Random News And Goings-On
Last weekend was the Baltimore Book Festival. I had SUCH a fun time, even though on Saturday I was still feeling a little tired and all from last Thursday’s trip to the ER. Anywho, the programming was fantastic, as perusual. Thanks much to Sarah Pinsker and Kellan Szpara for such fantastic panel topics and working out a great schedule. ❤ Also, I finally got to meet Crystal from Goddess in the Stacks! It was fun talking to her even though we didn’t get a ton of time, the programing schedule was so tight.
Yesterday was finally a day where I could relax a little bit even though I had some things to do to get the house ready for company today (it’s my book club meeting). It was nice to have at least a little bit of down time! I’m looking forward to more downtime later in the month as I don’t really have many plans other than to go out to dinner with my husband’s family for Thanksgiving. It’s also my husband’s birthday at the end of the month so I’m sure we’ll do something to celebrate that. But most of my really heavy plans are done for the month, phew! 🙂 Good thing since I started that whole book cataloging project, hah.
Other things I’m doing this month – Street Team event for The Hanged Man promo event. I’ll be having some posts upcoming on my instagram and twitter, hopefully starting this week if I can get caught up on some other things first. I’m also doing the Dragons of Autumn Twilight Readalong hosted by Jason from Off The TBR. It’s been fun so far and some good discussion over in the goodreads group for it. Can’t wait to get further into the book. 🙂
New Book Arrivals at Way Too Fantasy
I did get some books recently! First stack is from the Baltimore Book Fest.
- Hope and Red by Jon Skovron
- The Labyrinth’s Archivist by Day Al-Mohamed
- The Fever King by Victoria Lee
The second stack is some bought books along with two ARCs.
- The Silent Companions by Larua Percell
- Call Down the Hawk by Maggie Stiefvater (special OwlCrate edition)
- Borne by Jeff Vandermeer
- The Killing Fog by Jeff Wheeler (ARC)
- Now Then and Everywhen by Rysa Walker (ARC)
Thanks much to 47North and Wunderkind PR for the ARCs, looking forward to checking these out.
Only a couple of new ebooks.
- The Fifth Doll by Charlie N. Holmberg (yay sales, can’t resist them)
- Burndive by Karin Lowachee (this actually has brand new cover art but it’s not up on goodreads yet)
Only one new audiobook – also Call Down the Hawk by Maggie Stiefvater! I had to have the audio for this one because I just love the narration by Will Patton.
I spent most of the week catching up on blog hopping (and I’m still a little behind) so unfortunately no posts to share this week but hopefully next week I can get back to this routine! That’s the news for this week, see you next time!

I can’t wait to see what you think of Fever King, and when you’re done I have an ARC of Electric Heir you can borrow! I’m also very curious about the other two books from book fest.
Based off of what I’ve heard I think I’m going to love it. It will probably be the first book I read after I’m done my Autumn TBR lol. Thank you! Appreciate it. 🙂
Hopefully will get to them all some time next month. 🙂
I’m glad you had a good time at the festival! I can’t wait to see what you think of all of these!
Thanks! Hopefully I’ll get to them soon. 🙂
I’ve owned the ebook version of Hope and Red for a couple of years now. I really need to get to that.
I met the author this year at a local convention and he’s super nice! I was telling my husband while at the book festival so he bought the book for me. It looks interesting!
Looks like you have some great books lined up! I’m plowing through novellas (of course), getting ready for another writing project, and also reading as many westerns as I can get my hands on. Recovering from pneumonia has left me with a lot of time on my hands.
I guess that’s one good thing about being sick? Glad you’re feeling better by the way. I’ve been reading more novellas lately too, I’m really digging the ones Tor.com publishing is putting out. Good luck with the writing!
Oh that book festival looks awesome!! I attended my first book festival this year and enjoyed it very much. I’ll be curious to see what you think of Wheeler’s new One. I enjoyed his King’s poisoner series and then haven’t had the heart to pick up his other books.
I think this is my 5th year going to our local book fest, it’s a great event, I enjoy it a lot. Glad you like yours too!
I haven’t yet read anything by Wheeler so this will be my first one. Glad for know you enjoyed something by him as I’m not familiar with his work yet. 🙂
I did! I read all 6 in that series, still have a novella or two to read but I loved them all.
THE FEVER KING!!!! Yessss I love that book so damn much I hope you enjoy it!
Thanks, I’m so excited to read it! I’m in the process of trying to set up Victoria with an AMA over on r/fantasy for when the sequel releases, I gotta hurry up and read this before then lol!
Ohh, how was your book club meet up?
It was great! We actually had a fantastic discussion about the book and then we played board games. Our next book is Dune which I am happy to reread because it’s been about 20 years lol. 🙂
