Welcome to Over-Booked, my twice-monthly book haul post! I’m linking up with Stacking the Shelves over at Tynga’s Reviews and The Sunday Post at the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. Check out their links and you can see other book hauls! Luckily for my reading schedule, my book haul is fairly small this week. A couple of new digital review copies came my way, titles I couldn’t resist, and a couple of purchases. Here’s what I have:
The physical pile:
Duplicity by N.K. Traver. I received this finished copy courtesy of Thomas Dunne books. This YA debut is billed as “Breaking Bad meet The Matrix.” Oh yeah, I’m very excited to read this one!
Once: Loteria Grande Card Set by artist John Picacio. A random tweet led me to this gorgeous Loteria card set, and I didn’t even have to think twice about buying it. I remember some time ago this was a Kickstarter project, and now I’m happy to see the artist is still selling the cards. John has won all sorts of awards for his artwork, and you can see why from these amazing cards! Check out his website here.
The digital pile:
Harrison Squared by Daryl Gregory. Thank you to Tor Books! I just read and reviewed We Are All Completely Fine, in which MC Harrison makes an appearance. I can’t wait to read more about Harrison’s early years!
The Gracekeepers by Kirsty Logan. Thank you to Crown for this title! I’ll admit I’m a sucker for book comparisons, and this author is being compared to Margaret Atwood and Angela Carter!
Dark Star by Oliver Langmead. Although I didn’t really enjoy my first experience with Unsung Stories (The Beauty), I am certainly willing to try another of their titles. Plus, pretty cover! Thanks to the publisher!
Undertow by Michael Buckley. Coney Island and people who live in the ocean?? Yes, count me in! Thank you HMH Books for Young Readers!
And just because…
Somewhere on the interwebz (most likely Twitter), I stumbled upon a Kickstarter that looked awesome, and I decided to back it. Genius Loci: Tales of the Spirit Place is a collection of short stories by some great writers. Check it out and you may want to support this project as well!
That’s it for me this week. What goodies have you recently acquired?
