Hello June! Where the hell did you come from? Did you know that of all the months on my schedule you are the one that had every book I wanted to read come at once? It is true! So… thanks for that.
I made almost no requests yet my reading list has once again grown dramatically. Here is what has made it my way this month.
Physical Review Copies
The Bones of the Earth by Rachel Dunne – Hey, anyone know this series? This is the second book, should I chase down the first? Or better yet, do I need to read the first? I could use some help figuring out this surprise arrival.
Tyrant’s Throne by Sebastien de Castell – This is a series I am on firmer ground with. I enjoyed the first two books quite a bit so of course I will move right in…to…this… forth?…book. Damn, nope, behind. No worries, I do have the third book around so I just have to catch up.
Digital Review Copies
The Waking Land by Callie Bates – I got sucked in by the cover. I have no idea what this book is about. I may wait for a few reviews to hit first.
An Oath of Dogs by Wendy N Wagner – Corperatepunk by the looks of it. I have read a few great books that dealt with fantasy or sci-fi companies with too much power. It usually works out in my favor. I have high hopes.
The Ghost Line – Another Tor.com novella and these have typically worked out in my favor. I actually had quite a few show up recently but this one immediately stuck out and I want to dig through the rest of the catalog.
The Cityborn by Edward Willett – I am having second thoughts about this one. It is another one I jumped at because of the cover. But rereading the blurb I am thinking it may be a dystopia and that usually doesn’t go well for me. Another one I will wait on reviews for.

I have read it of course, but never in Spanish. I recently completed the Spanish tree of Duolingo and it has prepped me pretty well for reading. I am about a quarter in. Yes, this will be my first novel read in another language; I am very excited.
What do y’all think? Good haul? What are you looking forward to reading? What should I read from it first? What should be my next step in learning Spanish? These are all questions I want answered.
