Stacking the Shelves (93)

Stacking the Shelves

This is the first time in a while that I’ve had books in every category. I want to read the new Charlaine Harris, but after the way that Sookie went downhill, I decided that borrowing it from the library was sufficient. If I really like it, I can always buy it. Whispers in the Sand by Barbara Erskine was on sale for Kindle. I loved her Lady of Hay, many moons ago, and thought that $2.99 made it worth trying her again.

I also have the annual treat: the new book in Michelle Sagara’s Elantra Chronicles popped up on NetGalley this week. I can’t wait to sink my eyeballs into that one!

  1. 🙂 I don’t know that I thought that Sookie went downhill so much as after the first couple of times, I got tired of her constantly getting beat up, her favorite people dying, the men who should have been good to her treating her like crap, her friends being jerks. One or two times on any one, but it was like all of the above in all the books and sometimes multiply within several of the books. I held out longer than I probably should have and now I’m sitting here having read all but the last one, wondering if I should do so just to get the closure on the story arc. Except that I’m pretty sure that several people I like will die, boyfriends and/or exes will be crappy to her, some more friends will end up being jerky, and she’ll probably spend some time receiving ER type treatment. Can somebody do a “good parts version” for me? I’m pretty sure it wouldn’t be a very long read.

    1. Have you seen “After Dead”? It’s the what happened after to every character in alphabetical order. You can figure out what happened during the last book, and some of the entries are funny.

      I reviewed the last book, it was OK. The big thing seemed to be that everyone Sookie had ever been in contact with who was still above ground at least some of the time came to say goodbye in some way.

  2. Nice haul! Thanks for alerting me to Cast in Flame. I just downloaded it to my Kindle. I have read the most recent Charlaine Harris and enjoyed it. I’ll be following along with that series. I note that a lot of your review books are in series and aren’t the first. Have you read the rest of the series or do you just start with the review one?

    Come see what I got this week at Ms. Martin Teaches Media and Inside of a Dog. Happy reading!

    1. The entire Elantra series is just plain awesomesauce. It’s good to know about the Charlaine Harris, I loved Sookie at the beginning and wanted to brain her with a clue-by-four long before the end.

      Usually, when I get a series book, it’s because I’ve either already read the entire series (like Cast in Flame) or I have the series and seriously intend to read it.

      I’m a terrible completist. I feel compelled to read the entire series.
