Welcome 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 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.
