A weekly post where I can brag about my new books? Yes please. Granted I definitely won’t have something to post every week, I’ll just do it as required. I will be including everything from my purchases, to NetGalley, gifts and books from authors. For more information head over to Tynga’s reviews.
I finished The Night Prince series. And if you have read any of my stacking the shelves updates you would know I was on a buying ban and couldn’t buy any new physical books until I had finished the series. I was so excited, I knew which book or five I wanted. There have been some amazing new releases out already this year, I wanted them all. I wanted all the pretty new books for my shelves. So you can imagine my utter despair when I discovered that I couldn’t get any of the books I wanted in paperback. I’m a tight ass, I don’t pay hardback price. DEVASTATED. First world problems I know. I decided to get a different book (great decision) and get the kindle version (I’ll get it in paperback later), and that led me to the other horror book I found.
The Gulp by Alan Baxter – I may have a slight obsession with Alan Baxter’s books. This one was an absolute winner and my review can be found HERE.
We Are Wolves: A Horror Anthology by some incredibly talented authors and edited by Gemma Amor, Laurel Hightower and Cynthia Paleyo – This is one that I wasn’t searching for, it found me and boy am I glad. Feminist dark fantasy and horror. From the forward to the very last page, I was completely enamoured.
Black Sun by Rebecca Roanhorse – I’ve had my eye on this since it was first released. I don’t know what the deal is at the moment, but I couldn’t get this in paperback either.
From blood and Ash by Jennifer L Armentrout – There is so much hype around this one. I’m hoping for dark and sexy fantasy.
That’s it from me this week. Have you read any of these? Do you have a favourite?

I really suck at not buying books. I want to say that in my defence I’ve read a substantial amount that were on my last Stacking the Shelves post, but even if I hadn’t I would have ended up with more books. Plus I love bargains. These are from the last month, so it’s not that bad.
The Witcher series by Andrzej Sapkowski – I watched the first four episodes of the show and thought it was epic. I have yet to finish the show, but I can read the books now. I already had The Last Wish, so over a couple of weeks I grabbed most of the others.
The Unspoken Name by A.K. Larkwood – Sometimes my local Big W stocks fantasy that I can’t wait for and it would be a crime to go leave them there. I’m 100 or so pages in and the writing is beautiful.
The Wolf of Oren-Yaro by K.S Villoso – The hype got to me with this one. Plus you can’t go past a series titled Chronicles of the Bitch Queen.
The First of Shadows by Deck Matthews – I saw Jason’s review and decided I needed to give it a whirl. It was a quick, enjoyable read. Hopefully I’ll get a review up sometime soon.
The Iron Crown by M.A. Grant – I really enjoyed book one (REVIEW) and I’m halfway through book two at the moment. I didn’t think my request would be accepted but lucky for me it was.
What did you pick up this month? Have you read any of these?
