Happy February, everyone! Already the year feels as if it’s zooming by. I didn’t get to all the books I wanted to last month, which bums me out a bit. I’m trying to stay on schedule with my review pile as much as I can, but it looks like I’ll have some catch-up to do in February. BUT I did read my “Just For Me” book, Scarlet, which is one of my goals this year: to read a just-for-me book each month. Let’s see if I can keep it going all year! So here’s what’s on my plate this month:
For Review from NetGalley:
Carousel Sun by Sharon Lee. This is the second in a series, so I need to read book one first. I’m afraid this one may end up being pushed to next month, but we’ll see.
Black Dog by Rachel Neumeier. I’m starting this today, and I’ve already got an interview scheduled with Rachel for this coming Tuesday (see blog tours below!) Rachel is the nicest person, and I’m looking forward to getting into her book.
Lady Thief by A.C. Gaughen. Book two after Scarlet! I’m so excited to get back into her wonderful world and characters.
The Museum of Extraordinary Things by Alice Hoffman. Dying to read a new Alice Hoffman book! If you love subtle fantastical fiction, and you haven’t read anything by Hoffman, I’m begging you to pick something up. Ask me for a recommendation! (there are so many!)
Moth and Spark by Anne Leonard. I was just approved for this, and I hadn’t realized how soon it was being published. So this wasn’t on my February radar. But I’ve read some good reviews and will definitely try to get it read this month.
The Book of the Crowman by Joseph D’Lacey. I really enjoyed the first book of this series, and I’ll be interviewing Joseph this month too!
Red Rising by Pierce Brown. This is out already, I believe, so I’m a little behind. But I have an extra ARC I’ll be giving away when I post my review, so stay tuned!
For review from Author/Publisher:
Poison Dance by Livia Blackburne. This novella that precedes Midnight Thief was sent to me by the author. It’s out now, and I’m going to read it this month for sure, especially since it’s short.
Maze by J.M. McDermott. This is from Apex Publications, one of my favorite small publishers! It’s short, so I’m sure I can squeeze it in. I’ve heard it’s…strange.
Just For Me Book:
Vampire Empire Book One: The Greyfriar by Clay Griffith & Susan Griffith. I’ve been trying to read this book for two years! I’m finally going to do it. I’ve heard nothing but amazing things about this series. Let me know if you’ve read it!
Blog Tours/Author Interviews:
It’s a big month for author interviews! Rachel Neumeier, Adam Christopher and Joseph D’Lacey will all be making guest appearances, so make sure you’re subscribed to this blog so you don’t miss any of them!
The Share the Love Giveaway Hop is going on now! Click the link to see all the fabulous authors I’m highlighting, and the books you can choose from if you win!
Also, I interviewed debut author J.D. Horn, and he has offered two signed copies of The Line, his amazing book about witches in Savannah! And, the giveaway is international, so don’t forget to enter! It ends soon (Feb. 7th) so hurry!
I’ll also be starting my monthly Book Review Giveaway soon, hopefully tomorrow (I’m so behind schedule right now). I read some amazing books in January, so you won’t want to miss the chance to win one.
Well, I guess that’s enough to pile on this month, right? Have you read any of these? I’d love to know your thoughts so I can, um, prepare myself!
