Hoarders is my version of The Story Siren’s In My Mailbox.
Oh hai there.
Manageable pile this week. I got one unsolicited review copy from Simon and Schuster – an adult fiction to which I’ve not heard of. It sounds fantastic, anyway and I’m excited to read it. I’ve finally found the motivation and drive to read my review pile but since I’ve recently opened the blog to accept review copies, I’ve been getting requests faster than I can decline or read. Sigh. As always, leave me a link so I can stalk your book haul, will ya? 🙂
The Madman’s Daughter by Megan Shepherd This has been receiving some awesome reviews so I’m excited to read it. Yes, I do listen to trend no matter how many times I’ve been burned by overly-hyped books before. I’ve not read The Island of Dr. Moreau nor have I seen the film so this is my first taste.
Garden of Stones by Sophie Littlefield I am familiar with Sophie’s works as I’ve read her YA series, Banished. I also read her Adult zombie series, Aftertime. This book is hella different though. It’s set after the Pearl Harbor disaster. It’s about these Japanese-American mother and daughter. I’ve always been curious about what happened to the Japanese people living in America after that happened so I’m plenty excited about this one as well.
The Firebird by Susanna Kearsley This is a companion book to The Winter Sea, a book that I’ve not read yet. I was perusing my virtual bookshelf on Goodreads and it says that I own it. The problem is, I don’t know where it is. Damn.
The Tragedy Paper by Elizabeth Laban This book has been getting some mixed reviews but I’m willing to give it a go. I’m curious about the Albino boy and how he could possibly think he could blend into the background. Kinda impossible to do when you’re walking the halls in all your stark-white glory. I see heartbreak, angst and tears in the horizon. Yay.
Cinders and Sapphires by Leila Rasheed I know absolutely nothing about this book nor have I seen an episode of Downtown Abbey. Reviews aren’t that favourable as well. But most of the reviews I’ve read on Goodreads are based from the sample sneak peek from Net Galley so I figure I’d give it a chance and read the full book. 🙂
The Archived by Victoria Schwab I hope this book live up to the hype. That is all.
Nobody by Jennifer Lynn Barnes So-so reviews so far but I really like Jennifer’s writing. We’ll see…
I showed you mine; show me yours?
