Stacking the Shelves – September 30, 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 really need to start posting these more frequently! 🙂 I have some great books this time, it’s hard to choose what to read next!

Received for Review

 

Imposters of Aventil by Marshall Ryan Maresca

This is the third book in the trilogy, so I was really looking forward to it. I already read and enjoyed, you can check out my review. Now I’m looking forward to see what Maresca does next! My thanks to DAW books!

Stone in the Skull by Elizabeth Bear

I really enjoyed Karen Memory and am looking forward to see how Bear does epic fantasy. Many thanks to Tor Books!

The Genius Plague by David Walton

I love the sound of this one, sort of a creepy science fiction. Many thanks to Pyr!

Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman

This is an illustrated edition and is gorgeous! I added a few more pictures here, but there are also pages that are framed with an illustration, just lots of different cool artwork all through out the book. Many thanks to William Morrow!!

 

 

Strange Weather by Joe Hill

I’m not usually a squee-er, but a new book by Joe Hill?? SQUEE!! I’m really excited for this one, I love Joe Hill’s writing. So many thanks to William Morrow

Children of Refuge by Margaret Peterson Haddix

This is the second in a series, and I’ve not read the first.Hopefully I can catch up! Many thanks to Simon and Schuster Books for Young Readers for the finished copy!

Unkindness of Magicians by Kat Howard

Roses and Rot was a great read, so another book by Kat Howard already has my attention. And I actually love the idea of a protagonist who is not jumping on the bandwagon to help save magic

 

 

The Bloodprint by  Ausma Zehanat Khan

This is a new epic fantasy with two strong female leads. Really excited to read it! Thanks to Harper Voyager!

Starlings by Jo Walton

I loved the Thessaly trilogy by Walton and am looking forward to reading more of her work. My thanks to Tachyon Publishing!

This was a bit of an impulse for me, but it sounded fun and different so decided to give it a try. Many thanks to Simon & Schuster
I’m really looking forward to reading this one. Love the role of technology in it! Thanks to William Morrow!

  1. I received a copy of the illustrated edition of Neverwhere as well and I haven’t even gotten a chance to really look through it closely, but from what I’ve seen of the artwork I’m really impressed. This is a book I’ve been meaning to read for a long time!

  2. The reviews I’ve read about The Genius Plague point to a very intriguing book, indeed.
    And I’ve read the synopsis for The Feed, so I can understand perfectly your interest in it: looking forward to your review! 🙂

  3. The Neverwhere illustrations are beautiful! I read that book a year or two ago, so I bet the illustrated version must be a real treat, especially with the underground scenes.

    I got a bunch of books for my birthday recently (some were gifts, others were ones I bought with a birthday gift certificate). I doubt I’ll be able to remember them all, but some of them were Blackbird House by Alice Hoffman, The House of the Spirits by Isabel Allende, Beren & Luthien by J.R.R. Tolkien, and the second and third books of Rae Carson’s Fire & Thorns trilogy. And then a friend of mine who works at Tor was able to send me copies of the second and third books of Brian Staveley’s Unhewn Throne series, as well as an ARC of K. Arsenault Rivera’s The Tiger’s Daughter.

  4. The Stone in the Skull looks wonderful – as does The Genius Plague. It looks as if you are nicely set up with some excellent October reads, Lisa:). In the meantime have a great week:)
