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 ;-).

Hi all! Apparently Spoils and Tribute is going to be an every other week thing, hehe. So I ended up spending a bit more money than planned this past two weeks because there were new releases and signings and how am I supposed to resist??? I am now once again a bit overwhelmed with books to read, but that’s a perpetual thing right? ;-)


Spoils and Tribute: Codex Born Spoils and Tribute Full-Blooded These Broken Stars

I am trying hard to avoid NetGalley since I already have a lot of eBooks to read, but I couldn’t resist Full-Blooded and These Broken Stars, so pretty! I read a short by Amanda Carlson last year, so I’m excited to read the full novel. Plus, These Broken Stars isn’t released until December, plenty of time right :D. I was super excited to get Codex Born in the mail, thank you so much DAW! Finally, that stack consists of ARCs that my friend received and doesn’t have time to read, so I got them :D.


Signed Libriomancer Signed Codex Born Signed Stepsister's Scheme Magic Rises

Magic Rises released last week and I LOVE Ilona Andrews so I had to pick up a copy of that which I am currently reading :D. Also to go along with the release of Codex Born, Jim C. Hines was in town for a signing. I had borrowed a copy of Libriomancer from the library last year, so I figured it was time to get my own copy and get it signed! The other two are gifts for friends and family because they don’t live close enough to go to the event ;-). Am I nice or what??

Fortunately that’s it for this week, otherwise I’d probably be flailing under the weight of new books! What have you gotten recently??

  3. I loved signed copies, nice haul this week and I hope you enjoy them all!

    • I am becoming more and more obsessed with signed copies, haha. Previously I didn’t really get what they were about, but now I’m loving them as a representation of the memory of meeting that awesome author!

  4. Great haul! I still need to start Ilona Andrews’ series :/ These Broken Stars looks interesting too, I look forward to your review.
