Stacking the Shelves – January 20, 2017
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 have another great haul to share!! Really excited about some of these books.
Harper Voyager sent me a couple of really fun looking books. Gunpowder Moon which involves the first murder on the moon. I’ve been having good luck recently with SF set on the moon, so I’m really looking forward to this one. Blood of the Four by Christopher Golden and Tim Lebbon is another one that has me intrigued. I’ve read a couple of Golden’s horror books and enjoyed them, and am excited to see him working on a dark fantasy. I’ve not read anything by Lebbon, but have heard good things, so am looking forward to see how they work together and how they blend horror and fantasy. Many thanks to Harper Voyager for both of these!
Torn by Rowenna Miller is one I actually had not heard of before it showed up, which makes it an extra fun surprise. It actually sounds like a really interesting story where magic and sewing are linked (a bit different). Really llooking forward to reading this one. Many thanks to Orbit books!
I remember hearing about Song of Blood & Stone by L. Penelope from the SPFBO from last year, and that cover (which changed just slightly) is so stunning. Was happy to recieve a copy from St. Martin’s Press
Cut You Down by Sam Wiebe is a mystery and sounds a bit different (which can be a good thing). It is a second in a series and I’m not sure if I would need to read the first prior to this one or no. May have to investigate that. Many thanks to Quercus!
Blade and Bone by Jon Sprunk is the third in a series and I’ve not read the first two yet, so I’m not liable to get to this one very soon. However, it does sound good and I’m hoping one of these days I will get to it. My thanks to Pyr for sending this my way!
The Defiant by Lesley Livingston – I can’t tell you how happy I was to get an audiobook review copy of this one! I loved the first book and had to start this one as soon as I got it. So far so good! Many, many thanks to Listening Library for the review copy!
I love the sound of Blood and Sand by C. V. Wyk and was very excited to get a copy! Many thanks to Tor Teen!
I also recieved a couple of books I’m very excited about from DAW Books. I’ve really been enjoying all of the Maradaine books, but this series was particularly fun! Really looking forward to checking back into the criminal underground with Lady Henterman’s Wardrobe by Marshall Ryan Maresca DAW Books
And I am so, so looking forward to A Veil of Spears by Bradley P. Beaulieu, I can’t wait to delve in. So many thanks to DAW Books for both of these!
Volatile Bonds by Jaye Wells – The Prospero’s War trilogy was so much fun, I was excited to see it was continuing with a fourth book. She is self publishing this one, but used the same narrator as when she was traditionally published, and I have to say it is every bit as good (I already listened to it, watch out for my review which should run sometime soon)
The Path of Flames by Phil Tucker – Well, I heard some positive things about this one and saw it was free, so why not grab a copy, right?
