New Books and ARCs, 4/15/22

Welcome to your Easter and Passover stack of new books and ARCs! What here is catching your eye on this weekend of reflection and celebration? Share, as always, in the comments.
Since I preordered Seasonal Fears, definitely an easy call to make from this stack.
For things I could read this weekend, I do have A Memory Called Empire lurking on my kindle.
Ooh, I want Alma Katsu’s THE FERVOR! She was amazing to talk with on #VoxVomitus. (Invitation still stands for you to join us, too!)
I’m excited about SEASONAL FEARS!
Nice stack of books!
What catches my eyes? Well, anything by Seanan McGuire certainly will. Also, birdwatching book, The Fervor, and A Memory Called Empire. And The Embroidered Book sounds intriguing, also.
The Memory Librarian sounds interesting. So does A Memory Called Empire. I guess memory is my theme this week.
Stars And Bones
Read and loved, thanks to The Big Idea.
The one I want is that SubPress edition of Arkady Martine’s A Memory Called Empire, which was frickin’ awesome, as was her follow-up A Desolation Called Peace.
However the one that caught my eye is The Memory Librarian. I had no idea Janelle Monáe was an author in addition to everything else she does.
Actually I take all that back… holy crap Middlegame companion novel gimme gimme gimme
Is that a book called “Seasonal Fears” by an author named Seanan McGuire, or a book called “Seanan McGuire” by an author named Seasonal Fears?
(Not a serious question. Instead, a satire on the question raised by last week’s book by Ben Bova)
I want all of them this time even though I have Memory
You haven’t read A Memory Called Empire yet? Daaaaayum. You’re in for a great ride. The sequel is nearly as awesome.
So freaking jealous of that copy of Seasonal Fears!
Definitely plan to get my hands on a copy of Seasonal Fears. Probably at Balticon, where Seanan is one of the guests.
I am intrigued by The Memory Librarian.
Scalzi! (to be screamed a la ‘Khan!’) I’ve only just started Wil Wheaton’s memoir thanks to you, and now you tempt me with all these new (or newish) titles?
Just knowing there’s something out there by Seanan M. means my weekend plans have changed. Where I’ll find the time or money for all these, no idea, but thanks (I think) for sharing your TBR stack.
“The Embroidered Book” for me.
I’m very eager to read Seasonal Fears! Middlegame was amazing!
“The Middling Affliction” sounds most interesting.
Janelle Monáe has to be worth a read! Apparently a collection of stories from her concept album and film, Dirty Computer.
Thank you for sharing. Those ARCs, that are sent to your house, make it really easy for you to find new books.
I love most of Seanan McGuire’s stuff so that one, and I like Janelle Monae’s music so I bet that’s going to be fun, and I just like the spine and title of the Embrodered Book.
I love that in the middle of all this awesome fiction you have Sharon’s birdwatching book!!
I need to catch up on Seanan McGuire’s work.
