Stacking the Shelves: 5/21/22

Stacking The Shelves is a weekly (or in my case monthly) meme hosted by Reading Reality 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 audiobooks and ebooks!


Received for Review: 

As usual, Orbit keeps me well supplied with new books to read. I’ve already torn through both For the Throne and Half a Soul, so keep an eye out for reviews in the near future!

Half A Soul by Olivia Atwater
A delightfully fun Regency fantasy romance. Thanks to Orbit for the eARC – keep an eye out for a review soon!

Across the Sand by Hugh Howey
It’s been 6 years since Howey’s last book was released and I’m so excited to see how his writing has grown/changed since then! Thanks to Harper Voyager for the eARC.

Killers of A Certain Age by Deanna Raybourn
Aged assassins must defend themselves against the upstart youngsters trying to take them out. I love the vibe of this – many thanks to Berkley for the eARC.

The Martyr by Anthony Ryan
Yesssss I cannot wait to start this! One of my most anticipated sequels of 2022. Alwyn Scribe started out as a bastard brigand and has risen to sword protector of Lady Evadine Courlain. Thanks to Orbit for the eARC.

Sign Here by Claudia Lux
This is about a guy who works in hell and needs one more soul to get his big promotion. I’m sure this going to be weirdly humorous, though it’s also labeled as horror on Goodreads. Really interested in this one – thanks for the eARC, Berkley!

The Poison Season by Mara Rutherford
This was something I requested largely because of how pretty the cover is. I’m hoping this will be a fun YA fantasy with a nice dash of romance. Thanks to Inkyard Press for the eARC!

The Book of Gothel by Mary McMyne
With a tagline like “Everyone knows the tale of Rapunzel in her tower, but do you know the story of the witch who put her there?”, I knew I had to read this. Many thanks to Redhook for the eARC.

Wild is the Witch by Rachel Griffin
I tried to resist this… and then I got one of those Netgalley emails where if you’re one of the first 500 people you get to download the book. And here we are. This is about a witch’s curse gone wrong and her attempt to right her mistake. Thanks to Sourcebooks Fire for the eARC.

High Times in the Low Parliament by Kelly Robson
This was an irresistibly fun sounding novella and at only 160 pages, I decided I could make some time for it. Many thanks to Tordotcom for the eARC.

My Purchases:

On the left I have the two Fairyloot Adult Book Only subscription books for April and May, plus the latest subscription book from The Broken Binding, which is Joe Abercrombie’s Before They Are Hanged! And on the right, you can see I went a bit wild adding books to my shelves after I did a big shelf clean up. I decided to snag a hardcover of Daughter of the Moon Goddess after the sequel was announced and I also picked up the first three Raven Cycle books in hardcover, as it’s one of my favorite YA series.

And lastly, my audiobook/ebook haul from the last month! I’ve been slowing down on my audiobooks simply because I haven’t had the time thanks to the sheer number of ARCs I’ve been reading lately. I’ve finished up Fevered Star and The Wisteria Society for Lady Scoundrels an have Whispers Under Ground waiting for when I want to return to the world of Peter Grant. I also picked up the ebook of Along the Razor’s Edge by Rob J. Hayes recently as he was offering it for free. It’s also on Kindle Unlimited if you use that service.
