Bookshelf Roundup 07/04/20: Stacking the Shelves & Recent Reads
Bookshelf Roundup is a feature I do every weekend which fills the role of several blog memes, like Stacking the Shelves where I talk about the new books I’ve added to my library or received for review, as well as It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? where I summarize what I’ve finished reading in the last week and what I’m planning to read soon. Mostly it also serves as a recap post, so sometimes I’ll throw in stuff like reading challenge progress reports, book lists, and other random bookish thoughts or announcements.
Received for Review
My thanks to the publishers and authors for the following review copies received, and be sure to click the links to their Goodreads pages for more details and full descriptions!
Some more new arrivals in the mail this week. First, with thanks to Saga Press for a finished copy of The Only Good Indians by Stephen Graham Jones. I can’t wait to read this one! In fact, I’ll probably start it as soon as I’m finished drafting this post, and hopefully by the time it goes live I’ll be finished or almost done.
Next up, I was thrilled to receive a paperback copy of Kushiel’s Dart by Jacqueline Carey from the kind folks at Tor Books. Guys, this has got to be one of my favorite fantasy novels EVER! I was excited to hear the series was getting a re-issue, not to mention also glad to have a copy of my own now, since the one I read was when I was in college, and an ex-boyfriend made off with it, grrr.
And finally, with thanks to Simon Pulse for this awesome review copy of Sia Martinez and the Moonlit Beginning of Everything by Raquel Vasquez Gilliland! This one didn’t strike me as my cup of tea originally, until I found out about the sci-fi twist. This could be interesting.
This week, I also received a few exciting new audiobooks in the digital haul. Most of these are pretty dark, including Night Train by David Quantick, a horror novel I’ve been looking forward to for a while, with thanks to Audible Studios for the listening copy. I’m also covered for thrillers, with thanks to Macmillan Audio and Brilliance Audio, from whom I received review copies of His & Hers by Alice Feeney and Left for Dead by Caroline Mitchell, respectively.
From NetGalley, I also finally caved and grabbed The Ghost Tree by Christina Henry as well as A Deadly Education by Naomi Novik, both slated for release this September and should set the mood nicely for fall. My thanks to Berkley and Del Rey Books!
