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 11

Radiant – I’ve heard great things about this book. My thanks to Talos Press/Skyhorse Publishing for sending this one along, I’m reading this now and pretty excited to be able to feature it for sci-fi month.

Touch – A surprise arrival from Orbit, I knew nothing about this book when I got it other than the fact the author Claire North is also the author of The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August released earlier this year. Looks interesting!

The City Stained Red – Courtesy of Orbit, I was also really excited to receive an ARC of this book. The print edition isn’t coming out until early next year but of course you can get the ebook now, which I also did for $1.99 (hope it’s still that price at the moment!) which is an awesome deal, obviously!

Your Servants and Your People – From Jo Fletcher Book, I received this sequel to last year’s Your Brother’s Blood by David Towsey. Yay for zombie westerns! I really enjoyed the first book, so I’m really looking forward to continuing with The Walkin’ Trilogy. My thanks to the publisher.

Willful Child – Courtesy of Tor, you might have already seen my review of this one earlier in the week. I loved this hilarious Star Trek spoof that also pokes fun at a bunch of sci-fi and pop culture tropes.

The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and Other Stories – I won this classic as part of a Halloween themed giveaway hosted by Beauty in Ruins!

Tainted Blood – As you know, I adore the Generation V series and had a blast with this book. I’ve got my finished copy now! My internet handle is also immortalized within its pages. Even-tempered and bred to herd/kill lions, that’s how M.L. Brennan thinks of me, RAWRRR!

And now the digital pile. I broke 90% on my NetGalley stats last week, so of course I did the reckless thing and went on a requesting spree.

The Eterna Files  UnbreakableHorrorstor  Tarkin   The Garden of Stones Thorn Jack

The Eterna Files – From NetGalley. This had been on my watch list, so I didn’t hesitate to request.

Unbreakable – Maybe I’ve just got sci-fi on the brain now, but the more I learned about this book, the better it looked! Also from NetGalley.

Horrorstor – NetGalley again, and Quirk Books auto-approved me! I’ve heard such great things about this book. I missed my chance before release, so when I saw this up I jumped on it right away.

Tarkin – From NetGalley earlier last week when I got my stats up and felt confident enough to request again. I want to make a stronger effort to keep up with Star Wars novels now, and I really enjoyed Luceno’s last Star Wars “villain” book Darth Plagueis so I have high hopes for this.

The Garden of Stones – Kindle deal! Several bloggers I know have had great things to say about this series, so I couldn’t resist. Also will pick up the audiobook via Whispersync.

Thorn Jack – Harper Collins had (or still has?) a pretty good ebook sale going on, and I decided to pick up this Young Adult novel in the re-imagining genre which I’ve had my eye on for a while.

  1. The Garden of Stones is an absolute favorite. It took me the first two books of that trilogy to decide who I even wanted to root for, the characters are so grey.


  2. Even now that I’ve gone almost completely digital for my reading (it saves space and allows for instant access to interesting titles), it feels good to… well, *gloat* over a pile of books, anticipating the contents and the fun to be found in there.

    Oh and… “zombie western”??? That sounds interesting!!! 🙂
