Stacking the Shelves & The Sunday Post

Posted March 23, 2024 by Nicky in General / 12 Comments

Yay, weekend!

I’m still struggling to get to grips with my essays etc, but I have finished full drafts of all three. One might need a total rewrite, but two are pretty much good to go, which is a relief. I did spend a book voucher to celebrate, but the books haven’t arrived and been unboxed yet, so I’ll show those off next week.

As per usual, I’m linking up with Reading Reality’s Stacking the Shelves, Caffeinated Reviewer’s The Sunday Post, and the Sunday Salon over at Readerbuzz.

Books acquired this week:

This week I got a gift from a friend, which I’d added to my TBR lately thanks to a really nasty review. Sometimes those do some good, ha.

And a review copy that has a pretty cover, via Tor:

I really enjoyed one of Freya Marske’s other books, though I haven’t finished reading that trilogy yet. So I’m excited for this one. Some Swordspoint vibes, unavoidably, but that’s a good thing.

Posts from this week:

As usual, here’s the roundup of what I’ve been posting! Reviews first.

And the other posts:

What I’m reading:

At the moment I seem to be going ham on the weekends and then it’s a bit quieter during the week. I’m okay with that! Here are the books I finished this week which I intend to review on the blog:

Cover of Big Ben Strikes Eleven by David Magarshack Cover of Wine by Meg Bernhard Cover of Navigational Entanglements by Aliette de Bodard

Cover of A Telegram from Le Touquet by John Bude Cover of The Seven Wonders of the Ancient World by Bettany Hughes Cover of Nick & Charlie by Alice Oseman

Over the weekend I have a lot of lovely-sounding plans to read various books and spend hoouuuurs reading. We’ll see how that shakes out — as always, the most important thing is getting a restful, restorative weekend, and reading whatever I feel like.

How’s everyone doing?

    • It was okay, but Heartstopper (which enlarges on their story) is a lot better, and covers a lot of the same ground. Though of course it’s a graphic novel, so people don’t always like that.

    • This one’s my fourth degree, so I’m well used to it — it’s just more difficult these days fitting it around a full time job, heh.

  1. Ugh, essays are my worst nightmare. I am so happy those days are over, well, just because of the essay writing, lol! Good luck, though. Happy Sunday, Nicky

  2. I put one of the Object Lessons books on my public wishlist. I took a look at the whole series, and I see a lot of those I’d like to read. Wine looks good.

    I hope you are able to rest and read this weekend!

  3. Great job on getting those essay drafts done! A blank page is more scary to me than having to edit, so I think you’re golden. I hope you did get your restorative weekend with lots of reading! Enjoy your week ahead!

  4. I hope you that were able to get all the reading done that you wanted! & this post is so fun I love the structure it’s making me wish I posted on Sundays lol
