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 ;-).

New feature time :D. I love those blogs that have features based off of their blog theme, so I decided to put a twist on the Mailbox type updates to fit my love of dragons ;-). Dragons go out and pillage, bringing back spoils right? And nervous villagers totally pay tribute to the local dragon to not pillage their town sometimes right?? Well, I’m equating pillaging to book buying and tribute to awesome books I get in the mail, ta-da!


The Hatching The Weight of Souls The Deepest Night Elysian Fields The Kingdom of Little Wounds The Republic of Thieves

This is several weeks to several months (I can’t remember, haha) of review books fortunately. I was very excited to realize that Liesel Hill has a short story about dragons, so I had to request a review copy of that! I’ve been going a little crazy on NetGalley and really need to work on researching books more before requesting them…. The Kingdom of Little Wounds is apparently graphically violent so I’m a little bit worried about reading that one…. I also somehow missed that The Republic of Thieves is a third book, so I’ll be getting the first two (finally, yey) to read as well.


Glitch Incarnate The Sweetest Dark River Road

I got a used book discount coupon, and hence had to get Glitch and Incarnate when I found them in the used section :D. I also needed to get a couple pre-ARC books because of that problem mentioned about getting sequels to review…. So I purchased The Sweetest Dark and River Road to get me caught up in order to read the ARCs above *sigh*. This is a strange new habit I’ve run into, but it also means that I get to read series that I had wanted to, but didn’t have time for because of review books :D.

What have you gotten recently?

  1. LOVE the new feature name Anya ♥ I’ve been thinking about renaming mine to match my theme/design for a while now but I can’t come up with anything good >.< heh! As for the actual Spoils & Tribute…I've got Kingdom of Little Wounds too – it sounds pretty amazing doesn't it? And that cover is sweet! Oh and Incarnate!! That's one of those books that's been on my wishlist for WAY too long ;) Congrats on all of these books & enjoy!

  2. Weight of Souls – I have it as well – I hope it is good!

  3. The Spoils and Tribute name for this meme is too adorable! I love it. ^_^

  4. I too have requested a review copy of Republic of Thieves. I am still waiting to hear from Netgalley. Patience is a virtue, right?

    Looking forward to your thoughts on The Hatching.

  5. Nice feature. I like the look of The Kingdom of Little Wounds (I’m a Game of Thrones fan, I’m used to violence) – I’ll keep an eye out for your review.

    • Thanks :D Kingdom of Little Wounds has such a pretty cover, I’m hoping that the one warning review I saw was overly sensitive, but now I’m all worried, haha.

  6. Scott Lynch is awesome, and you should definitely read the first two books. They’re hard to put down.

  7. I love this feature, especially making it fit your blog theme! Also some awesome looking books there, I hope to read Incarnate soon for a book club :)

    • Aw, thanks :D There was a lot of thesaurus-ing in a restaurant with my friend to come up with it, haha
