Stacking the Shelves (#5)


It's Saturday and so it's time for Stacking the Shelves!
Here's what I managed to get my hands on:


Paperbacks:

American Gods by Neil Gaiman

(I can't believe) I haven't read any Neil Gaiman books, so when I went to the bookstore a few days back I went straight to the fiction section and sought American Gods. It has gotten pretty good reviews so I hope I won't be let down!

The Mammoth Book of Angels and Demons was only £2 at The Works, and as I'm really interesting in the mythology and conflicts of angel/demon goodness/badness I needed to have this collection of short stories. Even George R.R. Martin has written one of the stories! 

Have you read any of these? Were they any good? I'm pretty excited about these two!

  5. American Gods was the first book I've read by Neil Gaiman, but I was very disappointed. It sounded great, but it didn't impress me, it was too dark and depressing. Or maybe I just didn't get it because I'm not from USA haha :D I've read Coraline and liked it and I will read more of his books. I hope you like both of these!

    1. I'm sorry you didn't like it. :( Fortunately, I sometimes like to read some dark and depressing text, so hopefully I'll be fine. :D I've wanted to read Stardust and Neverwhere for really long time, so if I don' like American Gods, maybe I'll try those next. Or Coraline which you liked! :)

  6. I've only read one book by Gaiman, but I enjoyed it. Plus, he wrote an ep of Doctor Who (which is always awesome in my book). Happy reading :)
