Stocktake Saturday 31 – 2014

August 9, 2014 Stocktake Saturday 5

Welcome to Stocktake Saturday! This feature is where I share some bookish news with you and then show you all the bookish goodies I got over the week.

The cover reveals from the last week – (links to Goodreads pages)

In Bookish News, Samantha Shannon has signed with Bloomsbury for the remaining books in The Bone Season series. Here’s what she said:

Voyants and amaurotics of Tumblr, I have some very exciting news.

Iā€™m delighted to announce that Bloomsbury has signed me on for the remaining four books in THE BONE SEASON series (I was originally signed for three with the potential of seven). All seven are officially happening. It is an OFFICIAL HEPTALOGY.

I just want to say a huge thank you to everyone for all your support since the first book was published last year. I feel incredibly lucky that I get to continue writing these books and doing a job I love. Thank you for being such wonderful readers.


This week’s reviews:

I also did a post called The Statistics of Book Series where I looked at how my ratings for each book of a series has changed over time. There were some interesting results!

This week I got the following e-galleys from Netgalley:

I hope you have some goodies to share as well, leave your links below and I’ll be sure to visit šŸ™‚

    YAY FORGET ME NOT!! Stacey Nash is one of my awesome Aussie Owned and Read friends, and when it was originally released with Entranced Publishing, I read it in galley form when I interned there. It’s awesome, I hope you like it šŸ™‚

    Talon looks awesome! XD I’m really excited for it, though I’ll be waiting until it comes out but I don’t mind. The cover is quite awesome too. Big congrats to Samantha Shannon, though! 7-book deals are pretty unusual, aren’t they?!!

      TALON yes yes. I was so0o0o0 excited when I saw this šŸ˜€

      I don’t know many authors who are signed on for 4+ books in one go – usually contracts are for 1-3 books with the possibility of extending to more, like Samantha’s. Which must make it hard of you have a septology planned, and you have to make the first three books self consistent just in case you don’t get an extension!

    OHHHH! I can’t wait to see what you think of Talon, it looks amazing šŸ™‚ Ahh, that’s amazing news for Samantha Shannon, I remember her talking a lot about it when she visited Bloomsbury Syd for her Bone Season release, and everyone in the Syd office were really excited over it. I can’t wait to see what she has in store for ALL 7 BOOKS. Great haul
