#StackingTheShelves (1): January 5, 2019

Stacking The Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews and is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts, and of course ebooks!

Happy 2019!

Today is my first Stacking the Shelves post and I can't wait to start this weekly meme with you guys so you can learn more about books.

In case you missed it, I kicked off Science Fiction and Fantasy Fridays again! I am starting with a giveaway for a copy of THE FIFTH SEASON by N.K. Jemisin.

Thank you to @hccfrenzy for sending me a copy of THE QUEEN'S RISING by Rebecca Ross! If you checked out my story, you know I started reading and the Prologue is ah-mazing. This hits shelves in February 2018 so be sure to check back for a #review later! But for now check out the summary below... // When her seventeenth summer solstice arrives, Brienna desires only two things: to master her passion and to be chosen by a patron. Growing up in the southern Kingdom of Valenia at the renowned Magnalia House should have prepared her for such a life. While some are born with an innate talent for one of the five passions—art, music, dramatics, wit, and knowledge—Brienna struggled to find hers until she belatedly chose to study knowledge. However, despite all her preparations, Brienna’s greatest fear comes true—the solstice does not go according to plan and she is left without a patron. Months later, her life takes an unexpected turn when a disgraced lord offers her patronage. Suspicious of his intent, and with no other choices, she accepts. But there is much more to his story, and Brienna soon discovers that he has sought her out for his own vengeful gain. For there is a dangerous plot being planned to overthrow the king of Maevana—the archrival kingdom of Valenia—and restore the rightful queen, and her magic, to the northern throne. And others are involved—some closer to Brienna than she realizes. With war brewing between the two lands, Brienna must choose whose side she will remain loyal to—passion or blood. Because a queen is destined to rise and lead the battle to reclaim the crown. The ultimate decision Brienna must determine is: Who will be that queen?
