Meet me in the future: Stories by Kameron Hurley

Meet me in the future by Kameron HurleyElephants and Corpses was my very first introduction to Kameron Hurley’s writing several years back when Tor had it on their site. It was a first class story that made a lasting impression, yet its only in the last year that I have started buying and reading more of Hurley’s work. I sit back now and want to kick myself. So of course when I saw this on NetGalley I hit request as fast as I could and then put everything else on the backburner as soon as I was approved, even though I had a couple of months before it’s release day.

Quick Fire Book Tag

I saw this tag over on Don Jimmy Reviews page and decided to give it a go

1. E-Book or physical book?
At the moment I’m on an e-book binge, which has been inspired by the SPFBO5. I’m smashing through the self published books I picked up last year.

2. Paperback or hardback?
Paperback. Unless of course it’s a special edition, but I don’t often read those. I just like them because they are pretty and with certain authors I’m obsessive and must have everything. Continue reading “Quick Fire Book Tag”

Pack Bound by Leisl Leighton

Aaah, paranormal romance. This genre is my fairy floss. I love it and tend to overindulge and then avoid it for a while, before coming back and repeating the cycle.

Pack Bound

Skye has magic, she has grown up with it but she fears it. She has been told she has great power but because she can’t control it, she is dangerous and must be bound. She hurt her twin River as a child and has never forgiven herself. An adult now, she lives with her friends, runs a successful childcare centre and visits her housebound brother as often as possible. Continue reading “Pack Bound by Leisl Leighton”

The Heart Of Stone by Ben Galley

#UltimateBlogTour Book Review

 

Heart of Stone Banner 2

Heart of Stone by Ben GalleySynopsis – Merciless. Murderer. Monster. He has been called many names in his time.
Built for war and nothing else, he has witnessed every shade of violence humans know, and he has wrought his own masterpieces with their colours. He cared once, perhaps, but far too long ago. He is bound to his task, dead to the chaos he wreaks for his masters.
Now, he has a new master to serve and a new war to endure. In the far reaches of the Realm, Hartlund tears itself in two over coin and crown. This time he will fight for a boy king and a general bent on victory.
Beneath it all he longs for change. For something to surprise him. For an end to this cycle of warfare.
Every fighter has a last fight. Even one made of stone. Continue reading “The Heart Of Stone by Ben Galley”

And as a bonus I want to add Lauren James’s The Starlight Watchmaker, out on July 15th a middle-grade sci-fi. She writes fantastic ya sci-fi  and if you are looking for something for your kids (or yourself) to read, either of these would be a great choice.

In the interest of honesty, I will say I have already read Meet me in the Future: Stories by Kameron Hurley and it was a 5 star read. You should all go and pre-order your own copy now. And I haven’t read all the Abercrombie books, I just can’t wait to see everyone get excited for it. I know their will be some squealing over it.
