Oh, how I love book mail, when those lovely, bright shiny covered books arrive and I smell them for the first time, ah! Come on, is there anything better? And the thrill of breaking a new spine of a new story, and even better, a new author. Well, I have quite a few new authors coming up, thanks to Jo over at the Blue Mood Cafe for some of these suggestions.
In this week’s haul:
- TWO GIRLS DOWN by Louisa Luna (Crime)
- AMBUSH by Barbara Nickless (Crime)
- A MERCIFUL PROMISE by Kendra Elliot (Crime)
- WE LIE WITH DEATH by Devin Madson (Fantasy)
- HALL OF SMOKE by H.M. Long (Myth/Fantasy)
- COLONYSIDE by Michael Mammay (SF)
And, of course, I just finished reading DEAD LAND by Sara Paretsky, which arrived way ahead of all the other books I ordered at the same time. Not that I’m complaining, but sometimes I wonder how my online book retailer makes any money trying to keep up with the Big A by offering free shipping and then, sending my order one book at a time.
I cannot finish without saying a really BIG thank you to Hannah Long for the signed copy of HALL OF SMOKE, a Norse-inspired fantasy that sounds like a fantastic and wild ride. And, of course, I can’t wait to read all of these.
