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 have some great additions again this time!  Received for Review   The Nightjar sounds fantastic, a great contemporary fantasy set in London. I am looking forward to checking it out. Many thanks to Tor Books! OK, I was really excited when this one showed up. I really enjoyed The Last Days of Jack Sparks and am really looking forward to see what Arnopp does with this one. So many thanks to Orbit!   Walk the Wild with Me sounds like it is full of adventure and fae. Thanks so much to DAW Books! OK, I have to admit that when I first saw this I thought it was an anthologie, but it actually is more like history of science fiction focusing on major figures during the Golden Age. Thanks to Dey Street Books Oh, this one sounds like it has a couple of great horror stories in it! Looking forward to checking it out. My thanks to Harper Voyager. The Emperor’s Fist is a book 4, but the publisher mentioned it can be read…

This is another amazing haul, I am so excited about some of these books! Received for Review This book just sounds like an incredibly fun western/urban fantasy, can’t wait to read it. Many thanks to DAW books! OK, I was sooo excited when this one showed up. I loved the Blackthorn and Grim series and have been eager to read more Marillier. This new series, with a warrior-bard protagonist? I am so anxious to read it! So many thanks to Ace Books! . This one might be a tad out of my wheel house, so I may wait to hear some reviews first. But if I get the urge to read something different, maybe I’ll give it a try. My thanks to Harper Voyager for the early copy! This is another book I was excited to have show up. The synopsis sounds beautiful and magical, so I’m excited to find out if it lives up to my expectations. So many thanks to Redhook for sending this my way! Tor Books was good to me this…

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 a while since I posted a book haul post. I’ve been requesting very little lately until I get caught up a bit and get back in the swing of things. I’ve been doing better reading this past month, so am more likely to get to some of these unsolicited one. And some of them look quite good! Received for Review I love the Stranger Things show so much, and have enjoyed the other books. This one gives the backstory of Jim Hopper, which sounds pretty cool! Many thanks to Del Rey for the review copy! Pirates? Escaping unwanted marriages? Yes, please! I am planning to make time for this one as it sounds fun and I enjoyed the other books I’ve read by Jensen. My thanks to Tor Teen for sending me a copy for review! Thisn one sounds a bit different, slightly strange and mysterious. I would need to be in the right mood for this one I think, as I don’t always do well with “weird”, this one sound like it…

Received for Review I was so excited to get an early copy of Beneath the Twisted Trees! I have been loving this series and really look forward to reading this next one. Thanks to DAW Books for the early copy! This is a series I have not started yet, but I do have a copy of the first one, hopefully I will fit it in because it does sound good. Many thanks to Ace Books! Fire and Heist was a fun read, so I’m looking forward to checking out another book by Durst. This one sounds really fun. My thanks to Harper Voyager! I’ve honestly been a bit on the fence if I will read this one. It sounds really good, I just haven’t been reading at the same rate as I had been so its more a time issue. Now that I have a copy though I may try to fit it in….

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! Received for Review It’s been another couple of great weeks for book additions! These were all surprise arrivals and 3 of them are ones I I absolutely loved Torn, it was just a delight to read and I am so looking forward to Fray! Many thanks to Orbit Books! I am not always huge on re-tellings, but this one sounds really intriguing and a good mix of darkness mixed in. My thanks to Berkley for the advanced copy! Creation Machine is new to me, but it does sound like a fun read. Lent is one I have been eyeing as I love the other books I’ve read by Jo Walton. So many thanks to Tor Books for sending these my way! This is one I’ve been looking forward to. Maybe because I enjoyed the sewing magic in Torn (and looking forward to Fray), but regardless, it sounds like great fun! Thanks to Random House Children’s Knopf Books for Young Readers

It’s a prequel story about Eleven’s mother, and if there is one character I want to know more about, its obviously Eleven. I’m hoping I find the time to read this one. Many thanks to Del Rey Books! Wow! This was such an exciting package to open. I have really enjoyed the first two books in this series, and am so looking forward to this one!! Thanks to Orbit!

I’ve not read the other books in the Ian Douglas series, so I’ve got some serious catching up to do to get to this one. Many thanks to Harper Voyager! … … … Were-dragons and a heist? Fire & Heist wasn’t on my radar before, but it sounds incredibly fun! My thanks to Crown! DAW also sent a couple of unexpected books. Tales from Plexis is a collection of short stories, which I have a horrible track record of prioritizing, so I may not get to this soon, but perhaps if the mood strikes I could give one of the…

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 only been a week since my last Stacking the Shelves, but I had so many exciting books show up this week, I decided to do another one already.   Received for Review   First, there was a #WickedReads package from PenguinTeen! This was a fun one, full of books and chocolate!! (Is there a better combination?? I dont think so!) And look at those covers! I love them! And I may have to use a couple of the tattoos next week for Halloween! Many thanks to PenguinTeen and Razorbill!     … … And then I had two complete (and crazy exciting) surprises! Two Stranger Things books. One is a Behind the Scenes companion book, and the other is done in the style of a kids book (and is really fun). Absolutely love the packaging on the bigger one. In fact, I’m having a hard time bringing myself to unwrap it as I love the FAIR sticker so much. But I will, I know I will, because I also have to see what’s inside!!…
