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:
The Very Secret Society of Irregular Witches by Sangu Mandanna
I couldn’t resist reading this any longer and it was SO. CUTE. I can’t wait to share my review! Thanks to Berkley for the eARC.
The Undertaking of Hart and Mercy by Megan Bannen
I am really digging the number of fantasy-romance books that Orbit has been publishing lately! This has a bit of enemies-to-lovers and even a pen pal thing going on. It sounds like such fun!
Uncanny Times by Laura Anne Gilman
This was a recent Can’t Wait Wednesday feature and shortly after that I was fortunate enough to get approved for an eARC by Gallery/Saga Press. Set during the Revolutionary War, a young witch must avoid the attention of Redcoats and the locals.
Dirty Lying Faeries by Sabrina Blackburry
I devoured this book. It’s such a fun, nostalgic read and it’s actually pretty good and seems to be a standalone (maybe?) in a larger universe. Thanks to Wattpad Books for the eARC.
The Luminaries by Susan Dennard
I love that so many upcoming releases have haunted, creepy forests. Also, am sucker for pretty cover. Thanks to Tor Teen for the eARC.
Emily Wilde’s Encyclopaedia of Faeries by Heather Fawcett
My first 2023 eARC! I looooove the synopsis for this and am hoping for strong academic rivals to lovers vibes. Thanks to Del Rey for the eARC!
Station Eternity by Mur Lafferty
I really enjoyed Six Wakes by this author and I’m excited to read about more space murder and a detective on a sentient space station. Thanks to Ace for the eARC.
At this point in time, I’m only purchasing hard copies of books I loved because my shelf space is running low. This month I added a finished copy of In the Shadow of Lightning, the independently published version of Legends & Lattes, and All of Us Villains. I have a couple more books I’ve pre-ordered or that haven’t arrived yet, but I’ll just show those off next month!
The May 2022 book from The Broken Binding subscription arrived and now my First Law Trilogy is complete! Look how cool the sprayed edges are when put together!
The June 2022 Broken Binding subscription book has also arrived and WOW! The foiling on the hardcover is incredible, even if my picture is a little awkward! They always package everything beautifully and now each book will also come with a themed bookmark. I can’t wait to read this one, as I’ve heard so many good things about the series.
The latest audiobook haul includes Of Blood and Fire and Of Darkness and Light by Ryan Cahill, Dreams Lie Beneath by Rebecca Ross, and Second Hand Curses by Drew Hayes. I also picked up a couple ebooks that were being promoted by their authors – Cold From the North by D.W. Ross and The Broken Heart of Arelium by Alex Robins.
