Stacking the Shelves – May 24, 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 another couple of great weeks for book additions!
Received for Review
Corsair by James Cambias – This just sounded like a fun Sci-Fi book with space pirates and hackers, I’ve already listened and reviewed this one (and enjoyed it!). My thanks to Audible Studios for the review copy!
Stolen Songbird by Danielle L. Jensen – I’ve heard many great things about this one. Since I don’t read a lot of YA, I had missed it until now, but I was in the mood for something lighter, and this really fit the bill and now I’ll be ready for Hidden Huntress which is coming out soon! Watch for my review of Stolen Songbird sometime this week. Once again, many thanks to Audible Studios!
A Murder of Mages by Marshall Ryan Maresca – I will admit, detective stories usually don’t appeal to me a whole lot. But after enjoying The Thorn of Dentonhill so much, I’m really looking forward to checking this one out (the first in a parallel series). My thanks to Penguin (DAW) for the eARC.
The Library at Mount Char by Scott Hawkins – This is a Library Thing giveaway win from back in January!! I also have an eARC and am really looking forward to checking this out! Curious to see what I think of reading another library book after Ink and Bone. My thanks to Crown for this copy!
The Pyre by David Hair – I have heard great things about David Hair’s other books, and was excited at the opportunity to check this one out for review! Many thanks to Jo Fletcher books for sending this one my way.
Vicious by V. E. Schwabb – Was very excited to win Kaja’s Birthday Giveaway over at Of Dragons and Hearts! I got to pick out a book from any of her 4 and 5 star reviews!! So, quite excited to finally read something by Schwab, starting with Vicious! Thanks so much Kaja! Really looking forward to this one.
I also won Anya’s weekly Sci-fi and Fantasy Friday giveaway at On Starships and Dragonwings, which means I got to pick from pages and pages of wonderful books on her Goodreads shelf, full of the books she offers. I knew right away I wanted The Barrow by Mark Smylie. I’ve been meaning to read this one for quite a while! I also picked The Shadow Throne by Django Wexler. It’s a second in series, but the series is one I have been meaning to read and is highly rated by bloggers I trust (so I am sure I will want the second book!) Thank you Anya!!
Last Call by Tim Powers (ebook and audiobook) – This is Fantasy Faction’s June book club selection. I have been curious about this one for a few year, so I may make it my backlist burndown book as well.
Firefight by Brandon Sanderson (audiobook) – Finally getting around to this one!I loved the first book, but was a bit disappointed in Mitosis, so we’ll see where this one goes!
That round up my book pile! So, see anything that looks good? Read any of these already? What books have you received recently that you’re excited about?
