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

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.

I'm still trying keep a tight reign on the review pile, knowing that we have a lot of work ahead of us with the move to another city, but I did request a pair of summer/autumn releases:

Soul of the World by David Mealing [June 27th]
A brilliant debut epic fantasy with a unique magic system and unforgettable characters . . . Three lines of magic must be mastered in order to usher in a new age, and three heroes must emerge

Blackwing by Ed McDonald [July 20th UK | October 3 NA]
A post-apocalyptic frontier, a long dead sorcerer's legacy, a wizard-crafted weapon so powerful even the Deep Kings feared it, and a wasteland full of ghosts and corrupted magic


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.

This week's paperback read is The Heart of Stone by Ben Galley, while my dueling e-book reads are The Tower of Zhaal by C.T. Phipps and Mythos Christos by Edwin Herbert.

What's topping your shelves this week?


  1. I'm still steaming with jealousy about your house move! I'm still dreaming of a lottery win and a self sufficient rural home with great scenery! Have a good reading week!

  2. These books look really great! I especially like the sound of Soul of the World. <3

  3. I haven't heard of any of these books. I hope that you love them though! :-)

  4. Is Galley the most popular Self pub author around? I see him mentioned ALL the time these days.

  5. Good luck with the move, and I hope you enjoy your new books!

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  6. I may have to hit the NetGalley request button on Soul of the World soon - the more I hear about it the harder it is to resist its call.

    Good luck with your upcoming move!

  7. Heart of Stone looks amazing. I hope you enjoy your books!

    Here's my It's Monday! What Are You Reading? post.

  8. I had good intentions of keeping the review obligations down but had a few I couldn't resist. Most are released this summer which should be after my move it completed. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  9. These look great! I'm always looking for new fantasy books so now I have a few new titles to research. Thank you for sharing!
