Stacking the Shelves (August 19, 2012)

Tynga of Tynga's Reviews has a meme to spotlight the books we receive each week. Visit her site to check out the linky and see what everyone gets. I guarantee that your TBR pile will grow.

This was a quiet week until I decided to start buying J.D. Robb's In Death series for my Kindle. I read a new mystery that had many similarities to that series but wasn't as well done. I wanted to go back to the originals and see if they were as well-done as I remembered. This week I bought:
Naked in Death by J. D. Robb was the first book in the now long-running In Death series by Nora Roberts. This is a a futuristic romantic mystery series and great reading for fans of any of those genres - futuristic, romance, or mystery. It was published in 1995.

Glory in Death by J. D. Robb is the second book in the series.
Immortal in Death by J. D. Robb is the third book in the series and Rapture in Death is the fourth. 

I also bought two other books this week:
The Sleeping Beauty by Mercedes Lackey is the fifth book in her Five Hundred Kingdoms series of fantasy stories that are based on fairy tales but not quite in the traditional way. I added this one to my Kindle.

The Iron Wyrm Affair by Lilith Saintcrow is steampunk. I have heard good things about it and like other books this author has written under other variations of her name including her young adult Strange Angels series. 

Those are my new additions to my TBR mountain. What did you add to yours?


  1. I probably should read those books by Mercedes Lackey, but I have just soooooo many others to read still!

    Happy Reading!

  2. I haven't read any from the "In Death" series yet. I think the "futuristic" part scares me. I automatically think sci-fi, though that's probably not the case with this series!

    The Sleeping Beauty sounds really good! I love retold fairy tales.

    Enjoy your books!

  3. I've only read the first book in the Five Hundred Kingdoms series. I like the twist Mercedes Lackey puts on the fairytales.

  4. I love J.D. Robb's Eve Dallas series! Eve is such a great kick ass heroine and I love how much Roarke supports and loves her.

    Enjoy all your books and have a great week!

  5. Ooh! I want to read non-YA books but I still get bored with them. The last non-YA book I read took months to finish. LOL. I will try again soon. I have some books lined up for book tours. XD

  6. I wasn't able to finish The Iron Wyrm Affair, but other people have enjoyed it so hopefully you will too. I have a copy of Naked In Death that I hope to read soon. Thanks for sharing!

  7. Hmm the Sleeping Beauty! Looks great! But the Iron wyrm affair looks like a Sherlock Holmes story! Have a nice week!
