The Ever-Growing Reading List

I've been accumulating a nice collection of eBook ARCs lately, one of which was Jason Gurley's fantastic Eleanor, which I read and reviewed here. It releases on June 27 and is available for pre-order. And, if you preorder, let Jason know and he'll send you a beautiful bonus: The Eleanor Sketches. Gurley has already racked up 90 5-star reviews, and let me tell you, they are dead-on. It's a great, great read. Up next on my reading docket are the following: Othella

zero

heretic

I've already started in on Othella, and I think you're going to want to check this one out. It'll be releasing soon, so keep an eye out for it and check out Therin's blog for updates.

J.S. Collyer's publisher, Dagda Publishing, recently launched a crowdfunding campaign to support her debut sci-fi novel and reached their goal in a single day, which is very good news for everyone! There's still 40 days left to their campaign, so please go check it out. For five bucks, you can pre-order ZERO or throw in a little more and claim some of the other leftover goodies.

The Heretic is another one I've been looking forward to. I found out about this title from Lucas over at Kboards.com and he was generous enough to send a copy out to all of his mailing list subscribers. So, go sign up for that and check out the details on his book here.

Over on the always-expanding TBR front: I picked up the new Veronica Mars eBook, The Thousand Dollar Tan-Line, which follows hot on the heels of the recently released movie (sitting near the top of my to-watch list, once I finish up season two and three...). The Kindle copy is currently on sale for only $2.99, so why the hell not?

I've also been on a bit of a DarkFuse kick. This small independent publishing house puts out some terrific, top-notch horror and dark fiction. They're one of the very few publishers that I really get excited about (even though I only just recently discovered them...). There looks to be a large, talented pool of authors here, with a lot of exciting projects, and I'm hoping to soon dig into their work, both new and old. I recently picked up Alan Leverone's Mr. Midnight, which was on sale not too long ago, When We Fall by Peter Giglio, as well as Tim Curran's Deadlock. Curran's Blackout also sounds really, really promising, and comes out in August. I'm hugely looking forward to that one! I promised myself to find time to explore this author's back-list after reading Dead Sea last year; wicked, terrific fun, that one.

So, what are you reading and what's in your TBR pile? What books have caught your interest lately?
