Stacking the Shelves

Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books we are adding to our shelves, whether they be physical or digital. This includes physical books bought, digital books downloaded, and those titles received for review.

Review Titles

Another solid week for review titles, including a follow-up to one of my favorite reads of last year.

First up is 
Oh, That Shotgun Sky by Sarah Chorn, a bridge novella between Of Honey and Wildfires and the upcoming Glass Rhapsody

Days after the Boundary falls, six strangers converge in a one-horse town, all of them on the run. Some from the past, some avoiding the future.

When men from Shine Company arrive to reclaim their own, these desperate travelers have to decide if they stand with the law, or against it.

Men pull the trigger and blood spills. 
Fate pulls the strings and everybody dances.

Next up is I Wish You Were, a review request from Mariah Kingsley that I couldn't resist 

Sierra Brooks is on the lookout for love, she has been a serial dater for the last few years. Every man she has met has not been the man for her. After hearing for years how great Ty Howard is she finally goes to meet him, but the him is actually a her.

Ty Howard is successful in all areas of life, except for love. She has had lovers both male and female and she can’t seem to find the one person that she can share her life with.

One touch of hands sends electricity through their bodies and has Sierra running away. Ty lets her go but regrets it. Sierra goes on the prowl for that same spark from a man and ends up in danger and Ty is the only one that can save her.

With an enemy lurking in the shadows Ty opens up to Sierra and Sierra has only one wish, that would make Ty perfect.

Finally, we have an ARC of 
Midknight: A Doom of Liches by Eden Redd

Taking place on Ikkudran, the same world as Card Mage, we follow Jaryd Crane as he is bequeathed the mantle of Midknight. 

A Midknight is a guardian for a dungeon and a group of liches, called a Doom.

Jaryd must craft pieces of his Midknight armor, deal with lich politics and protect his friends from an evil greater than the undead.

New Acquisitions: Paperback Treasures

Just the one new arrival this week - Silk & Steel, the queer speculative adventure anthology edited by Janine A. Southard - but as an early Kickstarter backer I've been waiting for this for over a year!

There are many ways to be a heroine.

Princess and swordswoman, lawyer and motorcyclist, scholar and barbarian: there are many ways to be a heroine. In this anthology, seventeen authors find new ways to pair one weapon-wielding woman and one whose strengths lie in softer skills.

“Which is more powerful, the warrior or the gentlewoman?” these stories ask. And the answer is inevitably, “Both, working together!”

Herein, you’ll find duels and smugglers, dance battles and danger noodles, and even a new Swordspoint story!

From big names and bold new voices, these stories are fun, clever, and always positive about the power of love.

New Acquisitions: Digital Titles

A trio of digital downloads this week...

The Witch's Guilty Pleasure is a newsletter exclusive from Regina Watts, so don't go looking for it online, but do join HERE if you'd like a copy. Sexy Sabine is back for her third appearance to bake a batch of tasty cookies and discourse on the touchy subject of shame in the midst of cancel culture.

Wedded Bliss by Darrex Rogers collects all four stories of Onyx Chalcedon and his beautiful boy wife Shane. I loved Debutante's Ball - it was seriously one of the most beautiful stories I've ever read - so I'm excited to explore their tale in it's entirety, from their first adventure at the world famous Triskele Club to discovering how to live together as husband and wife, and how much their love surmounted all the obstacles in their life.

Rekindling doesn't have much of a blurb to it, just some teasing details about first childhood crushes and whether you would still feel the same way years later when they have become who they secretly wanted to be, deep down inside, but I'm enough of a fan of Darrex Rogers' writing to give it a read.


  1. The cover for I Wish You Were is gorgeous! Have a great weekend :)


  2. Love the cover of the first two, and the last one sounds good too! Hope you enjoy these!
