Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted byTyngaReviews.com and is a book haul post to show off everything you purchased or received for review.
Rippler by Cidney Swanson
Libriomancer by Jim C. Hines
Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
Wake by Amanda Hocking
Taken by Claire Farrell
The Written by Ben Galley
Camille by Tess Oliver
Dearly Departed by Lia Habel
Let’s start off this week’s haul with a free book that I’ve had my eye on for awhile. Rippler is about a girl with an ability to turn invisible. She wants to keep her ability secret, but she also wants to keep the boy she’s falling for safe and it might come down to a choice between the two. I’m interested in seeing how that plays out.
Libriomancer, Throne of Glass, and Wake were all pre-orders that fell in my lap at the same time. I decided to read Throne of Glass first as you probably know. I’m reading Wake now. Wake is a mermaid book. Libriomancer is a fantasy book involving library magic.
Taken was released this week as well. I’ve enjoyed all of Claire Farrell’s Ava Delaney books so I’m looking forward to this installment. I’m not sure what it’s about, but I’ll soon find out. That’s how much faith I have!
The Written was a free book and it has to do with magic and tatoos. It’s a high fantasy novel. Camille is a werewolf book. It’s got an interesting twist on werewolves. The main character Camille is a werewolf hunter. Camille and another character, a doctor, are researching a cure for lyncanthropy. They encounter Nathaniel Strider, a victim of a werewolf bite and they endeavor to cure him before the full moon.
Dearly Departed is a zombie book. It’s got a new twist on zombies though. They’re not all mindless flesh eating monsters. Some of them are cognizant. Nora is a young lady of New Victoria in the year 2195 and Bram Griswold is a zombie. Sparks ensue. I’m interested in seeing how that plays out. The second book comes out in September.
Not a huge haul, but not a bad one either. That’s okay. My TBR pile is obscene!
