Just a couple of digital galleys this week, and some ARCs I’m really looking forward to. Also, I FINALLY got a Kickstarter reward for a book that I backed maybe two-three years ago? I’m not kidding, it took FOREVER to get. Now granted, it’s a gorgeous book so I guess it was worth the wait? Here’s what I added to my shelves this week:
Sooo excited to get An Unkindness of Magicians in the mail the other day! It’s one of my most anticipated releases this year, after loving Howard’s Roses and Rot last year. Huge thanks to Saga Press!
And two awesome surprises from publishers whose books I reviewed recently: finished copies of The Truants by Lee Markham and The Strange Case of the Alchemist’s Daughter by Theodora Goss. Thanks to Overlook Press and Saga Press! And vampire lovers take note: I’ll be giving away THREE copies of The Truants very soon, so stay tuned!
Stepping away from my normal SFF reads, I’m looking forward to this domestic thriller from Graydon House, Best Day Ever by Kaira Rouda.
And big thanks to Pyr for this finished copy of A Kiss Before Doomsday by Laurence MacNaughton. I’m more determined than ever to start this series, I hear it’s wonderful!
And a Kickstarter that I backed YEARS ago finally showed up: Genius Loci, published by Ragnarok. I had tried several times to contact the publisher to no avail, so I basically figured I’d lost the $30 I pledged. (At some point you just have to let it go.) But it showed up last week! And I have to admit, it’s pretty spectacular—beautifully designed on heavy paper, and it’s full of cool looking stories.
Digital review copies:
SUPER excited to be approved for Andy Weir’s Artemis. Since The Martian became one of my favorite books of 2014, I’ve been dying to read Weir’s next book. Big thanks to Crown for the review copy. And if any publisher-savvy folks can explain why two different publishers are publishing hardcover editions of this book at the same time, but with slightly different covers, I’m dying to know. I also see that Del Rey is mentioned as a publisher on Goodreads. I must know, somebody please find out for me. (And I feel really lazy right now, lol)
The Sky is Yours by Chandler Klang Smith. I adore this cover, and if you click the link and read the description on Goodreads, I know you’re going to want to read this too. It sounds just crazy enough for my tastes! Big thanks to Hogarth for the review copy.
