Bookshelf Roundup 07/11/20: 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!
Earlier this week, a surprise arrived from Subterranean Press in the form of Princess Floralinda and the Forty-Flight Tower by Tamsyn Muir. The author also wrote Gideon the Ninth, and while that book and I got off to a rocky start, by the end I was having a lot more fun, and that’s reason enough to make me keep this ARC on my radar.
I also don’t recall if I had requested a copy of Eventide by Sarah Goodman, but when an ARC ended up landing on my doorstep, I was nonetheless thrilled beyond belief. I’ve been wanting to check this one out!
From the kind folks at Del Rey, I also received a finished copy of Malorie by Josh Malerman, sequel to the acclaimed Bird Box. I already finished this one, and despite not having read the first book, I really enjoyed it! Stay tuned for my review, which should be up in a couple of days.
And what’s this? Only one book in the digital haul this week? Well, I guess lately I’ve been painfully aware of my huge TBR of listening copies I still need to get through, so I’ve been extra diligent in resisting making new requests. With thanks to Listening Library, I snagged a review copy of The Damned by Renée Ahdieh, I can’t wait to listen to this one!
