The Bitter Kingdom by Rae CarsonMay old friends be forgot? We don't think so! We're celebrating our favorite reads with four days of the Best of 2013. We asked our bloggers for their favorite books of 2013, with one stipulation, they had to be new to them and not necessarily new to 2013. We know we got a few recommendations to add to our to be read piles and it's a great way to feed those readers you hopefully get for Christmas!

Check back every other weekday between now and Christmas for all of the blogger recommendations! See the picks from Day 1Day 2, and Day 4.

Rae Alley:

Bitter Kingdom (by Rae Carson) would be my top read. It's billed as a YA, but like so many YA titles lately it isn't just for young adults. There's a bit of finding yourself and making sure you know your purpose in the world throughout this book (and the previous two in the trilogy) but what was interesting to me was seeing how we got to the happy ever after for our heroine and her captain. You start the novel with her running to his rescue and him unaware of whether or not she really is coming to save him as it might mean her trading places with him and how does he really feel about that...and this pace of action stays throughout.

[Action-packed is the way we like it!...]

Anne Bishop's Written in Red
Cranky wolf shifter meets fun and adorable magically gifted heroine, what's not to love?

Nalini Singh's Heart of Obsidian
The heroine has an amazing name and the hero isn't too shabby either.

Rainbow Rowell's Fangirl
For every time you squeed or sighed over something and nobody understood you, finally there's a book for it.

Shield of Winter by Nalini SinghToday we are thrilled to exclusively reveal the cover for the thirteenth book in Nalini Singh's Psy-Changeling series, Shield of Winter. Here is the blurb:

Assassin. Soldier. Arrow. That is who Vasic is, who he will always be. His soul drenched in blood, his conscience heavy with the weight of all he’s done, he exists in the shadows, far from the hope his people can almost touch—if only they do not first drown in the murderous insanity of a lethal contagion. To stop the wave of death, Vasic must complete the simplest and most difficult mission of his life.

For if the Psy race is to survive, the empaths must wake…

Having rebuilt her life after medical “treatment” that violated her mind and sought to suffocate her abilities, Ivy should have run from the black-clad Arrow with eyes of winter frost. But Ivy Jane has never done what she should. Now, she’ll fight for her people, and for this Arrow who stands as her living shield, yet believes he is beyond redemption. But as the world turns to screaming crimson, even Ivy’s fierce will may not be enough to save Vasic from the cold darkness…

Shield of Winter will be released June 4, 2014.

The Darkest Whisper by Gena ShowalterOkay, it might be a little obvious that I like Kresley Cole. Her Immortals After Dark series is hot, sexy, complex, and action-packed—so what’s not to love! While we’re waiting for the next couple in the IAD series (and I assume you’ve finished the latest book in her Arcana Chronicles), there are a lot of authors who can supplement your shelves while you wait. There’s a lot to love and a lot of authors who offer up some of the same elements, so if you like…

I Can Show You the World…Kresley’s Worldbuilding

All of these books mentioned have spectacular worldbuilding—an element essential for any good paranormal romance. The Lords of the Underworld series by Gena Showalter offers up a world filled with strong warriors possessed with the demons that escaped Pandora’s Box—a box the warriors were charged with, and failed to, protect. For those in the know, Gena and Kresley are best writer buddies in real life. What could this mean, you ask? There has been a lot of overlap between the series which makes reading the two series an even bigger joy—Nix makes an appearance in Gena’s Darkest Whisper, the LotU get a passing mention in Lothaire and Cole’s Carrow has a YouTube video in The Darkest Lie. That alone would be a reason for any Cole fan to read this series, but it’s also worth reading for it’s dark world, captivating and tortured alpha heroes, and the heroines who change them and literally accept their demons.

Question mark image by Eleaf via FlickrToday we've got two of our bloggers talking about who Nalini Singh might next write about in her imaginative Psy-Changeling series—Tori Benson, who kicks off the discussion, and Jennifer Porter, who joins Tori later on. Thanks, ladies!

