This has been a fun week. The temperatures have been warming up, the sun is out (finally), we made it a week with no rain, and I just want to throw a party. That’s partly why I suggested we start a writing challenge on this blog. I think it would be fun to get to know some of you better and give everybody a chance to share some of their work. I’d really like this blog to be more of a community, rather than “all mine.”
In other news, I’ll soon be posting some sample chapters from Broken Fate, so stay tuned if you want to get a little taste of the book before it releases!
- Otherworld Secrets, by Kelley Armstrong. This is a collection of short stories featuring various characters from Armstrong’s Otherworld series. If you haven’t read any of the novels in the series, these tales might not make much sense. However, I can’t recommend the series enough if you like paranormal romance with a lot of adventure.
- Riders, by Veronica Rossi. A book about a kid who becomes War, one of the four horsemen of the apocalypse? And he and his friends are the good guys? Yes, please. First of all, there aren’t enough books with boys as the protagonists, so it’s refreshing to see another one. Second, the four horsemen is a myth/legend that hasn’t really been done to death. Exciting.
- The Dark Days Club, by Alison Goodman. This one is being compared favorably to Libba Bray’s Gemma Doyle trilogy, so that alone was enough for me to pick it up. It’s the story of a society girl in Regency London who also happens to be a demon hunter. Not exactly a common occurrence in those days.
