Stacking the Shelves – March 31, 2018
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’ve still been requesting less books until I fully get back into my groove. But I did have some really exciting arrivals since my last post.
The Night Dahlia by R. S. Belcher – I really want to make time to read something by Belcher, they all sound amazing and have received glowing reviews that make it sound very much like something I would enjoy. Bonus points for getting those reviews from people I trust (like Tammy and Mogsy). This is a sequel, so I need to read Nightwise first, but I do hope to get to it. Many thanks to Tor for sending me this finished copy!
Head On by John Scalzi – So far I’ve really enjoyed all of Scalzi’s books that I’ve read, particularly Lock In. I was really hoping he would revisit that world because it just has so much potential. And for anyone who hasn’t read Lock In, I heard this one can work as a standalone. I’m really looking forward to this one. Many thanks to Tor Books!
The Defiant Heir by Melissa Caruso – YES! I am so excited to get a copy of this. I loved The Tethered Mage and this book is probably exactly what I’m in the mood for right now, so I may set everything else aside and dive in. A huge thanks to Orbit Books!
One of Us by Craig Dilouie – This is a debut I’ve been looking forward to checking out. It sounds a bit different, with potential to be really good (with an orphanage of kids other refer to as monsters). I’m gonna guess this one has some statements on tolerance and acceptance, which I like. Will have to read to find out! Many thanks again to Orbit Books for sending me an ARC.
I had a couple of surprise arrivals from Quercus as well. Freefall by Adam Hamdy and The Agency by James Phelan. These both sound good, but are also not first in series, so it may be a while until I have the time to catch up to read them. I may have to do some investigation to figure out if the earlier books are necessary or not. My thanks to Quercus!
The Last Sun by K. D. Edwards – This was a surprise arrival from Pyr. This one was already on my radar, it sounds like it could be a urban fantasy with a slightly different twist. Look forward to checking it out. Many thanks to Pyr!,
