Stacking the Shelves & The Sunday Post

Posted May 18, 2024 by Nicky in General / 8 Comments

Oof, it’s been a busy week. The marks from my assignments have been coming in, though not for the one I care most about, d’oh. I’ve done well so far, though!

Anyway, let’s get to the books.

Books acquired this week

Despite saying I wasn’t going to acquire anything for a while after last week’s spree, this week I was a bit meh and stressed out, so my wife treated me. I love Cat Sebastian’s work, and I’d just read Daniel M. Ford’s The Warden and been rather annoyed that I didn’t have the sequel. Sooo… my wife’s the best.

And I also got a new review copy from Tor — I quite liked the first book, so I’m eager to get to this one.

But other than that, I’ve been restrained! Except, oh… a new installment of A Side Character’s Love Story popped up, and I had to have it.

I’d promise next week really will be quiet, but I had amazing results from my assignments so far, so most likely there’ll be a celebration. And celebrations ’round here almost always mean books.

Reviews posted this week

As usual, here’s the roundup of reviews posted this week:

And no other posts this week!

What I’m reading

It’s been a slightly quieter reading week, but a good one (as you can see from the sneak peek of the books I’ve finished this week and will be reviewing here soon). I particularly loved The Hands of Time and A Letter to the Luminous Deep, but really I enjoyed all of these very much.

This weekend I’ve been digging into Brian Deer’s account of the Andrew Wakefield scam, which is raising my blood pressure much as I expected it to. At the same time, though, it’s nice to see the evidence all laid out against Wakefield. (As a reminder, I think he’s next thing to a murderer; you’ll waste your breath trying to argue with me here.)

After that… maybe it’s finally time for me to tuck in and read System Collapse, the newest Murderbot book. Or maybe I should first focus on finishing Cat Sebastian’s The Ruin of a Rake.

Either way, there’s no shortage of good books to read around here. How’s everyone else doing?!

Linking up with Reading Reality’s Stacking the Shelves, Caffeinated Reviewer’s The Sunday Post, and the Sunday Salon over at Readerbuzz, as usual!

    Wakefield is truly a public enemy for our time. He has very much caused death and destruction! You are so right.
    best, mae at

  2. I been enjoying the books i picked recently i had a very quick dnf yesterday though it was a historical fiction and it just did not work for me to much modern language and i was not loving the story line. That book was the dangerous ones so i started on my books that i have on netgalley that come out next month. I started sea side sisters which i think is more what i was in the mood for at the time.

  3. I am trying to not get anything new, whether it is library or ARC or whatever. But I am also weak when I see something about a period I love, or an author I love…And now that summer is here by brain is thinking I can accept all the ARCs offered, while conventiently forgetting the ones still waiting that I acquired during the last few months of the school year *facepalm*
