Another small book haul

Book reading is happening, and more book review posting will be happening. I'm a bit behind in writing reviews, but the holiday weekend is a good opportunity to do a bit of catching up.

In the meantime, here are some new acquisitions:

Roxanne J. Coady & Joy Johannessen (ed.) — The Books That Changed My Life (nonfiction)
James S.A. Corey — Caliban's War (sff)
James S.A. Corey — Abaddon's Gate (sff)
Max Gladstone — Full Fathom Five (sff)
Max Gladstone — Last First Snow (sff)
N.K. Jemisin — The Fifth Season (sff)
Guy Gavriel Kay — Children of Earth and Sky (sff)
Naomi Novik — Uprooted (sff)
Ada Palmer — Too Like the Lightning (sff)
Graydon Saunders — Safely You Deliver (sff)
Neal Stephenson — Seveneves (sff)
Jeff VanderMeer — Annihilation (sff)

This is mostly catching up on books that were nominated for awards. I want to read the (legitimate) nominees for Hugo best novel this year if I can find the time, and VanderMeer won the Nebula last year. The rest of Gladstone's series to date was on sale, and I really liked the first book. And of course a new Guy Gavriel Kay is buy on sight.

I'm currently re-reading The Sarantine Mosaic, since I read that before I started writing reviews and Children of Earth and Sky is apparently set in historical contact with it. (It's possible all of Kay's historical fantasies are set in the same universe, but they're usually fairly disconnected.)
