My Book Haul 2/7/15

Trigger Warning by Neil Gaiman and Human.4 by Mike A. Lancaster

In need of a new way to showcase titles, I decided that My Book Haul seems like a good fit. I like giving books a little special attention as sometimes it can be awhile before I’m able to review them. Sad to say, but some get put on the shelf and gather a little dust before I’m able to give them the love they deserve. I’ve included links to Goodreads if you want more information on the books.

For Review:

Was thrilled when the publisher offered to send me a review copy of Neil Gaiman’s newest book! I’m a huge Gaiman fan, so really looking forward to reading this one. And it’s short stories! I love short stories! *swoon*
Trigger Warning by Neil Gaiman

Trigger Warning by Neil Gaiman

Multiple award winning, #1 New York Times bestselling author Neil Gaiman returns to dazzle, captivate, haunt, and entertain with this third collection of short fiction following Smoke and Mirrors and Fragile Things–which includes a never-before published American Gods story, “Black Dog,” written exclusively for this volume. (Goodreads)

Swapped:

While I’m not longer an active participant on PaperbackSwap.com, I still receive emails whenever one of the books on my wishlist becomes available. I still have credits, so received this book in the mail about a week after accepting the offer. Not sure when I’ll get to it, but it still sounds like a good read.

Human.4 by Mike A. Lancaster

Human.4 by Mike A. Lancaster

Kyle Straker volunteered to be hypnotized at the annual community talent show, expecting the same old lame amateur acts. But when he wakes up, his world will never be the same. Televisions and computers no longer work, but a strange language streams across their screens. Everyone’s behaving oddly. It’s as if Kyle doesn’t exit.

Is this nightmare a result of the hypnosis? Will Kyle wake up with a snap of fingers to roars of laughter? Or is this something much more sinister? Narrated on a set of found cassette tapes at an unspecified point in the future, Human.4 is an absolutely chilling look at technology gone too far. (Goodreads)

  1. I try to swap my unwanted books whenever I can, mostly with a girl at RISI who sends me Amazon gift vouchers for them. Nice! I still have a voucher waiting to be spent…Enjoy your books and thanks for visiting!

  2. I enjoyed Trigger Warning. I found a long dry spot of stories in the middle that didn't wow me, but more than enough awesome stories to make up for it and keep me reading.

  3. I have seen a couple of people receive Trigger Warning and it looks interesting. I haven't read any neil gaiman books though i received Good Omens for Christmas and have heard good things. Thanks for visiting my blog, have a great week and happy reading ! 🙂

  4. Thanks for stopping by Grace! Hope you're able to use your credits for something good. I totally forgot about mine until they sent me an email, so I updated my wishlist in case something good comes in!

  5. I like the idea of swapping books for Amazon gift cards! At my last job, we had a bookswap shelf where we could leave our old books and take new ones. One of the few reasons I miss my old office. ha!

  6. My favorite Gaiman is Neverwhere, but I think it's tied up in good memories because I read it right after visiting London for the first time. Good Omens and American Gods are also really good! I'd recommend reading sample excerpts of these three to see which one strikes your fancy. Hope you give him a chance, as he's one of my all-time favorite authors!

  7. Now see you and I differ there, I am not a huge fan of short stories, but I do get drawn into reading them now and again. Admittedly, his new one DOES sound good. Happy reading!

  8. I need to get me on that Neil Gaiman bus. You always get review copies. Why is it always Terri? Terri, Terri, Terri! Sorry, I was channeling Jan. I hope you enjoy it!

  9. A Brady Bunch reference! Love it! I'd recommend you sign up for all the publisher newsletters out there, plus Shelf Awareness, If you blog it, they will come. Patience, Grasshopper. 😉
