Candide by Voltaire Book CoverAgatha Christie's Death on the Nile Book Cover Dark Heir by Faith Hunter (Jane Yellowrock #9)

I went with a couple of the more classical writers this month and wound  up with a selection from Votaire and one from Agatha Christie.  Candide is a very simple yet very strange story.  I wasn’t sure whether to take it as allegory, parody or just an oddly written story.  Death on the Nile was a bit more straight forward even though there were twists and turns sufficient for a murder mystery.  I enjoyed the Christie book a bit more but, they are book good reads.

Then my love affair with Miss Jane Yellowrock continued with the latest volume in that series.  The more Jane changes, the more she stays the same.  I have to admit, some of the way I view some characters in the series has shifted a bit with this book.

Now, I ask for a bit of assistance.  I’ve almost chosen an established series to take up.  I plan to review one volume from the series each month.  I also encourage all the readers to use the comments section not only to remark on that months selection (no spoilers, please) but, also to comment on the series up to that point.  If you’ve considered but haven’t picked up any of those in the poll, now’s a good time to have me be your ‘to in the water.”  If there something you want me to try that’s not in the poll, select other.

What established series would you like to have me review?

So, what golden oldie or new classic have you chosen for yourself?

    Hi Robert,
    This is my first time at Stacking the Shelves. You have a good selection here! I voted for Sookie! Loved the TV series but never read the books. Looking forward to that review. Happy Reading!

    Ooh nice! Those are new to me reads! I think I tried Jane Yellowrock back when it first started, but it just wasn’t for me.

    Also, just to note, the Kitty Norville Series is by Carrie Vaughn. Just wanted to stick in a friendly correction! That’s what I voted for! I still need to read the latest book and then the last book in August! EEP!

    My STS will be up tomorrow, so be sure to stop by then!

    Have a GREAT day!

      Thanks, Jessica! It’s really embarrassing to make such a mistake with so available. I’ve enjoyed short stories from both of these ladies and I guess that’s why I confused them. Don’t be surprised to see a Rachel Caine review under my name in the near future.

    I just realized my mistake on the poll: Carrie Vaughn writes Kitty Norville, not Rachel Cain. This is why I shouldn’t write strictly from memory. As penance, I will buy a book from each author. Having been exposed to both authors in anthologies is what helped fuel my confusion.
