Bookshelf Roundup 09/19/20: 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.
A small haul this week, but it’ll give me the much needed time to catch up! Here are the new books added to my library…
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!
Huge thanks to Saga Press for a finished copy of The Loop by Jeremy Robert Johnson. A mix of science fiction, horror, and thrills, the synopsis of this one sounds so insane! Really looking forward to checking it out. And also thanks to Simon & Schuster Children’s Publishing for an ARC of These Violent Delights by Chloe Gong, described as a retelling of Romeo and Juliet set in 1920s Shanghai. Holy crap, this looks amazing!
After two weeks of massive hauls in the my digital review pile, only a couple new listening copies to add to the TBR this week, whew! But they’re both seriously awesome and exciting, starting with Battle Ground by Jim Butcher with thanks to Penguin Audio, as well as The Original by Brandon Sanderson and Mary Robinette Kowal with thanks to Recorded Books
