Bookshelf Roundup: 01/22/22: 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.
Small update this week. I haven’t been reading a lot but also falling way behind on a ton of reviews because of general lack of time and just some stuff going on in real life right now, so apologies if I’m not as responsive when it comes to replying to comments or visiting blogs. There might also be fewer posts on the blog until life smooths out again when hopefully I’ll be able to get back on a more regular schedule.
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!
Towards the end of the year last year, Angry Robot was so kind as to thank their reviewers with any book of their choosing from their vast catalogue, and I just knew I had to pick up The Phlebotomist by Chris Panatier. I’ve definitely regretted not being able to read this one, especially after all the glowing reviews, so the choice was super easy!
With thanks also to DAW Books for a review copy of The Amber Crown by Jacey Bedford. I love that it’s a standalone epic fantasy, and I’ve always wanted to read more by Jacey Bedford!
With thanks also to Macmillan Audio for ALCs of Mickey7 by Edward Ashton, Finlay Donovan Knocks ‘Em Dead by Elle Cosimano, Cold the Night, Fast the Wolves by Meg Long, and Waking Romeo by Kathryn Barker that all came in this week! Can’t wait to listen to them all.
