My first TBR post

I’ve been blog hopping for a while and I always marvel at the wonderful lists I discover on other blogs and I realized I never posted my TBR list. I’ve never done it because honestly, it’s not that impressive. I usually read and review two or three books a month, so it’s nothing to brag about. I try my best to balance family, work, writing and reading.

Such posts are usually made at the beginning of the month, but I missed the start this month, so here goes nothing!

Dark City by Anna Mocikat

book coverWith the help of his human and non-human allies, Colton has accomplished the impossible; he killed the Overlord of the Dark Ones, crippling their offensive – for now. The battle is won, but the war has just begun.

Three weeks later, the nightmarish creatures from another dimension are back. And they’re stronger and more vicious than ever.

If that isn’t bad enough, Colton is suffering from a mysterious, life-threatening illness.

To save him, his friends bring him to the enigmatic Academy- a conglomerate of cyber-enhanced scientists. Here, the shocking truth about Colton’s identity is finally revealed.

Meanwhile, Vincent, a powerful entity disguised as a human soldier, falls for Eurydice, an ice-cold enforcer for the Dark Ones. He must choose which side he’s on. A momentous decision that could destroy the world as we know it…

Fast-paced, action-driven, and cinematic, Dark City takes place in the heart of the eternal war between good and evil, told in a way you’ve never heard before.

I have received an ARC from the author and the book will release on September 17th. My review will be live on release day.

Dark City is the second book in the series after Shadow City, which I have already reviewed here

The Beast and the Bethany by Jack Meggitt-Phillips

book coverLemony Snicket meets Roald Dahl in this riotously funny, deliciously macabre, and highly illustrated tale of a hungry beast, a vain immortal man, and a not-so-charming little girl who doesn’t know she’s about to be eaten.

Beauty comes at a price. And no one knows that better than Ebenezer Tweezer, who has stayed beautiful for 511 years. How, you may wonder? Ebenezer simply has to feed the beast in the attic of his mansion. In return for meals of performing monkeys, statues of Winston Churchill, and the occasional cactus, Ebenezer gets potions that keep him young and beautiful, as well as other presents.

But the beast grows ever greedier with each meal, and one day he announces that he’d like to eat a nice, juicy child next. Ebenezer has never done anything quite this terrible to hold onto his wonderful life. Still, he finds the absolutely snottiest, naughtiest, and most frankly unpleasant child he can and prepares to feed her to the beast.

The child, Bethany, may just be more than Ebenezer bargained for. She’s certainly a really rather rude houseguest, but Ebenezer still finds himself wishing she didn’t have to be gobbled up after all. Could it be Bethany is less meal-worthy and more…friend-worthy?

I received an ARC of this book and I’m reviewing it on September 19 for The Write Reads amazing blog tour. The book will release in December 2020, so keep an eye out for it!

Cynetic Wolf by Matt Ward

It’s 2096, sixty years after ninety percent died from a man-made Bioplague. Humanity has splintered into four unequal subspecies: immortals, cyborgs, enhancers, and subservient half-human, half-animal hybrids.

The world is anything but equal. Hybrids everywhere are suffering, but sixteen-year-old Raek Mekorian, a wolfish with a nose for trouble, doesn’t see an alternative. Except the Resistance, who don’t stand a chance against the world government. His mom always said, “Keep your head down.”

And he does, until his sister is murdered by a pair of cyborgs. Overnight, his simple life is shattered, fracturing the rigid governmental caste as he is thrust into the dangerous world of superhuman hit squads, Resistance uprisings, and secrets better left unsaid.

With only built-in blasters and the advice of a mysterious professor, Raek must navigate crushing betrayal, self-doubt, and a limitless enemy whose evil knows no bounds.

Can Raek unify his people and free them from tyranny? The fate of mankind may rest in his hands.

I received a review copy of this book from the author to participate in the BlogTour organized by Paige aka PopTheButterfly. My review is scheduled for September 23rd.

That’s it, folks!
