This being the first post I’m making now that I’ve got WordPress 3.1 installed, woo! Which has absolutely nothing to do with books, I’m just noting it for the record.
And now, some books! In print:
- Steam-Powered: Lesbian Steampunk Stories, edited by JoSelle Vanderhooft. Noting this again on the grounds that my print copy has shown up, so now I have a nice trade paperback edition for my shelves.
- The Likeness, by Tana French. Mystery. This is French’s second novel in her Dublin Murder Squad series. Buying in print on the grounds that I quite liked her first novel, and the ebook prices are on par with the trades, so screw it, buying in print.
Meanwhile, over in ebook land:
- Year of Miracles, by C.E. Murphy. Crowd-sourced work the awesome
mizkitdid for those of us who really like her Negotiator series. If you can’t get enough of Kit’s work, keep an eye out for further projects from her!
- The Scales of Justice, by Fred M. White. This is actually a freebie I slurped down off of Project Gutenberg Australia, to which I was alerted by
eeyorerin, who spoke highly of the amounts of delicious wtfery in this story.
- Northlight, by Deborah J. Ross. Fantasy. Re-release on Book View Cafe of a title published in the nineties, now with a new introduction by the author.
- Making the Rules, by Doranna Durgin. Romantic suspense. Previously orphaned Bombshell that went with a couple other Bombshells Durgin did, and bought because I’m a completist!
- Storm of Reckoning, by Doranna Durgin. Paranormal romance. Book 2 of her Reckoners series.
- Blackout, by Connie Willis. SF. Bought because lots of good buzz about it and it sounds like fun–time-travel into WWII plot.
- Kraken, by China Miéville. SF. Bought because I really need to get my Miéville on.
- Keeping Watch, by Laurie R. King. Mystery. Followup novel to Folly, which I read not too long ago, and which I quite enjoyed.
- Son of the Shadows, by Juliet Marillier. Fantasy. Book 2 of that series, and a re-buy of a book previously owned in print.
- Second Skin, by Caitlin Kittredge. Book 3 of her Nocturne City series, and a re-buy of a book previously owned in print.
This brings me up to 37 for the year.
