Stacking the Shelves – May 6, 2017
Stacking the Shelves is a weekly feature all about sharing your good luck in book acquisitions! So here’s what came my way since my last post!
I have still been trying to show some restraint with my book request, but always easier said than done! 🙂 Anyway, I am excited about the books I received over the past couple of weeks!
Received for Review
The Legion of Flame (The Draconis Memoria) by Anthony Ryan
Also by this author: Blood Song
Published by Ace Books on June 27th 2017
Huge thanks to Ace for this early review copy! I still need to catch up with the first one, but hear it is supposed to be good!
The Forgotten Beasts of Eld by Patricia A. McKillip
Also by this author: The Forgotten Beasts of Eld
Published by Tachyon Publications on September 17th 2017
Many thanks to Tachyon for sending me the review copy! I have been meaning to read McKillip for a while, and was delighted to be able to get a review copy of this reprint. Plus, look at the gorgeous cover!
Raid by K.S. Merbeth
Also by this author: Bite
Published by Orbit on July 25th 2017
I am seriously looking forward to this one. Bite was a favorite of mine from last year, and so excited to get another one. Many thanks to Orbit for the review copy.
The Beautiful Ones by Silvia Moreno-Garcia
Also by this author: Certain Dark Things
Published by Thomas Dunne Books on October 24th 2017
This book sounds quite different from Certain Dark Things, in fact, it sounds closer to the Glamourist Histories books I recently read by Mary Robinette Kowal. But seeing as how I loved that style/setting, and I loved Moreno-Garcia’s writing, I think this could be an amazing read. Thanks so much to Thomas Dunne Books for the review copy.
