Stacking the Shelves
Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews to showcase all the goodies we got in the mail this week, be that books for review, ebooks, or print copies.
Since I'm still on my book buying ban, this week was quiet.
A Perfect Blood, by Kim Harrison
The Queens and the Hive, by Edith Sitwell
The UK paperback of A Perfect Blood is one I already preordered months ago and I can't wait to read it! I'm a huge fan of The Hollows, the series pretty much introduced me to Urban Fantasy :)
The Queens and the Hive is one I need for a seminar on Queens, Glamour, Power, and Femininity. We look at different representations and (re)figurings of Queens in literature, painting, and film. The books is not readily available anymore, so mine is a secondhand copy from amazon printed in 1971. It's all yellowed with age and has this wonderful old book smell ^^
Next up on my NetGalley pile are these two:
I'm excited to read them and hope I can get a review up before the release dates.
But enough about my pile, what did you have in yours?
