Stacking the Shelves

Stacking the Shelves [59]

I kept this week to a minimum for the most part, I do have two more library books coming in and one more review book that I might be getting.  But yes, I’m trying to get through the books I have!

Library:

25332000The Nameless City (The Nameless City #1) by Faith Erin Hicks

This is a graphic novel about a city that is forever being taken over by different groups who rename the city each time, which leads to the title: the citizens here call their city the Nameless City.  This is to first part of the story of a girl who is a native to the Nameless City and a boy who is part of the most recent invading culture.  While she originally despises him, something happens and the fate of the city falls in their hands.  I was recommended this book and found it at my library so figured, why not?

The Stone Heart (The Nameless City #2) by Faith Erin Hicks29102807

The second book in the graphic noel series about a city that is continuously taken over by different outside cultures.  I haven’t looked too much into what this second installment is about mostly because I haven’t read the first one yet. So, yes this is a second book that I basically picked up because I learned that one of my local libraries has it and I’ve been having good luck with enjoying graphic novels as of late and so I’m looking to read more and why not have both books that are out to go straight through them? Side note, this book just came out last month!

 

For Review:

34511974Quincey Wolfe’s Glass Vault by Candace Robinson

I received this book from NetGalley for review and I honestly wasn’t sure that I would receive it.  I don’t have the best NetGalley rating but I couldn’t help but ask.  I’ve been reading more horror books as of late, or at least darker books.  In this story, the people of a small town in Texas are disappearing and our main character’s ex-boyfriend and best friend are among those who go missing. There’s something about how they are stuck in a museum and there are fairy tale retellings and I was sold at this slightly strange but gorgeous cover…as you have all learned recently I’m a sucker for a good cover.
