Bookshelf Roundup: 01/23/21: 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!
A few exciting arrivals this week. With thanks to Redhook and the kind folks at Sparkpoint Studio for this ARC of The Ladies of the Secret Circus by Constance Sayers. I loved the author’s debut A Witch in Time, and even though this new book looks quite a bit different, I’m very excited to check out a historical about a magical circus.
Thank you also to Tor.com for sending me an ARC of We Shall Sing a Song into the Deep by Andrew Kelly Stewart which was pitched to me as “a haunting post-apocalyptic fantasy set on the world’s last nuclear submarine.” Very intriguing…
And with thanks to Subterranean Press for The Best of Harry Turtledove, a massive tome collecting twenty-four stories from an author renowned for his alternate history fiction. The cover is fabulous!
Only one audiobook in the digital haul this week, but it’s one I’ve been looking forward to for a while. A Stranger in Town by Kelley Armstrong is the sixth book of the Rockton series, which has become one of my favorite thriller series in recent years. My thanks to Macmillan Audio for the ALC.
Tales from the Hinterland by Melissa Albert (4 of 5 stars)
The Push by Ashley Audrain (3.5 of 5 stars)
