2007 Releases

I realized recently that I have only read three books this year that were released this year (The Name of the Wind, Ysabel, and The Twelve Kingdoms: Sea of Shadows). To remedy this situation, I recently ordered the following:

Red Seas Under Red Skies by Scott Lynch (#2 in the Gentleman Bastard sequence)
The Children of Hurin by J.R.R. Tolkien
Flesh and Spirit by Carol Berg (#1 in The Lighthouse Duology)

Hopefully later this year I'll be able to get some more new releases. I'm looking forward to reading Acacia by David Anthony Durham and The Blade Itself by Joe Abercrombie and hope to get at least those two this year.

So at some point I should get more reviews of newer books up here.

I finished Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal by Christopher Moore Sunday night so I'm hoping to get a review of that up here soon (unfortunately, work usually gets in the way of that during the week). I was pleasantly surprised by it - it was better than I was expecting it to be.

While I'm waiting for my Amazon order of 2007 releases to get here, I'm reading another older novel - Tigana by Guy Gavriel Kay.

Hey Kristin, I want to send you my copy of Crystal Rain, but I don't have your address. Could you email me at skywalker1969@comcast.net so I can send it to you?
