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

Two new arrivals in the mailbox this week . . .

Yes, I’m a total geek – I pre-ordered A Killing Frost, the 14th (wow!) October Daye book by Seanan McGuire because it came with a promo pin. And because I’m also a literary completest, I ordered Rosemary and Rue so I can (ahem) begin the series and read it through from the beginning.

Review Titles

An quiet week on the review front, which is good because I need to do a better job of catching up.

First up is a print ARC of Phoenix Extravagant [October 20, 2020] by Yoon Ha Lee, complete with a gorgeous bookmark (yes, I’m even more of a geek for bookmarks than for pins!). It’s being called an arresting tale of loyalty, identity, and the power of art with a nonbinary protagonist and an adorable mechanical dragon. Yes, please!

Next up was a pleasant surprise that transformed a sour read into something promising. After I called out a painfully transphobic story in the otherwise enjoyable Welcome to the Splatter Club anthology, the publisher reached out and offered me a copy of Crash Code, a cyberpunk horror anthology edited by Quinn Parker, a transwoman who transitioned while editing the book. How cool is that?

New Acquisitions: Digital Titles

Nothing on the digital front this week . . .
