Stacking the Shelves

It’s my birthday! Or, actually, it’s now two days after my birthday. I got some new bookish shirts (“high shelf esteem” being one of them; “I like to party and by party I mean read books” being another! They’re from like the shirts I reviewed here) and a few new books. Hurrah.


Cover of War with the Newts by Karel Capek Cover of Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe Cover of The Girl Who Fell Beneath Fairyland and Led the Revels There by Catherynne M Valente

Cover of The Girl who Soared Over Fairyland by Catherynne M. Valente Cover of Sparrow Hill Road by Seanan Mcguire Cover of R.U.R. by Karel Capek

And there was a library trip, of course.


Cover of Non-Stop by Brian Aldiss Cover of Magic Strikes by Ilona AndrewsΒ Cover of Magic Bleeds by Ilona Andrews

Cover of A Maze of Death by Philip K. Dick Cover of Blood Bound by Patricia Briggs

I’m a little worried I’m going to blend the plots of the Mercy Thompson and Kate Daniels books if I read them at the same time… still, the library in Cardiff doesn’t have them, and the library at my parents’ does, so!


Cover of Hawkeye: Rio Bravo by Matt Fraction Cover of Silk issue 6

I was supposed to getΒ Hawkeye for Christmas. Seriously! And now I finally have it and… I haven’t read volume three and my copy of volume three is not here. Gaaah.

What’s everyone else been grabbing?

  2. Happy Belated Birthday! It was also my birthday this week. Yay for August babies! πŸ˜€ I hope you enjoy your new books.

  3. This is my first week taking part in Stacking The Shelves! Hi πŸ™‚

    I haven’t heard of “The Girl Who..” series, nor have I read any Seanan Mcguire so I’ll be checking those out!

  4. Happy Belated B-day! Awesome book haul this week. I have not read the Valente’s Fairyland books but the covers are gorgeous. I’m a huge Patricia Briggs fan, though I lean more towards her Alpha and Omega series. I hope you enjoy your new books πŸ™‚

  5. Looks like a lovely haul! The Fairyland books have been on my TBR list forever, but I keep not getting to them. I’ve only read one Mercy Thompson book and I haven’t actually looked at Kate Daniels before now… I should probably do something about that! Happy reading! πŸ™‚

  6. Happy Belated Birthday! I went on a crazy book-buying spree this week. I live near Portland so I treated myself to a shopping trip at Powell’s which is a bookstore that is the size of a city block and 3 or 4 stories…Maybe you’ve heard of it? Bibliophile heaven!
