New to the TBR Pile (39)

Borrowed from the library:
The Demon in the Wood (The Grisha #0.1)
by Leigh Bardugo

Before he ruled Ravka, before he was the Darkling, he was just a lonely boy with an extraordinary gift. In this prequel story to the New York Times-bestselling Grisha Trilogy, Leigh Bardugo takes us into Ravka's mysterious past, when Grisha lived as fugitives and the Darkling took his first steps on the path to power.

Flora & Ulysses: The Illuminated Adventures
by Kate DiCamillo
illustrated by K. G. Campbell

It begins, as the best superhero stories do, with a tragic accident that has unexpected consequences. The squirrel never saw the vacuum cleaner coming, but self-described cynic Flora Belle Buckman, who has read every issue of the comic book Terrible Things Can Happen to You!, is the just the right person to step in and save him. What neither can predict is that Ulysses (the squirrel) has been born anew, with powers of strength, flight, and misspelled poetry—and that Flora will be changed too, as she discovers the possibility of hope and the promise of a capacious heart.

What's new to your TBR pile this week?  Let me know in the comments!


  1. Ohhh I didn't KNOW there were more Grisha ebooks. o_O Now I need them, clearly, since I miss that awesome epic world so much. xD

    1. They're just short stories, but yeah. There's more Grisha out there if you want it! Our library also has another one called The Witch of Duva, so I might have to check that one out in the future.
