Bookshelf Roundup: 03/19/22: 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

Work has been picking up so my reading time has been going down, but hopefully this will give me some time to catch up reviews. 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!

Huge thanks to the amazing team at Tor.com publishing for this gorgeous review copy of All the Horses of Iceland by Sarah Tolmie as well as an ARC of A Prayer for the Crown-Shy by Becky Chambers, the follow-up to A Psalm for the Wild-Built.

Thank you also to kind folks at Wunderkind PR and 47North for an ARC of The Peacekeeper by B.L. Blanchard, which was new to me. Description says it’s a murder mystery featuring an Ojibwe detective set in an alternate never-colonized North America, which sounds totally awesome.

With thanks also to Subterranean Press for a review copy of Among Strangers by Robert Silverberg. This book isn’t up on Goodreads nor on the publisher’s own website yet, so I don’t know much about it, but according to the blurb this is an omnibus collecting four of the author’s stories that explore the strange, the alien, and the unexplored (that cover certainly matches that description).

And in the digital haul, with thanks to Penguin Audio for listening copies of Curfew by Jayne Cowie as well as The Impossible Us by Sarah Lotz.

  2. The Peacekeeper sounds brilliant. I’ll definitely keep an eye for it. I’m very surprised to see a new book by Robert Silverberg as I had no idea he was still writing.

  3. The Peace Keeper sounds excellent – I’ll keep my eye out for that one.
    And, I was side-eyeing the Lotz book but have been trying to be careful – especially after March when I requested rather a few books all releasing on the same day!
