Stacking The Shelves (2)

This week I didn’t add a lot of books to my shelves because I’m still finishing up my current TBR pile of books.  Check out the books that I borrowed, purchased and received as ARCs below.

Borrowed

I’ve been a fan of Disney and their fairytales since I was a toddler.  The Kingdom Keepers series has been on my TBR list for a while, but I never got around to picking any of the books.  Then I was at the library on the hunt for some more Sarah J. Maas and books and saw this one.   It was sign.  So I picked it up and I can’t read it.

So Sarah J Maas books are super popular at our local library branches.  While I wait on my copy of A Court of Mist and Fury to arrive, I wanted to start the Throne of Glass series.  As luck would have it all of the Throne of Glass main books were checked out, but I was able to locate a copy of The Assassin’s Blade which will give me a little background on the action in the main books.

Just from reading and watching reviews of the Throne of Glass series, Celena sounds like a fierce and kickass heroine.  I’m digging into this book over the 4th of July holiday!

I’m starting A Sinful Calling next week since I got it as an ARC and need to get my review up ASP, but wanted to catch up on one of the books from the Rev Curtis Black series that I missed.  I’ll probably knock this out in a day and then move straight into A Sinful Calling.

Why is it so hard to find good thrillers/crime mysteries written by Black authors?  Ever since I decided to branch outside of reading James Patterson, I’ve been on the hunt for more mystery writers of colors.  I’m sure they’re out there and I was thrilled when I stumbled across this read at my library.  I read the first two chapters and was hooked!  Come thru Pamela Thomas-Graham.  She’s only written three books and I can’t wait to pick up her two works.

ARCs

I’ve never read anything by Nicole Blades but when I read the blurb about this book on Netgalley I had to have it.  There’s mystery, scandal and the unraveling of secrets.  I really hope this book is as good as the blurb makes it seem.

This is the second vampire book I’ve gotten this month.  I won a copy of this from LibraryThing.

This cozy mystery was described as having a Sophia Kinsella meets Janet Evanovich feel.  I just recently started getting more into cozy mysteries and hope that this one doesn’t disappoint.  Sophia Kinsella and Janet Evanovich are pretty big names to compare yourself to in the writing world!

Purchased

Someone in one of my Facebook book groups recommended this book and because I trust their recommendations I decided to take a chance and purchase this book.  I’m all about YA Fantasy right now.  Thank you Sarah Maas.  While I’m not expecting this book to be like ACOTAR, I do hope the writing and storyline will suck me in.
