So far so good…


Every Tuesday over at the  The Broke and Bookish we all get to look at a particular topic for discussion and use various (or more to the point ten) examples to demonstrate that particular topic.  The topic this week is:

    Sadly I haven’t read any of these yet, but the cover of City of Blades is very compelling. My TTT

      It’s a really good book – I do really like Robert Bennett and have liked all his books so far.

    I just reviewed Every Heart a Doorway on my blog yesterday and if I hadn’t drafted today’s TTT before then, I would have added it. I absolutely loved it and I was so thrilled yesterday when I learned there would be more in this series. I still don’t know why I haven’t read Jane Steele yet. Too many books I guess. Thanks for sharing a great list!

    • @lynnsbooks

      I’m so pleased that there will be more from EHaD – thanks so much for that excellent news. You’ve made my night.
      Jane Steele was brilliant – an unexpected book, one that I didn’t request but just turned up and I loved it. I hope you give it a shot – would love to know your thoughts.

    We have a couple of the same books, and I LOVED Company Town but I read it too late to make my list. Really curious to read Jane Steele.

    • @lynnsbooks

      I loved Jane Steele, very much out of character for what I tend to read these days but sometimes books just really work – and this is one of those books for me.

    I’ve read great reviews about Jane Steele, yours included. 🙂

    • @lynnsbooks

      I loved that book. Loved it. Completely outside of what I predominantly read these days but I like to mix it up every now and again.

    Monstrous Little Tales sounds like a fun time. I read City of Stairs a while back, but stopped halfway due to life, and I haven’t got back yet, but I’ll definitely restart it soon. Looking forward to read City of Blades too.

    • @lynnsbooks

      I do love Robert Bennett so this series worked out well for me so far – the second is very different from the first and quite a few people prefer it.
      I loved the Monstrous book, even though this is a book of short stories it has a theme that runs throughout and it’s just really entertaining.

    OMG! I can not believe I have bought yet Robert Jackson Bennet’s books! I have the first one on this series on my list!
    You have pretty good books in your list. Different than everyone else’s
    I was getting tired to see the same books in almost every list!

    I haven’t read any of these. I haven’t read any 2016 release at all.I bought some but they are still in my bookshelves.
    Nice list!
    My TTT.

    • @lynnsbooks

      I know – I have so many books waiting to be read and I’m getting very behind! I need a couple of free months to catch up.

    I am excited to read Jane Steele and Monstrous Little Voices 🙂

    • @lynnsbooks

      Both are so good – I really think you will love them.
      Lynn 😀

    Not at all surprised to see a Mark Lawrence take the #1 spot 🙂 Though, now that that series is complete, I suppose it is time for pick up the books and binge read it – like I did The Broken Empire.

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yes – it is absolutely time to do that very thing! This series is brilliant.
      Lynn 😀

    I see three of my five star books this year on your list (Wheel of Osheim, The Immortals, City of Blades) as well as another one that I really liked (Company Town). Makes me very curious about the rest, since we have pretty similar tastes. That Tom Lloyd book needs a US release date, like yesterday. And just added Jane Steele to my TBR!

    • @lynnsbooks

      I think there have been some great books so far this year. I hope you get a chance to pick up Jane Steele – although it isn’t spec fiction I really enjoyed it.
      Lynn 😀

    This is a mighty list! Woot! I wanna read all of ’em! But I gotta tell you, that “Company Town” cover is so striking. Whenever I see it, it always really sticks to my eyesight, know what I mean?

    • @lynnsbooks

      The Company Town cover is brilliant I think. And the content is just as good. Hope you pick up a copy.
      Lynn 😀

    Saints Blood by Sebastian De Castellan was amazing if you get the chance to read it.

    • @lynnsbooks

      I have read the first and really enjoyed it – I just need to catch up!!
      Lynn 😀
