Even More New Books

As luck would have it I received two large book orders during the week so this, my last new arrival post of 2011, is a truly epic book haul. Once again I went a bit overboard, but by this time you should know that I'm a complete book addict so it shouldn't come as any surprise.

Pre-loved books:

These are all second hand books I ordered from my two favourite online stores Better World Books and Awesome Books. Between the two of them I can get a bunch of used hardcovers for the price of what one new hardcover would cost over here.

Science Fiction books:
Use of Weapons - Iain M. Banks
Cowboy Angels - Paul McAuley
Moon War - Ben Bova
Ender's Shadow, Shadow of the Hegemon - Orson Scott Card
Shadow Puppets, Shadow of the Giant - Orson Scott Card
The Martian Race - Gregory Benford
The Trigger - Arthur C. Clarke 

Fantasy books:
The Dwarves - Markus Heitz
The Magicians Guild, The Novice, The High Lord - Trudi Canavan
The Demon Awakens, The Demon Spirit - R.A Salvatore
The Demon Apostle, Mortalis - R.A Salvatore

For Review

I received Halo Cryptum by Greg Bear and A Year in the Wild by James Hendry. Thanks to Pan Macmillan SA for sending me these review copies!


At the moment I'm suffering from a bout of reading fatigue which is really frustrating. It's not that I don't want to read, it's just that I can't seem to keep my normal pace going. I'm going to take it easy over the next few days and hopefully I'll be back to normal soon.

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas filled with bookish gifts and lots of reading time!


  1. I'm a fan of both Orson Scott Card and R.A. Salvatore, so for this post of books, I approve. :) Thanks for sharing!

  2. @Oto: Thanks for commenting. I'm also a huge fan of both authors. I loved Ender's Game, but the Shadow series seems to have slipped my attention.

    R.A. Salvatore is also great. His Drizzt series got me hooked. Someone said the Demon Wars series is even better so I want to check that out.
