Stacking the Shelves – July 18, 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
I’m a big fan of the Tao series, and was quite excited to see what other worlds/stories Chu had in store for us readers! I finished this very quickly, and it is definitely different than Tao, but with all the familiar strengths (my review will be up sometime shortly). My thanks to Audible Studios for the review copy!
I received this one as part of the Ace Roc Stars street team. Our last box of books had Magic Breaks in it, and I saw it was seventh in a series, and figured I was unlikely to read it. When they sent this book, they mentioned that Magic Breaks can work as an introductory book for new readers to the series. Knowing that, I may give that book (and then this one) a read. As always, I’m grateful to be a member of this group and many thanks to Ace/Roc for the generosity and sending a copy of this along.
Ready Player One was such an incredibly fun read, I considered this book a “must read” book. I was so excited when this one showed up on my doorstep. Many thanks to Crown Publishing and Wunderkind PR for the finished copy! I had to include photos of the inside of the jacket, as well as the mixed tape playlist! Love it!
OK, so I don’t actually have this one yet, but I did pre-order it. And I wanted to mention it because the pre-order is free until November. I am incredibly curious how narration for a graphic novel is done, and it sounded like Joe Hill was very pleased with how this one turned out, so I figured it would great to check out. plus FREE!
This was my Backlist Burndown pick this month. I was in the mood for something different and fun, and remembered seeing a couple of good reviews for this one, so gave it a shot. Finished it in a day, definitely a good choice this month!
