Weekly Roundup #35

weeklyru_16

My ‘Weekly Roundup’ is where I share the books I have received in the past week, whether bought, gifted, borrowed etc.

Bought (ebook)

Partials by Dan Wells

Netgalley

I seriously, seriously suck at this not requesting everything from Netgalley thing…

Sheltered Volume 1 by Ed Brisson & John Christmas Red Sonja Volume 1: Queen of Plagues by Gail Simone & Walter Geovanni Mass Effect: Foundation by Mac Walters The Troop by Nick Cutter After the Silence by Jake Woodhouse The Unseemly Education of Anne Merchant

  • Sheltered Volume One by Ed Brisson & John Christmas – I like dystopia. I like graphic novels. Ergo, I will probably like this.
  • Red Sonja Volume One: Queen of Plagues by Gail Simone & Walter Geovanni – apparently a reimagining/reboot of the original character, which I know nothing about. But graphic novels! Swords and sorcery! Yay!
  • Mass Effect: Foundation by Mac Walters – if you know me, you know I’m a little bit obsessed with Mass Effect, and read all the books based on the series that I can get my hands on, despite them not often being very good. Well I’ve actually already read this one and it’s possibly the best so far – review to come shortly.
  • The Troop by Nick Cutter – this sounds like a super creepy version of Lord of the Flies, which I had to read in school and really enjoyed. When I got approved for this book I went to download it and found out it had been archived, which puzzled me – but then it appeared back on the site so luckily my ratio shouldn’t get messed up (or… any more messed up…)
  • After the Silence by Jake Woodhouse – I wanted to read more books set in the Netherlands, so here we are! This might not be the best book to read though, as it’s about murders…
  • The Unseemly Education of Anne Merchant by Joanna Wiebe – this has a very strange mix of DNFs and five star reviews on Goodreads… I’ll just have to read it myself and find out!

What new reads do you have this week?

  1. I just bought his is Where I Leave you online and am waiting for it to arrive. I am also debating an e-reader (I only read physical books right now). What do you use and would you recommend it?

    1. It certainly is, then the only way to know what it’s really like is to read it yourself! =D

      That is the problem with the original Kindle. I also sometimes had problems with screen glare on that one which was frustrating.

  2. Partials was one of my favorite YA reads last year! I found it to be a refreshing take on the sometimes too-common dystopian trend. Looking forward to your review!
