Stacking the Shelves: 9/14/19

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

Received for Review:


Orbit books really came through for me all at once and most of these books (unless otherwise specified) are courtesy of their awesome publicity team! Thank so much!

Grave Importance by Vivian Shaw

This has been one of my absolute favorite paranormal fantasy series and the grand finale has arrived! I’ve already read it, loved it, and now just have to review it!

Prudence by Gail Carriger

I really enjoy Gail Carriger’s books to put some lightness back into my reading list and this was no different. This is the first book in the Custard Protocol series following the daughter of Alexia Maccon and you can check out my review HERE.

Dark Forge by Miles Cameron

This is just a haul of epic, much awaited sequels! Dark Forge is the second book in the Masters and Mages trilogy and you just can’t go wrong with Miles Cameron.

The Wolf of Oren-Yaro by K.S. Villoso

This was a surprise arrival earlier this week. I’ve actually had my eye on this book since it’s already out in ebook format but decided to wait since my TBR is already huge. I guess it was just meant to be.

Turning Darkness Into Light by Marie Brennan

This is actually my current read and if you liked Marie Brennan’s Lady Trent series, you should check this out too! Many thanks to Tor for the finished copy!


A Little Hatred by Joe Abercrombie

ABERCROMBIEEEEEE! I’ve already read this beauty and can’t wait to share a review soon! I love that this is a hardcover and it will look so epic on my shelves.

The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow

I’ve seen stellar reviews for this book and can’t wait to check out some awesome portal fantasy! Also, that cover is just SO lovely, how could anyone resist?

The True Bastards by Jonathan French

I’m pretty stoked to have gotten an eARC of this one. I’m pretty excited to see how Fetching stacks up as both the new leader of the Bastards and the main character. Thanks to Crown for the eARC!

Bone Crier’s Moon by Kathryn Purdie

I almost keeled over when I actually got approved for an eARC of this! I almost NEVER get the YA books that I’m INCREDIBLY EXCITED about. I absolutely love the cover art for this and can’t wait to dig in after I get through the huge stack of September releases I’m drowning in! Thanks to Katherine Tegen books for the eARC!

My Purchases:


A Dress for the Wicked by Autumn Krause

I admit, I love a book with a touch of fashionable flair as part of the plot, but I’m honestly not sure this will be a winner. I received this in my August Bookish Box subscription and it’s not something I would have picked up on my own, though I may be surprised and really enjoy it!

I also picked up these really lovely little Wordsworth Edition classics. I got The Wind in the Willows, Treasure Island, Black Beauty, and A Christmas Carol.

And lastly, my audiobook purchases over the last month. I picked up Murder Theory, which is the third book in The Naturalist series, Quill by A.C. Cobble which is a mystery type book that very much reminds me of the show Carnival Row (at first), and The Dragon Republic by R.F. Kuang, which is my current read.
