    For me, Kiss the Dead by LK Hamilton and Once Burned by Jeaniene Frost are the I can’t wait books. I am also going to give The Golden Lily by Richelle Mead a try, I liked Bloodlines.

    I am looking forward to the following Once Burned by Jeanine Frost, Kiss the Dead by Laurell K Hamilton, Blazing the Trail by Deborah Cooke, and Darkness Devours by Keri Arthur. I have been silently egging on the speed of the calendar so I can get my hands on these books. Cannot wait. I will be in lockdown mode. 🙂

    Kiss the Dead by Laurell K Hamilton, Once Burned by Jeanine Frost, Tempest’s Fury by Nicole Peeler. Blue-Blooded Vamp by Jaye Wells was delivered to my kindle May 22 – not sure what happened – I’m almost done and it’s been great so far.
    I’m interested in a couple more by the above mentioned are by far my favorites. Can’t wait! 😀

    Of course The Golden Lily is preordered. Also looking forward to Before I Wake by Rachel Vincent. I think I will pick up Tarnished by Karina Cooper. It looks hopeful.

    Can hardly sit still waiting on the new Frost and the latest Stacia Kane. Yippee Skippee!

    Wow, I am only on #2 of Ilona Andrews Kate Daniels series. I really want to read everything that Rachel Vincent wrote ( I loved the Shifters series) and Stacia Kane, and Nicole Peeler but Laurell K Hamilton is my priority, she is my favorite author! I am also impatiently waiting for Jeanine Frost’s newest series, I love Vlad! I have also read everything by Richelle Mead, so I will definitely be reading The Golden Lily! June is such a good book month!
