First, thanks to the venerable James Rollins who stopped by ye old Leaf to leave a comment and update us all that there are excerpts of his upcoming release, The Devil Colony (Sigma Book 6)! I’ve been a fan of Rollins’ adventure novels for quite some time so it’s an honor to have him leave a note. The Devil Colony was originally scheduled for release last summer, but was pushed back to this June. Find the excerpts on his website here.
Second, it’s been SO long since I’ve done a WWW (hosted at Should Be Reading). I got a few goodies in the mail recently though so decided I would share.
To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions:
What are you currently reading?
I’m FINALLY reading The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larssen. I’m probably one of the last bookworms on the planet to pick up this series, but I just never had time for it until now. I’m definitely enjoying it so far!
What did you recently finish reading?
The Ghost Orchid by one of my faves, Carol Goodman. This was a bit weird for me in comparison to the other Goodman works that I’ve read. Full review should be up shortly so check back.
What do you think you’ll read next?
I haven’t been able to take any ARCs lately due to the work for Rozlyn Press picking up, but when I received an email from Helen Phillips offering an advance look at her upcoming release And Yet They Were Happy, I was too intrigued to say no. here’s the synopsis from Helen’s website:
The surreal fables of And Yet They Were Happy chronicle the adventures large and small of a young couple setting out to build a life in an unstable world. It’s a world haunted by monsters, a world plagued by natural disasters, a world on the verge of collapse–but also a place of transformation, wonder, and delight, peopled by the likes of Noah, Eve, Bob Dylan, the Virgin Mary, Jack Kerouac, Anne Frank, and a cast of fairytale creatures. Hovering between reality and fantasy, autobiography and mythology, whimsy and darkness, And Yet They Were Happy is a journey through a universe at once peculiar and familiar.
