Stacking the Shelves (11): Comic Con Edition Part 2 - Penguin, Macmillan, & Simon & Schuster

This weekly linkup is hosted by Tynga's Reviews. Visit her site to see what everyone else has gotten their hands on recently.

Last week I shared the books I carried away from San Diego Comic Con provided by the generous people at Random House and Little, Brown. This week here are the books from the other awesome publishers I got to visit with during my time at the Con.

First up are the lovely people of Penguin:

Champion chapter sampler by Marie Lu

New Adult Reads, DAW Books, and Sci Fi and Fantasty reads from Ace and Roc samplers

Poptropica: Island Creator Kit by Mitch Krpata (a drawing book that will make its way to my nephew eventually)

Virals by Kathy Reichs (signed)

Department Nineteen by Will Hill

Earthbound by Aprilynne Brooks (signed)

Shadow by Robin McKinley

Not Pictured: Gameboard of the Gods by Richelle Mead


And from my great friend Ed at Simon & Schuster:

The Wind Through the Keyhole by Stephen King

Big Egos by SG Browne

The Waking Dark by Robin Wasserman

The Troop by Nick Cutter

The Demonologist by Andrew Pyper

Day by Day Armageddon: Shattered Hourglass by JL Bourne


Last year I had a hard time finding the Disney/Hyperion booth, but this year I stumbled upon it several times. They were giving out an interesting selection of children and YA titles:

Star Darlings: Sage's Story by Ahmet Zappa & Shana Maldoon Zappa

Tesla's Attic by Neal Shusterman & Eric Elfman

Beta by Rachel Cohn

False Sight by Dan Krokos


And finally the books that I picked up here and there around the convention floor:

Smart Pop Preview 2013 sampler

Cress by Marissa Meyer (thank you soooo much to Macmillan for providing me with my prize for the year!)

Twinmaker by Sean Williams (thanks to Harper Teen)

Barbarians: A Handbook for Aspiring Savages by Byron Clavicle & Grute Skullbasher (thanks to Insight Editions)

To the Heart of the Storm by Will Eisner (thanks to the Con itself and the Eisner Awards for handing out all sorts of Eisner goodies)


Macmillan also provided me with an opportunity to say hello to Marissa Meyer again and tell her she is awesome. In return she signed my ARC of Cress:

And that was the bookish part of my Con swag. What sort of awesome books have found their way into your home this week?

Stacking the Shelves (1): Comic Con Edition Part 1 - Hachette, MacMillan and More

Considering that most of my books haven't been arriving via my mailbox, I figured it was time to swap over to Stacking the Shelves. This weekly linkup is hosted by Tynga's Reviews. Visit her site to see what everyone else has gotten their hands on recently.

So I just cataloged the 42 different books I received at Comic Com this year and decided it would be completely irrational to post those all in one post, so we're splitting this into two. First up we have the titles from Hachette, Macmillan, Simon & Schuster, Tor and Harper Collins. Here we go...

 Blackout by Mira Grant (signed)

Etiquette & Espionage by Gail Carriger (signed)

From the generous people at Simon & Schuster:

So there's round one. A million thanks to the publishers and the wonderful people manning their booths for taking the time to chat with me. The next edition will have all the great books from Penguin and Random House. See why we take extra suitcases to Comic Con?
