Recap: June 2013

I’ve kind of wandered away from contemporary, and I’ve actually been trying to get back into horror. Of course, it hasn’t quite worked that well. I got started with Joe Hill’s NOS4A2 and had to put it on hold, because I just wasn’t feeling the horror at the time. Of course, there are horror books that I’m dying to get my hands on…

Anyway:

I read 8 books in June.

Other news:

Just this past week, there was a scandal regarding some plagarism (again). This time, “author” Jordin Williams blatantly copied sections of both Easy by Tammara Webber and Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire. Dear Author has a pretty good write-up about it, and a few others have been kind enough to also do write-ups since then.
You can also find a crap-ton more links, info, and more on the page for the “book”, Amazingly Broken, which also apparently has ties to a Twilight fanfiction? Who knew?

Upcoming in the next few months:

–Take Me Back by Kelli Maine (e-arc review)
–The Iron Knight by Julie Kagawa
–Lexicon by Max Barry (e-arc review)
–The Weight of Souls by Bryony Pearce (e-arc review)
–The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty (e-arc review)
–Parasite by Mira Grant (e-arc review)
–Viral Nation by Shaunta Grimes (e-arc review)
–The Silver Chain by Primula Bond (e-arc review)
–The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black (e-arc review)
–The Only Exception by Magan Vernon (e-arc review)
–The Companions by RA Salvatore (e-arc review)
–The Godborn by Paul S Kemp (e-arc review)

So I’m breaking my own rule about not reviewing epic fantasy with The Companions and The Godborn. Mostly, it’s because I really like RA Salvatore.
