Book Haul - Star Trek Crafts, Foster, Card/Johnston

This first batch of the haul is probably the strangest (and yet still awesome) thing I've ever received for review. I can't say I have much use for them, especially the cross-stitching one, but I don't think a true fan could live without these:

- Star Trek Cross-Stitch: Explore Strange New Worlds of Crafting ($13.50)
- Star Trek Craft Book: Make it so! ($13.36)

Next, we're keeping with the Star Trek theme... for some reason I can't quite put my finger on.

- Earth Afire (The First Formic War #2) by Orson Scott Card and Aaron Johnston
- Star Trek: Into Darkness by Alan Dean Foster - I don't usually go for movie novelizations, but this one does look really cool and the first few pages made it really hard to put down.

Book Haul - Scalzi, Walton, Sanderson, McClellan

I can't deny, I was pretty excited about this week's haul. Tor just keeps 'em coming and a surprise from Orbit that I didn't think was coming.

- The Human Division by John Scalzi - This is the hardback in addition to the ARC you can see in the background
- Quintessence by David Walton - Usually I have to make a request from Tor, but sometimes books just show up and this is one of the latter. This is also never a bad thing. :)
- The Rithmatist by Brandon Sanderson - Very excited for this one!
- Promise of Blood by Brian McClellan - I just finished this one and needs a review. Very good.
