For those of you with triskadecaphobia, this would be the unlucky number edition of Stacking the Shelves.
But I’m not particularly afraid of the number 13, especially not when I have such terrific books in my blissfully short stack this week!
As I predicted last week, I did pretty much inhale An Officer’s Duty as soon as it downloaded. There’s only one thing about it that bothers me, just one teeny-tiny little thing–it looks like I have to wait a whole year for the next book in the series!
The other book I bought was Ben Aaronovitch’s Midnight Riot, because of something I saw in Shelf Awareness this week. Midnight Riot is the first book in an urban fantasy/crime series set in London. Aaronovitch has also written for Doctor Who, which alone was enough to make me buy the first book. But I love police-type urban fantasy, so I’m astonished I didn’t hear about this series sooner. (There are two more books after Midnight Riot; Moon Over Soho and Whispers Underground.
And Julie Kagawa’s Lost Prince isn’t lost anymore. He’s been found at NetGalley. I may hold off until the prequel? bridge? novella Iron’s Prophecy is available on September 1. I hate feeling like there’s something I’m missing.
