Welcome to my weekly post, where I sum-up what I’ve been up to in bookland the past week.
Happy Wednesday, Blog-friends! Here’s what my week has looked like (I have no idea why I did this collage backwards btw)…
Now: The Thousandth Floor ~ Katharine McGee
I’ve almost finished this. It’s been interesting but I don’t love it.
Then: The Hummingbird’s Cage ~ Tamara Dietrich
I really enjoyed this thriller/mystery/fanstasy-fusion novel. My review went up on Monday.
Probably Labyrinth Lost as it’s next on my ARCs list.
New on the Shelves
Siege and Storm ~ Leigh Bardudo
Darkness never dies.
Hunted across the True Sea, haunted by the lives she took on the Fold, Alina must try to make a life with Mal in an unfamiliar land. She finds starting new is not easy while keeping her identity as the Sun Summoner a secret. She can’t outrun her past or her destiny for long.
The Darkling has emerged from the Shadow Fold with a terrifying new power and a dangerous plan that will test the very boundaries of the natural world. With the help of a notorious privateer, Alina returns to the country she abandoned, determined to fight the forces gathering against Ravka. But as her power grows, Alina slips deeper into the Darkling’s game of forbidden magic, and farther away from Mal. Somehow, she will have to choose between her country, her power, and the love she always thought would guide her–or risk losing everything to the oncoming stormrown up.
Waiting on Wednesday
(Linking up with Breaking the Spine)
Saint Death ~ Marcus Sedgwick
I’m so excited about new Sedgwick!!!!
A potent, powerful and timely thriller about migrants, drug lords and gang warfare set on the US/Mexican border by prize-winning novelist, Marcus Sedgwick.
Anapra is one of the poorest neighbourhoods in the Mexican city of Juarez – twenty metres outside town lies a fence – and beyond it – America – the dangerous goal of many a migrant. Faustino is one such trying to escape from the gang he’s been working for. He’s dipped into a pile of dollars he was supposed to be hiding and now he’s on the run. He and his friend, Arturo, have only 36 hours to replace the missing money, or they’re as good as dead. Watching over them is Saint Death. Saint Death (or Santissima Muerte) – she of pure bone and charcoal-black eye, she of absolute loyalty and neutral morality, holy patron to rich and poor, to prostitute and narco-lord, criminal and police-chief. A folk saint, a rebel angel, a sinister guardian.
Expected Publication: October 6th 2016 by Orion Children’s Books
