I haven’t been reading many ARCs or egalleys lately, but here are a couple books I’m really excited about (and highly recommend).
- The Age of Perpetual Light by Josh Weil (Sept 12) - This collection of short stories spans centuries and gives the reader something to think about. Recommended for readers of realistic fiction.
- Louise Thompson Patterson: A Life of Struggle for Justice by Keith Gilyard (Oct 5th) - An early civil rights activist, Louise Thompson Patterson led a fascinating life and began the civil rights movement in the 1940’s. This biography is well-written and lends more understanding to the woman and the period she was born into. Recommended for activist readers and historians.
- Oathbringer by Brandon Sanderson (Nov 14th) - The third book in the Stormlight Archives continues the story of Shallan, Kaladin, Adolin, and Dalinar as they discover more about the radiants and come to terms with powers beyond their control. Recommended for fantasy readers.
- The Nine by Tracy Townsend (Nov 14th) - This dark fantasy book has received fantastic reviews and the author interview at Fantasy Lit is one of the best I've read in a long time. With a mix of steampunk and religion (apparently including God's lab notes), this book sounds like it will be an excellent addition to the fantasy genre and I can't wait to get my hands on it.
