So, every Saturday morning, Rachel and I try to go to our local Barnes and Noble to grab some Starbucks from their cafe and do a bit of writing (or reading, as is the case lately since we’ve swapped manuscripts with each other). The past two times we’ve gone there, however, we got our sugary, caffeinated drinks and a shopping basket to buy books to add to our already sagging bookshelves.
Hey, we needed to spend the rest of those gift cards back from the holidays, right?
This time around, I found the original first novel of Mark Cheverton’s Minecraft series titled Invasion of the Overworld, so I’ll probably read that before The Great Zombie Invasion.
Monster Hunter International by Larry Correia caught my eye also because I’m a gamer — Monster Hunter is the name of a video game series, but this book has nothing to do with it. Nevertheless, the summary seems interesting as it’s about the newest recruit to MHI, a business that hunts down, well, monsters. Zombies, ghosts, werewolves, all that fun stuff.
The third book is Rebel Spring, by Morgan Rhodes, the second book in her Falling Kingdoms series. I had actually read the first book a couple of summers ago and, while I enjoyed it, it wasn’t the type of series that I needed to devour. I figured it was about time to pick up the sequel (you know, because I don’t have enough books to read!), and I’m looking forward to it.
Anyone else starting the new year off with a new haul of books?
