It has been a good couple of weeks for me book wise, as I have been lucky enough to receive a bunch of fantastic books which I am really looking forward to reading. I have actually ended up with quite an impressive collection of books, and I have been looking forward to checking out a bunch of them for a while now.
To Kill a Man by Sam Bourne
To Kill a Man is the latest exciting political thriller from bestselling author Sam Bourne, whose work I have been meaning to check out for a while. I have actually already read To Kill a Man and it is a very good read and I loved how the story turned out. I am working on a review for it now and will hopefully post it up soon.
Night Lessons in Little Jerusalem by Rick Held
This is a powerful and captivating World War II historical drama from debuting Australian author Rick Held. I just started reading Night Lessons in Little Jerusalem today and so far I am really enjoying this well-written and haunting novel.
Aurora Burning by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
This is a book that I have been looking forward to for a while. Aurora Burning is the fantastic sounding second book in the Aurora Cycle, a thrilling young adult science fiction series from Australian writing duo Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. I loved the first book in this series, Aurora Rising, last year, and I cannot wait to read the sequel.
The Last Emperox by John Scalzi
The Last Emperox is an intriguing science fiction novel from John Scalzi, which serves as the third and final book in The Interdependency trilogy. I am a tad conflicted about reading this book as I haven’t had a chance to check out the first two novels in this series first. However, I have heard really good things about Scalzi’s books in the past, so I think I’ll give it a go.
The Girl and the Stars by Mark Lawrence
Now this is one that I am really excited to read. The Girl and the Stars is easily one of the most anticipated fantasy novels of 2020, and I am rather glad I managed to get a copy of it. I have been meaning to read some of Lawrence’s books for some time now, as each of his prior novels sounds pretty darn amazing, and have received a lot of praise in the past. As a result, I am rather keen to check out The Girl and the Stars, which is the first book in a brand new series from Lawrence. It is apparently set in the same universe as The Book of the Ancestors series, and I am hoping that my first introduction to Lawrence’s work will lead me to check out some of his prior work.
Monstrous Heart by Claire McKenna
The final book on this list is Monstrous Heart by Australian author Claire McKenna. This is an interesting sounding fantasy debut that could prove to be really good and which I am looking forward to finding out more about.
Well that’s the end of my latest book haul post. Let me know which books on this list you are most excited to read and stay tuned for my upcoming reviews of each of these fantastic books.
