Stacking the Shelves & The Sunday Post

Posted June 8, 2024 by Nicky in General / 1 Comment

Yay, it’s the weekend!

Long week here: my first exam was on Monday. I started it at 10am, and didn’t finish up and submit it until 8:30pm — though that time includes breaks for stretching, food and rest, it was a lot of work. Two more to come, on Monday and Tuesday, and then I’m freeee.

So I’m still not caught up with comments on my blog, and might just need to call amnesty on the ones I’ve received so far and do better going forward.

Books acquired this week

…Zero! This isn’t really intentional — actually, I’m still meaning to pick some more of E.C.R. Lorac’s books to get on Kindle — but I keep forgetting.

Posts from this week

Despite everything, I’ve been keeping up with getting my backlog of reviews posted, so here’s a roundup:

And that was it for posts this week!

What I’m reading

I started the week not reading very much, really, but in the past few days I’ve got busy finishing books from the huge stack of books I technically have part-read all at the same time, plus doing a reread of a favourite (Becky Chambers’ The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet). Here’s a glimpse at the books that I finished that I’ll be reviewing on the blog in the next weeks and months…

Cover of System Collapse by Martha Wells Cover of Death Came Softly by E.C.R. Lorac Cover of The Vinyl Frontier by Jonathan Scott Cover of The Book of Looms by Eric Broudy

Now I’m just trying to have a nice chill weekend reading whatever catches my fancy — right now I’m finally getting back into In Deeper Waters, by F.T. Lukens.

How’s everyone doing?

(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!

One response to “Stacking the Shelves & The Sunday Post

  1. I just introduced myself to Becky Chambers’ work (the Monk and Robot novels) and enjoyed them. Planning on reading more of her. In the past few days I received one ARC and two library books, so I’m gonna be busy:

    Lawless Republic: The Rise of Cicero and the Fall of Rome. Advanced review copy examining Cicero’s legal career and how his cases were tied to the Republic’s attempt at reestablishing legitimacy before surrendering to Caesar.

    Library books:
    Scarcity Brain. Nonfiction — about desire, anxiety, the itch to ‘get’.
    Zero Day, a murder mystery/thriller about a pair of cybersecurity specialists running afould of nefarious parties. One specialist is murdered and the other framed, I think. I don’t know much about it all, but present-day omputer fiction is rare enough that I snap it up immediately. Mark Russonovich has a couple of novels, and Cory Doctorow’s “Little Brother” series and “Attack Surface” are also in that vein.
