With so many exciting books coming out this year, the felines thought it would be fun to do a monthly post showcasing titles that they are anxious to get their paws on. Here are their picks for this month. 🐱
Sara’s Choice: Maplecroft (The Borden Dispatches #1) by Cherie Priest
Expected publication: September 2nd 2014 by Roc Trade
Lizzie Borden took an axe and gave her mother forty whacks; and when she saw what she had done, she gave her father forty-one….
The people of Fall River, Massachusetts, fear me. Perhaps rightfully so. I remain a suspect in the brutal deaths of my father and his second wife despite the verdict of innocence at my trial. With our inheritance, my sister, Emma, and I have taken up residence in Maplecroft, a mansion near the sea and far from gossip and scrutiny.
But it is not far enough from the affliction that possessed my parents. Their characters, their very souls, were consumed from within by something that left malevolent entities in their place. It originates from the ocean’s depths, plaguing the populace with tides of nightmares and madness.
This evil cannot hide from me. No matter what guise it assumes, I will be waiting for it. With an axe.
Willow’s Choice: The Winter Long (October Daye #8) by Seanan McGuire
Expected publication: September 2nd 2014 by DAW
Toby thought she understood her own past; she thought she knew the score.
She was wrong.
It’s time to learn the truth.
