Bookshelf Roundup 10/17/20: 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.
I’m back from my trip and well-rested and ready for some Spooktastic Reads! I have quite a few reviews to catch up on, so I’ll be busy getting those up for the next week. In the meantime, here are this week’s new arrivals.
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!
With thanks to Orbit for sending me an ARC of The Tower of Fools by Andrzej Sapkowski! I love his Witcher series but I’m a little nervous about starting this new one because I’ve been seeing some mixed reviews. I’m still looking forward to reading it though, and I’ll for sure be keeping my expectations in check. Thank you also to Minotaur Books for Deep Into the Dark by P.J. Tracy, the start of a brand new mystery thriller series. I’ve been seeing some great things about how twisty this one is already, so I’m excited to check it out! Last but not least, huge thanks for Tor for sending me an ARC of The Echo Wife by Sarah Gailey! I’ve head my eye on this one for a while, and I’m looking forward to reading it.
In the digital haul, I received four audiobooks: first, listening copies of Kingdom of the Wicked by Kerri Maniscalco and The Ministry for the Future by Kim Stanley Robinson, with thanks to Hachette Audio. Next, with thanks to Penguin Random House Audio I received The Camelot Betrayal by Kiersten White, the sequel to The Guinevere Deception, as well as Memento by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff, a novella of The Illuminae Files! This one I simply can’t wait to listen to!
