Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews, and is a great way to share the books you’ve acquired over the past week(s) with other bloggers. It’s been two weeks since I’ve participated, but I’ve got some great books to share today.
How Beauty Met The Beast by Jax Garren. Release date: November 19 2012 (Carina Press). I’m on a Beauty and the Beast kick right now, mostly because of the new CW television series that I’m really enjoying. So I’m anxious to read any book based on that story. This is more of a novella, it’s only about 100 pages, so it should be a quick read.
Magisterium by Jeff Hirsch. Now available (Scholastic Press). I requested this from Edelweiss months ago, and just got approved to read it, even though it’s already hit the shelves. But I’m still looking forward to it, even if I might be a little late on my review. And it’s one of my favorite book covers of the year!
The Merchant of Dreams by Anne Lyle. Release date: December 18 2012 (Angry Robot). I love being part of the Robot Army! Many thanks to Angry Robot for the auto-approvals!
Guardians of Stone by Anita Clenney. Release date: December 4 2012 (Montlake Romance). I absolutely loved the last Montlake book I read (Edge of Oblivion) and so I was thrilled to receive another of their titles. I’ll be reading this in November. Thank you Susan Stockman at Montlake! Look for a giveaway and author interview next month.
Indie Books for Review:
Tears of Min Brock by J. E. Lowder. This fantasy about a 14-year-old girl’s journey sounds really good. I’ve cut back on the amount of indie books I’m reviewing, because you never know what you’re going to get, but this has some great reviews.
Fighting the Storm by Jarrah Loh. This is not exactly the kind of book I usually read and review, but this martial arts story captured my attention, for some reason. Loh has written a non fiction book for Harper Collins about Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) and lives in Australia, so maybe those are the reasons I decided to read this!
The Diviners by Libba Bray. I love Libba Bray, and I’ve been waiting for this book for a long time.
The Twelve by Justin Cronin. The Passage is one of my favorite dystopian/vampire novels, so it’s no wonder how excited I am to read this follow-up.
Whew! Now off I go to my cave to read…what did you get on your shelves this week?
