Stacking the Shelves (23)

STSWelcome to Stacking the Shelves, hosted by Tynga’s Reviews! I love to see what books other bloggers get during the week, and I love to share my new books as well. This week was a particularly fun week for me, because in addition to some new review titles I got a couple of surprises in the mail.

A huge thanks to Lucy at The Reading Date for this amazing stack of ARCs! I entered her contest and frankly forgot all about it. When she told me I’d won the “Anti-Valentine” box, I was thrilled.  She also threw in a cool Comic Con bag! Thanks Lucy:)

Alma Katsu was kind enough to include me in The Companion Club, a group of Adair followers who will help her promote her amazing trilogy. She sent all of us a package with pins, stickers, postcards and other goodies, including a note with this intriguing statement: “Please wear your pin proudly and if you draw blood with it—someone else’s of course, not yours—so much the better.” If you’ve read The Taker and The Reckoning, you’ll understand:) The third book in the trilogy, The Descent,  will be out in 2014.

I pre-ordered my copy of Scarlet by Marissa Meyer from Amazon, and for doing so I got a surprise Scarlet lip gloss in the mail! Thanks to MacMillan for making my daughter very happy:)

e-Books for review from NetGalley & Edelweiss: (click on book covers to go to Goodreads)

Beautiful GoodbyeZenn ScarlettClub MonstrosityThe Sweetest DarkStoker's Manuscript

Beautiful Goodbye by Nancy Runstedler. Release date: July 23 2013 (Dundurn). I had never heard of this publisher before, but I believe they are better known for their non-fiction titles. I don’t have a lot of info on this book, but from the Goodreads description it’s a YA paranormal about three teens and a Ouija board.

Zenn Scarlett by Christian Schoon. Release date: May 7 2013 (Strange Chemistry). I remember getting the news about this acquisition from Angry Robot, and I’m really excited to have a review copy in my hands. You’ve got to click on the cover and read the book description. It’s out-of-this world! I’m really looking forward to this one.

Club Monstrosity by Jesse Petersen. Release date: April 29 2013 (Pocket Star).  This book sounds hilarious! It’s about a group of monsters who form a support group. Wow.

The Sweetest Dark by Shana Abé. Release date: April 9 2013 (Bantam). Set in 1915 England, this story takes place in a boarding school. It’s a historical paranormal and is recommended for fans of Libba Bray (!) and Lauren Kate (!) and gets a blurb from Melissa Marr (!)

Stoker’s Manuscript by Royce Prouty. Release date: June 13 2013 (Putnam Adult). This historical novel blends real events with a mystery that spans many years. I love that is revolves around the novel Dracula.

  1. WOAH, look at that pretty stack! Partials – great book. I’m hoping to have my copy of Fragments come this week – all depends on the shipper. Hmm, I have Nerve, but I haven’t read it yet. Cute Scarlet lip gloss! That’s some fancy swag! Well, you got a lot – I hope you enjoy everything! 😀

    My STS Post!

  2. I have more room on my bookshelves and you have new books to read. Everybody wins! 🙂 Great books this week. Club Monstrosity and The Sweetest Dark sound especially intriguing. Happy reading!
