A weekly post where I can gush about my new books? Yes please. Granted I definitely won’t have something to post every week, I’ll just do it as required. I will be including everything from my purchases, to NetGalley, gifts and books from authors.
For more information head over to Tynga’s reviews.
I was going so well. I had only spent $2.99 on books up until this last fortnight, then it all went out the window. I’ve probably only spent $50 or so now, but I requested a few from NetGalley and managed to grab an arc from a favourite author. Maybe next month I can keep it under $10, which is my goal.
The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow – I have been seeing the love for this all over Twitter and when I saw it in store I decided it had to be mine. So pretty.
On a side note since joining Twitter I’ve become more and more disappointed by the mainstream bookstores near me. The fantasy/sci-fi section never seems to have what I want. Also, there is no fucking need to have three shelves of Sarah J. Maas. Fuck me, get a better variety and you might not have to shut your freaking stores.
Not a Diet Book by James Smith – I wasn’t going to get this, I was going to wait and get a physical copy eventually, but as I was watching one of his videos, I decided fuck it, and bought the book. I’m almost finished and while the writing style frustrates me sometimes and it can get repetitive, I think I am picking up new to me information and I don’t feel like he is just scamming me. In fact, I’ve logged my food into my fitness pal for several days in a row now, I’m aware of what I’m eating again and I’m not starving myself. I haven’t been hangry once.
Vultures by Luke Tarzian – I have had my eye on this one, it’s been getting fantastic reviews, so I figured it was time to add it to my to be read pile.
Binti by Nnedi Okorafor
Binti – Home by Nnedi Okorafor
Binti – The Night Masquerade by Nnedi Okorafor
– Amazon kills me every time with their “People who bought this also bought” lists. I get suckered in, but I did get all three so I can make time to sit down and enjoy them all.
The Glamourist by Luanne G Smith – which as I write this I realise its book two in a series. Damn I hate that. It might be ok to read on its own. It looks wonderful though.
Ballistic by Marko Kloos – I read the first book in this series, Aftershocks, last year and thought it had a lot going for it, but I was really frustrated with the ending. I thought it finished to abruptly, like he couldn’t come up with a way to finish it, so he just said fuck it, and stopped where he was. I’m very interested to see where Ballistic takes the characters.
Along The Razor’s Edge by Rob J. Hayes – Sorry to all the books I have on the go, but this is jumping to the front of the queue. Expected release date March 30th 2020.
