Over-Booked [18] – A Book Haul Post

Over booked banner

Welcome to Over-Booked, my version of the book haul post, where I share my latest book acquisitions with you! I usually do an Over-Booked post every other week. I’m linking up with Stacking the Shelves at Tynga’s Reviews and The Sunday Post at The Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

I got some surprise books in the mail from the always generous Tor Books, a few digital review books, and I’m happy to say, only one purchased book! Here are my latest and greatest:

Physical books:

Over booked 2-7

The Eterna Files by Leanna Renee Hieber. I had some nice surprises in the mail from Tor this past week, and this was one of them. I really like the sound of this book, which takes place during the time of Queen Victoria.

Karen Memory by Elizabeth Bear. I had requested an ARC of this book, and was thrilled when a finished copy showed up. I’ve read nothing but glowing reviews for this one, and can’t wait to get started!

Finn Fancy Necromancy by Randy Henderson. Another Tor surprise, I’m curious to see what this book is all about. Has anyone read it yet? I originally thought it was middle grade, because that title and cover!

Big thanks to Tor Books for the review copies!

Gideon by Alex Gordon. I bought this at Barnes & Noble while I was waiting for my California Pizza Kitchen order to be ready, ha ha. I’ve had this on my wish list and since it’s out in paperback, I wanted to pick up a copy.

Notice how all these neutral colored covers go together??

Digital review books:

Broken Skies by Theresa Kay. I received a copy from the author, thanks Theresa! I’ll be diving into this YA science fiction story next month.

Unchained Memory by Donna S. Frelick. I’m very careful about selecting books from publishers I’m not familiar with, but I’m intrigued by this title from small press INK’d.

Sing Me Your Scars by Damien Angelica Walters. I just accepted this book of short stories for review from Apex Books, and I’m looking forward to reading them. Big thanks to Lesley!

Sweet by Emmy Laybourne. Terror on a cruise ship? Yes! Sign me up:-)

Nightbird by Alice Hoffman. I was excited to see this YA on NetGalley. Alice Hoffman, in addition to writing extraordinary magic realism for adults, has also written a bunch of YA fantasies. This Hoffman’s first book for the middle grade crowd, and it’s sure to have her magical touch.

Thank you Macmillan and Wendy Lamb Books!

That’s my book haul this week! What’s yours?

    Great haul of books! I got a copy of Finn Fancy Necromancy this week too, not heard too much about it but the few pages I’ve read were pretty good and definitely not MG! Looking forward to hearing what you think of Karen Memory, will need to pick up a copy soon.

    Enjoy your new books and happy reading 🙂

      Oh good! I read a sort of negative review of it, so I was worried. So glad you enjoyed it!

  2. I got similar surprises from Tor this week, though I already had read both Eterna Files and Karen Memory. The first was all right, but I loved the second as you might have already seen – I hope you get to read it soon 🙂

    Haven’t read Finn Fancy Necromancy and I actually only heard of it recently, and I thought it was a sequel.

  3. Hey. What is The Eterna Files? It looks awesome. Actually, all of your books do! I’m planning on doing interviews of other bloggers on mine. I did it for a while then got busy with some other things. I had fun and have followed a lot of new blogs. It’s time to share them with others.
