What’s On My Plate – March 2016

On My Plate

Welcome to What’s On My Plate, where I attempt to corral my reading plans into some semblance of organization, LOL. (Really, I try, but life always seems to derail my best laid plans…) The crazy month of February is FINALLY over! My daughter’s choir Pop Show was amazing, but completely exhausting for both of us. Here’s a small taste of their competition set, in case you’re interested. The sound quality isn’t very good but at least it gives you an idea of my OTHER life:

That’s a jazzed-up version of the Eagles’ Hotel California, in case you were wondering:-)

So on to the books! This month is thankfully a little lighter on review books, although I would like to go back and read some of my February books that slipped through the cracks.

Books for review:

The Brotherhood of the Wheel by R.S. Belcher. Super excited to dive into this book, after absolutely loving Belcher’s last book, Nightwise. This story revolves around one of the characters from Nightwise. Super cool, can’t wait!

Borderline by Mishell Baker. I’m reading this right now, and all I can say is WOW. Look for my review soon!

Black City Saint by Richard A. Knaak. Oh you guys. This book has AWESOME written all over it. Elements of Feiriefolk, St. George and the Dragon,  and Prohibition bootleggers come together. I cannot wait to see how Knaak is going to pull this one off:-)

A Drop of Night by Stefan Bachmann. On the YA front, I was initially drawn to this book’s cover, but the story sounds pretty damn amazing as well.

The Steep & Thorny Way by Cat Winters. Assuming my non-Kindle review copy hasn’t expired or vanished into that shady world of digital death (come on, you KNOW what I’m talking about!), I’m thrilled to dive back into a new story by Cat Winters. She’s won all kinds of awards, and her writing is simply beautiful, not to mention she has a way of combining historical fiction with the supernatural that just WORKS.

On the Edge of Gone by Corinne Duyvis. I can’t wait to read this YA tale that centers around an autistic teen and her attempt to join a generation ship that’s leaving Earth—before a comet destroys it.

Tor.com novellas for review:

Pieces of Hate by Tim Lebbon. From what I can gather, this is actually the second book in the series (which I haven’t read). However, I believe the first story called Dead Man’s Hand is included in the eBook. Odd, but hopefully it will make sense when I read it.

The Devil You Know by K.J. Parker. I didn’t read Parker’s first Tor.com novella, but I don’t think this is connected to that in any way. Selling your soul to the devil—a story trope I never get tired of!

Forest of Memory by Mary Robinette Kowal. Not quite sure what this is about, but nonetheless I love the vague story description on Goodreads, and I’m so curious to read this!

I don’t have any blogging events scheduled as of yet, so March promises to be fairly relaxing here on the blog. I will have my Book Review Giveaway, beginning on the 14th this month, so don’t forget to check back! Otherwise, my plan is to hunker down and read read read.

What are your reading plans for the month? Do you have any of these books on your plate?

    I lust after Brotherhood of the Wheel, but have sworn to make no further book purchases until my queue is less congested. Borderline and Black City Saint both sound fantastic.

    The Pop Show looks like it was one heck of a production. And tons of work. Nice.

      Oh I wish I had that kind of determination! Alas, I can’t control my urges when it comes to acquiring books:-)

      Totally loving Borderline, I’m hoping it stays just as good as it is right now:-)
