Welcome to Stacking the Shelves! Brought to you by Tynga’s Reviews, it’s a fun way to share the books you’ve acquired over the past week with other readers and bloggers. This week I received (click on book covers to go to Goodreads):
For Review from NetGalley:
The Blue Blazes by Chuck Wendig. Release date: May 28 2013 (Angry Robot). I’ll admit I have not read any of Chuck’s other books, but I keep hearing great things about them. I’m so glad this is the first in a series!
Sea Change by S. M. Wheeler. Release date: June 18 2013 (Tor). OK, this story is about a girl who finds a kraken! This is an adult book, not YA, and I love the cover.
The World of the End by Ofir Touché Gafla. Release date: June 25 2013 (Tor). This story sounds amazing and reminds me a bit of Richard Matheson’s What Dreams May Come: a man’s wife dies and he goes to the afterlife to try to get her back. Wow.
Big thanks to Tor and Angry Robot for these titles:)
ARC received for review:
The Lives of Tao by Wesley Chu. Release date: April 30 2013 (Angry Robot). I adore Angry Robot, and I was lucky enough to get a print ARC of this debut title! I will most likely be giving it away when I post my review, so stay tuned!
Received for Blog Tours:
These books are both for May blog tours. Bethany Lopez is a new author to me, but I read the first book in Marion Croslydon’s series, Oxford Whispers, and really enjoyed it.
Escape Theory by Margaux Froley. You might notice this is a different cover from the finished book. I’m actually not sure whether the publisher just sent this to me, or whether I won it in a contest! Oh well, I’ve been dying to read it, so I don’t care where it came from! But thanks to Soho Teen either way!
Wish by Beth Bracken & Kay Fraser. I did win this from the publisher, Capstone. This is a middle grade novel (ages 10-14) that is gorgeously illustrated by Odessa Sawyer. Wow, I seriously don’t even remember entering a contest for this book (!) but I’m glad I did. I will most likely pass this along to someone, either in a giveaway or to my school library. Or not! It’s beautiful, I may just keep it for myself:)
That’s it for me! I’d love to see what you have on your shelves:)
