Bookshelf Roundup 01/15/23: 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!

Big thanks to Subterranean Press for a couple of surprise ARCs. Great Work of Time by John Crowley is a reissue of the award winning novella which first appeared in the author’s collection Novelty published in 1989. Then there’s The Dispatcher: Travel by Bullet by John Scalzi which is the third book in the sequence. This one sort of came out of nowhere until I remembered that the book was originally released as an Audible original last year, and soon the print will be released in the spring.

Also thank you to amazing folks at Berkley, I received a finished copy of How to Sell A Haunted House by Grady Hendrix. I’ve already devoured this one and a review is planned for next week. It was pretty intense!

With thanks also to Gallery/Saga Press for sending me a finished copy of Don’t Fear the Reaper by Stephen Graham Jones. Very excited to start this follow-up to My Heart Is A Chainsaw very soon!

Just one audiobook in the digital haul this week. With thanks to Macmillan Audio for a listening copy of Hell Bent by Leigh Bardugo. This is the sequel to Ninth House and I’m looking forward to continuing the series.


Episode Thirteen by Craig DiLouie (5 of 5 stars)

  1. I think I’m becoming more of a book collector than a book reader. I keep reading all these great reviews of Grady Hendrix books and they seem like just the sort I’d enjoy so I buy them… but I’ve yet to try one. 🙂


  2. I’m looking forward to your review of Scalzi’s book. I really enjoyed the first Dispatcher but haven’t had the time to listen to the others.
