Stacking the Shelves: 10/16/21

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:

Orbit kindly provided me with finished copies of Blood of the Chosen by Django Wexler and The Seven Visitations of Sydney Burgess by Andy Marino. 

An Unintended Voyage by Marshall Ryan Maresca
I’m excited to see where voyages outside of Maradaine take Corrie Welling! I’m betting it’s going to be a thrilling story if the first few chapters are anything to go by! Thanks to DAW for the eARC.

The Rot by Siri Pettersen
I’ve already finished this up and will be posting a review soon! It’s an excellent story and it makes me want to get my hands on even more translated works. Thanks to Arctis for the eARC.

The Bone Shard Emperor by Andrea Stewart
Aren’t we all just reading this book for more Mephi? Thanks to Orbit for feeding my animal companion addiction!

Edgewood by Kristen Ciccarelli
Family curses, dark forests, and fae. A trio too good to resist. Many thanks to Wednesday Books for the eARC.

The Liar’s Knot by M.A. Carrick
I really want to check this one out soon (AKA before the actual release date). I also really want that mask on the cover – SO gorgeous! Thanks to Orbit for the eARC.

A Botanist’s Guide to Parties and Poisons by Kate Khavari
This is a wayyyy early copy – it doesn’t come out until June 2022! A research assistant must clear her mentor’s name in the poisoning death of another professor’s wife. Thanks to Crooked Lane Books for the eARC.

Saint Death’s Daughter by C.S.E. Cooney
A royal assassin who is allergic to violence and accidentally brings the dead back to life?? Yes!!! Much thanks to Solaris for the eARC.

Absynthe by Brendan Bellecourt
A WWI veteran must hone his latent telepathic abilities to stop the President’s nefarious plans. GOOD LORD, WHAT A SUMMARY. Can’t wait to check out this unusual book from DAW!

My Purchases:

I hate stickers on book covers 😦

I always go wander around bookstores on vacation, even if it is just a Barnes & Noble and this time I could actually buy stuff because we didn’t fly!! I picked up the rad 10th anniversary edition of Leviathan Wakes, the special edition of Empire of the Vampire, and American Cider. Vespertine arrived in the mail just before I started working on this post – it was so good I had to buy a physical copy. 

I’ve had quite the audiobook binge lately! I finished up the Jessica Blackwood trilogy with Name of the Devil and Black Fall. Empire of the Vampire was a great book with excellent narration, as was The Man Who Died Twice. I just picked up Heavy Lies the Crown and I’m expecting good things from this one too!
