Over-Booked is my every-other-week or so post to share the books I’ve been getting for review, purchased or won. I’m linking up with Stacking the Shelves at Tynga’s Reviews and The Sunday Post at the Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
I’ve been pretty successful at backing off on the book requests, especially on NetGalley and Edelweiss, so I only have a few new titles this week to share (which is a good thing!). But I did get some very cool things:
The Empty Ones by Robert Brockway. Thanks to Tor for this beautiful finished copy! I’m very excited to dive into book two of Brockway’s punk rock horror novel. I’ll be hosting Robert here on the blog next month, and I’ll have a giveaway of the book as well, so check back!
Gods of Nabban by K.V. Johansen. Thanks to Pyr for this lovely finished paperback. I hope to squeeze this into the schedule soon.
The Graveyard Apartment by Mariko Koike. This was a very enthusiastic request, and I’m so grateful to Thomas Dunne for the review copy. I love Japanese horror and I’ve heard some good things about his one. It was originally published in the 80s and I believe this is the first English translation.
This Census-Taker by China Miéville. My latest purchase from limited edition publisher Subterranean Press, I’ve been waiting months for this to arrive. This edition is signed by the author and has some beautiful and creepy artwork scattered throughout!
Edgar Allan Poe: An Adult Coloring Book by Odessa Begay. This was a surprise from Sterling Publishing, and I just about fell over when I opened this package! Wow, what a cool coloring book, and just in time for the Halloween season:-) Thank you Sterling!
Digital review books:
Just one digital book this week, but such an awesome one! Big thanks to Matt Wallace for contacting me to see if I’d like to review his latest, Rencor: Life in Grudge City. The publisher describes this as “…like 48 Hours or Starsky and Hutch fused with El Santo and the Aztec Mummy.” Wallace is one of my favorite authors, and this sounds CRAZY. Big thanks to From Parts Unknown for the review copy!
And that’s my book haul this week! Let me know if you’re planning to read any of these:-D
