Stacking the Shelves

Posted September 5, 2015 by Nicky in General / 24 Comments

Oh goodness, Stacking the Shelves snuck up on me this week. How’s everyone been doing? I thought I’d been behaving myself, but I just got a Kindle Voyage (so shiny) and a bunch of books and I took part in a book swap and… yeah.

Review copy

Cover of The Traitor Baru Cormorant by Seth Dickinson

Could not resist when I saw it was on Netgalley, after Kameron Hurley’s tweets about it.


18006496 Cover of The Bullet-Catcher's Daughter by Rod Duncan Cover of The House of Shattered Wings by Aliette de Bodard

Cover of The Story of Kullervo by J.R.R. Tolkien Cover of Junk DNA by Nessa Carey Cover of Shrike: The Masked Songbird by Emmie Mears

Cover of Twelve Kings (In Sharakhai) by Bradley Beaulieu Cover of Sorcerer of the Wildeeps by Kai Ashante Wilson

I’m quite excited about all of these, but especially The Story of Kullervo, because it deeply influenced the way Tolkien told the story of Turin, and The Sorcerer of the Wildeeps, because’s novella line looks amazing.

Book exchange

Cover of The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater Cover of Wraeththu Omnibus by Storm Constantine

Well, the Storm Constantine books are actually an omnibus, but I count them as separate books.

Aaand finally…



I think that’s everything! Quite the week. Hope everyone else has had exciting hauls too! <3

    I’ve nearly finished the Kalevala, which contains the main source material for Kullervo, so now I’m excited about the Tolkien version for your reason and to see how he handled the Finnish tale.

  2. Great haul! I got Queen of Shadows this week too but need to finish Heir of Fire first. I really want to read both Traitor Baru Cormorant (trying my best to stay away from Netgalley!) and House of Shattered Wings but I’m going to Bristol Con at the end of the month so trying (lol!) to save my pennies.

    Happy reading 🙂

    • Me too, I haven’t even finished the short stories/novellas yet, either. Bookalanche! I’ve been trying to stay away from Netgalley too, but oh, couldn’t resist this one. And ooh, enjoy Bristol Con! I thought about going.

  3. It starts with maybe a freebie or two, or a swap or a preordered book…and before you know it you find yourself with a fair sized book haul for the week! It just sneaks up on you! Pesky little blighters!

  4. Awesome haul this week 🙂
    I’m seeing a lot of Queen of Shadows on the blogs. I admit I haven’t read the series, but I have the first book sitting on my shelf. Hopefully I can get to it this month.
    Hope you enjoy all your new books!
