stacking the shelves 9/29

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews where we show off all the goodies we received throughout the week!
FOR REVIEW
FROM THE LIBRARY

:) Pretty excited about these! The Scientific Sherlock Holmes is, well, just that. It’s a non-fic (which I looove) that delves into the science of Sherlock!

Shelf Life is a collection of short stories about bookstores! For new visitor to the blog, I’m a bookseller, so anything regarding bookstores is right up my alley. An introduction by Neil Gaiman and contributions by some seriously fantastic authors give me pretty high hopes for this book!

Saving Moby Dick is the second book in the Enchanted Attic series. I had reviewed the first book, Facing the Hunchback of Notre Dame and enjoyed it, so I’m really looking forward to this one. Also: Moby Dick. ♥

I took a walk down to my library a few days ago and The Malice of Fortune caught my eye. It’s definitely a Dan Brown-esque thriller, but both Da Vinci & Michiavelli are main characters, so it’ll definitely be interesting.

In Case You Missed It
Earlier in the week I reviewed Unspoken, the book currently taking the YA world by storm. With an absolutely GORGEOUS cover, a totally kick-butt premise, and tons of glowing reviews I went into it with high expectations.

Unfortunately, I was a little let down. The first half of the novel was fantastic. After the halfway mark, however, Unspoken started to lose its steam and kept its steady decline right up to the grinding halt of an end.

You can read my full 3-star review here.

I also posted a companion piece to Unspoken‘s review here. Throughout the novel there are multiple excerpts from poems and I thought it would be fun to post them and include links to the original works.

  1. Thanks for the heads-up regarding Saving Moby Dick! That’s one I really want to read, as I also enjoyed Facing the Hunchback of Notre Dame. I was hoping it would eventually find its way up on NetGalley!

    Enjoy all your books!
