Spoils and Tribute

Spoils and Tribute

Spoils and Tribute is a feature of On Starships and Dragonwings where I tell you about the books I’ve bought and received recently. I promise that I paid for all my spoils and I’m not letting the “tribute” go to my head ;-). This feature was of course inspired by Tynga’s Stacking the Shelves.

I had been resisting buying new books for a while, but then I went to GenCon >.>.

The giant stack of ARCs is what I looted from my friend’s apartment since she regularly needs to purge what she has laying around. I’m just borrowing Into the Still Blue though ;-). I’m super pumped about the cover for The Timber Wolves Trilogy, it’s so pretty :D.

What have you gotten recently?

  1. Nice haul. I need to get Oryx and Crake. Weirdly, I have Year of the Flood, which I bought second hand, and MaddAddam, which I got from a friend who works at Bloomsbury, but I can’t read those until I’ve read Oryx and Crake!

    • I got it for book club this month and haven’t started it yet (D:) but it looks weirdly awesome ;-) That’s not the cover I have, I have the cover with the nakedness haha

  2. Oh my word, what a haul. Loved Doll Bones, happy reading.

  3. INTO THE STILL BLUE. Didn’t know there were already ARCs of it! Looking forward to the early reviews of it. The rest of the books are fantastic! Esp the Holly Black and Brandon Sanderson ones. ;)

    • Yup, at least some are going out! I’m so excited to read Holly Black, I’ve been meaning to for soooo long

  4. I really want to read Into the Still Blue, I love that series! Oryx and Crake is really good but disturbing (although I think all Margaret Atwood books are). Have fun reading!

  5. Your friend is like me. I purged my shelves regularly as I get too many books. Some really good books in your haul this week. Come visit me as well.

    Books of Love

  6. Wow, I’d love to have a friend like yours :D

  7. How THE HECK did she get Into The Still Blue?!?! Oh my gosh.

    • She works at a book store, so that makes publishers happy since she’ll be directly selling books she likes :)

  8. I’m excited for Doll Bones. Amazing haul- I’m so jealous. Feel free to loot for me too, lol. (Kidding, of course).

    My STS.

  9. What a great haul! I can’t wait for The Coldest Girl in Coldtown. The Ward and Burn Out sound super awesome too! I hope you enjoy all of your books. :)

    Happy reading!

    My books

  12. I wish I had a friend that needed occasional purging. Awesome haul!

  13. that is an orgasmically large stack of ARCs!

    I’m still on book-buying probation after overspending in California. so all I got this week was The Darwin Elevator by Jason Hough. but it’s for book club, so it doesn’t count. . . right?

  14. OMG! Is it my eyes or everything just went books? Lovely lovely haul. Hope you still have time to sleep with all of those.

  15. READ WHITE CAT! Sorry about the all-caps, but that series is amazing! I’m also very jealous of your ARC of The Coldest Girl in Coldtown :)

    Ummmm dang! I need me some friends like that! And haha, you bought the Grumpy Cat book. I can’t believe that’s even a book. Hope you enjoy it though ;)

    • Yes, grumpy cat! I love the twitter account and spotted it in the store >.> It was entertaining for like 20 minutes ;-)

  17. Wow! What an awesome haul or all those arcs! Makes me wish even more I had a friend nearby who loves reading to swap with! Enjoy and Happy Reading!
    Here are my newest additions.

  18. haha the grumpy cat book looks pretty sweet :D And seriously what a brilliant haul! Congrats on all the goodies! White Cat, Flame in the Mist, Into the Still Blue, Doll Bones AND the Ward are all on my wishlist! I did get a copy of Coldest Girl in Coldtown at BEA and it should be my very next read ;) Hope you LOVE all of these!
