Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews and is a way to share the books that you’ve acquired during the past week. This week I tried to cut back in the book-buying department (always so hard for me!), but I also went after an ARC copy of a book that I really want to review, and succeeded! Here’s what I got this week:
Something Red by Douglas Nicholas. Release date: September 18 2012. I just mentioned this book in my Waiting on Wednesday post and decided to contact Mr. Nicholas to see if he could send me a review copy. He was kind enough to hook me up with his publicist at Atria Books/Simon & Schuster (thanks Ariele!) and I now have a digital ARC to read. Yippee! This is a fantasy that takes place in thirteenth century England, and I can’t wait to read it.
Shadow of Night by Deborah Harkness. Purchased. I’ve been waiting for this one forever, it seems. I loved A Discovery of Witches and I’m happy that the wait between books was relatively short. A love story between a vampire and a witch, with time travel and exotic locales? What more do you need?
Gold by Chris Cleave. Purchased. Just in time for the Summer Olympics, Cleave’s third novel is set in the world of Olympic cycling. I’m not a sports fan, but I am a Chris Cleave fan, which means I’m excited to read this book.
