What Books I’m looking forward to in the New Year.

Several of my favorite authors and series will be coming out with new books in the next few months. I really wish there was an easy way to get a completely personalized list of author’s upcoming books. Amazon’s coming soon recommendations are ok, but not exactly what I’m looking for. Anyway, I digress. 
I am currently re-reading Victoria Laurie’s M.J. Holliday series. I just finished the first book, What's a Ghoul to Do? The newest book in the series, Ghouls Ghouls Ghouls comes out in early January 2011. It used to be pretty rare for me to re-read a book, but now that I have so many different series I follow, it’s basically necessary to remind myself of details. 
Other series I will probably be re-reading in the next month or two include the Tempest series by Nicole Peeler, her new book Tempest’s Legacy comes out in early January 2011. Madelyn Alt also has a new book in her Bewitching Mystery series coming in January, Home for a Spell. I have already mentioned Shadowfever I think by Karen Marie Moning. I absolutely can’t wait for that one!
That covers January as far as I can tell. 
In February, Angels Verdict by Mary Stanton; This Side of the Grave by Jeaniene Frost; and Pale Demon by Kim Harrison. The Frost book is part of the core Night Huntress series with Cat and Bones. Kim Harrison is amazing and I can’t wait for the latest adventures of Rachael, Ivy and Jinks. 
In April, Night of the Living Dandelion by Kate Collins; and A Hard Day’s FrightA Hard Day's Fright (A Pepper Martin Mystery) by Casey Daniels. Both of those series are well underway and I am looking forward to the next installments. I can’t forget Ghost Story by Jim Butcher. I think I am looking as forward to this as I am to the next Sookie. Speaking of Sookie Stackhouse....
In May, Dead Reckoning by Charlaine Harris is coming. Charlaine Harris is what really started me down this path of voracious reading. I had been sporadic before I read the first Sookie Stackhouse book. The only author I really followed was Diana Gabaldon. Now my list is long, most of the authors are in the mystery or urban fantasy genres.
