This week I have a little of everything: some review books, an awesome purchase, and a surprise contest win! Check it out:
Books for review:
Some very cool books arrived during the past few weeks! From Tor Books, Dark Shadows: Heiress of Collinwood by Lara Parker. I used to watch the original Dark Shadows way back in the day, and I still have a soft spot in my heart. I’m looking forward to this sequel of sorts, a story that takes place after the show ended. Thank you Tor!
Congress of Secrets by Stephanie Burgis. A finished paperback courtesy of Pyr, I am looking forward to reading and reviewing this soon. Big thanks to Pyr!
Department Zero by Paul Crilley. I was thrilled to get this review copy, also from Pyr, for this Lovecraft-inspired story that looks soo good. Look for my review in early January! Thank you Pyr:-)
Zodiac by Sam Wilson. Another awesome book from Pegasus Books, I’m pretty darn excited to dive into this. Not only is the cover stunning, but the story sounds great: a thriller with a science fiction twist. Big thanks to Pegasus!
Huge thanks to Danya at Fine Print and Ace Books for the amazing Erin Lindsey trilogy! I’ve been dying to start reading it, and now I have no excuses:-) I was lucky enough to win all three books: The Bloodforged, The Bloodsworn and The Bloodbound. (oops I think I’ve got the photo out of order!)
And of course, I had to purchase a copy of Gemina by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman. I have an ARC, but this finished version has artwork/drawings by Marie Lu! Super excited to read this, I hear it’s pretty amazing:-)
Digital review copies:
Heartstone by Elle Katharine White. Such a gorgeous cover! This is a fantasy retelling of Pride and Prejudice, and who among us can resist that?? Not me, certainly:-) Thank you Harper Voyager:-D
Haven, Kansas by Alethea Kontis. The author contacted me and asked if I’d like to read her latest, a “…literary slasher for the twenty-first century!” Wow. Again I ask, who can resist that? Especially when the name Joss Whedon is thrown about. Kontis has been traditionally published before, and it looks like she’s trying out the self-publishing route this time. I can’t wait! Thank you Alethea!
Idle Ingredients by Matt Wallace. This is the fourth novella in Wallace’s Sin du Jour series, one I am happy to say I am all caught up with. I love this eye-catching cover, too. Thanks to Tor.com for the review copy!
All Our Wrong Todays by Elan Mastai. I received a NetGalley invitation to review this, which I eagerly accepted. This is a crazy sounding time travel story that I believe is getting lots of great reviews already.
Let me know if you’re planning on reading any of these books as well:-D
