Stacking the Shelves: 12/21/19

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 has been very good to me since my last Stacking the Shelves post and (unless otherwise specified) all these great looking books are from them! If only I could take off a week and do nothing but read!

The Light of All That Falls by James Islington

After what feels like forever, the finale to the Licanius trilogy has arrived! It’s a monster of a book and I do hope I can get to it soon.

Blood of Empire by Brian McClellan

This was another of my most anticipated books (and series finales) of the year. I loved Blood of Empire and have already reviewed it – click on the link above to check it out.

Legacy of Ash by Matthew  Ward

And this lovely chunker has been released in digital format, but the paperback print format will be out in April 2020. This is the beginning of a new fantasy trilogy that has great reviews!

The Ranger of Marzanna by Jon Skovron

This sounds like it’s going to be a great book with a strong theme of sibling rivalry. I love the cover and was so excited to receive an ARC!


Bright Steel by Miles Cameron

This is another one I’ve already read and will have a review up soonish. There are SO many series finales in this haul which is pretty awesome. This was a good one with a satisfying conclusion.

Crownbreaker by Sebastien de Castell

What will Kellen and Reichis do in this final book of the Spellslinger series? Will the shadowblack overtake Kellen? Will Reichis get to eat all the biscuits he wants?

Where Gods Fear to Go by Angus Watson

WOW ANOTHER SERIES FINALE. I guess all the authors were trying to wrap things up before the end of the decade. I’m very excited to check this out and see what happens in the West of West.

Wyntertide by Andrew Caldecott

This is the second book in the Rotherweird series. I felt the first book worked well enough as a standalone, so I’m not in a huge hurry to get around to this, but at the same time I’m intrigued. Many thanks to Jo Fletcher Books for the finished copy.

Walk the Wild with Me by Rachel Atwood

This was a lovely arrival from DAW that I had previously featured after getting an eARC. You can check out my review HERE.

The Guinevere Deception by Kiersten White

I’ve been so excited for this and received an eARC right before it was released. Thanks to Delacorte Press.

Shorefall by Robert Jackson Bennett

I loved Foundryside and am STOKED to check this out! Thanks to Del Rey Books for the eARC!

The Sin in the Steel by Ryan van Loan

With a description featuring pirate queens and describing the two characters as being like Holmes and Watson I immediately snagged a copy of this. It sounds fantastic, though it won’t be out until July and it doesn’t even have a cover yet.

My Purchases:


I won’t go into detail on the individual books, but these are from the various book boxes I’ve been trying out. I love the exclusive editions that these come with – altered covers, sprayed edges, and interior dust jacket art galore!


These are two books I’ve had my eye on for awhile and decided to pick them up after Thanksgiving. The Flavor Bible is a great reference for what flavors pair well together and Gran Cocina Latina is a monstrous cookbook full of recipes from the length and breadth of South and Central America.

And, finally, here are all the audiobooks I’ve picked up since mid-October. I’ve had such a wealth of new books to listen to and they’ve all been great so far!
