Happy “where’d all my money go?” new release Tuesday, everyone!
As you know, the most exciting day of the week in this community is the day that follows the one we all dread (Mondays for the nope) and today we’re going to highlight some of the new books chipping away at our bank accounts — but each one is so worth it.
WHEN YOU SEE ME, book eleven in the Detective D.D Warren series by Lisa Gardner, feels like a direct continuation to book ten. This isn’t one of those mystery/procedural series I think you can just jump into but Gardner always does enough catch-up on backstory that you could probably stumble along without too many questions. This wasn’t Hollis’ favourite of the series but she still enjoyed reuniting with all the familiar faces. Expect her full review tomorrow!
SMAILHOLM by C.L. Williams is a middle grade fantasy that really emulates the vibes of The Hobbit. It’s set in historical Scotland and it tells the story of Wynn, a girl entering her teens who is a lady-to-be from Smailholm tower. She has a secret, she visits a hidden village where the people are very small. The story has mystery and a range of beings to find out about. This was an enjoyable read and Micky’s review will be coming this week.
WHITEOUT by Adriana Anders brings a slice of chalk and cheese from us both as we double reviewed this. One of us loved it, the other not so much. It is set in the Antarctic with a grouchy professor/scientist and a peppy chef at the base station. It’s a fast-paced romantic suspense with lots of story behind it. Look out for our contrasting review.
IN RESTLESS DREAMS by Wren Handman is a YA fae-specific fantasy featuring a young girl, recently relocated to a new city, and a new school, who discovers she holds powers that can remake the very fabric of Fairy by just dreaming up something new.
