Over-Booked [17] – A Book Haul Post

Over booked banner

Welcome to Over-Booked, where I’m sharing my recent book acquisitions, and linking up with Stacking the Shelves at Tynga’s Reviews and The Sunday Post at The Caffeinated Book Reviewer. I caved and requested a couple of Edelweiss titles, but I am getting pickier, so these are books I’m very excited about reading! Here’s what I have this week:

Physical books:

overbooked 1-24

Sweetland by Michael Crummey. This is my only purchase lately, and it just happens to be my Riot Read book of the month. I’ve heard good things about this story, and I still get a kick out of opening the Riot Read package each month and being surprised!

Tunnel Vision by Susan Adrian. Thank you to St. Martin’s Press for this finished copy! I was on the blog tour this past week and you can read my review of Tunnel Vision and enter to win a copy as well.

Pacific Fire by Greg Van Eekhout. Big thanks to Tor for the review copy! I just finished this and LOVED it. My review will be up next week, and I’m part of the blog tour on Wednesday, so make sure to come back and read my interview with Greg. I believe there is a giveaway for this blog tour as well.

There Once Lived a Mother who Loved Her Children, Until They Moved Back In by Ludmilla Petrushevskaya. OK, that’s got to be the record for the longest title ever! I won this book from Grace @ Books Without Any Pictures. Thank you Grace! This looks like a lot of fun.

Kushiel’s Dart by Jacqueline Carey. Big thanks to Tor for sending me this gorgeous reissue of a book that’s getting lots of attention! I’ll be reviewing it next month, and Tor is offering up copies for a giveaway, so stay tuned!

From Edelweiss/NetGalley:

Flex by Ferrett Steinmetz. Thanks to Angry Robot for the review copy! This book sounds awesome!

Uprooted by Naomi Novik. I’ve already seen good reviews for this book, and although I haven’t read any Novik before, I hear she’s really good.

Throne of Darkness by Douglas Nicholas. This is the third book in a series, and even though I missed the second book, the publisher tells me this works well as a stand-alone. I absolutely loved Something Red, so I’m anxious to check this out.

That’s my book haul for now! I’d love to hear if you’re planning on reading any of these! And link me up to your book hauls:-D

  1. Yay to Flex!
    Kushiel’s Dart – interested to see what you make of it. I enjoyed it but haven’t read the rest of the series yet so a bit of catching up in that respect!! It’s a very well loved series though.

  2. I’ve read Novik’s Temeraire series (or is it her only other one?) and yes she is good! I dropped it about 6 books in though, it went gradually downhill after book 1. I’m definitely ready for something new from her, and I’m pretty excited for Uprooted.

    And awesome about Kushiel’s Dart! I love Carey’s Kushiel stuff soooo much. One of my favorite series of all time. Be prepared for a major book hangover when you finish πŸ™‚

  3. I also loved Something Red, and have the second book but for some reason never read it!! I’m also quite curious to hear about Pacific Fire. I still have to read California Bones! It’s sitting in my bedroom staring at me (quite accusingly I might add πŸ˜‰ I haven’t read Novik yet either, but am hoping to read Uprooted πŸ™‚

      You’re the first blogger I’ve met who has read Something Red, cool! I loved that book, and I’m kicking myself for not reading book two.

  4. Uprooted looks really good. I almost requested it but I need to be better behaved with my review books for awhile. Happy Reading!
