Over-Booked [41] – A Book Haul Post

over booked new

Welcome to Over-Booked, my every-other-week book haul post where I share my latest review books and purchases. I’m linking up with Stacking the Shelves at Tynga’s Reviews and The Sunday Post at the Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

Although I’ve mostly slowed down with requesting books, a few have come my way in the last two weeks, and I can’t believe I’m already planning far ahead into 2016, as some of my review books don’t come out until next summer! These past two weeks were also a bonanza in e-galleys, I’m not sure exactly what happened, LOL! HarperCollins dropped a couple of my WoW picks the other day, and of course I had to download them. And Tor.com is always so kind and has some kick-ass titles coming out next year!

Physical ARCs:

ob 12-19

A Criminal Magic by Lee Kelly and Borderline by Mishell Baker. I think I yelped when this package from Saga Press came in the mail! These two fantasy titles are high on my “must read” list of 2016 releases, and I can’t wait to dig in. Huge thanks to Saga Press!

Paper Tigers by Damien Angelica Walters. I read Walters’ short story collection Sing Me Your Scars earlier this year, and fell in love with her writing. Her stories are sometimes hard to read, but she is one of those authors who writes unflinchingly about loss and really make you think. Big thanks to Dark House Press for sending this review copy!

Digital ARCs:

This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab. I’m a big Schwab fan, and I’m excited to start her new YA series.

Night Speed by Chris Howard. This was another Waiting on Wednesday pick, I get so excited when my WoW picks pop up on Edelweiss:-)

The Dragon Round by Stephen S. Power. This was someone else’s WoW pick recently, in fact I’ve seen this book on a couple of trustworthy bloggers’ sites, so it was inevitable that I add it to my list.

Arena by Holly Jennings. I was just invited to review this title, and I was very happy, since it sounds like fun. There are some mixed reviews on GR, but what the heck, I love competition-type stories:-)

On the Edge of Gone by Corinne Duyvis. this was on my Ten 2016 YA Sci-Fi Books on my Radar list, so of course I jumped when I saw it on NetGalley.

Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire. I’ve been eyeing this book for months, and I’m super happy to have a copy in hand, even though it won’t be released until next April.

I really need to get cracking on my Tor.com novellas, because new ones keep coming out! In the past couple of weeks these amazing-looking books have ended up on my tablet: Forest of Memory by Mary Robinette Kowal, Lustlocked by Matt Wallace, The Absconded Ambassador by Michael R. Underwood, A Song for No Man’s Land by Andy Remic, and The Devil You Know by K.J. Parker.

Huge thanks to Tor.com, Greenwillow Books, Katherine Tegen Books, Simon & Schuster/Simon 451, Ace Books, and Amulet Books for these lovelies!

I’d love to know if you plan to read any of these:-)

  1. Some lovely books on here. I’ve had my eye on that McGuire book – it has such a gorgeous cover too!
    I’ve also been looking at lustlocked – I kind of like the sound of that one.
    And of course The Dragon Round – I’m very excited about that one.

      Lustlocked is the second book in a series, I think. You have to read Envy of Angels first, which I just read and LOVED!! I’m going to read Lustlocked soon. The author is so funny!!

      I really need to read Lee Kelly’s first book, I’ve heard great things about it. Glad to know you enjoyed it!

      I still have my eye on The Crown’s Game, if I can catch up a bit on review books, I may go back and download it:-)

    • Tammy

      She is prolific, and she writes under more than one name which really makes it hard to keep up:-)

    • Tammy

      Saga Press is really publishing some great books, so I’m excited about these too, of course;-)

    • Tammy

      That’s true, DJ! I’m trying to only request Wow books, we’ll see how that goes:-)

    • Tammy

      I loved it, I hope you do too. Schwab is really good, although I still haven’t found any of her books that beat Vicious.

    • Tammy

      I’ve heard great things about McGuire’s latest, plus it’s a novella so it will be easier to squeeze in:-)

      I wish Every Heart a Doorway weren’t so far away. I may have to break down and read it soon!
