Over-Booked [34] – A Book Haul Post

over booked new

Over-Booked is my every-other-week book haul post, where I’m linking up with Stacking the Shelves and The Sunday Post. I’ve been good about curbing my book requests, and this week my haul is pretty manageable, I’m happy to report! We’re headed into a nice three-day weekend here in the U.S., which is great because, extra reading time! Here’s what’s new at my house:

Physical books:

OB 9-5

Tower of Thorns by Juliet Marillier. I still need to catch up with this series, but I have a couple of months before release day for this book, so I’m pretty sure I can do it. Super excited to finally start this! Big thanks to Roc!

The Tokyo Zodiac Murders by Soji Shimada. I was very happy to hear from my publicist at Pushkin Press about their new imprint called Pushkin Vertigo. I don’t read a lot of crime fiction, but I do love it, and I’m excited to be able to try out these titles. Pushkin Vertigo is reprinting some of the world’s most famous crime fiction, from a variety of international authors. This one was originally published in Japan in 1981 and is a “locked door” mystery. Thank you Pushkin!

Earth Flight by Janet Edwards. This is the final book in the series, another series I have yet to start, but now I feel compelled to do a binge read:-) Big thanks to Pyr Books!

The Sleeping King by Cindy Dees and Bill Flippin. A surprise arrival from Tor, I have to admit when I first glanced at the book I saw the words “Stephen King,” LOL! I’m hearing good things about this one, so I hope I can squeeze it in at some point. Thank you Tor:-)

Speak Easy by Catherynne M. Valente. This is a purchase from Subterranean Press. I think I pre-ordered this about six months ago, and it finally arrived. It’s a gorgeous signed and numbered copy, a short novella that I’ll be reading very soon.

Digital review books:

A Drop of Night by Stefan Bachmann. HarperTeen dropped their newest batch of books on Edelweiss this week, and I selected only two. (See, I told you I’ve been very good!) I couldn’t pass this one up, check out the story description!

The Girl From Everywhere by Heidi Heilig. Another HarperTeen title, this story takes place partly in Hawaii, a location you don’t see used much in fantasy. Big thanks to HarperTeen for these books.

The Machinery by Gerrard Cowan. The author contacted me and offered me a digital copy of this HarperVoyager UK title. I’ve enjoyed a few of their titles, and I’m pretty excited to read this! Thanks to Gerrard!

That’s it for me, let me know if you plan to read any of these:-)

    Great haul of books! Green with envy over Tower of Thorns but at least the wait for it isn’t too long now! I chose the same two books from HarperTeen on Edelweiss, The Girl From Everywhere was nearly my WoW choice this week so looking forward to it 🙂

    Happy reading!

  2. Some rather lovely looking books – I’m particularly eyeballing your Tower of Thorns – I would seriously think of trying my hand at the dark arts to get a copy of that! 😀 😀
    I don’t think you’ll have a problem catching up, Dreamer’s Pool is so good you’ll fly through it and then no doubt won’t be able to resist diving straight in to ToT!

  3. Ahhhh, Juliet Marillier! I’ve only read Daughter of the Forest so far, and I loved it and can’t wait to read more of her work (including the Blackthorn and Grim books) in the future. I hope you enjoy it!

    I’ve also seen Earth Flight a lot recently. Haven’t read that series either, so it’s new to me, but I look forward to reading your thoughts about that one too.

    Btw I’m reading Uprooted right now – and it’s SO charming! 😀

  4. Your assignment: to read Dreamer’s Pool for Backlist Burndown this month, this message will self destruct in 20 seconds.

    In all seriousness though, hope you do catch up in time for ToT, I love it so much! 🙂

    And the Earth Girl trilogy is definitely worth it, I hope you get a chance to check it out too!

  5. I love this haul! It seems like you have a lot of good reads waiting on you for the near future! Have fun with these ^^ The Sleeping King sounds pretty cool! Oh, and the Girl From Everywhere is one I have in common with you. I am so looking forward to that one and have been anticipating it for a while.
