stacking the shelves – a weekly meme hosted by tynga’s reviews & reading reality
what I have been up to
Aside from spending way too much money on books and other bookish purchases, not a whole lot to be honest. I did go and see Deadpool 2 yesterday which I enjoyed quite a bit, even though it was nowhere near as good as the first film. I swear, Ryan Reynolds was born to play Deadpool. All of the referential jokes were on point though even if the plot was a little bit thin.
latest book purchases
I’m excited about ‘War Storm’ because I have been putting off reading this series until the last book was out. Now I can finally get stuck into it!
I already own ‘The Tawny Man’ series but these covers are awesome so I just had to have them! Does anyone else purchases multiple editions of their favourite books??
I actually bought ‘The Golden Fool’ awhile ago but forgot so when I bought the other two books in the series with these awesome covers I had to include it.
The final entry in ‘The Tawny Man’ series and the most heart-breaking one. I love this series the best of all the ‘Realm of the Elderlings’ books.
I got ‘The Queens of Innis Lear’ in a book box and it looks intriguing. How gorgeous is that cover too? The picture really doesn’t so it justice.
This series is giving me strong Juliet Marillier vibes so I am super-excited about starting ‘Heart of the Fae’! I love anything about mythology and the fae and retellings are my favourite thing of all!
‘Vein’s of Magic’ is the follow-up to ‘Heart of the Fae’ so I had to buy it alongside the first book. I am s looking forward to starting this series. I have heard so many good things!
‘Bride of the Sea’ is part of ‘The Otherworld’ series but it is a standalone so could be enjoyed on its own merit. I’m definitely going to start with ‘Heart of the Fae’ though!
Another series by Emma Hamm that looks really interesting. I decided to pick this one up too. I love finding new (to me!) authors.
‘The Ninth Gate’ looks amazing. Jen Williams is definitely an author who writes books that appeal to me so its time I tried one of her books.
received for review
This book looks really awesome. It definitely looks to be one that includes a lot of diversity and I am eager to see how well the author incorporates this. Plus, I love retellings!
Twin stories are my weakness. I’ll admit it. This one looks super-twisted and definitely something I will enjoy. I can’t wait to start it!
Paleontology is a subject that fascinates me so this book drew me right away. It also features a plus size heroine and as a plus size gal myself that is awesome!
Another intriguing-looking thriller. IThese books are a draw to me lately. ‘Murder Notes’ definitely looks like something I will enjoy.
I’ll admit it now, it was the cover that drew me to this book but the blurbs sounds really interesting! I hope it lives up to my expectations!
‘The Stamp of Nature’ sounds really interesting. I like the idea of a book that chronicles a man’s life and the trials and tribulations that comes with it.
