September 28, 2019

Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts, and of course ebooks!

If you want to find out more about Stacking The Shelves, please visit the official launch page!

Physical Review Copies:

  • Pet — Awkaeke Emezi [YA fantasy/horror]
    • I’m hearing some pretty big hype for this novella! I think it tackles a lot of heavy themes such as child abuse.
      ✨ own-voice Black rep ✨
  • The Library of the Unwritten — A.J. Hackwith [adult fantasy]
    • In Hell, there’s a library where all unfinished stories go to rest. Claire’s job as Head Librarian is pretty easy (aside from retrieving escaped book characters) until one book stirs up a terrible war between Heaven, Hell, and Earth.
  • Rosemary and Rue (10th Anniversary Ed.) — Seanan McGuire [adult fantasy]
    • I’ve been meaning to read this forever, so what better time to pick it up than now when the anniversary edition is releasing? I adore Seanan’s work as everyone knows, so I can’t wait to meet the infamous Toby Daye!
  • Salvaged — Madeleine Roux [adult horror/sci-fi]
    • Honorary mention to this one because I actually hauled the eARC quite a while back, but the publisher was so kind and sent me a paperback copy this week, too! Alien parasites will always be insta-add stories for me.

Digital Review Copies:

  • Nothing this week!

Kindle Purchases/Freebies:

  • Nothing this week!

Physical Purchases & Gifts:

  • Nothing this week!

Library & Kindle Unlimited Borrows:

  • The Agony House — Cherie Priest [YA horror; physical library loan]
    • I’m not sure what put this on my radar, but it sounds cool! It’s an illustrated novel about a girl and her family who move into a rundown old house in the wake of Katrina.
  • Smoke Gets in Your Eyes — Caitlin Doughty [adult nonfic; physical library loan]
    • Another mortician book!
  • Anya’s Ghost — Vera Brosgol [YA paranormal graphic novel; physical library loan]
    • Anya makes a new friend: a ghost!
  • The Raven Boys — Maggie Stiefvater [YA paranormal; digital audiobook, Hoopla]
    • I’m going to try to reread this entire series via audio before the next book comes out!
  • Unnatural, Vol. 3 — Mirka Andolfo [adult fantasy graphic novel; Hoopla]
    • I think this might be the last book in the series? I’m kind of sad about it!
  • The Holy Wild — Danielle Dulsky [adult nonfic/spirituality; Hoopla]
    • This is either going to be great or a disaster, but either way, I had Hoopla checkouts that were about to expire.

      Thank you!

      Ugh, I am so sorry! 🙁 My comments have been such a nightmare. I’ve been working with the settings and trying to have people test out different things here and there, but I can’t seem to get it sorted!

    I absolutely ADORED The Holy Wild earlier this year, so I hope you enjoy it, as well!

      Thank you! I wasn’t totally sure what I should expect from it but hearing that you adored it gives me a much more optimistic set of expectations! 😀

    All these look good! The Library of the Unwritten looks exactly like the kinda book I’d read late at night and then have trouble sleeping 😄

      😂 Oh noooo! I’m not sure if it’s meant to be creepy or fantastical but it sounds fun either way!

        Mostly creepy as I’ll lying in bed and staring off into the dark and trying to sleep 😂😂
