Stacking The Shelves with Gray, Grann, Lebbon, Weis and Hickman for Mailbox Monday

Stacking The Shelves is a weekly meme being hosted by Tynga over at Tynga's ReviewsStacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you've added to your shelves - physical and virtual, borrowed and bought. Mailbox Monday, meanwhile, is a similar meme being hosted by Kathy from BermudaOnion’s Weblog this month (check out the Mailbox Monday blog to see who's hosting next month).

I'm still muddling through with a borrowed e-reader to stay on top of those books that I have scheduled for various book tours until I can get my hands on one of the new Kobo Glo readers, so it was off to the used bookstore today for some paperback reads.

The Ancient by Muriel Gray
I remember being intrigued by this tale of monstrous horror on a supertanker at sea when it was released, but it seemed to disappear before I could snag a copy.

The Lost City of Z by David Grann
Not really sure what happened with this real-life adventure novel. It seems as if I waited forever for it to come out in paperback . . . and then missed it entirely.

The Nature of the Balance by Tim Lebbon
I'm familiar with his dark fantasy work, but have never dabbled in his horror, so this was a must-buy.

Journey into the Void by Margaret Weis & Tracy Hickman
Epic fantasy is just one of those genres I prefer to read in mass-market paperback, and now that I have the entire trilogy, I can get reading.

What's topping your shelves this week?


  1. Interesting choices. These are all new to me. Great haul of books.


  2. I'm with Grace, I hadn't heard of any of these either. I hope you enjoy them all, happy reading! ^.^ If you would like to check out my Stacking the Shelves you can do so here. :)

  3. Third time's the charm! These are all new to me as well, but they do sound pretty exciting!
