Stacking the Shelves

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

Yes! Finally! After a month that only saw one lonely book arrive in the mail, a trio of packages landed ti brighten a tough week.

Blackthorne, volume 2 of The Malorum Gates, catches me up with Stina Leicht’s flintlock fantasy.

The Tower of the King’s Daughter & Hand of the King’s Evil fill 2 of the gaps in my Outremer collection by Chaz Brenchley (still 2 books in the mail). Moonscatter is the second book of The Duel of Sorcery Trilogy by Jo Clayton, arriving before Moongather (which is still in the mail).

The Forbidden Land & The Fathomless Caves complete my Witches of Eileanan series by Kate Forsyth. The Cutout by Francine Mathews is a rare non-SFF purchase for me, a CIA thriller with a female protagonist.

Review Titles

A trio of review titles this week…

Goldie by Danni Maxwell is a fantasy romance that I’m reading for a tour stop this week, featuring a young woman cast out of her village, a mythical creature known as Squeak, a nasty beast called the Gromas, a pack of wolves, and a girl with lips as red as blood.

Kushiel’s Dart is the first of the new mass market reprints of Kushiel’s Legacy by Jacqueline Carey – and one of my favorite reads of all time. I first encountered it long before my blogging days, so I’ve never had the chance to give it a proper review . . . but a reread and review of the entire trilogy awaits!

New Acquisitions: Digital Titles

A trio of digital downloads this week…

Her Toys by Sara Morgan is a full-length novel about a psychopathic stalker who picks the wrong victim, a strong girl who takes crap from no one . . . and who turns him into her personal assassin.

I had the pleasure of chatting with Anna Ritter about her various interconnected sagas, so I decided to pick up a copy of American Matriarchy: The Complete Novel and find my way into Bella Springs – which she described as “more realistic” and “an example for women across the country.”

I’ve enjoyed Natasha Bender’s stories in the past – particularly her fantasy, fairy tale, horror, and cartoon themed erotic romances – so there was no way I could pass up her Smut: 140 Book Erotica Mega Bundle Collection.

  1. I’m regretting not requesting Kushiel’s Dart now, I sort of let that email go by. But I know it’s really long and I just don’t have time to read it right now.


  2. I really need to finish rereading the first Kushiel trilogy… I remember tearing through them when I first read them, but my attention span is so bad now?!
