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 ;-). Planning to pillage is just my version of Waiting on Wednesday where I share books that have caught my eye!
I’m trying out a suggestion from a couple of you and going back to splitting the weekly wrap-up into two posts. In an effort to round out Spoils and Tribute, I’m going to try attaching Planning to Pillage on as well. Thoughts?
I had an exciting week for packages (when it rains, it pours right??) and also gifts :D.
The Door (solicited from Scholastic) – I snagged an ARC of this one earlier, so this is actually a duplicate, but I’m happy to read the finished copy now!
Mirror Sight (unsolicited from Penguin) – This series looks so cool, but it is the fifth book and I haven’t read the first four and have you seen that page count?! Anyone read this series?
The Falconer (giveaway from LibraryThing) – I have this one as an eARC already, but I’m excited to have won a physical copy! It looks so cool and pretty :D.
Earth Star (solicited from Pyr) – I mentioned I was interested in this one a while ago, read the first one and submitted that review, and didn’t actually hear back for a while, so I wasn’t sure if I’d be getting a copy, haha. Fortunately, the lovely people at Pyr are awesome and now I get to read about aliens!
In the Shadows (solicited from Scholastic) – I was very excited to get a copy of In the Shadows earlier this week since I love Kiersten White’s writing. And then I was surprised when a second copy showed up shortly after! I’m smelling a giveaway ;-).
Sorrow’s Knot – I met up with the lovely Pabkins of Not Yet Read this weekend and she handed me this one <3. I’ve been hearing awesome things so I’m glad to be slightly closer to getting to read it, haha.
Rebel Belle – There was a signing in Pabkins area last week and she snagged me a copy and got it signed :D
I’ll be honest, I didn’t realize this was a fantasy! But now I’m excited ;-).
I had a bit of book therapy this week after working late most nights to get a final project done. Therefore, I of course had to by Dreams of Gods and Monsters and Horizon since they both came out :D. I also noticed that Storm had signed copies so I snagged one ;-).
Planning to Pillage
I haven’t actually read Scorched yet, but it is about dragons and sounds cool so I’m excited that book two has a cover!
More about the Mercy Thompson world?????? Sold!
What have you gotten recently? What are you looking forward to?
