Stacking the Shelves – February 28, 2015
Stacking the Shelves is a weekly feature all about sharing your good luck in book acquisitions! So here’s what came my way
It’s been another couple busy weeks for me!
Shadow Study by Maria V. Snyder – The first three books in this series were fun. But I am quite interested to see read now that the protagonist is older. Many thanks to Harlequin!
The Fold by Peter Clines – I’ve heard good things about Ex-Heroes but have not read it yet. I have to admit, the premise of this book has me even more intrigued, a teleportation device that also seems to be changing the scientists that use it! Really looking forward to it! Many thanks to Crown Publishing!
Uprooted by Naomi Novik – I’ve not read anything by Novik before, but this book sounds like the perfect chance to try her. With a blurb that ends with: “Agnieszka fears the wrong things. For when the Dragon comes, it is not Kasia he will choose.” How could I not want to read this. Many thanks to Del Rey!
There seemed to be a rush of giveaways, and somehow I was lucky enough to win a number of books from them! Here’s the three that showed up since my last post.
Stolen Songbird by Danielle L. Jensen (won from Qwillery) – I try to not request ALL the books I see, so sometimes a book comes out that I wished I had requested. That was the case with Stolen Songbird. I’ve read a number of good reviews and am looking forward to reading it! Thanks to The Qwillery and Angry Robot for the giveaway!
Echo 8 by Sharon Lynn Fisher (won from Bibliosanctum) – This one sounds like it could be great for when I’m in the mood for something a little different (and with a bit of romance). Thanks to Bibliosanctum and Tor for the giveaway!
Pacific Fire by Greg Van Eekhout (won from Books, Bones and Buffy) This book is an extra reminder that I still need to read California Bones!! Which, funny enough, I also won from Books, Bones and Buffy! Thanks to Books, Bones and Buffy and Tor for the giveaway!
Sharps by K.J. Parker (purchased) – This was a kindle Daily Deal and I’ve been meaning to read another book by K.J. Parker. I could not *not* get it!
Dreamer’s Pool by Juliet Marillier (purchased – ebook and audiobook) – I’ve seen so many 5 star reviews for this one, I nominated it for my March book club read, and it won! But I couldn’t hold out, I started it right away. Oops? Anyway, all of the high praise was definitely warranted!
Miserere: An Autumn Tale by Teresa Frohock (ebook and audiobook) – I picked this one up with my March Backlist Burndown in mind. Really looking forward to it.
