The Bookshelf Roundup is a feature I do every weekend that doubles as a few memes on the blog, e.g. Stacking shelves where I talk about 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 read in the past week and what I plan to read in the near future. Basically it also serves as a summary postso sometimes I add things like reading test progress reports, book lists, and other random book thoughts or announcements.
Health Update: Apparently I have both bronchitis and laryngitis, which explains why I’ve been feeling like crap. The last week has been brutal. Even though I stopped being sick a while ago, the lingering cough remains and still gets pretty bad. As a result, it took a toll on me physically and I didn’t sleep well either. I lost my voice. So I’ve pretty much taken the week off from anything outside of work and real responsibilities, including reading and blogging, but this week I’m hoping to feel rested enough to finally get back in the saddle.
Received for review
I thank the publishers and authors for the following review copies received, and be sure to click on the links to their Goodreads pages for more details and full descriptions!
First off, a big thank you to Tor Nightfire or for sending me the ARC of Lute by Jennifer Thorne! You may remember this book from the recent Waiting for Wednesday where I talked about how excited I was to see this atmospheric horror.
Thanks to Titan Books, I also received a review copy “Ricky’s Hand” by David Quantick.. It sounds so weird and wonderful, and based on my experience with the author’s books, he will definitely answer that.
Thanks also to the kind folks at Minotaur Books for the finished copy The Sandy Jones Blame Game. This will be my fourth book by the author and her thrillers never disappoint!
And earlier this week, thanks to Union Square, this spectacular arrival arrived in form The House with the Golden Door by Elodie Harpercontinuation Wolf’s lair! AHHHH I can’t wait for this series to continue!
Several new digital audiobooks courtesy of Simon & Schuster Audio. That’s a lot of horror The Life of a Nanny by Stephen Graham Jones, which is an audio exclusive, so of course I couldn’t say no! I couldn’t resist the request either A tale by Stephen King. I haven’t been this intrigued by his new release in a long time.
