My schedule is a bit off this week because I need to catch up on review writing, so have a book haul post instead! 😀
Wow, it’s been a while since I’ve done a book haul post that was a regular book haul and not for some special event. So buckle up, cuz I’ve got a lot of books to highlight!
Physical Copies Received for Review
Thanks so much to Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers for sending me Slow Burn by Tommy Wallach, and The Becoming of Noah Shaw by Michelle Hodkin. These look like interesting reads and I’m looking forward to getting into them!
Thanks also to Simon Pulse for sending me This Cruel Design by Emily Suvada. I’ve actually been meaning to check out the first book in this series, and I guess now I have more reason to bump it up on my list! (Also, that cover is amazing.)
Many thanks to Delacorte Press for sending me a copy of Stronger, Faster, and More Beautiful by Arwen Elys Dayton. This was such a lovely surprise, and I can’t wait to dig in!
Last but certainly not least, thanks to the folks at Wunderkind PR and Saga Press for sending me a copy of Mage Against the Machine by Shaun Barger. I’ve just started reading this one and I already have thoughts, so look for my review to come in the next week or two. 🙂
eARC’s Received for Review
I have one lone eARC that I’ve received since last time (this is because I’ve really slowed down my requests! I know some people have piles of eARC’s to get through, but I only have three outstanding at the moment and I already feel like that’s too many, haha.) I’ve actually already read this since I’ve gotten the copy, and it’s a very cute, very YA book featuring the offspring of Greek gods and godesses as they fumble about trying to learn their way in their world, and ours. Look forward to my full review to come at some point! Many thanks to Netgalley and the folks at Flux for providing this copy of Lovestruck by Kate Watson for review!
Books I’ve Won!
I’ve won two different books recently! This has to be some kind of record, because I usually never win anything! Thanks so much to the folks at Pyr for the copy of No Sleep till Doomsday by Laurence MacNaughton and also a big thanks to Lynn over at Lynn’s Book Blog for hosting the giveaway! Looking forward to checking out this series!
The second book I won is a non-fiction book, I Might Regret This: Essays, Drawings, Vulnerabilities, and Other Stuff by Abbi Jacobson. I’m very excited about this one because my husband and I are both Broad City fans, and Abbi actually went to school here in Baltimore at MICA, so I think this will be a pretty interesting read. I’ve already glanced through it a bit and her sketches are fabulous. Many thanks to Jennifer at Tar Heel Reader for hosting this giveaway, and to the publisher Grand Central Publishing for sponsoring the giveaway!
I haven’t bought any other physical books other than things I’ve gotten at special events or that one massive haul at my friend’s shop that I got super cheap, so I’m pretty proud of myself in that regard (next year is going to be hell on my wallet though, hahaha….). What I have bought though, is loads of ebooks and audibooks. I can’t help it….there’s so many sales this time of year! I’m susceptible to sales!

19 thoughts on “New Arrivals!”
Wow, awesome haul! I read a Tommy Wallach book a few years ago (We All Looked Up) and it was really good, not my normal read, but fun. I’ve been hearing “interesting” things about Mage Against the Machine, so I’m curious to hear what you think. I also have a copy.
I haven’t read anything by Wallach before so looking forward to it. I have also heard interesting things about that one, so we’ll see. 🙂
So many amazing books! I can’t wait to see your thoughts on all of them!
It may take me a while to get to some of them. 🙂
I just picked up Empire of Sand also! I may read it soon.
It was such a good deal and I’ve been looking forward to it!
What a haul, Lisa! Yay! And I’m so happy you are excited about I Might Regret This. I love all your connections to it- surely that will make for a wonderful read. I hope you enjoy! ♥️
I got a bit carried away as usual 🙂
Thanks, Jennifer! I think it’s going to be a fun read.
I see someone took advantage of the Orbit sale! 😉 Spellslinger is high on my list to pick up next year, a lot of people really seem to enjoy that!
Haha, definitely. That Orbit sale was hard to resist! Spellslinger was fun, I should have a review of that coming up soon.
What an amazing haul! Looking forward to compare notes on Mage Against the Machine, and I’m doing a happy dance because I see Spellslinger in there!
I’ll definitely be posting my thoughts on Mage once I’m done. I read Spellslinger already but have been super behind in reviews, whoops! It was fun though, hoping to catch up with the rest of them next year some time. 🙂
wow what an incredible haul! Lovestruck sounds so great!! Hope you like kingdom of ash and shadow of the fox. And empire of sand and sisters of the winter wood sound great.
I listened to Shadow of the Fox already and really loved it! Hopefully I’ll have a review up soon. 🙂
READ THIS MORTAL COIL NOW PLEASE DO IT OMG
Whew. Okay now that I have gotten that out of the way… great haul & happy reading! (This Mortal Coil first)
Haha, ok. I will pick up a copy in audio since I just got my new credits in. 🙂
Wow – I don’t even know where to start with this haul! I feel exhausted and overwhelmed almost just looking at them all. Hope you love them all – hope you find a time machine too or a time turner – so that you can fit them all in 😀
Hah! Believe me, I have wished for a time turner many many times lol! I am fully aware I have a book acquisition problem, I just can’t help myself. I hope I get a chance to read all of these but we’ll see. 🙂
