Another month has flown by! I just took my son to his college orientation and I’m feeling really old right now:-( My daughter will be a senior in high school and school starts in two weeks, believe it or not! So I feel like summer is over…
But the books keep on coming, at least, so that’s a good thing! The next few months are very “review book heavy,” as we’re getting into the fall season when new book releases seem to EXPLODE. I don’t have too many August books, so I’ll be catching up with a couple of July books that I couldn’t get to, and perhaps even get ahead and read a September book or two.
Here’s what’s on my plate this month (feel free to salivate along with me—I’m so excited for each and every one of these!):
Must Reads for August:
An Alchemy of Masques and Mirrors by Curtis Craddock. I feel like I’ve had this review copy FOREVER so I’m glad it’s finally August:-)
The Clockwork Dynasty by Daniel H. Wilson. I have a copy of Robopocalypse on my shelves, but I haven’t read it yet. I guess this will be my first Wilson!
The Court of Broken Knives by Anna Smith Spark. Well, first of all, our last names are almost the same (!!), and second, I’ve seen some very enthusiastic reviews of this book already. I’m anxious to dive in!
Black Light Express by Philip Reeve. I may be reading this already when this post goes up. I can’t tell you how long I’ve been waiting to read the follow up to Railhead!
The Stone Sky by N.K. Jemisin. The third and final book in Jemisin’s Broken Earth trilogy is finally here! I’m excited and nervous at the same time to finish this amazing story.
Catch up (July) & Get Ahead (September):
Entertaining Demons by Daniel I. Russell. I just had too many books to read in July, so this is a carry-over, as is An Oath of Dogs by Wendy N. Wagner. Two very different books that both sound so good.
Moving on to September (which is out of control, so I’d love to get a jump on it!), Godsgrave by Jay Kristoff is one of my most highly anticipated books of 2017! It comes out in early September so I’ll try to read it before then.
The Uploaded by Ferrett Steinmetz is one I’ve been looking forward to for months. I still haven’t read Steinmetz’s first trilogy so I’m going to start with his latest.
And here’s a recap of the books I reviewed in July! Click on the links to read my reviews if you missed them. Lots of good stuff here, folks. July was an awesome month:
