Stacking The Shelves [195]

Stacking the Shelves

Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!

If you want to find out more about Stacking The Shelves, please visit the official launch page!


January is always a busy month it seems.  Everything from catching up on things left for after the holidays to getting a fresh start on new projects and of course, more books to read!!

STS 30 Jan 16

  • Bad Country is a very interesting take on the detective novel.  There's a bit of an ethnicity twist to this one.

  • I got Thomas Jefferson and the Tripoli Pirates because my son had to do a book report on it and I wanted to be familiar with the book so I could help him with his report.  I'm glad I did.  It gives an insight to U.S. Marine history that I only got the bare essentials of in boot camp.

  • Syndrome E is a techno-thriller unlike most.  It starts the reader in one direction and winds up where you don't expect

  • Of course, if there is a new Brandon Sanderson book out there, I will likely be purchasing it.  I will have more to say on The Bands of Mourning, the latest in the Mistborn Series, very soon!

So, let us know, what literary additions have you made to your Todo List for this year?

  4. Enjoy your books, and may February be a better month!

  5. Got me curious about Bad Country. January went by too fast and was too busy. I didn't get to catch up with reading as much as wanted. Hey, we have an extra day in February ;-)

  6. Wow! Syndrome E looks like a great techno-thriller. I look forward to your review on it. :)

  12. I hope you enjoyed all of the books you got!!!

  13. Amen to January moving fast. I've been attributing the quick movement of time to my advanced age. Since I started the second half of my first century on earth, I've noticed time has picked up the pace ;)
    I really liked Bad Country since it kept me guessing for most of the book.

  14. Interesting fact about Syndrome E is that it was originally written in French.

  15. I love Sanderson's books and he seems like a very nice person. If you get a chance to attend one of his signings, do so. He is also part of a podcast called 'Writing Excuses' that is entertaining as well as informative.

  16. It seems like Sanderson is as prolific as Stephen King. Two Mistborn books within 4 months, the next Reckoners book due out next month and he has yet another series he's in the middle of. I don't know where he finds the time.

  17. It was really cool to get a glimpse into a time not too unlike our own. A time where even if as a nation we wanted to mind our own business, there would be external forces that would keep that from happening.

  18. Ooo I like that you have a mix of genres there, Robert. I've finally got round to reading Sanderson for the first time last week, so I'm in that I-Will-Buy-Anything-I-Will-Read-Anything phase with this author. Will add Bands of Mourning to the list. Thanks for sharing!
