Welcome to the Stuck in a Good Book Giveaway Hop, hosted by Stuck in Books!
So, what books have you been stuck in lately? Books are like potato chips, you can’t read, or love, just one.
Most recently, the book I got seriously stuck in was Provenance by Ann Leckie. I couldn’t put it down, and was sneaking into the bathroom at work to read just a few more pages off my iPhone. And I don’t really like reading on my iPhone. I just know this book is going to be on next year’s Hugo ballot, because I can’t imagine I’ll be the only person nominating it.
As always, there are just a couple of books that have gone above and beyond an A grade right up into A+. One of those for me, this year, was The Guns Above by Robyn Bennis, which was just a perfect blend of steampunk, heroine’s journey, military sf and outright snark. I just loved this one from beginning to end, and really, really hope its the beginning of a series.
On the romance front, this year’s hands-down winner was Ilona Andrews Hidden Legacy series. Even though I didn’t remember reading the first book, Burn for Me, several years ago, as soon as I picked up Wildfire I was right back in the thick of it. Wildfire and the series finale, White Hot, completely sucked me in and left me with one hell of a book hangover.
Last but very definitely not least, Embrace the Romance, Pets in Space 2. This is a huge collection of science fiction romance novellas, and so far, all the ones I’ve read have been awesome. But there is so much to love in this book that I still have plenty left to get lost in.
