The Bookshelf Roundup is a feature I do every weekend that fills the role of several blog memes like Stacking shelves where I talk about new books I’ve added to my library or received for review and also It is Monday! What are you reading? where I will summarize what I have read in the last week and what I plan to do in the near future. Mostly also serves as a recap postso sometimes I’ll throw in things like reading challenge progress reports, book lists, and other random book thoughts or announcements.
Received for review
Thanks to the publishers and authors for receiving the following review copies, and be sure to click on the links to their Goodreads pages for more details and full descriptions!
Some exciting news this week! With thanks to Minotaur Books for the finished copy The Devil You Know by PJ Tracythe third book Detective Margaret Nolan a series I’ve heard a lot of great things about. Also, thanks to Simon & Schuster/Aladdin Books for the review copy City Spies: City of the Dead by James Ponti, the fourth book in the series. The previous book read as a stand alone (and I suppose my daughter and I really enjoyed this one too) so I’m looking forward to checking it out. And thanks to Grand Central Publishing for the review copy Cabinet Dr. Lenga by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child. Is part Aloysius Pendergast series and I can’t wait to read another book by these authors again!
In a digital sweep, with thanks to Simon & Schuster Audio for listening copies Mysteries of Thorn Manor by Margaret Rogerson and VAMPS: Fresh Blood by Nicole Arend. I was also excited to receive the ALC Finlay Donovan Jumps the Gun by Ella Cosimano, with thanks to Macmillan Audio. And finally my copy Tress of the Emerald Sea by Brandon Sanderson arrived in my inbox earlier this week. I backed the Kickstarter and now the backer benefits are starting to roll in! I can’t wait to get started!
