Today I’m taking part in a meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews. Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks! If you’d like to take part please visit the launch page and sign up with the linky on Tynga’s latest post.

Review Copies

I’ve been sent ebooks of White Lady by Jessica Bell and The Circuit: Executioner Rising by Rhett C Bruno, which I plan to read and review soon.


It was my birthday at the end of July and I was away in Tenerife. When I came back I was greeted with some lovely presents, including:

1) Shades of Earth by Beth Revis (from Grandad)
I’m really interested to see how the Across the Universe series ends.

2) Charmed Vengeance by Suzanne Lazea
Just before I went away, I was surprised by a mystery package in the post, which turned out to be a signed copy of  Charmed Vengeance that I’d won in a competition. I finished reading it a few days ago and I think it was even better than the first in The Aether Chronicles series. I’m now very excited to get my hands on the next book! I’ll be posting a full review soon.

3) Gone by Lisa McMann (from Matt)
My husband left this under my pillow as a surprise!

4) The Guide to Writing Fantasy and Science Fiction by Phlip Athans (from Robyn)
This looks like such a handy guide, covering everything from world-building to plotting and publishing. I can’t wait to see what I can learn from it.

5) The Writer’s Complete Fantasy Reference by Terry Brooks (from Robyn)
This is such a good idea. There’s information about all sorts of different fantasy cultures, magic systems, mythical creatures and races, buildings and costumes. Everything you need to make your fantasy world detailed and realistic. I’m sure this will be really useful.

6) Incarnate by Jodi Meadows (from Grandad)
I started reading this one a few days ago and so far I love it! Last night I stayed up late because I couldn’t put it down. Review coming soon!

7) Fever by Lauren De Stefano (from Mum)
I read Wither a little while ago now and am interested to see what happens next for Rhine.

Have you read any of these books yet? What books have you added to your shelves recently?
