New TBR

Drake Sisters books by Christine Feehan
I'm not into vampires but this sounds ok. Witchcraft I can deal with. Although the series apparently starts with a short story, I'll just dive right in with The twilight before Christmas. Christmas? meh, not my holiday. But c'mon, California climate, witchcraft, seven sisters, an earthquake that releases horrors? And a hero with the name MATT GRANITE??? This will be a must-investigate for me!

The Reincarnationist by M.J. Rose
M.J. Rose is mega-hot right now so I guess it's time for me to read one of hers. And it sounds very close to some of the apocalyptic SF I enjoy. But with a romantic twist. A time-travel evil vs. good twist. Works for me. Onto the list she goes. Bonus: I can't find a mention of vampires in the reviews.

Category 7 by Bill Evans
Sounds iffy on the writing but I do love an apocalyptic thriller. And I've now learned I have a new way to describe myself: "Apocalyptic Thriller Weather Nerd."

Thanks Publisher's Weekly!

The highly sensitive person's survival guide : essential skills for living well in an overstimulating world by Ted Zeff
Recommended by a coworker. Probably a good companion to other books I've read recently about emotional sensitivity, disease management, sleep, etc.

Rejected for the Reading List
Eat, pray, love : one woman's search for everything across Italy, India and Indonesia by Elizabeth Gilbert
I think I'm just tired of this stuff
