So hello peoples. I am back. Still not fully because I have one more final left but I have *looks at date* yeah, seven more days before I have to go through that hell so…I shall blog! I thought it would be interesting to share some of the recent additions to my ever-growing to read list (745 and counting, eep!).
Silence – Michelle Sagara
Two things you need to know about M. Sagara: 1) She’s Canadian and 2) She’s an awesome writer. I love her Chronicles of Elantra series which has managed, so far, to achieve the perfect balance between romance and fantasy (some, maybe many, will disagree with me about the romance, it’s okay, I can live with it). Her world building is amazing and if this book is anything at all like The Chronicles of Elantra, I’m going to be a happy reader.
Burnt Snow – Van Badham
This one sounds amazing and because it’s Australian, I’m inclined to believe the raving reviews. However, because it’s Australian, it’s going to take me a while to get my hands on it but I will have it sooner or later. Hurhur. (Do I sound vaguely creepy to you cuz I do to me. :\)
The Sweetest Spell – Suzanne Selfors
I feel vaguely embarrassed by the fact that I have this book on my list simply because it’s so out there. So, it is being marketed as the retelling of The Ugly Duckling but I don’t know… the synopsis does not seem at all similar. Anyway, apparently the protagonist can turn milk into chocolate milk and that makes her really desirable… yeahhh….out there. We’ll see. It might be worth it for the potential lulz.
New Girl – Paige Harbison
So I hear tell that this is the retelling of Du Maurier’s Rebecca of which I am a big fan. So, I was in and lucky enough to grab a copy from Net Galley. I’ll let you know how it is.
A College of Magics – Caroline Stevermer
High fantasy for the win! Why didn’t I see this before? I can’t wait to get my hands on this.
