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 FridaySteel and Promise by Alexa Black

Dark Faerie Prize Pack with E.J. Stevens

Most Anticipated Reads of 2017

Graphic Novel Review: Shame by Lovern Kindzierski & John Bolton

This will be my last weekly update for the year, as I'm taking a bit of a break during the holidays.

While I'm gone, I invite you to enjoy a little WTH Holiday mayhem as my dark half and his literary diversions break out of their Friday dungeon, filling the holidays with the bizarre, the twisted, the grotesque, and the kinky. Enjoy!


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.

It's an all WTH Holidays stacking of the shelves this week:

Circle Z by Brandon L. Summers

Serpent Girl by Ray Garton

Knight Force by AJ Vincent 

The Inquisitor's Gift by Sionnach Wintergreen

The Enforcer by J.E. & M. Keep

The Corruption of Ynara, Goddess of Purity by Philo Hunter 


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 an eye towards starting the new year with some (hopefully) killer reviews, these are the books keeping me company over the holidays:

I've been sitting on this for a few weeks, but it's finally time to revisit Osten Ard

Recluce Tales: Stories from the World of Recluce by L.E. Modesitt Jr.
So far this is fantastic . . . such a diverse world of stories

Little Heaven by Nick Cutter
I've had this since summer, but was asked to hold a review until closer to its Jan release

What's topping your shelves this week?


  1. Enjoy your books and your time away from the blog. Hope you have a happy, healthy and peaceful holiday season!

  2. Awesome haul this week! Here's hoping you have a quiet(ish), restful time away from the blog and bloggy world--enjoy your mini vacay, and happy holidays to you and yours!

    Thanks so much for sharing with us! Here's my Stacking the Shelves post, if you're interested in checking it out. No worries or pressure if you're not, though! Either way, I hope you enjoy your newest bookish acquisitions, and have a great rest of your weekend!

  3. You got a lot of books this week! I haven't heard of any of these before, but it looks like you have a fun week or two of reading ahead of you. Enjoy!
