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?


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.


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!


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.
