The Authors Bookshelf – Claire Buss @Grasshopper2407

Welcome to The Bookshelf. Each week I feature an author or book blogger and talk about their bookshelf with them. It’s a light-hearted, book focused, Q&A.

This week I have Claire Buss who is a Science Fiction & Fantasy author. Do check out her novels, they look like great reads. I hope you enjoy her bookshelf.

What was the first book you remember having on your bookshelf?
A very beloved copy of Enid Blyton’s Hollow Tree House which I have read many, many times and still have.

What was the most recent book you added to the bookshelf?
Ooh this is exciting because it was my birthday recently and I got books – yay! I added Mrs Bradshaw’s Handbook by Terry Pratchett, Fool’s Quest by Robin Hobb, A Closed and Common Orbit by Becky Chambers, All The Birds In The Sky by Charlie Jane Anders and A Whole New World (A Twisted Tale #1) – Once Upon a Dream (A Twisted Tale #2) – As Old as Time (A Twisted Tale #3) by Liz Braswell.

Which book have you most recently read from your bookshelf?
I just read The Peculiar Life of a Lonely Postman by Denis Theriault which was very charming and full of lovely little haiku’s.

Which 5 books from last year would you not let go of from your bookshelf?
A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab, my entire Discworld collection by Terry Pratchett, The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet by Becky Chambers, The Red Rising trilogy by Pierce Brown and The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde.

Which books are you most looking forward to adding to your bookshelf?
I can’t wait to get my hands on Assassin’s Fate by Robin Hobb, the cover is gorgeous. Is it wrong that I’m also looking forward to seeing my new book, The Rose Thief, in paperback?

What was the most recent addition to your writers bookshelf?
I recently published a collection of short stories, plays and blog posts called Tales from Suburbia. I also just bought a fellow indie author’s book – When Foundations Crumble by Annmarie Wyncoll.

Which of your own books are you most proud of adding to the bookshelf?
I am extremely proud of having written and published The Gaia Effect, my debut novel.

Which book on your bookshelf do you most wish you had written?
Eye of the World by Robert Jordan – I have read this book at least fifteen times. I am in awe of fantasy world builders who write such amazing book series’s with so much backstory, geography, history and huge lists of characters.

Is there a WIP we can look forward to adding to our bookshelves?
Yes! The Rose Thief is due out this Autumn. It’s a humorous fantasy inspired by my love of Pratchett’s Discworld.

The Authors Bookshelf – Errin Krystal @ErrinKrystal

Welcome to The Bookshelf. Each week I feature an author or book blogger and talk about their bookshelf with them. It’s a light-hearted, book focused, Q&A.

This week I have the very lovely Errin Krystal. Errin is a fantasy writer, and if you missed my review of her awesome novel The Last Dragon Rider, you can catch it here.

This is an awesome bookshelf and my TBR which was toppling when I started putting this post together is now in a hopeless case! Enjoy!

What was the first book you remember having on your bookshelf?
I had so many books growing up. I actually still have a lot of them, the ones that survived that it. The first book I ever bought myself though was the Animorphs series when I was about 11 or 12. Back then my bookshelf consisted of a single shelf on my desk. But, yes, they were the first ones I remember having on my own shelves.

What was the most recent book you added to the bookshelf?
I have just been to OzComicCon this weekend (July 1-2) and came home with TEN new books! All from local Melbourne born/based Authors. Autographed copies of C.S Pacat’s Captive Prince Trilogy (one of my favourite series), The Vengeance Trilogy by Devin Madson, Time Weaver By Jacinta Maree, and The Territory Series By Justin Woolley.

Which book have you most recently read from your bookshelf?
Most recently I have finished reading A Court Of Wings And Ruin by Sarah J. Maas. Absolutely loved it. Felt like forever waiting for it to come out. Oh, and the latest Riverdale comic, 😉

Which 5 books from last year would you not let go of from your bookshelf?
A Court Of Mist And Fury, Lady Midnight, Kings Rising, Soul Finder and Tales From The Shadowhunter Academy.

