Stacking The Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews and it’s all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. You can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!
Can it just be stated that I was rather surprised when my request for this was granted? Such an excellent surprise! If you’re a regular here, you already know my feelings on MJS’s books, so no need to repeat again. Thanks uber-much Del Rey!
The grand conclusion folks! I still haven’t decided if I’m rooting for the humans, the dragons, or the lizard people… The cover indicates some epic dragon battles and I couldn’t be more thrilled to find out how this wraps up. Thanks to Ace for the finished copy, which will looks absolutely dashing on my shelves.
I so hope this book is as amazing as I hope it will be. It features gladiatorial combat and whenever a book has the arena style thing going on I turn into a blood-thirsty Roman patrician screaming from the seats of the Colosseum. Bonus points for it being space-gladiators in this one. Thanks to DAW for the finished copy.
I loved the first three books in this series so I’m hoping that the extension on this series will pan out well. I’m sure things are going to get wild in this book and I can’t wait to see if the Great Library of Alexandria will end up burning to ash at last. Thanks to Berkley for the finished copy.
I’ll be honest… I don’t remember if I requested this book or not. Either way, it sounds pretty interesting and I’ve never read a Seanan McGuire book (though I’ve read books under her pen names). It’s the story of a hitch-hiker ghost which seems cool. Thanks to DAW for this one.
I’ve read (well, listened to) two of Adrian Tchaikovsky’s books this year and enjoyed both. I had the opportunity to get my hands on a copy from Solaris and jumped on it! Thanks for posting this all the way from the UK, Solaris!
This is another author I’ve heard praised pretty frequently, so I decided this was a good book to start with. I devoured this book in a couple days and will post a review eventuallY! Thanks to Berkley for the lovely finished copy!
After spending some time browsing around Books-A-Million I picked up Tower of Dawn and One Blood Ruby from their discount section. I had to keep my SJMaas collection up to date, especially since this installment is one of the best in the series. The other book has fairies, so yeah. I bought it and intend to read this series when there’s a slower book release month.
I also picked up this awesome new National Wildlife Federation Field Guide to Trees of North America. It has good quality pictures of bark, leaves, flowers, etc and it’s a decent size to haul around in a hiking bag.
I also picked up a few new audiobooks. Children of Time and Jane Steele were great and I”ll be posting reviews at some point in the future (been kind of slow lately). Warlock Holmes is weird and funny and a nice tribute to the Sherlock Holmes legacy.
Lastly, I have sort of an honorable mention. The pre-order for Golden Son cam up on Subterranean Press AT LONG LAST and you better believe I pre-ordered that sucker. It’s even more beautiful than the first one and it’s not sold out yet if you’re interested!
