Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by TyngaReviews.com and is a book haul post to show off everything you purchased or received for review
Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor
Gravity (The Taking) by Melissa West
Shadowland by C. M. Gray
The Steel Queen by Karen Azinger
This week I got the much awaited Days of Blood and Starlight, the second book in the Daughter of Smoke and Bone series. I loved the first book, Daughter of Smoke and Bone. You can read my review here. I can’t wait to read the second book. I didn’t even bother to see what it was about. I want to go in completely blind.
The next two books I got were free. Gravity is a science fiction book about a girl who breaks a pact with “Ancients”. that leads her on a path of adventure and thrills. Shadowland is a King Arthur book. I like King Arthur books. They’re like fairy tale retellings. It’ll be interesting to see which direction this author takes.
The Steel Queen is a book submission. I read a sample and I quickly became engrossed. Some of the reviewers likened the book to a G. R.R. Martin book. I’ve never read Martin so I won’t be able to make that comparison. I still look forward to reading it.
One last thing, R. T. Kaelin is compiling an anthology of short stories. The proceeds of the sales will go to the survivors of Superstorm Sandy. While the authors are working on the stories, they’ve set up a site at IndieGoGo to gather donations. Hopefully he’ll email me when the compilation is complete, in the meantime you can pre-order the compilation at that site.
That’s it for me! Have a great weekend! See you next Saturday for Stacking the shelves!
