Stacking the Shelves

Posted August 1, 2015 by Nicky in General / 18 Comments

Just two books bought so far this week — I couldn’t resist it, since it’s N.K. Jemisin and set in her The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms world. And there’s Terry Pratchett’s essay on death, which supports assisted dying, a subject I’m very interested in, even if it’s a little morbid sat here in my STS post!

I’m excited for The Fifth Season, too. I’ve got a preorder, so hopefully I’ll get that one as soon as it’s out.

Hurrah, so glad The Dark Blood of Poppies came in for me at the library before I had to leave for my holiday. Relief! Now I can get on with that.

  1. Terry Pratchett’s final farewell on Twitter had me all choked up when I read it. It was the perfect send off though, having Death walk into the sunset with him, so to speak. I think assisted dying is a subject that needs to be talked about a lot more in order to find the right way forward. Enjoy your reading!

  2. I got myself a copy of Of Bone and Thunder last month too. And I hope to read N.K. Jemisin’s Shades in Shadow once I’ve actually read her Inheritance trilogy, but I did read The Fifth Season and it was amazing.

    • I had it as an ARC long ago, so this is another one of those guilt loans, heh. Must get round to it soon. I do recommend waiting until you’ve read the trilogy for Shades in Shadow; I almost wish I’d reread them recently myself.
