Bookshelf Roundup: 03/12/22: 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
Right now I’m so behind on reviews it’s not funny! I’m still reading quite a bit, but I have five or six books that still need to be written up so maybe it’s a good thing that I have another light week in the mailbox/inbox to share today. 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!
With thanks to Orbit Books for a finished copy of We Cry For Blood by Devin Madson, I’m looking forward to continuing this amazing series! And thank you also to Del Rey for sending along an ARC of The Daughter of Doctor Moreau by Silvia Moreno-Garcia. If you’re aware of my love for this author, you’ll know how excited I am to read this one! And as always, much love to the incredible team at Subterranean Press who supplied me with an ARC of The Assassins of Thasalon by Lois McMaster Bujold. This is of course the next installment in the tales of Penric & Desdemona series, and at over 450 pages it’s the longest one yet and probably a novel in its own right.
Just one audiobook in the digital haul this week, but it’s a good one from an author I’ve been wanting to read for a long time. My thanks to Random House Audio for an ALC of Sea of Tranquility by Emily St. John Mandel.
Hunt the Stars by Jessie Mihalik (4 of 5 stars)
The Paris Apartment by Lucy Foley (4 of 5 stars)
What I’ve Been Reading
Have you heard of or read any of the books featured this week? What caught your eye? Any new discoveries? I hope you found something interesting for a future read!
Each of the authors here are ones I’ve yet to read and yet very much want to, especially Bujold. I hope things are going well with you and that you have a little down time to relax every so often.
Oooh, I had Daughter of Doctor Moreau on pre-order after reading Mexican Gothic and falling in love with the author, even went off and read the original story, but I felt I needed to reduce my preorders a bit and that one just had to make the chop. So definitely looking forward to your thoughts on this one!
Nice haul 😀 I’m really looking forward to The Daughter of Doctor Moreau!
I’ve finally added Devin Madson’s We Ride the Storm to my reading queue in preparation for Wyrd and Wonder, and seeing that you call this series ‘amazing’ fills me with great anticipation 🙂
OOh nice! The Daughter of Doctor Moreau sounds intriguing! I still need to read Mexican Gothic though! I’ve been trying hard not to buy more books from authors before I’ve read what I’ve got, never know if I may not like a style as well as I think.
Hope you enjoy all of these awesome new reads!
My StS will be up tomorrow, so stop by then if you can!
Have a GREAT day!
Old Follower 🙂
I’m beyond excited to start Sea of Tranquility! And I may squeeze it in early😁
You know, after seeing how many books Tammy and Rebecca got recently your haul is quite impressive! Although self-control was never one of my strong suits either;) I hope your schedule clears up and gets less stressful and busy so you can catch up 😁
I am SO curious about Dr. Moreau!!!
Nice stack! I received the eARC of “Sea of Tranquility,” too. I hope to start reading it BEFORE its publication!
I also can’t wait to read Sea of Tranquility and see what this author comes up with next.
Good luck catching up with your reviews.
I’m definitely excited about a more full length Desdemona and Penric story. Enjoy your reading.
