Stacking the Shelves #27

Some really exciting books this week! A Text Prize winner, a new Aaron Blabey, superheroes! So much to love! Buy any of these from Booktopia.


  • The Star-Touched Queen – Roshani Chokski

This book has been out overseas for a while and seems to have lots of acclaim. I’m borrowing the ARC from a colleague.

  • Frayed – Kara Terzis

A super-young Aussie author who made her start on Wattpad. Interested to see what her book is like!

  • The Book of Whispers – Kimberley Starr

This won the Text Prize last year, and it is all about demons and is set during the Crusades. I can’t wait to get stuck into it!


  • Bad Power – Deborah Biancotti
  • Red Spikes – Margo Lanagan

I bought these two books at the launch of Swarm, the sequel to Zeroes. Deb’s book is a collection of short stories about superheroes (GIVE ME ALLLLLL THE SUPERHEROES) and everyone keeps telling me Margo’s short stories are just impeccable so I had to have one of her collections too! (Also, read Swarm – it will tear your heart out, but sooooo gooooddd!)

  • Pig the Elf – Aaron Blabey

Aaron’s books are just all so amazing! This Christmas story about a naughty pug called Pig, told in rhyme, is just toooooo funny!
