These are the books that I’ve acquired in the last three weeks, and I can’t wait to read all of them:-)
Flying by Carrie Jones. A surprise arrival from Tor Teen, I’ve actually had my eye on this. It sounds like a bunch of fun, aliens and cheerleaders and more, and I’m getting a Buffy vibe from it:-) Thank you Tor Teen!
The Root by Na’amen Gobert Tilahun. This was a surprise from Night Shade Books, and I’m intrigued! Gritty urban fantasy, sounds like something I’m in the mood for right now, in fact:-)
Song of the Deep by Brian Hastings. Middle grade isn’t my normal go-to, but the awesome publicist from Sterling Publishing offered me a copy. It’s a gorgeous little hardcover (seriously, all of Sterling’s books are gorgeous!) and the publication of the book coincides with the release of a video game of the same name. Thank you Sterling!
Bite by K.S. Merbeth. So happy to see this in the mail, big thanks to Orbit! And for some reason, I was sent two copies, so if someone in the U.S is dying to read/review this, let me know and I’ll send you one.
Time Siege by Wesley Chu. A surprise finished copy from Tor, thank you! I’ll be reading this VERY soon, so stay tuned for a review.
The Waking Fire by Anthony Ryan. This came from the Ace/Roc Stars team, and I’ve heard really good things about it. Thanks Ace!
Digital review books:
The Kraken Sea by E. Catherine Tobler. I snagged this review copy from Apex Books, and not only is the cover stunning, buts the story sounds amazing! It’s a novella, so it should be easy to squeeze in this month.
Certain Dark Things by Silvia Moreno-Garcia. This was a WoW pick, and I was so happy to be approved for this on NetGalley. Vampires! Latin American mythology! And a pretty pretty cover:-) Thank you Thomas Dunne Books!
Summerlong by Peter S. Beagle. A new book, after many years, from the author of The Last Unicorn. I’ve heard many good things about this book. Big thanks to Tachyon for the review copy:-)
And from Tor.com, three upcoming novellas that ALL sound pretty amazing:
Everything Belongs to the Future by Laurie Penny. Goodreads says “Everything Belongs to the Future is a bloody-minded tale of time, betrayal, desperation, and hope…” Yep, I’m in!
A Taste of Honey by Kai Ashante Wilson. OK, leopard on the cover. Points for that. Diversity and gay romance. Points for that too.
The Burning Light by Bradley P. Beaulieu and Rob Ziegler. I’m usually wary of books by two authors, but I’m dying to read something by Beaulieu, so this short novella seems like a good place to start.
Are you planning to read any of these books? What should I start with first??
