Stacking the Shelves – May 9, 2015
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!
It’s been a few weeks, and I have lots of great books to show off!!
SEAL Team Six: Hunt the Fox by Don Mann and Ralph Pezzullo – This was an unexpected arrival from Mulholland. It sounds intense and actually quite interesting and intense. Many thanks to Mulholland for sending this my way.
When the Heavens Fall by Marc Turner – Thanks to Tor for this finished version! I read a bit of this already from a preview excerpt and am looking forward to finishing it!
Zer0es by Chuck Wendig – Wending. Hackers. A sinister NSA program. Yes, I want! Really looking forward to this one, and thanks to Harper Voyager for the advanced copy!
The Two of Swords by K. J. Parker – I have only read one book by K. J. Parker, but really loved it and have been meaning to read more! So when Orbit offered this up for review, I was happy to grab it! Many thanks to them for the copy.
Alive by Scott Sigler – I’ll admit, I really enjoy a good dystopian novel from time to time, and this one sounds really intriguing. Thanks to Del Rey for eARC.
The Philosopher Kings by Jo Walton – I am so excited to read this one. I loved The Just City and am anxious to dive into this one. Many thanks to Tor for the early copy.
The Player of Games by Iain M. Banks (audiobook) – This is what I wound up selecting for my May Backlist Burndown. I read one other book by Banks, but not a Culture novel. Really enjoying it so far.
The Vagrant by Peter Newman (audiobook) – I’ve heard some good things about this one and have been really looking forward to checking it out. I was also quite happy I decided to get it during audible’s half price sale (for 9 dollars plus change) after seeing the e-book is $18! But, I have a copy and am excited to check it out soon!