Tori: Nalini Singh’s Psy-Changeling series is one of my top ten YOU MUST READ paranormal romance series to date. I absolutely adore the world Ms. Singh has created and find myself rereading this entire series often; each book is filled with non-stop action, suspense and mystery, but is balanced nicely with hot steamy romance, and lighthearted moments. Dynamic characters and multiple interactions throughout the series allows us to get to know them intimately. It’s everything you could want in a series and more.

This series is set in a futuristic alternative Earth and populated by three groups—the Changelings, the Psy and humans. The changelings are shape shifters. The Psy are humans with psychic powers who have been taught from birth to suppress their emotions. The Psy is the largest and most powerful ruling body on Earth. The continuous arc tells of the battles and eventual war brewing between the three groups and the struggles within each group. Each story features a different hero and heroine who meet, fall in love, and commit to one another in all ways possible.

[So many stories left to tell...]

Heart of Obsidian by Nalini SinghEach month, we ask our bloggers to share the best thing they’ve read (or things, plural, if our bloggers declare a tie ’cause they just can’t choose). It doesn’t have to be a new book, as evidenced below; just something that made the month sparkle a bit more.

Without further ado, here’s the installment for June 2013 (and if you’ve missed any, be sure to check out past recs via the related posts section at the bottom of the post):

Jennifer Myers

Heart of Obsidian by Nalini Singh was my most anticipated book of the year.  That is saying a lot for a book where I didn’t even know the name of the hero or heroine until a couple of weeks before release day. It didn’t disappoint. Ms. Singh gave us a truly epic love story combined with breakingtaking steps in the fall of the PsyNet. Neither plot nor romance was sacrificed for the other when it came to this book.  We were given so many answers; who Kaleb had been looking for, the identity of the Ghost, what will happening to the remaining council members, what happens with Pure Psy, yet we were also left with questions we all are desperate to solve. Ms. Singh totally outdid herself with this one.  Now to find out the identity of the next hero...

[The rest of the best...]

Heart of Obsidian by Nalini SinghNalini Singh
Heart of Obsidian
Berkley / June 4, 2013 / $25.95 print / $12.99 digital

A dangerous, volatile rebel, hands stained bloodred.

A woman whose very existence has been erased.

A love story so dark, it may shatter the world itself.

A deadly price that must be paid.

The day of reckoning is here.

A recently widowed woman was at a function with a couple, and their conversation turned to a mutual acquaintance. The woman began to say some particularly nasty things about the acquaintance, before she realized that there was a shocked expression on the husband’s face. “I said something bad,” she said. “I’m sorry. My husband was my filter.”

Just like this widow’s husband served as her filter, the heroine of Heart of Obsidian serves as the hero’s conscience. Clearly, being someone’s conscience in a contemporary society might bring questions of many sorts. Relationships in contemporary society aren’t meant to serve as the boundary line between good and evil. But nobody ever said that Nalini Singh’s Psy-Changeling series took place in contemporary society. It takes place in a futuristic alternate universe where life and standards are slightly different from our own.

[Remember, always let you conscience be your guide...]

Circus of the Damned by Laurell K. HamiltonOnce upon a time, there was a Big Bad Wolf. He ate grandma, remember? Terrorized poor old Red right out of her hood?

Then he got all smexied up, became either a were or a shapeshifter (because they’re different, you know—it’s that whole moon thing), and turned into a romantic hero. Big alpha males who change into a beast to defeat the bad guys and a cuddly puppy when confronted with the right woman. What’s not to love?

The first non-horror shifter I remember reading was Laurell K. Hamilton’s Richard in the Anita Blake series. Richard Zeeman was handsome, tortured, and total hotness on two legs or four…well, until he got whiny and annoying. But he had a good run of books before that happened.

Since then, werewolves have remained at the head of the were-critter/shapeshifter pack as the alphas of paranormal romance and urban fantasy, but they’ve gradually had to learn to share the spotlight with some other shifters. Some are equally sexy. (I mean, who doesn’t love a big old were-tiger? Was I the only one shouting for Sookie to stick with Quinn? I think not.) Others are, well, downright bizarre.

[Do you have a favorite type of shifter?...]
