New Books and ARCs, 10/24/19

This stack features extra added Sugar! (That’s the cat.) And is otherwise a very very fine stack of new books and ARCs. What here is calling to you? Tell us all in the comments!
Sugar is calling to me, but the idea of a “Solarpunk” collection and someone in marketing allowing the use of Bloodchild as a title are interesting, too.
Hi Sugar! (Skritches ears)
Where did you find the time to read all those, John?
New N.K. Jemisin, check. The Solarpunk one looks like sustainable gardening from recycled materials.
The Lost Causes of Bleak Creek and The Monsters Know What They’re Doing fascinate me on title alone.
I sort of chomped at the air when I saw The City We Became, and I’ve been waiting for The Guinevere Deception for months.
Ooh Jemisin ARC. Much jealous.
N. K. Jemisin, of course.
I wanked it in a dookiehole!
So, does Sugar help you with the big words??? I am sure Sugar is very clever.
Repo Virtual and The Lost Causes of Bleak Creek look good! I’ll also need to take a look at Bloodchild, Mazes of Power, and The Girl With No Face
“The Monsters Know What They’re Doing” puts me in mind of international politics.
Awful state of affairs, but Keith Amman may have spun an entertaining yarn from the premiss. I’ll have a look a.s.a.p.
Bloodchild by Anna Stephens without a doubt!
Agreed, “The Monsters Know What They’re Doing” is a good title.
Definitely the Jemisin. I loved the short story that led to the book.
I’m intrigued by Upright Women Wanted. Looked for more info, and the tagline “Are you a coward or are you a librarian?” is outstanding. Setting looks good, too.
I’m itching to get Jemisin’s book… I rarely pre-order books, but I did this one.
N.K. Jemisin’s The City We Became. Already pre-ordered that sucker.
Ooh, The City We Became! And the new Dave Duncan. I wonder if that’s the last one in his pipeline? I’ve had several books from him on my stack, that I read this year to honor his death.
Looking forward to reading The City We Became.
Bleak Creek. I gotta love Rhett and Link. I am a bit of a Good Mythical Morning junkie. They make me laugh. I hope the book encapsulates their online vibe.
Definitely the Dave Duncan. As a beta reader this was a fantastic book. A great story to complete this trilogy. There are a few more books in the pipe that will be coming out in the future.
