It’s been about three weeks since my last Over-Booked, which is a good thing, because it means not only have I not been buying books, but my new review books are coming in at a slower pace. Part of that is due to my blogging resolution to try to request less review books, and not stress myself out because I can’t read them all, which is a goal I know MANY of you share, because I’ve read your goals too! Nevertheless, some awesomeness found its way to my TBR pile. Here we go (click on the title links to read the story descriptions):
Physical books for review:
Burning Midnight by Will McIntosh. (Delacorte Press, February 2016). Super excited to be invited to review this book. I have yet to jump on the Will McIntosh bandwagon, but I hear he’s FANTASTIC.
Masks and Shadows by Stephanie Burgis (Pyr, April 2016). This book is getting a ton of buzz, and I can’t wait to read it. Plus, PRETTY COVER!
Best of Apex Magazine: Volume 1, edited by Jason Sizemore and Leslie Conner. (Apex Books, January 2016). I’m so excited to read these stories, in fact, I’ve already read about half of them. I’m thrilled to be posting an interview on Monday with Jason and Leslie, so don’t miss it. And is it weird to be excited to have Jason Sizemore’s business card? 🙂
Big thanks to Delacorte, Pyr and Apex!
Digital books for review:
Down with the Shine by Kate Karyus Quinn. (HarperTeen, April 2016). This was a Waiting on Wednesday pick a few months ago, and so of course I grabbed it when it popped up on Edelweiss.
Central Station by Lavie Tidhar (Tachyon, May 2016). I was invited to review this title, and I immediately said yes! I’ve never read Lavie Tidhar, but I did read an Apex anthology that he helped edit, so I’m curious to see how he writes himself. He won the World Fantasy Award for a book called Osama.
Goldenfire (Darkhaven #2) by A.F.E. Smith. (HarperVoyager, January 2016). I really enjoyed Smith’s debut, Darkhaven, and I’m looking forward to more of her fascinating world building! Plus, how cool is that cover??
Big thanks to the publishers and Anna Smith for these copies!
How about you? Are you planning to read any of these books?
