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

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

WTF Friday: Motherf*cking Wizards by Leonard Delaney

Urban Fantasy Review: Secondhand Souls by Christopher Moore


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.

No new review titles this week, as I'm really trying to keep the stacks at a minimum while I delve deep into the shelves for some summer reading, but I did pick up a pair of Kindle titles and a few used paperbacks:




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.

With the long weekend having just passed, warmer weather here, and plenty of opportunities to hit the beach or go for a long hike, I've shelved the review titles for the moment and dug out some paperback pleasures . . .

Shock Wave by Clive Cussler
Nothing says summer quite like a Dirt Pitt adventure, and from the historical opening, to the massive death in the Antarctic, to Dirk's daring rescue of a wandering cruise ship, this is fantastic stuff already.

What's topping your shelves this week?


  1. RIVER OF GOLD has the most delightful cover

  2. OOh nice! Those are all new to me ones! Hope you enjoy them all!

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

    Have a GREAT day!

  3. Clive Cussler is like perfect summer/beach reading. And nice buys, I always envy those who live nearby used bookstores :) Really excited to see Kushiel's Scion in your stack.

  5. Looks like a nice little haul! I really need to get on with rereading the Kushiel books. <3

  6. I'm trying to do the same thing. Fewer review books mean I can dig deep into the TBR pile. Of course, I have enough TBR books that I would have enough reading for three years without purchasing or reviewing an additional book. One summer of reading won't reduce it much. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  7. I plan on looking to my books current 'ToRead' list and slow down on accepting new books for the summer. I hope you have a great summer!

  8. Nice place to read that book! Happy reading

  9. I love your beachy book pic :) Haven't read Dirk Pitt yet but heard great things about the series.
