A few weeks ago, I blogged about my favorite books of 2007. A bit later, I blogged about New Year’s Resolutions, one of which was to reduce the size of the TBR pile. Well, I got a bit of cash for the holidays, and instead of putting it sensibly into my ongoing house renovation, I went a little nuts at Amazon.

So let me share what I am looking forward to in 2008:

Sabrina JeffriesLet Sleeping Rogues Lie (School for Heiresses)
Lilith Saintcrow‘s To Hell and Back (Dante Valentine, Book 5)

Julie Anne Long‘s The Perils of Pleasure
Diane Gaston‘s The Vanishing Viscountess
Colleen Gleason‘s The Bleeding Dusk: The Gardella Vampire Chronicles
Meljean Brook‘s Demon Night (The Guardians, Book 5)

One of my moral imperatives is to purchase books by authors whom I wish to support, despite the proximity of the library and my cash-strapped self (see house renovation, above).

So if an author consistently wows me, I will continue to buy their books. In the years since I’ve made my commitment, authors have fallen off the list, but I’ve added more that I’ve dropped, which is a good thing (except for Lee Child; his books now come out in hardcover, and I don’t do hardcover. I’m not that moral).

I am looking forward to plenty of good reading in 2008, and yes, perhaps, a smaller library? (stop chortling, you guys!) What new releases are you looking forward to?
