At the top of my wish list are books by my friends:I tried to get a copy Vicki's short story contribution to Holidays Are Hell at the mall, but they didn't have any. Next up, I'll try the downtown bookstore. Check out Vicki's recent stop over at Romance Novel TV.

Ms Zephyr's Notebook is YA, but I adore the concept and am really curious to see how it turned out. I'm hearing good things.

Jo, author of The Spymaster's Lady, recently received an early Christmas present from Smart Bitches Who Love Trashy Novels, in the form of a most awesome review. Having read bits and pieces of it over the years, I can tell you it's fantastic! This book doesn't hit shelves until January, but I'm already jonesing for it.

Also on my list: * the mmpb of A Few Demons More. I have the hardback, but I gotta get a copy of the short story. * more Kenzie and Gennaro from Dennis Lehane (I think I'm in love!) * more Stephanie Plum from Janet Evanovich * more Harry Dresden from Jim Butcher
