I got my hands on some incredible ARCs this month and I’ll be reviewing them soon. Sometimes I get a little overwhelmed by how many books I need to read each month from ARCs that I get sent, but this month has been slow. Yet, the few books I’ve gotten seem to be of some incredible quality. I’d rather get just a few books that are worth it, than 27 books that are mediocre. Here are a few I’ll be diving into this month!
The first one I plan on reviewing is Artemis by Andy Weir! Weir wrote The Martian, which was really an amazing book to read. It had a really science centered take, yet still managed to keep you guessing from one minute to the next. Because of that, I can’t wait to pick this up today and devour it. I’m hoping Weir is able to enchant me a second time around. I am a bit worried that because Weir’s style was so science based in his debut novel, that this book may not have the pull that his first one had. But, that remains to be seen and I will give Artemis a fair shake, at the very least. Artemis is due for release November 14th, 2017.
The next book I received an ARC of is The Immortalists by Chloe Bejamin. I’ve never read any of Benjamin’s work, though this one seems promising. It’s about four people who are told the day that they will die and explores what people might do or not do with this knowledge. Set in 1969, it isn’t as mystical as I usually like but has enough magic in it to definitely draw me in. The Immortalists will be released on January 9th, 2018.
I was sent an ARC of The Girl in the Tower by Katherine Arden along with these and I’ve already reviewed it here. I was initially worried that having a sequel wouldn’t pan out well for Arden, but after completely tearing through this book, you’ll see how I really felt about it in the review. The release date for this one is December 5th, 2017.
If you want to hear me rant about books in 140 characters or less follow me here on Twitter. I’m bound to say something slightly ridiculous but probably wildly entertaining.
