#5OnMyTBR is a bookish meme hosted by E. @ Local Bee Hunter’s Nook and you can learn more about it here or in the post announcing it. It occurs every Monday when we post about 5 books on our TBR.
Decided to do something a little different with these posts, and highlight why they’re on my TBR/why I want to read them. Thanks to having quite a few of the Marvel novels on my TBR, this will be a little Marvel heavy.
#5OnMyTBR February 27th: Superhero
Black Panther: Panther’s Rage by Sheree Renée Thomas
Firstly, I do really need to read some of the Black Panther comics. I love this character, I love Wakanda, and it is fun seeing different takes on the characters. The book is a re-imagining of one of the comic arcs, and it definitely sounds intriguing, following T’Challa across a variety of terrains. It was released by Titan Books here in the UK (who provided me a copy via NetGalley), and I have a lot of faith in them as a publisher, so I definitely think I’ll enjoy this one.
Queen of Deception by Anna Stephens
Hela, Lady Sif and a Valkyrie, in Elizabethan England…do I really need to say more? Probably not but when has that ever stopped me? This is from Aconyte, another Marvel book from NetGalley, and is part of the Legends of Asgard series. I’ve read one of these before and though I wasn’t completely fussed on it, this one sounds a bit more up my street. And seriously, it’s Marvel combined with Historical Fantasy. Of course I’m looking forward to it.
Shadow Avengers by Carrie Harris
Another of the Aconyte books, this one part of the Crisis Protocol series. Here, the Shadow Avengers – created by Doctor Strange – face various threats, and it feels a bit more standard Marvel fare than Queen of Deception. Which I think I’ll still enjoy, especially considering the characters involved.
The Harrowing of Doom by David Annandale
This book – another Marvel Aconyte novel – is part of the Untold series. I quite like Doom as a character, and it’s always intriguing when we’re given the opportunity to understand him a bit more. I have high hopes for this book.
The Nobody People by Bob Proehl
This is another Titan book and it has been sitting on my TBR for way, way too long. It is one I definitely want to read, as it sounds right up my street, and I do love novels that tackle superheroes when they’re done well, so hopefully I’ll enjoy this one!
So there are five superhero books currently on my TBR – hopefully it won’t be too much longer before I get to read them!
