Description: Fast Five Friday is a new meme we are starting at Reader Noir! Basically, you choose five books you are looking forward to reading and tell us a little bit about them. You can share your list in the comments or link to your blog!

The first book that I am looking forward to is by  ANN AGUIRRE :  This is the second book in THE DRED CHRONICLES.  I am excited to find out what Dresdemona is up too. In the last book she was sent to Perdition a prison ship. On this prison ship the inmates are governed by different groups. They are always fighting between these groups to expand their territory.   The first book was really great.

Toby thought she understood her own past; she thought she knew the score.

She was wrong.

It’s time to learn the truth.

  1. Eeek. Lost my comments, so starting over. Have to make it brief, though. Time constraints! Great post, and I think you’ll love The Winter Long. One of my favorite series, and the strongest books, so far. Happy, happy!

    I want to read:
    1. A Witch With No Name, the final book in the Rachel Morgan/Hollows series by Kim Harrison. A series which has grown stronger and more interesting since the start, though I still have problems with some of the characters. So while it’s not perfect, it has kept me entertained for years, and I have a vested interest in the outcome. (My interest has pointy ears, and fly-away dandelion hair, and goes by name of Trent Kalamack.)

    1. Saint Odd, the last installment in the Odd Thomas series, by Dean Koontz. It won’t be out until January, but it’s marked on every one of my calendars. If you haven’t met Oddie, you’ve missed one of the most endearing characters in Urban Fantasy.

    2. Personal, by Lee Child. Jack Reacher is a force of nature and I hope he never, ever stops being exactly who he is now. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

    3. Blue Lily, Lily Blue, the third book of The Raven Cycle, Maggie Stiefvater’s darkly riveting tale of friends and magic, and hearts and souls. No one writes like Stiefvater. She’s a genius.

    4. A Plunder of Souls, Book 3 of The Thieftaker Chronicles, by D. B. Jackson. This is an off-the-wall look at magic in the pre-Revolutionary War days of early America. Familiar names from our country’s history are woven into these stories seamlessly, and give them a flavor not quite like anything else. Start with Thieftaker, and go back in time. It’s a great ride.

    • I read Witch With No Name. It is great. I am still trying to write the review without spoilers. It is very hard.

      • It’s one of those books I’m scared to read, for fear that things won’t turn out like I think they should, and I’ll have to throw it down on the floor and stomp on it. 😀

        I was terrified to read the last Kate Daniels book, Magic Breaks, because I knew something big was happening, and I was afraid it might be something I would hate. I pestered a friend of mine for reassurances that wouldn’t spoil it for me, and she met the challenge. I’m so glad I read it, now. It surprised me, yes, but in a way I can live with for now. Add that to how happy the new Chicagoland book and The Winter Long made me, and I’m doing okay with my series, so far. 🙂

      • You will like the book and how it turns out. No stomping required. 😉

      • Thank you!! Whew. I wasn’t sure what to expect…I was so disappointed in the last cover, wherein Trent looked not one iota like he has been described countless times through the series. (It left me suspecting he was really…ready?…an Elvish Impersonator! Haha.) The book itself delivered, so I had hopes that the wrongness of that cover was just a fluke, and the RIGHTNESS of the last book would prevail.

      • You are welcome and it won’t dissapoint point. In fact by the end of the book you will be smiling.

      • Think I’ll go order it right now! (I’d been postponing it. I’m such an idiot!)

      • I ordered the hardback from b&n for the autograph copy.

      • I thought about it earlier, then forgot. I do have her autograph on two of her books, including the wonderfully clever Hollows Insider, from a signing she did last year. She was very gracious! I keep hoping more authors will do them in our area. Seems like Orlando would be a big enough draw, but so far, not many have shown up that I’ve heard about.

      • I haven’t heard of any either. If I do I will let you know.
