Stacking the Shelves: 8/28/21

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:

The Orbit Goods

I’ve had a fantastic physical book haul from Orbit in the last month (Orbit folks are amazing)! You can check out reviews for The Pariah by Anthony Ryan and Wildwood Whispers by Willa Reece and I’ll soon be reviewing Shards of Earth by Adrian Tchaikovsky and The Wisdom of Crowds by Joe Abercrombie.

Vespertine by Margaret Rogerson
I will happily read anything Margaret Rogerson writes, but a story full of revenants and death magic sounds soooo spooky and awesome! Many thanks to Margaret K. McElderry Books for the eARC!

The Beholden by Cassandra Rose Clarke
Total cover request, but hey, can you even blame me? It’s about two sisters who bargain with a river goddess and eventually have to pay up and go on a quest. Thanks to Erewhon Books for the eARC!

Reckless Girls by Rachel Hawkins
This sounded like a fun tropical mystery that might turn deadly. I need more mystery/thrillers in my reading diet! Thanks to St. Martin’s Press for the eARC!

Daughter of the Moon Goddess by Sue Lynn Tan
YAY! I just featured this and then got approved on NetGalley a couple days later! This was another cover request, but it also has a fantastic synopsis so it’s basically a win-win. Thanks to HarperVoyager for the eARC (a finished copy would be most welcome too!!).

Among Thieves by M.J. Kuhn
I swear, it’s been ages since I requested this and I got a surprise approval shortly before the September 7 release date. I’m all about thieving main characters with secret backgrounds, so this should be pretty fantastic. Thanks to Saga Press for the eARC!

My Purchases:

I picked up a WHOLE series (minus the newest release) because The Written, Pale Kings, and Dead Stars Part 1 and Part 2 were free and are also a prequel to The Forever King which begins a new story arc. I started off by picking up the audiobook of The Forever King, which is amazing and I’ll be reviewing it very soon! I intend to read the first four books as time allows over the next few months (hopefully).

I have been on a JUNK FOOD BOOK BINGE! It’s been so much fun! I picked up A Touch of Darkness and A Touch of Ruin by Scarlett St. Clair, which are the first two books in a Hades and Persephone romance retelling. I can’t wait to review these – it’s going to be crazy fun to write up! I also had to pick up A Dance with the Fae Prince by Elise Kova which was actually pretty darn good. The Atlas Six is my latest “Amazon/Instagram made me buy it” book pick and it’s not bad either and is totally in line with the dark academia trend. 

Last but not least, the rest of my audiobook haul! I picked up an audio copy of Shards of the Earth, which is ultimately how I ended up enjoying the book. I also picked up Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman to see what all the (now old news) hype was about. Angel Killer by Andrew Mayne rounds out the list and is a pretty exciting thriller thus far!
