I have managed to pick up a good number of books in the last two weeks, including some fascinating reads that look like that they are going to be really cool. I actually got a real interesting mixture of books from several different genres and I look forward to checking them all out.
Usagi Yojimbo – Vol. 33: The Hidden by Stan Sakai
This is the latest volume of the excellent Usagi Yojimbo comic book series, which I am a massive fan of. I have actually read this one already (pretty much the day it came in) and I am hoping to get a review of this one up in the next day or so.
Hudson’s Kill by Paddy Hirsch
This should prove to be a good historical mystery novel. I quite enjoyed Hirsch’s first novel, The Devil’s Half Mile, last year and I am interested to see what he comes up with this time.
The Harp of Kings by Juliet Marillier
I have been hearing a lot of good buzz around The Harp of Kings and it sounds like it could be one of the best new fantasy books of the year. This is pretty high up on my reading list and should be a good one to check out.
Shatter City by Scott Westerfeld
This is an intriguing sounding young adult science fiction novel with a cool concept.
Deep River by Karl Marlantes
Deep River is a fairly massive historical novel that actually sounds really interesting. Following a Finnish family who settle in America at the start of the 20th century, this looks like it is going to be one of the those novels that follows it’s protagonists for a long period of time and several major historical events.
Evermore by Sara Holland
A very cool sounding young adult fantasy novel, should be a fun one to read.
Pretty Revenge by Emily Liebert
Let us round out this list with this compelling sounding revenge thriller from Emily Liebert. Pretty Revenge sounds like a pretty dark novel, and I am very curious to see what happens in it.
That is my latest book haul. Which books do you like the sound of the most? Make sure to stay tuned to see my reviews of all of these.
