Bookshelf Roundup: 07/03/21: Stacking the Shelves & Recent Reads

  • by

Bookshelf Roundup is a feature I do every weekend which fills the role of several blog memes, like Stacking the Shelves where I talk about the new books I’ve added to my library or received for review, as well as It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? where I summarize what I’ve finished reading in the last week and what I’m planning to read soon. Mostly it also serves as a recap post, so sometimes I’ll throw in stuff like reading challenge progress reports, book lists, and other random bookish thoughts or announcements.

Received for Review

My thanks to the publishers and authors for the following review copies received, and be sure to click the links to their Goodreads pages for more details and full descriptions!

Okay, it’s going to be a quick update this week! With thanks to Titan Books for City of Iron and Dust by J.P. Oakes, a dark fantasy about a Fae rebellion against their Goblin oppressors, as well as Come With Me by Ronald Malfi, described as a small-town horror about a murdered woman and her husband who discovers she may not have been who he thought she was at all.

With thanks also to Orbit for a review copy of Notes from the Burning Age by Claire North. Even though her stuff has been hit or miss for me in the past, she always has such unique ideas so I’m interested to see what this one’s all about.

In the digital haul, thank you to Penguin Random House Audio for Star Wars: The Rising Storm by Cavan Scott, the latest novel in The High Republic series; Not A Happy Family by Shari Lapena, which I’m super excited about because she always writes good thrillers; and The Final Girl Support Group by Grady Hendrix, one of my most anticipated releases this summer!
