Bookshelf Roundup: 06/12/21: 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!
My thanks to Titan Books fors ending me a copy of Wendy, Darling by A.C. Wise. My weakness for Peter Pan inspired stories strikes again! Crossing my fingers this will be good. I’ve heard this is a pretty dark retelling, so I’m definitely intrigued.
Huge thanks also to Nightfire for this ARC of The Last House on Needless Street by Catriona Ward! This one sounds so spooky, I’m really looking forward to it!
Earlier this week I also received The Keepers by Jeffrey B. Burton with thanks to Minotaur Books. At first glance I thought they had sent me the book before, but then I realized this is the sequel to The Finders! I just got confused because that adorable golden retriever on both covers looked practically identical. I still need to read the first book of this series called Mace Reid K-9 Mysteries, but I’m pretty excited to start.
In the digital haul this week, a couple of exciting audiobooks. Thank you to Penguin Audio for an advance listening copy of Survive The Night by Riley Sager. I read Home Before Dark last year which was my first book by the author, and I can’t wait to read more of his work.
Also thank you to Hachette Audio for Notes from the Burnigng Age by Claire North. Her books are always pretty out there, so I’m curious to see what this one has in store!
As well, thanks to Macmillan Audio for a chance to check out a listening copy of The Therapist by B.A. Paris. This thriller has been getting some huge buzz lately, and it’s been making me curious.
