Lootz: Mogsy’s Book Haul
Sneaking in my last book haul post of the year, and here is a look at the review books that came in the last couple of weeks. There are some goodies in here that I’m very excited about! It’s like Christmas in Decembe–oh wait.
Superposition – I’ve never read any David Walton, but he had a book called Quintessence come out last year that kinda caught my eye. So it’s no wonder the author sounded familiar to me when this book showed up in the mail. It looks like it’ll be the start of an intriguing new series coming out next year, published by Pyr. My thanks to the publisher for sending me the ARC.
The Mechanical – I was floored when a mystery package arrived from Orbit and when I opened it, this ARC was in it. OMG I’m a big fan of Ian Tregillis, and The Mechanical has been on my wishlist ever since I found out about it. My thanks to Orbit, I love it when you guys surprise me like this!
The Voyage of the Basilisk – And speaking of being excited, my heart probably skipped a beat when I saw Tor had sent me an advanced reading copy of this. If you haven’t read the Memoir by Lady Trent books, know that they are awesome and I highly recommend them. I can’t wait to dig into this one.
Half-Resurrection Blues – This new urban fantasy by Daniel José Older looks AWESOME. From other bloggers I learned that he has a new Young Adult novel coming out next year too, but it is Half-Resurrection Blues that caught my attention as soon as I saw the description. In early January I’ll be hosting a US giveaway for this book, so definitely keep an eye out for that. My thanks to the publisher for providing a review copy.
The Witches of Echo Park – Another review book courtesy of Penguin, I’m reading this one right now and it’s quite interesting. It was a bit slow to start, but the story is shaping up. Looking forward to seeing where things will go.
Sleepy Hollow: Children of the Revolution – A book from LibraryThing’s Early Reviewers program which I won back in August but it only arrived this month. I’ve actually never watched the show, and truthfully I don’t watch that much TV at all, but I do see previews for it all the time when I catch up with my DVR’ed episodes of Gotham! I’ve heard great things, maybe I’ll check it out one day if I read this and enjoy it.
The digital pile:
A Crown for Cold Silver – Orbit is going to have an amazing 2015. I’ve heard only great things about this book from folks who got an early look. It’s been compared to Abercrombie and other grimdark authors, so if you like gritty stories and dark humor it might be a good idea to take note of this one. Can’t wait to read it!
Son of the Shadows and Child of the Prophecy – Ever since reading Dreamer’s Pool by Juliet Marillier I’ve been asking myself why I took so long to read a book by her. I vowed I was going to go back and read her older stuff and I’m actually following through on that. I’ve had Daughter of the Forest on my TBR forever, after all, and so now I’m finally listening to the audiobook. Anyway, not even a third of the way into it and I’m already in love. You can see how much I’m enjoying myself, since I didn’t even hesitate to pick up the audiobooks of these books as well, books 2 and 3 of the Sevenwaters series so I won’t have to wait at all if I want to continue.
