Clearing out a few more items off the wishlist backlog. Picked up from Carina:
- Stellarnet Prince, by J.L Hilton. This is book 2 of her series with Carina, and since I liked the first one, I’m proceeding on to the second!
And, picked up from Kobo:
- Gaming for Keeps, by Seleste deLaney. Seleste deLaney is a fellow Carina author, but this is one of her non-Carina releases, and I had to grab this one for being chock full of geekery. The heroine is a gamer and there’s action at a con! Awesome!
- Leviathan Wakes, by James S.A. Corey. SF novel that’s been on my radar for a bit and I grabbed it while it was available for $2.99.
- Six-Gun Snow White, by Catherynne M. Valente. Grabbed this for being generally quite impressed by the excerpt that got posted to tor.com a while back, and because this promises to be one of the more entertaining fairy tale retellings I’ve encountered in a while.
- The Gaslight Dogs, by Karin Lowachee. A fantasy that also has been on my radar for a while, and I wanted to give it a look for a) a pretty neat cover, and b) some alternate-history action going on that featured an Inuit-like culture.
- The Paradise Snare, The Hutt Gambit, and Rebel Dawn, by A.C. Crispin. This is the awesome Han Solo origin story trilogy Crispin did a while back, and while I’ve already got these in paperback–in fact, they’re among the few Star Wars novels I’m keeping in paperback–I wanted them in ebook too. Because they’re just. That. Awesome.
- The Han Solo Adventures, by Brian Daley. Same notation as previous. This is the omnibus edition of the much older Han Solo adventures that Daley did, and which were in turn referenced by Crispin in her works. Great fun.
- Before the Storm, Shield of Lies, and Tyrant’s Test, by Michael P. Kube-McDowell. A Star Wars trilogy I didn’t retain in paperback but which I wanted again in ebook. Liked this one for high Han-related action.
- Still Life, by Louise Penny. Mystery. This is the first of Penny’s series of mysteries set in Quebec, which I want to read for reasons that should be obvious to anybody who’s seen me rhapsodizing about Quebecois trad for more than two seconds in a row. 😉
122 for the year.
