Stacking The Shelves is all about the books we are adding to our shelves each week, sharing with you our excitement for our newest titles and maybe have you discover a new book in the process! --Tynga
I have stayed quiet about the drama that overtook the book blogging community this past week, and plan to stay quiet. I don't like drama and am not here to stir the pot. But I am no longer going to be participating in In My Mailbox anymore due to said drama. And apparently I'm not alone. Tynga, at Tynga's Reviews, has started Stacking the Shelves as a way for those who no longer want to take part in IMM to share all of the pretty books that we receive. So I will also be participating in Stacking the Shelves. I also had this post all ready and posted when the mailman came by and added two to the pile. He had perfect timing. :)
Review: (Thanks to Netgalley!)
Velveteen by Daniel Marks [Pre-order]
The City's Son by Tom Pollock [Pre-order]
I didn't think the publisher was going to give me an e-ARC for Velveteen, since the request sat there for two weeks, so I'm very excited. The City's Son sounds like a more grown up YA novel. I didn't know it was YA until I saw who was publishing it.
Deadly Descendant by Jenna Black [Buy now]
Evil Dark by Justin Gustainis [Buy now]
Coveted by Shawntelle Madison [Buy now]
I'm really excited for Coveted. I love that the different packs are from New Jersey and Long Island. Normally, stories take place in NYC, not the surrounding area. And I know I'll love Deadly Descendant and Evil Dark because I enjoyed the first books in both series.
Free Reads: (These titles may not still be free.)
Elemental by Brigid Kemmerer
Tempted by Rebecca Zanetti
I was excited for Elemental to be free because I want a taste of the series before purchasing the first novel, Storm. I also grabbed Tempted while it was free since I have the first of the series waiting on my Kindle.
