Stacking the Shelves (8): The Haven't-Done-This-In-Awhile Edition

This weekly linkup is hosted by Tynga's Reviews. Visit her site to see what everyone else has gotten their hands on recently.

I have absolutely no idea why I am so horrible at doing Stacking the Shelves on a more regular basis. The last time I did one of these? January. Do you know how many books I have gotten since January?

With Comic Con a few weeks away, I thought it might be a good idea to get in the habit of sharing all the incoming books that have found their way onto the piles in my homes. Here are just some of the books I've received in the last month.

First of all my friends at Angry Robot were moving their US offices, so they sent me presents a box of goodies that made it feel like Christmas.

Morlock Night by KW Jeter

Crown of the Blood, Crown of the Conqueror, and Crown of the Usurper by Gav Thorpe

Camera Obscura by Lavie Tidhar

Three by Jay Posey (for review, interview & giveaway)

Seven Wonders by Adam Christopher

vN by Madeline Ashby (for review & interview)

Not pictured: iD by Madeline Ashby (e-ARC for review & interview)


Then I made the mistake of going on Amazon and finding that instead of doing 4 for 3 paperback sales now, they just randomly put books up for a steep discount. I may have gone... a bit wild.

Geektastic: Stories from the Nerd Herd edited by Holly Black & Cecil Castellucci

The Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund

Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake

The Fox Inheritance by Mary E. Pearson

All These Things I've Done by Gabrielle Zevin

Black Hole Sun by David Macinnis Gill

Grave Mercy by RL LaFevers


Then another book came out that I had to buy on release date and I need to put into something else for free shipping so, these arrived on my doorstep last week:

Die For Me by Amy Plum

The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman


And finally some editors have been absolutely lovely, sending me things for review, and I won a contest or two.

Masque of the Red Death and Dance of the Red Death by Bethany Griffin (Thank you to Jen at YA Romantics)

The Fury by Alexander Gordon Smith (Thank you to Macmillian)

The Testing by Joelle Charbonneau (Thank you Houghton Mifflin)

The Bitter Kingdom by Rae Carson (Thank you HarperTeen/Greenwillow)

I Never Promoised You a Goodie Bag by Jennifer Gilbert (Thank you to HarperCollins)

The Wife, The Maid and the Mistress by Ariel Lawhon (Thank you to Doubleday)

Parallel by Lauren Miller (Thank you again HarperTeen)


And finally the book that, upon arriving at my door on Wednesday night, caused me to squeal like a 14-year-old and seriously consider calling in sick to work the next day. Thank you to HarperTeen and Rockstar Book Tours for having me on the tour for this upcoming release that I am SO. EXCITED. ABOUT!

Now let's see if I can be a little more consistant with this Stacking the Shelves thing because books are quickly stacking up on my shelves. What book are you most excited about receiving recently?
