Just a friendly reminder for the authors, publishers, and publicists out there. I do NOT read YA/NA fiction. I have NO interest in YA/NA fiction. Please, take a few moments to read my review policy before filling out the form on that page. Seriously, you're already there, so do us both a favor and read it before wasting my time and yours. Oh, and don't rudely follow up with bulk/spam emails, because they'll just get you blocked. Really, your pitch is NOT going to change my mind. I do NOT read YA/NA fiction. Period. End of story.Stacking The Shelves and Mailbox Monday are a pair of weekly memes that are about sharing the books that came your way over the past week, and which you've added to your shelves - whether they be physical or virtual, borrowed or bought, or for pleasure or review.
A pair of new additions that landed on my doorstep this week, courtesy of Skyhorse Publishing.
Solomon's Arrow: A Novel by J. Dalton Jennings - It’s the mid-twenty-first century. The oceans are rising, the world’s population is growing, terrorist organizations are running rampant, and it has become readily apparent that humanity’s destructive nature is at the heart of the matter.
The Dangerous Type by Loren Rhoads - Set in the wake of a galaxy-wide war and the destruction of a human empire, The Dangerous Type follows the awakening of one of the galaxy's most dangerous assassins and her quest for vengeance.
Along with a signed book and some very cool swag from the gang at Ragnarok, courtesy of their last Birthday Bash and Block Party on Facebook.
It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is another weekly meme, this time focused on what books are spending the most time in your hands and in your head, as opposed to what's been added to your shelf.
• A Crown for Cold Silver by Alex Marshall
A very oriental kind of fantasy, with a pantheon of gods and floating airships, in which we journey across seven kingdoms with two young men who find their friendship tested by ideas of justice and power, leading them into to war.
• Positive by David Wellington
A 5 million-year-old subglacial lake located beneath two-and-a-half miles of ice in Antarctica, a team of scientists and covert operatives, a prehistoric monster, and evidence of extraterrestrial life with huge implications all adds up to epic adventure.
What's topping your shelves this week?
