Summary:
Girls started vanishing in the fall, and now winter’s come to lay a white sheet over the horror. Door County, it seems, is swallowing the young, right into its very dirt. From beneath the house on Water Street, I’ve watched the danger swell.

The residents know me as the noises in the house at night, the creaking on the stairs. I’m the reflection behind them in the glass, the feeling of fear in the cellar. I’m tied—it seems—to this house, this street, this town.

Stacking the Shelves

I hope everyone is having a great summer so far! We are-just enjoying the insane heat of Texas and really trying to avoid it as much as possible. I don’t know about you but I’m swimming (haha) in summer releases. So far there’ve been some incredible ones.

One bit of sadness this week was the news that Angry Robot is shutting down their YA imprint, Strange Chemistry. I took this time to look at their catalog and pick out my wish-list and purchase some books. I’m not clear on what this news means for these authors or their books but I want to make sure I have some for my collection. I’ve also got an international giveaway going right now-winner chooses any SC book they want. You can check it out here.

Now to this week’s books. Stacking the Shelves hosted by Tynga’s Reviews is a weekly meme where you show what books you’ve purchased, gotten from the library, received from giveaway, as gifts or for review.

Mortal Heart by Robin LaFevers, The Vanishing Season by Jodi Lynne Anderson and World of Trouble by Ben H. Winters

I have read The Vanishing Season and again (after Tiger Lily) was impressed with Anderson’s writing style and how incredibly vivid and beautiful it is. I’ll go into detail about this and the things I wasn’t as keen on in my review. World of Trouble is the third in Winter’s series. I reviewed the firs- The Last Policeman last week. And…MORTAL HEART. I nearly passed out opening that package. I can not believe that the physical arc is in my house. I’ve been hugging it and am so grateful.

Stacking the Shelves

Now for the new additions from this last week. Stacking the Shelves hosted by Tynga’s Reviews is a weekly meme where you show what books you’ve purchased, gotten from the library, received from giveaway, as gifts or for review.

I’m feeling incredibly lazy so I’m just going to put a picture down and hope to fill in the links for the books later on (if at all). I’m on the blog tour for Haze by Paula Weston. I adored Shadows so I’m incredibly excited to start this sequel. Your Perfect Life is an adult fiction book that was unsolicited. I’ll give it a bit of a read and see if it strikes my interest.
