Bookshelf Roundup: 07/17/21: 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!

Back from my break and feeling refreshed and well-rested! Here’s what arrived in my mailbox this past week. First, with thanks to Minotaur Books for a finished copy of The Guilt Trip by Sandie Jones! I’ve already read a couple books by the author and I’m really enjoying her thrillers, so needless to say I’m pretty curious to see what this one will have in store.

Thank you also to the kind folks at Kaye Publicity and Thomas & Mercer for this ARC of Constance by Matthew FitzSimmons, described as a mind-bending thriller in which a breakthrough in human cloning technology becomes our eponymous protagonist’s waking nightmare.

And finally, much thanks to Orbit Books for an ARC of Blood of the Chosen by Django Wexler, book two of his Burningblade & SilverEye series!

Nothing in the digital haul this week, which means after the avalanche of ALCs I added last week, my audiobook TBR gets a much needed break!


Come With Me by Ronald Malfi (5 of 5 stars)
For Your Own Good by Samantha Downing (4 of 5 stars)

  2. As exciting as huge piles of new books can be I have to imagine it’s also very refreshing to have a smaller one every so often to give you a little time to breath between books. 🙂 Very glad to hear your break went well!
