From the Shelf to the Page: This Week in the Ruins

Another busy week in the Ruins this time around, with some very exciting posts:

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.

A quieter week on the review front this time around, but there were a few titles that hit my sweet spots and demanded I snatch them up for review:

Behind The Darkness: Alien Abduction by Robert E. Dunn
An alien abduction 20 years ago, a group of friends at an isolated ranch, and the return of not just the abductee but the monsters as well.

Sea of Darkness by Brian Hicks
A real-life tale of the civil war submarine H.L. Hunley, its discovery by Clive Cussler, its raising, its restoration, and its secrets revealed.


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.

• Doll Face by Tim Curran
Six friends, trapped in a town that does not exist, stalked by a supernatural force that demands they submit and become living dolls.

Cannonbridge by Jonathan Barnes
Something has gone wrong with history in this gripping novel about a lie planted among the greatest works of English fiction.

What's topping your shelves this week?


  1. I like the cover for Behind the Darkness. It's been a while since I read anything with aliens in it and this one is new to me. Enjoy your reads!

  2. OOoh those look like exciting reads! Totally new to me but I hope you enjoy them all!

    My STS will be up tomorrow, so be sure to stop by then!

    Have a GREAT day!

  3. You have four I have not seen. Thanks for visiting my blog.

  4. Huh, Cannonbridge sounds interesting, I'll have to look out for that. Hope you enjoy these! Also, jealous you had Trigger Warning.

  5. One of these days I'll have to check out Tim Curran, I always see my horror-reading friends on Goodreads rating his stuff quite high. Alien Abduction also looks quite creepy.
