Okay, so I went a little crazy and requested a whole bunch of galleys/ARCs on Netgalley (I only did it ’cause I didn’t think I’d get them all). I was luckily granted access to seven titles.
Here is what I’ll be reading and reviewing in February:
Seeker by Arwen Elys Dalton
Random House Children’/Delacorte
Pub DateFeb 10 2015
“Quin Kincaid has been put through years of brutal training for what she thinks is the noble purpose of becoming a revered ‘Seeker’.
Only when it’s too late does she discover she will be using her new-found knowledge and training to become an assassin. Quin’s new role will take her around the globe, from a remote estate in Scotland to a bustling, futuristic Hong Kong where the past she thought she had escaped will finally catch up with her.” -via Goodreads
K-9 (Knightly and Son series) by Rohan Gavin
Bloomsbury USA Children
Pub Date Feb 17 2015
“Darkus Knightley, tweed-wearing, mega-brained, thoroughly logical 13-year-old investigator of the weird, was just getting used to having his dad back in his life. Then Alan Knightley went off-radar, again, leaving Darkus with a traumatised ex-bomb-disposal dog as his only partner in crime-solving. Now things are getting even stranger. Family pets are being savaged by a beast at a top London beauty spot. Policemen have been tracked and attacked by a particularly aggressive canine. And two curiously alert hounds seem to be watching Darkus’s house. No one is using the word werewolf – yet – but as the full moon approaches, it doesn’t take Sherlock Holmes to work out that someone or something sinister is messing with the minds of London’s dog population. A mysterious canine conspiracy is howling for the attention of Knightley & Son . . .Criminally good detective adventure, perfect for fans of Sherlock and sharp-minded sleuths of all shapes and sizes . . .” -via Goodreads
I’m about three or four chapters into Seeker and it’s okay. I’m confused about some of the history but hopefully that’ll get cleared up.
I’ve wanted to read Knightly and Son for a while now, so I’ll need to get on it if I’m to understand what’s going on in K-9.
The other titles I received access to, but will be reading later on, include:
Denton Little’s Deathdate by Lance Rubin
We Should All Be Feminists by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
The Last Flight of Poxl West by Daniel Torday
Moon at Nine by Deborah Ellis
The Little Paris Bookshop by Nina George
