Stacking the Shelves

Hi everyone! It’s time for Stacking the Shelves again. I thought I wouldn’t have a big haul this week, but I did spend my Kobo voucher in the end, and picked up some books at the convention I went to. Oops!

Dead tree books

Cover of Six Against the Yard by The Detective Club Cover of The Sorceress and the Cygnet by Patricia McKillip Cover of The Cygnet and the Firebird by Patricia McKillip

Cover of Mistress of Mistresses by E.R. Edison Cover of A Fish Dinner in Memison  by E.R. Edison Cover of The Mezentian Gate by E.R. Edison

Cover of Moon-flash by Patricia McKillip Cover of Nova by Samuel R Delany

Patricia McKillip! No one is surprised! Got a compliment at FACTs about my taste in books, hee. Been meaning to read more Eddison for a while, I think I’ve mentioned, and Nova is one that Jo Walton’s spoken highly of. I’ve already read Six Against the Yard, and the review should be up tomorrow.

Cover of Infinity Blade: Awakening by Brandon Sanderson

Wild Cards sounds fun, and I’ve been meaning to read more G.R.R. Martin, so, voila. Infinity Blade: Awakening is based on a game, apparently, but reviews say you don’t need to know the game. And maybe I’ll decide I want to play the game, too!

Aaaand my one review copy, which I think I requested because someone I know gave it a good review:

So what’s everyone else been getting? Comment, link, etc — I always visit your blog in return if you visit me!

  1. I picked up On the Steel Breeze by my favourite contemporary Welsh author, Alastair Reynolds, yesterday…which is bad because I was supposed to be buying things for other people!

  2. I really will have to start watching Game of Thrones season one…yes I haven’t seen a single episode yet due to a lack of time for TV! I have the first couple of books but want to see the series first. Hope you enjoy your big book haul!

    • I need to get on with reading the books — my sister’s getting far ahead of me. I won’t say I’m gonna watch the series; I’m really, really terrible at watching TV at the best of times… and now I’m starting a medical secretary course and then a science course with the Open University and just… yikes, heh.


  3. Fun books! 🙂

    Quick question: Sanderson – where should I start? I can’t seem to find anything of his that isn’t a sequel around here physically, and I’m not even sure what I *should* be looking for anyway.

    • I started with one of his novellas, I think — Legion? But he has a couple of standalones; I enjoyed Warbreaker and I’m enjoying Elantris. I haven’t actually read one of his series yet! Well, except Rithmatist, which is YA and the first in a series. (The reviews for that and Warbreaker are definitely up on the blog if you use the search bar.)

  4. The George R. R. Martin ones look interesting, and I really like how those covers match up! I haven’t heard of that Sanderson before though, although it definitely looks good. I hope you enjoy your books. 🙂
