Bookshelf Roundup: 10/30/21: 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!
Super short update this week, as there were only two recent new arrivals in the mailbox and nothing to add to the digital haul, which is actually quite amazing. Maybe I’m just getting better at controlling my requesting impulses? (Nah!) 🙂 Anyway, with thanks to Subterranean Press for an ARC of The Long Game by K.J. Parker is a novella which tells the story of an adept who over time develops a bond with a demon that his order is charged to oppose.
Next, my thanks to the kind folks at Ballantine Books for sending along this gorgeous copy of Ready Player Two by Ernest Cline in celebration of the novel’s upcoming paperback release. Just in time for Sci-Fi Month, in early November we’ll also be hosting a giveaway for your chance to win your own copy, so stay tuned!
What I’ve Been Reading
