The Leaning Pile of Books

This week I am hoping to get up a review of Feed by Mira Grant, which is about halfway written. After that there is only one book left to review, Naamah's Kiss by Jacqueline Carey, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I might get caught up over this next week.

This week I received one book in the mail that I am very excited about reading.

An Artificial Night by Seanan McGuire

The third book in the October Daye series will be released on September 7. The second book was released earlier this year, and I really enjoyed it so I'm looking forward to reading this one. Rosemary and Rue was good, and A Local Habitation was even better so I'm eager to see if this one continues the trend (although I'll be pretty happy if I just like it as much as A Local Habitation). Faery, a tough but not even close to all-powerful heroine and Tybalt King of Cats... I may have to read this one before September.

Experience the thrill of the hunt in the third October Daye urban fantasy novel.

October "Toby" Daye is a changeling-half human and half fae-and the only one who has earned knighthood. Now she must take on a nightmarish new challenge. Someone is stealing the children of the fae as well as mortal children, and all signs point to Blind Michael. Toby has no choice but to track the villain down-even when there are only three magical roads by which to reach Blind Michael's realm, home of the Wild Hunt-and no road may be taken more than once. If Toby cannot escape with the children, she will fall prey to the Wild Hunt and Blind Michael's inescapable power.

Orannia - I know the feeling - there are so many books I think that about. If only I could read faster...

Janicu - They are good, aren't they? I'm actually considering reading this one next even though I can't put up a review of it for a while.
