Spoils and Tribute is a feature of On Starships and Dragonwings where I tell you about the books I’ve bought and received recently (my version of Stacking the Shelves). I promise that I paid for all my spoils and I’m not letting the “tribute” go to my head ;-). Planning to pillage is just my version of Waiting on Wednesday where I share books that have caught my eye!
Hello everyone! This is going to be the books that I got over the last couple of weeks, not including what I got from BEA (you can find those in my BEA wrap-up post). I’m a little overwhelmed to be adding more awesome books to the BEA haul, but for several weeks, this isn’t too bad ;-).
Trial by Fire by Josephine Angelini (Macmillan, solicited) – I didn’t pick this one up at BEA, so it was really exciting to get a pretty box with an ARC inside when I got home! I couldn’t resist including the box *pets*.
Rebel Nation by Shaunta Grimes (Berkley Trade, unsolicited) – I haven’t read the first book of this series, but it looks awesome. Thoughts?
The Dark Between the Stars by Kevin J. Anderson (Tor, unsolicited) – I’m slightly overwhelmed by the size of this one! Looks like it is the first in a spin-off series perhaps? Anyone read the previous books?
Robert A. Heinlein: In Dialogue with His Century Vol. 2 by William H. Patterson Jr. (Tor, unsolicited) – While I recognize the problems with a lot of Heinlein’s work, he was a huge influence on me in my budding sci-fi love. Therefore, I’m excited and will probably page through this one even though I won’t be able to read all of it!
Rain by Amanda Sun (HarlequinTeen, NetGalley) – I quite enjoyed the first book despite it’s faults (illustrations!), so I’m really excited to have been approved (and then got auto-approved, woohoo!). I checked already, the illustrations are in the eARC; I’m pumped.
The Ultra Thin Man by Patrick Swenson (Tor, NetGalley) – I got an email invite to this one and Ark Storm, and since I had planned to pillage this months ago, so of course I had to download it immediately! Sci-fi mystery thriller, yey!
Ark Storm by Linda Davies (Tor, NetGalley) – Climate change sci-fi? I’m hooked!
Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas (Bloomsbury, NetGalley) – I of course had requested this one on NetGalley as soon as I saw it up there and then was approved after I got back from BEA. This means that I’ll be able to giveaway my signed ARC ;-).
Stitching Snow by R. C. Lewis (Disney, NetGalley) – I’m really excited about this one, and since I got approved after picking up a physical copy, this will be perfect for another giveaway!
Gasp by Lisa McMann came out last week and I’m pretty obsessed with this series. I have already read it and it was wonderful. Also the cover is shiny in person, soooooo preeeeeetty!
Planning to Pillage
(i.e. new to the wishlist)
Captive by Aimee Carter just got its cover and I’m swooning. I really enjoyed Pawn, so don’t mind me while I hop around a bit and obsessively refresh NetGalley >.>.
A recurring catastrophe that periodically destroys nations? This fantasy sounds so amazing, Angry Robot let me love you!
I am forever holding out for an underwater-themed book that is amazing. Atlantia sounds pretty creepy, so I have hope :D.
What have you gotten recently? What are you looking forward to?
