Stacking the Shelves – December

Oh my goodness! Oh my goodness! I can’t believe it in just a few hours, if you’re on the East Coast in the U.S., we’re giving 2017 the boot and ushering in 2018 with open arms.

I haven’t done a one of these for quite sometime. I’m going to include Stacking the Shelves to the new monthly feature, Monthly Roundup.

So, what am I stacking the shelves with, eh?

1. Iron Gold by Pierce Brown – This is the latest installment of the Red Rising Saga. I went to work and it was sitting there all by its lonesome, so I thought I’d give it a good home; even though I’m not supposed to be adding any more ARCs to my collection. At least not until I get caught up.

Release Date: January 16, 2018
Publisher: Random House
Format: Hardcover, 480 pages

2. Simon vs. the Homo sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli – I’ve had my eye on this book for a while. It caught my attention because of Barnes & Noble Read Out. I put this on my The Broke and The Bookish Secret Santa wish list and was thrilled to get it.

3. Dark Matter by Blake Crouch – I already read Dark Matter, but I borrowed it from the library. I ordered this for someone else and because I liked the U.K. cover better than the U.S. decided to order one for myself. Ain’t I a stinker.

4. A Christmas Carol & Other Christmas Stories – Believe it or not I have never read A Christmas Carol. I didn’t even read it when I took a Dickens seminar class in college and not because I didn’t want to read it – it wasn’t assigned. What the what? Anyway, I picked this up at work yesterday after spotting it on the 50% off table and discovering it was the last one.

5. When They Call You a Terrorist by Patrisse Khan-Cullors & Asha Bandele – I don’t read very much non-fiction/biography/autobiography and at some point that needs to change. I said I wouldn’t pick up anymore ARCs at work, but oh well. What the hell heck!

Release Date: January 16, 2018
Publisher: St. Martin’s Press
Format: Hardcover, 272 pages

6. Love, Hate & Other Filters by Samira Ahmed – Again procured from the ARC table at work. It seems like I’m reading more and more Teen/Young Adult books. This is Ahmed debut novel and it’s about seventeen-year old Maya Aziz being torn between two worlds. The world of her parents and an arranged marriage and the world of her dreams – pursing film school and the boy of her dreams. I can already feel the family tension and drama.

Release Date: January 16, 2018
Publisher: Soho Teen
Format: Hardcover, 288 pages

So, there you have it. And please feel free to share what you’re stacking your shelves with.
