Welcome to Over-Booked, where I share my latest book purchases and review acquisitions, adding more to my already toppling TBR pile! I’m happy to be linking up with Stacking the Shelves over at Tynga’s Reviews, and The Sunday Post at The Caffeinated Book Reviewer. Stop by their blogs to check out more book haul posts!
I’ve just revamped my blog design, and when I logged on this morning I decided I’d better test the links on my share icons. And for some strange reason, they were all linked to my Goodreads account! I have no idea why this happened, but they are all fixed now, so please feel free to follow me if you haven’t already.
This week I received mostly physical books, including a BEA surprise book from the lovely Tabitha at Not Yet Read! I picked up only one digital review copy from NetGalley, simply because it’s the second book in a series I love. Otherwise I’ve been VERY good about not over-requesting…Here are the books I received during the past two weeks:
The Godless by Ben Peek. Won from Goodreads! OK, seriously, I haven’t won a Goodreads giveaway in about three years, so I was shocked to win this book, especially after I had recently listed it as one of my Top Ten Summer Must-Reads. The Godless comes out in August from Thomas Dunne Books.
The Shotgun Arcana by R.S. Belcher. I loved Belcher’s first book in his Golgotha series, The Six-Gun Tarot, and I’m thrilled to be able to read his second book early. The Shotgun Arcana releases this October from Tor Books.
This Shattered World by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner. Big thanks to Tabitha at Not Yet Read for sending me this book! I’m thrilled beyond words, because I loved These Broken Stars. And she was also kind enough to send an original sketch of one of her adorable girls:-) Thank you Tabitha!!
The Martian by Andy Weir. I received this from the fairly new Blogging for Books. Now before you get all indignant about this “books in exchange for a review” site, I’m just trying it out to see if I like it. I’ve read a few blog posts about what a horrible idea this is, but I’m sorry to say I don’t share those opinions. Don’t worry, if you have no idea what I’m talking about, I’m going to have a discussion post soon on this very topic. Stay tuned! In the meantime, I’m pretty excited to get a copy of The Martian, which was published earlier this year and got amazing reviews.
Thank you Tor Books, Thomas Dunne Books, Tabitha and Blogging for Books!
Blightborn (The Heartland Trilogy #2) by Chuck Wendig. I absolutely love everything Chuck Wendig writes, and he does young adult really well too. I loved Under the Empyrean Sky, and despite my ban on all things NetGalley and Edelweiss, I couldn’t resist. Thank you NetGalley and Skyscape!
And there you have it…let me know what goodies you received this week!
