As usual, TTT is brought to you courtesy of The Broke and the Bookish.
Okay, I’ve recently added a bunch of books to my TBR (but for the record I’m still under 150!). These are the ones I’m most excited to get to (in no particular order).
10 6 Books Recently Added to My TBR
Sharkman by Steve Alten : Excerpt from the Synopsis: “The good news is that the stem cells are curing their rat subjects; the bad news is it alters their DNA so much it kills them. When a promising breakthrough is made, Kwan risks his life and injects himself with the experimental stem cells altering his destiny and the lives of millions in the process.”
I’m a sucker for these type of novels. An absolute sucker. I’ve already requested this from library and cannot wait to get my hands on it!!
The Six by Mark Alpert : Excerpt from the Synopsis: “Along with a select group of other terminally ill teens, Adam becomes one of the Six who have forfeited their bodies to inhabit weaponized robots. But with time running short, the Six must learn to manipulate their new mechanical forms and work together to train for epic combat…before Sigma destroys humanity.”
The muscular dystrophy part caught my eye, as I’ve only ever read one other book that had a character afflicted. Its obvious, though, that beyond serving as a vehicle to give them robot bodies, its not going to play a huge part in the story. But…humans in robot suits? Okay!
Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter : Excerpt from Synopsis: ” She won’t rest until she’s sent every walking corpse back to its grave. Forever. If anyone had told Alice Bell that her entire life would change course between one heartbeat and the next, she would have laughed. From blissful to tragic, innocent to ruined? Please. But that’s all it took. One heartbeat. A blink, a breath, a second, and everything she knew and loved was gone.
Her father was right. The monsters are real.”
I’m familiar with Showalter via her Lords of the Underworld series. I know what I’m getting into with the potential for romance, and I don’t care. Sometimes a girl needs a little romance with her evil!
Meg: Primal Waters by Steve Alten : Excerpt from the Synopsis:” It was the apex predator of all time, the most fearsome creature that ever lived — a 70-foot, 70,000 pound Great White shark. Hundreds of 7-inch serrated teeth filled jaws that could swallow an elephant whole. It could sense its prey miles away, inhaling its scent as it registered the beat of its fluttering heart, and if you ever came close enough to see the monster…it was already too late.”
I’ve already read the first two books in this series, and the second one is one of my favorite mindless reads. The ocean scares me, sharks terrify, so therefore Meg is pretty much a perfect read for me. I want to finish the series!
Krampus the Yule Lord by Brom : Excerpt from Goodreads Synopsis:” I Krampus, Lord of Yule, son of Hel, bloodline of the great Loki, swear to cut your lying tongue from your mouth, your thieving hands from your wrist, and your jolly head from your neck.”
I’ve heard lots of talk about this book, so that, combined with the cover and the fact it was on sale for super cheap definitely put it on my “Read ASAP” list.
Rushed by Brian Harmon : Excerpt from the Synopsis: “Eric can’t remember the recurring dream that keeps waking him in the middle of the night with an overwhelming urge to leave, yet he spends each day feeling as if he desperately needs to be somewhere. With no idea how to cure himself of this odd new compulsion, he decides to let it take its course and go for a drive, hoping that once he proves to himself that there is nowhere to go, he can return to his normal life.”
I’ve actually already started this. It rings a little too strongly of The Stand, but its written interestingly enough that I’m willing to continue it. I’m just bouncing between books like a rabid energizer bunny right now .
Okay so apparently I can’t come up with 10 that I’m really excited to read. Go figure. LMAO. Ah well.
