I’m not sure it’s a hard-and-fast rule that if your book is featured on the Barnes & Noble Sci-Fi & Fantasy blog that you have to post about it, but we just started 2017, I’m not about to start jinxing things.
Earlier this week, B&N’s SFF blog shared 96 Books Sci-Fi & Fantasy Editors Can’t Wait for You to Read in 2017. It’s a pretty great list including the next book in Victoria Schwab’s Shades of Magic series, which I absolutely adore, and the next Toby Daye book from Seanan McGuire. Also, to my delight, it included Borrowed Souls.
Since the post is super long, I’ll excerpt that part for you below, but I still think reading the big list is worth your time. It’s only the first week of January. Start building that to-be-read pile.
Borrowed Souls, by Chelsea Mueller (May 2)
What if, whenever you wanted to do something you knew you weren’t supposed to, you went to the store and rented someone else’s soul for the weekend? That way, you could sin to your heart’s content, knowing it wouldn’t be going on your own so-called permanent record. That’s a heck of a pitch for a romantic urban fantasy series. Main character Callie Delgado is sassy and stubborn in all the right ways, and I’m sure readers won’t mind if debut author Chelsea Mueller, who founded the Vampire Book Club blog and also writes for Heroes & Heartbreakers, spends just a little extra time describing Derek, the ruggedly-handsome partner Callie’s assigned when she stumbles into the seedy underworld of soul renting. Not that those two might end up catching feelings for each other or anything…
Also, a shout-out to Mogsy at Bibliosanctum for including Borrowed Souls in her Top Ten 2017 Debuts I’m Excited For post.
