Kat, Incorrigible by Stephanie Burgis
I’ve been curious about this series for a while now & have only heard wonderful things about it!
The Cavendish Home for Boys and Girls by Claire Legrand
Another book that have received WONDERFUL reviews. I recently received an ARC of The Year of Shadows which will be released in August and wanted to read her first book beforehand.
The Menagerie by Tui T. Sutherland & Kari Sutherland
Griffin babies, pompous unicorns, an attention-seeking phoenix. What’s not to love!
After discovering the brilliance of Evelyn Waugh recently I’ve been on a kick. With my discount at work I was able to get all three of these for $6!
Oh, Mr. Fforde. After a disaster of an introduction I gave Fforde another shot a few years ago and ~saw the light~ He’s definitely an acquired taste, but he’s also an author I’ve come to frequently recommend.
* Also pictured is the third season of Deadwood. This I didn’t buy, but borrowed from work (awesome perks, right??). Matt and I have become pretty obsessed with this show and we’re sad to see it come to an end.
The Chronicles of Chrestomanci vol. 3 by Diana Wynne Jones
Technically I won a giftcard and this is what I bought with it. 12-ish years ago I read the first two volumes and had no idea there was a third. As soon as I heard about it I NEEDED to have it. :) & now I do.
The Testing by Joelle Charbonneau
This one was available for a few days on netgalley and already it’s garnered some pretty high praise.
What did you guys get this week?
IN CASE YOU MISSED IT
It’s not often that I post non-fiction reviews (though I ADORE non-fic), so when I do you know it’s worth mentioning! My Beloved Brontosaurus by Brian Switek was great. It’s very science-y, but written and explained in a way that anyone can enjoy it. Also: dinosaurs.
Another rare sight here are novellas. Looks like I threw caution to the wind this week! It’s no secret I adore Brigid Kemmerer’s Elemental series. While I tend to avoid side-stories, I’ll make an exception for her and I reviewed Breathless, Nick’s story.
That I love Middle Grade is yet another well-known fact. Infestation by Timothy J. Bradley & The Menagerie by Tui T. & Kari Sutherland were both great – and fun – stories.
