Ruby’s Bookish Bundles is a new feature I’m starting here on the blog. In it, I’m going to post about three books:
- Want Now: One recently released or already published title I’m lusting after.
- Want Soon: One upcoming title I’m looking forward to, based on things I’ve heard, the cover, and the description.
- Want Someday: One upcoming title I’ve heard about that sounds like it could be interested but is so far off into the future it doesn’t even have a cover yet.
I love discovering new books, and I love sharing about the books I discover. However, I’ve been wanting to do something a little different from (and more involved than) a WoW post, so I created this new feature for myself. Anyone is welcome to participate, or to share their own wants. If you do so on your own blog, leave a link so I can visit!
Everyone knows I’m Team Werewolf, so I decided that it was time to do a Bookish Bundle based on my favorite supernatural creature. There are a lot of titles to choose from, but I was able to whittle it down to just three. There’s a number up there in the title, though, because I’m hopin’ and prayin’ that this will only be the first of many a #NakedWerewolf-themed Bookish Bundle.
I passed this one by when I first saw it on the shelves of my local Borders (yeah, that long ago). People seem to really like this series, though, so I think it may be time for me to check it out…

Everything about Jessie Gillmansen’s life changed when her mother died. Now even her hometown of Junction is changing. Mysterious dark things are happening. All Jessie wants is to avoid more change. But showing a hot new guy around Junction High, she’s about to discover a whole new type of change. Pietr Rusakova is more than good looks and a fascinating accent—he’s a guy with a dangerous secret. And his very existence is sure to bring big trouble to Jessie’s small town.
It seems change is the one thing Jessie can’t avoid.

By far one of my favorite #NakedWerewolf series, I’ll probably be reading the Mercy Thompson books until the bitter end. I’m looking forward to reading about Mercy and Adam’s married life, and to seeing their relationship evolve.

Shapeshifter Mercy Thompson’s life is calming down, at least enough that she can focus on mundane matters like Black Friday sales. But on her return, Mercy is unable to contact her mate, Alpha Adam Hauptman, or the other members of their pack. All she knows is that Adam is angry and in pain. With the werewolves fighting a political battle to gain acceptance from the public, Mercy fears Adam’s disappearance may be related – and that he and the pack are in serious danger. Outclassed and on her own, Mercy may be forced to seek assistance from the most unlikely of allies: the vampire seethe.

Whoo, boy! I just about cheered my new kitty’s ears off when I saw that the next Immortals After Dark book would hallmark a return to the Lykae. I can’t wait for Uilleam’s story. He’s been a minor character in some of the other books, and I believe he found his mate in one of the books I haven’t read yet. Good thing there’s plenty of time for me to catch up on the series.

From KC’s Facebook page: S&S website, my nemesis, you’ve scooped me again!
Yes, my next IAD hardcover is titled MACRIEVE and yes, it’s coming out May 14th.Don’t worry—Nix, Lanthe, and Furie will all get books! But Uilleam’s story fits better into the overall Accession timeline (plus my editor is jonesing for poor Uilleam, who we last saw escaping from the facility.) More news soon!
As always, feel free to recommend any titles you’ve come across, are waiting on, or have just plain piqued your interested. This goes quadruple for #NakedWerewolf books!
