Welcome to my (almost) every other week post where I share my recent book acquisitions! I think it’s been about three weeks since my last Over-Booked, and I’ve been pretty good about requesting new review books. I really am trying to request books I REALLY want to read, and I’m doing pretty well. I had a surprise purchase show up in the mail this week, which is funny because I just did a post about three pre-orders I’m excited about, and I completely forgot about this one, LOL!
Anyway, here are the books that made their way into my home/Kindle/tablet:
Complicit by Stephanie Kuehn. I’m so happy to have a copy of the paperback release of this book. I absolutely love Kuehn, and for some reason I never got to the digital review copy of this book I was approved for last year. Thank you St. Martin’s Griffin!
The Lyre Thief by Jennifer Fallon. I was very excited when this showed up unexpectedly, after seeing many of my blogger friends giving it a five-star rating. If time permits, I hope to squeeze it in this month. Thank you Tor!
The Return of the Witch by Paula Brackston. Thanks to Thomas Dunne for this surprise. This is the second book in the series, but I believe I have a copy of book one somewhere. Readers love this series, and I’m looking forward to reading it soon:-)
Hell’s Bounty by Joe R. Lansdale and John L. Lansdale. This was the pre-order I forgot about, but I was thrilled when it showed up in the mail. I’m a big Joe Lansdale fan from way back, and this time he’s co-writing with his brother. Really, all you need to say to me are the words “weird western” and I’m completely under your spell! This is a short novella that should be easy to fit into my schedule.
Black City Saint by Richard A. Knaak. I was pleased to receive a finished paperback from Pyr, and I’ll be reading this one soon! I’ve heard REALLY good things about it. Thank you Pyr!
The Hidden Twin by Adi Rule. I requested this from St. Martin’s Griffin, but I wasn’t paying much attention when I did. Now that I have it in my hands, and I’ve actually read the story blurb, I can’t WAIT to read it! Thanks to St. Martin’s Griffin!
Digital books for review:
Fellside by M.R. Carey. I believe I have a physical copy on the way, but in the meantime I was pretty damn excited to be approved for the digital galley. I was a huge fan of The Girl with All the Gifts, and I’m really looking forward to this. Thanks Orbit!
Breath of Earth by Beth Cato. Oooh look how pretty! I recently featured this on a Waiting on Wednesday, and so it was a no-brainer when it popped up on Edelweiss. Thank you Harper Voyager!
The Heavenly Table by Donald Ray Pollock. I still haven’t had time to read Pollock’s last book, The Devil All the Time, but when this popped up on Edelweiss I couldn’t resist. Nope, it’s not SFF, but it’s a dark Gothic thriller, and I’m very excited to read it. Thanks to Doubleday!
And from Tor.com, three new titles that will be published in the next few months: Runtime by S.B. Divya, City of Wolves by Willow Palecek, and Return of Souls by Andy Remic. Such a variety, right? I love that Tor.com is publishing stories that seem to be all over the SFF spectrum. Thank you Tor.com!
So that’s my book haul! Let me know if you plan to read any of these:-)
