I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of This Mortal Coil by Emily Suvada who happens to be an Australian author!!! This is her debut novel and it’s a sci-fi / kind of apocalyptic novel about genes manipulation and a really cool virus. But we’ll get into that a bit more in a second.
I received an ARC of Dare Mighty Things by Heather Kaczynski from Edelweiss and this in no way impacts my thoughts. This book comes out tomorrow!!
I didn’t know whether it would be better to post my review closer to the release date or not so let me know what you guys would prefer.
Today I’m going to be doing mini reviews some books that are being released around this time of year. Firstly I will be reviewing Black and White by Nick Wilford which I was sent by the author for review, and secondly I will be reviewing The Shadow Cipher by Laura Ruby (identifiable as YORK which is the series name).
This is my second mini review post in the past few weeks and there will probably be one more as I try to catch back up to having reviewed all the books I’ve read.
This post will cover the second two books in the Starbound trilogy by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner along with the conclusion to the Endgame trilogy by James Frey.
Beware that there will be spoilers in these segments for the previous books in the series.
I know this was the top ten tuesday topic last week, but since they’re on hiatus right now I am going to do it this week instead. Note that these might not be books released this year, only ones I have read this year. And I haven’t read that many books so there hasn’t been much to choose from. Also I am cheating quite a bit by combining series.
The top ten tuesday topic for this week is anticipated reads for the second half of 2017. The first half isn’t technically over yet, but there are so many good books I aim to get to in the rest of this year. I am going to split this list between books being released this year, and books I am just really excited to read. This list should give you a good overview of which books I aim to read before the year is over. There are so many books, it has been difficult to narrow it down to the ones I am most excited for, so there are probably a lot more books that deserve to be on this list.
There are a lot of things that people can say when describing a book that will make me HAVE to read that book. People who know me are able to use these buzz words to get me to read pretty much any book. It’s kind of a problem because sometimes that means I go into the book with vastly different expectations from what the book is actually about. It can also mean that I like the book far more than other people do because it has a theme or trope that I like. This is the top ten tuesday topic of the week (from The Broke and The Bookish) so read on to learn more what you can say to get me to read a book.
