Bookshelf Roundup: 06/18/22: 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 short update this week. Kids got out of school this week for the summer and it’s already been exhausting! But the books are still coming in, and first off with thanks to Orbit Books for sending along The Martyr by Anthony Ryan, book two of The Covenant of Steel series.

Up next, with thanks Head of Zeus for an ARC of Lost in Time by A.G. Riddle. I once read this great book by the author called Departure which had these weird freaky Lost vibes, and from its description this sounds like it would be similar in nature except it deals with time travel. I’m definitely intrigued about that big twist they’re teasing.

And finally, with thanks to Tor Books for a finished copy of In the Shadow of Lightning by Brian McClellan. In case you missed it, I reviewed it earlier this month and really enjoyed it. I think it’s a great start to a promising new series.

Nothing in the digital pile this week, but that’s probably a good thing because the next week’s haul should be pretty large and I’d like to use this much needed downtime to catch up with what’s already in my TBR.


A Mirror Mended by Alix E. Harrow (3 of 5 stars)
Outside by Ragnar Jónasson (2 of 5 stars)

  1. OOh nice! Those are all new to me one! I hope you enjoy them all!

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

    Have a GREAT day!

  2. Oooo I want that hardcover!! Need to start the Martyr still, too.

    What’s next week? I think most of my arcs were for June, dunno how much I have next month, but it can’t be as many. Which is good as I don’t have time to finish them and your kids haven’t been helping me for some reason…
