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

In case you missed any of it, here's what happened in the Ruins this week . . .

Thriller Review of Trust No One by Paul Cleave

Horror Review of The Weight of Chains by Lesley Conner

Horror Review of The Wells Of Hell by Graham Masterton

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.


Annabel Horton, Lost Witch of Salem by Vera Jane Cook
The Halloween Orgy Massacre by Jeff O'Brien
The Undead Chronicles by Steve Warren

Grabbed some Halloween themed Kindle freebies this week, which are sure to show up in a future WTF Friday review.


For Review:

Chains of the Heretic by Jeff Salyards
While I already nabbed an e-ARC of this earlier in the month, the mammoth paperback ARC landed on my doorstep earlier this week . . . and it looks awesome.

The Relic Master by Christopher Buckley
A compelling and hilarious adventure featuring a sixteenth-century relic hunter and his best friend, Albrecht Dürer, who conspire to forge the Shroud of Turin.

Weighing Shadows by Lisa Goldstein
Who are Transformations Incorporated, and what will they use this technology to gain? What ill effects might going back in time have on the present day? Is it really as harmless as TI says?


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.

On the physical front, I'm wrapping up The Lightning Stones by Jack Du Brul and I'm halfway through The King's Justice by Stephen R. Donaldson. On the digital front, my current read with an eye towards a release date review is This Gulf of Time and Stars by Julie E. Czerneda.

What's topping your shelves this week?



  2. The Halloween Orgy Massacre sounds like something you'd expect to see on the Horror Channel! Have fun with your Halloween reads!

  3. Ooh nice! Those are all new to me but look like exciting reads! Happy Reading!

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

    Have a GREAT day!

  4. I'm jealous that you got a review copy of This Gulf of Time and Stars. My niece placed a pre-order for the Kindle edition and I'll get to read it since we're on the same account.

    And, I like the looks of The Relic Master. I think that's going to have to go onto the wish list. Christmas is coming, you know!

    Almost all of my new books this week came from the library.

  5. Chains of the Heretic is GIGANTIC! I can't wait to sink my teeth into it.
