A weekly post where I list some of the awesome books I bought, received in the mail, or checked out of the library. Since I didn’t have time to post last week, this is an even more action-packed edition than usual. Particularly in terms of how much I received…
In the Mail:
An ARC of The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller (March 6, 2011) from Ecco/HarperCollins. Holy cow. From just flipping through it, I know without a shadow of a doubt that this book is going to be perfect for me and one that I will cry over and gush about in the not too distant future.
Review copies of Firestorm by Taylor Anderson (October 4) and In Blood We Trust by Christine Cody (September 27) from Penguin. I’m pretty sure I won’t be reading In Blood We Trust, but Firestorm looks awfully neat. I just have to figure out if it something I can read without picking up the rest of the series or not.
Review copies of Flawless by Carrie Lofty (September 27) and Alterant by Sherrilyn Kenyon and Diana Love (September 27) from Pocket. I have to admit. I’m definitely intrigued by both books particularly Flawless since it is a Historical Romance set in South Africa and one that deals with the diamond trade.
Ghouls of the Miskatonic by Graham McNeill – The first in The Dark Waters Trilogy and based on the Arkham Horror board games from Fantasy Flight Games. I tried my hand at the game just last weekend and I cannot wait to start on the books!
The Unwanteds by Lisa McMann – And I got it signed at the YA Conference I attended on Saturday.
