Sci Fi & Fantasy mini book haul

Yes I bought more books!

Yes I am on a Sci Fi/Fantasy kick right now!

Yes one of them is a hardback copy which I try to avoid buying at all cost! But can you blame me, its bloody stonkingly gorgeous, don’t you agree?

If this post is quite short its because we in the UK are currently suffering a massive heatwave and I am literally a puddle of goo on the floor so, you’ll excuse me wont you if I don’t spend too long typing on a warm laptop!

I bought the Jy Yang book because virtually everyone on BookTube had hauled it and raved about it and the opening chapter so amazing so I have high hopes for this.

The Marie Lu and Jason Segel books just speak for themselves really, I loved Ready Player One (well what I read of it which was quite a bit) and these are meant to be very similar but I’m sure have a style of their own at the same time.

The Becky Chambers’ book was one I just couldn’t ignore despite it being a hardback. I am currently reading her first book, The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet and also have her second book to read too so now I can indulge myself with all this gorgeous Sci Fi.

Don’t they make such a beautiful line up?

another book haul

Yes, another week, another pile of books is accumulated

*sigh*

*big smile*

here they be:

books i did buy for me

Yes, its true i have the two Isabel Greenberg graphic novels, at last, in my life and in my hot little hands *dances for joy*

I treated myself using gift vouchers i was kindly given for Crimbo.  Aren’t they bloody gorgeous? Oh yes they are!

Also i buyed me these

Yes, you’re right what am i doing buying 4 sci fi books when i dont read sci fi?

Well thats a good question but somehow i just fancied me some so Space type books and as im reading (slowly) The long way to a small angry planet it seemed sensible to buy the sequel.  Mind you I am annoyed with myself that i didnt notice it was only out in hardback *waves fist in air*

and now for some books i was kindlee sent by those sooper dooper publishy types

I was approached by Quercus who asked if id like a copy of Hattie Hoffman and after doing a bit of detective work on Amazon i said “yes please”  It is written from perspective of three characters in the first person so whats not to like there?

I responded to a blogger call on Twitter for a copy of Spontaneous which sounds rather unusual to say the least. (people spontaneously combusting, but humourously?) so thank Canongate books, i think!

and finally I was sent Skintown completely unsolicited by W5 books (Johnathan & Hannah) and Doubleday.  There is no way I would ever buy this for myself, its way out of the old comfort zone but a tiny bit i read is very funny and has whetted the old appetite for more, so who knows eh?  Its written by an actor dont you know?  Ciaran McMenamin was in Primeval which i used to watch until it became so barmy only a brain dead amoeba could follow it.

So there we have it, what larks eh?
