Book Reviews for Just About Every Kind of Book

In My Mailbox (14)

From Orbit:
I love epic fantasy, and don't read enough of it. When I read a seriously laudatory review of this one, I knew I had to try it, especially since it's written by a sassy female author.

The Killing Moon - N. K. Jemisin

From Grand Central:
I got a surprise, unsolicited review copy in the mail. Actually, I don't think I've ever worked with Grand Central before, so I was totally blown away; I thought I knew what was in the box and I was wrong. lol. Anyway, the book looks really awesome in person, although the cover image on the computer does not capture it. Though I haven't read any of this series, I'm going to give it a go; I've already ordered the first book from the library. Given how long they are and that this is book five, it might take me a while to get here. If I don't like it, I'll share with a reader! Thanks to Grand Central for the surprise gift! Much appreciated!

 Born of Silence - Sherrilyn Kenyon

Won in Giveaways:
Thanks to A Word's Worth for this copy of Awkward, which came with assorted swag. I hadn't heard of the book before, but it sounds good, and, really, could there be a more apt word to describe the YA years? I think not. Thanks, Rebecca, and your card was so sweet! Anna Dressed in Blood came from a Tor giveaway. I've heard so many good things about this. Yay! Will be reading soon.

Awkward - Marni Bates / Anna Dressed in Blood - Kendare Blake

I was also incredibly lucky to win an ARC of Palace of Stone, the sequel to Princess Academy, which I freaking loved. The degree to which I am excited about this really cannot be overstated! Thanks to Shannon Hale for the giveaway and to Bloomsbury for being awesome!

 Palace of Stone - Shannon Hale

From Random House via Random Buzzers:
Okay, I actually just finished reading this one, but I purchased it with my buzz bucks and now have my very own copy. These books will probably get reread, because they're so fun and comforting. There's someone for everyone, right? Right?

The Queen's Lady - Eve Edwards

From NetGalley:
As ever, I troll NetGalley constantly looking for awesome things. Really excited to have found The Glimpse hidden back in the 400s. Also found Glitch! Squee! Thanks to Oni Press, Dark Horse, David C. Cook, Faber and Faber, and St. Martin's Griffin for these awesome titles!

 Courtney Crumrin and the Coven of Mystics - Ted Naifeh / Orchid, Volume 1 - Tom Morello / Freaks of the Heartland - Steve Niles

Glamorous Illusions - Lisa T. Bergren / Glitch - Heather Anastasiu / The Glimpse - Claire Merle

I've heard GREAT things about Anna! I hope to read it soonish, I actually almost bought the book yesterday, but then realized I don't have money. Ooops.

And I didn't know Glitch is on NG! Requested it, I hope to get it too. It looks awesome!

Happy reading~~

What a stash of books! The cover of Glamorous Illusions sucked me in. I want to know what that's about. Isn't it great when you get a surprise book? That's how I stared reading Kenyon's Chronicle of Nick series. They recently sent me book 3 in the series. Happy reading, my friend :-)
