Bookshelf Roundup: 02/12/22: 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.

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!

First, up, with thanks to the team at Del Rey for a review copy of The Paradox Hotel by Rob Hart! I’ve been looking forward to this one for a while, and I think it’ll be my next read. Thank you also to the kind folks at Subterranean Press for an ARC of Scanned Clean: Rereading Michael Marshall Smith in the Digital Age by Dr. David Sweeney, a revisiting of the perceptions and representations of emerging technology in the nineties, in the context of today’s internet age.

Also thanks to Tor Nightfire for an ARC of Just Like Mother by Anne Heltzel. The synopsis of this one sounds really unsettling, definitely the kind of horror I go for. From Tor I also received a review copy of Dawnshard by Brandon Sanderson, a Stormlight Archive novella set between Oathbringer and Rhythm of War. While we wait for the next novel, I’ll take anything in this series! And thanks to Tor.com for an ARC of A Mirror Mended by Alix E. Harrow, the follow up to A Spindle Splintered. I can’t wait to continue Zinnia Gray’s story in this second installment of the Fractured Fables series reimagining some classic fairy tales.

A big thanks to Harper Audio for the new audiobooks in my digital haul this week, which includes Hunt the Stars by Jessie MihalikThe Paris Apartment by Lucy Foley, and Gallant by V.E. Schwab!
