Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews, and is a fun way to share the books you’ve acquired over the past week or two. I’ve had a pretty good two weeks as far as my book haul goes! I received several awesome things in the mail, I won two books, I bought a bunch of cool stuff, and I was approved for some much coveted titles on Edelweiss! So, let’s get to it. Here’s what’s new on my shelves:
For Review Via Edelweiss:
Sublime by Christina Lauren. This was a Waiting on Wednesday pick for me, and I’m so excited I was approved. (That’s my new review request strategy, by the way. I’m going to try to only request books that I feature on Waiting on Wednesday!). If you don’t know, “Christina Lauren” is the pen name for two authors, and they are the writers of the Beautiful Bastard series. I haven’t read those books yet, but I’m sure lots of you have.
100 Sideways Miles by Andrew Smith. Super excited to read this! I have yet to read an Andrew Smith book, but he’s a hot topic right now in the publishing industry. I’m going to try to read Grasshopper Jungle soon if I can squeeze it in.
For review from publishers:
The Barrow by Mark Smylie. Wonderful Pyr publicist Lisa Michalski noticed a comment I left about The Barrow on another blog (me gushing about how much I wanted to read it) and she sent me a copy! Love her! Thanks Lisa:-)
Scan by Walter Jury & S.E. Fine. Walter Jury is a pen name for the guy who’s producing the Divergent movie, so I’m very curious to see what this book is all about. I’m going to also be on the tour for this book in April.
Hero to Zero by Zach Fortier. I reviewed a couple of Zach’s books when I first started blogging, back when I pretty much reviewed nothing but indie books. Since then I’ve agreed to read his other books, just because I really like him and he’s got quite a unique voice.
The Anxiety of Kalix the Werewolf by Martin Millar. Big thanks to Nathan at Fantasy Review Barn for this door-stopper of a book! I adore Martin Millar and it’s been a couple of years since I’ve read anything by him.
Wicked After Midnight by Delilah S. Dawson. I won this from The Qwillery, thank you so much, Sally! I’ve heard damn good things about Ms. Dawson’s books, and I’m excited to start this series. I realize this is the third book in the series, so I’ll be buying the first two soon.
Blood Oranges and Red Delicious by Kathleen Tierney. Some of my favorite bloggers (Mogsy, Tabitha and Nathan) love these books, so it was inevitable that I would eventually get around to reading them. I’ve already read Blood Oranges and loved it!
Annihilation by Jeff VanderMeer. Here’s another book I’ve been seeing a lot of great reviews for, so I had to buy it. I love that it’s very short, so I shouldn’t have trouble finding time to read it. If you love fantasy and you haven’t read any Jeff VanderMeer yet, I highly recommend him.
Blackbirds by Chuck Wendig. I know, I’m a huge Wendig fan, but I still haven’t read his most beloved series. I’m gonna take care of that soon:)
That’s it for me this week. What about you? What’s new on your shelves?
