Musing Mondays January 2, 2012

This week’s musing asks…
What is/are the first book(s) you’re reading for the new year?

I have already read two books and am half way through a third.  Two are novella length and one is a full length novel.
I've Got Your Number by Sophie Kinsella 
is a ARC I got from Amazon Vine.  I saw a short review on another book blog and it sounded cute so when it was available 
on Vine I requested the book.  This is 
the first time I have read a book by 
Kinsella.  It was cute and a short 
read.  I did like that here HEA 
mentioned that the relationship 
would only last if they worked on it.
Galaxy Girls by Edie Ramer is a Science Fiction Romance.  I am about half way 
through the book and need to hurry up 
with this post so I can get back to it.  
It is very character driven.  Here is what Goodreads has to say:
"Genetically created to be broodmares, Phyrne Galaxy and her mother, aunt and cousin don't
 need men, they need freedom. They escaped 
from the warring planet of Kergeron to Earth, where Phyrne’s aunt's vision of winning money
in a New Jersey casino comes true. Too bad 
her aunt's precog didn't show the hoods 
waiting outside with guns. But Phyrne 
has her own weapon, more powerful 
than bullets. She's ovulating."
Deadly Pursuit by Nina Croft is the second
 book in the Blood Hunter series.  Croft 
mixes the paranormal with science fiction 
for a great story.  This time our hero is 
Jon, the escaped assassin who just happens 
to be a werewolf.  Here is what Goodreads 
has to say about Deadly Pursuit.
"Breaking assassin Jonathon Decker out of a maximum security prison on Trakis One 
seemed like a good idea at the time. Now, 
pursued across space by the two most
 powerful factions in the universe, 
the crew of El Cazador are having second thoughts. They'd like to give him back. Unfortunately, that no longer seems an 
Jon is used to working alone. Now, he's 
stuck on the space cruiser El Cazador 
until he can work out just what he's 
supposed to know that puts him on 
everybody's most-wanted-dead list. 
He s not happy that the crew includes
 a runaway priestess with designs 
on his virtue such as it is. Jon likes 
women, but he gave up the role of 
protector a long time ago, and Alexia, 
High Priestess of the Church of
 Everlasting Life, is an accident waiting to happen."
This is a fun series and I am looking forward 
to the next book.
