Stacking the Shelves: 11/10/18

Stacking The Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews and it’s all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. You can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!

Received for Review:


I’ve received so much awesome book mail from Orbit since my last Stacking the Shelves post, so I figured it was time to share!

Empire of Sand by Tasha Suri

I featured this when I received an eARC, but since I got a finished copy you can look at it again. This is an Indian-inspired fantasy that will be out in just a matter of days now!!

The Hod King by Josiah Bancroft

I really need to catch up on The Books of Babel series so I can read this one! This is arguably one of the most unique fantasy series to come about in the last few years.

Splintered Suns by Michael Cobley

I don’t pick up too many sci-fi books but this one really caught my eye. I mean, it’s basically a treasure hunt to find the key to a lost civilization BUT IN SPACE.

The Wolf in the Whale by Jordanna Max Brodksy

I enjoyed JMB’s exploration of the Greek gods, so I’m doubly excited that this is about an Inuit shaman that meets up with a Viking. In 1000 A.D. I dearly hope it’s as good as the early reviews show!

The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi

I haven’t read this author’s other books, but the synopsis said Paris in the late 1800’s and imagined that would be pretty fantastic. Then I read the synopsis and found that there would be treasure hunts… YESSSS. Thanks to Wednesday Books and NetGalley for the eARC!

White Stag by Kara Barbieri

This has the whole Goblin King thing going on, which I typically enjoy so I snatched this one when it came up on NetGalley awhile back. Again, thanks to Wednesday Books for the eARC.

The Ingenious by Darius Hinks

A city set adrift in time and space, turned into a prison for those trapped within. That plus the gorgeous cover are all I really needed to request this book. Thanks to Angry Robot for the eARC!

A Memory Called Empire by Arkady Martine

I featured this in a Waiting on Wednesday post several weeks ago and am just as excited about it now as I was then! Murder, political upheaval, and alien cultures make this sound like a promising read – thanks to Tor for the eARC!

Romanov by Nadine Brandes

A re-imagining of the story of Anastatsia Romanov with a dash of magic and romance thrown in. Thanks to Thomas Nelson for the eARC.

The Shadowglass by Rin Chupeco

This has been a decent series and I’m looking forward to seeing how it wraps up with this installment. Many thanks to Sourcebooks Fire and Edelweiss for the eARC!

My Purchases:

I’ll be honest, the most exciting thing here is the glorious Subterranean Press edition of Golden Son by Pierce Brown that arrived earlier this week!! I’m quite excited for the pre-order and cover reveal for their edition of Morningstar, which should be coming along soon. I also picked up a copy of Kingdom of Ash to round out my hardcover collection. Last but not least, I picked up The Consuming Fire from Audible once my new credits arrived.

  1. I haven’t heard of The Books of Babel before, but it sounds interesting, so I’m going to see if I can find a sample 🙂

    White Stag has a cool cover! But I think I’m cautious – the last Goblin King-related book I read turned out to be a disaster 😀
