Stacking the Shelves & The Sunday Post

Posted June 15, 2024 by Nicky in General / 14 Comments

I’m freeeeeeee! Yes, my exams are over, and the academic year too. I’ll start up again fairly soon, trying to get ahead on studying for the next year, especially since I’ll be sitting one of the hardest modules. But for now I’m taking some well-deserved time off!

Reading-wise I’m not entirely back in the swing of it yet, and I need to do some catchup with comments and saying hi to folks, but I’m back.

Books acquired this week

I haven’t got much new, but I did get this month’s British Crime Classic book from my subscription, the theme of which (academic stories) seems… a little on the nose for me right now.

I’m looking forward to digging into it, though I admit I haven’t read last week’s book yet.

Posts from this week

I didn’t do great at posting this week, missing two days, but here’s the roundup of the reviews that did go live!

What I’m reading

I haven’t been reading a ton this week, since I’ve been busy, and at least one of the books I did read I won’t be reviewing on the blog again (since it was a reread). But here’s a glimpse at the books I’ve read that I do plan to review on the blog sometime soon:

I’m not sure what I’ll be reading this weekend, to be honest. I think I’ll probably read more of Worn: A People’s History of Clothing (Sofi Thanhauser), reread Record of a Spaceborn Few (Becky Chambers), and… otherwise completely follow my whims.

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!

    Good to hear you have finished for this academic year! Good luck with the next phase.
    best, mae at

    • So far the recharging is going well — I think I managed to take good care of myself this year to enable a quick bounce back! But I’ll make sure to take plenty of time for myself, for sure.

  2. What a relief it is to be free for a time! Now you can read all you want and you can read what you want. Enjoy this break.

    I think, though, if I were you, I’d hold off on reading Lessons in Crime for a bit! lol

  3. Congrats on being done with your academic year. You deserve a breather! You need light summer reading for a change. Enjoy your break.

    • It really isn’t. It’s not my first time on this rodeo (this is my fourth degree, my second master’s) but it always catches me by surprise how exhausted I am by the end of the year.
