Stacking the Shelves (494)

Another tall stack of books in this week’s STS, some of which look even more interesting than usual.  (Not that all books don’t inherently generate at least a tiny bit of interest!) I think the most interesting cover in this bunch probably goes to Legends & Lattes if only in the sense of “who woulda thunk it?” The book I’m most looking forward to, again, not that I’m not looking forward to all of them eventually, but looking forward to immediately as in I’m reading it this weekend, is Kiss Hard by Nalini Singh. I’ve found her Psy-Changeling series interesting but I’ve kind of lost steam with it – or possibly vice versa – with the last couple of entries. But I love her contemporaries – possibly because they’re both excellent and relatively rare. (Rock Hard, which is a precursor to the Hard Play series, is still a big favorite.) And in the “big shoes to fill” category there’s Dead Man’s Hand by James J. Butcher whose urban fantasy protagonist Grimshaw Griswald Grimsby is going to have to live up to – or perhaps that’s down to – the reputation of Harry Dresden every bit as much as son James J. will be compared to his dad Jim Butcher.

  1. So many books! I’m going to check some of them out further but I just added Nobody But Us and They Can’t Take Your Name to my TBR wishlist. And I didn’t know LeVar Burton wrote books! My kids grew up on Reading Rainbow and even used to call this man “Reading Rainbow”, thinking this was his real name.
    Have a good week ahead.

  2. Wow, that’s quite a haul! Legends and Lattes has crossed my radar several times in the last few weeks; I’ll have to check it out. And I had no idea that LeVar Burton had written a book, so thank you for bringing that one to my attention. It doesn’t look like my sort of book (I’m trying to avoid doom-and-destruction these days, for obvious reasons), but I have a few family members who might enjoy it.

    Enjoy your books, and have a great week!
