Making Chase
by Lauren Dane

... the Chase Brothers series from Lauren Dane. After I met the characters in Once and Again, each living their happily ever afters, I stopped by Amazon to buy all four Chase Brothers e-books. I’ve started with the last in the series, Making Chase, because who can resist reading about a girl from the wrong side of the tracks who turns her life around?

A Beginner's Guide to Rakes
by Suzanne Enoch

... picking up this new release from Suzanne Enoch. The things I have been hearing from other RT editors makes me want to dive into this read. Whitney is touting the book's "old school meets new school" style of historical romance and hasn't talked about anything else for days!

Tangle of Need
by Nalini Singh

 the next book in Nalini Singh's Psy/Changeling series. I can't wait to read about Riaz and his mate is is already married to someone else. But, I also think it is seriously unfair that the author has already revealed the cover, because Tangle of Need won't pub until next summer. How am I going to wait that long?

Ringer

... Sarah Michelle Gellar's performance on Ringer, her CW show that just premiered. As a long-time SMG fan and a Pretty Little Liars devotee, I've been excited for this mystery since I first heard about the project!

Lisel & Po
by Lauren Oliver

...  YA author Lauren Oliver's middlegrade novel that comes out in October. I adored Before I Fall and Delirium, so I can't wait to see her take on this new genre. But she's set herself a pretty high bar!

Daybreak
by Ellen Connor

... the third in the Dark Age Dawning novels by Ellen Connor. I can't get enough of this series' post-apocalyptic setting and complex characters. Right now, the book’s December 6 pub date seems centuries away!

Beauty and the Werewolf
by Mercedes Lackey

... part of the Lackey’s Five Hunred Kingdoms series, the reviewer called this RT Top Pick “explicitly feminist." Plus, it’s based on one of my favorite fairy tales, Little Red Riding Hood, so I knew I needed to grab a copy of this new release.

The Iron Duke
by Meljean Brook

... when Whitney found out that Brook’s second Iron Seas book is releasing in November, she immediately handed me the series first, October 2010’s RT Seal of Excellence winner. She called it the best steampunk she’s ever read, so clearly, I have to read this book.

 Penguin: Pain and Prejudice
by Gregg Hurwitz and Szymon Kudranski

... this upcoming DC Comics’ miniseries is based on the infamous Batman villain and is written by Gregg Hurwitz. When I found out this fiction author was penning a comic based on my favorite villain, it was like DC decided to send me an early Christmas present in October!
