Here are my picks for what you must read in February 2017: 1. Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman - February 7th 2017 by Bloomsbury Publishing Goodreads ||...
No really. They do! But in a world where women are encouraged to use their initials so they can hide their gender when publishing science fiction, you might...
I devoured Windwitch. It was almost impossible to put down from the very first page!! This, folks, is how you craft a sequel. While Truthwitch focussed on...
I feel oddly duped by Marked. I was expecting a paranormal-urban fantasy with some detective/crime vibes, and what I got was a paranormal romance that reminded me of the Merry Gentry books by Laurell K. Hamilton.
I found a lot to like in Glass Sword. It wasn’t perfect, but it was a stronger sequel by far. It rose above the admittedly low bar that Red Queen had set. A good sequel that builds and expands on the foundations of its predecessor.
A list of books to look out for in February 2016!
Firstly, isn’t that cover gorgeous? It’s what drew me to Those Above in the first place, that beautiful cover with a giant sword that screamed Read Me. And I was further enthralled when I read the synopsis. A human uprising against the Gods? Sign me up. I really enjoyed Those Above. It has moments of brilliance where it transcends expectations, and at all other times is an entertaining and glorious read. I can’t wait to get my hands on the sequel!
Happily Ever After is a collection of all the short stories set in the world of The Selection, and it’s going to be popular with the fans.
I’m a sucker for reincarnation stories, so I’ve been looking forward to reading this since I heard about it. I loved The Next Together – the concept is amazing and the execution is brilliant! I loved every moment of my time with all the different versions of Katherine and Matthew. The Next Together transcends the traditional boundaries of genre to give readers a unique story.
Glass Sword comes out in February and I think you’ll love it.
The Cracks in the Kingdom is an exquisitely crafted blend of contemporary and fantasy fiction that will delight fans of both genres. A wonderfully compelling story, it will have readers desperate for the next instalment.
Iluminae has to be one of the cleverest books I’ve read in a long time. It’s a brilliantly crafted story that has everything – a terrifying AI, an interstellar war, explosions in space, romance, and dark humour. With its gorgeous artwork and unusual presentation, Iluminae is a feast for the eyes. It’s a vivid, emotional, exciting read that will hook most readers.
I loved A Thousand Pieces of You. I ranted and raved about it and practically forced it into the hands of every unsuspecting friend and acquaintance I had. And I’m happy to report that I loved the sequel just as much. Claudia Gray knows how to write a book!
