Incoming….. #TBR #fantasy #thriller #books

I had itchy blogging fingers and while I am reading a very-very good 700+ page fantasy Behemoth courtesy of NetGalley…

37798283

…I wanted to pop together a post of my upcoming titles you can expect some reviews for- in due course, naturally!

In no particular order, here they are:

Dark Matter by Blake Crouch | Darkest Kiss by Gena Showalter |

Promise of Blood by Brian McClellan | Art of War- Anthology for Charity by Various Authors

Avalon Wishes by Alexa Whitewolf | Malice by John Gwynne | Song by Jesse Teller |

The Good Samaritan by John Marrs | Hydra by Matt Wesolowski

 

Have you read any of these titles and wish to give me some thoughts before I go into them?

What’s your immediate TBR like and anything particular you’re super excited to read next?Β

    • Hahaha, of course! I have a feeling fitting it asap in won’t be a problem as it sounds so good that once I start I won’t stop until I’ve read it in one sitting… that’s the good feeling I have about it anyway πŸ™‚

    • Aw, yes… What was it recently I thought I have no problem watching and absolutely no go on reading… hmm, can’t remember but I can relate to this… Some fantasy is just sooooo good πŸ™‚ Hope they will end up making movies out of those really good ones in the future, so πŸ™‚

          • See and I love it. Not the Star Trek type stuff but like “The Martian” or really good speculative fiction. At the same time I can say I love the Star Wars movies, even the cartoons but I find the books BORING! lol

            • Interesting.. I wonder how I would get along with The Martian book because the movie was bang on good… I think the book is written in a way that’s fun and engaging, though… my boss reads scifi.. like hardcore scifi and he’s always like- this is good and I’m like- yeah, no! πŸ˜€

    • Oh yes- I remember! The mystery/police procedurals! hahaha… I can’t stand reading them because they can be so painfully detailed and slow (not like thrillers) for me but I don’t mind watching the shows!

  1. Malice for the win!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Get on Team Gwynne Lizzykins! Though after a 700-page fantasy read I’d pick something else first I have to say. Dark Matter always intrigued me, I’m not big on SFF though do have not bothered with it myself but it seems to get far more positive praise than negative. Oh, Hydra, I am seeing that book everywhere and it has a stunning cover and sounds dark, creepy and awesome! πŸ™‚

    • Can’t wait to get on the Gwynne Team, finally πŸ™‚ I think the fact of the new book spurred me into action with the series.. read it first, you know… and Hydra- yes- there’s metal references and everything in Hydra (there was in Six Stories as well by author) so that should be nice πŸ™‚ – have high hopes for it, that’s for sure πŸ™‚

  2. Ah Malice and Hydra are on my list and Art of War anthology on my radar. Anthologies are so hit and miss with me, maybe your review can tip the scale and knock it into my list πŸ˜‰ I really hope you enjoy Dark Matter more than I did. Many loved it. For myself, it was a let down. Happy reading!

    • I sure do hope I can convince you to read the anthology… some really good authors are involved… and I hope I am going to enjoy the living daylights out of this one πŸ˜€
      Ooooh… Interesting… Dark Matter didn’t live up to the hype for you…Now I am really curious πŸ˜€ Thanks, Dani! ❀

  3. Promise of Blood is one of my favorites. Brian McClellan was a student of Brandon Sanderson, and the apple didn’t fall far from the tree! I do recommend you spend some time in the 6 prequel novellas first before you get into book 1, though. They give just enough insight and color to the characters that it really opens up the nuances and makes the whole Powder Mage trilogy even better. They aren’t numbered, but here’s the order they should be read:
    1. Foresworn
    2. Servant of the Crown
    3. Murder at the Kinnen Hotel
    4. Hope’s End
    5. The Girl of Hrusch Avenue
    6. The Face in the Window
    Not required, but recommended. Good luck!

    • Ooooh… Good to hear about Hydra and Dark Matter… The Good Samaritan… what put you off it? πŸ™‚ I’ve read The One by Marrs and loved it and I’ve heard TGS is different but I kind of can’t wait πŸ™‚

      • The repetition, I won’t say any more than that but once you’ve read it, we’ll discuss more πŸ™‚ I haven’t read The One yet and I’m worried to now, despite how good everyone tells me it is πŸ™ˆ

        • Ah yes.. the repetition.. I thik I read about it in some reviews… However, The One- is a totally different kettle of fish and you should defo give it a go… short chapters and it’s just bang-bang-bang and tons of twists and characters.. I found it really hard to put down… very good! So, I do await with anticipation your thoughts on The One if you decide to take the plunge πŸ™‚

    • Good to hear Promise of Blood was one of your faves… πŸ™‚ I actually can’t wait to you know, finish some books already and start reading it πŸ˜€ I’ll get there though…

      I have a feeling you’ll get to Malice before I do so I’ll keep my eyes peeled for your thoughts πŸ™‚

      • Haha I do hope you will enjoy it! I was actually surprised I did that much because I’m normally not all that into sci-fi… But Dark Matter convinced me.

  7. I will be keeping my eye out for your thoughts on Dark Matter because I had seen a stellar review for it back when the ARC was on NetGalley, but right before I was going to request it one of my blogging buddies gave a scathing review for it and when I brought up the stellar review, she said that the book the other blogger reviewed was not the same book. I found out after it was too late to request it, that it was the same book and I saw more great reviews for it after the fact. Ugh. I am hoping my library has the ebook because I would still like to read it. 😝
