Blackwing is a book I heard about on Twitter, a trend I’m noticing more and more for myself. I was curious about it, but not hugely compelled to seek it out. I requested a copy when I saw it go up on NetGalley, and I’m so glad I did. Blackwing was a huge surprise for me, and Ed McDonald has quickly became a new favorite author.
I recently read and reviewed Ninefox Gambit, the first in the Machineries of Empire trilogy. It had been getting great press, was nominated for some of the top honours in science fiction, and has a stunning cover. I picked it up despite it not being my usual taste in sci-fi
The Never King is the newest novel from Mark Charan Newton, who is writing under the pseudonym James Abbott. I hadn't read any of Newton's books before diving into this one, but was intrigued nonetheless.
I absolutely adore Neil Gaiman and snapped up a copy of this book in hardback within a month of publication. I'm a huge fan of mythology, but know so little about Norse mythology. This is a great introduction to the world of Thor, Loki, Odin, and the whole host of gods and goddesses that inhabit Asgard that have becoming more and more mainstream.
The first Instagram Sunday of May! It's a gorgeous day and there are stacks of books waiting to be photographed.
