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.

For Review:

The Hatching by Ezekiel Boone
Expected publication: July 5th 2016 by Random House Canada
An astonishingly inventive and terrifying debut horror novel about the emergence of an ancient race of carnivorous spiders, dormant for ten thousand years but now very much awake. There's a reason we're afraid of spiders...

Disappearance at Devil's Rock by Paul Tremblay
Expected publication: June 21st 2016 by William Morrow
A family is shaken to its core after the mysterious disappearance of a teenage boy in this eerie tale, a blend of literary fiction, psychological suspense, and supernatural horror from the author of A Head Full of Ghosts.


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.

Dragon Hunters by Marc Turner
The sequel to When the Heavens Fall features gritty characters, deadly magic, and meddlesome gods. Once a year on Dragon Day the fabled Dragon Gate is raised to let a sea dragon pass into the Sabian Sea. There, it will be hunted by the Storm Lords, a fellowship of powerful water-mages who rule an empire called the Storm Isles. 

The Moon in Your Eyes by Adrian W. Lilly
A group of strangers enters the woods on a week-long camping trip to escape technology. But, the trek meant to test their endurance has them fighting for their lives when they cross paths with a blood-thirsty werewolf.

Night Things: Dracula versus Frankenstein by Terry M. West 
This novel spans several centuries, following the relationship of the two most iconic monsters in literary history. Once as close as brothers but now sworn enemies, Bram Stoker's Dracula and Mary Shelley's Frankenstein meet for a final showdown beneath the streets of New York City. 

What's topping your shelves this week?


  1. Interesting mix of books on your page this week. Have a good reading week ahead!

  2. OOoh nice! Those are some new to me reads! Hope you enjoy each and every one of them!

    My STS will be up tomorrow, so stop by then if you can!

  3. Looks like you have a couple of cool new horror titles! I'm dying the read The Hatching, and I just added Disappearance at Devil's Rock to my list. I haven't read A Head Full of Ghosts but I hear it's REALLY good.

    1. Same here - heard good things about A Head Full of Ghosts, and the blurb here was too good to pass up.

  4. I snagged The Hatching from Edel as well, because I'm really feeling the description. 2016 is shaping up to be the year of great horror and dark fantasy.

    1. That whole "There's a reason we're afraid of spiders..." tagline really grabbed me.

  5. Oh my, these reads look so much fun. And creepy! Disappearance from Devil's Rock and The Hatching both sound very scary. I hope you enjoy them!
