Reviews will go up as I get to the books. In the meantime click bookcovers or titles to read more. Don’t forget to check out author sites too.

Chosen by Chandra Hoffman
Harper (August 24, 2010)

Thanks to Harper Collins for a review copy. This novel sounded interesting to me and the fact it is set in my childhood hometown makes it even more enticing to me. I always enjoy seeing how authors portray familiar places in their fiction. (ISBN#9780061974298, 320pp, $25.99)

Don’t Kiss Him Goodbye (London Confidential #3) by Sandra Byrd
Tyndale House (September 27, 2010)

Thanks to Tyndale House for a review copy. (ISBN#9781414325996, 256pp, $6.99)

Within My Heart (Timber Ridge Reflections #3) by Tamera Alexander
Bethany House (September 1, 2010)

Thanks to Bethany House for a review copy. Many of my favorite historical authors are published by Bethany House. I look forward to my first taste of this author. (ISBN#9780764203916, 384pp, $14.99)

Midnight Alley & Feast of Fools (Morganville Vampires #2) by Rachel Caine
NAL Trade (September 28, 2010)

This was a purchase I look forward to rediscovering somewhere in my TBR down the road one day. (ISBN#9780451232892, 464pp, $9.99)

When Lightning Strikes & Code Name Cassandra (Vanished #1) (1-800-Where-R-You #1 & #2) by Jenny Carroll (Meg Cabot)
Simon Pulse (September 7, 2010)

This was a purchase I look forward to rediscovering somewhere in my TBR down the road one day. I enjoyed Disney’s movies based on Cabot’s Princess Diaries books so am hoping this series will prove intriguing and enjoyable. (ISBN#9781442406292, 560pp, $9.99)

I also purchased a copy of Starlighter by Bryan Davis as I passed my review copy on to another reviewer so they could participate in a scheduled tour occurring after I had already read it and written a review. I just couldn’t stand having that empty spot in my “library” I enjoy this particular author so much.

    I am so jealous of Chosen! I put it right on the wish list as soon as I saw it posted on a blog. I can’t wait to see what you think of it! Enjoy!
