Welcome to May, one of my favorite months. To usher it in, please enjoy this stack of new books and ARCs. See something here you’d consider adding to your own shelves? Tell us about it in the comments.
Reblogged this on vaesherry's Blog.
I will absolutely be checking out Naomi Novik’s “Uprooted,” once I finally finish off the Temeraire series.
Crown for Cold Silver has an interesting premise, but the Mieville’s title has to be the best.
New Bernie Rhodenbarr story now in paper from Lawrence Block. Huzzah!
Another one I’ve read! THE BURGLAR WHO COUNTED THE SPOONS is a very enjoyable read, though not sff at all.
I read an excerpt of UPROOTED, and while I lost interest in the Temeraire books, I’ve got this one on hold at the library to check out. Looks like fun.
I’m looking forward to Uprooted by Naomi Novik!
Uprooted and A Crown for Cold Silver are already on my mental TBR list.
Mother of Eden looks interesting. Beckett’s Dark Eden won the UK’s Arthur C Clarke award for best novel in 2013, and I have been looking forward to the sequel.
With new stuff by Mieville and Novik among others this is a really good stack.
Bernie!!! I love Lawrence Block, and I’m so happy to see SPOONS in print.
I’ll check out the Novik and the Block, and at least I know who Birmingham and Mieville are (and have sampled their work, though I didn’t like either enough to buy them regularly). That’s considerably more than I average among your ARCs.
I already have A Crown for Cold Silver on my goodreads list. And now I need to go read up on “The Dead House” to see if it needs a spot on my shelves next to House of Leaves.
Thank you! The ARC for 2015 Young Explorer’s Adventure Guide is reminding me I bought the eBook to see if I wanted to give it to young relatives as a gift. Re-downloading on my nook app.
Uprooted! The swag bag at C2E2 was for that, and I’ve been dying to read it anyway. I cannot wait.
A China Mieville! Woo-hoo.
Anything by Block = YAY!!!
The Burglar that Counted the Spoons sounds like it might be up my alley. That’s just going on the title…
A CROWN FOR COLD SILVER interests me.
I’m baffled that Amazon incorrectly lists UPROOTED (which doesn’t interest me) as being in the Temeraire series.
The top five all sound fun!
Holy moley, Lawrence Block is still churning out The Crook Who… books?! I haven’t read one of those since I was a teen. (That is a way longer time ago than you may think, alas.)
New Naomi Novik!!! YAY!!!!
THE DEAD HOUSE is the debut novel of Dawn Kurtagich, who is a terrific person! I’ve been following her journey to publication on Twitter and Instagram. I’m greatly looking forward to her book!
Naomi Novik and China Mieville er both authors that I’ve been meaning to try out, but I really need to know about The burglar who counted the spoons. There’s no way I’d be able to pass by a book with that tile, in a bookshop, without at least looking at it.
A new Bernie Rhodenbarr! And China Miéville always has something interesting to offer.
The Birmingham is a huge ton of fun. And nice to see a new Mieville on the way.
(now, Mr. Block, can we have a new Scudder?)
I was all “The Burglar Who Counted the Spoons doesn’t sound very SF… BERNIE!!!”
Got Emergence and the Miéville collection last week. Will be finding out later tonight what this week’s batch holds. I suspect the finished copy of Uprooted will be in there.
One of the things which dents my envy of you receiving all these books is the fact that you don’t have time to read many of them; it’s torture for you to have them there knowing you can’t!
Who knew China Mieville had a new book? So that’s number 1.
I Kickstarter backed the 2015 Young Explorer’s Adventure Guide. My husband really enjoyed it. I need to find the time to read it.
I’d love to read Uprooted.
I read an advance copy of UPROOTED. It’s really good–a bit reminiscent of Bujold’s Sharing Knife books. I hope it will be the first in a series.
