Waiting on Wednesday: Ghost Town (Morganville Vampires #9) by Rachel Caine

I like Rachel Caine’s world-building and the way she loves to make things very difficult for her characters. That isn’t going to stop with the ninth book in her Morganville Vampires series Ghost Town. When I talked with Caine a few weeks ago she told me how excited she was for this release. She’s been releasing books for nearly 20 years, but this is her first hardcover. Pretty awesome....

Coming from a small town (her...

September releases (a.k.a. update your TBR list) We were updating our to-be-read list and realized just how many noteworthy titles are being released in September. Honestly, we were a little blown away. With this many books on deck, we all might benefit from a couple week’s time to prioritize. September release highlights are as follows (we know we’re forgetting several, so please add in the comments!): * denotes books currently on our review...
