I guarantee that your TBR pile will grow when you see all the cool books everyone gets. You will discover lots of wonderful blogs and lots of books that you won't be able to live without.
This was another good week for me.
I finally received my print copy of Cryoburn by Lois McMaster Bujold. This one also includes a CD-ROM that has all the previous Vorkosigan novels and all sorts of other information too. Quite a deal for just $13.99. I read the eARC in August and am very tempted to read the print version again. Bujold is one of those authors that I can read again and again. Each time I'm swept into the world and see something I didn't see on any previous reading.
Weight of Stone by Laura Anne Gilman is the second in the Vinehart War series. I enjoyed the first book even though I have no knowledge of or interest in wine making and want to make time soon to read this one. I am fascinated by the system of magic Gilman has created for these books.
I received an ARC of Eternal Hunger by Laura Wright from the LibraryThing Early Reviewers program. I am reading it now and finding it very good. It is the first in a new series of urban fantasy/paranormal romance by this debut author.
I also went shopping at the Kindle Store for free books and added a few.
Chinatown Beat by Henry Chang is the first in the Detective Jack Yu series of mysteries. It sounded like it would be something different. I like visiting places I would never otherwise see when I read. New York's Chinatown is one of those places.
The 7th Victim by Alan Jacobson is a psychological thriller that got mixed reviews. It sounded like another change-of-pace book for me.
Sandman Slim by Richard Kadrey was free when I downloaded it but now I see that it is priced at $7.99 again. But look around, the free version with bonus content is still available. This is a noir thriller that is supposed to be over the top and funny.
The Bite Before Christmas by Heidi Betts was also free but now is listed for $8.96. It contains three Christmas themed vampire stories.
The Ghost Shrink, The Accidental Gigolo and The Poltergeist Accountant by Vivi Andrews. I love the warning: Warning: This book contains cheesy pick-up lines, amateur stripteases, and voyeuristic intentions – all by dead men. And the living behave just as badly…
I was also lucky enough to win these two ebooks in a contest at Chrissie's Corner. I was pleased to add them to my Kindle too. Both are by H. P. Mallory - Fire Burn & Cauldron Bubble and To Kill a Warlock. The covers make them look like light paranormals but the book descriptions on Amazon don't sound that way. I'm eager to see what the books are really like.
That was my week. What did you get in your mailbox? While you are here don't forget to enter my ARC Giveaway. This contest to clean my shelf of ARCs ends on 10/31.
