It has been a bit of a slow month book-wise for me, but I have still received several amazing books to read and review, so I thought I would take the time to highlight them in a book haul post. While the books have been few, they are actually a pretty impressive collection of novels, and represent some of the top novels of 2020. I have been looking forward to a number of these books for a while, and several have recently appeared on my most anticipated releases for the second half of 2020 list and my Winter TBR list. Each of these books sounds really amazing and I cannot wait to get through all of them.
A horror book about Sasquatches written by the author of World War Z, yes please! I have already read and reviewed this book and it is pretty damn good.
The Constant Rabbit by Jasper Fforde
The Constant Rabbit is a fun and unique new novel that I am currently reading. Fforde has always come up with some amusing and memorable books (such as his 2018 release, Early Risers), and this new one is pretty crazy, featuring anthropomorphised rabbits in an alternate version of Great Britain.
The sequel to last years Alphabet Squadron, Shadow Fall looks set to be another action-packed and impressive Star Wars novels that sets two rival groups of pilots against each other. Guaranteed to be a fun and exciting blast, this should be a great one to check out.
The Gates of Athens by Conn Iggulden
The Gates of Athens is the latest novel from one of the top historical fiction authors in the world, Conn Iggulden. I am a major fan of Iggulden’s writing (check out my review for his last book, The Falcon of Sparta), and this looks set to be one of the best historical releases of 2020.
The Night Swim by Megan Goldin
This next book is a fantastic sounding murder mystery novel from Australian author Megan Goldin, who wrote the awesome 2018 release, The Escape Room. The Night Swim has an amazing concept behind it and I am really looking forward to seeing how it turns out.
The final entry on this list is the impressive sounding fantasy novel, The Obsidian Tower by Melissa Caruso, a copy of which I picked up today. I really enjoyed Caruso’s debut series, the Sword and Fire trilogy (made up of The Tethered Mage, The Defiant Heir and The Unbound Empire), and this latest book is set in the same universe. I think that this has a lot of potential and I am very excited for it.
That is the end of this book haul and as you can see I have quite a bit of reading to do. I am hoping to get some great new books in the next couple of weeks, and will hopefully be able to do another book haul post soon. Until then let me know which of the above books most interests you and I’ll try to read them first.
