New Books and ARCS, 6/21/19

For the longest day of the year (here in the northern hemisphere, anyway), one of the highest stacks of new books and ARCs we’ve had for the year to date! What here in this super-sized stack would be what you’d want to read late into evening? Share in the comments!

  1. Oh! I’ve been waiting for Protect the Prince since the minute I finished Kill the Queen! Preordered it and can’t wait.

  2. If that’s a new Turtledove and not one of the series I never got into, I am interested.
    Torn between not wanting to read a Minecraft book and wanting to read a Mur Lafferty book. She can probably make it interesting to read even for non-players.

  3. As an occasional Minecraft player and Mur Lafferty fan, I’m definitely going to watch it for that one.

    The D&D books struck me as a bit outside what we usually see in these stacks.

  4. I’m interested in The Twisted Ones, but, based on comments on Twitter, I don’t think I’d want to read it late into the evening.

  5. I would gleefully read T. Kingfisher’s The Twisted Ones late into the night and then probably be unable to sleep until morning light and be wrecked the next day. Worth it.

    Merlin Redux by Dave Duncan looks interesting. I really liked his A Man of His Word series.

  6. Bonnie McDaniel – United States – Writer, blogger, reader. I mainly write about things I read and watch, and occasionally rant about politics. I'm not afraid of arguing--I rather like it, but I also know when to cut my losses. (On the Internet, that point usually comes sooner rather than later.)

    Jennifer Estep’s Protect the Prince and T. Kingfisher’s The Twisted Ones. Have both preordered.

  7. Hex Life, The Eagle Has Landed & Dave Duncan’s last book. =sigh= I hadn’t heard he had passed away. =( He was one of the first authors I ever met. Such a nice guy.

  8. The Turtledove one , judging by the amazon description, is new ground for him. quote New York Times bestselling author Harry Turtledove reveals a new side of his potent imagination in a gripping speculative novel about the End of Days—and a discovery in the Middle East that turns the world upside down. unquote.

  9. Hope Griffin Diaz – North Carolina – So, to borrow from a popular shirt, I love Jesus but I cuss a little. Well, a lot. In fact, I just don't believe Jesus really gives a shit about the word fuck. He does care if you say f you or go f yourself. But a general adjective? Nah. I am married to the love of my life, Louie (aka Luis) and have an adult child, Christy. My mum, Nancy, is still with us and active in our lives. I love to read, I fancy myself an amateur gardener, I am owned by a large black part machine coon cat named Samwise aka #SamSam and a Border Collie/Australian Cattle dog mix named Daisy. I knit. I craft. I sew. These are at my leisure and are hobbies. I don't take commissions nor do I do alterations. I'm an aspiring human being. I battle several mental illnesses including depression, major panic disorder, agoraphobia, germaphobia, claustrophobia, and some other assorted illnesses. I also have fibromyalgia and have had numerous traumatic brain injuries (into the double digits now). I am not able to drive more than a few miles at night. I don't know where this blog is going ... if anywhere.

    The Girl with No Face

  10. ‘The Chilling Effect’, because it’s described as ‘an offbeat space opera’. Starting vacation soon, and it sound like fun.
    ‘The Lesson’, had an interesting premise, and a debut work is always worth checking out.

  11. Dave Duncan…died? Please tell me I read that wrong! I’m off to check with Google. Fingers crossed it’s a hoax. Love his books.

  12. Chilling Effect and Salvation Day, both, and from the descriptions, to be read straight through in place of sleeping or eating.

  13. The Girl with No Face and the anthology one. I’m a little hesitant about Turtledove because he hasn’t always done really well with race, from things of his that I’ve read. That being said, I did enjoy his Ruled Brittania, so…maybe?

  14. I have enjoyed Turtledove in the past, but frequently his novels wander off into a long series with less real interesting plot in every volume. This may be different if it’s a single novel with a beginning, middle and end.

  15. Definitely a Mur Lafferty fan. Missed it in the pile, so I’m glad the commenters pointed it out. Looks very odd. I must have a word with Google about it.

  16. Didn’t spot the T. Kingfisher book until someone pointed it out. Wonder if Ursula Vernon posted about it and I just didn’t get the memo :P All her books are belong to me. Also, new Babymouse! Passing that info along to our children’s librarian.
