Only three weeks after my trip to Essen Spiel I visited a book fair Interliber in Zagreb. At Essen Spiel I bought many games and one graphic novel String Theory (Wayward volume 1) by Jim Zub and Steve Cummings. This time since it was a BOOK FAIR after all I went and bought some books I planned, some I did not plan and some I just had to have. On the picture above is my Interliber loot! I am sorry for the bad quality of the photo. This year I was a bit more controled by my budget and have bought eight books in total. I managed to snag a nice amount of bookmarkers 🙂
Here are the books I got:
Cable, Vol. 1: Put Svjetlosti
(Cable, Volume I #97-100)
by David Tischman
This was bought as a gift for my boyfriend. It is a Croatian translation. Cable from the Marvel Universe is a villain from the Deadpool storyline. The English title is Cable, Vol. 1: The Shining Path (Cable Volume I #97-100).
(Saga, #4, #5 and #6)
by Brian K. Vaughan (Writer), Fiona Staples (Artist)
I had waited a whole year for this one. I’ve decided to own Saga in Croatian edition by the publisher Fibra. It has been a few years since I’ve read the first three in English. conveniently Croatian edition is a really chubby compilation that collects three volumes by six chapters each in one big hardcover package. I’ve bought the first compilation earlier this year and now I’ve finally gotten the new one at Interliber. The publisher decided to release them once a year at Interliber in these chubby hardcover editions. They are quite heavy!
Leviathan Wakes (The Expanse #1)
Caliban’s War (The Expanse #2)
by James S.A. Corey
I have been trying to decide on this series for over a year now. Usually I don’t buy Croatian translations since there is a problem with publisher not finishing translating the series. I decided to trust this small Croatian publisher Hangar 7 to keep translating the rest of the series. They decided to keep the original English edition cover and I like that. It was a big step for me.
The Hundred Secret Senses
Saving Fish from Drowning
by Amy Tan
These two books were bought as a gift for the mother of my boyfriend. I was looking for a something for her and these had the melancholy historical vibe that the woman likes. I got them on sale for an excellent bargain price I hope she likes them.
The Ship of the Dead
(Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard #3)
The Dark Prophecy
(The Trials of Apollo #2)
by Rick Riordan
I actually agreed to order these after Christmas. I asked around with the sellers that sold books in English and none of them had it. Until I came across one of the seller booth that were just making room for the books that just arrived…As soon as I saw them I had to have them. What I loved about them is that they were exact same hardcover edition as the others I already have. I binged! I’m already halfway trough Apollo Trials first book so I can continue with these two! It’s very motivating!
