Tuesdays are media release days generally (books, movies, music).

Clancy None if these appeal to me but it is nice to be kept in the loop when new books come out. The next bunch maybe just my thing who knows.

Are there sci fi releases today? What ones? This is only based on "on the top books Goodreads members can't wait to read, which we measure by how many times a book has been added to Want to Read shelves."

I dislike the title of Daughter of the Siren Queen. I haven't read the first book but it seems like the title gives away a huge plot point in the first book. But, maybe I am wrong in thinking that. Still going to read the books. I own the first one on my kindle and it sounds quite good. :)

Fatima A girl like that ...I am going to read it soon

It is a really big spoiler. Ruined the twist for me to but the first one was still very good.


message 18: by Jenny Baker (new)

Jenny Baker @Jenna & Frank: I was thinking that too about the book title, but I'm going to read it anyway. The first one was so much fun to read! Hopefully, this one is too. :-)
