New Procurements now with extra Dragon

A couple big trips to the bookstore and a long awaited order showed up this week along with plenty of good review copies. After finishing my re-read of A Song of Ice and Fire I'm realizing how far behind I am with reading, but it was something I needed to do. My reviews are woefully behind as well. I've got two stacks of books I need to do full write-ups on. I'm toying around with a reading schedule for the next month or two to get caught up and get to some books I've promised myself to read. Still undecided, but it worked for me about a year and a half ago.

First up is Hammered by Kevin Hearne, which is the third in the Iron Druid series that I've been devouring along with Heartless by Gail Carriger, the penultimate novel in the Parasol Protectorate series that I picked up at the bookstore this week. These will both be read over my vacation in a couple weeks. Yeah it is time for some lighter stuff.

Next is The Griff by Christopher Moore and Ian Corson, which is Moore's first graphic novel sent from the publisher. If you're a fan of the movie Independence Day then this should be a lot of fun for you. I already finished it. Long-time Moore fans may be disappointed as it is very action focused, but there are some funny bits as well.

The long awaited A Dance with Dragons by George R.R. Martin has dropped and what a big noise it makes when it falls.  I picked it up Tuesday and just finished last night and man, is my shoulder tired.

Back to review copies The Restoration Game by Ian McLeod showed up from Pyr and it looks to be a nice Sci-Fi Thriller. McLeod has a big UK audience and I'm definitely going to try this one out. Then came The Revisionists by Thomas Mullen from the newly formed Mulholland Books. Tor sent along the horror novel The Secret of Crickley Hall by James Herbert, which sounds all sorts of creep. And Blackdog by K.V. Johansen looks to be a nice fat debut from Pyr.  The Alloy of Law by Brandon Sanderson from Tor is a must read. I'm really intrigued by what Sanderson is doing here by moving his Fantasy world forward technologically.

I also bought The Year's Best Science Fiction, 28th Edition edited by Gardiner Dozois, which is my first in the series for many years. And finally a bunch of Zoran Zivkovic's books showed up to start filling out my collection with the novella The Book, The Writer and his short story collections Impossible Stories and Impossible Stories II.
