Over-Booked [51] – A Book Haul Post

Hello fellow book hoarders! Welcome to my [randomly scheduled] book haul! I’m linking up with Stacking the Shelves at Tynga’s Reviews and The Sunday Post at The Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

These are the books that I’ve acquired in the last three weeks, and I can’t wait to read all of them:-)

Physical books:

ob 7-2

Flying by Carrie Jones. A surprise arrival from Tor Teen, I’ve actually had my eye on this. It sounds like a bunch of fun, aliens and cheerleaders and more, and I’m getting a Buffy vibe from it:-) Thank you Tor Teen!

The Root by Na’amen Gobert Tilahun. This was a surprise from Night Shade Books, and I’m intrigued! Gritty urban fantasy, sounds like something I’m in the mood for right now, in fact:-)

Song of the Deep by Brian Hastings. Middle grade isn’t my normal go-to, but the awesome publicist from Sterling Publishing offered me a copy. It’s a gorgeous little hardcover (seriously, all of Sterling’s books are gorgeous!) and the publication of the book coincides with the release of a video game of the same name. Thank you Sterling!

Bite by K.S. Merbeth. So happy to see this in the mail, big thanks to Orbit! And for some reason, I was sent two copies, so if someone in the U.S is dying to read/review this, let me know and I’ll send you one.

Time Siege by Wesley Chu. A surprise finished copy from Tor, thank you! I’ll be reading this VERY soon, so stay tuned for a review.

The Waking Fire by Anthony Ryan. This came from the Ace/Roc Stars team, and I’ve heard really good things about it. Thanks Ace!

Digital review books:

The Kraken Sea by E. Catherine Tobler. I snagged this review copy from Apex Books, and not only is the cover stunning, buts the story sounds amazing! It’s a novella, so it should be easy to squeeze in this month.

Certain Dark Things by Silvia Moreno-Garcia. This was a WoW pick, and I was so happy to be approved for this on NetGalley. Vampires! Latin American mythology! And a pretty pretty cover:-) Thank you Thomas Dunne Books!

Summerlong by Peter S. Beagle. A new book, after many years, from the author of The Last Unicorn.Β I’ve heard many good things about this book. Big thanks to Tachyon for the review copy:-)

And from Tor.com, three upcoming novellas that ALL sound pretty amazing:

Everything Belongs to the Future by Laurie Penny. Goodreads says “Everything Belongs to the Future is a bloody-minded tale of time, betrayal, desperation, and hope…” Yep, I’m in!

A Taste of Honey by Kai Ashante Wilson. OK, leopard on the cover. Points for that. Diversity and gay romance. Points for that too.

The Burning Light by Bradley P. Beaulieu and Rob Ziegler. I’m usually wary of books by two authors, but I’m dying to read something by Beaulieu, so this short novella seems like a good place to start.

Are you planning to read any of these books? What should I start with first??

  1. I can’t wait for A Taste of Honey, I already pre-ordered it πŸ˜€
    Silvia Moreno Garcia’s book sounds great, I ahve a copy of Signal to Noise and it’s high on my pile so I should get to it soonish ^^
    Great haul!

      I really want to read Signal to Noise, maybe after Certain Dark Things I can go back and catch up:-)

    • Tammy

      Right? I think I’m flashing back to Buffy Season 1 when she’s trying out for the cheerleading squad.

  2. Bite looks really interesting! I’m hoping to get it from the audio publisher later this month, with life being as hectic as it is these days a lot of much of my “reading” has had to be done through listening. And The Root was a book that caught my eye on Edel – is it really from Pyr? I could have sworn it was one of the Skyhorse imprints, because I remember being almost tempted to click the DRC request button!

  3. I plan on picking up Root for my kindle next week. Had hoped to get more reading done today but have to try to keep pup calm from all the idiots letting off fireworks tonight. Finally broke down and gave him doggy Xanax -vet prescribed but now I feel like I need some. You got tons of great books this week and you already know I’m waiting for your thoughts on Bite. Happy reading.

      Oh I hope your dog made it through fireworks ok! My little dachshund sat outside for a couple of hours last night, watching the rats in the orange tree, and didn’t even flinch!

    • Tammy

      Thanks, I have been hearing lots of buzz about the Waking Fire so hopefully it will rock!

  4. Nice haul! I got Elizabeth May’s The Vanishing Throne in the mail last week (just started it yesterday, too), and Rachel Caine’s Paper and Fire should be coming sometime next week. Y

      I’m looking forward to The Waking Fire, I just wish it weren’t quite so long:-)

    None of these are currently on my list, but I’m curious about The Waking Fire. Sounds interesting.

  6. Great list – lots of lovely books to look forward. I have a copy of Summerlong and Time Siege (which I’ve just started). Summerlong is such a lovely cover.

      Summerland is one of my favorite recent covers, it makes me want to start reading right away!
