Stacking the Shelves / February 8, 2015

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly feature all about sharing your good luck in book acquisitions! So here’s what came my way. I realized I have enough new books piled up, it was time to do another Stacking the Shelves post! I feel like I have so many books piling up that I really want to read right away, that I just don’t know where to start sometimes. 🙂   Digital Acquisitions – ARCs                    The Skull Throne by  Peter V. Brett (Del Rey) – I may have had a few issues with Daylight War, but since I really enjoyed the first two, I am still looking forward to continuing this series. Quite excited to get a review copy and to see what’s in store for Arlen, Leesha and the rest. Flex by Ferrett Steinmetz (Angry Robot)- Quite excited to see Angry Robot back! And this one sounds quite different and exciting (kind of what I am used to from Angry Robot). So excited to check it out! I mean, blurbs mention Breaking Bad and people are snorting magic! Many thanks to Angry Robot for the copy! The Thorn of Dentonhill by Marshall Ryan Maresca…
