stacking the shelves – a weekly meme hosted by tynga’s reviews & reading reality

what I have been up to

Aside from spending money, I’ve still been trying to overcome a nasty stomach bug (which seems to be lingering) so that has kept me pretty much out of commission that last week or so. I have been getting back into playing Dragon Age 2 again (it’s finally backward compatible on Xbox One!) and I’ve of course been doing a bit of reading.

Re-read ‘The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue’ and enjoyed it even more second time round (which was quite a feat as I pretty much adored it first go around too). I just love Monty and Percy. I’m super-excited for Felicity’s book too!

I also managed to get back to the cinema and went to see ‘Breaking In’ yesterday which was not too shabby at all. Looking forward to Deadpool 2!!

spending the pennies: new books

Giovanni’s Room by James Baldwin | One Night With Hemsworth by Eden Findlay | The Preacher’s Son by J.A. Rock and Lisa Henry | Blood, Sweat and Pixels by Jason Schrier

I kept my spending on new books to a minimum this week but I’m pretty happy with the selection. Been wanting to read Giovanni’s Room for ages. When I saw it for £0.99 on Kindle I knew I had to buy it! I also picked up ‘The Preacher’s Son’ (which seems to have picked up some controversy but I’ll still give it a whirl) and ‘One Night With Hemsworth’ (been awhile since I read any romance). I also picked up ‘Blood, Sweat and Pixels’ which appeals to the gamer in me!

I picked up this twelve-book lot on eBay going relatively cheap. I can never resist a vintage book lot! Got some beauties that I haven’t come across before here. I have been meaning to track down a copy of ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll Nights’ for ages. The cover gave me a bit of a laugh as well. The guy in the middle is the spitting image of River Phoenix ! Doesn’t the guy on the left look like a young Rob Lowe? The artist clearly took some inspiration from these two 80’s stars!

The Harper Effect by Taryn Bashford | Ten After Closing by Jessica Bayliss | Ace of Shades by Amanda Foody | Fawkes by Nadine Brandes

I was super-chuffed to be approved for ‘Ace of Shades’ I have been wanting to read it for ages! I am also looking forward to reading ‘Fawkes’ and ‘Ten After Closing’. Can’t remember hearing of ‘The Harper Effect’ but it looks really interesting.

What It Seems by Sydney BlackburnBefore I Let Go by Marieke NijkampRomeo for Real by Markus Harwood-JonesThe Six and the Crystals of Ialana by Katlynn Brooke

‘Before I Let Go’ has been on my radar for a while but the rest are new to me. I love finding new authors and I cannot wait to give to try these new-to-me authors out!
