New Releases 5/27

Ok, this week is a big one so here are some of the new releases hitting shelves:

Severance Package by Duane Swierczynski - the ultimate in workplace drama! What do you do when you find out you're being laid off permanently? Topping my TBR list.
Bobbie Faye's Kinda Sorta Not Really Family Jewels by Toni McGee Causey - Bobbie Faye is one tough south Louisiana chick, and she's freaking hilarious! I'll be reviewing this one a bit late, but look for it this week.
The Touch of Twilight by Vicki Pettersson - third in her amazing Signs of the Zodiac series. If you aren't reading, shame on you.
No One Lives Forever by Jordan Dane - ties up the story began in No One Left to Tell.
Not Another Bad Date by Rachel Gibson - a cute contemporary romance. 
Shadow of Power by Steve Martini - latest legal drama to feature Paul Madriani and this time he has to find out who killed the author of a controversial new book. 
Blood Noir by Laurel K. Hamilton - I've only read the first in the series, but you can check out Tez Miller's review here
Reapers by John Connolly - newest to feature Charlie Parker. 
Blue Smoke and Murder by Elizabeth Lowell 
Weddings Can be Murder by Christie Craig
Weddings From Hell 4 stories by Kim Harrison, Jeaniene Frost, Terri Garey, and Kathryn Smith
Coffin County by Gary A. Braunbeck - creepy tale that seems to follow Mr. Hands and Keepers
Safety of Secrets by Delaune Michel - it's a Lake Charles week! Delaune is a literary author who hails from south LA (just like me and Toni Causey). She's related to Andre Dubus and James Lee Burke.
Black Out by Lisa Unger - latest thriller from the fantastic Lisa Unger, this one is a stand-alone.
Panic in Level 4 by Richard Preston - the man who grossed us out with true-life thriller The Hot Zone returns with more icky and weird virology. A must buy for me. No one writes non-fiction this exciting. 

On DVD: 
Ramo - I heart Sly!
Cleaner - latest Samuel L. Jackson film. He plays a crime scene cleaner who may have accidentally gotten rid of some crucial evidence in a murder. 

New reviews up at bookbitch.com
Shadow of Power, The Touch of Twilight, No One Lives Forever, and Not Another Bad Date

What I'm reading now: All of my leftovers from last week! It's crazy right now as I try to wrap up GA and not think about the fact that my other is in NYC for a month!
