Stacking the Shelves: 11/27/21

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:

LOL @ my little feet in the pic

Orbit has once again graciously provided me with some wonderful new books to check out. Engines of Empire by R.S. Ford and The Justice of Kings by Richard Swan are two books that I’m going to be reading much sooner than expected since I got some sweeet physical ARCs. The finished copy of the The Liar’s Knot by M.A. Carrick is even lovelier in person and I’ll be posting a review very soon!

Castles in Their Bones by Laura Sebastian
This sounds brilliant! Four princesses are sent across the lands to marry as one expects princesses to do, but then they will bring down the kingdoms they are sent off to so that their mother may rule everything. Many thanks to Delacorte Press for the eARC.

The Might by Siri Pettersen
Book three in the Raven Rings series is high on my most anticipated list because each book keeps getting better and better! Many thanks to Arctis Books for the eARC.

Age of Ash by Daniel Abraham
I’ve been wanting to pick up a Daniel Abraham series and it seems like I’ve timed things right and get to start a brand new epic fantasy trilogy. Can’t wait to read about the city of Kithamar and it’s denizens. Thanks to Orbit for the eARC!

The Carnival of Ash by Tom Beckerlegge
Cadenza is a city of poets and it’s on the brink of war with it’s rival city – Venice. The premise really has me curious! Thanks to Solaris for the eARC!

Midnight in Everwood by M.A. Kuzniar
I’ve already feature this book in my Waiting on Wednesday post series and now I have an eARC courtesy of HQ/Harper 360. A ballet dancer is swept into an alternate world where she must find a way to escape a sadistic king. 

In A Garden Burning Gold by Rory Power
This cover is GLAM! Not gonna lie, that’s what drew me to this book, but then I stayed for the prospect of two near immortal twins trying to save their kingdom. Many thank to Del Rey Books for the eARC!

My Purchases: 

Only a few physical book purchases recently. I picked up A Court of Silver Flames because I ordered these GLORIOUS dust jackets from Nerdy Ink and needed a hard copy of this installment. I actually featured Vespertine in my last Stacking the Shelves post, but we are going to admire it one more time, and I also had to snag a hard copy of Cytonic

In anticipation of reading Cytonic I also picked up the first two novellas, Sunreach and Redawn. I’ve also grabbed a couple audiobooks in the last month – Unsouled by Will Wight and The Wisdom of Crowds by Joe Abercrombie. I couldn’t find the motivation to read the physical copy of The Wisdom of Crowds, but Steven Pacey’s narration is always spot on and I flew through the audiobook!

  1. That’s a pretty good haul!! I also got an Engines of Empire and Age of Ash. Can’t wait for next year to start! What’re the odds it turns out better than 2021? 😂

    Also, I browsed through your previous STS’s—how come this is the only time we get to see your wee feet?
