Book Haul - Bennett, North, Bernardo, Malki !, Erikson, Gafla, Posey, Salvatore, Kemp, Sullivan, Lynch

While I'm looking forward the the physical books this week, I'm extremely excited for the ebooks. One in particular...


Star Trek: Enterprise: Rise of the Federation: A Choice of Futures by Chistopher L. Bennett

This is How You Die: Stories of the Inscrutable, Infallible, Inescapable Machine of Death, edited by Ryan North, Matthew Bernardo, David Malki ! - This is the follow up to the Machine of Death anthology which I enjoyed but never finished. I just felt like this concept was ... done to death. I read the first story and again it was good, but I just can't handle another batch of stories like this.

This River Awakens by Steven Erikson - This is Erikson's first novel that's being released for the first time in the US. Very much looking forward to it.

The World of the End by Ofir Touche Gafla - This is really an odd book that I'm about 30% through. I don't know if I like it yet, but it's certainly unique and compelling. There are a couple giveaways I listed on the other blog here.

eBooks:
Three by Jay Posey - I have to say it's about 99% cover that makes me want to read this. Plus you usually can't go wrong with Angry Robot.

The Companions (The Sundering #1)by R.A Salvatore - A Forgotten Realms event called The Sundering starts with their most famous author.










The Godborn (The Sundering #2) by Paul S. Kemp - Part of the event above, but number two.











The Crown Tower (Riyria Chronicles #1) by Michael J. Sullivan - The first in a two book prequel series to Sullivan's excellent Riyria Revelations.










The Rose and Thorn (Riyria Chronicles #2) by Michael J. Sullivan - The second.











The Republic of Thieves (Gentlemen Bastards #3) by Scott Lynch - Only the most anticipated book of the year if not the last couple years. Very happy to have this, I guess it's time to start Red Seas Under Red Skies since I waited until this was a sure thing before I would start RSURS.

  1. Three by Jay Posey is on my list too. Hopefully the book is as good as the cover.

    I ordered copies of The Crown Tower (Riyria Chronicles #1) by Michael J. Sullivan and The Rose and Thorn (Riyria Chronicles #2) by Michael J. Sullivan in advance.

    Like you I still need to read Red Seas Under Red Skies. The Republic of Thieves (Gentlemen Bastards #3) by Scott Lynch is on my list.

    Now I need more time for reading .....

  2. Yes, yes, and yes! The great problem of the bibliophile. That or reading faster and at this point in my life I don't think it'll change. :)

  3. Looks like you and I pretty much got the same ebooks these past few weeks. :) There are quite a few that I'm looking forward to sinking my teeth into.

    And yeah, The World of the End does sound odd, but from everything I hear, it's a really satisfying book. I'm quite curious about it myself.

  4. I just gave up on The World of the End. You'll probably like it, but it was really depressing for me.
