Lootz: Mogsy’s Book Haul

Welcome to this biweekly feature where I showcase all the books I bought/won/received for review in the past fortnight. First, the physical pile:

book haul 10

The Turning Season – this was a surprise arrival from Penguin, and when I looked it up afterwards I learned that it is the third book of the Shifting Circle series. While I don’t usually jump on board a series midway especially on an unsolicited book,  I might actually make an exception for this one if it turns out I can read this without getting hopelessly lost, since Sharon Shinn’s one of those authors I’ve always wanted to check out. Let me know if you’ve read this series, I’d love to hear your input.

Another One Bites the Dust – this was the only review book this week that I specifically requested. I read the first book Only the Good Die Young earlier this year and was delighted to see it was the beginning of a new urban fantasy series starring a ghost protagonist. That’s not something you see everyday, and I was very interested in continuing. My thanks to Penguin.

A Play of Shadow – when this one showed up in the mail, I was reminded that I still need to read the first book A Turn of Light! I best get to it soon. My thanks to Penguin again.

Covenant’s End – I was so excited to see this ARC arrive from Pyr Books a couple weeks ago! I love this series, and Covenant’s End is apparently the fourth and final book. I’m so looking forward to the conclusion of Widdershins’ adventures, and I’ve already heard from the publicist that the ending is pretty amazing.

Insignia and The Iron Trial – My thanks to Tabitha from NotYetRead for sending me her extra ARCs of these YA books! I’m really interested in reading them, especially The Iron Trial because I’ve always been curious about both Cassandra Clare and Holly Black’s writing, and here I get a twofer!

And now the digital ebooks/audiobooks pile, which is mercifully small this week:

Daughter of the Forest  Sixth of the Dusk

Daughter of the Forest – looks like Audible got me again with one of their sales, this time with their Start A New Series promotion. I saw this one in the list and didn’t even hesitate. I’m currently reading Marillier’s upcoming novel Dreamer’s Pool and I’m LOVING IT!!! It’s definitely made me curious about her other books.

Sixth of the Dusk – grabbed this the other day, because even Brandon Sanderson’s short stories and novellas are amazing reads. This one was actually part of an already published anthology, but nonetheless I was glad to be able to grab it on its own for a couple of bucks.

  1. And…no green eyes from me this week. The only ones I am interested in are later books in series I haven’t started yet. Dreamer’s Pool on the other hand…

  3. I have a copy of A Turn of Light, but it’s scaring me because it’s so long. I imagine the second one is a big book too, but it’s hard to tell from the photo. Awesome pile, enjoy:-)

  4. You got some good books! I love Sharon Shinn, but I haven’t read this series. I’m going to check out the Chris Marie Green books. I like to find new urban fantasies.

  5. I like Sharon Shinn’s angel books and I haven’t often heard of a ghost protagonist. That’s nice that you got some extra arcs. I really liked the Iron Trial. The middle is slow, but the end so makes up for it!

    Book sales always get me too. I keep meaning to read Sanderson, but I’m hesitant to start such a long epic fantasy while I’m reading books to review. Nice haul!
