Stacking the Shelves (252)

Stacking the Shelves

We saw Hamilton when we in Chicago this summer. But I hadn’t read the book, yet, and wanted to. I’ve been on the hold list at the library all this time, and my copy finally came in. Ebook, of course. Now I just need to carve out some time to read it. The author has a new book about Ulysses S. Grant coming out next month, and I’ll probably end up reading that one first. There are reasons…

While I’m looking forward to everything, of course, the one that has me really intrigued is Blood of the Four by Christopher Golden and Tim Lebbon. They wrote one of my favorite post-Katrina New Orleans books, The Map of Moments. And while that was kind of urban fantasy, and Blood of the Four is either epic fantasy, dark fantasy or both, I’m still eager to see what they’ve done this time.

Speaking of hurricanes, it looks like Atlanta is going to get the rump end of Irma on Tuesday. Thankfully, we are far enough inland that by the time it reaches us it should be downgraded back to a tropical storm. But it looks like my friends in Gainesville FL are going to get hammered when it’s still at Cat 3. Stay safe everyone!

  1. Hi, Marlene! All of your books sound so good! My dad was really into books about the U.S. presidents when he was alive. He has some really old ones. I hadn’t realized the musical Hamilton was based on a book (but then, I don’t know much about the musical at all really–I haven’t seen it myself and I don’t think it’s played anywhere near here at all). Now that I know, I’m really curious about the book! I do love history, but I read so little nonfiction, much less biographies, which I would like to change.

    Blood of Four sounds really good, as does Jesmyn Ward’s book. I will have to look for both of those.

    I hope you have a great weekend! My daughter has her first soccer game of the season, and we’ll be off to that soon. Hopefully when we get home I’ll be able to get around and visit to see what everyone else added to their shelves recently.

    1. I love your moniker. Freddie tries to be a literary feline, but that mostly involved telling mommy to put the book down and pet him.

      Once upon a time, back when I had a long commute, I listened to a terrific audiobook about Lee and Grant. It was better than fiction. Since then, I’ve looked for more books about Grant. So I’m curious about the new one.

      I hope that you are somewhere out of the path of Irma, and that your daughter’s team wins.
