Over the past couple weeks, I’ve added a few new books to my collection. See, this is proof that having an e-reader won’t stop me from reading physical books too!
“The Mistborn Trilogy” by Brandon Sanderson – I got the boxed set for Christmas, and I’m excited to read it. I’ve been wanting to read more Brandon Sanderson ever since reading The Way of Kings this past summer, especially as the next Stormlight Archive book won’t be out until 2013.
“Tigana” by Guy Gavriel Kay – I’d heard good things about this one, and finally picked it up. Epic fantasy makes me happy, and the cover art is intriguing.
“A Wizard of Earthsea” by Ursula K. LeGuin – I’ve only read two books by Ursula K. Le Guin, and those two were enough to make her one of my favorite authors. This is the first book in the Earthsea cycle, which are written for a bit younger audience. I had been keeping an eye out for it for months, but most bookstores don’t keep it in stock.
“Ender’s Game” by Orson Scott Card – I read the sequel to this in high school and was a bit ambivalent about it, but I think it’s because I hadn’t read this one first. It won a Hugo and a Nebula, which is generally a good sign.
“The Rowan” by Anne McCaffrey – Every now and then, I pick up a book without realizing that it’s a sequel. I bought “Damia” before Christmas, and decided that it would be best to read the books in order. I’m not a huge fan of the cover art, but it can’t be helped.
Have you acquired any new books lately?
