Book Haul #82

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly event hosted on Tynga's Reviews where we can share what new books we've picked up this past week be they bought, borrowed or downloaded. There are also lots of other 'book haul' memes out there for you to choose from!

I've been away from home all week but still managed to end up with all these! It's been a really good week, went to a great event on Thursday night (photos in my end of the month post!) and got one of my most anticipated books of 2014 to review but late yesterday afternoon I heard the sad news about Strange Chemistry and Exhibit A. Anyone who reads this blog on at least a semi-regular basis knows of my affection for all things Strange Chemistry, they've introduced me to some outstanding authors and published some amazing books so I'm saddened by the news that Angry Robot have stopped publication immediately of all their forthcoming SC books. I can only hope that the authors who have worked so hard are able to find new homes for their books, I know I'll be checking frequently! There's so much more I could say about the situation, including my initial reaction from yesterday but I'm not going to say anything else except thank you to all the great people who worked for or wrote for Strange Chemistry and I wish you all the best.

I have the first two books but have yet to get to them, something I really need to hurry up and do. I hope you have a great reading week and enjoy all of your new additions :) Here's my STS.

  9. Ahh! Ruin & Rising! It seems like everyone has gotten a copy this week! :) I'm super excited for The Cure to Dreaming! It looks like a great book. I didn't request it off NG though because I'm already overwhelmed with review books these days.
    Enjoy your lovely reads this week! :)
