J.D. Tyler Black Moon blog tour and giveaway

My keeper shelf is the latest stop on J.D. Tyler's blog tour for the release of Black Moon. I've had Black Moon pre-ordered for ages so I'm really looking forward to diving right into it! As it nears the end of 2012 and everyone is busy writing list of their favourite covers and books of 2012 J.D has kindly agreed to tell us about her favourite books of 2012 and there's a little giveaway too.

When My Keeper Shelf asked me to reveal my favourite books of 2012, I wondered how on earth I would ever whittle down the list! There are so many awesome books and so few hours in the day. But I managed to come up with a list that reflects what I enjoy as a reader, what makes me want to curl up with a glass of wine. This diverse list, in my humble opinion, represents the best of my favourite genres.

Without further ado, my 7 favourite books of 2012:

1. COLD DAYS by Jim Butcher (Dresden Files)

2. THE SEVEN WONDERS THAT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE by Glenn Beck and Dr. Keith Ablow (self-help)

3. GILLIFLOWERS by Gillibran Brown (diary/autobiography)

4. STOLEN PREY by John Sandford (Lucas Davenport series)

5. CRUCIBLE OF FATE by Mary Calmes (m/m paranormal romance, shifters)

6. HEART OF ATLANTIS by Alyssa Day (The Warriors of Poseidon series)

7. THE SIREN by Tiffany Reisz

J.D. Tyler is an award-winning, multi-published author who writes for New American Library under three pseudonyms. Whether this is due to an overdose of ambition or a multiple personality affliction, she’ll never tell.

J.D. writes dark, sexy paranormal romance and has a huge thing for shifters, vampires, the Fae, and just about everything else that goes bump and grind in the night. She can’t get enough of those dangerous supernatural heroes, and the fun of creating her own was just too much temptation to resist… so she didn’t. J.D. doesn’t do self-denial.

When she isn’t writing, J.D.’s idea of a good time certainly isn’t cleaning house (sniff), bungee jumping (not in this lifetime, or the next), or camping (her idea of “roughing it” is a slow bellboy). She enjoys reading, being pampered like the diva she is, and spending time with her awesome family. She lives in Texas with her two teenagers.

Founded by a group of former Navy SEALS, the Alpha Pack is a top-secret team of wolf shifters with Psy powers tasked with eliminating the most dangerous predators in the world. But the gift of their abilities comes at a price…

After a massacre decimates half his team and leaves him crippled, Jaxon Law must relearn how to fight—and battle the anger and guilt threatening to overwhelm him. But when he rescues a beautiful woman who reawakens his primal instincts, Jax is unprepared for the dangers that lie ahead.

On the run from her employer, brilliant lab assistant Kira Locke has evidence that leads the Alpha Pack on a hunt for someone targeting human civilians with Psy abilities. And as Jax and Kira circle both the killer and each other, Jax will have to decide if the deep connection he feels with Kira is worth breaking the ultimate shifter rule—because bonding with Kira means putting his abilities at risk, and they might be the only tools he has to keep his mate alive…

A group of former Navy SEALS, the Alpha Pack is a top-secret team of wolf shifters with Psy powers combating the greatest dangers in the world. But sometime those dangers are more intimate than they bargained for…

After a mission goes wrong, Aric Savage is taken prisoner. Half-dead and despairing, he makes a stunning discovery: his Pack mate Micah Chase, who was reported dead, is a fellow captive. When the Alpha team goes into full-rescue mode, accompanying them is an absolute stunner with sable hair–and a spine of solid steel.

LAPD officer and Psy Dreamwalker Rowan Chase has one priority: her brother Micah’s recovery. Still, she can’t help but be drawn to Aric, the ruggedly handsome wolf shifter who pleasures her as no man ever has–however fleeting their affair is destined to be. But when Aric’s life is endangered, Rowan must ask herself what she’s willing to sacrifice in the name of love, for the man fated to be her Bondmate.

    My favorite read of 2012 is Lothaire by Kresley Cole. I loved to watch that story unfold and how Lothaire transformed in order to open his heart to love. Don't get me wrong, he's still a d-bag...but now a more lovable one!

  10. My favorite book of 2012 would be Tangle of Need (Book 11 in the Psy/Changeling series) by Nalini Singh. I'd been looking forward to reading it for ages to find out what happened to Hawke and Sienna from Kiss of Snow and Ms Singh didn't disappoint :)

  27. I have read so many great books this year, but one of my favorites is North of Need by Laura Kaye. :)

  28. I can't think right now what my favorite book of the year was. I read a ridiculous number of books earlier this year and then about the time school started back up for the kids, I ran out of time to read. I don't think I have finished a book in 3 months. Hoping to get some reading done over the holidays!

  29. I have not read that much this year. Took a break from reading and am now starting back up. I loved Die for Me.

  32. Gabriel's Inferno, still can't believe this book wrote by man :D


I love getting comments so thanks for taking the time to leave one.
