Welcome to Stacking the Shelves. Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga at Tynga’s Reviews. This is where we showcase books we have received or bought during the week.
Hey everyone! A day behind, but we’re here to share our wonderful find for the week. I am at the end stage of moving at the moment, so my end of STS might go quiet for a while, unless I buy some new Kindle books. I have hit a cut off for new books, but my wonderful co-blogger is sending me a box of books soon.
Batman and an empty bottle of Klingon Blood Wine (borrowed) helps out this week.
The Last Unicorn by Peter Gillis, Peter S. Beagle, Renae De Liz, Ray Dillon (gift from Kara!)
Macbeth by William Shakespeare (this came in my mystery bag from Reddit)
Hi, it’s Kara! I was going to film a vlog this week but I bit off more than I could chew with editing that manuscript, so I got behind and ran out of time. Which sucks because I honestly wanted to start vlogging more. I am still going to try.
It’s been a super hectic week with that and then the drama yesterday, and I honestly haven’t felt like blogging much, but it’s getting a bit better now that it’s finally hit home that I will be meeting Karina Halle this week. And Laura at Little Read Riding Hood, Shelley at Gizmos Reviews, Jenna at Jenna Does Books, and some other great bloggers, I am sure!
On to the books I received this week!
I received this from Ashleigh Paige at Birth of a New Witch, but it’s an ARC and hasn’t been released yet, so I am including it in my review books.
Thanks to LibraryThing and Razorbill for this one.
E-Books for Review:
Thank you to Minotaur Books.
That’s all I got this week!
On the blog this past week:
Lyn shared her summer reading list with some awesome books on Top Ten Tuesday.
Kara gave some love to two upcoming novels, a contemporary book and a fantasy-based novel for Waiting for Wednesday.
Double Post Day! Kara read The Impossibility of Tomorrow by Avery Williams on Wednesday as well and thought the sequel was not as good as the first in the series – 3 stars.
Finally, Lyn reviewed Runemarks by Joanne Harris as part of her Viking Challenge and found it so-so – 3 stars.
Links We Love:
Author Heather Jacobs writes a post entitled, “When Good Authors Go Bad,” and talks about Anne Rice and the Joanne Harris drama that went down on Friday.
Foz Meadows (again, !!!) responds to Joanne Harris’s criticism via Tumblr, and does so brilliantly, I might add.
Christina at A Reader of Fictions, writes a wonderful and brilliant post about author-blogger relations and calls for us to chime in with authors we have had great interactions with.
And a note from us personally, Lyn and I just want to thank everyone who has posted about this, sent us emails, messages, DMs on Twitter, comments via Goodreads, etc., voicing their support. It means more than you could ever imagine. This is an amazing community, and though sometimes it’s difficult and stressful, I am proud of all of you and proud to be a part of it. Each and every day I am reminded of the wonderful people that I can call real friends. Blog friends ARE real friends. Thank you so much.
