Stacking the Shelves – May 24, 2015
Stacking the Shelves / May 24, 2015

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                 Corsair by James Cambias – This just sounded like a fun Sci-Fi book with space pirates and hackers, I’ve already listened and reviewed this one (and enjoyed it!). My thanks to Audible Studios for the review copy! Stolen Songbird by Danielle L. Jensen – I’ve heard many great things about this one. Since I don’t read a lot of YA, I had missed it until now, but I was in the mood for something lighter, and this really fit the bill and now I’ll be ready for Hidden Huntress which is coming out soon! Watch for my review of Stolen Songbird sometime this week. Once again, many thanks to Audible Studios! A Murder of Mages by Marshall Ryan Maresca – I will admit, detective stories usually don’t appeal to me a whole lot. But after enjoying The Thorn of Dentonhill so much, I’m really looking forward to checking this one out (the first in a parallel…

Stacking the Shelves / February 14, 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 normally do one of these posts every few weeks, sometimes they are months apart, but wow! This has been a busy, busy week for getting books! 🙂 I, just … honestly, I just don’t even know where to start! I want to read them all! Like now!   Unsolicited eARCs First up, I got a nice haul from Nightshade Books in my inbox the other day. The few books I’ve read from them have been quite good, so looking forward to checking these out.                    King of the Cracksmen by Dennis O’Flaherty- I have to confess with not having the best luck with steampunk, but I refuse to be biased against any sub-genres and this one sounds rather intriguing. I may wait until I see a couple of reviews of it to decide for sure where to place it in the TBR. Evensong by John Love – The couple reviews I have seen of this one so far have been really positive, and “The Dead—biologically enhanced secret operatives created by the…

Waiting on Wednesday – The Library at Mount Char
Waiting On Wednesday / February 11, 2015

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine to let us share our excitement for books coming out soon. OK, they had me at “Gaiman meets Joe Hill”. And then clenched the deal at “astonishingly original, terrifying and darkly funny”.  I didn’t even need to read past that (but I did and it sounds intriguing). Definitely looking forward to reading this one. Title: The Library at Mount Char Author: Scott Hawkins Expected publication: June 16th, 2015 Publisher: Crown     “Neil Gaiman meets Joe Hill in this astonishingly original, terrifying, and darkly funny contemporary fantasy.” Carolyn’s not so different from the other human beings around her. She’s sure of it. She likes guacamole and cigarettes and steak. She knows how to use a phone. She even remembers what clothes are for. After all, she was a normal American herself, once. That was a long time ago, of course–before the time she calls “adoption day,” when she and a dozen other children found themselves being raised by a man they learned to call Father. Father could do strange things. He could call light from darkness. Sometimes he raised the dead. And when he was disobeyed, the consequences were terrible. In the years…
