Stacking the Shelves – April 23, 2016
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!
I didn’t have a chance to get this post together last week, so there are SO MANY GREAT books to showcase this time!!
Received for Review
Children of Earth and Sky by Guy Gavriel Kay – I’ve loved the two books I’ve read by Kay, so this book was on my Must-Read list! Was very excited to get a copy. Many thanks to NAL!
The Summer Dragon by Todd Lockwood – I’ve already started this one and am really enjoying it. Strong female character, dragons! Oh and as added bonus, the author is an established illustrator and has wonderful images to along with the story! My thanks to DAW!
It Happened One Dooms Day by Laurence MacNaughton – This was a surprise arrival from Pyr. I have to confess, it may not be one I would normally have picked up, but sounds like it could be a fun read and sometimes I’m in the mood for that. Added bonus, the author’s profile says he writes books with deeply flawed characters. I tend to like that! Many thanks to Pyr for sending this my way!
Paper and Fire by Rachel Caine – Alright, Ink and Bone was one of my favorites from last year (and a very surprise one, it was a book not at all my radar). I am SO looking forward to this one!! I mean, forbidden books and such! I loved this story and so excited to continue. Many thanks to NAL!
The Suicide Motor Club by Christopher Buehlman – I loved both Between Two Fires and The Lesser Dead (two very different books). So I’m quite excited to check this newest book by Buehlman out. Many thanks to Berkley!
Sharp Ends by Joe Abercrombie – I may not be big on short stories generally, but I love the First Law books, so I’m very excited to read this. Many thanks to Hachette Audio for the review copy!
Fellside by M. R. Carey – I’ve actually already listened to this one (review). It was definitely different from The Girl with All the Gifts, but still very good! More thanks to Hachette Audio for this one!
Scourge of the Betrayer by Jeff Salyards – I have heard very high praise for this series and I received a review copy of the ebook from the author a couple of months ago, but I get to backlist books much quicker on audio. So I was thrilled when I was able to get a review copy from Audible Studios! Many thanks!!
And a couple more novellas for review from the wonderful people at Tor.com!!
Spiderlight by Adrian Tchaikovsky – I have wanted to read something by Tchaikovsky, and this may be a great chance! I really have heard wonderful things about his books and its about time I read one.
Pride’s Spell by Matt Wallace – I may be a bit less likely to read this one, I have a couple before I need to read, and I haven’t been sure of it. If I am in the mood for something out of the norm for me, I may give the first one a try.
