Stacking the Shelves
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!
First up, I am quite happy to have been selected as one of the first Ace Roc Stars! This is a new “virtual street team” program that the good people at Ace & Roc Books have started. What does it mean? It means I get boxes of books!! This makes me so incredibly happy! And I this week I received my first box!
The Aeronaut’s Windlass by Jim Butcher – This is just a teaser sample, but I am quite curious about it. I have not read the Dresden books, but they have so many fans, I think I need to check this out. And it’s less daunting to start with a book one in a new series than an established series that has a significant number of books already.
Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine – I’ve not read anything by Rachel Caine, and this the first in a new series. And its magic set in a library, so what’s not to like? I plan on reading this one sometime before its release in July.
Dead Heat by Patricia Briggs – I’ve seen a number of good reviews for this one. But, I think I need to start with book one for this series, so will have to put it on hold until I catch up!
Leviathan (The Lost Fleet Beyond the Frontier #5) by Jack Campbell – Sounds like it could be good, but my guess is I should start with book #1 and work my way to this one.
Day Shift by Charlaine Harris – This is a second in a series, but it can be read as a standalone. This is another one that I plan to try. Texas vampires 🙂 Sounds like a fun change of pace.
There was also a sampler in here so I have the chance to check out a bit of a number of other authors as well!
So many thanks to Ace Roc for the set of books and selecting me to be a part of the Ace Roc Stars street team!
When We Were Animals by Joshua Gaylord (unsolicited ARC) – I was so incredibly happy to see this show up on my door step. I have been eyeing it and wanting to read it, but had just really overbooked my April and had managed some level of self control. But now that it’s here, I am definitely reading as soon as finish my current read. I am definitely in the mood for a good horror book! Many thanks to Mulholland Books for sending this my way!
Shutter by Courney Alameda (Won from Not Yet Read) – I’ve seen a number of great reviews for this and THE COVER!! I have to read it just for that! 🙂 Was very excited to win a copy because I likely would not have bought the hardcover, and it is so cool!
Wee Free Men by Terry Pratchett – I got this audiobook for the Fantasy Faction book club read. It will be my first Discworld book!
Stolen Songbird by Danielle L. Jensen – I already have the physical book, but saw the ebook cheap and went ahead and grabbed it. Sometimes it’s easier to read an ebook 🙂
