This list just plain got out of hand.
There’s a temptation every week, one that I often give in to, to make sure that the list hits an odd number. Odd numbers seem to make the graphic come out better. I have occasionally picked up an additional book (or three) just to make the picture look good. I have also occasionally cut the list off at a good number, oh, say, 11, and started pushing anything over that to the following week. It all caught up with me this week. Did it ever!
There are a couple of interesting books on this list, even if they are interesting for different reasons. I’ve reviewed the Bloodbound series over at The Book Pushers with my friend Ericka. We both loved the first book, The Bloodbound, but had mixed to terrible feelings about the second book, The Bloodforged. I think we picked up The Bloodsworn because we can’t turn our eyes away from the trainwreck. Which we hope isn’t nearly as catastrophic as we both fear.
I’ve already read and reviewed Penric and the Shaman. I loved Penric’s Demon last year, and couldn’t wait to dive into this yummy little confection. And after having so much fun with Fatal Affair, now I’m collecting the set. Mostly from libraries, but I’ll have to buy a few.
