It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these posts and some of you will recognize that I’ve already reviewed Crystal Deception and In a Treacherous Court but I haven’t had much of a chance to get new books lately. Since this is a truly awful picture here are the titles from left to right:
- In a Treacherous Court by Michelle Diener
- Keeper of the King’s Secrets by Michelle Diener
- After the End by Amy Plum
- Crystal Deception by Doug J. Cooper
- Along the Watchtower by David Litwack
- The Lion and the Rose by Kate Quinn
- The Exiled Queen by Cinda WIlliams Chima
- Dreamless by Josephine Angelini
- Dark Triumph by Robin LaFevers
- Mistress of Rome by Kate Quinn
All of the books you see on the top level were sent to me by both authors and publishers. After reading and loving In a Treacherous Court I can’t wait to start on the second book, Keeper of the King’s Secrets. It promises to be exciting now that John and Susanna are married! After the End was sent to me by HarperCollins Canada after I requested it and I’ve actually read it already even though my review won’t be posted until April 30th. Of course I’ve already read and reviewed Crystal Deception but Along the Watchtower just arrived today! Since I did enjoy David Litwack’s previous work I’m very excited to see how he’s improved.
All of the books on the second layer are ones I ordered online from The Book Depository. The Lion and the Rose is the second book in Kate Quinn’s Borgia Chronicles and I can’t wait to see how Giulia’s story turns out. The Exiled Queen has me excited too because of the huge cliffhanger at the end of The Demon King. Dreamless was sort of disappointing because I really, really, really hate the cover of this edition. I much prefer the North American cover, but the story is the same and I can’t wait to start it. The only book out of a new series I ordered was the last one, Mistress of Rome by Kate Quinn. I love her Borgia Chronicles so I figured I’d see how she is at writing about ancient Rome. It should be exciting.
So what are you guys reading lately? See anything here that you like?
