It’s the first Thursday of the month. You know what that means. Time to report!
What is the best book you read in May 2014 and why did you love it? It doesn’t have to be a newly published book, or even SFF. We just want to share some great reading material. Feel free to post a full review of the book here, or a link to the review on your blog, or just write a few sentences about why you thought it was awesome.
I think you’re going to like these!
For today’s Thoughtful Thursday, we’ve got a special giveaway, courtesy of Tor books. They have graciously donated all three books in Deborah Coates‘ TAYLOR COUNTY trilogy, a contemporary rural fantasy which I have really enjoyed so far. One of today’s commenters (U.S. and Canadian addresses) will win all three hardcover books! Thank you, Tor!
As usual, we’ve got a couple of giveaways still current. Find those here!
About Deborah Coates’ trilogy: Taylor County — (2012-2014) Publisher: When Sergeant Hallie Michaels comes back to South Dakota from Afghanistan on ten days’ compassionate leave, her sister Dell’s ghost is waiting at the airport to greet her. The sheriff says that Dell’s death was suicide, but Hallie doesn’t believe it. Something happened or Dell’s ghost wouldn’t still be hanging around. Friends and family, mourning Dell’s loss, think Hallie’s letting her grief interfere with her judgment. The one person who seems willing to listen is the deputy sheriff, Boyd Davies, who shows up everywhere and helps when he doesn’t have to. As Hallie asks more questions, she attracts new ghosts, women who disappeared without a trace. Soon, someone’s trying to beat her up, burn down her father’s ranch, and stop her investigation. Hallie’s going to need Boyd, her friends, and all the ghosts she can find to defeat an enemy who has an unimaginable ancient power at his command.
