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.
Absolutely nothing new this week, which is purely by design (and a poor reflection of the numerous requests that have come in). It's been a tough few months around home, so I still have a huge TBR pile to work my way through, and I'm expecting a few high-profile ARCs and new release hardcovers in the mail next week that are MUST-READ-RIGHT-NOW kind of titles.
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:
• Willful Child by Steven Erikson
Taking a break from Malazan, Erikson offers up an entertaining spoof of the whole "mankind-exploring-space-for-the-good-of-all-species-but-trashing-stuff-with-a-lot-of-high-tech-gadgets-along-the-way" overblown adventure.
• Lives in Ruins by Marilyn Johnson
A real-life exploration of lives and civilizations found, quite literally, in the ruins of history.
• The Providence of Fire by Brian Staveley
After a month of horror, I really need to get back into some epic fantasy, so where better to start than with one of my most anticipated reads of 2015?
What's topping your shelves this week?
