I have been having an absolutely fantastic couple of week for books, as I have been lucky enough to receive several incredible and amazing new novels from some of my local publishers. As I am anticipating getting some more books in the near future, I thought I would take this opportunity to highlight some of the recent releases I have received before my new book pile got too big. These novels include some truly awesome new releases, several of which I have been eagerly awaiting for some time. I am extremely keen to read all of the books below and I cannot wait to check them out.
The first book in this haul is one of my most anticipated reads for the year, The Wisdom of Crowds by Joe Abercrombie. The third and final novel in The Age of Madness series, The Wisdom of Crowds continues the epic story started in A Little Hatred (one of the best books of 2019) and continued in The Trouble with Peace (one of the best books and audiobooks of 2020), bringing the entire series towards a dark and deadly conclusion. I am reading this book at the moment, and so far it is pretty exceptional. I cannot wait to see how it ends and I already know that this is going to be one of the top books of 2021.
The Apollo Murders by Chris Hadfield (Trade Paperback)
Next on this list we have the awesome and compelling space thriller, The Apollo Murders by Chris Hadfield. This cool book is set in 1973 and follows a top-secret space mission to the Moon, filled with murder, espionage and a ton of technical detail. I really like the sound of this novel and I am very excited to check it out.
I was lucky enough to receive The Bone Ship’s Wake by RJ Barker, another outstanding novel that I have been looking forward to for ages. Written by one of the fastest rising authors of dark fantasy fiction, The Bone Ship’s Wake is the third and final novel in The Tide Child trilogy, which follows the condemned crew of a ship made out of dragon bone. The previous two novels in this series, The Bone Ships and Call of the Bone Ships, have both been epic five-star reads and I have extremely high hopes for this amazing novel.
Viral by Robin Cook (Trade Paperback)
I also received a copy of Viral, a novel about a pandemic by acclaimed medical thriller author Robin Cook. Containing a very topical narrative, Viral sounds like a fascinating and powerful thriller, and it should prove to be quite an intriguing read.
The Jasmine Throne by Tasha Suri (Trade Paperback)
Bestselling fantasy author Tasha Suri returns with the first entry in a brand new trilogy, The Jasmine Throne. This compelling and exciting new fantasy novel has an interesting sounding narrative filled with magic, wars and complex characters, and I look forward to seeing what awesome ideas Suri fits into this novel.
Lies like Wildfire by Jennifer Lynn Alvarez (Trade Paperback)
One of the books I recently received that I am particularly curious about is the young adult novel Lies like Wildfire by Jennifer Lynn Alvarez. This book follows a group of teenagers who accidently start a deadly forest fire and then attempt to cover it up. I really like the sound of this thrilling and dramatic novel, and I have a feeling that I am going to have a great time reading it.
Treasure & Dirt by Chris Hammer (Trade Paperback)
The final book I received was the new thriller novel from Australian author Chris Hammer, Treasure & Dirt. Treasure & Dirt is another fantastic sounding outback thriller, which examines a brutal murder in a corrupt mining town. This sounds like a very fun read and I look forward to seeing what awesome story Hammer has come up with.
Well that’s the end of this latest Book Haul post. As you can see I have quite a bit of reading to do at the moment thanks to all these awesome books that have come in. Let me know which of the above you are most interested in and make sure to check back in a few weeks to see my reviews of them.
