Stacking the Shelves
Stacking the Shelves / June 8, 2019

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! 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! 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

Stacking the Shelves / October 20, 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 was really excited about this one, and have already read and loved it. My review will be up this week! Thanks to Orbit for sending this my way! This one sounded like a great (and fun) change of pace. Many thanks to Saga Press and Wunderkind for the review copy! I’ve always really enjoyed the Green Rider series, and the books are typically 5 years apart, so I was happy to see the chance to read more in that world with this novella. Plus, love the artwork! My thanks to DAW books! … I’m behind on this series, but everything I’ve read by Scalzi, I have enjoyed, so I should get on it. Thanks to Tor! This one sounds like an exciting read! I’m really looking forward to reading it. Thanks again to Tor! … And WOW! Check out this package from Tor for the #FearlessWomen tour!I was really excited to get this big box of goodies. And even more exciting,…

Top Ten Tuesday – Bookish Worlds I’d Never Want to Live In
Top Ten Tuesday / June 5, 2018

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme by That Artsy Reader Girl.This feature gives a weekly Top Ten list. We all love lists, right? This week’s theme is: So, this week was supposed to be “Books I Decided to DNF (did not finish) too Quickly”, but quite frankly, I find that hard to tell without finishing, and ultimately, any book I DNF’d, I had a reason for. So, I am going with the topic from last couple weeks instead: Bookish Worlds I’d Never Want to Live In Beyond Redemption – Magic is based on insanity, so the more unstable and crazy a person is, the more powerful they are. Yikes! Bite – A post apocalyptic world so harsh their are roving gangs of cannibals. Uhhh…. Nope!! Demon Cycle – The thought of demons just materializing around you is pretty scary. No thanks! The Fireman – A plague that makes people spontaneously combust. Sounds horrifying. Red Rising – The cast system is very repressive and the lower casts are treated as slaves to support the higher.  And honestly, there are some major downsides to being in the higher cast as well. As much as I love Darrow, I can’t say I’m interested in living…
