Stacking the Shelves (38)


Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews, and is a fun way to share the books you’ve received during the week, whether via publisher, the library, a purchase or something won! I got some AWESOME things in the past two weeks, and I’m very excited to share them with you.

From the publisher for review:


The Oathbreaker’s Shadow by Amy McCulloch. Actually, I received this from Amy herself! She put out a call to bloggers that she was offering up copies of her book. I’ve had this book on my radar for quite some time and was thrilled when she sent me a copy. Then I remembered that Amy is a British author and she was kind enough to ship a copy from England! I owe you big-time, Amy! Thank you for making a U.S. blogger so very happy! And I don’t even think this book is available in the U.S. yet:)

Cracked by Eliza Crew. Cracked was a Waiting On Wednesday pick for me recently, and I’m so excited to be able to read Eliza’s debut. I’m also going to be interviewing her closer to the book’s release date in November.

The Deaths of Tao by Wesley Chu. Another Angry Robot/Strange Chemistry book that I’m thrilled to read, The Deaths of Tao is the second in Wesley’s series. I’m ready for more ass-kicking alien-ninja action…

From the author:


Vicious by V.E. Schwab. Oh you guys, I was over the moon when Victoria selected me to be part of her ARC tour for Vicious. This is the first time I’ve been on an actual ARC tour, whereby one ARC is sent to a blogger/reader and after that person reads it, they send it on to the next person on the list. And so on. I was lucky enough to be third on the list, and I have since received, read and sent Vicious on its merry way! Victoria also threw in a pack of character cards for each person on the tour. Vicious was so wonderful, so perfectly constructed, it’s one of my favorite books so far this year. My review will be up in a day or so.

From the publisher via Edelweiss/NetGalley:

The Weirdness by Jeremy Bushnell. This debut about a writer who makes a deal with the devil is being compared to Victor LaValle, a writer I am very fond of. This is being published by a small publisher that I’m not familiar with (Melville House) but I’m willing to give it a try.

The Wicked by Douglas Nicholas. I gave Nicholas’ first book in the series five stars, and I’m so thrilled to see he’s got another book coming out. This is the sequel to Something Red, and I can’t wait to read it!

Alienated by Melissa Landers. Oh wow, I jumped up and down when I got approved for this title! I’ve been dying to read Alienated since I featured it in a WoW post long ago.

Edge of Darkness by J.T. Geissinger. The fourth book in her Night Prowler series, a series I just adore. J.T. is the queen of paranormal romance in my opinion! If you haven’t read her books, you really should:)

I’d love to hear what’s on your shelves! Leave me a link in the comments.

  1. That guy on the cover of Edge of darkness looks so much like Jonathan Ryhs Myers!

    And I know this may sound weird, but I haven’t seen another author with my name, ever. There’s another Eliza out there!

    I still have a plethora of books left over from BEA…BUT I did start Kiya which so far is pretty good.

  2. That’s so cool that Amy sent you her book from England. Looking forward to seeing what you think of Alienated and Cracked. Enjoy your new goodies 🙂

  3. Alienated is the one that stands out the most of me. I don’t believe I’ve seen it before, so I’ll definitely have to learn more about it.

    You lucky girl what a haul! It’s so nice when you get a book directly from the author – it really shows you are making an impact I think!

    • Hey Jeremy, thanks for stopping by! As you can tell by the title of my blog, I’m a huge Buffy fan, so now I’m looking forward to reading your book even more:)

  5. I think Buffy is a very good example of writing that manages to establish and flesh out a supernatural world without losing sight of the emotions that matter in the “real world.” I really tried to do the same.

    • I agree, I think everything Joss Whedon does makes it easy for the audience to connect with the “real” characters, and when you do that, it’s much easier to accept the supernatural aspects of his shows.
