New Books! I’m RICH!
It’s a banner day at my house when the postman arrives with a box full of new books! I always have to do a happy dance around the kitchen when I get the box unwrapped and take a look at the treasures within. Tuesday, three books I’ve had marked for MONTHS on my release date calendar finally arrived, and I’m still giddy to have them in my hot little hands!!
Most exciting might be the arrival of “Odd Apocalypse” after such a long, long wait. Dean Koontz has been torturing Oddie’s many fans with this one. I, for one, was not satisfied with the ending of the last Odd Thomas book, and have been dying to see where the story is heading next. After much ooohing and aaahing over the pretty cover, I’ve placed the book on the table right beside The Comfy Chair, where it will reside until I finish the book I’m currently reading, “Spellcast.” “Odd Apocalypse” will be next on the list, and you can be assured, I will be reviewing it here very soon.
The second much awaited book, “Gunmetal Magic,” is a spinoff from a series I have been enjoying for several years. Anyone who is a fan of the husband and wife writing team of Ilona Andrews and the Magic world of Kate Daniels has probably been as eager to get their hands on this one as I have. It features Andrea Nash, Kate’s sidekick & best friend, as the central character, who has secrets of her own. I’m really looking forward to sinking my teeth into it, pardon the expression.
And last, but no means least, is Rob Thurman’s “All Seeing Eye,” the start of a brand new series. Since it’s new, I have no idea what to expect, except more of the same strong writing, scary bad guys, and wicked humor that is the hallmark of Thurman’s Leandros Brothers series, which is a HUGE favorite of mine. I have also thoroughly enjoyed her Trickster books, and The Korsak Brothers series, for all the same reasons.
Yes, a great day, indeed. My To Be Read Basket runneth over! Be still, my heart!
What’s new in YOUR Reading Basket? Have you picked up your copies of any of these three?
