Stacking the Shelves

I’ve been a bit naughty in the last week. In my defence, there was a signing in a bookshop and my sister insisted I get one of the books below. Uh. That’s a good defence, right?

Acquisitions

Cover of The City by Stella Gemmell Cover of Signal to Noise by Sylvia Moreno-Garcia Captain Marvel: Stay Fly

Cover of From Eternity to Here by Sean Carroll Cover of Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige Cover of Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

I forgot about the issues with Full Fathom Five when I picked up Dorothy Must Die; that was the one my sister wanted me to get, because of Ollie the talking monkey. I feel a little bad about that.

Arrivals

Cover of The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh Cover of Dreams of the Golden Age by Carrie Vaughn

These have been on order for a while and finally arrived this week!

Library

Cover of Ancillary Justice by Ann Leckie Cover of Ancillary Sword by Ann Leckie Cover of Landline by Rainbow Rowell

Cover of Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell by Susanna Clarke Cover of Ring of Bright Water by Gavin Maxwell

Those with long memories will know I actually owned the first four already (and I’ve read Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell before), but I thought I’d grab them in dead tree to see if it would poke me to get on with it and read them!

So overall, a very satisfying haul for me! Must put some of these on the June TBR list, since the May one was a success for me. How’s everyone else been doing? Lots of new books? Exciting library trips? Self-control and budgeting?

  1. Okay, I am super disappointed that I forgot about the issues with Frey, because I love Dorothy Must Die and its sequels and I want to keep reading them, dang it.

    I am very interested to see what you think about Leckie’s books, because I legitimately do not know how I feel about them. I read the first one last year, right before the Hugos, and I am thinking about doing a reread to see if my opinion changes a second time around.

  2. I’ve been taking it easy with the review titles lately, but went crazy this week. 🙂

    Good luck with your books! I didn’t care for Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell (the pacing was glacially slow), but I am curious about Ancillary Sword & Justice.

    • I’ve been restraining myself greatly, because I have a goal to get to 80% feedback on NG by the end of the year! But I did try one request for Chris F. Holm’s new book, because oh, I wants it.

      I liked it when I read it before. I’m getting nervous of the reread though, with everyone complaining! As for Leckie’s books, I’m hopeful; a lot of people I know adore them.
