Lots of digital review copies this week! And just a couple of physical books. So far I’m AHEAD with review books, since I’m on my SIXTH January book so far, which isn’t bad considering it’s only January 7th! (Obviously, I started reading January books in December.) I hope to continue this trend by reading at least two books the month before they come out. It really takes some of the stress off blogging.
Here are my newest books:
I’m SO EXCITED to have won a giveaway over at Bookwraiths! This awesome giveaway included signed copies of both Beyond Redemption and The Mirror’s Truth by Michael R. Fletcher, a series I’ve been wanting to read since Beyond Redemption received so many great reviews last year. Thank you to both Michael R. Fletcher and Wendell over at Bookwraiths!
The Last Harvest by Kim Liggett, with thanks to Tor Books. I’ve already read this, and my review will be up Monday. This book—it’s horror, but it went beyond what I expected from a teen horror novel. I really enjoyed it, although I’m still having nightmares, thanks Kim!
Yes, I had to. I rushed out to buy a copy of The Princess Diarist right after the terrible tragedy of Carrie Fisher’s death. I loved Wishful Drinking, and I’m so sad this amazingly funny woman won’t be writing any more books:-(
Black Light Express by Philip Reeve. Yes, I had to! The minute I learned that the sequel to Railhead had already been published in the UK, I hopped over to the Book Depository and bought a copy. I’ll be squeezing this into my reading schedule in the next couple of months. I’m so excited!
Digital review books:
Let’s start with two HIGHLY anticipated 2017 reads! City of Miracles by Robert Jackson Bennett is the finale to his Divine Cities trilogy. I’m glad to see that Sigrud will be front and center in this story.
Brimstone by Cherie Priest will be my second Priest book, after loving The Family Plot. So happy to have been approved for this! Thank you Ace:-D
Ararat by Christopher Golden. Take a look at this cover. This is what the California mountains are going to look like in about a week, after a huge storm hits! Thanks to St. Martin’s Press for the review copy.
Empress of a Thousand Skies by Rhoda Belleza. I was excited to find this on Edelweiss, after I had listed it in my Top Ten Debuts of 2017. Thanks to Razorbill:-)
The Sandcastle Empire by Kayla Olson. This was another book from my debuts list. Thanks to HarperTeen!
Dear Sweet Filthy World by Caitlin R. Kiernan. I’ve had my eye on this short story collection for a while, so I was very happy to get an approval on NetGalley from Subterranean.
Pseudotooth by Verity Holloway. Thanks to the fine folks at Unsung Stories for pitching this to me. I’m loving the cover SO much, and the story sounds just odd enough for my tastes:-)
The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee. I loved Lee’s first book, and I was thrilled to see her new one is set in 18th century Europe and has “intrigue and romance.” Thank you Katherine Tegen Books:-)
