Wow. April already. And so many new books to read! Lets look at the books that will continue to push me hopelessly behind on the old reading list.
Physical Review Copies
Tyrant’s Throne by Sabastien de Castell – Don’t be jealous, this is not the full book. This was a weird one. It contains a letter from the author, a summery of the series, and the first chapter. Apparently ARCs were not published due to scheduling issues but I will be honest, not sure what the point was. Plus I am one book behind on the series (though I do OWN book 3 so that is fixable).
The Star Thief by Lindsey Becker – Again, I forget how random book mail can be so…random? I review very little YA, and even less ‘Middle Grade’ or what ever it is being called. Pretty cover though, it goes on the maybe pile because it is short enough to probably get a chance.
The Prey of Gods by Nicky Drayden – LOOK AT THAT COVER!! The only one I requested. It doesn’t come out until June but it looks completely awesome and I won’t be able to wait that long to start reading it.
American Gods by Neil Gaiman – Another random book mail. Of a book I have read at least five times. At one time we had two copies of this in the house because it was something both my wife and I owned when we moved in together. Are they telling me I need to do a reread? Again?
Digital Review Copies
I was good this month, didn’t press that request button too often.
The Ship by Antonia Honeywell – I thought it looked interesting with a Noah’s Ark of humanities survivors. But I admit early reviews are scaring me a bit.
Pawn by Timothy Zahn – Everyone had a favorite in high school and Zahn was easily mine. I started with his Star Wars books but read everything else i could. Not all of it has stood up great but they were always fun. So I had to grab this one for nostalgia sake.
The Empire’s Ghost by Isabelle Steiger – A true epic fantasy debut. It almost seems rare anymore with all the (awesome) genre bending releases. It looks interesting so on the list it goes.
Brother’s Ruin by Emma Newman – Another Tor.com novella. Who cares what it is about? These are so short I read them in a couple of sittings.
Digital Copy Bought
The Craft Sequence by Max Gladstone – It was a super good deal and I love this series. It is nice to have it all in one place.
Well, what do you think? What would you read first? What should I read first? How many copies of American Gods does the average fantasy blogger really need?
