The Last Five Books I Bought

I thought it might be interesting to give you guys a peek at my TBR pile. Though, two of these books I've already read and reviewed. Some books just have a habit of jumping the queue.

The Evil That Men Do
by Dave White

Having read White's first book, I was eagerly anticipating the release of this one. I picked it up the week it came out and it jumped to the top of the TBR pile. I reviewed it elsewhere, but I'll just say again that it's recommended.
The Blade Itself
by Marcus Sakey

I had heard a lot of great things about this book, so it had been on my radar for a bit. Reading Marcus's story in the Killer Year Anthology made it my next purchase. Like I said before, one of the best books I've read in a while.

Saving the Queen, Stained Glass, and Mongoose R.I.P.
by William F. Buckley, Jr.

After Buckley's recent death, family and National Review staff have been going through his personal effects. Among other things, they found boxes and boxes of paperback editions of WFB's books. National Review then decided to put these books on sale for the phenomenal price of $4 each - including shipping. I had long heard about Buckley's Blackford Oakes series, but hadn't read any. Since all except the last one are out of print, I couldn't pass up this great deal. I also get the added bonus of owning a book that was actually his. I haven't read any of them yet, so I can't add my two cents.
