Stacking the Shelves

Posted June 5, 2021 by Nicky in General / 6 Comments

Good morning, folks! It’s been a while since I did any kind of weekly roundup, and I figured I’d get back into the swing of things a bit more gently and just do a Stacking the Shelves post — especially since I don’t really have any posts to highlight yet, though I’m starting to format the backlog of reviews and get ’em ready for public consumption.

So here we go, the fruits of my post-statistics-exam shopping spree!

Cover of Pandora's Jar by Natalie Haynes Cover of Gastrophysics by Charles Spence Cover of The Mystery of the Exploding Teeth by Thomas Morris Cover of Elephants on Acid by Alex Boese

Cover of Burning the Books by Richard Evenden Cover of How Emotions Are Made by Lisa Feldman Barrett Cover of Ancestors by Alice Roberts Cover of We Are Not Amused by David Crystal

A rather random-looking selection, I’ll admit, and all non-fiction this week — but my non-fiction stack was getting a bit threadbare, while my fiction stack seems to grow and grow and grow.

Look out for the Stacking the Shelves linkup over on Reading Reality!Ā And do drop a comment here if you’ve read any of the books above; I’ve heard mixed things about one or two!

    The tone of Elephants on Acid grated; making jokes about the suffering of people and animals didn’t sit well with me.

    • Yeah, I read something about that as well after I got it on an impulse. There are some really callous experiments out there — hopefully I can at least write a solid review.
