I spent some money on books this weekend. I couldn’t help it! I’ve been under a lot of pressure lately and buying books makes me feel better. A little retail therapy, if you will. Certainly less expensive than regular therapy, isn’t it? So here’s this week’s “Stacking the Shelves,” hosted by Tynga’s Reviews.
- All four books in the Iron Fey series by Julie Kagawa: Iron King, Iron Daughter, Iron Queen, and Iron Knight. I had promised myself that I would finish this series, but got tired of waiting for my library to get the books in. I plan on reviewing the whole series once I finish it. I’m working on Iron Queen right now.
- The Amulet of Samarkand by Jonathan Stroud. I reviewed this book here and, as you can see, I really enjoyed it. I also found it at the used bookstore for ridiculously cheap. This is another series that I intend to finish at some point.
- City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare. I am also going to finish this series, if I can ever get all the books. Again, the library hasn’t been helpful. These books are always checked out. I own the first three and now I own the fourth. I wanted to get the fifth book, City of Lost Souls, but it’s not out in paperback yet. All my other books in this series are paperback editions and I want them all to match.
- Deadline by Mira Grant. I just finished Feed last week – holy cow! Reviews for that coming soon as well. Since I know that Mark Reads is going to start this one soon, I picked it up as well. Plus, I really need to know what happens!
- Rhapsody by Elizabeth Haydon. I know nothing about this book, but the Mallorean Tavern will be reading it for an upcoming book club.
Yes, you read it right. I got eight books this weekend. I feel better now. 🙂

I enjoyed watching you add to your collections. The title “Amulet of Samarkand” always cracks me up. It just pops out at me as the Amulet of Snarkland and I’m sure that would be a whole different story. Probably should read it so I can get that idea out of my head, right? I’m guessing it’s not a book about a lot of snarky people living in a snarky land making lots of snarky comments 🙂
Actually the main character is pretty snarky. But he’s a demon, so you’d have to expect at least a little attitude. 🙂
