Stacking the Shelves & The Sunday Post

Posted June 1, 2024 by Nicky in General / 2 Comments

Last week I didn’t get round to visiting any blogs, and I’m behind on comments again. That’s because I realised my exam is on Monday, and not a week on Monday! And our shower broke, too, so I tried to clean and tidy a lot for the Royal Visit, AKA my dad coming over to see if it was some kind of simple problem he could remedy. Sooo I’ve been a little busy, and I haven’t been doing much reading (or blogging).

Still, I thought I’d check in!

Books acquired this week

That’d be a big fat zero this time! My wife’s been offering to buy me some more E.C.R. Lorac books on Kindle, since they’re cheap, but I keep forgetting to look through the Kindle store to see which ones are actually available vs which ones I have.

So, for now, nothing added to my shelves.

Posts from this week

As usual, here’s a recap of the reviews I posted this week!

And that was it for the week — I haven’t had the energy (or time) for linkups, alas.

What I’m reading

This weekend I’m trying to chill and just do fun stuff, since I don’t really believe I’ll make much progress on studying in the last day or so before an exam. Better to show up well-rested and a bit more supple in the brain department. So I’ve spent my afternoon reading Murder on the Titania, by Alex Acks, and starting on Martha Wells’ System Collapse. Just for variety, I’m also planning on picking up one of E.C.R. Lorac’s mysteries: I try to save those for when I need ’em, but I think this qualifies.

As for what I’ve been reading that’s coming up for review on the blog, here we go:

Cover of The History of the World in 100 Animals by Simon Barnes Cover of Out of the Depths by Alan G. Jamieson Cover of Murder on the Titania by Alex Acks

Wish me luck with the exam…!

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

  1. Good luck with your exam!! The History of the World in 100 animals sounds amazing, I read one called A History of the Word in 100 objects that I really loved so I’m hoping this has a similar set-up of short chapters that are engaging, it sounds like something I’d love!

  2. You have a full plate! I hope the shower problem is an easy fix and your exam goes well. I hope you are enjoying Murder on the Titania! I enjoyed the first in the Murderbot Diaries series and need to read more. I loved the first book. I will have to give Cat Sebastian a try. I was just thinking I need to explore more historical romance and your review of The Ruin of a Rake has me tempted to pick that one up. I hope you have a great week!
