My To Review in August List

As some of you might have noticed, I’ve already posted one review this month. It was of Flame (Frost Chronicles, Book2) by Erin Latimer and was originally scheduled for the end of July, but due to some other book-related commitments was posted a couple of days later.

As for what is scheduled for this month: one short story and one novel. Let’s start with the novel.

The Gunslinger – The Dark Tower, Book 1

The Gunslinger - The Dark Tower, Book 1 by Steven King

Author: Stephen King

Themes & Genres: Suspense, Fantasy

Blurb:

Roland is a haunting figure, a loner, on a spellbinding journey toward the mysterious Dark Tower, in a desolate world which frighteningly echoes our own.

On his quest, Roland begins a friendship with a kid from New York named Jake, encounters an alluring woman and faces an agonising choice between damnation and salvation as he pursues the Man in Black.

Date of my review: Sunday, August 27 Postponed to September

So, The Gunslinger isn’t what I usually review here, but my dad reads Stephen King and my mom is a huge The Dark Tower series fan so I thought it was about time I gave the books a try, starting with the first one, of course.

And now for the short story. We have…

In Vino

In Vino - a Spires short story by Alexis Hall

Author: Alexis Hall

Themes & Genres: Short Story, LGBT, Contemporary

Blurb:

Whoever claimed there was veritas in vino was a rank amateur.

Note: This story is a companion for Alexis Hall’s For Real novel.

Date of my review: Sunday, August 13
