Stacking the Shelves

Posted February 7, 2015 by in General / 37 Comments

And another week gone! This year is flying by already… which in a way is fortunate, because I was excited for the two books I picked up this week, both out on 03/02 (coincidentally, my mother’s birthday). Now it’s just A Darker Shade of Magic to go and then I’ll have the books I’m most eagerly coveting…


Cover of Karen Memory by Elizabeth Bear Cover of Trigger Warning by Neil Gaiman

The cover of Karen Memory is just perfect. I’m already partway through — might even have finished it by the time this goes live — and enjoying it very much. I’ve already finished Trigger Warning


The Periodic Table Cover of Stonehenge by Mike Parker Pearson

Guess who’s onto the chemistry section of their Open University textbook? And Stonehenge, well, who can resist archaeology about Stonehenge?

For review

Cover of The Mechanical by Ian Tregillis Cover of The Errant Prince by Sasha L. Miller Cover of Gates of Thread and Stone

Cover of Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas Cover of Nightshade by R.J. Scudiere Cover of The Adventures of Monkey Girl and Tiger Kite by Kai Schalk

I still haven’t read a single book by Ian Tregillis. I have them. I just need to, you know, read them. Oops.


Ms Marvel Operation Sin #2

Peggyyyyy. I really need to watch Agent Carter, too. Mind you, I still really need to watch Agents of SHIELD and, uh, Norton’s Hulk (though really Mark Ruffalo is the only Bruce Banner for me, sorry).

Anyway, this was quite a big haul for me, but I’m still keeping to my resolutions! For now, at least. I do need to hurry up and get reading my review copies, though. How’s everyone else been doing? Any massive hauls?

  1. I did some courses at the Open University a good few years ago and really enjoyed it. It was just for fun but the subjects sound really cool and impressive when you tell someone about it! The astronomy course nearly blew my head off as I was hopeless at maths and physics…! Enjoy your books!

  2. Great haul of books! Can’t wait to see what you think of Karen Memory so will look out for your review. I really want to get a copy but I’m being good and sticking to all of my rules 🙁 I got The Mechanical this week too, and have his Milkweed Triptych trilogy sitting on my shelves, unread…

    Enjoy your new books and happy reading 🙂

  3. I’m waiting for netgalley to let request A Court of Thorns and Roses for US because so far it is only for UK and AUS :/ I hope you enjoy your books 🙂 I’ve noticed a couple of bloggers have gotten Gates of Thread and Stone so I really need to check it out.

    • I think Gates of Thread and Stone is on ‘read now’ on Netgalley, if you’re interested in that! I was a bit surprised I was approved for A Court of Thorns and Roses, but I’m looking forward to reading it.

  4. Great haul! I received Trigger Warning this week too and am really looking forward to reading it! And love the cover of Karen Memery, but on the fence about buying a copy as I don’t usually read steampunk. I’m not watching Agent Carter, but really like Agents of Shield. Hope you enjoy all of your new reads!

  5. Karen Memory was awesome! I hope you enjoy it. Now I’m eagerly awaiting A Darker Shade of Magic as well 🙂

    And I have The Mechanical for review as well, and I’m very excited. I’ve read Ian Tregillis’ Something More Than Night and two out of three books in his Milkweed Triptych trilogy and liked them all very much. I hope we’ll both enjoy his new book.

    I cracked and bought my first books of the year on Friday. It was two more photos of Bath books that I hardly need!

  7. Nice haul! I’ve been eyeing Gates of Thread and Stone and now that I’m seeing it all over the place, I can’t wait to add it to my TBR pile. And I love that you have a book about Stonehenge. I’m a bit of a geek for history and archaeology 😉 And I love Sarah J. Maas’ other series so I’m anxious to see what she does with A Court of Thorns and Roses. Hope you enjoy all of them!
