Bookshelf Roundup: 02/26/22: 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!
Another quick update this week! I have a lot to get through in March, which means only saying yes to/requesting my must-reads and so far I’ve been pretty good at resisting temptations. Speaking of must-reads though, I was excited at the arrival of Nettle & Bone by T. Kingfisher. It’s definitely one of my most anticipated reads this spring. A big thank you to Tor Books for the ARC.
Also new this week were a couple of surprise arrivals from the kind folks at Simon & Schuster, with the middle grade titles The Code Breaker by Walter Isaacson with Sarah Durand, a young readers adaption of the author’s bestselling book about Jennifer Doudna and the development of CRISPR, as well as Charlie Thorne and the Curse of Cleopatra by Stuart Gibbs, the newest volume of the author’s series about a thirteen-year-old genius who travels the world solving history’s biggest mysteries. These will probably go on my daughter’s shelf.
In the digital haul, first I want to highlight Living Memory by David Walton. The author got in touch with me earlier this week and offered me a review copy. I’ve enjoyed several of his books in the past, so I’m really looking forward to check this one out – not to mention dinosaurs! Thanks, David!
Also thanks to Macmillan Audio for the following listening copies: The Atlas Six by Olivie Blake, as well as a couple of thrillers that caught my eye, The Younger Wife by Sally Hepworth and The Golden Couple by Greer Hendricks and Pekkanen. And finally, with thanks to Brilliance Audio, I received an ALC of Sea Storm by Andrew Mayne, third of the Underwater Investigation Unit series.
