Stacking the Shelves – May 31, 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 only been a week since my last Stacking the Shelves, but it’s been an awesome week, so I wanted to share! 🙂

Received for Review










The Water Knife by Paolo Bacigalupi –  I’ve been wanting to read something by Bacigalupi for a while, and this looks to be a great way to start! My thanks to Audible Studios for the review copy!

Fool’s Quest by Robin Hobb – This book just made my weekend/week/month! I absolutely can’t wait to read it, but may wait until a just a bit closer to release. We’ll see if I have that much self control. A thousand thanks to Del Rey!

The Devil’s Only Friend by Dan Wells – I’ve not read Dan Wells before, but this book sounded incredibly good. I didn’t notice until afterwards that it’s marked as a 4th in series, but it sounds like maybe it can be read as a standalone. Anyone out there know? If so, I will look up the first book. 🙂 Many thanks to Ria at Bibliotropic and Tor for the giveaway!












The Tainted City by Courtney Schafer (audiobook) – I bought this book as soon as I finished Whitefire Crossing. I have no idea why I put off reading it for so long, but decided to get the audiobook to help the process. I supported the kickstarter for the third book and want to make sure to catch up!

The Book of Three by Lloyd Alexander – OK, so I did buy this one for my ten year old. But, I am thinking I may give it a read myself as a good number of my Goodreads friends rated it quite highly.

  1. Yay, I’m glad that “The Devil’s Only Friend” arrived safely, and I hope you enjoy reading it! 😀

    Also, I hope you adore “The Tainted City” as much as I did. I’m anxiously awaiting the third and final book, and the wait is damn near killing me!

  2. I’m intrigued by that Bacigalupi book! His name popped up a few times in one of my uni classes on eco-criticism in literature, actually. Ahhh Llloyd Alexander, such nostalgia! I loved those books growing up; they are so trope-y and fun, I can definitely see your kid (and you!) liking them.
