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.
