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 . . .

Dragons, Superheroes, Apocalypses, and Hell: Catching up with the review pile . . .

Waiting on Wednesday: Haven by Tom Deady

Thriller Review: The Obsidian Chamber by Preston and Child

Short Story: Consumption by Jesse Orr


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.

A handful of interesting review titles this week:

The Secret Sex Life of Angels: Mysteries of Isis by I J Weinstock

Cyber World: Tales of Humanity’s Tomorrow edited by Jason Heller

Eye of the Storm by Frank Cavallo

The Ruling Mask by Neil McGarry & Daniel Ravipinto


No new WTF Friday titles this week, but one interesting Kindle freebie:

The Emperor's Treasure by Daniel Leston


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.

What's topping your shelves this week?


  1. What a beautiful cover for Cyber World-love the colour combinations! Hope it turns out as good as it looked!

  2. The Secret Sex Life of Angels... *eyebrow raised* Should be entertaining.

  3. Whoever thought up the name of The Secret Sex Life Of Angels was a genius! I don't know anything about it, but I now want to read that novel (although I would need to get it as an eBook so people couldn't see what I was actually reading!).

    1. I am laughing tears here, Ardis - you are hilarious! There is such a thing called book cover made of fabrik, that would solve your "problem" *smile*

      best wishes

  4. All of your new books are new to me. Some of them have covers that attract me so very much.

  7. I've seen a couple of bloggers with Cyber World, I'm very intrigued. It's quite the eye-catching cover!

  8. I'm not usually a reader of short stories or anthologies, but when I saw Cyber World, I couldn't resist either. Fantastic line up of authors.
