The Postman Knock #13


This week I READ:


THAT WHICH BITES was recommended to me ages ago by a friend. OMG, it's shockingly good urban fantasy! Brutal, fast, furious and very raw. Reminded me a bit of  Angelfall by Susan Ee. Of course as soon as I finished that one I went and bought the rest of the series. DEAD SURROUND is book #2 and just as awesome. ARCHANGEL'S STORM was lovely. As soon as Nalini stopped writing about the same old Elena and Raphael her writing greatly improved. So far after Angel's Blood, this is the book I've enjoyed the most. THE POISON DIARIES just wasn't for me. However I think peeps who love Marcus Sedgwick will appreciate this type of writing as well.  PILGRIM OF THE SKY surprised me with lavish world descriptions and beautiful clothes Maddie had to wear. I was positively drooling. Great, unusual mystical multiverse novel, although slightly messy. I've enjoyed it though. UNTIMED was simply wonderful. I don't know why I am surprised. Andy is a very talented author, and this novel is brimming with adventure, time travel and fun teenage delinquents. At last, ASHES OF HONOR turned out to be simply awesome like everything Seanan does. Epic level of awesome, peeps.

WON:

Thank you, Candace!

EGALLEYS:

You might have realised already that I worship Taylor Stevens. Her books keep ending in my Best of 2011/2012 lists because she is that awesome. So when I saw The Doll, her third book on Netgalley I HAD to request it. It's not released until June so it will be a long wait for the review.
On the other hand, Earth Thirst is released next week and it's about environmental vampire-warriors. Of course I had to read it!

FOR REVIEW:

Thank you, Bloomsbury!

That's it. Have a nice Sunday!

Michelle said...

Great haul this week, I haven't read anything by Seanen McGuire so I will have to check her out. I have Dance of Shadows waiting to be read.

Check out my haul

Blodeuedd, I know - he was so sweet and gorgeous... but he always had been my favorite!

Miki, it's fae urban fantasy, and it's really really good. I hope you read it! I think Catching Jordan and Stealing Parker might still be reduced in price on kindle, but maybe not in France.

Kat, that's what hooked me! I thoght I've heard everything apart from that. :)

Dehlia, I'm a month behind myself. SO so bad...

kara-karina@Nocturnal Book Reviews said...

Michelle, try her - she is such an amazing urban fantasy writer. She also wrote Newsflesh trilogy as Mira Grant.

Ula (Blog of Erised) said...

Great haul, so many great books I've never heard of. I have to check them out immediately :D

kara-karina@Nocturnal Book Reviews said...

OOO, which ones, Ula? I'm always interested in peeps discovering new authors! :)

Jessica@a GREAT read said...

OOh nice! These are all new to me but I hope you enjoy them all!

Here's my STS

Have a GREAT day!

Old Follower :)

Ellie Warren said...

I've ordered a pile of Seanan books :)

Tabitha said...

Stealing Parker is really good! And that's the only book you got that I've read, so I hope you enjoy it. (:

kara-karina@Nocturnal Book Reviews said...

Ellie, first two books are a bit shaky, but you hit the third and OMG, no words. It's more and more awesome from third one onwards!

Tabitha, I really enjoyed Catching Jordan so I hope to do the same with Stealing Parker :)

kimbacaffeinate said...

Ok the Doll looks so creepy, read that next! (hehehe) looking forward to your review! The Sunday Post

kara-karina@Nocturnal Book Reviews said...

I think it's about human trafficking, Kimba. Taylor always has awesome edgy topic in her books.

Christina said...

Oooh, Miranda Kenneally. <3

I've never heard of Taylor Stevens....Guess I should look into those.

Joyous Reads said...

Great set of books you've got this week, K. I'm envious that you're ploughing through your TBR like a woman on a mission! I'm going to take a page out of your book and will try my best to catch up with you. :)

xoxo

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