Which books are you most looking forward to adding to your bookshelf?
Definitely The Queen of Air and Darkness By Cassandra Clare. It is book three in the Dark Artifices series. Unfortunately I have a long wait ahead of me. It’s not due out until 2019.

What was the most recent addition to your writers bookshelf?
The Tough Guide To Fantasyland By Diana Wynne Jones. While it is definitely not a new book, (published in 1996) I have just recently got a copy. It’s definitely a fun book.

Which of your own books are you most proud of adding to the bookshelf?
Well, I would have to say The Last Dragon Rider, as it is my first. So, very excited about that one!

Which book on your bookshelf do you most wish you had written?
Pretty much anything by Cassandra Clare. I just think her writing is so beautiful. I would love to be able to write like that.

Is there a WIP we can look forward to adding to our bookshelves?
Phoenix Rising! It will be book two in my fantasy series. I’m working on it at the moment.

The Authors Bookshelf – Teri Polen @TPolen6

Welcome to The Bookshelf. Each week I feature an author or book blogger and talk about their bookshelf with them. It’s a light-hearted, book focused, Q&A.

This week I have Teri Polen, I’ve been speaking with Teri via our blogs for a while now, and her horror novel, Sarah has received some fantastic reviews from bloggers I highly regard.

I hope you enjoy peeking into her bookshelf…

What was the first book you remember having on your bookshelf?
I know there were plenty before, but the one I still remember is Summer of Fear by Lois Duncan.  It was my first ‘age appropriate’ horror novel – I think I was 8-years-old at the time.

What was the most recent book you added to the bookshelf?
The Wangs vs. the World by Jade Chang – I heard it’s an entertaining read about a dysfunctional family, which is something everyone can identify with.

Which book have you most recently read from your bookshelf?
I’m constantly working on my TBR pile, and that doesn’t count the books I review from NetGalley, Edelweiss, and other writer friends.  I’m also in two book clubs, so when it’s my turn to choose a book, it’s something from my pile in the hopes of knocking it down a few notches.  Right now, I’m reading The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey and I just finished Project Cain by Geoffrey Girard.  Both have been in the TBR for quite a while.

Which 5 books from last year would you not let go of from your bookshelf?
That’s a hard one – I had to look at my Goodreads list from last year.  I’d have to say A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab, Scythe by Neal Shusterman, Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo, Dark Matter by Blake Crouch, and The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater.  You can tell I lean heavily toward sci-fi/fantasy/horror.

Which books are you most looking forward to adding to your bookshelf?
All the Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater, One Dark Throne by Kendare Blake, and A Desolate Hour by Mae Clair, the last in her Point Pleasant Series.

What was the most recent addition to your writers bookshelf?
At a writer’s retreat, a friend recommended The Emotion Thesaurus by Angela Ackerman and Becca Puglisi – I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve used that book.

Which of your own books are you most proud of adding to the bookshelf?
I only have Sarah so far, but that was a huge accomplishment for me.  Like most writers, I had a pile of rejections, but I just kept swimming (one of my favorite phrases from Finding Nemo) and hard work and persistence finally paid off.

Which book on your bookshelf do you most wish you had written?
I think a lot of people say the Harry Potter series (obviously), and I’ll just jump on the bandwagon and agree, but I’d also say V.E. Schwab’s Shades of Magic Series – the world-building is just phenomenal.

Is there a WIP we can look forward to adding to our bookshelves?
Yes!  I’m working on The Gemini Connection, a YA sci-fi/fantasy that will be released later this year or early 2018.  Looks like I’m a multi-genre author, but that’s no surprise considering my reading preferences.

Can you share a picture of your bookshelf / favourite bookshelf?
I took a few snaps of the various shelves and piles of books around my living room, for a blog post I wrote a little while ago ~ here are two of them.

The Authors Bookshelf – Terry Tyler @TerryTyler4

Welcome to The Bookshelf. Each week I feature an author or book blogger and talk about their bookshelf with them. It’s a light-hearted, book focused, Q&A.

This week I have Terry Tyler, I’m so pleased to have Terry, not only have I just finished her latest release Tipping Point, which is absolutely fantastic (I promise a review will be here soon), but she is also a fellow rock chick and has seen some legendary bands live and I’m rather in awe!

