Book Haul for November (and a wrap up of sorts)

For Review

  1. Love Letters to the Dead – Ava Dellaira
    I’ve been interested in this one ever since it was pitched to us at the Raincoast Winter Preview event and so I requested it. And I got it! Yay. I like epistolary novels quite a bit and you will be seeing a review of this somewhere closer to the release date.
  2. Copperhead – Tina Connolly
    I was sent this by Leah from Tor (thank you!). You’ve already seen a review of it here.
  3. The Nightmare Dilemma – Mindi Arnett
    I got this from Raincoast as well. I did not love the first one in this series but I didn’t hate it either and I am rather curious to find out how things play out for the main character.


  1. The Agency: The Body at the Tower – Y. S. Lee
    I’ve been meaning to start my collection of this series and when I saw the second one at Chapters discounted, I couldn’t resist.
  2. The Tough Guide to FantasyLand – Diana Wynne Jones
    So I’m writing a fantasy and my friend Janet said that no one should even think about writing a fantasy novel without reading this one first. So, I purchased this. Plus it’s DWJ, guys, how could I go wrong?
  3. The Tiger’s Wife – Tea Obreht
    I heard about this book way back when it was released and was gaining lots of superlatives and laudatory reviews. I’m super curious about it. Plus, I found a nearly new copy at the library used books rack so banzai!
  4. The Shining Girls – Lauren Beaukes
    I flirted with this book for three weeks before finally picking it up. I got a shiny new hardcover for $7. A good deal if I do say so myself.
