissa de la Cruz offers readers a new story about the love lives of their favorite vamps - the passion and heartache, the hope and devastation, the lust and longing. Combined with all the glitz, glamour, and mystery fans have come to expect, this is sure to be another huge hit in the Blue Bloods series.

Misguided Angel (Blue Bloods, Book 5)
by Melissa de la Cruz
Published by Hyperion Book CH
Release Date: October 5, 2010

After inheriting the dark Van Alen Legacy, Schuyler fled to Florence--with her forbidden love, Jack. Now the two of them must embark on the mission Schuyler was destined to complete: to find and protect the seven gates that guard earth from Lucifer, lord of the Silverbloods.

As the Blue Blood enclave weakens yet further, fate leads Schuyler closer to a terrifying crossroads--and a choice that will determine the destiny of all vampires.

I can't really decide because I'm just THAT in love with the Blue Bloods series. Obviously, I want to continue the story ... which will happen when Misguided Angel comes out ... but I'll take what I can get with the guide and the novella. I am into several series right now, but this one pretty much takes top priority to all the others. I am in love with Blue Bloods. ;)

Happy Release Day!

There are many, many books coming out today and all are wonderful. (For the list, click here!) However, I have to point out that today is also the release date of the newest book in the series that I am absolutely in love with: The Lords of the Underworld! This go-round, it's Aeron's story, which I'm super excited about. The next book in the LotU series is The Darkest Lie, Gideon's story. Gideon's my favorite Lord, so I'm stoked - but for now, I'm happy to FINALLY hear Aeron get his H.E.A.!

The Darkest Passion (Lords of the Underworld)
by Gena Showalter
Mass Market Paperback, 384 Pages
Published by HQN Books
Released Today!, May 25, 2010

For weeks, Aeron, once an immortal warrior of the gods, has sensed a disturbing presence. A presence about to make herself known. Olivia is an angel–a demon-assassin–and rather than destroy him as ordered, she chooses to save him. The price, however, is high. Her wings are cruelly removed, and her immortality stripped. But for Aeron, who has always despised weakness, trusting–and loving–Olivia will mean ruin.

New Posts Coming Soon!

Sorry guys! It's been crazy hectic around here lately and I hate to say that my blog has suffered because of it. I'm trying to get the hang of this whole "housewife" thing, as well as trying to utilize the time to work on some house projects that have been needing done for quite some time now. Add to this that I'm having the most awful time trying to get my debit cards fixed (I'm on two weeks of attempts now), I'm trying to get paperwork done for my husband and his benefits, AND I'm trying to get a week's worth of house chores and errands done in three days because of my trip out of town to see and help my parents with a lot of things there. Ugh ... I'm exhausted! Oh, and did I mention that I have a stack of about a dozen books that need to be read within the next two weeks? It's a little overwhelming. However, tonight, I should be caught up on some meme posts, reviews, and I'm hoping to get around to comment on some blogs, too. Hopefully. So, just be patient ... I should be on a regular routine again soon. Thanks!!
