You know, I hadn't realized how many books I had pre-ordered that had a July 26 publication date until the packages started arriving this week. This was a very big mailbox full of physical books and ebooks that will keep my busy reading for quite a while. Here is what I got:
Dark of the Moon by Tracy Barrett was my Amazon Vine choice this month. I thought a retelling of a Greek myth would be an interesting change of pace for me.
Spell Bound by Kelley Armstrong is the finished copy of a book I read for review a while ago. I had to have it for my Women of the Otherworld collection.
I completed my collection of the Mindhunters series by Kylie Brant when these two books arrived this week.
I was surprised but pleased to read on someone's blog that Felix Francis was continuing the tradition begun by his father Dick Francis and writing a new mystery. I am a huge Dick Francis fan and had to get Dick Francis's Gamble.
Since I loved Hard Spell, I had to get Sympathy for the Devil by Justin Gustainis. I love his urban fantasy and look forward to reading this series.
I have read quite a few of The Hollows books by Kim Harrison and was interested to see what Blood Work was like because it is an original Hollows story done as a graphic novel.
Ghost Story by Jim Butcher is the 13th in the Dresden Files series. This was a bit of a departure because Dresden is dead and is a ghost in this one. There is less physical action but more introspection in this fascinating story.
I didn't neglect my Kindle this week.
I added this series by Jennifer Estep -- Karma Girl, Hot Mama, and Jinx. I thought the blurbs sounded entertaining.
Ilona Andrews recommended Silk is for Seduction by Loretta Chase as a funny and entertaining historical romance. I thought I would add it to my Kindle too.
Happily Never After by Jeaniene Frost is a novella that was originally published in an anthology that I do not own. I like Frost's work and wanted this story too.
That is what I got in my mailbox. What did you get in yours?
