Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books we are adding to our shelves, whether they be physical or digital. This includes books bought (my wife would say I buy too many), borrowed (a rare occurrence), and received for review (which I’m trying to reign in).
New Acquisitions: Paperback Treasures
A huge batch of new (to me, at least) books this week as we finally had time to pop over the border and pick up the 2 shipments of used books waiting at my PO box.
So, on the top row we have Dragon Death and Duel of Dragons to complete my Dragonsword portal fantasy trilogy from Gael Baudino (which seems to have gotten lost in our last move); and Young Miles and Cordelia’s Honor, exactly what I needed to kickstart my winter sci-fi reading with Lois McMaster Bujold and her Miles Vorkosigan Adventures.
The middle row includes Tales of Nevèrÿon by Samuel R. Delaney, which is one of those fantasies I feel like I should have read ages ago; Taming the Forest King, the first instalment of an epic fantasy trilogy from Claudia J. Edwards; The Better Part of Valor, which gives me the first 2 books in Tanya Huff’s Valor series for further winter sci-fi reading; and The Singer’s Crown, the first of 2 books in an historical fantasy saga from Elaine Isaak.
Finally, the bottom row brings The Broken Crown, The Uncrowned King, and The Shining Court, the first 3 mass market paperback editions of Michelle West’s epic fantasy Sun Sword saga, which I’ve been wanting to read for ages.
Just the one new review title this week, but it’s a cool one, a signed ARC from an author I’ve been reading and reviewing for years now.
Night Things: Nowhere to Hyde by Terry M. West is fourth in The Magic Now Series, which explores New York City as a macabre melting pot for vampires, werewolves, zombies, ghouls, and more. Personally, Night Things: Undead and Kicking has been my favorite of the series so far, but I’m anxious to read Terry’s take on Jekyll & Hyde.
New Acquisitions: Digital Titles
Nothing on the digital front this week. I’ve got more than enough to keep me reading!
