I was in need of a new way to showcase titles, and finally decided that My Book Haul seems like a good fit. I like giving books a little special attention as sometimes it can be awhile before I'm able to review them. Sad to say, but some get put on the shelf and gather a little dust before I'm able to give them the love they deserve. I've included links to Goodreads if you want more information on the books.
I try to stay away from the temptation that is NetGalley, but I was curious to see the new titles available. This one sounded interesting and I put in a request without noticing that it was a Disney book. They don't usually approve bloggers, so I was very excited when my request was approved!
Poison by Bridget Zinn
Sixteen-year-old Kyra, a highly-skilled potions master, is the only one who knows her kingdom is on the verge of destruction - which means she’s the only one who can save it. Faced with no other choice, Kyra decides to do what she does best: poison the kingdom’s future ruler, who also happens to be her former best friend. But, for the first time ever, her poisoned dart . . . misses. (Goodreads)
Another NetGalley title. See why I don't go on very often? I see too many titles I can't resist! And I was only on for a couple of minutes!
Two and Twenty Dark Tales anthology
In this anthology, 20 authors explore the dark and hidden meanings behind some of the most beloved Mother Goose nursery rhymes through short story retellings. The dark twists on classic tales range from exploring whether Jack truly fell or if Jill pushed him instead to why Humpty Dumpty, fragile and alone, sat atop so high of a wall. The authors include Nina Berry, Sarwat Chadda, Leigh Fallon, Gretchen McNeil, and Suzanne Young. (Goodreads)
As a former call center gal, I really enjoyed Lisa's first book "Confessions of a Gal Center Gal" and was happy to get the opportunity to review her latest!
She's the Boss by Lisa Lim
The Devil Wears Prada meets The Office. Twenty-something Karsynn is now a boss but she's not so much The Devil Wears Prada as she is The Angel Wears Payless. With a brighter career, things should be going better for Karsynn, right? Wrong. (Goodreads)
