Welcome to Over-Booked, where I share my most recent book acquisitions, which include review books, purchases and sometimes giveaway wins! I’m linking up with Stacking the Shelves over at Tynga’s Reviews and The Sunday Post at The Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
I’ve restrained myself when it comes to digital review copies, but it’s much harder to say “no” to physical copies. Here’s what I received in the past few weeks:
Behind Her Eyes by Sarah Pinborough. I just started reading this, so hopefully I’ll get a review up next week. Lots of buzz about this book and the #wtfthatending. I’m curious!
Department Zero by Paul Crilley. A lovely finished paperback courtesy of Pyr Books! Take a look, if you’d like to win a copy just like this, I have a giveaway starting on Monday!
Nebula Awards Showcase 2017 edited by Julie E. Czerneda. Pyr’s annual roundup of fiction, poetry and non-fiction. I’m looking forward to this!
Upside Down: Inverted Tropes in Storytelling edited Jaym Gates & Monica Valentinelli, from Apex Books. I backed the Kickstarter for this book, and I was very happy to get it! Unlike ANOTHER Kickstarter, who shall not be named (cough Genius Loci cough) that I backed over two years ago and never got my book:-( Don’t even get me started…
Winter of the Gods by Jordanna Max Brodsky. Super excited to continue this series! The Immortals was one of my favorite books last year. Thank you Orbit!
Star’s End by Cassandra Rose Clarke. I was so excited to get this in the mail, one of my most highly anticipated books of 2017! Big thanks to Saga Press.
The Collapsing Empire by John Scalzi. Big thanks to Tor for the blog tour invitation, I’ll be reviewing this in March.
An Alchemy of Masques and Mirrors by Curtis Craddock. Huge thanks to the author for contacting me and offering a review copy! This is on my list of anticipated debuts of 2017, so I’m thrilled to be able to read and review it:-)
Digital review copies:
The Prey of Gods by Nicky Draydon. Huge thanks to Harper Voyager, this is another debut I’m excited to read!
River of Teeth by Sarah Gailey. This may be the first ever SFF novella about feral hippos! Big thanks to Tor.com for the review copy:-)
From Ice to Ashes by Rhett C. Bruno. Rhett contacted me to see if I’d like to review his latest, which comes out in March. This is a standalone story set in the author’s Titanborn world. I’m looking forward to it, thanks to Rhett and Random House Hydra!
