Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the amazing The Broke and The Bookish! I am so grateful these wonderful bloggers came up with such a great way to connect us all! Plus, it is great fun!
I will be on holiday when this is published – loving the scheduling system right now! These will have been accurate before I left – hopefully I don’t go on an airport spree! I really don’t have enough room in my carry-on for too many more books!
1. Denton Little’s Deathdate – Lance Rubin
A lovely review copy from Simon and Schuster! I have already devoured and reviewed this one! It is hysterically funny and I am so glad I was given the opportunity to read it!
2. Extraordinary Means – Robyn Schneider
Another review copy from the brilliant Simon and Schuster team! This is coming on holiday with me, so hopefully I’ll have a review up shortly after I get back! It sounds amazing, yet sad all at the same time! From the blurb, there feels like a little bit of a similarity to The Fault in Our Stars, but I will just have to wait and see!
3. Me Being Me is Exactly As Insane As You Being You – Todd Hasak-Lowy
I was very spoilt by Simon and Schuster early this month with this finishing up my pile of review copies – this one is coming away with me too! Can’t wait to read this book which is written completely in lists and sounds absolutely fascinating!
4. American Gods – Neil Gaiman
I have been meaning to read more Gaiman since I read Good Omens – absolutely awesome, by the way! I picked American Gods because, after an amazing night at ComicCon where I got to meet Jason Momoa (or Khal Drogo from Game of Thrones), he mentioned wanting to play the main character. I have to get into this story!
5. An Ember in the Ashes – Sabaa Tahir
Review copies also came from HarperVoyager at the end of last month – I had been spending way too much money on books, so I self-imposed a book ban and am relying on review copies to keep me up-to-date! This was absolutely amazing! I devoured it ridiculously quickly and posted very soon after! A great new fantasy with minor but awesome Roman influences.
6. The Vagrant – Peter Newman
Another review copy from HarperVoyager. This book wasn’t quite what I expected, but has brilliant characters! I’m much better at blogging about review copies I receive!
7. The Forests of Silence – Emily Rodda
This has recently come into my possession, though it isn’t going to finish its journey here! It is a gift for my boyfriend’s nephew, though I’ll be holding onto it until I see him at the end of July! Can’t wait to pass on my love for the Deltora Quest series!
8. A Dance of Cloaks – David Dalglish
I have been meaning to purchase this one for a while – it looks like a really cool fantasy series! But every time I have gone to buy it, the store copies have been damaged and I have had to wait! I’m really excited to finally have a pretty copy, though I haven’t gotten around to reading it yet…..
9. The Way of Shadows – Brent Weeks
I bought this one because I am craving more Brandon Sanderson – he writes quickly, but not quickly enough for me! So I needed another great fantasy author and so many people have recommended Brent Weeks!
10. Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda – Becky Albertalli
I am so very very glad I bought this one – I was tossing up for days and days whether I should! There is a chance that I will have to buy another copy though – I have lent it to a friend and he might love it so much I might never get it back!
What books have come into your possession recently? Any that you just couldn’t keep your hands off?
