I hope everyone is having a great summer so far! We are-just enjoying the insane heat of Texas and really trying to avoid it as much as possible. I don’t know about you but I’m swimming (haha) in summer releases. So far there’ve been some incredible ones.
One bit of sadness this week was the news that Angry Robot is shutting down their YA imprint, Strange Chemistry. I took this time to look at their catalog and pick out my wish-list and purchase some books. I’m not clear on what this news means for these authors or their books but I want to make sure I have some for my collection. I’ve also got an international giveaway going right now-winner chooses any SC book they want. You can check it out here.
Now to this week’s books. Stacking the Shelves hosted by Tynga’s Reviews is a weekly meme where you show what books you’ve purchased, gotten from the library, received from giveaway, as gifts or for review.
For Review (via publisher):
Mortal Heart by Robin LaFevers, The Vanishing Season by Jodi Lynne Anderson and World of Trouble by Ben H. Winters
I have read The Vanishing Season and again (after Tiger Lily) was impressed with Anderson’s writing style and how incredibly vivid and beautiful it is. I’ll go into detail about this and the things I wasn’t as keen on in my review. World of Trouble is the third in Winter’s series. I reviewed the firs- The Last Policeman last week. And…MORTAL HEART. I nearly passed out opening that package. I can not believe that the physical arc is in my house. I’ve been hugging it and am so grateful.
For Review (via NetGalley):
I don’t know much about this one but I love that cover and summary.
