I’m trying to back off on requests, but I did get some amazing books these past two weeks! Take a look:
Physical review copies
Four books I’m SUPER excited for! First off, Strange Practice by Vivian Shaw, with thanks to Orbit! This story sounds crazy, but in a totally good way. This is a July release so I’ll be reading it this month.
Big thanks to Tor for The Tiger’s Daughter, the first in a new series by debut author K. Arsenault Rivera. I am in love with the artwork on the cover, and I love the bookmark and postcard that came with the ARC!
The Genius Plague by David Walton is a book I’ve been looking forward to for a while. I really loved Supersymmetry by Walton, and I’m excited to read this story about an invading fungus that makes you smarter:-) Thank you Pyr!
Also from Tor, a book I have from NetGalley, but I’m thrilled to have a finished copy. The Queen of Swords by R.S. Belcher is the third in his Golgotha series. I’m a bit behind with my June books, but I’ll be reading this in July for sure.
I was invited to join the blog tour for The Golden Compass, and I didn’t even hesitate before I said YES. His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman is one of my very favorite series, and in anticipation of Pullman’s upcoming The Book of Dust, Random House is having a review blog tour to get readers excited. I’m glad to have this opportunity for a reread, something I normally wouldn’t have time for. Look for my review on July 17th!
A surprise from Tor Books, Perilous Prophecy by Leanna Renee Hieber is billed as a stand-alone prequel to Hieber’s Strangely Beautiful series. I’ve seen this series around but now I’m very curious to read it.
Finally, a surprise from Little, Brown Books for Young Readers, the third book in Kate Elliott’s Court of Fives series, Buried Heart. I haven’t yet started this, but these books have been on my TBR for quite a while. Hopefully at some point I can do a binge read!
Digital review copies:
I was super excited to see The Uploaded by Ferrett Steinmetz pop up on NetGalley. Thanks to Angry Robot for the download! And check out the fantastic Joey Hi-Fi cover:-D
I featured Devils & Thieves by Jennifer Rush in a top ten list of upcoming YA books I’m looking forward to, so I didn’t hesitate at all when it came to pushing the NetGalley request button. Thanks again to Little, Brown Books!
From the awesome folks at Tor.com, Sarah Gailey’s second novella in her series about an alternate history featuring hippos, Taste of Marrow, is one I’m very excited for!
And last but not least, Apex Books offered me a review copy of horror novel Entertaining Demons by Daniel I. Russell. I’ve heard really good things about this story that involves reality TV and demons. This is also a July book so look for a review later this month!
