Tynga of Tynga's Reviews is starting a new meme to spotlight the books we receive each week. She explains at her site and posts a Linky each week.
I guarantee that your TBR pile will grow when you see all the wonderful books everyone gets. You will also discover lots of great blogs and lots of books that you won't be able to live without.
For someone who is trying not to buy books and trying to reduce the TBR mountain, I had a terrible week. But for bookaholics, I had a great week. Here are the books I got this week:
I bought Blazing the Trail by Deborah Cooke this week because it is the third book in her Dragon Diaries series. I just read the second one and really liked it. I had to know what happens next. I don't recall seeing much about this series which is something of a shame. I think the books are well-written and dragons might be the most underutilized paranormal creature out there.
I also downloaded a free copy of the collection called The Fierce Reads Anthology. This one is put out by Tor and contains short stories by all the authors on the Fierce Reads tour. I have real all the novels so it will be good to get another glimpse into the worlds the authors created.
Finally, I got my copy of The Golden Lily by Richelle Mead. I just read Bloodlines and can't wait to read this one.
The rest of my haul this week are books for review.
I got Eve and Adam by Katherine Applegate and Michael Grant along with a glowing letter from Macmillan. The letter was way over the top but I remember choosing this one because it was science fiction. I don't think there is enough good science fiction being published now and have high hopes for this one. This one will be released on October 2.
I got Seraphina by Rachel Hartman from NetGalley. I chose this one for its dragons. Remember, I don't think dragons are featured enough in YA literature these days. Also I like fantasies. This one will be published on July 10.
I also got The Blood Keeper by Tessa Gratton from NetGalley. I am a fan of her work. I really liked the moody atmosphere of Blood Magic. This one will be released on August 28.
Again from NetGalley, I got The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken. This one sounds like a paranormal dystopian and has an intriguing plot summary. It won't be released until Dec. 18 which seems such a long time from now.
I also got Dearly, Beloved by Lia Habel from NetGalley. I don't usually like zombie stories but I enjoyed Dearly, Departed a lot and can't wait to read this one. This one will be released on Sept. 25.
Finally, I got a lovely purple mailing envelope from Macmillan that contained an ARC of Crewel by Gennifer Albin. This one is being highly touted by Macmillan. I think it sounds like a very interesting fantasy novel. It will be released on Oct. 16.
Those were the books I added to my TBR mountain this week. What did you add to yours?
