Book Mail for the week ending February 4, 2017

This week’s book mail was all requests for upcoming reviews.

The Edge of the Abyss is the sequel to Emily Skrutskie’s The Abyss Surrounds Us. The best summary: lesbian pirates who tame sea monsters. While the book is (I think) officially a YA title, it does read a bit older — more in the realm of New Adult speculative fiction romance.

Anyway, while my colleague Emily is writing the official Girls in Capes review for Edge, we’re going to be discussing it at one of our ClexaCon panels. (Check out my recent post for more information.) I’m really excited — I really liked The Abyss Surrounds Us, even though the ending made me so angry I wanted to punch everything in arm’s reach, so I’m hoping it’ll give me a satisfying ending.

Winter of the Gods is also a sequel, this time to The Immortals by Jordanna Max Brodsky. A tale of the former Greek goddess Artemis in contemporary New York, The Immortals was one of my review titles at Girls in Capes last year.

I felt The Immortals wrapped up the story very well, so I’m curious to see what’s next for Selene/Artemis in Winter of the Gods.

I’ll be squeezing these in somewhere between reviewing last-minute yuri anime and other SF/F titles for the ClexaCon panel.

You can check out my progress on this year’s 100 Books Challenge and let me know what books you’ve read so far. I can’t wait to hear about what you’re reading!
