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!
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.
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.
