On My Wishlist...

Spiderwork (In Flagrante Apocalypto 2)Spiderwork by LK Rigel
From Goodreads:

The sequel to Space Junque. 
Her fate was to hold the world together. His destiny was to tear it apart. 
As a child, Durga was chosen by the goddess to save the world from sterility and extinction. Now her eighteenth birthday approaches, and Durga must take her place among the chalices -- women made fertile by the goddess to ensure more souls for the universe. Durga's mission does not include love ... but Khai, the scion of Luxor, is unlike any man she's ever met. 
Char Meadowlark once played a role in the goddess's plans. Now her lover, Jake Ardri, heads an emerging city-state whose enemies covet everything Jake has built. As Jake navigates the uneasy waters of political intrigue, his very existence is threatened. To save him, Char must share him with a chalice ... one trained to take him to the heights of sexual ecstasy. 
In flagrante apocalypto: When the veil drops between life and oblivion, only love can save them from the abyss. 
I admit it was the artwork that attracted me to this book and there is a book called Space Junque which is the first in this series I haven't read yet. Maybe I should add the first as well. However, wouldn't go with this weeks theme. ;)

Tangled Threads (Elemental Assassin, Book 4)Tangled Threads by Jennifer Estep
TBP: April 26, 2011
From Goodreads:
I’d rather face a dozen lethal assas­sins any night than deal with some­thing as tricky, con­vo­luted, and frag­ile as my feel­ings. But here I am. Gin Blanco, the semi-retired assas­sin known as the Spi­der. Hov­er­ing out­side sexy busi­ness­man Owen Grayson’s front door like a ner­vous teenage girl. One thing I like about Owen: he doesn’t shy away from my past—or my present. And right now I have a bull’s-eye on my fore­head. Cold-blooded Fire ele­men­tal Mab Mon­roe has hired one of the smartest assas­sins in the busi­ness to trap me. Elek­tra LaFleur is skilled and effi­cient, with deadly elec­tri­cal ele­men­tal magic as potent as my own Ice and Stone pow­ers. Which means there’s a fifty-fifty chance one of us won’t sur­vive this bat­tle. I intend to kill LaFleur—or die trying—because Mab wants the assas­sin to take out my baby sis­ter, Detec­tive Bria Coolidge, too. The only prob­lem is, Bria has no idea I’m her long-lost sib­ling … or that I’m the mur­derer she’s been chas­ing through Ash­land for weeks. And what Bria doesn’t know just might get us both dead …
Ah, if you follow this blog you know I love this series. Looks like the next one after this will be called, Spider's Revenge. Oh and fans of the elemental assassin might also want to know she is going to write #6. More Gin and company! *squee!*

...and if you think I enjoy spiders... think again. Arachnophobia... I gots it. To prove my point... I give you the following commercial break:

So don't deceive and tell me what tangled web you now weave. In other words... what is on your wishlist this week? One book for all 8 arms? ;)


  1. Great covers! I hope these books land on your TBR shelf soon....

  2. I have to confess I haven't read any of the Gin Blanco books but I've heard nothing but good things about them! I will get round to the series at some point...I hope! :)

  5. I put Tangled Threads on my OMW post today as well. Oh, how I love Gin and friends. Except for the fact that everytime she talks about her restaurant and the food she makes, I want to go get bbq. So not good for the waistline!

  6. I'm hoping to start reading Jennifer Estep's books soon...just too many books and not enough time! Happy reading!

  7. TANGLED THREADS!!!! I can't wait to read that one, I love that series so much. I adored Owen in the last book, I hope we get lots more of him in this book, I think he's good for Gin and she deserves to be happy. And Finn. I hope we get lots of Finn as well. I'm so glad we're getting a 6th book too! Fabulous picks Melissa:)

  8. Jennifer will be back at the blog for a post and giveaway (just a heads up). Oh and the spider commercial isn't scary, I promise... but it's funny! ;D
