At the beginning of last year I listed out my anticipated releases for 2016. Here’s my final round-up on those releases, which ones I read, and what I thought of them. Links lead to my reviews where possible.
To buy/read when out:
This one got 3.5 cups of tea from me. I had read most of the short stories before and enjoyed them as providing a little more depth to the world.
I didn’t get this one read, but I do have it lined up on the kindle from the library–here I come!
4.5 cups of tea. Everything comes full circle and I love this series.
3 cups of tea. Fine, but got me excited for the final book, which I guess is the point of it.
4 cups of tea. This story got me so excited for the new book!
3.5-4 cups of tea. Good and interesting, but I’m not sure if I was missing something. . .
3.5 cups of tea. Fine, but very mixed results.
4+ cups of tea. I loved this one!
4.5-5 cups of tea. I adore this series.
5 cups of tea. This series is wonderful. I am SO ready for the final book.
5 cups of tea. AMAZING. Period.
3.5 cups of tea. A little unmemorable, but alright.
4.5 cups of tea. I think I need to re-read this series and this book. I can’t quite decide what I thought of the ending.
4-4.5 cups of tea. I really like this new series. It’s very different from London Steampunk, but still dark and dingy and good.
4 cups of tea. I don’t even have a thing for Mad Max, but I do now.
3 cups of tea. This was solid, but it just didn’t wow me like the first book, and I found the whole thing a little dull.
4 cups of tea. Not quite as good as the second book, but a solid close to a seriously imaginative series.
3 cups of tea. Better than the first in the Custard Protocol, but this series just does not draw me in and I find that I have such a hard time connecting with Prudence.
4 cups of tea. SO good! This series is quickly on to become one of my new faves.
4.5-5 cups of tea. Exactly what I wanted from a new series in this world. So good. The only downside, is that it feels very closely hitched to the next book, rather than self-encompassing. But, I’m ok with that!
4-4.5 cups of tea. Well-written and grounded-ly imaginative as MRK always is.
4 cups of tea. Lovely as ever, but it didn’t seem to push the story forward much, so I’m still waiting for the next one with baited breath.
4 cups of tea. This was solidly good, and I really loved some parts, but it just didn’t win me over like the previous book did.
5 cups of tea. This art is beautiful and I love seeing the flying Ford Anglia on the cover.
3.5-4 cups of tea. Good, but it took me some work to get through it.
Romancing the Inventor by Gail Carriger – Nov 1 – ebook from the Gail!
4.5-5 cups of tea, I loved it!
Blood for Blood by Ryan Graudin – November 1 – Libs
I didn’t get to this one either. Reading about Nazis taking over the world was pretty hard pill to swallow after the election, so I’m planning to come back to this one later.
