Jenny's Books Added February 2015

This has been a bigger month for eBooks than any other format! But first the physical:

Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, read by Tim Robbins (audiobook)
Mountolive by Lawrence Durrell, read by Jack Klaff (audiobook)
Make Room! Make Room! by Harry Harrison, read by (audiobook)
Ms. Marvel Volume 1: No Normal by G. Willow Wilson, art by Adrian Alphona

Here we have three review books from Brilliance and a graphic novel purchase.  I'm going to a talk by G. Willow Wilson, author of Ms. Marvel, at the end of next month so I wanted to catch up on her work. Mountolive is the third book of the Alexandria Quartet and came in the mail after the three I posted previously.  Fahrenheit 451 is the aniversary edition, and read by Tim Robbins, very exciting.  Make Room! Make Room! is the book that the movie "Soilent Green" is based on, and we are discussing it for an SFF Audio Readalong podcast.

I purchased a few Kindle Daily Deals this past month:

Savage Harvest by Carl Hoffman (my review)
The End is Now (The Apocalypse Triptych v. 2) edited by John Joseph Adams and Hugh Howey

And wow, I got approved for so many review books this month.  I finally broke down and made a list of books in the order they would expire! Librarians get bumped up especially on Edelweiss.  It's exciting because the books I get access to are a mix of books I want to read for pleasure and books that are related to the classes I work with, etc.  Penguin has a "First Flights" program which is where The Poser comes from.

I'm super excited about the new Neal Stephenson, and no doubt will buy myself a hardcover when it comes out.  I'm holding off on reading it a bit because I can't post a review until the month before it comes out and I just finished a mighty tome last week. I'm also curious about Proust as a graphic novel.

The Poser by Jacob Rubin
First Jobs by Merritt Watts
The Ladies of Managua by Eleni N. Gage
The Affinities by Robert Charles Wilson (no cover image)
The Fellowship: The Literary Lives of the Inklings by Philip Zaleski and Carol Zaleski
The Anchoress by Robyn Cadwallader
Onward and Upward in the Garden by Katharine White
In Search of Lost Time: Swann's Way (a graphic novel!) by Marcel Proust
The Green Road by Anne Enright
Where the Words End and My Body Begins by Amber Dawn
The Incarnations by Susan Barker
Seveneves by Neal Stephenson

It's probably a good thing that I'm a fast reader.
