New Books and ARCs, 6/10/16

Just in time for the weekend, a new set of book and ARCs that have arrived at the Scalzi Compound. What in this stack rings all of your book-buying bells? Tell me in the comments!
What do you end up doing with all these books you get? I bet the closest library would love you.
AAHHHH! The Suicide Motor Club is AMAZING. One of my top books of the year for sure:-)
I loved Swenson’s The Ultra Thin Man, hardboiled crime fiction set in 2113. The Ultra Big Sleep should be a treat. And there’s interesting publishing story behind it.
In case anyone’s eyes are as bad as mine, the one with the pigs is THE INSIDES by Jeremy P. Bushnell. Looks pretty interesting.
How bout I take that Gemina off your hands, LOL.
I inhaled Gemina last weekend – a worthy sequel to Illuminae (which was one of my favourite books last year…)
INVASON OF THE TEARLING, definitely! THE QUEEN OF THE TEARLING was probably the best book I read last year, and as soon as I finish Rothfuss’ novella, I’m diving into INVASION myself.
Oh, Gemina! Definitely…
The title “And I Darken” sounds a bit spooky. It also is nicely vague – it could be about anything.
I like horror, so a Best Horror of the Year collection is a no brainier.
Maybe Invasion of the Tearling. I didn’t finish the first book yet, but that had to do with realizing that reading two fantasy books at once wasn’t a good idea for me.
Invasion of the Tearling!
I got an ARC of “And I Darken” a few weeks ago and I think it’s the best historical fiction I’ve read, period. Definitely in my top 10 books of 2016 (which I know is a bit early to call, but…)
Gemina! I met the authors at YALL West and they were funny and snarky, just like their book, Illuminae. Illuminae was one of my two favorite books from 2015 and I nominated it for a Hugo.
I really enjoyed the two Buehlman novels I’ve previously read, so I’ll definitely be checking out The Suicide Motor Club.
