Welcome to Over-Booked, my version of the ever popular book haul post, where I will be linking up with Stacking the Shelves at Tynga’s Reviews as well as The Sunday Post at The Caffeinated Book Reviewer. Alas, no huge, teetering pile of ARCs from BEA for this blogger (and yes, I’ll admit to feeling jealous of all the ginormous book hauls everyone seems to be posting this week), but I did spend my Mother’s Day Barnes & Noble gift card last week, and I picked up a few digital ARCs as well. Here’s my book haul:
Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige. Because, I just need a copy of this and want to read it sooo bad.
The Three by Sarah Lotz. When book bloggers I really trust say that this is one of their favorite books of the year so far, I listen.
Bird Box by Josh Malerman. This book has some amazing reviews and sounds really scary. I can’t wait to read it.
The Snake Charm by Laura Lam. I just loved Lam’s Pantomime and Shadowplay, and this is a short story set in the same world. Lam has self-published this story, and plans on writing more in the same vein, and I love that she’s named her publishing company “Penglass Publishing.” (If you’ve read her books you’ll understand the reference!)
Best British Horror 2014 edited by Johnny Mains. This anthology from one of my favorite small British publishers, Salt Publishing, is bound to be good. Everything I’ve read of theirs is top-notch.
A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray. I adore this cover, and the story sounds pretty good as well.
Winterspell by Claire Legrand. This is a retelling of The Nutcracker, and it sounds sooo good.
That’s my haul this week! What did you get?
