Over-Booked [73] – A Book Haul Post

Welcome to Over-Booked, where I share my latest and greatest book acquisitions! I’m linking up with Stacking the Shelves over at Tynga’s Reviews and The Sunday Post at The Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

I want to give big hugs to the publishers and authors who have sent books my way these past two weeks! I got some wonderful surprises and I can’t wait to get started. Here are the books that found their way to my doorstep/Kindle this week:

Physical books for review:

Some super exciting new books! First up, author Geoffrey Girard was kind enough to offer me an ARC of his upcoming Mary Rose, an adult thriller/ghost story based on the classic tale by J.M. Barrie. Huge thanks, Geoffrey!

With thanks to Pyr, I received a copy of The Nine by Tracy Townsend, a fantasy that revolves around a book (!!). Plus, look at the beautiful cover…

A fantastic surprise arrived from Simon & Schuster, a book I’ve been salivating over but just didn’t get around to requesting. The Glass Town Game by Catherynne M. Valente is middle grade, which I don’t read much of, but I’ll read ANYTHING Valente writes.

One of the best surprises of the week has to be The Punch Escrow by Tal M. Klein! On a whim, I requested this, even though the release date is already past. I knew from several rave reviews that I NEEDED to read this. Huge thanks to Inkshares and Wunderkind PR! I’ll be reading this very soon:-D

And finally, another happy surprise. I had actually requested An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson, but had forgotten all about it, and boy was I surprised when it showed up! Big thanks to Margaret K. McElderry Books, I can’t wait to read this, a YA art-centric fantasy:-D

Digital books for review:

Please take note of the beautiful green palette of my digital book haul this week!

I adored Silvia Moreno-Garcia’s dark vampire tale Certain Dark Things, but I wasn’t convinced that a story of manners was going to do it for me after I had so much fun with her last book. But I received an invitation from the publisher to download The Beautiful Ones from NetGalley, so I figured it was fate:-D Thank you Thomas Dunne!

Several years ago I read Eli K.P. William’s Cash Crash Jubilee and loved it, and I’ve been anxiously awaiting the sequel ever since. Thankfully The Naked World popped up on Edelweiss so I didn’t hesitate to download it. Big thanks to Talos for the review copy!

Finally, I was excited to be approved for Molly Tanzer’s new book, Creatures of Will and Temper. This story takes place in an alternate Victorian London and features demons and fencing (!), and it’s endorsed by Jeff VanderMeer, no less. My only hesitation is that the copy I received can only be read on the diabolical Adobe Reader/Blue Fire readers, but I’m going to make it work. Thanks to Mariner Books!

Let me know if you’re planning on reading any of these books:-D

      I know, right? I’m reading it next after I finish An Alchemy of Masques and Mirrors. There are just too many awesome books out right now, not sure how to read any faster with my crazy life at the moment:-)

    • Tammy

      I hope we love it, Sarah. I have VERY high expectations after my last experience with this author:-)

      I’m very curious about Creatures of Will and Temper, I have Molly Tanzer’s first book but unfortunately I haven’t had time to read it.

    Nice selection. All of these books are new to me, as are all of the authors except for Valente. I’m drawn to The Nine. Love books about books. I may need to search that one out. I really enjoy these book haul posts, thanks much!

      Thanks Todd, glad you stopped by! I’m really excited for The Nine as well, it’s been a while since I read a book about books:-)

    • Tammy

      I love books that are based on other books/stories, so I’m hoping Mary Rose works well. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. I love your green theme. 😀 I’ve heard a lot of good things about An Enchantment of Ravens! I want to read it but at the same time, I’ve heard some things about the ending that make me not want to read it. o_O You will have to let me know how it is! I hope you enjoy all of your new books!

    Have a fabulous week, Tammy. =)

      I haven’t heard that about the ending, but now you’ve got me curious! I’ll let you know…

  3. I loved the Punch Escrow – truly awesome. Can’t wait to read The Beautiful Ones. And, would track you down and steal your copy of An Enchantment of Ravens if I had more time!
    Happy reading.

    I’m very excited for An Enchantment of Ravens! I have this really cool photo idea for it ^_^ and I’m truly sorry if this is disrespectuful to ask but I was wondering if by any chance you’d be up for trading arcs, once you finish of course! or if I could pay for shipping, read it and then I would send it back to you? If not that is okay! Nonetheless I hope you enjoy it! 😀
