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 ;-). S&T is inspired by Tynga’s Stacking the Shelves!
So my picture taking for the past couple weeks has failed a bit because I didn’t remember to separate things out >.> Therefore these pictures will be mostly accurate as to which I got for review and which I bought, but there will be a couple exceptions to explain ;-). I once again got to raid my friend’s excess ARC pile, so there are a couple here that I’m really excited about :D. That also means watch for some awesome giveaways in the near future, ie as soon as I finish the books ;-).
My goodie package from the Summer Mermaid Challenge arrived from Liesel and it’s soooo cute! :D Don’t mind me while I go rewatch The Little Mermaid >.>. Also my review copy of Pawn arrived *happy dance* sorry the picture is so dark though D:. Also, yes that is an ARC of Cress that I snagged from my friend’s pile and yes I will be giving it away as soon as I finish it! Prophecy and Ashes to Ashes both snuck into this picture because they are in the read soon pile, but they are older ARCs snagged from friend’s house ;-), along with Bang!
I also got a bunch of electronic review copies this past week (like literally Bloomsbury just went and approved 3 that had been sitting there for days >.>). Quantum Entanglement is the second in Liesel’s Interchron series, yey! Then all the rest are NetGalley approvals, thank you everyone!!
Eeeee, lots of ARCs from friend of awesome, including a second copy of Bang (I traded for one, but it was taking a long time, so I borrowed a copy and now I have two, so one to giveaway :D). I also traded for Tandem and am so excited that it arrived! It’s still pending on NetGalley *sigh*. I also HAD to buy a final copy of Kinslayer to match my Stormdancer. I honestly didn’t like the cover when it was revealed, but now I luuuuuurve it! Shatter Me, The Alchemyst, and Trickster’s Queen were all used and Shatter Me was only $2!! I love my library book sales! Then there is the stack of ARCs that I nabbed including some very exciting 2014 releases which I will also be giving away as soon as I finish them, have no fear :).
Oh my, that’s a lot of books. I have my schedule all planned out though, so I should be able to make it all fit! What have you gotten recently?
