Book Haul #74: Let’s Get Digital

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!


Purchases

E-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.


Free

Physical | E-book
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.


ARC

E-book

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.

But wait!

I have more. 😀

  2. I’m not familiar with Juliet McKenna’s Green Man series but I have read and enjoyed the first couple books in her Tales of Einarinn series, an epic fantasy. I have several more from the series and I’d like to get back into it, but it’s been so long since I read the first two I don’t know whether to take the time to reread them or just jump into book three. And I may just put off both options in favor of reading something new. 🙂 I’m glad you enjoy putting together these posts because I enjoy reading them. They always give me new ideas and show me books I’d not heard of (like The Mask of Fudo) so thanks for that.

    1. I’m glad you enjoy these posts too.
      Lol! I understand prefering to start something new than to continue with a series you’ve taken a break from for a while now. I’m really looking forward to trying McKenna’s work. If I enjoy the Green Man ones, I’ll try that Einarinn series too.
