  1. Royal Rabbits of London piques my interest. I’ll have to go look that one up!

  2. Why are they all blue? WHY ARE THEY ALL BLUE!!!!!!

    (I don’t know why the drama. It just seemed to fit.)

  3. @Dan – You beat me to it! I too noticed they all featured the color blue. Another clever Scalzi Easter egg sussed out by his faithful and ever observant readers. Try as you may, you can’t trick us, Scalzi! Nyahaha!

  4. Joe Abercrombie absolutely and a couple where I just like the titles: The Royal Rabbits of London and Pride and Prometheus. Also Sue Burke because she asked and why not?

  5. Do you actually find time to read everything that gets sent to you in these stacks? More importantly, do you still have time to read the other things you want to read?

  6. Abercrombie. I know, I’m already the fourth person to mention him. But hey, the guy writes great stuff.

  7. The Sarah Beth Durst is the third book in a trilogy and I enjoyed the first two, so that’s one I’ll definitely be reading. Also, Semiosis has very nice reviews on Good Reads so I’ll add that to my to-be-read list. Someday I’ll try Abercrombie again; I started “Half a King” and it didn’t hold my interest. I suspect it had more to do with me than the author, since most folks seem to really like his books.

  8. Queen of Sorrow for sure; I enjoyed the first two books in the series and am looking forward to the next one. Semiosis has some good reviews on Good Reads, so I’ve added Sue Burke’s book to my to-be-read queue. Someday I’ll give Abercrombie another try; I couldn’t get into Half a King, but he seems quite popular.

  9. Read me! Here’s the blurb from my publisher: “Set in a near future Washington, D.C., a clever, incisive, and fresh feminist twist on a classic literary icon—Sherlock Holmes—in which Dr. Janet Watson and covert agent Sara Holmes will use espionage, advanced technology, and the power of deduction to unmask a murderer targeting Civil War veterans.”

  10. Gunpowder moon looks interesting. A murder mystery on the moon with some decent use of science.
