New Booksies

I acquired many books since my last post. The bought ones were mostly on sale and all except two were very depressingly on sale and in need of rescuing. (And to hubby's chagrin, below the threshold price we set for books counting towards achievement unlocked purchases while we were in Australia. Gwah ha ha ha ha.)

Review copies from Strange Chemistry, via NetGalley:
  • The Woken Gods by Gwenda Bond
  • Student Bodies by Sean Cummings (sequel to Poltergeeks)
  • When the World Was Flat (and we were in love) by Ingrid Jonach (first Australian author to be published by SC)

Purchased paper books from various Aussie shops, mostly on sale. Australian-authored titles in the first batch, international titles in the second.
  • Black Springs by Alison Croggon
  • Between the Loves by Jessica Shirvington
  • The Rook by Daniel O'Malley (winner of SF Aurealis for 2012)

  • The Future of Us by Jay Asher & Carolyn Mackler
  • Glow by Amy Kathleen Ryan
  • Delirium by Lauren Oliver


  1. The Future of Us is great :D And Glow, Glow is good, I can't wait for the third novel of that series. Delirium is good too, but I didn't like the sequel as much, and I own but haven't read the third and final instalment of the series.

    Enjoy those bookies!!

    1. Those three were all opportunistic (ie ridiculously discounted) buys. And yay Future of US came with me to Sweden.
