Stacking the Shelves – August 15, 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
Ace Roc Stars are completely spoiled by Ace/Roc, I feel incredibly fortunate to be a part of this group and was once again thrilled with the latest arrivals. Many thanks to Ace/Roc for their continued generosity.
This one was already on my radar. Emma Newman is on my list of authors I want to read (but have yet to), and I love the premise. Really looking forward to it!
I don’t read quite as much Science Fiction as I do fantasy, but I have to admit, this one sounds really good.
I was also excited to be invited to take part in Erin Lindsey’s blog tour for her new book Bloodforged. Since I’ve yet to read book one, the good people at Ace were generous and sent me both books so I can catch up. I have been meaning to read The Bloodhound for quite a while based on positive reviews I’ve seen (plus, it just sounds like a fun book), and am really looking forward to catching up with the series! Once again, thanks to Ace/Roc!
This one has been on my TBR for a while. A child who watched his magician father die, who has turned their and who eats bones? Yes, I am quite intrigued, plus I’ve heard wonderful things about it from Tammy at Books, Bones and Buffy and was thrilled to get a review copy of the audiobook. Many thanks to Recorded Books!
I have really been looking forward to this one. I really enjoyed The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms, have been meaning to read more by Jemisin, and this story sounds so good. Thanks to Hachette Audio for sending this one my way!
I will confess, this is not one I would have normally have looked at very close, perhaps I shouldn’t admit it, but I’m not a fan of the title. But what I am a fan of is rave reviews and glowing recommendations from sources I trust! Mogsy from The BiblioSanctum has high praise for this one, and even higher praise for the second book in the series. I couldn’t ignore that and had to get a copy. Many thanks to Audible Studios for the review copy!
And, I was also amazed by the generosity of the good people at Tor.com Publishing, as I was given the opportunity to review all of their 10 upcoming novellas. If you haven’t seen the list, seriously, go check it out! There are some great sounding stories and a number of familiar authors, and a wonderful variety so there should be something for everyone. I’ve pulled out The Last Witness as it was already firmly on my must read list. And then a couple more covers/blurbs because I just couldn’t help myself! I am sure I will read more than The Last Witness as these are short and there’s a number that sound really good! Some by authors I’ve read already and enjoyed, and some by authors I have been meaning to read. Many, many thanks to Tor.com Publishing for this haul!
And last, but certainly not least is a copy of The Flux. I absolutely love Flex, see my review for all the reasons why. So I was thrilled to get my hands on this one. Many thanks to Angry Robot!
