Anissa Finally I can get An Unwanted Guest! I never got an ARC & have stayed away from all spoilers so today is my day! I will be buying! Can't wait!

And Google just alerted me on my phone that the next Murderbot installment drops today as well!


message 2: by Cindy (new)

Cindy I have Catwoman on the way to me as of yesterday! There are a few others I have my eye on here as well. Maeve in America, Rust & Stardust, and Fly Girls all interest me.

Sana I'm looking forward to reading Nicky Drayden's Temper and the third murderbot novella, Rogue Protocol. Both released today as well so SFF FTW!

Tonya Luttrull (Rustic Book Reviews) The publishing company sent me a copy of Rust & Stardust last week. I have not had a chance to pick it up. I will now grab this on audio and give it a listen.

Cassie Fischer I'm excited for Laurell K Hamilton's "Serpentine"! It's in my mailbox waiting for me to get it in 4 hours.


message 7: by Kristen (new)

Kristen None of these are tickling my fancy.


message 8: by Alexandria (new)

Alexandria Hicks Some of these books look good, wish I could go to the bookstore today.


message 9: by Yaaresse (new)

Yaaresse I've been waiting impatiently for Dopesick. While I'm sure the content is going to be depressing and infuriating, I know the writing will be good. Macy's Factory Man and Truevine were both excellent.

And I'm willing to give Fly Girls a look although this formula of "a handful of women whose story has never been told before" is becoming cliche and more of a marketing ploy than good history writing. Still, glad to see some non-fiction showing up on the list.


message 10: by Frank (new)

Frank Y'all enjoy your SJM, the only book out today I really want is These Rebel Waves (Stream Raiders, #1) by Sara Raasch


message 11: by Samir (new)

Samir Jadid An unwanted guest by shari lapena, seems like an interesting book to read.

Post your address and you'll soon have a free unwanted guest, I'm sure.

Elaine Mahoney Just bought Dopesick after reading Factory Man. Great book!


message 14: by Lorraine (new)

Lorraine Yes! Finally women are getting the credit that is long overdue as in Fly Girls!
