Stacking the Shelves (254)

Stacking the Shelves

I have found the plot! No, seriously, I have a copy of The Lost Plot, the next book in the absolutely fantastic Invisible Library series. And even though it doesn’t come out until January, now that I have it, I’m not sure I’ll be able to resist. If you believe that there is magic in books (and there is, there definitely is) this series is a gem. And if you start now with the first book, The Invisible Library, you should have enough time to catch up, including a chance to take a breath between dives into this marvelous world. You’ll need them.

A couple of other interesting titles popped up, or popped into my list this week. The City of Brass looks interesting, especially because it was one of the publisher’s really, really big featured titles in that SF/Fantasy article I did for Library Journal. And I’m really curious about Seventh Decimate. Back in the day, I read the entire Thomas Covenant series. They were good, but very, very depressing. I liked his Mirror of Her Dreams / A Man Rides Through duology much better, because he managed a happy ending and I was both charmed and astonished. I’m curious to see where this one will fall.

  1. Love that you have a mix of books here. I don’t even know what Hunger is about but I need to go check it out as I am really drawn to the cover.

  2. I love The Invisible Library series! I need to get caught up . . . It really is a great series! Your latest haul looks really good, Marlene. I’m eager to read A Spoonful of Magic. And I have a copy of Hunger I’m looking forward to reading as well. I hope you enjoy them all!

  3. You’ve sold me on The Invisible Library series. I just got the first audiobook in the series and can’t wait to listen!

    Have a great week and enjoy all your goodies!
