Odds 'n ends over the week about books and reading that caught my eye. You've probably seen some/most/all of them, but just in case:

    This Week's New Releases I'm Excited About and/or You'll Probably See Here Soon:
  • A Mint Condition Corpse by Duncan MacMaster -- a geek-centric mystery. Okay. I'll bite. From Fahrenheit Press, who else?
  • The Last Star by Rick Yancey -- Loved The 5th Wave, was less into the sequel -- but am really looking forward to this.
  • Dietland by Sarai Walker -- this looks fun. " Part coming-of-age story, part revenge fantasy, Dietland is a bold, original, and funny debut novel that takes on the beauty industry, gender inequality, and our weight loss obsession—from the inside out, and with fists flying." Check out the trailer.
  • Dark Run by Mike Brooks -- a space opera about smugglers, con artists and thiefs. Sounds good to me.

Lastly, I'd like to say hi and welcome to Senna and Beth from Hello Beautiful Book Blog for following the blog this week.
