It's amazing how often that kind of thing can happen. You pick up something written by a new-to-you author, and then you start seeing that name everywhere. Other books of theirs pop up, interviews suddenly get published, etc. and for the next few months you find yourself reading from the now-not-new author's catalog.

I don't know how to explain it, or why it happens, but I love it when it does.


I seem to be on every bookish mailing list and newsletter and now I see the new Luisa Luna all over the place. She has two books now with these characters but several other book as well and I am not sure if I ever noticed her before. There are SO many mystery/thriller writers out there these days, though, so maybe not very surprising. It is always nice to make a new discovery--especially one that clicks so nicely!


I feel like my reading is off to a slow start too but hopefully it'll pick up soon. I think I'm especially feeling it because I was sick and when I'm down with a cold I have a hard time reading. Anyway, I'm really looking forward to discovering this author. I didn't realize The Janes was the second in the series.

I think I first heard about The Janes on a podcast (What Should I Read Next or He Read She Read). Not sure which of those two, but Louisa Luna started popping up right after that. I just finished Two Girls Down and have my post scheduled for tomorrow. I can't wait to get my hands on The Janes. Isn't it fun to discover a new series, especially early on? I do hope she continues with these characters. Vega reminds me a little bit of Jessica Jones (Marvel superhero).


I hope you are feeling better! This has been such a rough flu and cold season and even books are not so appealing when you are not feeling well. I can't wait to get a copy of The Janes as I really liked Two Girls Down. The characters are really appealing! I think you would like this first book as well!


I love Vega--it will be really interesting to learn more about her personality. I loved the first book and look forward to the next one. I am curious to see how their relationship develops. And Nell is great, too! I agree--so nice to find a new series and one that is still at the beginning!
