Best New Books On My Shelf

Book Roundup, New Releases

Stacking the Shelves with the best new books | batchofbooks.com

Welcome to Stacking the Shelves! I haven’t posted the best new books I’ve received in a while, and I’ve gotten a LOT of books recently. Instead of highlighting every last one of them, I am just going to show off the best ones that I’ve received from publishers, NetGalley, Edelweiss, and the library.

 

Picture Books:

Gator Dad | batchofbooks.com #kidlitI received Gator Dad a few weeks ago and have read it several times with my kids. It’s a really sweet story about the special connection between a Dad and his kids. I’ll be sharing my review of it soon.

 

Middle Grade Books:

Free Verse and The Secret of Dreadwillow Carse were both surprises that showed up in my mailbox (it happens from time to time). I haven’t read either one of them yet, but they both sound like promising, immersive stories.

I borrowed Summerlost from the library and I’m right in the middle of it. I’m loving it so far.

 

Teen Books:

I requested all of these books, so there was no surprise when they showed up in my mailbox. A lot of feedback from my survey asked for more books for teens, so here we are.

I am deliriously happy to be in possession of The Nethergrim and an ARC of The Skeleth. I read a sample of The Nethergrim on Amazon before I requested it, just to make sure I was going to like it. I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it since.

I’ve read mixed reviews about That’s Not Hay in My Hair, but sometimes those are the books I like best, so I’m looking forward to reading that one as well.

 

Young Adult Books:

These books are also for teens, but I’ve grouped them separately from the “teen” books because they are for the older teen audience – 16+. They are more likely to have language, sex, or other objectionable content in them.

I received A Fierce and Subtle Poison as an unsolicited surprise in the mail. I got the chance to read it the other day, so I did. It was a very interesting book and I’ll be posting my review of it soon.

I borrowed Their Fractured Light from the library. It’s the last book in the Starbound series, and I can’t wait to get into it.

Genius the Game will be published in June, and it looks VERY interesting.

Grown Up Books:

Yes, I read books for adults, too. Every once in a while I pull myself away from the awesome world of children’s literature and read something in my age bracket.

I signed up for Book of the Month Club and chose The Nest as my book for April. It’s picking up steam in the world of bookworms and I can’t wait to read it.

He Wanted The Moon is a book that I’ve wanted to read for months. It’s a nonfiction book about a doctor that documents his own descent into madness. I need to get it read before the movie comes out!
