My Book Haul/Showcase Sundays

I've decided to join Books, Biscuits and Tea's Showcase Sunday to share my lovely book hauls each week. Have a look back at Vicki's link up to see what everyone is up too!

A Million Suns (Across the Universe 2) - Beth Revis
Publisher: UK - RazorBill
Trapped on board the spaceship Godspeed, Amy trusts no-one.
The ship's ruler is dead and a rebellion threatens. Amy wants to help Elder as he tries to take charge, but she's torn between her feelings for him and the chaos that's pulling everything apart. As more harrowing discoveries are made about Godspeed, Amy is caught in a desperate race to unravel its secrets. Only one thing is certain.
They have to get off this ship.

I won this from Steph Loves Books alittle while back and it arrived this week! I still haven't read Across The Universe yet, but it is on my TBR pile and now I can read both books!

Blood Lite III: Aftertaste - Edited By Kevin J Anderson
Publisher: Gallery Press
The third book in the hilarious and horrifying national bestselling anthology series from the Horror Writers Association--a frightfest of sidesplitting stories from such "New York Times" bestselling authors as Jim Butcher, Sherrilyn Kenyon, Heather Graham, L.A. Banks, Kelley Armstrong, and many more
Horror fiction explores the dark side of human nature, often pushing the limits of violence, graphic gore, and extreme emotions. But with the popularity of shows and movies, such as "The Walking Dead," "True Blood," "Twilight," "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," audiences have demonstrated their love for the genre--especially accompanied with a dose of humor to tone down the terror.
"Blood Lite III: Aftertaste" continues to put the fun back into dark fiction, featuring a wide range of humorous and highly entertaining horror-filled tales. Edited by Horror Writers Association founding member and award-winning author Kevin J. Anderson, the stories vary in tone from wry to downright laugh-out-loud funny. Featuring such well-known horror writers as Jim Butcher, Sherrilyn Kenyon, Christopher Golden, and many others, this collection of tales is perfect for anyone who enjoys being entertained as much as they love a good scare.

I love a good anthology and some of my favourite authors have contributed to this book!

The Spirit War (Legend of Eli Monpress 4) - Rachel Aaron
Publisher: Orbit
Eli Monpress is vain. He's cocky. And he's a thief.
All Eli Monpress wanted was the biggest bounty in the world. He never meant to have obligations, or friends, but master swordsman Josef Leichten and Nico, the daughter of the dead mountain, have saved Eli's life too many times to be called anything else. But, when a friend upsets your plans and ruins all your hard work, what's a thief to do?
After years of running from his birthright, Josef is forced to return home and take up his title as prince. War is coming for humans and spirits between the Immortal Empress and the Council of Thrones, and Josef's little island is right in the middle. But conquest isn't the Empress's only goal, she has a personal vendetta against a certain thief.
What started as a simple side trip to help a friend is rapidly turning into the most dangerous job of Eli's career, but he can't back out now, not when Josef needs him. But when you're under attack from all sides, even the world's greatest thief can find himself cornered, and it's going to take all the fast talking Eli can muster to survive the next few days

I honestly can't tell you how excited I am about this book! I started reading it as soon as as uploaded to my kindle (for some reason the print version isn't available in the UK until November!). I'm actually away at a hen do this weekend and that is seriously going to impact my reading of Eli and his friends!

What have you picked up this week?

  1. You NEED to read "Across the Universe" as soon as possible (and then be thankful to already have the sequel lined up). I just finished "A Million Suns" this week and it's a great second book ... needless to say I almost started screaming when I realized that the last book of the trilogy will only be out next January *faints*.
