This week's book haul
The Truth is a Cave in the Black Mountains by Neil Gaiman, illustrated by Eddie Campbell: Thanks Headline and Bookbridgr! I AM SO HAPPY I GOT THIS FOR REVIEW. :D You all know how much I like Neil Gaiman, right?
Extraction by Stephanie Diaz: Downloaded from Netgalley for a blog tour. (My first ever blog tour!) Sci-fi dystopia. The blurb is weird and fascinating!
My Soon-To-Be Sex Life by Judith Tewes: I heard about this from Jo @ Once Upon a Bookcase and decided to check it out. :D It has a very eye-catching title and cover!
Summer's Shadow by Anna Wilson: I know very little about this book. It has a pretty cover and it's UKYA (I think it probably straddles the line between MG and YA, though I don't know yet), so I requested it. Hopefully it'll be good!
Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo: Won this through Goodreads! Haven't read the first one yet, so I bought that one.
Abhorsen trilogy by Garth Nix: Whoo! I realised I'd never read these books before and I saw people getting excited for Clariel's release later this year and I was like... maybe I should read these. Because they definitely sound like books I'd really enjoy! I'm so excited about these. :D
A Voice in the Distance by Tabitha Suzuma: For Mental Health Awareness Month. Sequel to A Note of Madness which I read years ago and really liked. About a boy who's a talented musician with bipolar disorder.
Also Known As by Robin Benway: I wanted something fun and light in case I ever needed a break from all the more depressing books I might be reading this month, so I got this and Ask Again Later. Teenage spies! Hilarity! Romance!
Ask Again Later by Liz Czukas: I saw Lesley @ Books and Beautiful World tweet that this was good, I think, so I looked it up on Goodreads and it seemed like something I'd really enjoy. IT SEEMS SO CUTE. I can't wait to read it.
Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo: Well, like I said, I won the second book, and I know the third book's coming out soon and this seemed like a trilogy I really should check out, so. Here I am. :D
Ultraviolet by R.J. Anderson: I hear the sequel to this has an asexual character. Also, this book is just apparently really good? I DUNNO BUT THE BLURB IS SO INTRIGUING.
The Distance Between Us by Kasie West: Got the Kindle edition because it was on sale. I wanna try out Kasie West's writing! This seems like a pretty fun contemporary that a lot of people like, so.
