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.
I didn’t do a haul post last weekend, so this weekend is going to be pretty big. I’ve been swamped with editing, but I finally finished the job I was working on, so now I have time to catch up with blogging and commenting. This is where having a co-blogger comes in handy, because I bet you didn’t even notice my lack of posting, did you? Lyn is a bad-ass and she has saved my behind more than once lately.
Also in news, Lyn and I are both going to BEA this year. I get to meet my co-blogger and I am so freaking excited. We are going to tear New York City and the publisher’s parties up together. The end of May cannot come soon enough.
I’m going to be writing a post about co-blogging soon, maybe this week. I have been wanting to write this post for a while and I think it’s time.
But back to the point of this post: BOOKS!
This is my first physical ARC from Harper. I’ve peeked inside and I really think I’m going to like this one!
She Is Not Invisible by Marcus Sedgwick
My first Sedgwick. I have heard so much about him so I cannot wait to read this.
Grandmaster by David Klass
The concept of this one was so unique that I just could not stay away.
Drama Queens in the House by Julie Williams
I had no idea the protagonist was a POC but now I am even more excited! As a theatre geek and one who loved her Drama Club, I cannot wait to read this.
Red Rising by Pierce Brown
I finally got the copy I won from LibraryThing after emailing the publisher and asking what was up. I am so excited because I have seen TREMENDOUS love for this book already out there.
Burning Paradise by Robert Charles Wilson
I don’t know much about this author but I do know he’s won a Hugo Award. Also, the blurb of this book is really what made me request it. It sounds awesome and I am REALLY getting into Sci-Fi these days.
The Deepest Secret by Carla Buckley
I don’t usually read thrillers (though I used to read them A LOT) because they just feel so repetitive to me. But this one has an unusual concept and really sounds exciting to me. I won this one from LibraryThing.
Prisoner of Night and Fog by Anne Blankman
The Thickety: A Path Begins by J.A. White
On the blog this past week:
On Monday, I reviewed The Valley of Amazement by Amy Tan. I was disappointed. I was really looking forward to this book but it was long and was a slog to get through. I can say that the characters are brilliantly rendered, however.
Tuesday, we covered our top ten sequels we can’t wait to get our hands on.
Wednesday, Lyn had a discussion post on losing your pet and how to cope.
I posted a double review of Alice in Tumblr-land and Not a Drop to Drink on Thursday.
And finally, on Friday Lyn has a review for All These Things I’ve Done by Gabrielle Zevin.
Jamie goes Catalog Creepin’ in Simon and Schuster’s Spring/Summer 2014 children’s catalog.
It’s Cover Snark time over at Christina’s blog, A Reader of Fictions.
There is a BRILLIANT post from Gillian at Writer of Wrongs on How to Convert a YA Doubter to a YA Believer.
