Welcome to Over-Booked, my twice-monthly book haul post, where I share my recent book acquisitions. I’m linking up with Stacking the Shelves at Tynga’s Reviews and The Sunday Post at The Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
Some very cool review books made their way to me these past couple of weeks, including a lovely Ace Roc Star package from the folks at Ace/Roc! Here’s what I received:
Weighing Shadows by Lisa Goldstein. Thanks to Night Shade Books for this finished copy. This was just released, and I hope to read and review it this month.
The I in Evil by Ken W. Hanley. Another surprise from Skyhorse, this looks like a tongue-in-cheek self-help guide for monsters, LOL! Looks like fun!
A Borrowed Man by Gene Wolfe. Thanks to Tor for this finished copy:-) I have to admit, I’ve never read Gene Wolfe before, but I’d like to slot this into Sci-Fi Month if I can:-)
Son of the Morning by Mark Alder. I accepted this for review from Pegasus Books, but it is very long, and now I’m wondering if that was a good idea. But, it doesn’t come out until February, so I have time to schedule it:-) Thank you Pegasus!
Made to Kill by Adam Christopher. Huge thanks to Tor for this finished copy, and inviting me to be on the blog tour. My stop is the 16th, and I’ll be giving away THREE copies.
Big thanks to Ace/Roc for this awesome package:
Thunderbird by Jack McDevitt, Admiral by Sean Danker, Midnight Taxi Tango by Daniel José Older, Blood Song by Anthony Ryan, The Last Dream Keeper by Amber Benson, Midnight Crossroad by Charlaine Harris & A Kiss Before the Apocalypse by Thomas E. Sniegoski. I’m excited to see some older books that are the first in a series, and I’m really looking forward to catching up with Half Resurrection Blues before Midnight Taxi Tango comes out.
Digital review books:
Big thanks to Tor.com come for sending me (what looks like) their entire new line-up so far! Some of these won’t be officially released until 2016, and some are out already. I’m sure you’ve seen reviews for many of these novellas on other blogs. I was especially excited to see an upcoming novella from Victor LaValle. I read a novel of his a few years ago and really loved it. I’m really looking forward to diving in:
(And apologies for not linking these all up to Goodreads.)
Are you planning to read any of these? Let me know in the comments!
