Hi, everyone! Let’s take a little look at the goodies I got this past week, shall we?
Shawn McGuire’s The Shadow Thieves of Rouen is a fantasy novella written by a local author whose editor I work with, so I’ve got plenty of incentive to read this one. I enjoy supporting local authors where and when I can, after all, especially small-press or self-published ones when I really believe in their work. I’m looking forward to giving this one a try; expect the review for this first novella some time in November.
Julianna Baggott’s Pure seems like an interesting work of dystopian and post-apocalyptic fiction, and readers of this blog know that I’m a general fan of both of those genres. I’m really looking forward to having the time to crack this book open (metaphorically, since it’s an e-copy that I have). I wouldn’t be surprised to see a good deal of hype surrounding this book eventually, if it turns out to be as good as it sounds.
Cathy’s Brett’s Scarlett Dedd is more mid-grade/YA than I usually go for, but the premise of this book sounded too fun and interesting to pass up. It’s a perfect fit for November’s YA month here, too, so expect a review of this one coming very soon.
And true to form, Rachel Hartman’s Seraphina is the book that didn’t have cover art loaded on Amazon yet this week. Really, I find one of these every week. It’s almost starting to become a game, trying to figure out which one of the batch will it be!
Just a note to everyone, through the month of November I’m also going to try to do my very best to read and review more books than I receive. That way I might make a little more of an inroad into my TBR pile. I can’t promise anything (there are so many good and interesting books in the world), but I will at least try. So there may even be weeks where I get nothing, and there’ll be no IMM post! Shocking!
