  1. New Orleans does make such a great setting, right?! And yes to Jack the Ripper books! Even though I haven't read very many since most of the ones I've come across weren't SFF.

    1. If I come into contact with some that cross into SFF, I'll send recommendations your way. You really might like The Jekyll Revelation because even though it was part historical, there were some paranormal elements too.

  2. There are a few things there that I expected to see- dogs, Prince, Matt Wallace and Lizzie Borden! I've read quite a few books set in New Orleans over the years and it is a good setting for anything paranormal or monster filled! I hope to be reading some Matt Wallace and a few dog books over the summer. Great list!

    1. Yep, you know me too well! I have read some awesome books set in New Orleans with the series I showed one of my favorites.

  3. What a cute post! As you know, I'm a sucker for dog books too. Now that we have Alohi, I want to read all those non-fiction dog books I've been stockpiling on my TBR for the past few years!

    Your mention of New Orleans made me think about how I love books set in the 1800s, and I totally forgot to include that on my list!

    1. Thanks, I'm trying to liven the blog up a tad. I know we both share a love of dog books. I'm finding things I forgot to add as well.

  4. Great post! I didn't know SK had a new book out and that one sounds really good so I had to go put it on my wishlist. :) I agree that anything with Jack the Ripper needs to be read. :) I still need to try Matt Wallace. :)

    1. Yea, I don't know how it will be since it a collaboration with his son Owen and I've not read any of his stuff. It's already been optioned for a movie/series so it must be getting some hype.

  5. Haaa, Love this! Naturally any new book in the Sin Du Jour series!

  6. New Orleans does make a great setting; we all already have certain expectations of what to expect.

    1. It's a perfect place for paranormal/horror/urban fantasy. I'd love to travel there and take a graveyard tour.

  7. I think I could have guessed most of these, they are so YOU! Yes for tentacles! I literally cannot turn away from a book with tentacles, lol.

    1. Yep, sadly I'm pretty predictable. Or to spin it another way, I know what I like so that can be a good thing right?

  8. New Orleans *nods* Tentacles *nods* And Lustlocked- that cracks me up. :)

    1. It's my favorite cover of all the series although they all have great covers.

  9. Love your list. I laughed about the cover contains tentacles, and then I thought about it, and those covers tend to draw me in too! - Katie

    1. See, they have a power of their own!

    1. Witches are awesome. I think it started when I read the Anne Rice Witch series in Junior High.

    1. One can never have too many books with tentacles on the cover.

    1. I know. And it's already been optioned for a movie so that has to be promising right?

  13. I love Jack the Ripper books and anything set in New Orleans! Somehow I still haven't read Stephen King though I really want too. You can have my share of the tentacles though! Great list!

    1. You should really give King a try. If you don't like a lot of horror, I would recommend starting out with Joyride. Plus it's not HUGE like some of the others and a great way to wet your feet.

  14. I'm the same way with covers featuring tentacles, haha! I find very often they are also Lovecraft related or inspired stories, so extra bonus :)

    1. I'm not even a huge Lovecraft fan so I'm not sure what my love of tentacles really says about me.

  15. Dogs, witches, and tentacles...how can you go wrong!

    I am so happy to hear that you loved About a Dog. Tulip is amazing and it was a really cute romance. I hope to post my review Friday.

    1. Yep, as long as they aren't all together - that would be rather scary. I think I'll schedule mine for Monday. I'm excited for the next one - it already has a cover. Maybe Booker T will do a feature next week on Can't Wait Wednesday.

  16. I do love some good witch stories and I do like the Jack the Ripper takes I've seen so score!

    1. You should check out "The Ripper's Wife." Really interesting fictional work.

  17. Oh, I agree (of course) about the adorable dogs on the covers! I've bought many books just because of the dog on the cover. :)
