Though it always seems like we’re adding to our stack of books on our list to read, this month it seems like we’ve been adding more than usual. Thanks to That Artsy Reader Girl for the TTT prompt!
The Hod King by Josiah Bancroft
While I wasn’t blown away by The Arm of the Sphinx, I know Bancroft’s writing and great characters will make for an enjoyable third entry in his Books of Babel series. Though I do wonder why he chose to make it a quartet and not a trilogy.
Memories of Ice by Steven Erikson
I’m struggling through Deadhouse Gates at the moment, but I am looking forward to the return of my favorite Malazan characters in the third book in the series.
Record of a Spaceborn Few by Becky Chambers
I’m looking forward to yet another adventure in Chambers’ colorful universe, the Galactic Commons. These books are always fun and cozy.
Touch by Courtney Maum
Indi recommended this one, and it sound like an interesting (albeit depressing) examination of our lives and the devices that control them.
Midworld by Alan Dean Foster
This is a pick for one of our book clubs—I don’t know very much about it, but I am looking forward to reading a classic sci-fi.
Sorry to Disrupt the Peace by Patty Yumi Cottrell
I saw this one in the bookstore about a month ago and was hooked from the very first page. I’m looking forward to this one.
Holding up the Universe by Jennifer Niven
I really enjoyed All The Bright Places so I thought I would give this one a try too.
Wishtree by Katherine Applegate
This one was a complete impulse buy. I loved the illustrations and from the description, it sounds like a heartwarming kids book.
The Poison Squad: One chemist’s single-minded crusade for food safety at the turn of the twentieth century by Deborah Blum
Last fall, I heard a podcast—I think it was RadioLab—talking about what poison control centers are like and how they even came to be. I found it fascinating, simply because in this day and age, so many of those types of services seem to be disappearing because we can look so much up online. Anyway, this book came up in their discussion and I immediately wanted to know more.
Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer
When I was in elementary school, the Artemis Fowl books were some of my favorites. I haven’t picked them up since then but with the movie coming out this year, I definitely want to give them another read soon.
