Over-Booked [49] – A Book Haul Post

Welcome to Over-Booked, my “couple times a month” post where I share my most recent book acquisitions. I’m linking up with Stacking the Shelves at Tynga’s Reviews and The Sunday Post at The Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

Nice, light book haul today, which is great, since I’m SO far behind with review books!

Physical books for review:

ob 5-27

A couple of surprise arrivals and one book that I eagerly accepted after the publicist asked me if I’d like a copy!

The Best Science Fiction of the Year: Volume 1, edited by Neil Clarke. A rather intimidating door-stopper of a book, but just look at the authors that have stories in this collection: Aliette de Bodard, Ann Leckie, Ken Liu, Ian McDonald, Seanan McGuire! And LOTS more. I’ll definitely try to fit this into my schedule, and even if I can’t read the entire book, I’ll certainly be checking out a bunch of these stories! Big thanks to Nightshade Books for this copy:-)

The Geek Feminist Revolution by Kameron Hurley. I had actually been eyeing this book on NetGalley, but hadn’t committed to actually requesting it, when a finished paperback showed up in the mail. Hurley has written quite a few pieces about her life as a female writer in a field dominated by men, some of them quite personal from what I understand, so I’m really looking forward to checking this out. Thank you Tor!

Quantum Break: Zero State by Cam Rogers. I read an enthusiastic review of this book on The Bibliosanctum, and so I immediately said “yes” to a review copy when I was asked. I’m not familiar with the video game this is based on, but apparently I don’t need to be in order to enjoy it. Thank you Tor!

Digital review copies:

Red Queen (The Chronicles of Alice #2) by Christina Henry. I loved Alice, the first book in the series, which was dark dark dark. And I expect no less of this sequel!

The Graces (The Graces #1) by Laure Eve. A story about witches. That is all. Yes, I’m excited! Plus I love this cover.

That’s it for me this week! I’d love to know if you’re planning on reading any of these books:-)

      Thanks for visiting, I’ve taken a peek inside The Geek Feminist Revolution and it looks like something different, which I am always looking for:-)

      Oh good! If you don’t mind DARK, you will LOVE Alice. I can’t wait to read the sequel:-)

      You are so good! I don’t buy nearly as many books as I used to, but I did have a serious book buying problem at one point, books being more important than paying the rent, for instance!

  1. Well, the only book I’ve heard of here is The Graces – I saw it on a friend’s blog, as a WoW choice. 😀 I haven’t read anything about witches in quite some time, so that might prove to be an interesting book. Congrats on the surprise arrivals, those are always FUN! I hope you enjoy all of your new books, Tammy. =)

    Thanks for visiting my blog! Have a fantastic week!

  2. Great stack of books – as ever! Interested to see what you think of the 2nd Alice book. I’m keeping my eye on that one – interested to see how the series pans out.
