And so we’ve come to the second part of this book haul, which will focus on digital purchases and free things. Is it necessary for me to list all these things? Yes, lol, because these book haul posts sometimes help me to remember what I have. Ha! Ha! Anyway, I have fun doing them and that’s all that matters.
Well then, to the books!
The Unwritten, Vol. 1: Tommy Taylor and the Bogus Identity by Mike Carey, illus. by Peter Gross
Mask of Fudo, Vol. 1 by Saverio Tenuta (illus.)
These two were cover buys because Comixology kept tempting me with them. The cover of the Unwritten is by one of my favorite illustrators, Yuko Shimizu, who also did the covers of the Tensorate fantasy novella series. And Mask of Fudo just looks exciting.
The Green Man’s Heir, THE GREEN MAN’S FOE, and The Green Man’s Silence by Juliet McKenna
Imyril got me with her reviews of these, and since the e-books were on sale on Amazon, I got them! 🙂 I’m sure her post will entice you to get them too. Check it out.

White as Milk, Red as Blood: The Forgotten Fairy Tales of Franz Xaver von Schönwerth by Franz Xaver von Schönwerth, illus. by Willow Dawson and transl. from the German by Shelley Tanaka
I joined the Penguin Random House Reader Rewards program a while back, so my purchases enabled me to get this book of German fairytales for free. Isn’t it beautiful?? I love the cloth-bound cover with the gold detail and that it’s illustrated throughout.
When the Tiger Came Down the Mountain by Nghi Vo
It’s the second in the fantasy novella series the Singing Hills Cycle. The first novella is The Empress of Salt and Fortune. I got a free e-copy from Tor a couple weeks ago when they were giving out free downloads to those subscribed to its newsletter.
My Heart Is a Chainsaw by Stephen Graham Jones
This will be out on August 31. I was granted an e-copy through NetGalley from Gallery Books (thanks y’all!). I was pretty happy with myself to get access. I don’t often request ARCs since life has been busy lately and my reading has been sluggish.
Well, that’s all the e-books and free stuff I got over the past couple months.
I have more. 😀
