Physical Review Copies:

48211702. sy475

  • The Fearing #3: Air & Dust — John F.D. Taff [adult horror novella]
    • I’ve still gotta pick up #2, but I loved the first one so much that I’m sure I’ll love both of the next 2 installments! I’ll probably do a 2-for-1 review of them, unless anyone would rather me split them up.

Digital Review Copies:

  • Dreams of Lake Drukka / Exhumation — Mike Thorn [adult horror short story combo]
    • I loved Mike’s Darkest Hours collection so much that, when he reached out to me about this short story duo, I had to say yes! I’m reading it this weekend and then should have a special post coming for you guys later this month so keep an eye out!
  • Dead Meat: Day 1 — Nick Clausen [YA horror novella]
    • I loved Nick’s Human Flesh a little while back, so I was pretty excited to join his ARC review team this week and I really can’t wait to read this new series of his! It’s about zombies. 😀

Kindle Purchases/Freebies:

40623564. sy475

  • Fix Her Up — Tessa Bailey [adult romance]
    • After months of waiting to see if I could get this from the library, I finally got tired of waiting and bought it on my kindle a few nights ago. ?

Physical Purchases & Gifts:

  • Assassin’s Apprentice (Illustrated Edition) — Robin Hobb [adult fantasy; pre-order]
