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. It’s been two weeks since my last Stacking the Shelves, and I’m happy to report I haven’t purchased anything myself in those two weeks! Here’s what’s new on my shelves (click on images to go to Goodreads):
The Mad Scientist’s Daughter by Cassandra Rose Clarke. Release date: February 7 2013 (Angry Robot). Not to be confused with The Madman’s Daughter LOL! I love the atmospheric quality of the cover, but the tagline is what really drew me in: “A Tale of Love, Loss and Robots.”
Pantomime by Laura Lam. Release date: February 5 2013 (Strange Chemistry). A circus book! Yes! Ever since I read The Night Circus, I’ve been waiting for another circus story to come along.
Talisman of El by Alecia Stone. Now available (Centrinian Publishing). Although this book has been out since May, the author is doing a blog tour in February. I’m so excited to be a part of it, since I’ve heard great things about it!
Indie book for review:
Oxford Whispers by Marion Croslydon. Now available. I was just involved in a cover release event for this book, and I was so intrigued that I tweeted Marion to ask if I could review it. I love the tagline for Oxford Whispers: “Sookie Stackhouse goes Ivy League!”
Received from the Author:
The Blood Remembers by Terry Stanfill. I reviewed Terry’s book Realms of Gold not too long ago, and she was kind enough to send me this older book of hers. It’s a gorgeous hardcover, and this small photo doesn’t do the cover justice. It’s beautiful! It also sounds like a wonderful story, and I hope to be able to read it soon.
I hope you received lots of goodies too! Please let me know.
