Over-Booked (8) – A Book Haul Post

Over booked banner

Welcome to Over-Booked, my book haul post where I link up with Stacking the Shelves and The Sunday Post. Head on over to link up your own book haul post, or jump around and see what everyone’s got! ย I have a smallish haul this week, which is good after my Comic Con haul last week, and I’m very excited about these books:

8-9 overbooked

The Golden City and The Seat of Magic by J. Kathleen Cheney. I was so excited when I found out I had won these beauties from The Bibliosanctum! This is one series I’ve heard nothing but good things about, and I’m anxious to start reading them. Thanks, Mogsy and Wendy!

Full Fathom Five by Max Gladstone. I loved this third entry in Max’s series, and Tor was kind enough to send me a finished hardcover. Thanks Tor!

The Apex Book of World SF3 edited by Lavie Tidhar. I’ll be reading this anthology this month. Apex has never let me down, and I’m excited to read some diverse stories from all over the world. Thanks Apex!

The Iron Trial by Holly Black and Cassandra Clare. I don’t usually read middle grade, but this looks like fun, and it’s pretty short. Thank you, Scholastic Press!

Edelweiss/NetGalley review titles:

Into Darkness (Night Prowler #6) by J.T. Geissinger. If you’ve been reading this blog at all, you know I’m one of J.T.’s biggest fans. This is the final book in her Night Prowler seriesโ€”boo!! I know the author is probably ready to move on to something else, but I’m not! Big thanks to Montlake Press.

Black Dog by Caitlin Kittredge. Right after I featured this book on Waiting on Wednesday, I realized it was an Edelweiss title, and I was thrilled to be quickly approved. Thank you Harper Voyager!

Indie review titles:


Rewinder by Brett Battles. Yeah, I know. I don’t review indies any more. But Brett and I, well, we go waaay back. And when he told me his latest is a suspense/time travel story, of course I said I would read it! I love his books, and he’s one indie writer that really knows how to do things right. I mean, check out the cover! It looks professional, right? (And it is. He does everything professionally.) I may not be able to squeeze this in this month, but next month for sure. Thanks Brett:-) And put this up on Goodreads, will ya?

That’s it for me. Let me know what goodies you acquired this week!

  1. Oooh the Iron Trial, I think I requested a copy a while back so I’m keen to hear what people think of it. I’ve never read a Holly Black book but I’ve heard she does creepy well. Hope you enjoy the rest of your reads, Tammy!

  2. Great haul this week! I was really tempted by The Iron Trial, but all the reviews I have seen have pointed out it’s very similar to Harry Potter. After all the trouble CC has got in before for plagiarism, I don’t think I can deal with another book that rips off HP. Might have to skip that one, will definitely look out for your review though. I hope you enjoy all your reads this week ๐Ÿ™‚ Here’s my STS.

  3. I’ll be reading The Golden Seat very soon — it’ll be part of our upcoming mermaid/seafolk feature and I am EXCITED! They sound right up my alley. I also have The Iron Trial and almost started it today but I have so much other good stuff coming out before then. Plus I need to read the Gladstone. I need to check out that Apex anthology — sounds right up my alley!

    • I’m very excited to see what you have in store for the mermaid feature! And I do think you would enjoy Gladstone. There are just TOO MANY BOOKS…

  4. Like Nathan, I’m slowly catching up with Max Gladstone. I do wish I’d gotten to that party a little earlier!

    and you are going to love Apex Book of World SF. it’s awesome.

  5. Ooh, enjoy the Golden City books! I received a copy of Full Fathom Five as well, I guess I need to get cracking on Two Serpents Rise. And I don’t read much MG either, but that Iron Trial book looks kinda cool!

  6. You have The Iron Trial! I can’t wait to read this one. I’ve not read any Holly Black but I love Cassandra Clare. I hope you enjoy it and all your other books

    Black Dog sounds good but I avoided picking it up because it’s a brand new series and I keep telling myself to finish some of the ones I’m in the middle of first. lol It’s not going so well, but I keep trying. Hope you enjoy your new reads! ๐Ÿ™‚
