Stacking the Shelves

Posted November 29, 2014 by in General / 24 Comments

This week looks quite busy, but I have excuses, I promise…


Cover of Remnant Population by Elizabeth Moon Cover of The Language Wars by Henry Hitchings Cover of Bitter Greens by Kate Forsyth

Cover of Creation by Adam Rutherford Cover of If Walls Could Talk by Lucy Worsley

I’ve been meaning to pick up Bitter Greens for a while, and my sister loves Elizabeth Moon, so that’s why those two — and the non-fiction, well, they were fairly random picks from the library non-fiction section. I do love having random non-fiction to read.


Cover of Native Tongue, by Suzette Elgin Haden Cover of The Terrorists of Irustan by Louise Marley Cover of The Glass Harmonica by Louise Marley

Cover of A Seed on the Wind by Cat Rambo Cover of Queen & Commander by Janine A. Southard Cover of Hive & Heist by Janine A. Southard

This looks fairly busy, but I spent less than £5 myself — a friend from a book group bought me Native Tongue, after a discussion went pretty nasty in the group, which picked my mood up greatly. The Terrorists of Irustan was a rec that came out of that, too. And then I spotted Damaged Worlds, which contains those four books plus a short story by Cecilia Tan for under £1. So I thought I might as well give them a go.

So, not a bad haul for me, and pretty cheap too! What’s everyone else been grabbing?

    Your books look fun! I’ve been meaning to read Bitter Greens and I’m interested to see if you like it.

    The Language Wars looks right up my alley, will have to see if I can find it. 🙂

  2. Looks like a nice mixture of books there-hope you enjoy your haul! I hope that things are better at your next book group meeting. I find it sad that people can’t discuss a book like adults and disrespect those who disagree with them-you see it all too often on Goodreads. Happy reading!

    • The book group is actually based on Goodreads, so at least it was easy to kick the guy out of the group and delete his nastiness. He said he was going to send me a proper apology for some of the things he said to me, but strangely enough, there’s no sign…
