Throwback Thursday (71)


Trinity-college-library-dub-3 with blog title
I found this picture of Trinity College Library, and thought it would work for this meme with a little play with lighting and adding the words.


Let's talk about those books already on the shelves, yours or the stores.

I have a post for books I'm looking forward to coming out;
Unk
Looking Forward To...
But what about all those wonderful books that are ALREADY on the shelves.

Whether it be on your shelf waiting to be read or on the shelves in the stores waiting for you to give it a good home.

So, I thought I would share a book a week that is just waiting for me to travel through it's world.

Now... where do I start? Lets go by Published Date on the books...

This Week:

Ah, this one was a win for me about a year or more ago.  I really do want to get to this series, sounds dark and gritty to me.  And I like the dangerous sound here.

Goodreads Synopsis:
The King Arthur myth gets dramatically retold through the eyes of street hustler King, as he tries to unite the crack dealers, gangbangers and the monsters lurking within them to do the right thing. From the drug gangs of downtown Indianapolis, the one true king will arise. The King Arthur myth gets dramatically retold through the eyes of street hustler King, as he tries to unite the crack dealers, gangbangers and the monsters lurking within them to do the right thing. Broaddus' debut is a stunning, edgy work, genuinely unlike anything you've ever read.

  4. Hm... this one sounds interesting. I actually don't like the tales of King Arthur, but I do like the "remakes" like Mists of Avalon. I think I might like this one too.

  7. I love the movies about Arthur, love reading about he and his Knights and since this is a new author and book to me that has a unique twist to it may have to put it on my wishing to read list as well Melissa.
