This week’s stack of new books and ARCs has some very choice titles in it, I have to say. What here is speaking to you? Tell us all in the comments!
Noir! I’m number 2 on the wait list at the library. I hope it is as good as Lamb was
Oh hey! A new Naomi Novik book!
*adds to library hold queue*
Cannot WAIT for Noir!
The Naomi Novik would be great. I really enjoyed her Temeraire series until the last couple. I felt the central conceit became increasingly cumbersome as she expanded the story further into the world at large. But then she completely switched gears with Uprooted, which I thought was terrific.
I’ve been waiting for Noir.
The Novik, the Schow and the Kadrey.
Sure would like to get my hands on Hollywood Dead before August.
Wasn’t aware of the new Naomi Novik, added to my shopping list!
I can’t wait for Naomi Novik’s SPINNING SILVER. I loved UPROOTED! And we’re big Christopher Moore fans in our house, too.
Oh, Naomi Novik’s Spinning silver for sure(she really does have agift for storytelling), but The Last Sun also sounds interesting!
Afterwar looks interesting!
Oh the new Naomi Novik! I really liked the short-story version in The Starlit Wood and I can’t wait to see how she expands it.
Been a while since I read David Schow. I always enjoyed his splatterpunk books, so I’ll have to check this one out.
I’d like a ticket for the Novik train. Both my wife and I were enthralled by Uprooted.
AHHH!!! HOLLYWOOD DEAD and NOIR!
The John Schwartz book has the most SF Title, I’d like that one…
Ooh, ooh! Anything involving Rachel Cohn!
I’ll take the Christopher Moore and Richard Kadrey, please….
A new Christopher Moore! I’ve been waiting.
New Novik! Uprooted is one of my favorite books, I’m excited for this one.
Odd how people get ARCs at different times. I thought I read that ARCs for Noir were sent out in October or November. Or maybe that was uncorrected page proofs. In any case, despite bad financial straits, I will be picking up Noir ASAP. Maybe I’ll go to Amazon and preorder it now with points…
“Hollywood Dead” already!?!
DO WANT the new Naomi Novik.
I’ve already had a couple of requests for ‘Noir’, despite its being embargoed at the library until actual release date. We will be acquiring it, o yes my precioussss…
Ohhhh…I am off to the ‘Zon to see if Noir is available for preorder…
Noir, Spinning Silver & Afterwar – in that order!
I haven’t read any Lilith Saintcrow for some years now so maybe I’ll give Afterwar a spin.
Oh, man, I’m feeling a little lonely now.
Kadrey, Moore and Novik! Yum!
Spinning Silver! I’m so excited.
Noir and Kadrey please.
Oooooo, a new Novik book? Preordered!
Ooh! Ooh! Naomi Novik!! “Uprooted” was incredible. Even better than the Temeraire series, which is saying a LOT.
Oh, I am so coveting that copy of Spinning Silver!
