Stacking the Shelves [295]

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 want to find out more about Stacking The Shelves, please visit the official launch page!
This week I have something old and something new. But maybe they will all be new to you!

Let's find out.

Games of Command by Linnea Sinclair
I'm writing an article for Library Journal about science fiction romance, and it's impossible to talk about SFR without referencing Linnea Sinclair. For so many SFR lovers, she's the first author we found who really did both parts well, terrific science fiction setting with equally marvelous romance. The entire list is in my full stack over at Reading Reality. I just couldn't resist picking up all her books as ebook, even though I already own them in print. I'm thinking of a reread.

Then There Was You by Miranda Liasson
The publisher brought this to my attention, saying that if I liked Robyn Carr's The Summer that Made Us, I'd like this one too. We'll see.

Hexed by Kevin Hearne (audiobook
I listed to Hounded, the first book in the Iron Druid Chronicles, and absolutely loved it. Luke Daniels is such a terrific reader for this series. Now when I think of Atticus, I hear his voice. This series makes the minutes and miles on the treadmill absolutely fly by.

Marlene is the perpetrator of the book blog Reading Reality, as well as a librarian and freelance writer currently living in Atlanta (after stops in Chicago, Seattle, Florida and Anchorage, not necessarily in that order. Her house full of books also contains her husband, also in the library biz, and two cats who really run the place.

  1. That's three very different books! I love the cover of Hexed. :D

  2. Oh, I like the look of Then There Was You. Thanks for sharing! Enjoy your week.

  3. It's the first time I hear of Linnea Sinclair. Didn't really read any science-fiction romance, but now I am curious!

  4. These look like wonderful books, Marlene! I heard about the audio books for the Iron Druid series from a person I was sitting next to at a book signing a few months back. It looks like my library only has a few of the books, and not as audio books. I have been reluctant to get an Audible subscription. But since this might be the only way to get the books, this may tip the scales.

  5. I'm planning to pick up Finders Keepers by Linnea Sinclair first (never read any of her novels before, but I am very tempted by the sci-fi+romance combo). Have a nice weekend!! :)

  6. Most New To Me. I have seen Iron Druid Chronicles around with great reviews and I just love the covers. So well put together.

    Happy Reading

  7. Then There was You looks good. Hope you enjoy it and have a great week!

  8. I hope you enjoy your new books. Have a great week!

  9. I tried reading Hounded but couldn't seem to get into it. I will have to see if my library has the audiobook version in.

  10. I want to start The Iron Druid Chronicles myself! I hope you enjoy it!

  11. OOh nice! I have to get caught up with the Iron Druid books! I am so behind! I read the first four years ago when they first came out and then I fell dramatically behind as soon as the books went hardcover! Yet I still bought them as they released! LOL! :D

    Happy Reading!

    Here's my STS

    Have a GREAT day!

  12. I am also a huge audiobook fan and a good narrator makes all the difference. One of the only things that bothers me is when they change a narrator midway through a series and I can't adjust to the voice. Enjoy your books!

  13. Thanks for sharing the great looking books.

  14. I read a lot of audios and a good narrator can make a book come alive. I've seen the cover for Hexed but I've never read the books but maybe I need to check out the audios. Have a great week.
