New Booksies

I have a fairly large haul since my last new booksies post a little while ago. In chronological order...

First up, courtesy of NetGalley, I received:
  • The Mad Scientist's Daughter by Cassandra Rose Clarke — which I am super looking forward to party because of the title (what's not to like?) and partly because I loved her debut YA book, The Assassin's Curse.
  • Pantomime by Laura Lam — which looks intriguing and I have high hopes for, since I've loved everything I've read from Strange Chemistry.
  • The Best of All Possible Worlds by Karen Lord — and intriguing new SF novel. I haven't read all that much recent non-YA SF, hopefully this one won't be disappointing.
  • A Galactic Holiday — a collection of three holiday themed SF-y novellas from Carina Press. Last year's steampunk collection included Wanted: One Scoundrel, so I'm hoping it'll be fun.
And then, rather excitingly, the two latest Twelve Planets ebooks arrived in my inbox:
  • Cracklescape by Margo Lanagan
  • Through Splintered Walls by Kaaron Warren
Both of which I'm looking forward to. All the other collections in the Twelve Planets have been great in a variety of ways so it'll be interesting to see what these two bring to the table.


  1. What a great haul, Tsana! I've heard of Pantomime - it sounds great!

  2. The Mad Scientist's Daughter looks fabulous (although what is it with all these books called The Such-and-Such's Daughter or The Such-and-Such's Wife?)

  3. Maybe it's supposed to sound romantic or mysterious or something. I just hope it's less depressing than The Time Traveller's Wife (I'm sure it will be).

  4. I hope you enjoy them all!