I also want to provide her for providing some of the images of the older books here, it’s so nice to see some of these books as Terry has always loved them.

I hope you enjoy peeking into her bookshelf…

What was the first book you remember having on your bookshelf?
We used to go to the library every Saturday when I was a child, and I read all the Enid Blyton favourites: The Magic Faraway Tree, Mallory Towers, etc.  There was also series by Andrew Lang known as the The Coloured Fairy Books, that my sister and I loved.  The first I remember owning, though, were the Chronicles of Narnia by C S Lewis.  Mum used to read them to me for my bedtime story.

What was the most recent book you added to the bookshelf?
I buy books all the time, almost all Kindle books.  The most recent (just had to consult my tablet to check!) was Search and Rescue by Frank Tayell – Book 11 (yes, that’s book eleven!) of his Surviving The Evacuation zombie apocalypse series.

Which book have you most recently read from your bookshelf?
Last book I read in my role as a reviewer for Rosie Amber’s book blog was The Berlin Affair by David Boyle (WW2 thriller novella).  Last one I read from my own choices was Twisted Memories, from Kate L Mary’s Broken World zombie apocalypse series (yes, I know, there’s a trend here…!)

Which 5 books from last year would you not let go of from your bookshelf?

1.       I read so much, and it’s SO hard to choose just five favourites, but I’ve done it, with a few crossings out and moments of re-thinking!

  •         Above All Others by Gemma Lawrence (Tudor histfic)
  •         The Silent Kookaburra by Liza Perrat (Aussie 1970s dark family drama)
  •         Abandon by Blake Crouch (Thriller set in 19th Century Colorado)
  •         Hellifax by Keith C Blackmore (Zombie apocalypse, set in Canada)
  •         Frogs and Frigate Birds by Jo Carroll (Travel memoir)

Which books are you most looking forward to adding to your bookshelf?
The continuation of Gemma Lawrence‘s two series about Anne Boleyn and Elizabeth I, when they come out.  I love her books, badly!

What was the most recent addition to your writers bookshelf?
Does this seems weird?  I don’t buy books about writing.  I read the odd blog post from/interview with those whose opinions I seriously rate, and that’s about all.  I do want to read Stephen King’s ‘On Writing‘, though.

Which of your own books are you most proud of adding to the bookshelf?
My most recent: Tipping Point, which I published on August 7th.  It’s Book 1 of my post apocalyptic series (not zombies!).  And the three most full-length novels before that: The Devil You Know, The House of York and Last Child.  I think they’re my best.  Some of my earlier books make me cringe in places (it’s a writer thing!), but I’m fairly proud of the most recent six.

Which book on your bookshelf do you most wish you had written?
Oh, that’s easy.  Cashelmara by Susan Howatch.  It’s a marvellous historical epic, set in New York, London and famine-stricken Ireland in the mid 19th century.  It’s about the fictional de Salis family, and is inspired by/based upon the lives of Edward I and Edward II of England, from early medieval times.  Wonderful, wonderful book.  I think I’d walk around with a permanent smug smile if I’d ever written anything half as good!

Is there a WIP we can look forward to adding to our bookshelves?
Yes!  Lindisfarne should be published some time in September.  It’s Book 2 of the Project Renova series, about a pandemic that kicks off in England in the year 2024.  It centres around Vicky, a thirty-four year old mother with a teenage daughter, and the lives of her and her friends before, during and after.  There is also a government conspiracy side plot, as the cause of the pandemic is revealed.  I’m currently working on a collection of outtake short stories from the series, called Patient Zero, which I plan to publish later in the year.

The Authors Bookshelf – C H Clepitt @BadgersTweetToo

Welcome to The Bookshelf. Each week I feature an author or book blogger and talk about their bookshelf with them. It’s a light-hearted, book focused, Q&A.

This week I have C H Clepitt and one thing I’ve learned doing this post with her is that she has a wonderful sense of humour so I really hope you enjoy this post because it’s been wonderful putting it together!

I hope you enjoy peeking into her bookshelf…

What was the first book you remember having on your bookshelf?
The first book I remember reading and really enjoying was 101 Dalmatians.  It taught me from an early age that the film is never as good as the book, too!

