Stacking The Shelves and Mailbox Monday are a pair of weekly memes that are about sharing the books that came your way over the past week, and which you've added to your shelves - whether they be physical or virtual, borrowed or bought, or for pleasure or review.
The Beauty by Aliya Whiteley is a title I was originally offered back in August, but which just landed in my inbox this week. Described as a book that shakes up the New Weird, in which the beautiful and the terrible exist side by side, it encompasses post-apocalyptic science fiction and horror.
The After House by Michael Phillip Cash is a new release that, if I can, I will do my best to work into this month's reading schedule. Michael has been kind enough to gift me with most of his new releases, and the idea of a haunted 300 year old cottage with a secret occupant lurking about definitely caught my eye (as you can expect).
It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is another weekly meme, this time focused on what books are spending the most time in your hands and in your head, as opposed to what's been added to your shelf:
• The Deep by Nick Cutter
The 'Gets is one of the most intriguing (and terrifying) plagues ever unleashed on humanity, and that's just treading the surface of this underwater ocean horror.
• Not Quite the Classics by Colin Mochrie
Whose Story is it Anyway? Sometimes you just need to laugh, and for that reason Canada's own funnyman recreates classic stories in 'Whose Line' fashion.
• Figures of Fear: An Anthology by Graham Masterton
Halfway through this stunning collection, my only question is how the hell have I not read more Masterton before? So far, 'Underbed' is my personal favorite.
What's topping your shelves this week?
