Stacking the Shelves

I’ve behaved myself shockingly well this week — no new books, no comics, and just a couple of library trips. Which is really odd, considering the readathon starts later today and normally I like stocking up… Hoping to pick up Crown of Midnight (Sarah J. Maas) from the library today, but it’s not open yet.

The Mary Stewart books are rereads, which I might revisit during the readathon… although I think Touch Not the Cat is the Stewart book I’ve read least recently, and I’m pretty sure I have a copy around here somewhere. The Secret Museum is one I’ve nearly finished; a fascinating exploration of all kinds of things too precious or difficult to display in traditional museums.

Oh, and I do have a review copy to be joyful over. Frances Hardinge’s latest!

Pretty excited about that one, even though I really need to stop requesting ARCs if I ever want to reach my goal of 80% ratio on Netgalley by the end of the year…

How’s everyone else been this week? Acquired anything shiny and interesting?

  1. Well done for behaving yourself! 😀 It looks like you’ve got some beautiful books to explore. 😀

  2. LOVE The Assassin’s Blade! I think it gives great perspective into who Celaena is. I also love the cover of The Witch’s Daughter. So gorgeous and still communicates the feel of the book. Great haul!

  4. I really want to read the Assassin’s Blade! Of course, I have to finish Throne of Glass before I do so…oops. The Netgalley 80% struggle….so hard. Every time I get close to the mark I screw it up. Great haul this week!

  5. “A Dance in Blood Velvet” <–the cover is drop dead gorgeous 0_______0 what is it about?

    ooh "The Assassin's Blade" 🙂 I have read a bit of that. I love "The Throne of Glass" series.

    Great haul 🙂

  6. Very nice! I’m not usually one to do short stories/anthologies from existing series, but Assassin’s Blade is one I’m willing to make an exception for because I like the books and I’ve heard this collection is pretty good!
