Bookshelf Roundup: 05/14/22: 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!

Thank you to William Morrow for a review copy of the new thriller Blood Will Tell by Heather Chavez. I absolutely adored her debut No Bad Deed, so the arrival of this was very exciting!

With thanks also to the amazing team at Orbit Books for the following pretties! August Kitko and the Mechas from Space by Alex White was a new one to me, but I’ve enjoyed the author’s work before, and hey, I’m up for anything with mecha. I’m also intrigued by the delightful synopsis of Half A Soul by Olivia Atwater, the first book of a new series called Regency Faerie Tales. Sounds like the perfect mood read! And last but not least is For The Throne by Hannah Whitten, the second novel of Wilderwood. The first book For The Wolf was very promising, and I’m looking forward to see how the series will develop in this sequel.

With thanks to Hachette Audio, I received a trio of listening copies this week. I’m going to have plenty to keep me busy with Child Zero by Chris Holm, Kaikeyi by Vaishnavi Patel, and The Beloved Girls by Harriet Evans.


Insomnia by Sarah Pinborough (4.5 of 5 stars)
Amongst Our Weapons by Ben Aaronovitch (4 of 5 stars)

  1. Happy to see you enjoyed the Pinborough too. Can’t wait to see what you make of the Gwynne. I decided not to carry on with the Whitten series as book one just didn’t work for me. I’ll be keen to see how you enjoy it though and how the story develops.

  2. Had to pass on Kaikeyi, so I can’t wait to see how you like it! And… I’ve been having some issues getting into Hunger of the Gods, so… interested in what you think of that, too:)


  3. OOh nice new reads! I still need to read For the Wolf myself! Though I suspect I will enjoy it! At least I am hoping I will! Lol. Hope you enjoy all the lovely new reads!

    My StS will be up tomorrow, so stop by then if you can!

    Have a GREAT day!
