Bookstore Beat: Mid-August 2011 Report

Confessions of an Improper Bride by Jennifer HaymoreSo what’s bringing people down to New York City’s Posman books in the midst of this crazy August heat? Plenty of cool things to read:

Miranda Neville’s Amorous Education of Celia Seton and new-to-us author Jennifer Haymore’s Confessions of an Improper Bride are making historical readers across the board very happy. Liz Carlyle’s newest, The Bride Wore Scarlet, is fueling sales of Carlyle’s backlist titles, including No True Gentleman, Two Little Lies and the first in this new series, One Touch of Scandal.

Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Retribution and Thea Harrison’s Storm’s Heart are topping paranormal readers’ lists. Readers are also looking to catch up with Nalini Singh’s Guild Hunter series and titles they’d missed by Jessa Slade and Molly Harper.

Too Hot to Touch by Louisa EdwardsIn contemporary, Louisa Edwards’s Too Hot to Touch, Christina Dodd’s Secrets of Bella Terra and Rochelle Alers’s The Blackstone Legacy are all making customers happy. Readers who loved Cindy Gerard’s With No Remorse have been snapping up backlist titles by Tara Janzen and Roxanne St. Claire.

Other customers are celebrating the life and career of L.A. Banks by buying titles in her Crimson Moon and Vampire Huntress series as well as Surrender the Dark and Sizzle and Burn, which she wrote as Alexis Grant...

What have you been reading in August that you’ve enjoyed? Let me know! And come back at the end of the month where we’ll take a look at the list of books coming out next month.

I really enjoyed The Many Sins of Lord Cameron by Jennifer Ashley. It came out last week. I've been reading the whole series as they appear, one left I think. They're set in mid-Victorian times whih makes a nice change from Regency backgrounds.