What was the most recent book you added to the bookshelf?
Jill by Rose Montague.  I have read Jade and Jane and really want to see how the trilogy pans out!

Which book have you most recently read from your bookshelf?
The Paying Guests by Sarah Waters.  It was so tense it almost drove me mad, I couldn’t put it down!

Which 5 books from last year would you not let go of from your bookshelf?
Eeek! You mean published last year? Now I have to go and look at publication dates! Hold on…. OK, so I would not release my signed copy of The Baron Moruna by Samuel Z Jones, the others I haven’t read yet, so won’t be letting them go until I have!  We have The Muse by Jessie Burton, The Essex Serpent by Sarah Perry and Username: Regenerated by Joe Sugg.  What? That’s only four you say? Well, clearly I would also never release I Wore Heels to the Apocalypse by C H Clepitt…

Which books are you most looking forward to adding to your bookshelf?
My Name is Not Alice by Angelika Rust, The Gaia Effect by Claire Buss and Jewel by Rose Montague

What was the most recent addition to your writers bookshelf?
Well, the most recent physical book I have released is I Wore Heels to the Apocalypse, which someone described as “Bridget Jones meets Zombies”, but on Kindle a Vampire short called “Lineage: A Beginning” has literally just sneaked out onto Amazon….

Which of your own books are you most proud of adding to the bookshelf?
I am proud of all of my books, but particularly The Book of Abisan, which has been described as a “feminist fantasy”, which I’m more that OK with.

Which book on your bookshelf do you most wish you had written?
The Night Watch by Sarah Waters.  It is possibly one of the most brilliant things I’ve ever read.  She has a knack for creating compelling storylines that you just cannot stop reading.  Also, NEVER watch the film of this, it ruined it for me, read the book, the book is better!

Is there a WIP we can look forward to adding to our bookshelves?
I am currently in the process of finishing the artwork for Everything is Better With a Cape, the second part to I Wore Heels to the Apocalypse.  It is a superhero spoof, so is part novel, part graphic novel. They say that a picture is worth a thousand words, so you can imagine how long the art is taking!

Can you share a picture of your bookshelf / favourite bookshelf?

I can, but not well, so I’ve attached it instead!

About C H Clepitt

C H Clepitt has a Master’s Degree in English Literature from the University of the West of England. As her Bachelor’s Degree was in Drama, and her Master’s Dissertation focused on little known 18th Century playwright Susannah Centlivre, Clepitt’s novels are extremely dialogue driven, and it has often been observed that they would translate well to the screen.

Since graduating in 2007, she gained experience in community and music journalism, before establishing satirical news website, Newsnibbles in 2010. In 2011 she published her book, A Reason to Stay, which follows the adventures of disillusioned retail manager, Stephen, as he is thrust into village life and the world of AmDram. Clepitt’s feminist fantasy, The Book of Abisan not only crosses worlds, but confuses genres, and has been described as a crime drama with magic. She has often said that she doesn’t like the way that choosing a genre forces you to put your book into a specific little box, and instead she prefers to distort the readers’ expectations and keep them guessing. Her 2016 work, I Wore Heels to the Apocalypse does just that, as just like the characters, the readers won’t know what’s going on in this laugh out loud satirical scifi.

Which of your own books are you most proud of adding to the bookshelf?
I finished writing a book, the last of a four book series in December. It’s called Penelope’s Passion. I loved how everything fell together just perfectly. I was crying as I wrote the last chapter. And by the way, My mom LOVED it.  LOL J Depending on publishing schedules, it should be out before the end of 2017.

Which book on your bookshelf do you most wish you had written?
There are a few that I’ve already mentioned loving, but I will have to say… What I did for the Duke.” By Julie Ann Long.

Is there a WIP we can look forward to adding to our bookshelves?
Hell Hath No Fury from Blue Tulip Publishing.  This book is so fun. The heroine needs to get rid of her husband.  (An Earl who tricked her so that he could get his hands on her money) so that she can be with her true love. I had tons of fun writing this one!

