IMM #22, February Releases and what to expect next month

Hello, me dears!
I had a really good week bookwise, hopefully starting a new job on Monday, and generally looking forward to the next month. How about you?
In my mailbox...



The Rook is a mysterious puzzle, Starters is a dystopian, A Handful of Earth has Russian mythology in times of Mongolian invasion and Westlake Soul is about superheroes. Ember is a small prequel to Firelight.

For review

This is book #2, it looks like fantasy, and I haven't read book #1... but I'll give it a go anyway. Thank you, Berkley UK!


 Karin Harlow's Enemy Lover, book #1 was very much urban fantasy rather than pure paranormal romance, and I liked that enough to go for a book #2, which has been on my wishlist for ages :)


Wanted to finish this series for ages, and now I can! Thanks to awesome friends :) You know who you are *wink*


read on Goodreads

What's in your mailbox, ladies and gents?

Some relaxing music and man candy per usual arrangement :)
I miss Asia sometimes...
Atesh Salih see copyrighted portfolio here has an interesting Turkish-German origin, studied martial art and is now a British actor and a model. It's the eyes, they are absolutely stunning!
Now for the books I'm expecting to be released next month...
So far, expect from the next month a guest post from an author, a Valentine Day giveaway and usual monthly features, anything else will be a nice bonus :)
This is it for today, happy Sunday!

Mel said...

Yes, good luck for Monday. Starting new job is always scary!

Some interesting books - Embers looks good! :-)

kara-karina@Nocturnal Book Reviews said...

Thanks, Mel! Yeah, I am jittery at this point :) Hopefully, it will go well!

Melliane said...

A lot of books I didn't know about. But I'm curious to read Ember, it sounds like a nice read! Enjoy them all!


Lesley said...

Firstly, good luck on Monday. Secondly, that's some mighty fine man candy there I might steal him for a book boyfriend I have in mind. Finally, I requested Ember too as I just got accepted for Firelight (which sounds A-mazing)

Ps I posted Tempest on Thursday so you should get it on Monday/Tuesday.

kara-karina@Nocturnal Book Reviews said...

Thanks, Lesley! Can't wait to read it. Also did you look at his portfolio? He reminds me a bit of David Gandi - kind of intense, and I love his eyes!

Brodie said...

OMG. That picture *swoon* Sarah Alderson (author of Hunting Lila and Fated) has that image as her perfect fit for Lucas in Fated and HELLO SEXY <3 So many awesome books! I am so freaking excited to get my hands on Born Wicked and Staters, they sound fantastic. I have a copy of Arcadia Awakens which I hope to dive into soon. Enjoy!

Giselle said...

Some great books this week! Love the look of the Geek books, they sound cute! Happy reading :). And really looking forward to Born Wicked - great books releasing next month!

Hannah @ Dragons and Whimsy said...

If you want to check your library/local charity shops (I found it a few times in ours) for book one of the Paul Hoffman series, it's called The Left Hand of God and they do sound pretty awesome. Worth a go!

Evie said...

I'm so excited for Born Wicked to be released:D The ARC has such a touchy-touchy cover (by touchy-touchy I mean a cover that just begs to be touched and patted - soooo nice to the touch!).

You got some really great books! Starters looks so creepy, I got it too :D Very excited for it!
Enjoy your books, Kara!

Ellie said...

I'm going to look up Paul Hoffman now. A few people have received this book and don't really know anything about it!

Alyssa Kirk said...

Hope your job goes well! You definitely got some choice books. I'm jealous! Thanks for the eye candy!

Lena said...

Great set! The Geek books look cute. I want to read Born Wicked.

Candace said...

Starters has a truly creepy cover! It's weird cause it's so simple.
A Handful of Earth sounds very interesting...

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
