TBR Thursday

This week I got one paper book and five e-books.


Hemovore - Jordan Castillo Price  Robot Evolution: Perfect Partners, Inc. Vols 1-5 - Ann Christy  Fox and Wolf - Eugene Woodbury,Katherine Woodbury  


Hemovore - Jordan Castillo Price - This is just a paper backup of a Samhain Publishing book I enjoyed as an e-book.


Robot Evolution: Perfect Partners, Inc. Vols 1-5 - Ann Christy - Shay's review got me interested in this one, except then I discovered that all but the first of the five works contained in it were Amazon-only. I don't buy Amazon e-books and convert them to epub - I just walk away. However, Shay got me in touch with the author, who sent me an epub file for the book in the hope that I might review it. Crossing my fingers that I like it. I'll probably read it in between Twelve Kingdoms books.


Fox and Wolf - Eugene Woodbury,Katherine Woodbury - Eugene Woodbury is the person who did the fan translations of the Twelve Kingdoms books. I figured that, to show my appreciation (not that he'd know it), I'd buy one of his books. This one looked the most interesting.


The Raven and the Reindeer - T. Kingfisher  Avarice (Pyrrh Considerable Crimes Division, #1) - Annie Bellet  The Terracotta Bride - Zen Cho  


The Raven and the Reindeer - T. Kingfisher - T. Kingfisher stuff is an autobuy for me. Crossing my fingers that she eventually gets back to her elven veterinarian character.


Avarice (Pyrrh Considerable Crimes Division, #1) - Annie Bellet - This is actually part of a current Storybundle. It was the only one of the bunch I was really interested in, so I skipped out on the bundle and just bought this on its own.


The Terracotta Bride - Zen Cho - This was on sale.
