Soul of the Sword

By: Julie Kagawa

Publishes on: June 18th

Just want to give fair warning Soul of the Sword is the sequel to Shadow of the Fox which was one of my favorite reads last year. So there will be spoilers for that book but not this one 🙂

Also I received a copy of Soul of the Sword from Netgalley in exchange for an honest opinion.

My Netgalley Moods

When I first started book blogging I told myself be careful of Netgalley. Don’t get overwhelmed with ARCS. I am a total mood reader and also one of the worst things you can do is give me any kind of reading deadline.

I’ve mostly kept to that and appreciate any ARCs that I do get but my relationship with Netgalley can definitely swing like a pendulum between moods.

Harley and Ivy Meet Betty and Veronica

By: Paul Dini, Marc Adreyko & Laura Braga

Grade: B

Available: September 4th

I actually have, at times, asked myself the same question Betty Cooper asks in this book… What would Harley Quinn do? I like to keep it legal though. 🙂 Still I was amused to see someone else asking the exact same thing!

Not the Place for Paranoia…

Before Mars

Before Mars

By: Emma Newman

Grade: C+

*Netgalley kindly provided me with a copy but that has not impacted my review.

What if they are out to get you? What if they are out to get you even on Mars? I rarely request books from Netgalley but this one just seemed so up my reading alley right now that I had to give it a go. Our main character Anna is a geologist and artist whose sent to the base on Mars in order to paint pretty pictures for her boss to sell. We are thrown into it pretty much from the minute she arrives from her solo flight.
