Waiting on Wednesday is a series that is hosted by Breaking the Spine. Each Wednesday I will present a new book that I am waiting to be released. This is a way to help me to stay current on my favorite authors and to let you know what to expect in 2019 and beyond.
Vigilance by Robert Jackson Bennett is due out soon - on January 29th. If you love dark science fiction then you should really check out this book. Set in the near future, Vigilance takes a look at the impact of television as well as gun rights.
The book is a little less than two hundred pages. You can currently pre-order it for four dollars in Kindle or a lot more in paperback.
The early reviews are very promising, except for the person who was offended by portraying guns as deadly. While I have not read anything by Bennett previously, I think that will change with this book. He has won a lot of awards and seems to have a lot of great books available.
That is my favorite part about this segment of my blog. I get to stay on top of new books, but I also get to find amazing new authors.
Will you check out Vigilance?
My week in review is coming out on Tuesday today. It is one post that I can not write in advance, and I was spending time with my kiddos yesterday.
I had a fairly good reading week. I started with five books left in my January TBR. Then I added another book. There are so many books that I have ready to read, but I started reading Here Then and Now. I requested it through Netgally, not expecting to get approved. When I did I may have done some shouts of joy. The book releases on January 29th, and I wanted to have my review ready.
The only books I managed to finish last week were Brain Food and Batman: Night Walker. I have started The Wheel of Osheim, Amber & Dusk, The Young Elites, and Here and Now and Then.
My review for Brain Food can be found here. I still need to write up my review for Batman, but I will say that it was a five star review for me. I started reading it as soon as I opened the package (I bought the hardcover - it was too pretty not to) and did not pick up another book until I was finished.
I did pretty good at getting reviews posted. Check out the reviews for:
The Liar's Key by Mark Lawrence
The Cruel Prince by Holly Black
Prodigy by Marie Lu
Bound by Mark Lawrence
Becoming Brilliant by Roberta Michnick Goldinkoff and Kathy Hirsh-Pasek
The Wheel of Osheim and Here and Now and Then I am both reading on Kindle. I hope to have at least one, if not both finished by the end of the week. Amber & Dust and The Young Elites are both in paper.
I am having a hard time with Amber & Dust. I have put it down three times so far. I have thought about DNF'ing it, but I have a hard time doing that. Instead, I have been reading 100 pages everytime I finish another book. Then I can put it down again.
I am not sure how I feel about The Young Elites. I love Marie Lu, but I am not as drawn to this book. The writing is great, but the way thoughts are inputted is weird.
The Wheel of Osheim is turning out to be more similar to the second book in the series, then the first. Although, I am enjoying how it is intertwining with The Broken Empire series.
Here and Then and Now is interesting. I am honestly not sure where the story is going, but that is not a bad thing.