Can you share a picture of your bookshelf / favourite bookshelf?

Most of my books are boxed up right now, as my “library” is currently under construction. We purchased an old house last year (1910) and are in the process of opening up the attic. The room with the staircase is going to be pretty much lined with bookshelves!

The Authors Bookshelf – Shelley Wilson @ShelleyWilson72

Welcome to The Bookshelf. Each week I feature an author or book blogger and talk about their bookshelf with them. It’s a light-hearted, book focused, Q&A.

This week I have the lovely Shelley Wilson, Shelley’s books are on my list of must-reads and with a new book just released on Thursday her bookshelf is growing!

I hope you enjoy peeking into her bookshelf…

What was the first book you remember having on your bookshelf?
The Folk of the Faraway Tree by Enid Blyton (I’ve still got my original copy!). I loved that book so much, and it began my lifelong addiction to fantasy.

What was the most recent book you added to the bookshelf?
I had a client meeting over in Kenilworth, Warwickshire recently and whenever I visit this part of the world I have to pop in to the beautiful independent bookshop, Kenilworth Books in Talisman Square. I bought Kate Garraway’s book, The Joy of Big Knickers. It’s an unusual book for me to buy as I tend to go for YA fiction, however, with a title like that who could resist!

Which book have you most recently read from your bookshelf?
The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey as I loved The 5th Wave (I even enjoyed the film!). I’m also reading a copy of Revengers by David Valdes Greenwood, which is a YA horror for Rosie Amber’s Book Review Team.

Which 5 books from last year would you not let go of from your bookshelf?
Oh wow, that’s a tough one! Okay, I’d have to go with Paper and Fire by Rachel Caine, Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard, Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth, Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare, and King Slayer by Virginia Boeker.  (Not sure if they were all published last year, but they arrived on my bookshelf in the last twelve months, does that still count?) 😉

Which books are you most looking forward to adding to your bookshelf?
Ash and Quill by Rachel Caine, The Cruel Prince by Holly Black, and Chain of Thorns by Cassandra Clare (I can’t get enough of the Shadowhunters!).

What was the most recent addition to your writers bookshelf?
I bought Write Your Way out of Depression by Rayne Hall. I adore Rayne’s Writer’s Craft series and have all of them.

Which of your own books are you most proud of adding to the bookshelf?
That would be my new release, Oath Breaker, a YA werewolf story. I had this tale in my head for so long but couldn’t pin it down. I needed to tap into my younger self and remember the feelings and emotions I had when dealing with abuse. It’s a YA novel, so I didn’t add too many gruesome details, but it was important to me that I gave the protagonist, Mia the right mindset. I had to work on my discipline and self-care to write it, but I am so happy with the result.

Which book on your bookshelf do you most wish you had written?
City of Bones by Cassandra Clare! I adore that book and totally disconnected from the world as I read it. To be able to create worlds and characters like Cassandra Clare is the dream.

Is there a WIP we can look forward to adding to our bookshelves?
Ooh, now there’s a question! My editor wants me to write a follow-up to Oath Breaker, so I’m plotting this out at the moment (Oath Keeper is the working title). However, I’m also working on another stand-alone YA book which is turning out to be good fun to write!

About Shelley Wilson

Shelley Wilson divides her writing time between motivational non-fiction for adults and the fantasy worlds of her young adult fiction.

Her non-fiction books combine lifestyle, motivation and self-help with a healthy dose of humour, and her YA novels combine myth, legend and fairy tales with a side order of demonic chaos.

Shelley is an obsessive list maker, who loves pizza, vampires, and mythology, and may also have crazy cat lady tendencies.

She was born in Leeds, West Yorkshire but raised in Solihull, West Midlands, UK, where she lives with her three teenagers, one eleven-year-old fat goldfish and a black cat called Luna.

The Bookshelf

the-bookshelf-logoThanks so much for stopping by Shelley, it’s so interesting to see what you’ve been reading especially as they are all books a few years ago I would have dove on but since pulling away from YA Fantasy I’ve not picked so many of these up in recent years. I’m not wondering if I should give a few of these series a go, especially the Rachel Caine one, as she was one of my favourite authors at one point!
