It’s April! In Southern California, the weather often skips right over spring and goes directly to summer, but these days it sure feels like spring here, it’s been beautiful. I hope that wherever you live, spring is starting to show itself!
March wasn’t the best reading month I’ve ever had:-/ Not sure what happened, but I completely failed at reading most of my March review books. Hopefully April will be better! Here’s what I hope to read and review this month:
Waking Gods by Sylvain Neuvel. It seems like I’ve been waiting for this book forever! Now the release date is upon us, I’ll be reading this very soon.
Ararat by Christopher Golden. Very excited to dive into this paranormal/horror story.
Brimstone by Cherie Priest. I’ve seen some less than enthusiastic reviews of this book, but I’m still planning on reading it. I trust Priest to deliver an interesting story!
Borne by Jeff VanderMeer. I was just approved for this book on NetGalley, just in time to slide onto my April review pile!
The House of Binding Thorns by Aliette de Bodard. Yes, I do need to read book one first! Pressure!
The Ship by Antonia Honeywell. This just arrived from Orbit, and I’m looking forward to this post apocalyptic tale that takes place at sea.
March titles I didn’t get to:
Chalk by Paul Cornell. Back on the pile, I’ll most likely have started this by the time this post goes live.
Dear Sweet Filthy World by Caitlín R. Kiernan. Really looking forward to this short story collection.
From Ice to Ashes by Rhett C. Bruno. Another March book that I just didn’t manage to get to, but will be reviewing this month.
Stop by on the 15th for my monthly Book Review Giveaway! And I’ll be helping Apex Magazine with their annual magazine drive sometime this month (date to be determined), so keep an eye out for that. I’ll have an interview with some of the marvelous Apex folks, and lots of information on how you can support and subscribe to the fantastic Apex Magazine.
I just found out I’m going to be hosting a giveaway for Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor, which I’m very excited about! Check back on April 17th for more details.
And as usually happens, surprises pop up during the month that I’m not expecting, so stop by frequently so you don’t miss anything.
