The View From Monday - August 19, 2013

Happy Monday! I hope everyone is enjoying the last couple of weeks of summer. I've been spending a lot of time repairing my gardens which had been neglected for a couple of years. They look good though despite my neglect.

I'm reading two books right now. The first Bobby Dollar novel by Tad Williams, The Dirty Streets of Heaven, so that I can read the second, Happy Hour in Hell, for review. I can not read books out of order! So far I'm enjoying the first novel.

I'm also reading The Lost Prince by Edward Lazellari. This is the second novel in his Guardians of Aandor series. I have to admit I was a bit concerned about reading it because I loved the first novel, Awakenings. I've been waiting a while for The Lost Prince to come out. It will be published tomorrow. Fortunately my trepidation was unfounded as I am loving the novel... so far.

There is one debut this week - The Bone Season (Scion 1) by Samantha Shannon. I'll be reading that in the next couple of days as well. Who needs sleep?

And from formerly featured Debut Author Challenge Authors:

Khan of Mars by Stephen Blackmoore.  You should also read Dead Things by Stephen. It was published in February 2013. It's a terrific story with a very memorable cast of characters.

Quick Fix (In a Fix 2) by Linda Grimes;


The Lost Prince (Guardians of Aandor 2) by Edward Lazellari.

  1. I'll be reading "The Dirty Streets of Heaven" next week, as part of an upcoming blog tour, and from everything I've heard about it, I think I'm going to love it!
