I guarantee that your TBR pile will grow when you see all the cool books everyone gets. You will discover lots of wonderful blogs and lots of books that you won't be able to live without.
This is what found its way to my mailbox this week.
I have been fascinated with the descriptions that I have read about Wereling by Steve Feasey. When I found out that there were already 3 books in the series in the UK I made my way to the Book Depository and bought them. They were a bit delayed in reaching me because of the volcanic eruption but arrived this week. I really like the nice shiny covers and am eager to start this series. Have I mentioned how much I like books about werewolves?
These three are also books that I have heard so many good things about on the blogs I read. I liked Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side. So Jekel Loves Hyde by Beth Fantaskey got on my buy list as soon as I heard about it.
I hadn't heard of Angel Star by Jennifer Murgia until recently. Everything I have heard makes it sound very good.
Shade by Jeri Smith-Ready is the first YA by an author whose urban fantasy I already read and enjoy. I am also looking forward to this one. It was fit into the YA Debut Author Challenge.
The Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan is the start of a new series. I like both The Lightning Thief and the 39 Clues books. This one should attract the same middle grade readers as the other two series.
Alex Van Helsing: Vampire Rising by Jason Henderson also sounded good and should be good for that same audience.
I have heard good things about Silver Phoenix by Cindy Pon. I had a chance to buy a hardcover from Amazon Marketplace and decided to try this fantasy.
I am a Holly Black fan. So White Cat appealed to me. I have been avoiding the reviews because I want to read the book without having any preconceptions. I like the cover. I hope the contents lives up to it.
I also added a couple of titles to my Kindle.
Both books by Leanna Renee Hieber have intriguing titles. The Darkly Luminous Fight for Persephone Parker and The Strangely Beautiful Tale of Miss Percy Parker both sound good. The descriptions at Amazon bring to mind Soulless by Gail Carriger which is one of my recent favorite adult paranormal books.
I also signed up for NetGalley this week and chose my first three books. I chose The Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa, The Mermaid's Mirror by L. K. Madigan, and Tyger Tyger by Kersten Hamilton.
I was hoping to read these on my Kindle but I don't like how the PDFs look. So I will be reading them on my laptop using Adobe Digital Edtions. I am really looking forward to The Iron Daughter because I liked The Iron King.
None of these books are being published until later this summer or into the Fall. When do you like to see reviews for books that are that far away from you local bookstore?
