Stacking the Shelves

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews. With this amazing meme, you can check out which books I've gotten.

From Netgalley
The Neuroscientist Who Lost Her Mind by Barbara K. Lipska 
Neuroscientist Lipska was diagnosed early in 2015 with metastatic melanoma in her brain's frontal lobe. As the cancer progressed and was treated, the author experienced behavioral and cognitive symptoms connected to a range of mental disorders, including her professional specialty, schizophrenia. Lipska's family and associates were alarmed by the changes in her behavior, which she failed to acknowledge herself. Gradually, after a course of immunotherapy, Lipska returned to normal functioning, recalled her experience and, through her knowledge of neuroscience, identified the ways in which her brain changed during treatment. Lipska admits her condition was unusual; after recovery she was able to return to her research and resume her athletic training and compete in a triathalon. Most patients with similar brain cancers rarely survive to describe their ordeal. Lipska's memoir, coauthored with journalist McArdle, shows that strength and courage but also a encouraging support network are vital to recovery 

Once a King by Erin Summerill
A young king searches for a way to save his kingdom in this romantic fantasy from Erin Summerill, who was called “absolutely marvelous” by New York Times bestselling author Sarah J. Maas.

Aodren: A lonely, young king, searching for a way to dismantle his father’s dark legacy.
Lirra: A girl with the power to control the wind, torn between duty and following her dreams

For twenty years, Channelers—women with a magical ability—have been persecuted in Malam by those without magic. Now King Aodren wants to end the bloody divide and unite his kingdom. But decades of hatred can’t be overcome by issuing decrees, and rumors of a deadly Channeler-made substance are only fueling people’s fears. Lirra has every reason to distrust Aodren. Yet when he asks for help to discover the truth behind the rumors, she can’t say no. With Lirra by his side, Aodren sees a way forward for his people. But can he rewrite the mistakes of the past before his enemies destroy the world he’s working so hard to rebuild? Erin Summerill returns with a high-stakes fantasy full of romance, magic, and revenge perfect for fans of Susan Dennard and C. J. Redwine.

As you are reading this, I am headed to my second final exam. Assuming I make it out alive, I cannot wait to start reading these books. I read an excerpt of the Neuroscientist's book and I was already hooked from chapter one. I requested it from Netgalley, but part of me hoped that I would get denied because I kind of want to buy a physical copy of the book anyways... we'll see. As for Once a King, I HAD NO CLUE THE SERIES WAS CONTINUING. I am so excited to keep reading and see Aodren and Lira's story. 
Have a lovely weekend, and let me know which books you got this week.

  2. Oooo, Once a King! I saw that one on Edelweiss. I still haven't read Ever the Brave - the love triangle hinted at the end of book one really threw me off. I know this new book is a companion novel so i might actually read this one and skip Ever the Brave. :D Anyway, happy reading, Aneta!

    Have a wonderful day. =)
